Christmas Crochet – a round up

Christmas Crochet – a round up

Christmas 2017 is almost here, and what’s more fun than to add some quick crochet projects to your undoubtedly busy schedule? I mean: a  made-with-love little gift for that special friend, cute little xmas decorations to embellish gifts with, a darling crochet ornament to put on someone’s (or your own) tree for a personal festive touch?

No matter how much I’m hustling for time around this time of year, I always love making a couple of christmas projects. I’ve collected the majority of them here in this post, with direct links to the patterns/tutorials (all you need to do is click on the image), so you can get started right away (and there are even more ideas in my Christmas Pinterest Board …)

As for me, this xmas-making is a typical “win-win” situation: sitting down and taking the time to create something pretty – xmas songs playing softly in the background, candles lit, coffee on hand, wonderdog Mila at my feet. This way I’m putting the “zen” back into my busy schedule, which is just what I think we all need, especially at this time of year.
So, here’s to some happy (xmas) making, sweet people!

Merry xmas!

Love,
Marianne xx

PS: you might want to consider having a batch of the “Dekkers Christmas Cookies” on hand whilst you’re crocheting your little xmas projects 😉 – this is where you’ll find the recipe

  • Wat een ontzettende leuke kerstcreaties, Marianne. Ik begin altijd veel te laat met dit soort dingen. Misschien volgend jaar maar eens eerder beginnen, zodat ik er ook echt plezier van heb. 😉

    Lieve Marianne, ik wens jou en je gezin prettige kerstdagen! Geniet ervan. xxx
