Butterfly bag

I started on the butterfly filet bag last week at the London crochet meetup group, I used my butterfly border filet graph and plan to post and make more items using filet crochet during the year. I have some nice beaded filet items lined up also.
The time seems to have flown by since my last post. I have not done much crochet or knitting :( I am currently re-designing the NezumiWorld website to add more sections, information "how to's" and a general revamp. So if there is anything anyone would like added please let me know and a big thank you to everyone who has contacted me with ideas already.
I am also working on another website for a tea business for friends I work with, flowering teaballs (also known as blooming teaballs) hand-tied green tea with one or more edibile flowers added inside, sewn into a ball and steamed. When boiling water is added to one it opens to reveal the flower/ s inside and have a beauitiful aroma. The flowers also flavour the green tea. The opened teaball makes about 3 pots of tea and can be put into a glass of water and used as a scented display for up to a week. They come in individual little embroidered satin bags which look really beautiful but the satin made them so hard to photograph......

With my normal teaching work and just life stuff in general the time just flights by. I will also post some of my students work soon here on the blog, I have been bringing my camera to classes all week. They make beautiful items, I really enjoy teaching the classes and students I have. Saying that, it will be nice to have a few days next week (Half term) to sit back rent a few dvd's and do some crochet. Plus post here on the blog and read friends blogs also.

  1. Thank you for your comments on my Houdini and remarks about movie viewing. I have to say I love your filet butterfly bag. And the tea bags sound really interesting,
