DIY: Crochet Strawberry

EN

It’s summer and that means strawberry season! And I’m happy to share you a DIY of mine to make your own strawberry of yarn! And quite a very easy DIY as well because all you need is the very basic forces of crocheting. No rocket science!

I make them a lot for my not edible cupcakes and other sweet food as you may notice in my many yarn works but again, strawberries are very eye catching, delicious and of course photogenic.

Tomorrow I’ll be flying to Italy with Ryanair airline (first timer). It’s a budget airline and I’m dead curious about how it will treat me. Hopefully well enough. I never can sleep in a plane so I probably will kill my time with reading books, crocheting and snapping cloud pictures (I can’t wait!).
This also means I’ll be blogging my daily life from this beautiful country and I’ll try to blog accurate as possible!

Stay tuned!

Het is zomer en dat betekent: aardbeien seizoen! En daarom heb ik een DIY over het maken van je eigen aardbei voor jullie in petto! En het is vrij een makkelijke DIY omdat alles wat je nodig hebt zijn je meest basic haak technieken. Geen hogere wiskunde werk dus!

Ik maak ze veel voor mijn niet eetbare cupcakes en andere lekkers zoals je waarschijnlijk vaak hebt gezien in mijn haakwerkjes. Maar aardbeien zijn nou eenmaal fruit juweeltjes, lekker en natuurlijk fotogeniek.

Morgen vlieg ik naar Italië toe met vliegtuigmaatschappij Ryanair (mijn eerste keer). Het is budget vliegen en ik ben dus heel benieuwd hoe het zal bevallen Hopelijk een voldoende. Ik kan nooit slapen in een vliegtuig dus dat betekent dat ik waarschijnlijk een boek gaat lezen, haken en natuurlijk foto’s maken van wolken. Het bloggen zal daarom ook voortgaan in dit mooie land en probeer inderdaad zo accuraat mogelijk te bloggen.

Stay tuned!
