We are done!!! and I think I like my pillow/cushion.

The overlay crochet technique is not hard but it takes more concentration than regular crochet.  

It makes a very compact cloth which is perfect for a lot of things like place mats, doilies, cushions, pillows, wall art, etc.

The yarn I used for this project was 100% recycled from an old project from some years back and I must point out that the yarn looks brand new and so is my cushion 🙂 I am happy!!

So, here is my rendition of the Overlay Crochet:


If you were following this tutorial, feel free to adapt your doily to whatever you need at the moment.

This is the gallery of the whole tutorial:

I hope you give this technique a try, I think you will enjoy it very much.

Take it easy and Crochet on…




We have a long weekend this week because we are celebrating Memorial Day on Monday, May 30th.

It is always nice to have a holiday and this one is extra special because we have a yarn bomb to organize.

In other news: I am happy to tell you that the Overlay Crochet Doily tutorial is over and the final post is coming soon.

 I have decided that I needed a pillow/cushion more than I needed a doily, so, instead of a doily I now have a nice cushion for my “relax chair” 😀

I used up a lot of my recycled yarn and will use up more when I yarn bomb some place in my city, for the 2016 International Yarn Bomb day in June, I will keep you posted…

I have a feeling MTB is going to get crossed off this weekend, you have no idea how much I want to see if I can get acrylic yarn “baby soft and fluffy and warm”.

 Most of the yarn I have used for this blanket, is the simply soft acrylic yarn from Caron, which is a very soft acrylic yarn in itself, but I have used lots of other brands too, that were on sale, so we will see…

Well, let us stop here, there’s more posts to come on the weekend. 

I will be relaxing-working-blogging-visiting with you all this weekend …….so let us connect 🙂

See you soon, stay inspired 😀
