They are great!  Combining crochet and beading very successfully!  Are they stuffed or do they cover a bead or do they somehow stand alone?

Love the point that's not a point - they look very elfin.  Very well done!

Ooh - they are gorgeous, Cosy!  I love the frilled edges and the flower.

That's fantastic - the fabric is very appropriate!  I'm sure he'll like the big pockets, too.

Aww shucks - thanks people!
It is rather boho but if you wore the bolero or the skirt with something else I expect you could get a different look.  It matches perfectly because I made sure I had my fabric scrap - our brains don't hold colours in memory.  It's the same with my search for a quilt cover - I take a colour card for my wall colour so it'll match.

In terms of the bolero all I did was trace a top I already had to get the arms right and measured how long I wanted it to be.  I tried to make the back piece longer and either gather or pleat it at the sides so it would drape across the back but it didn't quite work.  Maybe next time?

And I'm pretty pround of the jewellery too!  I think the black wire makes it different - I've mostly used silver before but the black has made it quite professional looking if I say so myself!

I'm not quite sure whether "no comments" is good or bad - any feedback?

My first post - here goes!

Many years ago I was given a stack of beads.  Recently I was going through the tin and found two lots of teal beads which matched so I decided to make this set using black beading wire and a wrapped wire technique:

I took the jewellery to the fabric shop so I could make a matching skirt and ended up with a floor length half circle wrap around.  I'd made a couple before but this was so long I had to do it in panels rather than cut out the half circle in one hit.

So for a long time I wandered around with a scrap of the skirt fabric in my wallet trying to find a matching top.  I ended up getting this fabric.  It's a light black knit with sequins and print.  My scrap is there too.

I traced a top of mine to get a pattern for a cropped cardigan which ties in the front.  It's not that clear because it's on a black singlet top but you get the gist.

And here is the complete outfit.

As I say, this is my first post so I hope the links come out ok!
