Crochet flowers and felted wine bags.

Kristin på Island hadde nylig et blogginnlegg om heklede blomster (her), med link til instruksjonsvideo på youtube om hvordan hekle blomster.
Fra før kunne jeg bare lage den enkle innerste blomsten, som de på teppet jeg heklet i fjor.
Men takket være linken Kristin la ut, har jeg også nå lært å hekle store blomster med kronblader i flere lag.
.

Kristin in Iceland recently had a blog post about crochet flowers (here), linking to crochet instructions videos on youtube.
From before I only knew how to make the small flower in the middle, like the ones on the blanket I crocheted last year.
But thanks to the link in Kristin's blog, I too have learned how to crochet large flowers with multiple layers of petals.


Heklede blomster i tre stadier.

Crocheted flowers in three stages.


De var morsomme å lage, det går raskt, og det er en fin måte å bruke opp små garnballer som er til overs etter diverse strikke- og hekleprosjekter.

They were fun and quick to make, and crocheting such flowers is a nice way to use up small yarn balls left from other knitting and crochet projects.


Ferdige blomster i tre og fire lag.
Garnet er plantefarget med hhv en blanding av knuskkjuke og krapprot (oransje), grankongler (beige), rødrandskjuke (gråbrun) og reinfann og kobber (grønt).

Finished flowers with three or four layers of petals.
All the yarn is plant dyed. Orange: a mix of birch polypore and madder root. Beige: spruce cones. Greyish brown: redbanded polypore. Green: tansy and copper.



Og et par til.
Garnet er farget med kochenillelus (rosa) og bjørkeblader (gul).

And two more.
These yarns were dyed with cocheneal (pink) and birch leaves (yellow).



Jeg har også strikket og tovet to vinvesker (gaveposer til vinflasker, eller f.eks til en flaske hjemmelaget saft).
Oppskriften fant jeg på nettet.
Vinveskene har fått hver sin heklede blomst til pynt.
Den rosa vinvesken tovet litt for mye, og det måtte mye strekking til for å få den i passende størrelse.
Blomsten ble montert høyt for å få åpningen til å virke litt mindre.

I have also knitted and felted two wine bags (gift bags for a bottle of wine, or perhaps for a bottle of nice home made cordial).
The pattern for the wine bags was found on the internet.
 Both felted wine bags got a crochet flower for decoration.
The pink bag felted too much, so it took a lot of stretching to make it into the suitable size.




Jeg har heklet en vinveske også, bare for å se hvordan det ble. Uten mønster, jeg bare målte etter en flaske.
Den ble grei, men jeg synes de strikketde og tovede vinveskene ble finere.

I have crocheted a wine bag too, just to see what it would be like. No pattern, I just measuring to a bottle. It turned out ok, but in my opinion the knitted and felted bags are nicer.




Håper du har en fin kveld. Takk for besøket :)

Hope you are having a nice evening. Thanks for stopping by :)

De er søde, de vinflaskeskjulere, eller hvad de nu hedder på dansk? Også gode om sommeren, tænker jeg, til at holde hvidvinen kølig! ;)

Ønsker dig en fortryllende aften.

Lovely Hilde. I can't really crochet but hope to learn soon. I really like the 3D ness of them (if that makes sense!)

I'm so happy to see, that my post about the flowers was useful!! :-) I really love the way yours turned out with the plant-dyed yarn and the bags are so cool! :-) They really are easy, aren´t they? Hugs from snowy and frosty Iceland!

Kristín Hrund said...

... and thank you so much for "linking" me!

Anne said...

They are lovely Hilde.The thing I most like about blogging is that you get so many ideas from others' blogs.Thats one idea I would like to try!

Hilde said...

Megan: Så hyggelig at du syntes vinposene var fine :) Ha en fortryllende aften du også!

Datacreata: Yes that makes sence :) I too like that they have the shape of a real flower!

Kristin: Yes, they are easy to make, and so much fun. I really enjoyed making them :)
So happy you posted about the youtube tutorials, I never would have come to think about that myself. So a big thank and a hug to you too :)

Anne: I think so too :) And if you decide to try, I hope you will post a photo. I would love to see :)

Synes de er kjempefine.. Har heklet slike blomster for mange år siden. Veldig enkel å hekle.. De veskene til viner ble flotte, og så pyntet du de så flott!
En fin gaveide til noen som er glad i vin..

Ha en riktig god natt, og sov godt!

How lovely! I admire your creativity and the patience it takes to make such beautiful things...

Yael said...

Wow, such wonderful ideas Hilde! Those wine bags make really lovely presents! I love the flowers too - and I so much admire your self dyed yarn, the colors are beautiful, muted and soft!

Mia said...

Så fina vinväskor, det är ju en gåva i sig själv, med flaska i blir det dubbelt upp. Har lust på något sånt, tänk vilken värdinnegåva att ge bort..en dag, när tiden är där..
Dina blomster är jättefina. Jag virkade såna i mitten av mormorsrutor som duk någon gång på 80-talet, rekomenderas inte, man kan ju inte sätta något uppå, men i dina härligt färgade garner blir dom ju riktiga smycken, juveler :)

The flowers are beautiful, and I very much LOVE the wine bags. I could see myself toting one of those around. :-)

Plant-dyed color is so soft and tender, and the crochet flowers are so lovely. I didn’t have the idea of “wine bag” and now I learned how nice either it is felt-made or crochet-made. Wine bottles would be pleased with these lovely attire. Thank you for sharing.

I just love, love, love the wine bags!

The fact they were dyed with plant material just makes them even better!

Have a great weekend!

Annuk said...

Lovely work, Hilde! It all looks so warm, cozy and soft!

I was just thinking about something like this for a gift I was making my mother. I am so glad I found your post to use the pattern. Beautiful!

Eldbjørg said...

Nydelige blomster! Nå vet jeg hvor jeg skal se når jeg kommer i heklemodus. Strikker bare for tiden.

The flowers are beautiful! I love the colours of yarn, and how they are dyed with natural materials. The wine bags are beautiful too. Do you sell your handmade items? I think you should, because they are beautiful. :)
