Hearts and bows (&patterns)!

I am more than excited to announce that my exams are finally over and I have plenty of time to do whatever I want! I've already booked tickets for my travel in March and I'm getting prepared for the ballet classes I'll take! It seems like my days will be long again, without anxiety and endless pages of history, politics or economics. Since my creativity is back for good, yesterday I decided to try and crochet some little hearts and a bow. The patterns are really easy, so I thought I could easily share them with you!

 Bow pattern 
Ch.37 sc for 7 rows. Sew the two ends with the same yarn, with 7 sc. Sew the ends. With the same yarn start wreathing what you've knitted right in the middle. Be sure that you do it tightly enough. Sew the end, and your bow is ready! 

 Heart pattern 
Wrap the yarn around your index finger one round and a half and be sure to keep the end out. Ch4, 5 dc, 1tr, 5dc; after you've done the 5th dc, ch3 and end with a slip stitch in the middle.You can control the size of the hole by pulling the end from the round you did at the very beginning!! 

 If you already know how to crochet, both patterns are more than easy. If you don't know, I could try and upload a tutorial!I've also written the american words and abbreviations, which are more widely known, but if you have trouble understanding something, don't hesitate to email me!! Have fun!

This last exam period I experienced the ultimate boredom! I was studying or working and did nothing, yesterday I was in despair, and I left aside studying for a while to create something; honestly, this break gave me back the energy to continue studying and the urge to succeed! Searching for an inspirational idea, I bumped into One sheepish girl (once again!) I saw a post about crocheting edges around cute and quirky illustrations, so I sat down and crocheted this calendar, which you can download for free, and another illustration, that I found on tumblr unfortunately without any source mentioned..(the huge con of tumblr)!

It was a really fun project to do, despite the fact that I had to be more careful, thus not to rip the paper off!Now the first, as you alerady saw, is decorating my door and the other one is on the side of my library - a happy and pop touch in my routine!

 How about you?Did you try anything new lately?

 Have fun!
