Crochet bag from Molla Mills

For some while I have been following a Finnish crochet artist Molla Mills. She is not only a gorgeous girl, but also has amazing crochet ideas and products. Following her recipe from her book "Modern crochet" I crocheted this nice net bag. For the handles I used an old belt, which was cut and sewn.

The book has many other cool home and personal accessories, which are explained in an easy way and have detailed pictures, so even the beginners, like myself, can produce some cool things.

PS: You can buy the book on the Amazon.

DIY: Coffee scrub

Recently I discovered a genius way of recycling - lovely body scrub made of used coffee grounds! Besides dried coffee grounds there are only two other ingredients: sugar and oil. The scrub with coffee gives extra stimulation to your skin not to mention the smell!


1 cup dried used coffee grounds
1 cup sugar
Approximately 1 cup of oil (here I used coconut oil, but any oil would do)

Mix all the ingredients and put in a jar. Enjoy!

DIY: Lavender eye pillow

Recently I discovered the benefits of eye pillows, which has relaxing effects (I didn't even know that pillows for eyes existed!). These are used to relax after yoga, or just to fall asleep. I am really happy for mine with lavender fill (for extra relaxation). It is a very easy DIY project, which doesn't require too many ingredients or skills.

Use only the flowers and not the stems

1. Dried lavender flowers
2. Linseed
3. Some leftover fabric
4. Sewing machine, or you can also sew by hands (after all not much sewing is required for such a small pillow)
5. If you need even more aroma, you can add some lavender essential oil (for me that was't necessary)


1. Sew a small rectangular pillowcase (the size is up to you), leave a little opening for the filling.

2. Mix approximately equal amount of linseed and lavender flowers and fill in the pillowcase. I rolled  a paper tube to make it easier to put the mix in the pillow.

3. Sew the opening and voila!

I would suggest to make a separate removable pillowcase, so that you can change them and keep them clean.

Crochet pullover

The summer is almost over and it is soon time for cozy warm pullovers! After crocheting a huge blanket with bubble stitches and with some leftover yarn, I decided to get into another project, this time a pullover (in total match with my blanket! Wonder if anyone would find me under the blanket wearing the pullover).

The project is still in the process, but it is almost there!

Easiest and healthiest breakfast

Today my day started with this superhealthy breakfast, which is so fresh and tasty! Not to mention the health benefits of chia seeds and berries! It has only few ingredients and easy to make. 

2 dl almond milk 
3 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla sugar 
A handful of fresh berries 

Mix almond milk with chia seeds and vanilla sugar. Let it stay in the fridge overnight. In the morning mix well and add a bit more almond milk if needed. Put the berries on top and viola! If you want it sweeter, add a little bit of honey.

Crochet craze - bubble stitch blanket

Working on a large crochet blanket with bubble stitches. Takes time and lots of money for yarn, but I know it will pay of! The bubble stitch looks complicated but quite easy really. I learned it from this video tutorial.
