By the time I was 10yrs old I am already interested in crocheting (seeing my mom's creations like bedspreads, doilies, and even an electric fan cover). I'm a stationery fan too. The stationery pads collection from my childhood days are still in a box in our home. I just love their design and scents.

Stationery + Crochet = fresh fabulous idea in my opinion!

It's a bit unique and a way to personalize a simple note. Crochet creations adds more specialness!

I learned to crochet just last year - huge learning curve as I was a knitter many years ago and crochet just didn't seem to make sense to me. Got over that and learning more every month. I'd never heard of crochet stationery before though - looks like a fabulous idea!!

I would love to be entered into your swap, these items are so lovely! Im not a facebooker though....

Love the little pouches for the cards, my DH's aunt made me something similar for my phone. She had been really ill and to help her recover took up crochet. She found it really soothing I think.

Fab way to craft isnt it?!

Oh and by the way thanks so much for all your kind comments re my blog! Yours was one of the first I read and really inspired me to have a go!

What a lovely giveaway!

I really like the idea of crochet stationery, it works really well, especially with those sweet little bags :D

I'm going to reteach myself to do crochet this weekend (I haven't done any since I was a little girl) - really looking forward to it. It seems like such a versatile craft :D

Thanks for entering my giveaway - hope you win!

I always remember my nan knitting and crocheting. She made us ponchos, jumpers,etc when we were kids. It's nice to know that this craft is being kept alive. My neighbour knitted my son little jumpers and hats when he was born...beautiful...
Crochet stationary is a good idea...modern, up to date and makes the piece personalised and special.

I love that star stitch - it reminds me of the beach, strangely. I think my mind is seeing it in raffia.

Thanks for the lovely comments you've left me. Have a lovely weekend.
