For this contest they were looking for anything beach, seashore, or nautical, beach-y, summery colors, animals that live or spend part of their time on the beach, seashell and nautical sailing motifs, etc.
I closed my eyes thinking about the contest’s theme and a romantic dinner heated by the dusk popped into my mind. I immediately picked my needles and my favourite yarns and this is the result:
N2L Seaside Goodies
A Dominican beach, a glass of red wine and the love and company of your other half.
The foamy little waves colour the pink shiny sand into a creamy beige. Algae complete the scenery like a diamond necklace completes a stylish evening dress.
Red, orange, pink, a touch of mauve and a hint of green… the sun is setting.
Close your eyes, can you picture my evening?
A. The N2L Shellfish Backpack Keyring
A very practical keyring, a functional backpack and a cute item to have.
This is not your usual Keyring, it is an actual mini backpack. The finished product measures 10 cm/ 7.5 cm and it can fit all sorts of individual “must haves”: a full size lipstick, an inhaler, a lighter, your hotel magnetic card, several folded notes etc.
Cherry on top, you can use the straps as a belt loop.
Personally, I would attach it to my bathing suit.
It is a fairly easy project that you could finish in a weekend.
B. The N2L Shellfish purse
A functional little purse that will become your most precious item on a night out.
When I go clubbing, I do not like carrying large purses on the dance floor. This little shell proved to be very practical for these kinds of situations.
If worn on the wrist the pearl strap will look like a bracelet and the shell will hang just enough for you to feel it in your palm.
It is spacious and it easily fits several notes, a couple of coins, your lipstick and even a mini perfume. The gap between the closing pearls is small enough to make it safe for you coins.
Last but not least, it is a stylish accessory that will complete your evening outfit.
Last but not least, Thank You to all of you out there who believe in me! Thank You for organizing this contest and for choosing this theme! It really inspired me! Thanks to the sponsors, who have been very generous! Thank You to all the participant!
