Mandalas ! 

Maybe have you made your first one out of curiosity, maybe for sad reasons, maybe to pass the time… The thing is, you’ve made the first one,… but not the last because they are SO addictive to make !

Before you know it, you are drown under dozens of mandalas ! Your aunts and grannies all had their share, and you don’t want to use them as doillies, right? So, you NEED to find ways to display them (so that you have an excuse to make even MORE :p)

Here are the ideas I found, please feel free to share yours too !

1. A dreamcatcher

I’ve shown you mine here.

No, it’s no doilly ! It’s a mini-cactus decoration ! That’s definitely NOT the same thing :p

3. A stool cover (or bin cover, here ^^)

Do you remember about my tutorial on how to turn your Ikea bin into a footrest? Well, I’ve just changed the mustache cover by this mandala one !

4. Bag / pouch / purse

I didn’t show you this one because it’s one of my biggest 2015 crochet fail :p I loved it until I got this crazy idea to replace the crochet border by a pleather one… It went completely out of shape and I didn’t have the patience to unsew it all, so now it sadly lays in a closet…  Pattern by Lillabjorn available here 

And here is more, found over the internet :

5. An afghan

One giant mandala or a patchwork of mandalas joined together. I love this idea, but I try to stay away from big projects like that since I just got out my latest afghan

I’m usually not a big fan of crochet clothes but I have to say it’s kind of fun to wear your mandala on your back !
