Lion Yarn Brands T-shirt yarn basket – Great Home Decor


T-shirt yarn basket Great Home Decor Basket 

Sometimes you simply need a cup of tea and one skein of T-shirt yarn and you are ready to crochet away!

This will be a gift basket for my mum. I purchased some yarn for her and want to presented in a nice way. So here we go three hours later.

I use for that Fast Track T-shirt yarn provided by Lion Brand Yarns – a fabulous brand that is in my Top ten threads and yarns !

Check it out if you have time.

Love the yarn. It;s flat, wide, the grey is divine and feels great on the skin. It will make a great basket.


And yes, you see write , my marker is a bobbin pin for the hair. Don;t laugh it;s easy to use not like the professional marker sometimes are hard to open. I am using a size 10mm crochet hook and if you hurry up so much to get it done in a few hours it;s better to tape your fingers! Blister alert!

And now I ma ready to go! Taped up no blister can build up! A few more rows to go and I am done! I am telling you this colour is divine! Lion Brand Yarns you rock!

The basket is 25 cm wide and 15 cm tall with a base of 15 x 15 cm in square. So one skein, makes a great size basket!


How long did it take you to make a basket?

My favourite Art Supplies

My Fav Art Supplies 


When it comes to art, I think it;s best if you try a lot of different brands out and make sure your hands are getting used to a lot of different pencils, brushes, colours, etc…. Try, try , try and for an opinion.

I studied art and when you do that you kinda work with so many brands and in this time of learning you form your opinion on art supplies.

Being half German I guess it made it easier and I did not have to trial and arrow my way into the art supplies world! I grew up using Faber-Castell and Stabilo as well as Pelikan , etc…

The other half being Romanian I grew up colouring with colour wheels. In Eastern Europe it;s the way to go, and I can only recommend Koh- I-Noor Brand from CZ.

Pastels a little different

Pastels a little different ……



By now you should know, I colour and everything has to be bold and colourful…. so typical of Queensland LOL … I guess specially after living for a few years in New Zealand, ( those who lived there and are not true KIWIS , know what I am talking about) you are tired of seeing black …. Yeah it;s elegant, bla bla … but Black onion look is not IN anymore and it;s damn boring….

But back to the Pastels! 

Like all artists I l have one brand that I love to work with when it comes to pastels, specially SOFT-PASTELS  I love to illustrate with Pastels from MUNGYO

This brand is from KOREA  and is doing an amazing job!

My favourite medium when it comes to illustration is to use watercolour. Well since UNI I liked to experiment and mix colours… I use these Soft Pastels like I use Watercolour Pencils.


Try to draw a line with the soft pastel…. Add a little water to your brush and start colouring.. Are you amazed now? The pastel, specially the soft pastel, acts like wonderful watercolour.

This is my brand to go!

 How do you use Pastels, if any?
