"Granny Mandala Gladiators" Crochet Lace Shoes And Upcycled Technicolor Crochet Sun Mandala Tote Bag

    Newer Older

    About the sandals:

    I've found these fantastic stiletto heels times ago in a second hand shop in nearly unused condition (from the soles it seems to be used only one, max. two times). You already know, that I'm a shop-alcoholic, I had to buy it even if I don't wear high heels and it wasn't exactly my size! XD
    I tought to upcycle it one day since I wasn't that in awe for the upside... Well, this week the time is arrived!!! I've crocheted ten granny circles in different colours, stiffened them a little bit (they are keeping the shape better, but not hard as rock), then added the black picot borders for sewing them together... And voilá! @;) With the lace up closure backside and the high composition (arrives exactly under knees) I'm pretty happy about the result and I can declare this creation the sexyest "babukatorium piece" EVER! Lol!

    About the bag:

    Another lucky find of mine from an Indian market in Italy. Photos can't show how gorgeous the colours are in reality: they are deeeeeep and vibrating... I crocheted other seven circles with the same cotton I used for the shoes and positioned them like a flower mandala on the front of the tote, over the stripes, then attached them with contrasting coloured buttons and double rainbow tulle ribbons in nine colours.

    And now an important changing about babukatorium:

    Due to the HUUUGE amount of stolen photos Princess Babuka decided to add watermark on each picture starting from today. I'll try to create them in harmony with the pictures for not being too disturbing... Until I find the style that suits me best, please be indulgent with me! I'm not a graphic genius! Lol!


    SHAME ON YOU! >:(

      Thank You so much! Unfortunately it doesn't make difference where and/or how I add the watermark: they remove it, cut it out or blur the letters to be unreadable! A week ago I discovered a person who sells my mandala rings with my pictures with watermarks removed!!! No matter how one want to protect His/Her works aweful people find the way to steal them. Best would be make the others understand that stealing images is against law and demage those Artists who they say they are in awe for! People usually don't think about a pattern writer who is paying His/Her bills with designing and selling their patterns... They just put the stolen picures on facebook for free download and in this way they deny the possibility from the pattern writer to live and create other things. There are others who are selling my Tree images as posters without permission and I can't do anything to stop them! :( At the end all this fighting caused me a nervous breakdown and I still have panic attacks every time I come on internet. I only want to create, that's what I'm living for and I won't ever understand people who continue to damege me for ignorance and/or for wickedness!

      people are bad and do not understand the true meaning of art : ART does not mean to steal the creations of others :(
