Crocheting Mandalas

The other day I went bold with cotton yarn. I took line green, light blue, darker blue , hot pink, and baby pink; I knew those colors belonged together somehow. In a matter of an evening, I completed a crochet mandala that is now hanging up over my kitchen pantry. I followed Made in K-Town's pattern which was very easy to follow thanks to the clear instructions and detailed photos. 
Hope you enjoy the pictures I took along the way. 

Have you made a mandala? What colors did you use? How do you use your mandala? 

Happy crocheting!

New baby outfit

Here are some pictures:

The new outfit is available at my Etsy shop.Feel free to send me a message if you would have it. 
happy crafting!  ~ Fabi
