About me

Hi there :-),

My name is Vendula and Magic with hook and needles is my beloved magical world of crochet designs. It is not only my work - but also my hobby, passion - my life. My friends call me Vendulka. You could see this name " Made with love, Vendulka " on the stamp on my pictures. I have two small girls - these little miracles give a sence of my life...

I do knitting from my childhood. The beauty of crocheting I found after my first daughter was born. I love the freedom of crocheting. The way you could use the colors and everything. 

With all of my work I am trying to break the cliché, that the crocheting is boring and outdated technique. I like to show that the crocheting can be funny, colorful, fashionable and cool. I am using many details in my work and sometimes making the details take me same time as crocheting of the main part :-)... But I think that small detail can change something ordinary to something special. It's same like in the life - just depends on the details :-) My patterns are written very in detail, because I really would like to the final products will be nice, that the people would be satisfied with final work, know something new and be proud on oneself, that they made it by their own hands.

I belive in power of the colors and that the colors could bright your days. Therefore is all my work so colorful ..:-)

Magic with hook and needles, crochet patterns

From September 9, 2014:
Some of my favorite and important pictures from my life :-)

At this picture - it is me and parrot, which I found in winter in front of my grandparents house, when I was 4 years old. It was cold, the snow everywhere and in the middle of the garden, there he was, sitting and watching on me. He probably flew from someone. And my grandparents - they rescued him and took care of him for next 25 years. His name was Pepik. He was soo funny :-), he sung some songs, and grumbled when the light was on and he wanted to sleep. He was riding on the stick like on the scooter. When I came to him and whispered him about his beauty - he always begun spread out his wings :-) Oh, I loved this little guy !


History of my patchwork crocheting
In past before I became a crochet designer I made many many hats fitting directly to clothes as a custom orders. You could see some of them in this gallery. I remember every hat I made. It was great for practicing and improving not only my crocheting, but designing also. And one of the request was to make a hat to fit to patchwork tunic... I looooove patchwork. But I can not sewing at that time. And I told to myself, so if they could sew it, why I can not crochet it? :-) It is maybe 6 years ago and I still remember the beautiful little girl, I was making the hat for. Her name was Valinka.
And I think, that something inside of me changed after I made this hat. I started to thinking about my crocheting  directly by different way and I really desired to find my own way.... Not to fit the hats to someone designs, but make my own designs :-) So I have to thanks to Valinka and her mommy, who gave the trust to me and thanks them I could begun spread out my wings like Pepik :-)
This is my first patchwork hat with my first patchwork heart. I never forget it this creation. This hat changed everything :-)

... and can not forget of the patchwork heart, which became my sign :-)
