Aztec Dreams

Even though I am crazy busy trying to organise last-minute details for our holiday, I can’t stop thinking about the many crafty projects I want to get started. First on the list, an Aztec inspired crochet laptop sleeve! Now, it could take me a while to get this one going, with the impending holiday and all, but if I manage to get my crochet hook through airport security I will dedicate a good amount of my plane-time to it. If it gets confiscated (sad face) I will just have to keep dreaming about my Aztec laptop sleeve till I get home.

Here is some of my inspiration behind the project…

Aztec shirtever since i saw this techni-coloured dream shirt over on Emma’s blog it keeps cropping up in my mind. it is probably my biggest inspiration behind this project.

Square yellow sauceri am loving all things colourful right now, you may have noticed here, here and here, which is why i am loving this square-shaped aztec saucer from Koffey Cakes.

Aztec printa zig zag pattern similar to this native american inspired print by Indigo 982 will feature prominently in the project.

Aztec nail artof course i found inspiration through nail art – the Zebber Collective have pre-made these aztec nails so all you have to do is stick them on! oh the possibilities…

Aztec earringsthese pretty sand aztec earrings by Ditty Drops are a must have.

Aztec leather overnight bagi love this aztec leather overnight bag by Hoak on Helga.

Now I just need to buy the wool and settle on a pattern! Exciting!

I hope you have all had a great start to the week. Only 9 days till we leave for the US of A!
