Dollar Store Challenge: Seahawks [Inspired] Wreath

    Crochet Pancake Scarf


    As I've said before, I am a huge fan of the crochet designer Twinkie Chan. I adore her food themed scarves, and I've made many of them. I own both her books (Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for the Fashion Foodie and Twinkie Chan's Crochet Abode a la Mode), and I admire her creativity. I really enjoy her breakfast themed scarves. I've made her Buttered Toast Scarf (I even made matching gloves) and the Bacon and Eggs Scarf. There was one scarf I really wanted to make, but the pattern wasn't available. So I had to figure it out on my own, which wasn't too hard...

    Crochet Gingerbread Mug Rugs

    To make this mug rug, I used Lily Sugar'n Cream yarn in Warm Brown, Ecru, Country Red, Black, and Damask Ombre.

  • Crochet Gingerbread Stockings

    As a fan of the Seahawks, I've decided to have a Seahawks themed Christmas. I'm decorating our Christmas tree with blue and green ornaments. I have Seahawks inspired Christmas wreaths. And I've crocheted a Seahawks inspired Christmas Tree Skirt and Christmas Stockings. To create our stockings, I used Red Heart's FREE pattern for Gingerbread Stockings. The yarns I used for these stockings are Red Heart Super Saver in Blue Suede, Glowworm, Grey Heather, and Red Heart Classic in Silver. For the gingerbread men/women, I used Red Heart Soft in Toast.
