  • 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.

    Flowering Cactus Scarf

    My hands have been busy busy busy crocheting scarves and hats for my Etsy Shop and Christmas blankets for my family. One of my favorite scarves to make is the Flowering Cactus Scarf. The pattern is by HelloHappyCrafts. It's a fun and easy to follow pattern. And you can customize this scarf however you'd like. I like to stick to the terracotta colored flower pot for my cactus, and I like to add pink flowers with yellow stamen. So far, I've made two of cacti scarves, and I plan to make at least two or three more soon!

    Witchipoo Halloween Poncho

    For Halloween, my daughter decided that she wanted to be a witch... a nice witch. So I bought her a cute and colorful witch costume from a local store, and then I decided to crochet a hooded poncho for her to keep her warm while Trick-Or-Treating. Last year, when she dressed up as Princess Anna from Frozen, I made her a crochet Cape and Hat like the ones worn by Anna. She loved her Princess Anna Cape & Hat, so I knew I needed to make her a poncho she'd love.
