Reversible Bucket Hats

June 13, 2022 7 Comments
I guess bucket hats have made a come back! I remember wearing them while growing up in the 90s. So when I was deciding what to make for this month's Summer Craft Blog Hop, my mind immediately went to bucket hats! At first, I thought about crocheting a granny square bucket hat, but then I decided to give my hands a rest and sew some instead. I have a bunch of fabric from when I was making masks, so I decided to use some of those fun fabrics to make bucket hats for my kiddos.

TMNT Themed Bohasaurus

May 27, 2022 0 Comments
Earlier this month when I participated in the Dollar Store Craft Challenge, I shared my Black & White Bohasaurus. Well, that was not the first Bohasaurus I made. For the first Bohasaurus I made, I thought it would be cool to crochet it in TMNT colors, so I did! The Bohasaurus pattern by Mama Made Minis is really fun and works up quick, especially since you're using blanket yarn. The Bohasaurus is a mix between a stuffed toy and a lovey blanket, so only the head and tail are stuffed. The body is not stuffed making it extra cuddly like a blanket.

Black and White Bohasaurus

Welcome to the Dollar Store Craft Challenge! Several of my blogging friends and I have each created a project using items from the Dollar Store.  For this challenge, I'm sharing a black and white dinosaur I crocheted with yarn purchased from my local Dollar Tree. It was a really fun and quick project I made using the Bohasaurus pattern by Mama Made Minis. The Bohasaurus is a mx between a stuffed toy and a lovey blanket, so only the head and tail are stuffed. The body is not stuffed making it extra cuddly like a blanket.

Crochet Avocado Scarf

My favorite crochet designer Twinkie Chan recently released a pattern for a crochet Avocado Scarf, so I had to get it and make this scarf! I've never even eaten an avocado before. 😁 Maybe I'll try one soon... Anyhoo, since my favorite color is green, I really enjoy projects that allow me to work with my favorite color. And I'm always looking for fun new patterns to try, so I hope Twinkie Chan keeps those fun scarf patterns coming!

Lacy Mesh Spring Crochet Scarf

April 11, 2022 16 Comments
I've had this Summer Berry Tart Caron Big Cake yarn in my stash for a while, and I'm so glad to finally get to use it for this spring project. Although the name of the yarn includes the word summer, this yarn is perfect for spring, so I used it to crochet a lacy spring scarf for the Spring Crafts Blog Hop Challenge. Last year for this challenge, I created a Crochet Spring Flowers Wreath, which is currently on my front door still colorful and bright! Anyhoo... Back to the scarf... To create this colorful, fun scarf, I followed the Spring Green Lacy Mesh Scarf pattern by Crochet For You. It's a quick and fun pattern.

Fluffy Crochet Duster Cover

Welcome to the April Sustainable Pinterest Challenge hosted by Julie from Sum of Their Stories & Gail from Purple Hues and Me. For this month's challenge, we are using inspiration from Pinterest to create something sustainable/eco-friendly to Welcome Spring. When I think of Spring, I think of Spring cleaning to really get the house ready for the new season. I love to open up the windows to let the fresh air in. I also like to dust off the ceiling fans and make sure there aren't any cobwebs around the ceiling. And at 5'4", that's a struggle! So I recently bought a Swiffer Dusters 360 Extendable Handle Starter Kit, which makes it so much easier to clean the ceiling fans. The Swiffer Duster kit I purchased included three heavy duty dusters. These dusters are disposable, so I thought it would be cool to crochet a duster that I can wash and reuse.  Of course, I searched Pinterest for ideas, and I found a Pin for a Scrubby Duster by Snappy Tots.
