Crochet Tabby Cat

March 07, 2023 16 Comments
Welcome to the March Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of the Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop (hosted by Julie @ Sum of Their Stories) is to create a sustainable/eco-friendly craft project. This month's theme is Soft, so I decided to crochet a tabby cat using really soft chenille yarn. Both of my kiddos like stuffed animals, especially cats, and sometimes instead of buying stuffed animals, I'll make them. I have noticed that my children (especially my daughter) are kinda rough with their stuffed animals. Sometimes the same day they get their new stuffed friend, they'll come to me asking me to fix a hole in it. Like, already!? But I've found that the stuffed animals I crochet for them, don't end up with holes or other injuries. 😁 I'm not sure if it's because I take extra care to ensure that the toy is very sturdy or if my kids are a little gentler with the toy because they know Mommy made it. 🤷

Potted Cactus Scarf

February 13, 2023 10 Comments
I've been waiting for a couple years for Twinkie Chan to release her Potted Cactus Scarf pattern, and she finally did. I immediately purchased the pattern from her Etsy shop and searched my yarn stash to figure out which yarns to use for this project. My goal every year is to use up as much yarn in my stash as possible. I have a good amount of green yarn, so I gathered all the yarns and got started.

Valentines Day Gnome Scarf

February 07, 2023 21 Comments

If you've visited my blog or Instagram before, you might have noticed that I've crocheted a few Gnome Scarves with different themes/color schemes. Well, I'm back with another one! This time I've created a Gnome Scarf for Valentine's Day.  Like my other Gnome Scarves (Christmas Gnome Scarves, Halloween Gnome Scarf, Fall Gnome Scarf), this scarf was created using the Fall Gnome Scarf pattern by Heidi Yates/Snappy Tots. This pattern is so fun and can be made with a variety of color combinations.

The Wednesday [Inspired] Snood

January 03, 2023 14 Comments
So... Yeah... I watched Wednesday on Netflix, and I noticed the crochet clothing and accessories. I really liked the snood that her friend gave her, and I figured that some awesome crochet designer had already come up with a pattern for it. And, of course, I was correct! And I was happy about it. I decided to follow the Enid’s Snood – Wednesday-Inspired Crochet Snood Free Pattern by The Loopy Lamb. She made the pink version of the snood, but I decided to make the black version that Wednesday wears. The pattern was very quick and easy to follow. For this pattern, you can either crochet with two strands of worsted yarn together, or you can use a bulky or super bulky yarn. I used the super bulky Bernat Softee Chunky yarn.

Seahawks Themes Christmas Tree 2022

December 27, 2022 0 Comments
For the past several years, I have decorated our Christmas tree with a Seahawks theme. I decorate it with blue tinsel garland, dark blue ornaments, green ornaments, silver icicles, and several Seahawks ornaments. I even crocheted a few Seahawks ornaments. Also, I place a crochet granny square tree skirt around the bottom of our Seahawks tree. I made the tree skirt with different shades of blue and green yarns. Usually, our tree is a prelit white tree with blue lights. However, this year.... We have a REAL Christmas tree. This is my frist time ever having real Christmas tree, even though my mom said her family had real trees when she was a kid; we never had a real tree. I always thought real trees were complicated and difficult, but they're not! You just need to water the darn thing! lol
