Black and White Bohasaurus

May 09, 2022 14 Comments
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. ūüėĀ 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.

Upcycled Frayed Denim Scarf

March 14, 2022 12 Comments
I love crafting with denim, so whenever it's time for an upcycle challenge, I round up all the old jeans I can find and get to cutting and sewing! There are just so many things you can create with old jeans. For the March Upcycle Challenge Blog Hop, I decided to create a frayed denim scarf using several pairs of jeans that my kiddos have outgrown. Kids grow so fast, so they're always outgrowing their clothes. I usually donate their clothes, but I like to hang on to the jeans for projects like this one.

Crochet Flower Facial Scrubbies

March 01, 2022 16 Comments

Welcome to the March 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 floral that is sustainable/eco-friendly.  So I decided that I wanted to make a few crochet facial scrubbies that look like flowers. After searching Pinterest, I found this Pin, and followed the pattern on the blog to create my own Flower Facial Scrubbies. Reusable facial scrubbies are eco-friendly because you can use them instead of disposable makeup remover pads and other types of disposable facial pads. I've always wanted to make facial pads to use instead of disposable acne pads. Instead of throwing them in the trash, you wash them with your laundry.
