Crochet Patchwork Heart

February 06, 2024 14 Comments
I've admired the Crochet Patchwork Hearts created by Vendulka of Magic With Hook and Needles for a while, so when I saw that the theme for the February Sustainable Craft Challenge was Heart, I knew this would be the perfect project for the challenge. I decided to crochet the heart using yarn that's already in my stash, and instead of using fiber fill, I'd stuff the heart with yarn scraps.

Purple and Teal Crochet Baubles

January 31, 2024 0 Comments
I know it's after Christmas, but I recently had a request to make a set of crochet baubles. I have several crochet bauble color options in my Etsy shop, and this customer wanted a set of the baubles in the same color scheme, so of course  I made them for her. 😊 And baubles/ornaments are always fun to make no matter what time of year it is. In fact, I plan on making some crochet heart baubles soon.

Santa & Reindeer Scarf

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is enjoying the day and spending time with family and friends and good food! Anyhoo, I recently crocheted the Santa's Reindeer Sampler Scarf (pattern by Snappy Tots), and I've used this pattern before a couple times, but in the past, I never put Santa on the scarf. I think I was intimidated by his loopy beard. Well, I finally did it. I finally crocheted that loopy beard, and it turned out all right!

Crochet Snowman Ornament

December 05, 2023 6 Comments
As a crafter, I like to add handmade ornaments to my Christmas tree, and for several years now, I've had a Seahawks themed Christmas tree. Each year I buy and make a few new Seahawks themed ornaments to add to our tree. So I decided to make a snowman ornament with a green scarf and blue earmuffs, so he's wear Seahawks colors! 💙💚

Upcycled Christmas Baubles

For several years now, I've had a Seahawks themed Christmas tree. Each year I buy and make a few new Seahawks themed ornaments to add to our tree. So I decided to take a few old scratched up Christmas ornaments and turn them into crochet baubles with blue, green, and silver yarn. The yarn that I used has been in my stash for years. I used a skein of Red Heart Sports Team yarn and Red Heart Metallic yarn to create these fun baubles.

Halloween Gnome Scarf (Beetlejuice)

October 27, 2023 2 Comments
This yearn I've decided to make a couple Halloween themed gnome scarves. I made one with the tradtitional Halloween colors of black, orange, green, and purple (Halloween Gnome Scarf). And for this one, I decided to go with a Beetlejuice theme. To create this scarf, I followed the Fall Gnome Scarf pattern by Heidi Yates/Snappy Tots, but I used the colors green, black, white, and purple.
