It's been a very busy life for me lately, and thats left little time for this blog, but I really hope to change that soon. I've been crocheting when I can, but it's not nearly as much as I want to unfortunately :(
I've been dealing with a LOT of stress the past few months, and so I've decided to take a step back and remind myself of why I began crocheting in the first place, to DE STRESS!
These next few patterns are from some amazing crochet designers and I hope to make all of these in the next few months. I just need a little push, and thought I would give you all some inspiration as well!
Crochet in the summer can be limited, but it doesn't have to be with this super adorable baby flip flop pattern!! Multiple sizes, and endless color combinations make these perfect for little girls or boys! Whistle & Ivy nailed it with this free pattern. Grab it here!
This chevron market bag is perfect for the beach, a trip to the farmers market, or just an every day carry all. Use cotton yarn for no stretching and enjoy all the colorful options you could use to make this adorable and useful bag! Get the free pattern by Cre8tion Crochet here!
These baby sandals by String with Style are SO adorable! You can whip these up in a snap and they can make any outfit pop with color. Get the free pattern here!
Here's another barefoot sandal pattern, this time for the ladies!! These Granny Gladiator Barefoot Sandals are so cool! You could even just stop them at the ankle and make them regular barefoot sandals. I'm a little obsessed with both granny's and barefoot sandals, so I think I'll be making these ASAP. The free pattern is available at Simply Collectible's blog here.
I'm a bag fanatic, and Moogly never disappoints when it comes to making awesome and colorful bags. This Manchester Handbag and matching Sunglasses Case are perfect for any road trip or even a trip to the store! Enjoy the free pattern here!
And last but not least, I've been dying to decorate my car with my awesome crochet skills, and now I finally can! Thanks to Corina from Stitch11, she created this awesome free steering wheel cover pattern! I can't wait to make one myself. Free pattern here, with a link to a console cover as well!
I hope you enjoy all of these awesome patterns! Let me know which ones you liked best. I really look forward to making everything on this list, and can't wait to post pictures when I do!
Hello again!! I know, I know, I've been MIA for a very long time. I can assure you though it hasn't been by choice. I would MUCH rather be sitting and crocheting and blogging than running around doing what I've been doing the past few months. BUT that's life, and you've gotta learn to roll with the punches, right?!
Now that I'm into a new routine, I'm going to start making some more time for crochet and this blog. I hope you guys can bear with me!
I have had time to do a couple small projects over the past week, and I'll share them with you right now, along with the free patterns that you can use to make your own! It's not much, but its a small start to trying to build up my blog again. :)
I stumbled across a picture of this braided infinity scarf on Pinterest (check out my crochet pattern board here!), and I was immediately intrigued by the idea. I couldn't wait to get my hook going and make one myself!
This is such a simple and easy design, as long as you can chain, double crochet, and braid, you're good! I made two scarves and am working on a third now. It's a great easy project to have on hand when you don't feel like focusing on a complicated pattern or stitch count.
I used 1 skein of Red Heart Soft yarn and an I hook. You can find the instructions on how to make your scarf at Rookie Crafters blog here.
Let me know what you think, and what colors you're going to make yours in! Happy Hookin' (:
It's that time of year again. Spring is right around the corner, and everyone is on Pinterest pinning their ideas for spring cleaning and gardening. I actually opened my windows the other day! Here's what I have in progress this week. I've been focusing a lot on my blog lately (creating some awesome new content for you in the future!), so I only have one wip to share today. The pattern is by The Hook Hound on Etsy. It's a really easy to follow pattern with great results!
I was inspired by this upcoming holiday to make this bold green and tan tote bag! I hope to have it finished by tomorrow but for the sake of this post, here it is! The handles will be all tan. Or would you rather it be green in the middle and lined with tan? Leave a comment!
Happy Sunday everybody! I hope you are having a great weekend. I have a great slouch hat pattern to share with you today, and I'm so excited about it! This hat is so me. The colors, the stitch, the way it fits, I just love it. I love it so much I wrote down the pattern to share with you!
This awesome yarn had previously been used for something else, but I ended up not liking it and putting it down for another day. Two years later... it finally caught my eye on my 'wall of yarn' and I decided to make something fun and funky!
