CLICK for Babies Newborn Beanie-A Free Pattern

 

If you are a parent, I know that you must be familiar with those heartwarming first moments after you bring your newborn home from the hospital..those moments when you look down into your baby’s eyes and know that your life is perfect…the times when the only thing that will put them to sleep is cuddling against your chest. You have tons work to do but you still stay put and enjoy those moments of pure joy.  Continue reading CLICK for Babies Newborn Beanie-A Free Pattern

Picking Posies Face Scrubby-A Free Pattern

 

When designing the Picking Posies Washcloth for the CAL Central Crochet Along, I ended up have plenty of yarn leftover to play with even after making 4 different washcloths. I thought it would be a great idea to make some matching face scrubbies to go with the washcloths! Putting the 2 together would make such a great set for gifts. You can find the matching washcloth pattern here. Continue reading Picking Posies Face Scrubby-A Free Pattern

Picking Posies Washcloth-A Free Pattern

 

I was so happy to be offered a slot in the most recent CAL Central Crochet-Along! Every Monday from June 18th through August 20th, 2018 several designers will share a new pattern for a free washcloth or dishcloth (to me they are the same thing but used in different rooms! hehe) For this CAL Cascade Yarns graciously provided the designers with yarn support, so all of the washcloth patterns are designed using Cascade Ultra Pima or Ultra Pima Paints. This was my first time working with this yarn, and I loved how smooth and soft it was. It worked up so wonderfully! Continue reading Picking Posies Washcloth-A Free Pattern

I’ve included a list of the designers participating in this event at the end of my post along with the dates when you can expect their pattern to be available.

Sheep Sensory Ball-A Free Pattern

I am happy to be joining the Crochet Charity Drive hosted by Sonya of Blackstone Designs again. Every season a group of designers get together and design patterns that they post for free on their blogs whether it be a forever free pattern or free for the entire season that that particular charity drive is active. The hopes of having them free is that people will use these patterns and then donate the finished items to a charity of their choosing. The theme this time was “Toys.”  Continue reading Sheep Sensory Ball-A Free Pattern

Santa Giftcard Holder-A Free Patten

I know that when it comes to gifts, some people are just so hard to buy for! Gift cards are definitely the easiest option if you ever get stumped. This Santa Gift Card Holder is a great way to spice up the gift of a gift card (those plain envelopes that they come with aren’t so festive)! They are super quick to work up and do not use a lot of yarn at all, making them perfect for scrap yarn in your stash! Stick with a red for the main color to keep the Santa theme, or switch to a green for an Elf version! There is also an option to make this into an ornament to hang on the tree-great for little notes to Santa from the kids! These also fit $1 scratch offs really well too!!

The Dancing Aspen Beanie is a 2 layered beanie that is sure to keep your little one nice and toasty now that it is starting to get cooler out. The bottom hat layer is a fitted beanie and the second overlay layer is a more lacy and open stitch that allows the color from the main hat to be seen through the openings in it. The color possibilities are endless with this hat, so have fun with it!!
