Moss Stitch Striped Throw

One of my favorite things about learning to crochet is having the ability to make nice gifts for my friends and family. Being able to use a skill of mine to create something for someone that is different and more personalized than what can be bought has been such a joy. The only negative side […]

Chunky Striped Basketweave Pillows

I’m always excited to have projects that have a purpose before they start, and are not just something that I want to make and then figure out what to do with afterwards. My mother-in-law has been redecorating her living room, and was looking for some pillows to go with two matching patterned chairs. After a […]

Pokemon Nintendo Switch Dock Cover

Shortly after we got the Nintendo Switch a couple months ago, a few reports came out of screens getting scratched from the dock. After seeing different solutions, I was inspired to crochet a dock cover. I found some yarn thin enough to protect the Switch screen without forcing the dock into the wrong position while […]

Summer Drawstring Backpack

Although summer isn’t quite here yet, it certainly feels like it in Florida. Summer seems to bring with it long days where I’d rather have my bag on my back and out of the way, while still needing enough space to carry everything. I’d seen Make & Do Crew’s Suzette Stitch across Pinterest, and have been […]

Chunky C2C Chevron Blanket

Since I began crocheting, I’ve been on the lookout for the correct shades of Florida Orange and Blue for a huge blanket, which has been more difficult than I anticipated. Despite the selection available at all of the stores I frequent, for the longest time I had only found the Crafter’s Secret Cotton, which I […]

Yarn Management System

I enjoy crocheting projects that require graphs. It wasn’t long into my learning to crochet that I followed patterns for a Game of Thrones Pillow and a Harry Potter Pillow. With both of those projects, I was still learning intarsia, and did not think to plan a way to keep my yarn colors organized. When I started […]

Striped Granny Stitch Caron Cakes Triangle Shawl

When Caron Cakes first came to Michael’s last year, I was a little skeptical. While the colors were nice, I like to be in control of my projects. It is nice to not have to work with multiple skeins for the multiple different colors, but the inability to plan where the color changes would occur […]

Simple Flower Mandala Centerpiece

As much as I love making blankets and pillows and scarves, I often feel as though I should be making more practical items. While blankets, pillows, and scarves are generally practical, they start to feel less so the more of them I make. So, when my mother asked for something decorative for her table to […]

Striped Flower Hot Pad

As much as I love designing my own patterns, sometimes I’ll see something on Pinterest and just feel like I have to make it. I’ve seen many versions of these Striped Flower Hot Pads, made by many people and in many different colors, so with much searching I tracked down the pattern on Free Craft […]

Marvel Superhero Pillow

I can hardly believe that this day has come. It has been almost a year since I originally started designing the superhero logo squares, and now my DC and Marvel Pillows are both done! As I mentioned when I posted my DC Superhero Pillow, I had initially planned on making a blanket with 25 Superhero […]
