One of the greatest feelings that I get is when my daughter asks me to crochet her something. As she had gotten older, she has asked for less items, which is bittersweet because she usually asked for amigurumis. She just doesn’t play anymore. But at school in theatre class, her group is doing a PSA […]

Crochet Notebook

August 20, 2018

It is safe to say that I have more crochet projects that I doubt I will ever finish them all, but it is so much fun to browse patterns. For quite some time, I’ve been tinkering with the idea of writing crochet patterns. I have written a few but that’s about it. But I have […]

Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas

June 28, 2017

Here is a little Zero amigurumi I did a while back. I didn’t have a pattern, and it was one of the first times I had used felt with one of my creations. I wanted the ‘ghost cape’ to be flowing and thought crocheting it would make it too heavy. The felt gave it more […]

Crochet Egg

April 14, 2017

Crocheting Easter eggs is one alternative to both plastic and real eggs. You could even decorate the eggs with buttons, stickers, etc. This is a great little project for leftover yarn. I didn’t create a pattern while working this up, but basically start with a base of 6 single crochets in a round either by […]

If your family is like ours, then you have plenty of plastic eggs lying around the house. After Easter, these plastic eggs take up space and while you can reuse the plastic eggs in useful ways, you can also craft with them. This is my monster egg cozy. Isn’t he adorable? He is very easy […]

Christmas Aftermath

February 6, 2017

I got a wild idea about the middle of November to make everyone crochet beanies for Christmas. I had just had surgery in October and was home recovering thinking I had plenty of time. I compiled my list of hats I needed to make. There were over 50 names on that list and with a […]
