Monster Egg Cozy

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 […]

Bear Lovey

I haven’t made that many pieces for babies. The one finished baby blanket I made took a long time. In fact I finished with literally an hour before the baby shower. My baby booties are usually different sizes. So I just shy away from baby items and just usually buy gifts. For some reason I […]

Lizard Bookmark Valentines

It’s nice to have a child that appreciates the things I make her. I made her a lizard bookmark from a free gecko pattern. The best thing about this pattern is that it is all one piece. It works up super fast. My daughter took the bookmark to school where a few kids had expressed […]

St. Valentine Puppet

In Sunday School, we made these cute St. Valentine’s puppets. It’s simple so it was a perfect craft for pre-schoolers. On the website Catholic Icing, she used black pom poms for a beard – not using white so it wouldn’t look like Santa Claus. I could not find black pom poms, so I improvised as […]

Advent Wreath

For Sunday School, I wanted a safe Advent wreath to show the kids. The are pre-schoolers, so I wasn’t wild about using real candles. While Christmas shopping, I found some flameless tea lights that look like a candle burning. They were all white but I knew I could add the Advent colors to the lights […]

The Task Master

My child loves the amigurumi toys that I make. In fact, she gets pretty disappointed if I am making something that isn’t meant for her. This makes my hobby business model a little more challenging if I can never make anything to sell. Right now I am working on a dragon that has been in […]

Mouse Toy

One of the items on my daughter’s Summer list of things to do was to buy a mouse toy for our cat. As we were looking at the mouse cat toys, I decided that I could crochet one just as cute as any of those and save $3-$4. My daughter liked the idea of us […]

Pin It

Tiny Acorns

I made these for a swap. They were on my partner’s wist although they weren’t in crochet but felt. I used embroidery thread for the body and stuffed them with a chick pea. Stuffing wasn’t going so well. Then I used a ribbon to make an acorn top and attached it to a button. Then […]

Crochet Iron Man Arc ‘Light’

Last weekend we watched ‘Iron Man 2’ which was an awesome movie. Of course, being a comic book geek, I have enjoyed the majority of movies based on comic books. I also love Robert Downey, Jr. and am so happy that he is Iron Man. In the movie at the Stark Expo, The audience had […]

Golden Snitch cat toy

I admit that I love Harry Potter. A while back, I took part in a Harry Potter swap and made this Golden Snitch for my partner’s cat. As I was organizing some photos, I came across several finished projects that I have yet to post. I can’t remember exactly where I got the free pattern. […]
