Princess Peach Crown

May 31, 2011

Rae was invited to a Princess party which inspired me to crochet a crown. After finding some great patterns on Ravelry, I decided to go a different route and create my own. I wanted to do a crown that Rae would recognize, so I chose Princess Peach. It’s missing the jewels which we think we […]

Kids Crochet Purse

May 1, 2011

For our Sunday School class, I wanted to make a small purse/basket to put their treats in. I wanted to start with an oval base like a purse I had done about a year ago. Since I couldn’t find that pattern, I just winged it. I think they turned out really cute and plan to […]

I was able to finish on scarf for our state’s Special Olympics. I did stripes and was pleased at how it turned out. It will be on its way later today. Not sure how many scarves my state has received but hope they reach their goal.

Crochet for Christmas

December 24, 2010

This year I scaled back my crochet projects for Christmas. I just could not get in the mood to crochet much. A few chapstick holders and a couple of cup cozies is all I did this year. I am working on a baby blanket that I hope to finish by the time the baby arrives […]

Hot Pink Cowboy Hat

August 19, 2010

I’ve been crocheting more cowboy hats. This one is in hot pink and is just adorable. I changed the edging from the Stitch and Bitch pattern since I found the stitch it used to be very hard. It took way too long for me to go around the hat. Think I will take a break […]

This time of year my cups began to sweat as soon as I pour my drink. Fast food cups are the worst to sweat profusely. I decided to make my own drink cozy since napkins work well but only for a while. I’ve tested my crochet drink cozy and it works great. Here is the […]

Pink Girl Cowboy Hat

June 28, 2010

I just decided to re-do the baby cowboy hat instead of frogging the one I had made. I also changed to a pink cotton instead of the tan cotton to make it even cuter. I am really pleased with how the second one turned out as it looks a lot better than the first one. […]
