Crochet Bacon Blanket

In the history of the world, few foods have come close to ranking higher in preference than bacon – at least that’s the impression I get when I’ve gone to breakfast buffets and all the bacon is gone. Even when I’ve tried going on a strict vegetarian diet, I’ve found ways to make bacon out […]

Easy Pom Pom Holiday Wreath

This month at work we had a contest to see who could do the best work space decorations – by department or individual. My team and I had a brainstorming session over a pad thai lunch and thought of ways to liven up the office. We got excited and soon decided to go with a […]

Beautiful Crochet Dress

Almost three years ago I decided to crochet a dress. By then I had a good amount of crochet experience but I was in no way ready for the challenge that is lace crochet. I remember finding this crochet dress pattern on Red Heart and thinking, “This looks easy. I bet I could make this […]

Lacy Crochet Bracelet

Have you ever had an awesome outfit ready to go, but felt that it was missing something? I recently went through my wardrobe and felt it was missing something, a bit of je ne sais quoi. My keen fashion senses quickly realized that the lack of appropriate accessory was the issue. Then like sunlight piercing […]

Crochet Doggy Treat Pouch + DIY Food Safe Liner

If you’ve been following me on Instagram you’ve probably noticed a few (ahem, several) photos of Colas, our dog. Colas, which means tails in Spanish, came to us from a rescue shelter over 2 months ago and already she’s found her way into our hearts, making us melt with her soulful eyes and silly antics. […]

Mountain Meadow Wool Review

I must say, this spring has been a bit temperamental. Some days are incredibly warm it almost feels like the middle of summer. Some days are mild and fresh, the way it should be at this time. Other days it’s cold and rainy. And some days…it feels like we’ve gone back to frigid cold winter. […]

Crochet Starfish Time Lapse

One of the first crochet amigurumi projects I ever did was a starfish. Of course, my first starfish didn’t turn out that well. But since those early days of my crochet career, I’ve made several amigurumi starfish and the most recent one was filmed, sped up 12 times, and covered with an awesome chip tune. […]

Crochet Stegosaurus Cube - Pops de Milk

Stuart the Crochet Stegosaurus

In our home, at the height of summer, when it gets really hot and the house plants flourish, I sometimes see a strange creature rummaging through the basil, or chewing on the stems of our English Ivy. It’s hard to make out what exactly it is because it moves so fast, but if I didn’t know […]

Crochet Lemon Earrings - Pops de Milk

Crochet Lemon Earrings

I love spring in Toronto. After such harsh winters, spring is especially pretty here. It is the gateway to summer with bright and cheery colours, and the sweetness in the air from all the blooming flowers! Lemons happen to be bright, cheery, and fragrant, which is why I was compelled to make these super adorable […]

Pops de Milk - Haikyū!! crochet crow

Crochet Haikyu Crow Amigurumi PDF Pattern

This adorable crochet Haikyu crow would not have been possible if it hadn’t been requested by a fan and supporter of handmade work. I was approached on Etsy to design and create a pattern based on a character from the manga series, Haikyu. I was provided with a photo of a plush version and was […]
