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 […]

Waiting for Spring Wrist Warmers

Even though, as I type this, the city is covered in inches of snow with thick flakes continuing to steadily fall I am optimistic that spring is just around the corner. It’s not that this winter has been horrible – it’s actually been a roller coaster of warm days and somewhat cold days, which is […]

Warm Crochet Gifts

I think the best gifts are warm gifts, especially during fall/winter. You want your loved ones to feel the thought and care you put into their gift and what better way to do this than by literally covering them in warm accessories! The holidays tend to come out of nowhere so I’ve chosen projects that […]

Crochet Mini Pumpkin

Suddenly the air is crisp, the leaves are turning orange, and PSLs (Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes) are in bloom. It’s that period between Thanksgiving and Halloween when Canadians get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather and at Pops de Milk HQ we are not immune to this. In fact, we’ve decided October is our favourite […]

Mini Twine Baskets

A recent trip to Ikea sparked the inspiration for today’s post. As Jason and I wandered through the comfortably chic room layouts of the Ikea showroom, I noticed they had small crochet baskets for bathroom organization. The baskets were made of a very chunky and stiff cord with tight stitches making the fabric very sturdy. […]

Crochet Summer Beanie

For some people the harsh rays of the sun are a welcome treat but for others, going outside¬†means bathing in sun screen and covering every inch of exposed skin. I fall somewhere in between this group of people, applying sun screen to my face (mostly) and occasionally wearing a wide brim hat but more often […]

Amigurumi Eeyore – Part 4

I am excited because this cute little Eeyore finally has a body! And a tail! It’s been a fun project and I’ve enjoyed breaking it up into manageable parts. I hope the tutorials have helped new crocheters and amigurumists in particular. I’d love to know what you thought of the crochet along and if you’d […]

Amigurumi Eeyore – Part 3

The reason amigurumi is such an awesome form of crochet is that it gives the crocheter an opportunity to make something with character. I’m not saying all other crochet projects don’t have character – believe me, there are some scarves and hats that have plenty of character – but with amigurumi you can give your […]

Stitch Away Stress, Lemongrab!

A few months ago I came across a crochet lemon pattern by Twinkie Chan – she made the lemon stress ball last April for Stress Awareness Month – and like with most patterns I saved it with the intention to use it “some day.” For some time I’ve been wanting to crochet Lemongrab. He’s probably […]

Amigurumi Eeyore – Part 2

Hey! I hope you enjoyed the instructions for part one of amigurumi Eeyore! If you found the limbs to be fairly easy and fun to make then you’re probably ready for a little challenge. In this post I will show you how to make Eeyore’s head. I decided to make this part next because, in […]
