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 […]

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 […]

Crochet Slipper Sole Stencil - Pops de Milk

Crochet Slipper Soles With Plasti Dip

For a while I had been wanting to experiment on slipper soles with the non-slip rubber coating called Plasti Dip – I was inspired by a post on All About Ami where Stephanie covered the soles on a pair of toddler booties (so cute!). Years later during a trip to my local hardware store I […]

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 […]

Crochet Bear Slippers Pattern - Pops de Milk

Crochet Bear Slippers

Remember when I made these oh so cozy crochet boot slippers? Me too, they were going to keep my feet warm all winter long. And then Jason saw them. And he wriggled his feet into the slippers, wondering why they were so small. I do believe he actually said, “They’re super warm but they’re too […]

November Socks

Well! These socks almost broke me. They were originally meant to be a birthday gift for Jason. He had been wanting a pair of crochet socks, which is only fair seeing as I’ve been making a pair for myself every month for almost a year. I got started – I took Jason’s foot measurements, taking […]

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 […]

September Socks

Ever have those days when you want to check things off your list but there’s so much going on that you barely manage to finish one task? That’s what September was like. Life, as it tends to do, got in the way of crochet (again!). Life has no consideration for my oh so important crochet schedule […]

Lace Crochet Top

Over the last several days I’ve been dedicating my time to finishing this lace crochet top. When I finally weaved in the last end and dunked the finished top into a basin of fiber wash, I almost felt my eyes prick. I’m not gonna lie, it was a challenging project and I struggled. Remember way back […]

A little sneak peek!
