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 […]

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 […]

Chrismas Elf Mason Jar Cozy

A reader recently asked how she could alter the Santa mason jar cozy to cover the whole jar. I advised her to simply add more rounds but I was really curious about how that would actually turn out. I decided the best way to test this would be to make another cozy, an elf mason […]

Crochet Sandwich Coasters

So apparently back in the day there was a nobleman, the Earl of Sandwich, who liked to gamble all day and all night long. Of course he’d have to eat and one day, so engrossed in a game that he couldn’t leave the table, he got his assistant to put a chunk of meat between […]

So, I heard a new South Park game is coming out soon and naturally my thoughts went to the pumpkin hats I made four years ago. But when I went to look for them I couldn’t find them! How horrible! But no need to fret because it gave me a reason to revisit the pattern […]

As I type this post I think about our massive turkey, thawing in the fridge (it’s been in there since Wednesday) and how I can’t wait to share good food with good people. I also think about how […]

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. […]

DIY Pillow Insert

The Tall ‘n’ Fast Flower CAL is coming to an end, which means a new pillow to decorate our place. But first, a pillow insert. Finding a round pillow just the right size did not prove to be fast and easy. I thought I could waltz in to Michael’s and a 14″ round pillow would be […]

Tall ‘n’ Fast Flower – CAL

Over the past four weeks I’ve been taking part in the Tall ‘n’ Fast Flower CAL (crochet along) hosted by Jennifer at Squirrel Picnic. It’s been so fun and I’ve learned that CALs are such a great way to get things done. I honestly don’t think I would be completing this project this quickly if […]
