Heart-Coaster-Bunting-Free-Crochet-Pattern

This is a quick and simple crochet heart that has many uses. I like to sew them onto a piece of felt to make coasters. I use a sewing machine and stitch along the sc boarder. They can also be used as decorations on hats, scarves, skirts, purses, or whatever makes you happy!

Yarn:
Just about any works! Just use the hook to match. This sample was made with Red Heart Super Saver.

Hook:
Sample was made with 4.5mm (US7) hook, but use the size hook that works with the yarn you choose.

Other Notions:
Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Stitches and Abbreviations used:
sl st ~ slip stitch
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
dc ~ double crochet
tc ~ treble crochet
rnd ~ round
beg ~ beginning
sp ~ space

Ch3, join into a circle with a sl st (you can also start this with a magic loop, but for this one I like the open center that you get from the ch3 start)

Simple Rainbow Bracelet

I have a fun and simple pattern for you today! It is a striped bracelet with tied ends. I make many of these bracelets in a rainbow to sell at InsaniTea. They are a best seller of mine! I use Tahki Cotton Classic yarn to make these fun bracelets; though you can use another yarn of your choice with the corresponding hook size, you just may need to adjust the beginning chain number.

Just a quicky

Just a quick post for you before I turn in for the night. Last week when my friend was over here (when I hurt my ankle,) she saw my stack o’ hats for my Max hat pattern, and asked if I could make her and her daughter a matching set.

Max-Hat-Samples

So I picked up some sparklie pink and black yarn when I was finally able to go to the yarn store.

Mother-and-daughter-Max-hats

I think they turned out awesome!! The flower was made loosely from this pattern by Lucy.

Kyla's-Mommy-Necklace

This morning Kyla was wearing all white. She wanted a red necklace. So I grabbed some chunky chain I had laying about, left over from my chain infinity scarves, and tied this together for her. She was quite the happy little one.

only-99-cents

Then off to the store I ran. Look what I found for 99 cents. I bought 3 boxes. Anyone want to come over for tea and caramel wafers?

Lots-o-Craft-Hope-boxes

This weekend I would love to finish unpacking this pile. It is in one corner of the “spare” room ~ one day to be Kyla’s room ~ and is the last of the girls stuff. Mostly off season clothes and books. I think. I have a feeling the Goodwill pile will be large.

DSCF0001-002

The girls brought the large pile of boxes upstairs to stack in another corner of the room. We will have to have another Craft Hope box opening party tomorrow. I really hope to make some deliveries next week.

There are quite a few things I would like to get done this weekend, but we will have to see how my ankle is doing. It is much better, but if I use it too much, I have to stop for a while. That’s fine, I have more knit and crochet to do then I would like to admit.

Well, past my bedtime. We’ll chat again in a day or two. Nighty~night.

Ear Warmers
A free tutorial
by Jessie At Home

Lorraine-Free-Crochet-Ear-Warmer-Pattern-Side

The littles and I wanted to give their awesome principal a Christmas gift. I remembered her helping students out of cars at the drop off door in the snow…with no hat or head/ear covering of any sort. I don’t know if she just forgot, or if she didn’t want to mess up her hair. So I came up with a quick ear warmer pattern that buttons in the back. This is a great way to keep ears warm, without a lot of damage to styled hair!

Lorraine-Free-Crochet-Ear-Warmer-Pattern-Front

Yarn: Size 5, Bulky weight, Loops & Threads Charisma used in sample
about 38yds used

Size: one size fits most adult woman and is adjustable by buttons, however, instructions are included on how to alter for sizing

Stitches and abbreviations used
sl st ~ slip stitch

hdc ~ half double crochet

st(s) ~ stitches

Size alterations: To make warmers longer, start with more chains (2.5 per inch) and increase the number of dc in each row by the same amount. To make it shorter, decrease the chains and dc. To make the ear warmers wider, add more rows, to make it thinner, leave off row 5

We have been rather far behind this year. We just put up the tree a few days ago.

Deck-the-Halls-Christmas-2012

Hopefully this is the last fake tree year. I really prefer real trees, but it wasn’t in the cards this year.

Vada-finding-ornaments-Christmas-2012

The girls really enjoyed decorating the little tree. If we are still here next year, maybe we will find a place for the little fake tree for the girls, and then have a nice sized real one in the living room.

Vada-found-a-snowman-Christmas-2012

There has been a nasty cold making  the rounds through our family, and I was rather under the weather when the tree decorating was happening, so I just snapped some photos from the loveseat.

gingerbread-houses-Christmas-2012

On Friday the girls made gingerbread houses at school. I went in to help. I spent a bit with Vada, and then finished off with Kyla. Thankfully, Celeste (mommy of Vada’s friend) volunteered to help out Vada when I had to go to Kyla’s class.

happy-gingerbread-houses-Christmas-2012

I’m not sure what was so funny, but Kyla was most definitively amused!

want-gingerbread-Christmas-2012

They REALLY wanted to eat those houses!!

yummy-gingerbread-house-Christmas-2012

Yummy!

Work-in-Progress

I have started another little project. ‘Cuz I really need to start a new one…

twirly-work-in-progress

This is actually something I need. I am quite excited about it. I hope to share the finished object with you soon! I think this will be a free tutorial for you when I have the pattern down!

yarn-for-work-in-progress

For this little project, I am using up some end bits of yarn, still left over from Madison and Lexie’s Faerie coats.

Have a lovely week, my friends!
