Happy Last Day of School Shirt

Because teachers get excited for summer too....

I made this shirt using the FREE svg file from Pineapple Paper Co.
I have a Cricut and Cricut Heat Press, so this was
super easy...but when I started using heat transfer vinyl, I just used my iron and it worked great. Don't be intimated by's super easy and you'll get compliments on shirts you make!!
I bought the shirt at Walmart on clearance for $3.00!
Because teachers live on a budget...

Sweater Addiction!!

Ahhh! Do you ever crochet something and then start planning the same item in a different color before you've finished the first one??? I made this white cardigan using the Patty Cake Cardi pattern from Ravelry.

(It was my first item on instagram to get more than 100 likes!!!)

This pattern is so quick and easy and you can vary the colors to make very unique sweaters.

Here's a second one I made, keeping the sleeves short:

I like using baby yarn (weight of 3 or 2) for baby items; that way they don't get so heavy.
Have a great crochet day and thanks for checking in!!

Collared Sweater

Good Morning! Happy Spring! It's so nice to see all of the snow melted and the grass turning green. I'm definitely ready for spring and summer! Today I'm sharing a collared sweater that I finished recently.

I love how the collar gives it a more "dressy" look. = )
You can find the pattern here.
(There are a lot of other cute patterns on the same site,
I used Loops and Threads Snuggly Wuggly yarn from Michaels...
it's very soft.

Enjoy! Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Baby Dresses!

Hello! Happy Spring...almost! Here in MN, we had another spring snow storm this week; but the sun is shining today and I'm sure all of this new snow will be gone by Easter. Here are a couple of oh-so-cute baby dresses I made recently:

They are both made using the same  video tutorial.
The tutorial is by Wooly Wonders on You Tube and very easy to follow.

I used baby yarn (#3 weight) and these dresses turned out beautifully!

Thanks for checking in and happy crocheting!!

Baby booties

Wow! Once I found this pattern, I 'hooked' (ha, ha!) on making 
You really can make them in 15 minutes or less!
The original pattern uses chunky yarn.
I didn't have any chunky yarn on hand, so I used 
I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.

The fun thing about these booties is using a large hook,
so you're done before you know it!

The light blue pair was made using Loops and Threads Capri 
from Michaels. It's super soft, and a little thicker, so these
turned out beautifully.

Happy Crocheting!!!

March Doilies

 March is right around the corner, so why not decorate
with a few green doilies??? That's my philosophy anyway!!

 This is the same pattern, done with a solid color and then with
a solid center and varigated border.

You can find the chart here.

I hope you enjoy making this little gem...
think of all the colorful possibilities!!

Braided Cowl

Oh! I love this cowl! It's certainly popular right now, especially if you follow @jonahhands on instagram. 

The pattern tutorial is on youtube here.
If you already know how to crochet, it's super simple.
I made mine over a couple of snow days we had in 

First, you make the scarf with all of the loops.

Then, braid all of the loops and add buttons.

It takes 2 skeins of yarn...
in amethyst. (These skeins are 277 yds.) I like this yarn,
but find the softness varies from color to color...
this one is pretty soft; I also bought other colors that seem stiffer,
and not as soft. 
I've worn my cowl and received compliments on it...
it's very easy to make, but looks so impresses
people with your crochet skills!! = )
