Sustainable Living: 3 Winter Creations

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns, Tutorials and Help on November 20th, 2014 by Tameko Barnette – 3 Comments

Sustainable living is all about what will sustain you; however, it is also about how you sustain yourself. With crochet, we are connecting with a hobby or a profession that is built on sustainable living. The key to sustainable living is recycling; what can be used over and over again or reworked to be used in another way.

In this article, I decided to share three Winter creations with you that can be used many times throughout the Autumn, Winter, and perhaps, even the Spring months as well. They’re just ideas, oldies, but goodies, if you will. During the Autumn and especially during those Winter months, we have to do our best to stay warm and cozy. Below, you’ll find three ideas (plus a quick and easy pattern) that I hope sparks your creativivity for the Winter season.

A Guest Post by Tara Cousins.

I’ve been crocheting a long time, but just recently started making crochet doll clothes for 18″ dolls. Since my little girl just turned 3, she’s finally interested in playing with my old American Girl doll and dressing her up, which prompted me to design my own patterns. The first item I started playing around with making is the doll’s shoes. In fact, they are pretty easy to make and to customize (with a strap, or make into boots). You can also use this basic idea to make baby shoes!

Crochet Pattern: Pumpkin Mug Cozy

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 23rd, 2014 by Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
With the arrival of autumn, everything is orange, brown and yellow, with a smidgen of green. Personally, my favorite color palette. You see it in the trees and the fields, and we celebrate the season with adding these same colors to our décor. Wrap you favorite mug in this autumn inspired cozy to add to the festive spirit. With a band of single crochet and a pumpkin applique practically worked in one round, it’s very simple and works up quick. For another mug cozy, check out last weeks Snowflake Mug Cozy.

The cool days are coming, or already here for some, which means that hot tea in the morning is even more necessary than before, or so we tea drinkers would have you believe. Mug cozies are the funnest way to accessorize your mug because you can design them any way you might choose. There are a handful of ways to make them, but all are very simple and enjoyable. Here is one using some simple stitches and some wintry embellishments! The pattern is made to fit an average size mug, but squeeze it over a taller mug and you might like it just as well.

They look great on everything from onesies to sweaters to jumpers! Appliques can also be a great way to spruce up a tote bag. It is a wonderful way to add a quick, handmade touch to birthday or holiday gift.
