Crochet Pattern: Carnation

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 8th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 10 Comments
While out shopping I’ve noticed that crocheted accessories are all the rage. So, this week’s crochet pattern is for a white and pink tinged carnation. There are so many uses for this project. You could make several and chain or slip stitch them together to create a sweet, spring accent scarf. You could also make two and attach hair bands for your daughter’s pigtails. Sew a piece of felt and a pin back onto the flower to wear on your jacket. Why not whip up a few to dress up some headbands. They are a perfect handmade alternative to bows for gifting too!

I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream! Who can resist a frosty scoop of homemade strawberry ice cream atop a crispy, crunchy ice cream cone? Sounds pretty good to me right about now. This sweet project whips up in no time and can be used so many ways. You can sew this fat-free cone on a little girl’s dress or a baby’s blanket. You could stitch two together to make a little pouch for candies. Make several and sew them together to make a darling light scarf. You can also switch up the flavor appeal by changing the colors of the cones crowing glory.

Crochet Pattern: French Macaroon

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 24th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
There is a bakery near where I am whiling the winter away in northern California that sells a myriad of macaroons. They are so beautiful in shades of mint green, pink and chocolate. Each one gracefully rests upon the other encased in apothecary jars. I love to stop at the bakery and just admire every little detail they add to their baked goods. So, for those of you who are tempted by macaroons like I am, here’s a crochet pattern just for you. Your kids are sure to love them almost as much as the real thing.

Crochet Pattern: Doll Sleep Sack

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 15th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 5 Comments
I love vintage pattern magazines from the 1940s and 1950s. Each one has several cute and relevant patterns that I can adjust for my lifestyle. Then, there are sometimes some that make me scratch my head and wonder what the designer was thinking! I remember as a child my mom telling me about the bleach bottle crocheted baby beds that were a popular project when she was young. I didn’t have a bleach bottle but I made this little sleep sack for my daughter’s dolly. It cradles her 5 1/2″ (14 cm) doll perfectly!

Crochet Pattern: Ribbon Flower

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 10th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 6 Comments
I am already missing spring. I can’t wait to see all my fall bulbs start to come alive with spring flowers and bring back a rainbow of color to our rather gray yard. This week I decided to try something different and use ribbon instead of yarn. I had so much fun with this project. I think this flower would look sweet on a headband, dress, coat, or as a stylish bow on a handmade gift. One thing I learned while making this project was to be sure the ribbon you use is similar on both the right and wrong sides.

Crochet Pattern: Cabled Mini Bag

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 8th, 2012 by Candace – 4 Comments
While I’m a huge fan of the big tote bag that holds my yarn, patterns, notebooks, wallet, and everything else I can cram in there, sometimes the occasion calls for something smaller. This little evening bag has cables that snake their way up the front and a small flap that just covers the top without covering the cables.
