Crochet Pattern: Watermelon Potholder

As the final few weeks of summer wind down we are enjoying the last of our homegrown watermelons. At first it seemed like we would never run out of our favorite summer treat, but alas they are dwindling. We’ve even taken several to our state fair to be displayed along with the rest of our garden’s bounty. It is so hard to believe that we are approaching the end of August. Before we know it the cool winds of autumn will be blowing. Remember summer by crocheting this easy watermelon potholder. This project makes a great gift!

Crochet Pattern: Sunflower Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on August 15th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
I think sunflowers are one of the most beautiful flowers in the garden. Their smiling faces, which follow the movement of the sun, remind me to always look for the bright side of every circumstance and to turn my back on dark days. I find crochet easily as therapeutic as enjoying a beautiful flower garden. So, I decided to combine the two this week. This project can be whipped up in no time. I plan on making several sunflowers, joining them at the petals, and creating a lacy scarf. Another use for this easy pattern is coasters!

In just a few short weeks it will be time to get the kids back to school! Have you seen all the school supplies flooding into the aisle at the stores? As a kid I was always excited by the back to school goodies. I couldn’t wait to crack open that new box of crayons and take a big whiff of their wonderful waxy aroma. You can’t forget the smell of a pencil being sharpened, no matter how long it has been since you were sitting behind a desk. So, this week, I pulled out my fingering yarn and crocheted this pencil bookmark to keep your place!

This week I created a little mushroom for you to add to your children’s clothing, linens or to make a bobby pin with!
