A Guest Post by Carol Cox.

I made these bags for my grandchild’s kindergarten class, filled with a little candy and a small toy or two. They make quick, cute favors. I also enjoy making and using plarn, after I found out about it on the internet. So uniting one of my favorite holidays with a favorite craft resulted in these small bags. Hope you enjoy making them as I did.

Crochet Pattern: Pumpkin Pin

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 18th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. I love the smell of woodsmoke in the air. Pumpkins and squash in every shade are being harvested and used for decorations. Oftentimes my squash collection finds its way to my oven. Roasted squash, stir-fried pumpkin, cookies and pies all make my dinner table look absolutely mouthwatering. So, when I was thinking up a pattern for this week, this little pumpkin pin found its way off my hook. I added eyes and a smile similar to the happy veggie figurines I’ve seen in Japantown.

Crochet Pattern: Spider

Is Halloween complete without a creepy, crawly spider? Many of us, myself included, could do without them, and that’s what makes them perfect creepy decorations. Luckily, this spider is jonly crocheted and completely harmless. For extra “ew” factor, suspend it from a thread or add lots of tiny googly eyes.

There are lots of lip balm holder patterns, but not many sized for large tubes. For those who happen to like moisturizing with a larger-sized lip balm and want a convenient way to carry it, this pattern makes a basic holder that stretches to fit. If adding to a keychain, you can always loop the end through the key ring before you finish off.

Crochet Pattern: Child’s Cat Ear Headband

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on October 10th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 3 Comments
The other day, while my daughter and I were taking a walk, a little black kitten and his tabby sibling peeked out from among a stack of haybales. While the tabby cat is only interested in getting fed the black kitten we’ve named Miette has become quite loveable. My daughter is so attached to her new little friend. I crocheted this cat ear headband for her to wear while getting her fall photo taken with her new found feline friend. It seems like cat lovers are often crochet lovers, so I wanted to share this pattern with you too. It can be crocheted in a matter of minutes!

I love crocheting play food. As a child my mom crocheted me an assortment of goodies to add to my kitchen collection. I will never forget her handmade surprises she’d whip up for me during my nap times. I suppose these early memories are what keeps me coming back to patterns like this. Today I have a zero-calorie ice cream sandwich pattern for you to indulge in. This little project can be made in a matter of minutes and it is great to keep in your toy stash for when little ones come to visit. Don’t forget about the holidays!
