It’s My Birthday, Let’s Celebrate!

By Rachel Choi – July 1st, 2016 20 Comments

Yup, that’s right! I’m getting older as I type this. But with age, comes another year well lived and lots of crochet projects checked off the to-do list. Although I do not have any extravagant plans, and will probably go about my day as usual, I think this year I’ll celebrate by wearing my birthday cake hat around the house. It will give me much joy to watch my dogs tilt their heads at me and give me goofy looks. My cats may even try and swat at the candles. Best of all, it will remind my family that it’s my birthday and they have to make dinner and clean the dishes instead of me!

Crochet Pattern: Sporty Pacifier Holders

By Rachel Choi – June 25th, 2016 Be the first to comment

Pacifier holders are great if you’re always loosing your pacifiers. The end of the pacifier holder that is appliqued with a sport ball is clipped to the baby’s clothing while the other end dangles with a pacifier. These holders can also be used for small toys, not just pacifiers! Pacifiers and toys can easily be removed from the holder so that they can be washed. The pattern includes the pacifier holder pattern that you can crochet in an assortment of colors, and the 4 sport ball appliques: baseball, basketball, football, and soccer ball.

How to Crochet an Edging for your Bullet Journal

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – June 23rd, 2016 Be the first to comment

As I have an interest in virtually all things crafty, I have recently become enamored of bullet journaling. Bullet journaling is a relatively new concept that combines a planner, to-do list, and diary into one volume. I have only been bullet journaling for less than two weeks, but I can say it is a system that works well for me and allows me to incorporate my artsy craftsy side into my daily planning. A big bonus is that it really helps to keep me organized!

It occurred to me that crochet could (and should!) be incorporated into bullet journaling. This tutorial focuses upon crocheting an edging for your bullet journal. For the purposes of this tutorial, I will be using a piece of cardstock cut to 4.75 in (12 cm) x 8.25 (21 cm) because those are the dimensions of my bullet journal.

How to Crochet: Entrelac

By Candace – June 21st, 2016 Be the first to comment

Have you tried our other entrelac tutorials yet? If you have, you’ll find this one a breeze to follow, but even if you haven’t, you should be able to follow along. This method for starting entrelac is a lot like the Tunisian entrelac method, but unlike Tunisian entrelac, this method only works for blocks that have an off number of rows.

Crochet Pattern: Airplane with Runway Scarf

By Rachel Choi – June 19th, 2016 2 Comments

Crochet an airplane for the aviation enthusiast and a runway inspired scarf to match! Image your child zoom around in the air with his or her new airplane and land it on the runway. The scarf is designed to be child sized, but can be easily lengthened for adults by adding more rows. The airplane is crocheted amigurumi style, seamlessly in the round like a spiral. My favorite technique is used to created smooth, neat color changes.
