By Rachel Choi – September 5th, 2012 8 Comments

As a designer of many crochet patterns, I’m often asked how I design my own patterns.

My process probably isn’t as strict or structured as you may think! It is a fairly simple and easy process.

Crochet Pattern: Daisy Chain Trim

By Emilee Gettle – September 1st, 2012 Be the first to comment
It is amazing how easy it is to freshen up your home decor for the new season. It doesn’t require a lot of money either. If you have some scrap yarn you can easily crochet this daisy chain trim which can be sewn onto pillows, curtain hems and more! By changing the color of the flowers you can easily update the trim for each passing season. You could also make this trim with fingering yarn which would make a delicate embellishment for nightgowns, baby clothes and fine linens. This pattern is quite addictive and fast to whip up. It is a great project to keep in your crochet arsenal!

Weird Kid, Green Room, Crochet and a Glory Box

By Veronica Smith – August 24th, 2012 16 Comments

1) WEIRD KID
Well we are doing up miss 15-year-old’s room. It’s about time. She’s been in there since she was 3. She has done her part and pulled everything out, thrown broken old things away and given a huge amount to charity. She is currently sleeping in the spare bedroom. She has been ‘saving up’ for this moment. Her 15th birthday just passed and there was no present because she wanted her room done. She will be getting a new bed, side tables and mattress from us. Presents are never that big, however, we were going to do it anyway. She has used her birthday money from others to purchase a new cover for her bed and she is going to purchase, with her own money, a glass display cabinet for her precious things. She has been using the one I had when I was 11. I’ll make some curtains and she will keep her existing floor mat.

2) GREEN ROOM
Hubby is going to paint the walls, since I am a horrible painter. My daughter wants her walls green, screaming green. I suppose apple green is the best I can describe it. For some bizarre reason hubby said YES to this green wall request. Let’s just not even discuss what’s going through my head.
