Crochet Pattern: Jingle Bell Bracelet

By Rachel Choi – July 17th, 2016 Be the first to comment
Let’s kick off Christmas in July with a festive bracelet! This bracelet is super quick to crochet and uses a very small amount of yarn. Choose your favorite colored yarn (doesn’t have to be Christmas related) and a bunch of bells to make this noisy bracelet. The length of the bracelet can easily be adjusted if needed.
If you’ve crocheted with beads in the past, this pattern will be a breeze to crochet. If this is your first time crocheting with beads, please check out the How to Crochet: Chain with Bead tutorial before working this pattern. The bells are used in the same manner as beads.

Crochet Pattern: Animal Soap Savers

By Rachel Choi – July 15th, 2016 Be the first to comment

Make bath time fun for children by crocheting these cute animal soap savers. Choose from the bear, elephant or lion, or crochet them all! Insert a bar of soap and you’re ready to shower! The soap saver will help lather the soap and replace the need for washcloths. Not only are they cute, but they also create grip on the soap making it less slippery. Soap savers are also great for using up small pieces of soap so there’s no waste. When bath time is done, be sure to hang the soap saver to dry using the drawstring loop.

Crochet Pattern: Little Lacy Star

By Candace – July 13th, 2016 Be the first to comment
In the hands of a crocheter, a circle or ring can grow into a lot of different shapes. This pattern uses basic shaping done around a ring to make a neat little star. You can wear it as jewelry (make 2 for earrings), string together a bunch for a fun belt, or use it as a lightweight but eye-catching keychain. Me? I’m keeping mine for my bookmark collection. crochet_little_lacy_star

Crochet Pattern: Mason Jar Wristlet

By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – July 11th, 2016 Be the first to comment
I use mason jars for nearly all of my beverages. I like using glass instead of plastic, and mason jars carry a certain charm. I have been toting cool water everywhere in a crocheted pouch, now my coffee and tea have been getting jealous. Therefore I’ve designed this cozy for the 24-oz wide-mouthed mason jar in which I carry my coffee each morning. If you’ve seen my other patterns, you are already familiar with my mason jar! image

Crochet Pattern: Half Hoop Earrings

By Candace – July 9th, 2016 1 Comment
Sure a hoop earring with dangling beads or charms in the middle are cool, but what if you want something a little more? The hoops usually don’t come with a way to open them, so stringing beads is out. However, you can crochet around the hoops and make your handmade earrings even more unique. These earrings can be made with hoops of different shapes and sizes–they’ll just have a different look. crochet_half_hoop_earrings

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!
