Crochet Pattern: Apple of My Eye Applique

By Emilee Gettle – November 5th, 2011 5 Comments
I love visiting orchards this time of year and buying apples by the peck or the bushel. Growing up I have fond memories of making apple butter with my grandma in a giant copper kettle over and open fire. The woodsmoke and sweet apple scent filled the air. After cooking down for hours we canned the yummy treat to preserve for the chilly days of winter. This week, I created this applique which can be used hundreds of ways. It would look darling on kitchen towels! As a gift, I plan to sew this on a onesie and embroider, “Apple of My Eye” for a sweet little girl I know.

Dear Husband is Out of Action and My Crochet is Suffering

By Veronica Smith – November 4th, 2011 19 Comments

My Husband is a gym junkie and a typical male. About 3 weeks ago he came home on a Friday (gym day) and said he was sore around the shoulders, not the ‘good’ sore from a good workout, it was actual pain. He goes to the gym 3 times a week. I suggested he have a bit of a break, but he’s male so that didn’t make any sense to him. He then came home the following Monday really sore and by bedtime he was definitely in REAL pain. He popped a large amount of pain killers and acknowledged that maybe he wouldn’t go to the gym Wednesday – I gave up. No sleep that night. By morning he was crippled with pain on the right side back/shoulder and upper arm. His lower arm and hand were numb. Doctors / physio’s / serious pain medication and pending specialist he is still hurting and has numb fingers and arm. It’s been 12 days now.

Crochet Pattern: Sleep Mask

By Candace – November 3rd, 2011 10 Comments
Sometimes it’s hard to get to sleep with all the distracting sources of light out there. If your neighbor has outside lights or someone in your house needs a light on, it can be hard to block out. A sleep mask helps you get to sleep without inconveniencing anybody else by blocking the light where you need it most–around your eyes.

When crocheting, make sure your stitches are nice and dense to get the most out of your mask.

How to Easily Sew Elastic to Crochet

By Candace – November 2nd, 2011 5 Comments

When sewing elastic to fabric, many of us have probably come across instructions that tell us to mark the fabric and stretched elastic, and sew the two together while the elastic is stretched out. It’s a pain, and with crochet fabrics, it may not even be necessary. With thin elastic and the anatomy of your crochet stitches, you can put in some stretch in a way that’s similar to drawing elastic through a casing.

Crochet Pattern: Goldfish Washcloth

By Emilee Gettle – October 25th, 2011 12 Comments
I have a toddler in the house and that means that bath time is synonymous with play time! So I made this little goldfish for her to swim away with. I used old fashion cotton worsted weight yarn for super absorbency. Plus, it will lather up perfectly with her favorite bubble bath. This pattern could easily be adjusted to be a soap saver too! New baby on the way? Are you looking for a shower gift? These little fish are so fast to make, why not whip up a couple and give with a set of bath towels. The new mom will appreciate their playful usefulness!
