Crochet Pattern: Teddy Bear Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 6th, 2013 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
Each week my five year old daughter watches me create a project for Crochet Spot. Oftentimes she is the source of my inspiration. For a couple weeks now she has been begging me to crochet a teddy bear for her. Any kind of teddy bear was her request. So, this week I made this appliqué to add to one of her shirts. She has already put in another request for a pink one next time. This pattern is really easy and can be adjusted several ways. You can change the muzzle color to a slightly darker or lighter shade, add beads or french knots for the eyes. Have fun! You can also find more applique patterns in the Applique Section!

I have always loved St. Patrick’s Day. My mom would make corned beef, sauerkraut, and all the traditional foods for our American way of celebrating our Irish heritage. While the food was delicious it was also a milestone in the year, which meant spring was right around the corner! After a long winter I was always more than ready to see my tulips again. This week I created this Leprechaun Top Hat Appliqué so you can start embellishing your linens or making pins for your friends. This is also a great project for adding a “touch of Irish” to kid’s clothes or hair accessories.

Our produce is finally starting to slow down in our massive gardens. Looking back, one of our most prolific crops was eggplant! It is one of my husband’s favorite vegetables. It takes a bit of creativity to come up with new recipes to use up our bountiful harvest. Thankfully he never seems to tire of the cooking experiments! This week, since I have so much inspiration around me, I decided to create this eggplant play food pattern just for the fun of it! It is a great scrap saver project. If you choose to use wool yarn you could even felt the eggplant. Have fun!

I just can’t wait to see them peacefully resting on my flowers. In anticipation of their arrival I created this butterfly pattern for you this week. You could use it for a pin or an applique.

Crochet Pattern: Rosette

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on December 29th, 2011 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
I admit I miss my beautiful flower garden, which my family tends from the first crocus to fall mums. So, to satisfy my longing I enjoy crocheting flowers, especially with fingering yarn. They look so lacy and feminine and can be used in a myriad of ways. This rosette can be used as a bow on packages, on a child’s headband, or a pin for a hat or coat. They can be crocheted in no time and can be quite addictive. I hope to make several of these rosettes in a rainbow of colors to join into a lacy scarf that can be worn into early spring.
