Crochet Pattern: Lace and Ribbon Headband

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 29th, 2013 by Emilee Gettle – 5 Comments
There are so many cute hair accessories in the stores now. The prices range from super cheap to out of this world expensive. I enjoy traveling to craft shows where home businesses sell their handmade goods. I’ve seen many takes on the crocheted headband. This pattern is my own twist by making lace and weaving a satin ribbon through it. The ends of the ribbon work perfect for tying on the headband. These crochet up ultra fast and are great for adults and kids alike. Make several while watching TV to sell at craft shows and bazaars in the spring!

There is something nostalgic about making your own valentines. I love going through antique stores and admiring all the many different kinds of vintage cards, some of which include gorgeous trims. It’s not too early to start making your own valentine cards for the upcoming holiday. This quick and easy kite pattern paired with plain jane card-stock would make a great card. You could also use this pattern as an appliqué for children’s clothing and accessories.

Crochet Pattern: Child’s Cat Ear Headband

The other day, while my daughter and I were taking a walk, a little black kitten and his tabby sibling peeked out from among a stack of haybales. While the tabby cat is only interested in getting fed the black kitten we’ve named Miette has become quite loveable. My daughter is so attached to her new little friend. I crocheted this cat ear headband for her to wear while getting her fall photo taken with her new found feline friend. It seems like cat lovers are often crochet lovers, so I wanted to share this pattern with you too. It can be crocheted in a matter of minutes!

Crochet Pattern: Popsicle

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on May 17th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 4 Comments
As a kid did you ever make your own popsicles? I fondly remember those little plastic molds complete with a popcicle stick lid. It was so much fun to make my own treats. However, I was too impatient to wait for the popsicle to harden. When I went to pull the treat from the frosty mold the stick inevitably slid out and I was left to frantically eat the slushy fruit juice. This week’s project reminds me of a raspberry all fruit bar. It’s a perfect project for kids. Plus, you won’t have to worry about this treat melting!

Crochet Pattern: French Macaroon

There is a bakery near where I am whiling the winter away in northern California that sells a myriad of macaroons. They are so beautiful in shades of mint green, pink and chocolate. Each one gracefully rests upon the other encased in apothecary jars. I love to stop at the bakery and just admire every little detail they add to their baked goods. So, for those of you who are tempted by macaroons like I am, here’s a crochet pattern just for you. Your kids are sure to love them almost as much as the real thing.

Crochet Pattern: Ribbon Flower

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 10th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 6 Comments
I am already missing spring. I can’t wait to see all my fall bulbs start to come alive with spring flowers and bring back a rainbow of color to our rather gray yard. This week I decided to try something different and use ribbon instead of yarn. I had so much fun with this project. I think this flower would look sweet on a headband, dress, coat, or as a stylish bow on a handmade gift. One thing I learned while making this project was to be sure the ribbon you use is similar on both the right and wrong sides.
