Crochet Pattern: Chick Easter Favor

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 27th, 2013 by Emilee Gettle – 4 Comments
My family and I live on a farm. Each spring I eagerly await our baby chicks to arrive in the mail. It is so fun to receive the box from the post office filled with tiny fluffs peeping away. Occasionally we hatch our own birds and it’s my daughter’s favorite time of the day when it comes time to check on the incubators. Regardless of where you live, in the country, on a farm, or in the heart of downtown you can crochet your own baby chick. This project is great for upcoming Easter celebrations. Don’t forget to add a few treats and trinkets inside the pocket.

Finally, spring is here!

Crochet Pattern: Boot Toppers

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on February 12th, 2013 by Emilee Gettle – 5 Comments
It won’t be long and instead of snow we’ll be enjoying spring showers. I have a trusty pair of rubber boots that I love to tromp through the spring puddles in. I often where them to town or in the garden. When I wear them all day long the hard rubber can rub on my shins. So, I crocheted these boot toppers to cushion my shins and for a chic update to my rubber boots. This project can be made in about an hour or less and it’s a great way to use up extra yarn. It’s also a great project for beginners. Make several in a rainbow of colors to suit your moods.

Crochet Pattern: Pinwheel

Now that we have some breezy warm afternoons upon us I’m sure you’ve been finding pinwheels at the local dollar shops. Kids can’t resist them. Oftentimes we see them for party decor or even replicated with fabric for quilt blocks. This week I decided to try crocheting a pinwheel and this pattern is what resulted. You can use this project to spruce up throw pillows and other home accessories. Make it out of finer yarn and it makes great appliques, pins, or hair accessories. I used two colors for this pattern but you can easily make each blade out of a different color.

Spring is here! I am so glad, aren’t you? I can’t wait to spend my evenings outside as the weather warms up and the daylight lengthens. You just can’t beat the wonderful scent of lilacs, daffodils and tulips in the air. It won’t be long and butterflies will be visiting my garden again too. 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. It’s great for kid’s clothing, totes, and hats. You could also sew it on baby blankets and accessories!

Here comes Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail! It’s time to start crocheting some projects for Easter. This quick and easy bunny is a great pattern for beginners. It is so fast to make and can be used in a variety of ways. It’s also a great scrap saver project for all those extra yarn bits that are lying around. This chubby bunny could be sewn on your child’s Easter outfit, made into a pin, used to embelish linens or baby gifts. If you like chocolate bunnies, then swap out the white yarn for a cocoa brown color. Have fun and happy crocheting this week!
