All of the infinity scarf and cowl crochet patterns are not only stunning and stylish, they are easy enough to crochet quickly!
This list was inspired by my need to find easy projects I could make while I am recovering from neck surgery. I found so many amazing patterns, I am not sure where to begin… I guess starting with #1 is maybe the best option? Continue reading →
I was going to do a round up of fall wreaths, but instead I thought these DIY fall buntings would be much more fun! They make me want to go dig through all of my fabric bins and paper drawers to see what I can come up with. How about you? Continue reading →
My last post explained how to make t-shirt yarn using old t-shirts. I made this yarn specifically to crochet a t-shirt rug! I will do my best to explain how I made my crochet t-shirt rug so you can try it too. Continue reading →

Lately, I have been on a crochet kick, making scarves for all of the gals I know; but now that the weather is getting warmer, I wanted to think of something else to make. That is when I decided I wanted to try to crochet a throw rug (you can find the tutorial for making the crochet rug here). Continue reading →
One of my resolutions this year is to try projects that use up some of the fabric in my stash rather than shopping for new fabric… I know, it is a tough resolution… But, I am determined to keep it.
Some of the fabrics that are available today are so amazing, it is a shame to let even a small scrap go to waste, so that I why I thought smaller projects would be perfect and jewelry certainly fits the bill!
