There's a chill in the air, the leaves have changed, and everywhere I look, I see PUMPKINS! That must mean Halloween is near. This year, to celebrate my favorite holiday, I whipped up this Jack O'Lantern beanie that I am sharing with you today!
It's that time of year again. The weather is cooling off and craft markets are popping up every weekend! I love the fall and I especially love fall themed craft fairs where I can pull out all the stops with crochet pumpkins, beanies, and more. But that also means working long hours with meticulous tasks like weaving in ends and making tags for all my products!
I think we can all agree that Bernie Sanders stole the show during the 2021 Inauguration with his fabulous mittens. I mean, it doesn't get much better than a thick, comfy pair of mittens on a cold winter day. And, naturally, as soon as I saw them, I just knew I had to crochet them. So keep reading to learn how to make your own pair, too!
I don't know about you, but I've started to see the evil eye everywhere. I've seen it in clothes, jewelry, and even home decor! So when I started working on my new granny square tank tops, I just knew that the granny square pattern I was using would be the perfect way to incorporate the evil eye into a new crochet project.

Ah! September 1. Fall is right around the corner and it's officially Spooky Season in my house! That means my house is littered with pumpkins and fall leaves and I am knee deep in yarn working on all my favorite crocheted fall goodies! In honor of the approaching fall season, I thought that I would share my crochet patterns for all my fall motifs.
I'm all for being eco-friendly. That's why when I found my dog, Jasper, started chewing the straps off of my flip flops, I knew I didn't want to throw them away. Thankfully, I had a great a idea for reusing them: crochet sandals! Crocheting these cute sandals out of this old pair of flips flops was actually pretty easy once I got going. This project only takes a few hours to whip up and will leave your feel looking stylish for the rest of summer!
I've been so inspired by all the cute summer tops I have been seeing recently! Between that and all the velvet yarn on the market, I just knew I would have to make a velvet bralette before the summer was over. The result was this super cute and super soft velvet bra that makes for the perfect lounge bra, as well as a great festival top! Keep reading for the free crochet bra pattern!
I've been looking for more and more ways do my part in saving the planet lately. Besides using more reusable crocheted items that I would normally throw away (such as Swiffer duster covers, reusable cotton rounds, and more), I have also been composting and finding other fun ways to reuse what would otherwise be waste- like plastic grocery bags! My favorite way to reuse plastic bags is making plarn (or plastic bag yarn)!
It's that time of year again! We are all gearing up for Christmas and getting out our favorite cold weather hats, scarves, and sweaters. That also means that crochet beanies, hats, and scarves are a wardrobe staple again!
I love crocheting beanies (hints the name Beanies & Weenies)! They are my favorite thing to start with at craft fairs and always make a great Christmas gift. My ribbed beanie is by far my favorite crochet beanie yet and today, I'm sharing my pattern with you! The faux fur pom-pom on top is optional, but I highly recommend it because it is just too cute!
One of my favorite things to crochet for spring, and to have on my craft fair tables, is my mesh soap saver bags! They are so quick and easy to make. And with all of the Lily Sugar N'Cream 100% Cotton Yarn colors available, there are so many pretty color combinations.
These soap savers come in very handy. They work just like washcloths except they save every last bit of your soap. No more wasting the last little bit of a bar that always ended up falling apart and being lost down the drain. These soap savers collect every little bit. And the mesh pattern feels super soft and is great for scrubbing in the shower.
Now, I'm sharing my pattern for these easy and fun crochet mesh soap savers! They only take an hour to whip up and make perfect presents, especially when paired with my crochet bath poufs! Try them out and let me know what you think in the comments below.
