Back to school and fall always reminds me of getting organized. So, I created some tablet and pencil cases to round up your school supplies in cozy organized cases!
Last month’s Darn Good Yarn box came, and I was excited to find out what June’s pattern would be. I had only experienced one box so far, which made the cutest hanging planters, so I knew it wouldn’t be something boring.
When my box came, I opened it and found beautiful blueish green yarn and…butterflies? I was so confused! It turns out they were magnets and were June’s surprise gift. I was pretty excited about that because now I get to find places to put them in our apartment!
Now onto the pattern… Continue reading “Crochet Hugs Booties – Darn Good Yarn Box”
I am so excited to share my latest egg collecting apron with everyone! The inspiration for this apron came from a post my friend, Made by Molly, tagged me in on Facebook of a red, white, and blue beach bag. With it being Independence Day, I knew I had to find a way to make a patriotic version of an apron. And you know what…the apron pattern is PERFECT for an American flag!
I giggled with excitement every time I worked on it. All 15+ hours. Continue reading “American Flag Themed Egg Collecting Apron”
I love subscription boxes. They’re so fun and so many of them give you a taste of certain products or foods. I have a whole list of makeup and beauty products from my ipsy subscription that I plan to buy at some point (I have to get through my samples first!).
A few months ago when I discovered the Darn Good Yarn subscription box, I immediately signed up. A yarn subscription box!? How have I never even thought to seek one out before!? And for $10 + shipping, how could I say no?
Here’s what you get. Continue reading “REVIEW: Darn Good Yarn Subscription Box – May 2017”
As a crochet beginner, it’s very easy to feel overwhelmed by the number of crochet patterns out there. THERE ARE SO MANY. Luckily we can narrow it down by what we actually know how to do, right? 🙂 But even then, let’s say you’ve master single and double crochets, and now you want to try out a pattern with one or both of those stitches. There are still so many to choose from!
I’ve been crocheting since about 2012. My first project was an infinity scarf, and my mom didn’t give me a pattern. I just double crocheted around and around. Pretty easy, but after that I was hungry for more!
The patterns below are some of my favorite crochet patterns for beginners, and the instructions are so easy to follow! That was a huge thing for me. If the pattern wasn’t easy to read, I was moving on. All About Ami is one of my favorites, so I would highly suggest taking a peek around her site for some inspiration!
