As Independence Day draws close we tend to think of celebrations, cook outs, and fireworks! Crochet-a-longs are always fun and with the 4th of July looming on the horizon, I designed a doily I hope you like. For me, the design reminds me of something radiating outward – and freedom comes to mind. A commodity we all strive for in one form or another…
I’m so excited that my turn has come up in the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2016! What better way to reduce your stash of yarn, create something beautiful and functional, and yet, lovingly stitch up a gift for someone special on your gift list. For this special CAL, I designed the Ripply Wave Pillow Cover!
Our what’s old is new again bell-shaped potholder/hotpad is back! Just renamed because, after all, there are so many holidays and/or special occasions this potholder could be used. Bells are perfect for New Years (originally named New Year’s Bell Potholder), but also for Christmas, the 4th of July, weddings and more. See if you can think of other occasions! This project is for decorative purposes only. If you plan to use your potholder/hotpad, use cotton yarn!
Twinkle, twinkle little star… create a versatile star coaster perfect for the 4th or any patriotic holiday, or just for a summer’s eve night. Or how about Christmas – it all comes down to color choices!
This fun patriotic plant pot cover also includes two plant pokies; a star and streamers! How much fun is that? And if you don’t want to make the plant cover, work up a utensil holder instead.
I can almost hear the crackling and popping of fireworks on a warm balmy evening as the country celebrates the 4th! Work up a filet runner that depicts this celebration in style – be at home or at the park or beach.
When asked to design a 12-inch square, I had plenty of time. Until several things occured – like putting our home on the market, creating an entire new responsive and mobile-friendly website, coupled with holidays and birthdays… the pressure was on. With the 4th looming in the not to distant future, designing a 12-inch granny and inserting instructions for a Monday’s Minutes-to-Make project all came together. *Phew*
Set the table in style with our beautiful gold star, but this pattern is versatile. Use as an ornament, a photo frame, fridgie, wine bottle top – it’s ready when you are!
Crochet a fun and patriotic star-shaped hot pad for the 4th! Worked with popcorn stitches for texture, dimension and thickness – it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
Our petite crochet doily depicts the 4th in a very patriotic way! Red, white and blue, stars, scallops and more lend beauty and patriotism to a delicate doily that will look great anywhere in your home!
The 4th just wouldn’t be the 4th without the good ol’ red, white and blue. And now with our fun coasters worked in thread and using a variation of the ripple stitch, it’s just gotten better! These pretty and lace coasters are sure to be a hit with the family or at your next gathering!
Work up a patriotic windsock for your patio, deck, yard or home. It’s a fun project that will look great hung from just about anywhere to show off the good old, red, white & blue!
