Need some inspiration to trim the gifts? Using candy not only adds a unique touch, but provides the recipients with a second little gift in the process! Here are some ideas…
With holiday baking and cooking, this scrubby will come in handy! Shaped like a Christmas ornament, it’s perfect for the holidays!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this placemat setting project. For a more informal and fun project, work in your home decor colors and omit the stocking silverware holder. Today I’m posting the last part, the napkin rings. Only two rounds and they’re so simple and fast, you can get them done in almost no time at all!
Often the excitement to open a gift comes from the packaging itself. Why not create a gift bag that delights someone even before they pull out the real gift? This sweet and simply bag boasts cinnamon sticks for an added holiday delight.
Larger crochet patterns need more time, so I decided to put together a round up of larger or more time consuming free Christmas patterns. And the best part is, not only are they free, but you still have enough time to get them stitched!
Ready for a Minutes-to-Make free pattern? These cute coasters are textured and remind me of Christmas ornaments. Make a set in Christmas colors for yourself or as a quick gift!
As part of the Facebook Group, Designers Potpourri, we’re stitching an angel for Christmas! Week 4 instructions for our angel are now posted!
Festive holly leaves adorn this textured cup cozy so you can enjoy your favorite hot beverage in style!
I was wondering…what can I design for Mother’s Day that’s small and worked in thread? Coasters came to mind. I love texture and I love defying the traditional “always work in the previous rnd idea” that keeps the boundaries – tight. By stitching in the previous rnd and then working in a round or two below that – it adds dimension to a piece. And did I mention, it’s fun!
I’m shamelessly showcasing all my quick to make Christmas projects! We’re wrapping up our Christmas in July Blog Hop Event and I wanted to share all these quick projects to give you a headstart on the holidays. Don’t forget, pattern books and packs are on sale right now, but they won’t be for long!
With this versatile snowflake pattern you’ll find you can use any yarn and appropriate hook you prefer. Stitch an ornament, an embellishment, or a fridgie. One could even make a garland or swag by crocheting the tips of snowflakes together as they go. The choice is yours!
Stitch up a cute Christmas bag embellished with candy canes. Use the back candy canes to hook over a rack – how much fun is that! And then add a small gift, gift card, or money card for someone special!
Work up a dimensional poinsettia ornament for your Christmas tree this year! Work in all reds, all pinks or even light colors – it makes a lovely and unique ornament!
Who doesn’t love decorating with candy canes and when they have their own sweet and festive crochet cover, all the better. Enjoy!
I have to laugh, I skipped over the original introduction on this new pattern to get the heart of it set up. And then forgot to go back and edit the old information (copy and paste). So when my email arrived in my inbox this morning…I was NOT happy to see the wrong information. Such is the way of life. I hope you enjoy this sweet snowflake garland!
There are a number of granny style miniature stockings around and this one is mine. I designed it many years back but recently updated the pattern and include a larger image. Enjoy!
