This week focuses on my pick for the Top Five Friday Finds in crochet sweets! We’re talking desserts and do these look scrumptious enough to eat. From eclair to donuts and the best part of all, they’re calorie free!
Our pretty thread candle holder cover stitches up quickly and is so pretty for Valentines, Mother’s Day, and Easter. Set a romantic table with a couple of these lovely candle holders!
As part of the Facebook Group, Designers Potpourri, we’re stitching an angel for Christmas! Week 4 instructions for our angel are now posted!
This is the second pattern in our Autumn Harvest Pumpkin Tea Set; the plant pot cover which is worked in post stitches and adorned with leaves. It’s a great way to dress up your houseplants for fall or Thanksgiving. Or if you have Thanksgiving away from home, why not gift the hostess with mum and this pretty cover!
This fun and decorative crochet tea set is perfect for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving! A cute teapot cozy looks like a real pumpkin! And the plant pot cover is a great way to add to your seasonal/holiday table and don’t forget the napkin rings! Over the course of the next three weeks, a pattern per week in the set will be published. For now, here’s your supply list!
Stitch up a basket of apples! These little apples are fairly quick to stitch and you can make them in red or green (or both!). I designed this little apple a few years back and thought it was time to bring it back. I hope you enjoy stitching it – they would look so cute in a miniature crate!
June brings a lot of special occasions and events including Father’s Day, graduations, and summer vacations. But June is also special for June brides. I’ve collected various free patterns from the blog that would be ideally suited for a June wedding – or really, any wedding whether it’s in December or June!
Need dishcloths, BBQ mitts, cozies, or coasters; its covered! And best of all, each speaks with a summer theme that will boost your spirits in a practical way!
We’re finishing up Thomas the Turkey this week! Yay! I hope you’ve enjoyed the CAL (crochet-a-long)! Remember you can make several of the tail feathers up to the last row and make placemats for a complete table setting. I’d love to see your finished projects!
A recent request for this potholder that I designed years back was the deciding factor in bringing it back. Updated instructions with a new larger and better image make it even better than before! For a functional potholder, use cotton! And if you want a fun potholder for summer – work in dark brown for a “chocolate pie!”
We are starting a brand new CAL (crochet-a-long) for this adorable turkey coaster holder. Meet Thomas the Turkey with ripple stitched tail feathers. Crochet coasters are rolled and tucked into each of the pockets and Thomas wouldn’t be complete without a top hat and scrawny legs! While you’re stitching, make up several “flat” tail feathers for placemats! This CAL will be three(3) weeks long.
I love almost everything about fall; the colors, the pumpkins, the gold leaves on the trees and even the scent of fall like there’s a crispness to the air. It was only natural to design a pumpkin cup cozy. Just think how much fun it will be to drink those seasonal coffee drinks too!
Part 6 is purely optional. I’m offering ideas to help make this a faster, easier doily should you want to make more, or sell them. And of course the fun part is the link party! Be sure to add an image of your doily below using the blue button to upload the image from your computer or site online. I’d love to see the beautiful doilies you’ve made!
Yay, we’re starting part 5. We’re wrapping up the doily this week and I know many of you have been anxious to finish. There will be one last week but only to serve as options to this doily for making it faster and easier if desired. I hope you’ve enjoyed crocheting a long and that this doily will bring joy to your Halloween festivities. Thank you for joining me!
