2014/88 – make a bunny!

This one is an absolutely adorable pattern – for a stuffed bunny!

Unfortunately what you see in the image to the right is all that is available on the website, no tutorial or description of the size of the panel you need to make etc.

Have a go, and post in the comments below what dimensions and hooks you used and maybe include a picture 🙂

2014/80 – in the spirit of Christmas…more stockings! (Miniature ones this time)

I’ve come to realise that I LOVE Petals to Picots. They’re constantly posting stuff I love. Take these stockings for example.

Absolutely freakin’ adorable. Super easy, very cute, and massive scope for customisation. Different accessories, different colours, different fluff, add some shiny bauble-esque beads (or actual baubles?!), or just coloured buttons, the possibilities are endless. These would look great hanging from the tree stuffed with sweets 😉

In fact if you guys make these then send us a picture and we’ll promote your blog, as part of our new ongoing competition for featuring blog posts.

Also don’t forget our free chocolate giveaway, courtesy of Serenata Flowers!

Happy crafting!

A quick sharesies!

This one is less a tutorial and more a picture I found on pinterest that looked cool.

Really love the crochet artwork! And I’m fairly certain we’ve shared some free patterns for coasters, granny shapes, and other designs which you could use to make your own one of these. You could use white circle shapes for dandelion heads, with a thin green chain for the stem and make a picture of flowers and dandelions, or maybe an image of the night sky, or a Christmas tableau…

Have you done something similar? Got any ideas? Tell us in the comments!

Don’t forget about our competition to share your free patterns!

2014/76 – a bit early I know, but I don’t care! Have some Christmas stockings.

I know that lots of “Scrooges” and “Grinches” out there will object and say it’s over a month too early to be thinking about Christmas. Well usually I agree, I don’t think anyone should even be thinking about it until well after Hallowe’en.

BUT

These are absolutely adorable! Cannot resist showing you these. And I am sure that some of you out there already have a mountain of projects waiting for your attention, so you might actually appreciate some advance notice. At least I hope you do!

The full tutorial is on facebook, posted by Littlefolds.

2014/57 – shoe decoration patterns

Our special friend Jane has done it again! She’s designed some really cute shoe embelllishments in the shape of little flowers.

Don’t they look great?

She’s given a tutorial (in UK terms) for some really easy little flowers to try as well as what you can see in the picture.

Take a look!

2014/54 – Granny triangles

You may already have done something similar to this before, such as granny squares or bunting, but I thought that this one looked a little different so might be something you’d like to experiment with. You can alternate row colours quite easily by the looks of it too.

Home-made At My Place have already put this in UK terms, and looks relatively simple.

(Edit: I made a mistake and misread the pattern – it’s in US terms, not UK! Therefore:

US single crochet = UK double crochet

US half double crochet = UK half treble crochet

US double crochet = UK treble crochet)

2014/50 – A very “in” bow tutorial

We’re breaking away from the fruit theme today with something a little more multi-purpose: beautiful bows!

They look so cute, and they are super easy. This pattern comes from a beginner crocheter, so this one is definitely something everyone can do. Plus it’s something I think everyone can use – you could glue them to hair clips or pins, or to a headband (which you could buy or make), or you could attach them to safety pins and wear them like a badge, or add them to collars or bags… The list goes on. You could use them with almost anything so they are definitely an essential pattern to have under your belt!

This patterns uses US terms, so just a quick reminder:

US single crochet = UK double crochet

US half double crochet = UK half treble crochet

US double crochet = UK treble crochet
