50 Days of Features: Day 25

Hi Everyone!

Can you believe it?  Day 25!  We are halfway there! 
This cute and incredibly useful little crochet hook case was made by the lovely lady over at Would You Like Yarn With That? 

TOO cute, right?  This is a great gift for someone you know who crochets... or maybe just for yourself!

50 Days of Features: Day 23

Hi Everyone!

I saw this idea on Red heart today and thought I'd share it with all of you.  I know this isn't a completely "new" idea, but it is a really good one!  I think maybe a rounder vase with a ribbon around the top would be really cute!

50 Days of Features: Day 22

Hi Everyone!

I found this adorable pattern for a wrap today-- isn't it pretty?! 
The pattern calls for Moda Dea yarn, which I have honestly never heard of, but I think that Lion Brand's Homespun or any other chunky yarn would work for this as well.

Check out the pattern here at Coats and Clark.

50 Days of Features: Day 21

Hi Everyone!

I found this pattern while searching on Ravelry and thought I'd share it with all of you. 
If you know someone (as I'm sure most of us do!) who is slightly obsessive with the iPhone game Angry Birds, this would make for a really funny gift! 

The pattern can be found here on Crochet Geek.

Sock Doll Tutorial: Part 1

Hi Everyone!

Is it really possible--- two posts in one day???  Your eyes do not deceive you, my friend!

I finally got around to finishing the first tutorial for the sock doll on dying the socks.  Enjoy! 

                       The 4 small pieces to the left are the tops of the 2 socks in the middle, each cut in half.
                                 The piece to the far right is the top off a longer sock I had.
                              You will only need to dye the 4 small pieces and one of the socks. 
                                                            I hope this is making sense!   

     The only other supplies you will need are: a plastic tub half full (or half empty?) of water, a plastic spoon, and some brown paint (I used one of the small containers you can get at Home Depot.) 

I am sure no one else would make this mistake, but just in case---- ALWAYS make sure to close the lid to you paint all the way!   If you don't, you may end up with this...

Moving on. 

Get a spoonful of paint and mix it into the the water. 

                              Next, dip the socks in the water several times, squeezing them after each dip.

                                  Now just let the socks dry!  The same method works for yarn as well. 

                                    I'll be working on part 2 soon!

Have a great day!

I am SO sorry!

Hi Everyone! 

Let me just say, I am SO sorry for how messed up my 50 days of features posts are right now!  I was not going to be able to have access to my blog all last week, so I tried scheduling the posts.  Obviously that did not work.  I am going to post the days that got skipped and try to fix it all as quick as possible! 

Again, I am SO sorry!

Hey Everyone!

Today is the 4th day in my series of posts on Christmas gift ideas!
I'm sure some of you have seen--and used!-- this incredible tutorial by Heidi Bears for a crocheted African Flower Hexagon, but I thought I would share it anyway for those of you who haven't. 
There are SO many uses for these sweet little hexagons-- blankets, purses, clothing--think of any project and I'm sure you could use them for it!
