Puppy Mug Hug

I made this Puppy Mug Hug a few years ago. It's so cute, I thought I'd make a post about it. The instructions are at Red Heart. The only thing I would differently now, is add a single crochet border around the top and bottom because I do not like how uneven it is.

Rug Hooked Cushion

I made this cushion a few years ago. It came in a rug hooking kit. My Nan had started it, the first few rows anyway,  and I finished it. Once I finished the hooking part I sewed a square of fleece to the back by hand. First I only sewed three sides so I could... Continue Reading →

Crochet Catnip Balls

This my most popular creation yet. Well, in a cat's opinion. I can't even finish these toys before my cat is trying to play with it. I have to hide the balls that I make to sell because my cat would try to play with all of them. Every cat I give them to goes... Continue Reading →

Crochet Bowser

Back in May and June of 2013, I made an amigurumi Bowser for my dad for father's day. The free pattern can be found at https://shedko247.wordpress.com/2011/10/04/bowser/. There are so many pieces to make, so it's a bit time consuming, but so worth it. Below are progress pictures of the Bowser I made.

Running Tights

    Today after work I made my own running tights. They took three hours to make, maybe a new record for me. I had bought a pattern last year and this is my second time using it. I made an awesome pair before but spilled red wine on them. In the past I tried... Continue Reading →

Racer Back Tank Top

Another snow day! That's two in a row and gives me lots of time for trying new projects. While stuck inside today I decided to make a tank top. I used the purple knit I had left over from my Fleece Lined Neck Warmers. I found a free pattern at onlinefabricstore.net. It's such an easy... Continue Reading →

Toddler’s Mittens

Happy Valentine's Day! We had a snowstorm today so I took advantage of being stuck inside and spent the day making toddler sized mittens. The Children's Mittens I had made earlier were too big, so I found a pattern for smaller ones. This new pattern was still too big though, so I adjusted it to... Continue Reading →

Pop Up Thread Catcher

This weekend past I made a thread catcher. I had found the pattern a while ago but kept putting off making it because I didn't have an embroidery hoop. I finally bought one at Walmart, but it was plastic, so a little more expensive than the wooden kind. Anyway, I'm glad I made the investment... Continue Reading →

Fleece Lined Neck Warmers

Materials: 23" x 10.5" rectangle of fleece 23" x 10.5" rectangle of knit Matching thread Optional: Iron on decal   Step 1: Cut out pieces of fleece and knit Make sure the... Continue Reading →

Crayon Case

Today's project is crayon cases! They are so fast and easy to make, and are a great way to use up extra fabric as they don't require very much. Check out the free instructions at So Sew Easy.

DIY Clothing Labels

I've had this idea in my head for a while now but it has taken me a long time to get around to it. I've used iron on transfers in the past so I began to wonder if I could use them with pieces of ribbon to make labels. I tried it with a piece... Continue Reading →
