Happy Easter Cross Stitch Pattern (Free)

Hi Everyone!

As you know I have learning to cross stitch recently and wanted to give making patterns a try. I found this website called Stitch Fiddle that allows you to create your own patterns and share them with others. It is mostly free, but if you want to have a little more options you can pay a small yearly fee for it. You can also create crochet and knitting patterns on it so I thought it was a great idea! For my second pattern I made an Easter themed cross stitch pattern. It is pretty simple since I am just starting out, but I think it is a nice springy little pattern for beginners. You can find the pattern here.

Here is the completed pattern framed:

I added the hearts, eggs, and flowers to add some spring touches and used pale colours to soften the piece. This was my first framed cross stitch pattern so feel free to give me any pointers and enjoy stitching away.

Happy Easter and thank you for stopping by my blog!

Take care,

Crochet Bunny Hat and Diaper Cover Free Pattern

Hi Everyone!

It is almost the long weekend and time for Easter! I received some free fuzzy pink yarn recently and was wondering what I could make with it. Then I thought since it is almost Easter, I would make a bunny rabbit baby set with a hat and diaper cover. I thought it would be difficult to crochet with this yarn, but if you don’t have to undo it, it crochets like any other yarn. This is my first time designing a diaper cover pattern so there were some sections that I had to redo and adjust. I also adjusted the baby hat pattern for the bunny hat and made some ears to add on top.

Fibi the Fox Lalylala Amigurumi Pattern

Hi Everyone!

This week I want to share with you an amigurumi that I am very happy to have completed! It is the Fibi Fox Amigurumi that I made using Lalylala’s pattern.  I have wanted to make one of these dolls for a really long time and am very glad I finally did! The pattern was pretty straight forward to follow and the final product turned out so cute! Even the little knitted scarf was enjoyable to make. I don’t usually make amigurumi and I always forget that they work up fairly quickly. The only problem I have in making them is crocheting with a smaller hook, but you get used to it.

Here are my results:

Isn’t she adorable? I had a lot of fun making this project and definitely recommend following one of the Lalylala patterns. I don’t usually purchase patterns, but this project definitely made it worth it! I used Kroy’s Sock Yarn for the scarf and Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice, Loops and Thread’s Impeccable, and Red Heart Super Saver for the body.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and enjoy making your own Lalylala doll!

Crossover Crochet Cowl

Hello everyone!

Today I will be sharing a pattern I made up that was inspired by Karin’s Tunisian Cowl. I wanted to Tunisian crochet, but I am not brave enough to try it yet so I just did this in double crochets. I recently bought an afghan crochet hook so I might use that for my first Tunisian crochet project! This project was really simple and with a little folding and sewing it changes the look of the cowl.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Materials
6.5 mm (K) Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn – Roving Yarn (I used Red Heart’s Boutique Unforgettable Yarn – Petunia)
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations – US Terms
CH – Chain
HDC – Half Double Crochet
BLO – Back Loop Only
FO  – Finish Off
DC – Double Crochet
ST – Stitch
SLST – Slip Stitch

Pattern – Cowl
CH 28.
Row 1: HDC in 3rd CH from hook and till end. Turn.
Row 2: CH 1. HDC in BLO in each ST from previous row. Turn.
Continue Row 2 until piece measures 80 cm (~32 inches)
FO. Leave long tail for sewing cowl together. Refer to pictures when sewing the piece. The short ends should overlap for about 10 cm (~4 inches). The slight fold on the top piece should be about 2.5 – 5 cm (~1 – 2 inches).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pattern – Flower
CH 28.
Row 1: *(SC, HDC, DC, HDC, SC) in 2nd CH from hook. SLST into next ST.* Repeat from * to * till end. Turn.
Row 2: CH 1. *HDC into next 5 ST. SLST into SLST from ROW 1.* Repeat from * to * till end.
FO. Leave long tail for sewing flower together and sewing flower onto cowl or a pin. To sew the flower together, roll the completed piece up and sew the layers together.

I didn’t try Tunisian Crochet this time, but I will definitely give it a try in the future!

Crochet Baby Santa/Elf Hat

Hi everyone!

I have seen so many amazing crochet Christmas items online lately and it made me think of the crochet baby hat I made awhile ago. I have this holiday homespun yarn I bought when it was cheap after the holiday season. I like homespun yarn because I always finish projects really fast when I use it.

This newborn baby Santa/Elf hat pattern is from Amber’s The Flighty Crafter Blog. It is an elf hat, but since I made it with red and added a white trim, I think it would work as a Santa hat as well 🙂 This pattern was easy to follow and it seems like you can make it into many different sizes by adjusting the pattern a little. I will definitely be making a different sized elf hat…possibly for myself.

I used the Clover Pom Pom Maker to make the pom pom for this hat. It is so quick and easy to make one with this! If you don’t want to buy a pom pom maker, it is very easy to make ones out of cardboard. Here is a tutorial by Giddyup Workshop to make the discs and here is a tutorial by Bernat Yarns on how to use them.

Here are my results:

I think this will look adorable on a newborn for the holiday season! I really like Amber’s pattern and liked how it turned out using the homespun holiday yarn. I definitely recommend making one for any newborns you may know 🙂

Thanks for visiting my blog! Please feel free to visit my Etsy Store if you would like to purchase the finished item 🙂
