Teddy Bears in the house

Seriously, How adorable are these Teddy Bears???!!! After making the 1st one I had enough yarn over to make the 2nd one! Not bad for 1 ball of Caron Sprinkle Cake! Which is a brand new line of yarn. Love this in Birthday Cake color and it’s self striping so you don’t know what color will be next. So in LOVE with how they came out.  I’ll for sure be adding these to my Etsy shop also! Thanks again to Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me for a GREAT Project!

If you are in the San Clemente area I’ll be adding them there too!  Of course went into work at Michaels last night and picked up some more. I got a new color too! I’ll show you that one a little later! Now to get ready for my Sons Baseball Tournament in San Clemente this weekend! I’m for sure packing my yarn! Let’s see what I get done!  Have a great weekend and until next time…..

Just sharing a little something

So just a little Sneak Peek of what I was working on yesterday…..I’ll share more later promise! Of course if you follow my Facebook page then you’ve already seen them! LOL!   I saw this pattern from another “Crocheter” Blogger that I’ve been following since forever. I want to say it started with her cute Owl Hat Pattern. Sarah Zimmerman at Repeat Crafter Me shared this super adorable Bear and I just had to make one.  If you are a fellow crochet check out her Blog for the pattern. It works up super FAST and EASY!  She’s got some awesome patterns on her Blog and they are absolutely awesome!  I’ll post the finished project tomorrow morning.  Until then thanks for stopping by!

Where has this month gone?

Sponge Bob Mini Rag Quilt

Ok, so I need to get on board with Blogging A LOT more! I mean between school, work, sports and the flu???  UGH! I’m just barely feeling a little better!

Geez I truly had not meant to be MIA for this long!  BUT I do have LOTS to share and I’ll be sharing a little bit every day!

1st up is this SUPER cute “Mini” Rag Tag Quilt blanket and a Crinkle toy that I made with Sponge Bob Fabric!  Love how bright the fabric is!   I just need to wash it a few times to start the ragging process.   I had this fabric left over from making my daughter a Rag Quilt Purse.  I’ve got some more goodies up my sleeve!

Until my next share thanks for stopping, have questions please ask and as always….

Baby Bear Lovey

Well as I mentioned before I added a new item to my Lovey Collection!  I had a customer ask for this sweet bear!  It was my first time making one and I have to say I’m pretty happy with her!  What do you think of the New Sleepy Bear Lovey?  I’ve got a few more coming out soon!

I may just have to try out some different color combinations too!  Any suggestions? I’m thinking I need to add a baby boy bear too! HMMM…..maybe with a baseball cap? Well as always thanks for stopping by!

Crocheted Baby Mermaid Cocoon

Hey Crafters!  Well first I hope you all had a great and safe 4th of July celebration for those who celebrated!  We spent it with Family & Friends and GREAT Food!  I’ll have to share of course my Spinach Dip recipe but also that cake that was there! It was Yummy!

Mermaid Cocoon 1Well on to my finally finished project – Yes as the title of this post said Baby Mermaid Cocoon which I had been dying to make!  I have to say I’m very pleased with how this turned out too!

I found a great video on YouTube which I’ll post the link below for those who maybe interested in making one! Don’t be intimidated it’s really easy once you get the hang of it. I had to change it up just a bit as I wanted my scales to lay just a little differently!

There are 3 videos 1 for the Body, 1 for the Bikini Top and the last for the Starfish headband! Click HERE for the Body part then you’ll see the rest.

 

Mermaid Cocoon 2Materials I used for this project were all Red Heart Yarn – Colors in Turqua, Pumpkin and a little bit of Aran.

I just LOVE the Starfish Headband & The Shell Bikini top!  This would make a great baby shower gift and a super CUTE Photo Prop of your “Little Mermaid”.

These will be in my Etsy shop soon as soon as I take just a little bit better pics! Just had to share before I call it a night!

Well that’s it for now.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the Yummy Spinach Dip Recipe! As always thanks for stopping by and…….

I wanted to share my next project before I head out!

I’ve been wanting to make one of these for awhile now and am finally getting to it!   Any guesses? I started it a few days ago.  As you can see in the 2nd photo it’s much larger now!  That’s where I ended last night! I am loving how this is turning out!

Well time to go make my famous “Spinach Dip” to take to my Aunts house a little later! Ok it’s done I just have to “Taste Test it”  You know gotta make sure it’s good!  Will totally share that with you all! Super Easy & YUMMY too!

Thanks for stopping by and as always…..
