Well I am done with my latest project! I was done a few days ago BUT needed to take pictures! I have been wanting to make one of these Baby Cocoons for some time now. I am very pleased with the way it’s turned out!
The materials used for this project are Red Heart Super Saver in White & Coffee and the hook I used for this project is Clover Brand Amour Crochet Hook 1049/J. I normally use Boye hooks but lately I’ve been wanting to try out different types and styles. You can see the image and link below. I have to say it took me a little bit to adjust to it but once I got comfortable with it I loved how smooth it was. The handle has an easy grip too! I was able to crochet a lot longer which is always a PLUS!
Well now what will be on my HOOK next???? You’ll have to wait and see – it’s been something I’ve been wanting to make for some time now but just had to finish the “WIP’s” I already had laying around! Ok, I have one more BUT it’s a knitting project! Does that count?? Oh well – thanks for stopping & as always…..
Happy Monday Crafters!!
So I came across this awesome article that I’d thought I would share! Wish I had this when I started almost 30 some years ago! ; ) If you are starting to get “Hooked” on Crochet check this article out! 5 Crochet Mistakes You Really Don’t Want To Make
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
Well Happy “Hump” Day all! It is safe to say that I am for sure “Hookin” on Hump-Day!
But just had to take a quick break to share the finished product! Isn’t he just the cutest??? I LOVE making Lovey’s or Security Blankets and I am super happy with how this one turned out! On the Original pattern it called for “Safety Eyes” which I didn’t have so I ended up crocheting them. But I really like how it came out! You can find the FREE Pattern HERE! Plus there is a new one I’m going to tackle “Captain America” but first to finish my last “WIP”. I had promised myself I would start anything new until they were done. It’s so HARD!!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and here’s a peek at what’s almost done! Not sure if it’s obvious what it’s going to be. Any guesses??
Well need to eat and get back to Hookin’, thanks for stopping by and as always….

Well it’s April 1st – Where did the last 3 months go???? Yikes! Well I have to say this morning I totally April Fooled my son! He was all ready for school and we were just about to leave and I said “Hey, I just got a text and No School today!” Oh you should of seen his face light up! Oh it was priceless! Especially when I told him “April Fools!” LOL! Oh man it was good!
Anyway, I’ve had this Bunny put aside for a little bit and finally pulled her out to finish her! I’m on a Crochet Group on Facebook and there’s a lady there and she just has the most adorable dolls EVER! I’ll have to share one of her Dolls here but will ask permission first!
Anyway it totally got me inspired to finish my Bunny. So glad I did….they will be listed in my Etsy Shop soon just need to take a proper Photo Shoot! I just LOVE her cuteness. If you look close you’ll notice in her rollers those are Tootsie Rolls! Doesn’t she just make you smile?
Thanks for stopping by and as always…..
Can’t believe Spring is here! Sorry to have been MIA it was a super crazy busy end of 2014 and didn’t stop at the beginning of 2015!
I wanted to share a few things I’ve been working on. This time of year is when Baseball starts in my house so let’s just say “It’s all about that BASE” for sure!
I had an order for a Baseball Hat and soon I’ll have some in my Etsy shop! Will post more little peaks on what I’m working on a little later too!
Love how this turned out! Below is a close up of the flower on the hat! Isn’t the button just way to cute!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and as always……
I wanted to share some hats & beanies that I donated in August. So what does 29 Headbands & 34 Beanies look like? Started these on Friday July 25th and they were ALL finished by Monday August 4th! My Mom helped with some of the hats and so did my Daughter & Son-in-law! Yep he loomed a hat!
They went to an Orphanage in Zambia – You can read about the Mission HERE! Loved making them! I have to see if I can get pics with the kids wearing them! I would LOVE to see that!
I hope to be making some more hats for an Orphanage in Mexico that they go to more frequently. I barely made a dent in the yarn that I have.
If you are interested in helping out please let me know. We can get together at my house! I’ll want to plan a “Hookin’ Date” soon! Crocheters, Knitta’s and Loomers welcome! Just want to donate leave me a comment here or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope you all have a great weekend! We’ve got a tournament this weekend so my time will be spent at the ball park! Yes, I’ll have my yarn & bag with me! Wait til you see what I’m working on. Maybe I’ll try to show you just a little teaser!
Hi again! Well here we go…let me just say that the blanket itself is a Granny Square! I made my square about 15 x15 which includes the border.
Ok, next I am sharing a link for the Elephant and the a link for the Banana. I can’t post those directions for the banana since it’s from a magazine.
So here are the Links – This one is for the Blankets with all the different ones you can make http://brittasami.blogspot.se/2012/03/baby-blanket.html and the next one is where I found the banana http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sock-monkey-cuddle-blanket If you have any problems with them let me know.
So now for my directions for the monkey’s facial features: I’ve never written a pattern so I’m going to do the best I can. They are pretty basic and easy I hope! Now you know we all have a different tension and I tend to crochet tight.
I used a size G Crochet Hook for all the features of the Monkey including ears and arms.
For the Head I used a size F hook. This combo worked for me. You’ll just have to play around and see what works for you after you make the Head.
Hello all! Well I wanted to re-share this post from last month which was on the old blogging platform I was using.
I had an order for 4 of my Baby Loveys that I sell in my Etsy Shop. The most popular one is the Crocheted Baby Ella the Elephant Lovey, next is this Monkey. Well I absolutely LOVED how these babies came out and totally missed them when I had to ship them out! I just love how the faces came out!
Gotta Love the Banana in the hand too! I was asked if I had a pattern and gave out most of the links but I made the facial features myself and will post later tonight or early tomorrow.
I’ll post all the links for everything.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin’,
