A Bag and Some Butterflies

Hello everyone!

I am sorry I haven’t been able to blog for a while now. My family has been super busy for the last couple of months. And now I am on the job hunt. I am really excited to get back to working now that my son is 1-year-old. I had an incredible vacation visiting my family back home in Georgia. I made my mother a ton of wash clothes and I made a new bag on the way back home. Sorry there isn’t a pattern I just made it up as I went along.

Fun with Flowers

Another Monday, another fun day for free patterns. And this fun day is a fun day for flowers! OK OK that sounded too much like Dr Seuss I agree lol.

In this weeks update I featured some flowers. Here are the some of the patterns that are free for those flowers. Hope this helps you with your spring and summer projects.

flower pattern crochetThis flower is very cute but I did have a little trouble understanding the instructions at first. But as you can see I was able to work through it.

I’m going to have to frog the brim on this hat. It just didn’t come out right. But it is doing a fine job of modeling this flower. I really like the yellow and orange and I think that I will attach this flower to this hat once it is re-crocheted.

Triple Layer Flower

by Lucy at Attic24

triple layer crochet flowerThis is absolutely my most favoritist…is that a word? It is now!…favoritist flower ever! Love it, you have to try it. And the photo tutorial is amazing.

crochet flowerHere is one I just left a layer off of and it looks really nice as well. I didn’t have any sport weight yarn as the pattern called for. So I worked it with worsted cotton and a 4mm. The flowers are a little large but you have a lot of options with this. You can just do 1-2 layers or you can choose not to do the edging to change the size. They all look nice because of the way you attach into the back of the previous rows petals instead of building up.

Korknisse and Toadstool

Our second fantasy crochet project this week is of a toadstool and korknisse (little gnome like creatures). Adorable!

I really love how bright and cherry this is. Makes me want to get out in the garden myself! Summertime can’t come fast enough.


There are so many little details in this mushroom it really comes to life.


And these Korknisses creatures are beyond cute! Crafting with corks is so much fun and its a great way to reuse and recycle.
