I love tote bags, and I wanted to make a tote bag to hold my yarns. :) I searched on Ravelry and found this pattern. So, I decided to make it! :) This bag can be very useful. It looks great as a beach bag too! The pattern says to work in continuous rounds, but I worked in joined rounds. I used the same yarns and hook the pattern called for. For the handles, I chains 50 and did 2 rows of single crochets.
I was looking through one of my crochet books and saw this adorable pair of amigurumi koalas!!
I didn't want to make the Mommy Koala, so I decided to only make the Baby Koala!!:)
First, I started to make the head.
Then, I added the eyes and stuffed it.
Next, I cut an oval shape out of black felt and glued it to the baby's face! :)
Then, I made a cute pair of ears and sewed them onto his head.
After that, I made the body and attached it to the head.
After doing this, I was about to give up on making this little guy, because I don't like to make limbs. However, I REALLY wanted to finish him. So, I made all 4 limbs and attached them to his little body. :)
Then!!!!! He was FINALLY done!!! :D I love this little guy... :P
My baby koala is really small. He is probably about 3 inches tall!
This little koala helps Link guard my desk. He's such a good little helper. :)
I hope you enjoyed this post! Please stay tuned for more patterns, tutorials, and more!
Who doesn't love friendship bracelets? I love them, but they were very hard for me to make. Someone showed me how to make them recently, and I am addicted to making them!! :) There are 2 ways that I make my bracelets, but I am sure that there are many more ways to make friendship bracelets!! :)
Just to let you know, I did a serious blog make over. :) Please comment what you think about it!! It took me almost an hour to re design it. :P I hope you enjoy the new design!
Nothing about crocheting today... :( So sorry. BUT! I am going to start something new called Throwback Tuesday. It is basically a new name for Project Updates. :P ( I didn't like the name of Project Updates, so I decided to change the name to Throwback Tuesday) Throwback Tuesday posts are about random things related to crocheting. Hopefully, you will like the posts. :)
Well, that's it for today! So sorry that I haven't been posting that much, but I will try to post more often. (HOPEFULLY!!)
To tell you the truth, I don't like DIY crafts. I find them a little too hard for me to do. :( I like them, but they are too hard for me. When I saw this tutorial, I knew i had to make it. However, I didn't have any bobby pins that i wanted to paint, so instead, I made up a tutorial how to paint your crochet hooks into a different color! I had 2 of the same hooks, and I was sick of the color. So, I decided to paint it into a color that I liked! It turned out well, so I wanted to share with y'all how to paint your own crochet hooks!! :)
Nail polish ( you can use any color you want)
( I used this pretty metallic blue nail polish for my crochet hook
Step 1: Place the crochet hook on the construction paper. Step 2: Paint the top half of the crochet hook. Step 3: Let it dry. Step 4: Turn the crochet hook and paint the rest of the crochet hook. Step 5: Let it dry for 1 hour.
And you're done!! I hoped you enjoyed this blog post. :) Have fun painting your crochet hooks! :P
This week, I went to Joann's and bought 20 balls of yarn.
13 balls are Vanna's Choice yarn, 2 balls are Bernat Cotton Yarn, 2 are Premier Impeccable Worsted, and the rest is Red Heart Soft Yarn. This is the best part. :) All of the yarns ( I even got some additional items which added to the total amount of money) cost me only 74 dollars!
That's it for today... Sorry it was a short post. :) Please stay tuned for more patterns coming soon!
I was on Stephanie Jessica Lau's blog and I saw one of her posts here about some potholders that she made. I loved them and decided to make my own pattern for a potholder. To tell you the truth, I hate to crochet row by row. As the solution, I decided to make a Granny Potholder! :) This post is a step-by-step blog post.
First, I made a Granny Square using this video tutorial. ( Note: You NEED to use the video tutorial because this is a different way to make a Granny Square. Instead of binding off in the middle of the square, you bind off at the corner of the square. If you do not understand what I am saying, you will need to watch the video to understand what I am talking about. )
I started out by crocheting the first round.
Then, i crocheted the 2nd and 3rd round
Then, I crocheted the 4th and the 5th round
After single crocheting into the ch 3 to join, I chained 12
Then I did s sl st into the same ch 3 to form a loop
After that, I chained one and turned the whole piece.
Then, I worked 12 sing crochets into the ch 12 sp.
After that, I binded off and weaved in the loose ends.
And there you have it!! :) I hope you enjoyed this post. If you make these potholders, please send a picture of them to me at email@example.com. I will feature them on a future blog post. :) Please stay tuned for more patterns and tutorials coming soon.
