Crochet Tutorial: Bunch of Grapes Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Bunch of Grapes Amigurumi

I’m “grape-ful” that we are about to wind down another year of puns! Everyone has done a “grape” job with sharing even more puns and projects along the way. I think we all did a whole “bunch” for “raisin” awareness how punny Valentine’s Day can be. I was a bit “crushed” and practically let out a little “wine” when I was struggling with ideas for this segment. Now, I am “raisin” the roof as we near the finish line! I believe this year we kept “raisin” the bar with these “grape” punny ideas! Together we make a “grape” bunch!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this project:

Crochet Tutorial: Octopus Keychain

Crochet Tutorial: Octopus Keychain

Wouldn’t it be awesome to have more “arms” to crochet? I think it would be “ink-redible,” and I am not “squidding!” I would be well “armed” to take on any project and could “octopi” my time more efficiently! I would “squeeze” a lot more projects into my schedule and would “sea” a boost in productivity! I would be “kraken” down every day! I wouldn’t be a “sucker” and make each day “i-tentacle.” No. I would change it up so I “squidn’t” get bored. That way when Valentine’s Day “floats” by, I can “seas” the day, wrap my “arms” around my sweetie, and have time to “cuttle” with the one who “octopis” my heart.

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this keychain:

Crochet Tutorial: Egg Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Egg Amigurumi

I’ve been a little “terra-fried” to try another year of Valentine Puns. I was so “eggs-cited” to give it a “fry,” but at the last minute I “scrambled” to come up with some funny, punny projects. So, I sat down with an “egg-spresso” and got to work on seven new puns that are pretty “egg-cellent” if you ask me! I hope these are “eggs-actly” what you are looking for this Valentine’s season! I love making up these ridiculous “yolks” and I hope they “crack” you up as much as they do for me! Ok, Ok, “omelette” this slide by for now and I “shell” put the puns to rest. I am sure you all are “shell-abrating” today’s stream of punny-ness is over!

Crochet Tutorial: Butterfly Lovey

Crochet Tutorial: Butterfly Lovey

“Butterflies can’t see their wings. They cannot see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can…”

Today’s project is this darling Butterfly Lovey. I love the three dimensional look of this piece. You can get as creative as you like with this project! I can imagine the variety of vivid hues one can use to make this sweet lovey for a child or adult.

This could be a great scrap yarn project. Make one or more and attach them for a unique 3D blanket or throw by piecing these squares together. Match a nursery or bedroom for your child.

Butterflies bring out something in all of us. Maybe since they are often beyond our grasp. We love to watch them flutter through the air on the lightness of their wings upon which we can send out wishes out into the world.

Crochet Tutorial: Tic Tac Toe Game and Tote

Crochet Tutorial: Tic Tac Toe Game and Tote

Summer is here and the kids are home all day long! What better way to bring in the summer than with great activities that don’t require the TV or any electronic devices.

Do you have a roadtrip planned? How about a day at the beach? Camping anyone? No matter where you go, even if it is just outside to your back yard, this totable Tic-Tac-Toe game board will promise loads of entertainment for all ages. Perfect for around the campfire when you are hanging out with the kids, perfect to pull out at the beach for some fun in the sand, perfect for picnics where you can open this up for some competition across the picnic table. There is nothing like an old fashioned game of Tic-Tac-Toe to bring on a some competitive spirit!

 

This is the perfect solution to long boring “I don’t have anything to do” blues! This game board easily cinches up into a bag or satchel and stores all the game pieces. Open it up and you are ready to play. Make up rules, make competitions, make point goals to claim a winner! First person to get 25 Tic-Tac-Toes takes the prize!! Whatever way you play, it is sure to provide lots of old school fun without relying on modern technology to fill those hours.

This project is a great stash buster for using up that extra yarn. It also would be a nice project to make in cotton for all-weather, all-terrain play. I would also suggest that you can put velcro on the back of the X’s and O’s as well as the squares to provide more stability. Make the O’s in one team color, the X’s in a rival color and make this a sport related rivalry game! The possibilities are endless! There are so many options with this game board!

Get yours started today and watch how much fun this pattern will provide! Follow along with my step by step tutorial and written pattern for year round enjoyment!

Crochet Tutorial: Catnip Sardine Toy

Crochet Tutorial: Catnip Sardine Toy

I have found that my kitties love a good catnip buzz! These two crazy cats go a bit nuts when I put out some nip or have a toy that has that scent. But I found that paying $5-$7 for a little mouse or stuffed ball is too much to keep these cats happy.

Instead, I decided to make a few of these Crochet Sardine Catnip Toys, and boy, was that a smart idea! Not only is this outrageously economical (you can use scrap cotton yarn and is a nice stash buster) but for mere pennies, these tiny fish can provide hours of feline entertainment! Let me show you how!

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this toy:

Crochet Tutorial: Anatomical Heart Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Anatomical Heart Amigurumi

Nate loves a good horror movie, I love crochet and “Poe”try, and we both love to love. I hope I’ve captured the essence of that in this project!!

I’ve got to “hand” it to you, he’s definitely got my “heart.” I hope you didn’t think that was “tachy.” I’ve tried to “organ”ize my puns so they always make sense. People might think that I’m so crazy about Nate that “aorta” be locked up, but he has the “key to my heart.” Sometimes I wondered if “antibody” was out there who understood me, and there he was. Nate “muscle”d his way into my “life.” In the “pulmonary” start of our relationship, I might have told him “A-fib” or two about how I felt. I didn’t need a “ventricle”oquist to speak for me. I was truly “pumped” about meeting him! “O,” I’m “positive” I won’t ever “bypass” telling Nate how I feel again. I sug”chest” we always express how we feel. I hope I never “skip a beat” when it comes to loving him. I promise to “pace” myself and not take our love in “vein.” ♥ Nadia

My Punny Valentine 2018

The tradition continues with my annual Punny Valentine’s. Each year, I create these silly sentiments using crochet and puns. I try to be as creative and amusing as possible.

You can check out 2017’s Punny Valentine’s here and my 2016’s Punny Valentine’s here! Do you have a fun pun to share? Let me know in the comments section. Share a possible pun that might show up in my 2019 Punny Valentine Series! ~Nadia

Well today is VALENTINE’S DAY!! ❤❤ I am getting *artichoked* up! You probably thought I didn’t *carrot* all that this was coming to the finish line! I knew the end of the pun series would *turnip* sooner or later and I know many of you were *rooting* for these to be over. I *bean* thinking of the best way to end this series and I was *brusselin’* around trying to finish but was running out of steam! I have to say that doing all these puns has me feeling mighty *beet*. I am sure some of you are tired of these as well, but I *yam* what I *yam* and these puns will keep showing up at the beginning of every February! Before next year you will have to *lettuce* know if there are any fun pun projects you want me to demonstrate! How are you spending your Valentine’s Day? Here in Wisconsin it is a little *chili* but Nate and I plan to *Romaine Calm and Carrot On* with our wedding plans. 31 more days until we say “I do”! Oh *Kale*, yeah! 😁 We can’t wait! We are so ready to *broc* and roll down that aisle! Have a great day everyone! Sending all of you LOTS OF LOVE!!

Crochet Tutorial: Fortune Cookie

Crochet Tutorial: Fortune Cookie

If I had a nickel for every pun I had to come up with, I would have plenty of *dough* and be worth a *fortune*! I’ve had pretty *good luck* these past two weeks, I would say. I am feeling like a smart *cookie* coming up with these clever captions! Some may think I am a bit of a *weir-dough* to keep coming up with puns for so long, but it is just the way the *cookie crumbles*! I do it every year and it’s become my thing. Besides, I do it for Nate. Because together, we are a *batch* made in heaven and we are very *fortunate* to have that! Now I better get to writing the pattern and post the blog for the Fortune Cookie Amigurumi before I *delete all my cookies* and have to start all over! I’m a *tough cookie* and could do that, but I wouldn’t want to! (Scroll down for written instructions)

Crochet Tutorial: Pickle Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Pickle Amigurumi

It’s kind of a big *dill* to come up with these little projects and matching puns each day. I am *gherkin* round the clock to keep these going for two weeks. When I find myself in a bit of a *pickle*, and it’s *crunch* time to post, I try to stay as *cool as a cucumber* so I can get this all done in time. I *relish* the feeling of a successful project that I worked *dill-igently* to complete. I love to have the punny caption to match. It’s *Vlasic* Nadia. This is the real *dill*! Even with *dilling* with so many wedding details, I love the puns I have *pickled* and made so far! So what’s the *dill* yo? Do you have a favorite?

Crochet Tutorial: Watermelon Scrubby

Crochet Tutorial: Watermelon Scrubby

Thanks a *melon* everyone, for indulging me with these puns!! These are my love letters for MY Valentine! As Nate and I pre*pear* 🍐 for our wedding next month, all I *peel* is happiness. We do our *berry* best to handle all the wonderful chaos coming our way. But with that, comes a bit of stress. Sometimes when I feel a tad *melon-choly* I think *honey dew* you want to just run away? Nate might say, “Haha, *Orange* you cute? 🍊 Sorry, but we *cantaloupe*.” He really is a *peach*! We do make the perfect *pear*, and he truly is my one in a *melon*. He holds the *kiwi* to my heart! 🥝 During all this planning crochet has been MY escape from all the *fruitiness*! It’s *plum-believable* how much I enjoy a crochet respite and making up these silly puns along the way. This easy peasy *lemon squeezy* 🍋 Melon Scrubby 🍉 has helped keep me from going *bananas*! *Lime* sure a few of you are even *raisin* your eyebrows at how far I can take these play on words and correlate it to my projects! It’s not easy, but I’m *grape-ful* 🍇 to all of you that stuck it out until the end of this *cherry* 🍒 bad stream of fruit puns.

Honestly, there’s *nut* much better than starting the weekend with a bit of humor! *Oak-ay, oak-ay*! It’s *nut* my fault if some of these get a little cringe-y! Well, it is, but, I’m trying hard to keep you *crackin* up! That’s not easy! I know I can’t be the only *squirrel* in the world who loves these silly jokes. But that’s me in a *nutshell*. Silly. Anyway, In *cashew* were wondering, when I started these 14 days of puns, I promised myself I *walnut* fail. I know it *pecan* as something small but now *almond* fire and still *droppin* em!

12 Days of Christmas: Santa Ornament

This Santa Ornament is our tenth pattern in the 12 Days of Christmas Ornament collection! This is such a cute little crocheted gift to adorn your tree or use it instead of a bow on a package for anyone on your gift giving list!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
