12 Days of Christmas: Bow & Bauble Door Hanging – Photo Tutorial

12 Days of Christmas: Bow & Bauble Door Hanging – Photo Tutorial

The Bow and Bauble Door Hanging is the best way to greet your guests on this 11th Day of Christmas! I created a crochet bow, then I paired the bow with some simple yet colorful ornaments and some shimmering ribbon. I love the final result!!

 

Here is a list of supplies I used:

Chic Sheep Yarn in Linen

Crochet Hook Size H-5.00mm

Thick Silver Ribbon

Thin Silver Ribbon

Ornament Baubles

Fabric Glue

Yarn Needle

 

I first made this piece. Pattern below image.

 

First I chained 120, Then I worked a DC in the very first chain to create a ring and I just worked in continuous rounds putting a DC in each chain around, and then continuing to put a DC in each stitch around without slip stitching to the beginning or anything. I worked in a swirl! Then after Round 12, I fastened off with a long tail.

 

 

I used that long tail and cinched the center of the bow down like this.

 

 

Then I took the ribbon and fabric glue and attached it in the center of the bow.

 

 

After that, I tied on the baubles and my bow was complete!!!

 

 

I did this project in an afternoon. It was sooooo easy!!

12 Days of Christmas: Holiday Centerpiece

12 Days of Christmas: Holiday Centerpiece

On the 9th day of Christmas, we bring the perfect crochet project that takes only MINUTES to make, but it packs a dramatic decorative punch! Add some holiday cheer to any centerpiece by adding these Curly-Q Spokes in any color! I demonstrate this simple step by step process and take a few simple items to make this cheerful display. Let’s get started!

 

 

I gathered my supplies. I purchased everything from JoAnn’s Craft stores but you can find these items at any craft store or Walmart.

Red Heart Yarns Super Saver in any colors

A glass Bowl Vase

Mini Ornament Bobbles

Pipe Cleaners

Scissors

Size H-5.00mm Crochet Hook

Decorative pieces from the wreath section at the craft store

 

For the curly crochet spokes, I took my crochet hook and yarn

With the yarn, I chained 2, and then put 5 SC in the 2nd ch from hook. I continued to work in continuous rounds putting one SC in each st around until the piece was long enough to fit the pipe cleaner inside of it.

 

Once I got to the top, I fastened off. Then I curled the top half of the pipe cleaner that I just crocheted around to make it twisted.

 

I put the ornaments inside of the fishbowl vase, then I added the decorative pieces and the curly pieces I crocheted. Voila! It’s a beautiful centerpiece!!

12 Days of Christmas: Rustic Holiday Decoration – Step by Step Photo Tutorial

12 Days of Christmas: Rustic Holiday Decoration – Step by Step Photo Tutorial

If anyone is looking for a rustic holiday decoration, I have just the thing for you! I did these easy jute covered balloon balls and they turned out so awesome. Below you can see my step by step process from start to finish. This idea has me thinking in all kinds of creative directions using string art to decorate for the holidays. I may have to make more! In the meantime check out my picture tutorial and follow along today.

 

First I gathered all the supplies I needed. (See photo above)
Water Balloons, Scissors, Paint brush, Mod Podge, and Jute.
I also used rubber gloves and a tupperware container that are not pictured.

 

I blew up the balloons to be mini balls, and then I added the Mod Podge to the tupperware container.

 

I proceeded to dunk the jute into the mod podge and then wrap it around the balloon using my rubber gloves for protection.

 

 

I wrapped about 20 times.

 

 

Then I used the paint brush to reinforce the mod podge to the jute.

 

I let it dry for 24 hours.

 

 

Once it was all dry, I popped the balloon and removed it from the middle of the ball.

 

 

 

The jute stayed in place!! Woohoo!! I then used a tweezer to get any extra mod podge out of the gaps and make the ball look cleaner.

 

 

 

I added an ornament hook to the ball and hung it on my tree!

12 Days of Christmas: Winding Ribbon Tree Ornament – Photo Tutorial

12 Days of Christmas: Winding Ribbon Tree Ornament – Photo Tutorial

The Winding Ribbon Tree Ornament is decorated with beads to give nice detail to our 3rd in our 12 days of Christmas series! Today I have a very simple, but VERY lovely ornament tutorial.

 

 

This is a picture tutorial and pattern showing step by step the creating and assembly process.

 

 

Supplies you will need:

Caron Simply Soft Yarn

Beads

Thread

Sewing needles

Crochet hook (any size, but I used G-4.25mm)

Scissors

By simply making a crochet ribbon by doing a Foundation Half Double Crochet and curling it back and forth, separating each section by beads, you end up with this tiny tree. I did a Foundation Half Double Crochet of 120 stitches.

Follow along with this video to learn how to do the Foundation Half Double Crochet:

 

Perfect for hanging on the branches of your Christmas tree or adorning the top of your holiday gifts, this easy handmade detail will be sure to wow everyone this season!

 

 

This entire process from start to finish will take you less than 30 minutes, but looks like you spent a lot more time than that making this ornament.

Make these in a variety of colors to give your tree a bright and festive look!

12 Days of Christmas: Corner to Corner (C2C) Holiday Hot Pad – FREE Crochet Video Tutorial

12 Days of Christmas: Corner to Corner (C2C) Holiday Hot Pad – FREE Crochet Video Tutorial

Next up in the 12 Days of Christmas project, I have this Corner to Corner Holiday Hotpad. This is the time of year when we gather with friends and family in our homes or in our community. We share our table and time. A beautiful way to dress up the table is to make these lovely potholders to protect the tabletop from the hot food. Disclaimer The Corner to Corner stitch has some small openings in the stitch. This is ONLY for protecting your table and NOT for using to grab hot dishes from the oven. These are made from cotton and would also work as washcloths. Any way you wish to use these, they make a wonderful gift.

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

Introducing my Family Fair Isle Hat. This is a fun pattern for everyone! OOOH Yeah! This is the perfect hat for the season, for the family, for ANYONE on your gift giving list-and don’t forget to make one for yourself! I have provided you the pattern to make one in several sizes-baby, youth, teen/adult, XL adult, and I took the guess-work out of this pattern for you. In our family photos, I have done a variation on the color scheme in each hat using the beautiful colors provided by Marly Bird’s Chic Sheep yarn. Find the selection of colors here! You can find the perfect combination for everyone.

One of the loveliest things about this pattern is the versatility. Not only can you make it in any size, you can use a yarn pom, no pom,or a furry pom found here. You can keep the earflaps or make it a simple beanie or ski hat and leave them off. You can put braids or tassels on the earflaps – MAKE IT YOUR OWN! But, if you do, be sure to share those photos on my Facebook page, tag me on Instagram, or Snapchat me your pics! I can’t wait to see what you do.

If you are giving a handmade gift this hat alone or paired with a matching set of my Fair Isle Knee High Socks would make anyone delighted to find these under the tree. Be sure to check out my knee high socks here and get started on these great patterns today!

Red Heart Chic Sheep Yarn (I used colors: Lipstick, VIP, Polo, Linen)
-G-4.25mm Crochet Hook

Yarn Needle
Scissors

NOTES:
-Use a smaller hook to make these smaller
-Use a bigger hook to make these bigger
-You can do as many rows of this pattern as you want to make it as tall as you want.
-This hat is in a multiple of 4 so make your foundation chain in a multiple of 4 that fits around your head.
-Work your Single Crochet Stitches into the CENTER of the stitch and NOT in the top loops. See the video tutorial to see exactly the location you should insert your hook into the stitches.

Small: Fits Size 3-6 Months
Medium: Fits Child
Large: Fits an adult (female)
X-Large: Fits large adult (male)

 

Special stitches:
Ch(s): chain(s)
YO: Yarn Over
BLO: Back Loop Only
FLO: Front Loop Only
St(s): Stitch(es)
Sl st: slip stitch
SK: Skip
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
DC: Double Crochet
FPHDC: Front Post Half Double Crochet

Pattern:

If you have any confusion or difficulty with reading this pattern, please watch the video tutorial that is linked above in this blog post to have visual instructions.

With Brim Color (I used Polo in my hat)

Small: Chain 56
Medium: Chain 72
Large: Chain 80 (this is the size I demonstrated in the video tutorial)
X-Large: Ch 96
(You can chain any multiple of 4 that fits around your head and make this pattern according to the instructions)

Rnd 1: Sl st to your first chain to form a large ring, Ch 1, HDC in each Ch around, sl st to the first HDC, Ch 1. (56, 72, 80, or 96 sts)

Rnds 2-5: FPHDC on first st, *BPHDC on next st, FPHDC on next st, repeat from * around ending with BPHDC on last st, sl st to first st, Ch 1.

Fasten off brim and change color to Linen

Attach Linen to any stitch around. Ch 1

Rnd 6: SC in each st around working in the top of the stitch, do not join (continue to work in continuous rounds for the rest of this hat

Rnds 7-8: SC into each st around (see video tutorial for visual instruction on working INTO the stitch and not in the top loops of the stitch) This will create the Knit looking stitches.

NOTE: Work OVER THE TOP of your unused yarn when changing colors so frequently during the rounds. This will save you from having to sew in so many loose ends. (See video tutorial on this technique)

Fasten off Linen and change to your main color. I used Lipstick red in my main color of the hat.

Rnd 9: Attach Lipstick Red to any stitch around, Ch 1, SC INTO each st around.

Rnd 10: SC with Main Color in first 3 sts, *Change to Linen after the 3rd stitch and put ONE SC of Linen in the next stitch, Change color right away back to your main color, and make a SC in each of the next 3 sts, repeat from * around ending with a SC of Linen in the last stitch, switch back to your main color right away for the next round. (If this is written confusing, please see the video tutorial for visual instructions).

It is quite difficult to explain in writing, until you know what’s being explained. Moving on.

Rnd 11: With your main color, SC INTO each st around (you will not be changing color at all during this round)

Rnd 12: With your main color, SC in the first st, Change to Linen after that first st, * put ONE SC of Linen in the next st, Change color right away back to your main color, and make a SC in each of the next 3 sts,  Change color to Linen after the 3rd st, repeat from * around, ending with SC of Main color in the last 2 sts, Do not change color for the next round.

Small: Rnds 13-26: Repeat Rounds 9-12

Medium: Rnds 13-34: Repeat Rounds 9-12

Large: Rnds 13-38: Repeat Rounds 9-12

X-Large: Rnds 13-46: Repeat Rounds 9-12

Cut your Linen yarn, you will no longer need it.

The next round after you are finished with the fair isle design:

All sizes: [SC in next 2 sts, SC2TOG] repeat around. (This decreases the top to cinch it closed)

Last round: [SC in next st, SC2TOG] repeat around (decreased more)

Fasten off with long tail for sewing.
Cinch the top closed with the yarn you cut and tie it off to close the top of the hat.
add a pom to the top of the hat.

Hard Work and Baby Giggles

Hard Work and Baby Giggles

I woke up this morning to so many wonderful birthday messages! After I posted a video of Nasir and his sweet baby giggles yesterday on Facebook, I I received so much love and so many wishes!

I decided to share the videos here in my blog for everyone to enjoy. Thank you all so much for your heartfelt messages of love and sweet wishes for a happy birthday. It really meant a lot to me and each one was so well received. Even more, thank you for the sweetness you share with me about Nasir, about your own babies, and about your encouragement to me as a new mom. You have no idea how much it all means to me. I hold each comment and good wish close to my heart.


Whether we were playing or changing his stinky diaper, he was just full of smiles and laughter!


The pattern for the Happy Hues Sampler Baby Blanket is here.

Hard at Work

I worked most of the day on some new projects! Here is a quick sneak peak of a new pattern on my hook! I will be releasing this early next week!

After we spent the day filming some new tutorials, we headed out for some birthday treats.

All day my sweet boy was giggling and being so silly!! He was such a good boy even long after his bedtime! But at the end of the day, he was ready for bed in his big boy crib. (We just transitioned from the bassinet)’

 

Thank you again for making my birthday so special!!
