Crochet Tutorial: Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf

Crochet Tutorial: Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf

When you think of boho-style fashion, what comes to mind? Most people might immediately think of bare feet with bell bottom jeans and funky headbands. Although one can incorporate those two fashion pieces tastefully into a modern boho outfit, things have come a long way in modern times! Yes, we draw inspiration from the early era of the flower child and beatnik, as those fashion concepts from the 1960s have inspired the modern spin on today’s boho-fashion trends, today we have added a new flair to this look.

Crochet has long been a part of the boho scene. My Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf takes this old idea and brings it to new life! Arrows and Fringe are all the rage in this latest fashion arena and I have them both in this one fabulous piece! You can make this scarf very easily, just in time for the cold days ahead. It will stop people in their tracks with the bold and beautiful look that this scarf flaunts!

I used the delicious Chic Sheep Yarn by The Marly Bird! As part of her Designer Blog Tour, I jumped at the chance to use more of this amazing Merino wool fiber. I know what you are thinking. “Red Heart Yarns cannot simply have a desirable wool yarn that is soft and worthy of high end pieces”. STOP.RIGHT.THERE. Back ‘er up! Erase those thoughts immediately! Haha! I am here to tell you that you cannot go wrong with this luxurious fiber! It is drool worthy! Don’t take my word for it?? Order a skein on redheart.com or go over to your nearest Hobby Lobby stores and go feel for yourself! You won’t believe the magic at your fingertips! Come on, do it! We all know you like to squeeze that yarn! (Confession: My name is Nadia and I am a yarn squeezer. There, I admit it! That wasn’t so hard.)

 

Chic Sheep Yarn has fast become a favorite go-to for some of my nicer fashion pieces for myself and for the home! I used this in my Colorful Visions Afghan and trust me, there is not another piece that has equaled the amount of swooning that my friends and family have done as they have on this afghan! It is one of those blankets so comfy, you want to curl underneath and momentarily forget the world…in fact I might have done that a time or two…or three. I also made the Winter Chic Slippers with this yarn, and let me tell you, those are some of the most comfortable slippers I have ever worn!

I had the joy of meeting Marly Bird at Stitches Midwest, and it truly was a highlight of that weekend. Finally meeting her and getting to know her has been such a thrill. I can tell you that she puts so much love and enthusiasm into everything she does that her brand is no exception. Her color choices are eye-popping, the softness is fantastic, and her product is comparable to other brands that can run three times the price!

So now that you are convinced, go grab your Chic Sheep Yarn today and join me on making the Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf!

Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Style Baby Bonnet

Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Style Baby Bonnet

I love to create matching layette sets when designing items for babies. I love the idea of a cute dress with matching accessories. Today, I have the second installment for the Happy Hearts Baby Dress. I designed a Vintage Style Baby Bonnet.

This sweet baby hat has similar ruffle detail as seen on the cap sleeves of the Happy Hearts Baby Dress. Using similar colors with this matching detail, this tiny bonnet is the perfect pairing for this sweet outfit.

With more pieces to come, this is the perfect set to start now and add to as the pieces become available! This will make a wonderful gift!

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this simple bonnet pattern:

I have added a touch of accent color in the pattern as well as complimenting it with a lovely picot border to give it some additional design features. This treasured piece will be a huge hit! The Bunches of Hugs  yarn by Red Heart Yarns is the perfect fiber to make it feel luxurious and soft as a cloud. Perfect for cuddling your little one!

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

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.

Crochet Tutorial: Open Heart Cup Cozy

Oh, it’s after 8am! Sorry I just had a little *hic-cup* this morning, but here’s today’s pun! Better *latte* than never! So we are halfway through our Valentine’s Day puns! *Cool Beans* you guys! Words can’t *espresso* how much it *beans* to me to share this *creativi-tea* with all of you! I *mug* continue to be motivated and finish out this stretch! Today’s project is an exercise in *simplici-tea*–here’s my Open Heart Cup Cozy. I had a different idea when I started (I frogged it) but I always say “if at first you don’t succeed, *chai, chai* again.” This project is great way to tell teachers, colleagues, and friends how *tea-riffic* they are! Add some special *blends* and give the gift of *tranquili-tea* to someone you care about! Not sure if you want to try this? I say go ahead and *brew* it! The Open Heart Cup Cozy will be on the blog later today. Now I think I might go crochet and listen to some Fleetwood *Mac-chiato*. Ok, too far…😂😂 *Cough-ee* #sorrynotsorry Doing this for y’all is like living la vida *mocha*. Seriously, I’m done now.

Crochet Tutorial: Ghost Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Ghost Amigurumi

How is everyone on this *boo-tiful* day? For some time, before I release these Punny Valentine projects, I spend a *spooky* amount of time *haunting* around for ideas. A lot of the ideas get the *boo-t*. That whole “what *ghost* up must come down” happens with a lot with my ideas. I get excited for some, and then some fall flat! Many take *float* in my mind and are a *scream*! You can *scare* up inspiration from anywhere and make it a pun. Some things won’t have a *ghost* of a chance, but it *ghost* to show you that many things can!

Crochet Tutorial: Poppy Flower

When I *rose* up this morning, I thought to myself, oopsie *daisy* I am not prepared for my post today! I was like, “What in *carnation* do I write about in today’s puns?” I would be *pollen* your leg if I told you that I was prepared for today’s punny caption about flowers! I was hoping to have someone *plant* an idea for me so this would not be so difficult. But boy, was this tough! *Bunches* of times I felt like I could not *cultivate* a good idea. But then a *seed* in my mind started to *grow and grow*. Before you know it, I began *rootin’* for myself to finish this great idea! And here it is! I am hoping *thistle* bring cheer to all my *buds*! Happy Sunday!

Crochet Tutorial: Warm and Fuzzy Headband

Crochet Tutorial: Warm and Fuzzy Headband

The Warm and Fuzzy Headband is just what I needed following a fresh Wisconsin snowfall!! So I made one up and had to share this fantastic pattern with you!! This couture headband is just what you need to top off your snow day wardrobe! I added a fuzzy pom to complete this design which is patterned after snowflakes and a big fluffy snowball!!

The Pom is snapped on using heavy duty snaps so you can interchange poms of different colors to match your outfit! See how this piece is made in my step by step video tutorial and pattern below!

I found a few other accessories from fantastic designers to help complete a winter ensemble to create a wonderful matching set!!

Punny Valentine’s: “Love” a Good Pun

Punny Valentine’s: “Love” a Good Pun

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. I do, however, have to match a pun to something I can create using my crochet magic. It is NOT easy, let me tell you, this blog showcases my collection from 2017. You can check out 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 2018 Punny Valentine Series! ~Nadia

Below is a list of some Punny Valentine’s. Click on the link next to their date or click the photo to be taken to its video tutorial and written pattern! Enjoy!!

February 1st: Two Peas in a Pod
My first of 14 Valentine’s Day puns begins with these Two Peas In A Pod. Every day I’m “brussel-in” to make these puns! It makes me very “hap-pea!” So, if you “carrot” all, “peas” give these puns a chance. I’m pretty sure that it will “lettuce” have a few good laughs together! This is going to be so much “pun!”

February 2nd: Volcano Bag
Day 2 of our Valentine’s Day puns and things are really “heating” up. I don’t mean to “int-erupt” your day, but you should know how much I “lava” this silliness, so much so, that I could just “burst!”

February 3rd: Leaf Appliqué
I know you are “falling” for some of these “unbe-leaf-ably” silly puns. It helps to create good “chemis-tree” between us when we can “photo-sympathize” with how lame they can become. I know it’s “over-ELM-ing,” but we can still laugh together. I hope it’s “OAK-kay” that I continue to post until I get “stumped.” Even then I won’t “leaf” you “hanging” as I “branch” out and try to be more punny!

February 4th: Mouse and Cheese Amigurumi
This may be my “cheesiest” pun yet. It’s “nacho” fault if these puns get so “stinky” you roll your eyes when I say life is “cheddar” when we’re together. When I am with you, I don’t feel “aged” or “bleu.” I do have to stay “sharp” to keep up these punny lines. Otherwise, it could look “swiss-picious” if I am laughing at these “prov-ALONE.” So, like I said, we are really “gouda” together so please, will you “brie” mine? It would be “mice” if your answer was “YES, cheese!”

 

February 5th: Mushroom Amigurumi
You may think that making up puns is no “truffle” at all. But, Holy “Shiitake,” it’s not easy!! I “moss” say that I have really taken a “lichen” to this. At least I have “morel” support from everyone. You give me “mush-room” to be creative, so I can “button” down and get these done! Once I get a good pun figured out, I feel like the “porto-bell-o” of the ball! I appreciate your encouragement because that’s what friends are “spore.”

February 6th: Avocado Amigurumi
“Bravo-cado” on sharing these puns everyone! I have laughed a lot and said, “You’ve “guac” to be kidding me,” several times! Some responses are “hard-core” and “avo-control!” There were a few “guac-ward” moments. I know, I tend be go too far that I can end up in the “pits” with these puns. It seems so wrong but feels so “ripe,” so keep it up, and “guac” my world with your creativity!

February 7th: Corn Amigurumi
I hope you are enjoying these “corny” puns! I’m “stalking” the Internet with “corn-viction” to help “plant” my mind with ideas this Valentine’s Day. Each pun is “butter” than the last. I come “ear” to find creativity. I search online for a “kernel” of truth and a pun that’s “a-peel-ing.” When I find it, I say “shucks” this is “sweet!” I’ve had to “weed” through a lot of “crop” to come up with all these “a-maize-ing” puns, but you’re worth it! After you finish “plowing” through the amount of “ridicul-husk”puns in this caption, I hope the rest of your day is filled with” uni-corns” and rainbows!

February 8th: Tomato Amigurumi
Trying to think of new and clever puns each day is making me feel a bit “plum” crazy. I tend to think “what’s “to-mato” with you, Nadia? You need to “ketchup” and figure these all out!” I’m trying to keep these upbeat and “juice” the cutest play on words, but sometimes it can become a bit “dicey.” I want to say thank you “cherry” much for “picking” up on my sense of humor and playing along with my “fruit-iness!”

February 9th: Bumble Bee Amigurumi
There has “bee-n” a lot of “buzz” going around about these puns. “Honey,” I’m trying to always “beehive” to “bee” sure my jokes don’t “sting.” I try to “bee” positive and “comb” through many ideas before they “stick.” Not all of my puns are “flower-y” or silly. I have “pollen” for a few lame ones. I agree that a couple were a bit “un-bee-lievable.” I always appreciate your feedback and “raw honey-sty.” Your encouragement makes me feel like a “Queen.” I’m trying to stay “hummm-ble, ” so I will stop “drone-ing” on and on, but before I go, I should say, I think you all are the “bees knees!” *insert cringy eyerolls here* HAHA!

February 10th: String of Hearts Cup Cozy
Rise and shine, it’s a “brew-tiful” day! Words can’t “espresso” how much you “bean” to me. You always stay “grounded” and work at “mocha” me happy. Even when I have a “latte” on my mind, you are there to give me your sweet “sugar.” Every day, you’re ready to face the daily “grind.” Even if each day feels like a “deja brew,” you never get “heated” and say “I don’t give a “frapp,”” or “What’s “Sumatra” with my life?” Instead, you’re always “perky” and “tea-riffic!” So, better “latte” than never, I want you to know that you’re more than an Average “Joe.” You’re just my “cup of tea.”

February 11th: Fish Amigurumi
We are “bass-ically” coming to the end of our Valentine’s puns. I “fish” we had more time because I’m having so much “fin!” I have a “boat-load” of material. I’m not being “koi” about it. With only a few days left, I’m not about to “swimmer” down. Instead, I’m over here, “kraken” myself up! I “sardine-ly” try to keep everyone laughing. You know I’m not doing this just for the “halibut.” These puns are an annual event. You may wonder, “”Water” you doing these for, Nadia?” My answer is, “These puns are a big “tank” you for being in my life!” I have always said, “You are my “ray” of sunshine.” You make me want to “Carp-e” Diem, and not “flounder” around anymore. There’s nothing “fishy” about this. My “sole” is truly in making up these puns!

February 12th: Scientist Amigurumi
I “periodically” get inspiration from everyday things for these crochet love notes. I get a “sine” that an idea might work, and then I start to “planet.” Some of these are “sodium” funny, I have slapped my “neon” a couple of occasions! The “gravity” to make these puns epic is “multiplied” by the fact that I’m running out of “time.” I’m trying to finish them at the “speed of light.” I have plenty of “energy” to keep these going for a couple more days! No “matter” what, through everything, you know my love for this is “constant,” but right now, I’m going to take a break and have a piece of “Pi.”

February 13th: Gnome Amigurumi
I “gnome” that this series is almost done. I hope these have brought some “magic” to your life. I’ve been “toad” that I make up some pretty good ones! I have been “trolling” through some keywords to pun this caption to make sure it’s “elfin'” hilarious. Some have been so funny, I hope no one wet their “plants” reading these! I’m being “fairy” careful to make sure they’re full of fun and “fantasy.” I have “pixie-d” some great projects to make some special Valentine’s ideas to help your love “grow.” This cute Gnome would be perfect for a “garden party” accent!

February 14th: Lemons to Lemonade Pillow
I have always had a “zest” for life, and “lime” so grateful to be able to do what I love. For the past 2 weeks, my creative “juices” have been going in high gear to bring you this series of puns leading up to Valentine’s Day. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have!! At times, I may have blurred the “limes” between humorous and pushing too far. I’m sure some were a bit “sour” and others made you “peel” with laughter. Today’s pun is no exception. This pillow is “juice” the cutest way to end our series and allows me to “ex-press” how much all this means to me. I do this for YOU! I plan to “wedge” this under me to provide something to “curdle” up with once my procedure and biopsies are over. I’m so lucky to have my “main squeeze” with me during these tests! My life is made up of many “making lemonade” moments. Any way you “slice” it, was a perfect way to bring this series to a close. So, time to “pucker up” and get this procedure done! I will post the blog for this pillow as soon as I’m a bit more “fresh.” Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! Sending you all my love!!

Letterboard Inspiration

Letterboard Inspiration

Remember when I made my wish list blog? I had listed some nice additions that I was hoping to put in my craft room in my new home once my room was finished. Well, one of those items happened to find its way under our Christmas tree this year. My brother, Nabeel, bought me my very first (and much wanted) letterboard! Obviously, I squealed with childish delight because this truly was something I was hoping to get!

My creative energy is on high alert to find inspirational quotes to post each week to keep me motivated and share with all of you! I decided to try to post a photo twice a week; something fun written on my brand new board.

I am off to a great start and I hope to continue with this mini project throughout the year. This blog is where I plan to keep track of these fun shots and hopefully you will come back for inspiration from time to time to see the new ones added!

Have a fun crochet, crafty, creative quote to share? Feel free to post it in the comments!

Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

I am making the best out of these frigid temps this week as I finish yet another weather inspired pattern. With temperature well below zero and brutal wind chills, it is no wonder that my mind is always thinking of ways to stay as snug and cozy as I possibly can! Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens are my latest creation to come off my hook!

These cozy mitts are fantastic and definitely doing their job keeping my digits nice and toasty! Frigid air, don’t care, I got me a pair! Ok, that was silly, but these mittens are not! Using Red Heart Evermore Chunky Yarn, this pair works up fast and easy! I have noted how to make these a bit bigger if you want more room! Handmade mittens are inspired by days gone by when most of the winter worn items were homespun yet these will always stand the test of time. My Wonderfully Warm Mittens are functional and very stylish today and for generations to come! Make yourself a pair! These also make a great gift!
