Crochet Tutorial: Winter Chic Slippers

Crochet Tutorial: Winter Chic Slippers

I love to be warm and cozy during the cold winter months. I love chunky blankets, over-sized sweaters and soft, comfy slippers. My Winter Chic Slippers are one way to keep toasty while you curl up on the couch with your crochet or a good book on these longer nights. Thick and warm, made with Marly Bird’s Chic Sheep Yarn in beautiful fall colors, these slippers are great to add to your winter wardrobe. Make these in any combination of colors!! With the holidays right around the corner, red, green, and white slippers would be perfect for kids on Christmas morning! In my video tutorial, I explain how to make these in all different sizes! 

 

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make these slippers:

Crochet Tutorial: The Panda Clutch Purse

Crochet Tutorial: The Panda Clutch Purse

I don’t have sisters but a group of best girlfriends who are my “sistys.” These ladies and I have made the panda our honorary group mascot. I’m not sure how that came about, but it has now become our thing. This Panda Clutch Purse design is dedicated to my sistys who are all over the globe from Comoros Africa, to Virginia, to Germany, to Wisconsin. I have been thinking about them and missing them so much lately. I am inspired everyday by these special ladies that are out changing the world. To my Panda, Panda, Panda crew, this one’s for you!

For those of you who are fans of pandas and all things related to pandas, this is a great project!
Did you know that pandas are a symbol of peace? In writing this blog, I looked up a few fun facts and came across this interesting blog if you want to learn more! 

Check out this funny clip of me as a panda in a tree! Thanks to Snapchat! LOL

Crochet Tutorial: Butterfly Scrubby Washcloth

Crochet Tutorial: Butterfly Scrubby Washcloth

Ooooh I just tried out the new Scrubby Cotton Yarn by Red Heart Yarns and made these fun Butterfly Scrubby Washcloths. This yarn provides a unique texture that makes it perfect for household and bath! What a fun and easy gift this would make all-year-round for anyone on your gift giving list! Make a set Scrubby Butterflies and pair them with nice soaps for a fun homemade gift that comes right from the hands and heart!

The texture appears to be abrasive, but it has a soft feel. The fibers provide a bit of exfoliating characteristics but it becomes softer when wet! You will enjoy this yarn for your household needs. You may find this yarn poses a couple challenges in the video tutorial, and it was a bit of an issue showcasing the stitches. Hopefully you can follow along and make these great washcloths today!

Sew two of these washcloths together and keep an opening at the bottom to create a unique wash mitt. So many creative ideas are provided by one great product! If you are going for the ultimate crafting project, not only can you make these washcloths, but you can try making your very own soap or soap products to go with this homemade gift theme!



Not a fan of scrubby yarn? Try this pattern using 100% cotton for fun washcloths without the texture! No matter what type of yarn you choose, these cloths are sure to be a big hit!

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

Crochet Tutorial: Spring Sun Mandala Vest

Crochet Tutorial: Spring Sun Mandala Vest

You asked. I answered. I hear you! My Spring Sun Mandala Vest is complete! Yes, this makes me as happy as it will you! This was made with Red Heart Yarns Super Saver Ombre in the color Cocoa. Can I say I am completely in love with this yarn without making my fiancé jealous? Let’s hope, because I am!

I made this to fit me. I am 5′ 2″ and I generally wear a size Small/Medium. I have given instructions in the Notes Section and in the video tutorial to alter this pattern to make it larger.


Shop Red Heart, America's Favorite Yarn

Something you may not know about my work process, is that I design my pieces off camera first, perfect the pattern, fix all the quirks, and get all my mistakes ironed out before filming my final piece in my tutorials. I first designed my Spring Sun Mandala Vest pattern using Caron Cakes in the color Macaron. This was my original prototype for testing the pattern. I filmed the video in the Red Heart Yarns Super Saver Ombre that I posted above, but if you are interested in seeing how the Cakes work for this piece, this should give you a pretty good idea! No matter what yarn is used, this piece is sure to be a big hit!

Crochet Tutorial: Candy Corn Leg Warmers

Crochet Tutorial: Candy Corn Leg Warmers

Who else is ready for hoodies, bonfires, crisp cool air, hot cocoa, football, and beautiful fall colors? This time of the year brings to mind all things cozy, and that is the premise for my candy corn leg warmers!

These colors always bring to mind the harvest season, Halloween, and cooler days. Today’s tutorial shows how to create these great pair of leg warmers in striped yellow, orange, and white.

Candy Corn Leg Warmers

 

My original pattern developed out of a discovery I made at a thrift shop. While hunting through a basket of vintage jewelry, I stumbled across a pair of wooden maple leaf earrings. I immediately thought these would make great buttons, but what to pair them with?! After careful consideration, I decided to remove the backings and drill some button holes and transform these into an embellishment for these leg warmers!

These are SUPER easy to learn and you can adapt these to any size and any color you’d like! They do not have to be Halloween themed. You can make them one plain color, you can make them team sport colors, you can get as creative as you desire! The video shows how to change color to create this striped effect, but if you wish to continue in a solid tone, just follow the directions without the color changes.
