Fashion has always been a bit (a lot) silly, in my opinion, but hey – if there’s a market to exploit, might as well try dipping your toes into it, right?

I recently found this website called Hooked On Crochet, located at https://www.allfreecrochet.com/ , and was browsing rather idly for a couple quick projects to make. They have hundreds of entirely free crochet patterns, and link back to the original creator of them. It’s really a great website if you’re looking to expand your library – once you sign up, you can “save” the patterns you find most interesting to come back to later. They’re organised by type – accessories, blankets, stuffed animals/amigurumi, shirts, you name it – and it’s a really handy resource. I’ve found a bunch of neat patterns, so I’d definitely suggest browsing around if you’re into crocheting at all.

Anyway, back to my original point: Fashion. I’m terrible at it. Absolutely a fashion disaster, with zero interest in correcting this at all. But I did find a nice pattern that worked up quickly on HoC’s website, so I figured that I may as well try my hand at doing something to sell, at least, right?

This baby took less than one skein of yarn (about half!) and worked up fairly quick. It’s really warm and snuggly, and – if you’re shy, like me – great for burrowing into and hiding your face. Since it’s getting towards Fall and Winter, I figure I should start making more of them to sell! (Living in Florida, I don’t have much of a use for them otherwise). I’m also looking into doing it in a different colour, so, you know.

You can find this pattern HERE, if you skip the ad.

I’m considering selling the finished cowl for $10 plus shipping on Etsy, let me know if anyone’s interested.

Plastic bag organiser

Had some old yarn (the purple) hanging around in the form of a terrible unfinished scarf, so what better way to re-purpose it! The plastic bag organiser does exactly what it says on the tin – you hang it up somewhere, stuff plastic shopping bags into the top of it, and pull them out through the bottom, which has an elastic band in it to make sure the bags don’t just go falling out everywhere.

It’s an easy and fairly quick project, depending on what yarn you use, and this is my own pattern for it. I’m considering offering the pattern for people if they’re interested in it.

muppet complete!

At long last, muppet guy’s commission is completed and I can relax a little.

Narwhals

One of my favourite projects, these narwhals are about one foot long (horn included) and don’t take too much time to make. I recently sold my last one, but I’m considering making more when I get some free time.

Hand-made plushies, $15 + shipping. Let me know if you’re interested.

Muppet WIP

There’s this one guy who keeps commissioning me to make muppet plushies for his son. I’m not a fan of making them, but he pays pretty well, so it’s a little difficult for me to turn him down.

So here’s a WIP of the newest one.

Haven’t been feeling well

So there hasn’t been much activity over here, I guess. I’m in the middle of crocheting something, so I guess that’s a cool surprise-in-wait.

I’ll be sure to update with more pictures and progress soon, once I get over generally feeling-like-crap.

Pastel rabbit

 

A soft plush toy! He stands at 6 in (15 cm) tall and is the same length long. Made of soft plush fur, with an optional bow around his neck! Stuffed with PolyFill, and with mildly weighted ears. Hand-made.

Warning!: his left eye is a little loose. I would not recommend him as a gift to young children or pets, as there is the risk of a choking hazard.

 

You can find him HERE for $10 USD + shipping

Cozies number two

Update: I’ve made another one of these.

I will continue to make them.

They’re really relaxing mini-projects and also great for stress relief.

01: Coffee cozy

Starting off the new blog with something simple: I crocheted this out of anxiety while waiting for an interview, and you can find the quick and easy pattern HERE! (must have ravelry account, joining is free)

Please excuse the terrible picture, my phone doesn’t like vibrant colours against cooler ones.

Anyway, I’m probably going to make a ton of these, then throw them up on my Etsy, which can be found here.
