Corner to Corner Dachshund Blanket Pattern

I recently took part in a Corner to Corner crochet along by Zeens and Roger (zeensandroger.wordpress.com) I really enjoy making corner to corner crochet as its great seeing the pattern gradually evolve so was really looking forward to  giving it a go.  I decided to do a Dachshund themed blanket.  It took quite a few attempts to draw a pattern up I was happy with and even longer to decide on the colours to use but eventually I got there!

The pattern is available over on my Etsy shop:

Crochet Elf drawstring bag

After making my Crochet Elf Storage baskets I had an idea to make an Elf drawstring bag for some of my other Christmas presents to go into, I always seem to use paper gift bags at Christmas when gifting and decided to go for something a bit different this year. I also seem to have acquired a mass of green and red wool (I’m sure wool sneaks in overnight!) so these makes will be perfect for using some of it up!

Crochet elf storage baskets

Add a bit of a Christmas theme to your storage with these Elf storage baskets.

These Elf baskets came from an idea I had for gifting this year as I thought they would be perfect for putting a gift inside such as sweets or any other loose items – rather than a basket hamper you can have an Elf hamper!

Minecraft Mooshroom corner to corner crochet cow storage case pattern

After Steve I decided to make a Mooshroom cow storage case as well – they make up so quickly and are so handy its hard to stop making more!

This one is a bit bigger than the Steve at 23x13cm.

Once you have completed the pattern fold the case in half with wrong sides together and slip stitch down either side to secure.

Take the zip and sew onto the top edge of the case.

Next take a piece of fabric 23x27cm and fold in half with wrong sides together and sew down either side to secure.  Fold the top edge over by 1cm and press.  Place the lining inside the case and slip stitch around to secure.

Tumbling blocks crochet heart cushion – take 2!

After completing my tumbling blocks cushion I decided I wanted to do another without a background and using a different textured stitch, and from that a new tumbling blocks cushion was born.

Minecraft Steve corner to corner storage case

I’ve had a few Minecraft storage cases on my list since my Creeper and Ghast cases (a few is an understatement to be honest!).  The first is a Steve, this is slightly smaller than the Creeper and Ghast as the pattern worked out better in a smaller size and I wanted a smaller size for putting some smaller things into to!.

It measures 15cm x 12cm when completed.

Once you have completed the corner to corner crochet finish off all loose ends fold in half with wrong sides together and slip stitch down the sides to secure.

Take your zip and sew into the top edge opening of the case, placing the sides of the zip  into the case.

Tumbling blocks crochet heart cushion

Since making my tumbling blocks pineapple blanket and cushion I have had a few more tumbling projects in the works and the first out is this heart cushion.  I added some textures to the heart blocks with some bobbles to make them really stand out from the background and give a textured feel and opted to use two different pinks one on the front heart and one on the back, though you could do them both the same if you preferred.
