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!

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!

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.

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.

Christmas is rapidly approaching, crochet can/bottle covers at the ready!

I can’t believe how quickly this year seems to be going, doesn’t seem to minutes ago I was getting ready for Easter and now the focus is on Christmas.

After making my Halloween bottle/can covers I made a note to make some for Christmas too and I have finally got round to getting some made. I still have a few more ideas for these so won’t be long until a few more pop up!

Continuing the pineapple theme with a crochet pineapple cushion

Following on from my tumbling blocks pineapple blanket I decided to continue with the pineapple theme and make a tumbling blocks pattern pineapple cushion.

I’ve really liked using the tumbling blocks pattern and think there may be a few more makes using them in the future!

Time for some crochet pineapples!

Following on from my fabric tumbling blocks Bambi quilt I decided I wanted to try something similar with crochet and combined this with an idea I had for doing a blanket with pineapples on. It took me a little while to get the pattern layout as I wanted but after many failed drawings I finally cracked it and I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. It was great fun to make and every time I started working on it the ‘Pina Colada’ song would come to mind – random I know, but it made me smile!The pattern is available over on my Etsy site: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/621557268
