Some of my first patterns were appliqués and small crochet items. I decided to post these for free on my blog for anyone that is looking for a small quick crochet project.
These little applique hearts are so super cute, I love using them to adorn knit/crochet projects as well as use them to embellish cards and other paper crafts.
Quite a few years ago while selling at my favorite Indie Craft Fair, Mod Shop, I was asked by so many customers if I made ear warmers, there was even one customer that came back by to show me one she found from another vendor so that I knew what they were, she said I should start making them because they are becoming so popular. And she sure was right, ear warmers are still super popular these days and it turns out they are a breeze to make.
I started making just a single design using my favorite stitch, the seed stitch, (I can’t help it, I love this stitch!) It is such a simple and easy stitch that results in a beautiful texture with the yarn.

This is a quick little pattern I came up with to dress up my succulents planted in 4 oz mason jars.
I have a few versions of these Mason Jar Cozy’s that I have posted in my Ravelry Shop, you can find an alternative pattern made with Lion’s Brand Cotton Ease yarn here: Free Mason Jar Cozy on Ravelry The free pattern on Ravelry is pretty much the same as this one, it just uses a different type of yarn, so the sizing is a bit off.
Below is a pattern I created using Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream yarn in Overcast.
Here is another free pattern for you. This is my Knit Bow Tie Pattern, designed with a toddler in mind. This bow tie will fit most children, as it is a one size fits most type of pattern.

I really love Pom-Poms! they are so cute and are great additions to almost any craft. I have recently been making pom-poms for my knit beanies.
I use the Clover Pom Pom Maker, it is the fastest easiest way to make a pom-pom.
I have used many other DIY methods, my hands (great for big loose pom-poms), a fork (which is great for small pom-poms), card board, which I will never ever, ever use again, but is a way to make a pom-pom.
I am getting ready for fall with a number of new scarf and cowl patterns.
Today I worked on a quick and easy cowl pattern that takes 1 skein of yarn, and can easily be modified into a scarf or infinity scarf.
This is a garter knit cowl, which is the first stitch I learned when I started knitting.
Hello Fellow Knitters!
My friends and I went on an all girls camping trip this year and I was in charge of bringing beverages, I made some Amazing White Wine Sangria and packed it in Mason Jars, and also brought coffee for in the morning. One thing I didn’t bring was enough mugs for all of the girls to enjoy their coffee, as a result, we used the empty Mason Jars that I packed the Sangria in, this was a great idea, except the mugs were a bit hot to touch so we used some towels to keep our hands warm.
After this experience I thought it would be a good idea to make a cozy for my mason jar cups so I could enjoy my hot tea or coffee without burning my hand.
