The patterns are easy to follow if you know how to crochet. If you’re a little rusty like me or a beginner, spend a few minutes on the Lion Brand Yarn site watching their tutorials and you’ll be up to speed. You really only need to know how to do two things–magic circle and single chain stitch.

Easy DIY: Hand-drawn Glasses

We usually give a little personalized gift to my daughter’s favorite teachers from the previous years. This year, we decided on hand-drawn glasses.

Using Pebeo Vitrea markers, my daughter drew some fun designs and plain pint glasses. We then made them into summer drink kits by filling them with straws, rock candy stir sticks and cold brew iced tea bags.

Easy DIY: Fencing Bunnies

After seeing this comic on Hana’s World and then finding a pattern for the Giving Bunny, I decided to combine them and make fencing giving bunnies since my kids have started fencing.

The weapons are made from Sculpey. The masks are from window mesh I bought at the hardware store for another project. I just cut ovals out of felt and mesh and sandwiched the mesh between the felt.
