Now that I’ve figure out how to crochet Pokeballs, I decided to expand into other round things. I think these Bob-ombs will be perfect as part of a Halloween costume. You can find step-by-step instructions on WolfDreamer.
I’ve mentioned InGreetings.com before as a great source for plain totes. I decided to use the techniques I learned from Sublime Stitching to embroider a zippered tote with all different kinds of sweets.
I drew it by hand on regular paper and then transferred it using my Crayola Light Board. The board fit nicely in the tote and the image showed through clearly. Email me at email@example.com if you’d like a PDF of my design.
Just in time for the 40th Anniversary of Hello Kitty, Hello Kitty Crochet: Supercute Amigurumi Patterns for Sanrio Friends is an adorable book full of amigurumi patterns for your favorite Sanrio characters.
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.
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.
