bunny from a crochet square

Hello!  We are on Spring Break and our days have gotten a little bit lazy.  Takes me a while in the morning to finish my coffee and get onto chores and crafting.  It's nice to have some time to relax and not rush off anywhere.  But I still have the crafting bug and want to make a ton of stuff.  When I get that kind of feeling, I usually don't know where to start and end up feeling lost.  I usually try to clean my craft area first and start with something small and keep going.

I saw this cute tutorial about making a bunny from just a crochet or knit square.  There are a few tutorials out in blogland and they are all similar to this one HERE.  I don't know how to knit so I looked for a crochet version and found this video HERE.  So I crocheted a square using a smaller than usual hook and the square turned out about 6 inches or so.

I used this soft pretty pink yarn.  I crocheted tightly (the smaller hook helps) cause I didn't want gaps in between the stitches but that also makes it kind of more rigid and harder to tighten where you need to.

But in the end the bunny turned out cute.  I did end up stitching the ears a bit closer so there wasn't a gap where the filling could fall out.  The other thing I changed a bit was pulling some yarn from up the bottom to the top by the ears to flatten its bottom out so it can sit nicely.  Cause other wise it just rolls around on its stomach.

Here is a side view.  I made a white pom pom tail and used embroidery floss for its eyes and nose.  So I don't know but is it kind of scary when you have all the materials to make something?  Hmm, makes me think I have too much craft supplies.  But then there are still so many things I think I want like better crochet hooks.  There are more crochet projects I want try out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cute!!! I suggested to my kid to sign up for this knitting project at school so he could come home and teach us how to knit, but he didn't go for that.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
