Easter Baskets

Hi!  I crocheted these Easter baskets after Christmas when I was tired of making Christmas gifts and needed a break from stamping.  The pattern number is L0136AD from Lion Brand Yarn.  They are only about 6 inches wide so a cute little basket for little kids.

I also crocheted an amigurumi bunny to go in the basket.  ETA:  Sorry, forgot to add that the pattern for the bunny is also from Lion Brand Yarns (60480).  Amigurumi are small and seem quick to make but for me it takes a while cause they are so small.  You crochet all the little body parts separately and then sew them together.  Sometimes I'm not that patient.  So this bunny took me several days.  I'm contemplating making another one cause there are 2 little girls we give Easter baskets too and I can't give one a bunny and not the other.

The ears are large and floppy and I sewed beads on for eyes but maybe that makes him look kind of scary.  I'm looking for safety eyes to use for little projects like this but haven't found any here so maybe I'll have to search online.  I already have requests by my kids to make an alligator and a hippo and a penguin.  Geez, it never ends. 

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

This is soo adorable! I just bought a amigurumi knit book from costco yesterday and hope to make something from it rather than use it as a picture book.

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.
