Hat day Challenge Day #7

Craft Wars

I am not sure if I am just the last one to jump on the bandwagon, but today I have discovered the show Craft  Wars on TV hosted by Tori Spelling. I cannot believe I have never heard of it. It comes on Tuesday nights on TLC at 10pm I believe. http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/craft-wars . If you go on the website, there are tons of links to certain crafts and ideas of all kinds. I am dying with excitement about this and cannot wait to find some time to sit and read it all. Actually, I am more excited to begin doing some crafts from the site!
 Here is a link to the site for Home Crafts to do: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/crafts.htm
 Here is a link on the site for DIY Projects to do: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/diy-projects.htm
Check out the rest of the stuff on there and watch the show, this is exciting!

Hat Challenge Fail.. Challenges?

I was excited, I was motivated, I had new yarn and everything. However, I couold not complete my Hat week challenge because we were in the process of moving and tons of other things getting done. I actually was supposed to be packing the other night and litterly had to stop and crochet for a little bit because I was itching to do so. Too funny. I will do this Hat Challenge when things get back to normal and unpacked and stuff. I do want to try another challenge of somekind though , any suggestions?
LEAVE A COMMENT SUGGESTING A CHALLENGE I SHOULD TAKE ON PLEASE!

They Love their Chickie Blocks!

Chickie Block



My niece Sophia asked me if I could make her a chick. She wanted a stuffed animal. So of course I said yes to her! After thinking and testing out different materials and patterns on what would be best, I made Block Chicks! And instead of boring plain yellow, I used patterned fabric and it turned out adorable, So adorable that I made one for her sister Sarah as well! I hope they Love them!

Need For Inspiration

I always have a want and need to create something. This could be something sewn, knit, crocheted, painted, glued, strung, etc... I always want to create. What the problem seems to be is that I want to make something other people want. Some peice of inspiration is needed and greatly appreciated if anyone has opinions. Thanks! Inspire Away or Be Inspired!

Love crocheting to fabric

Crocheted this baby woobie, also quilted for added texture . Pretty cute.

Crochet /Onsie shirt

How did I do? I'm thinking of making a shirt like this for myself!

Up cycle a Onsie

Any parent with babies can relate to having many many plain white onsies in the house. I have decided to turn them into something better applying my crocheting skills. Pictures when I am finished!

Crocheted Beanie




I pushed aside the sewing machine for now and picked up the yarn and crochet hook. This hat is so adorable I am thinking of making a few more. Timmy requested a red one haha. Let me know if you like! I have had much going on and little time to create. Between school and life, I need to prioritize and start crafting more :)
