As soon as the warm weather starts coming, I get in the mood for some new short sleeved shirts 😛 After wearing scarves all winter, sometimes plain t shirts feel so blah and boring. I got these 2 shirts from Sears with surprise points (anyone else a fan of those??) for a total of $1 & was determined to turn them into a cute shirt. With minimal sewing knowledge and an hour’s worth of time, you can make your new favorite summer shirt! 🙂

Free Pattern for {Cable Knit Cup Cozy}

Free Pattern for {Cable Knit Cup Cozy}

I have for you today a free pattern for a super cute {cable knit cup cozy}. Even if you’re a beginner knitter, I think you’ll find this pattern pretty simple. I’ve been knitting for awhile now, but just a few years ago I attempted my first cables. There’s something about cables that I just LOVE! I really thought they were harder to do. I’ll have to say, I was quite surprised how easy it was! And since my first attempt, I’ve made beautiful cable knit pillows, cup cozies, afghans, and scarves. Knitting cables is a bit addicting for me. 🙂 My brother has requested a cable knit sweater, but I have yet to do that project! . . . maybe one of these days. 🙂

Who doesn’t like their own cup cozy instead of the plain ones from your favorite coffee shop? Usually when we get coffee out, there are several of us sisters together and it’s easy to get our cups mixed up. So, with your own unique cup cozy, everyone knows whose cup is whose. 🙂 And, you can show off your chic cup cozy to everyone else in the coffee shop, right?! I love this pattern because it reminds me of a cozy sweater on these cold days. So, here’s the free pattern . . .

DIY Crochet Circle Puff Pillow Pattern

 

Crochet Puff Pillow Free Pattern

Recently I found a free popcorn stitch flower pattern on bhookedcrochet.com, and the bold and beautiful design was just begging to be turned into BIG form and take center stage. 🙂 Brittany mentioned in the instructions that this flower pattern can just continue and continue by following “the rules of crocheting in the round.” I have done a lot of crocheting, but I wasn’t sure what exactly that was . . . so I had to look it up 😉 It was a very simple rule to follow, and I kept crocheting and crocheting until I used up my whole skein of yarn to make an 18″ pillow front! I’ll take you step by step through the process and show you how simple it is to make one yourself. A statement pillow in the exact color that you want can cost a pretty penny . . . this one only cost $9.

What you need to make your own 18″ pillow:

  • 1 skein yarn (I used the new Big Twist yarn from Joann’s – used a 40% off coupon and got it for under $2)
  • Size H crochet hook
  • 20″ backing fabric (can literally be ANYthing from home decor fabric to knit to calico – mine was $2)
  • 20″ fabric for inner pillow (this won’t be seen; any fabric will do – I got a thin calico for $2)
  • fiberfill (I got a 24 oz. bag for under $3 and I think it’s enough for 2 pillows)

Monogram Felt Pouch

Monogram Felt Pouch

This monogram felt pouch is a perfect gift to give to someone you love, and it’s so neat to give something personalized just for them!  I like to give people handmade gifts. 🙂 There’s just something special about it, and something they’ll always remember. For this project, you don’t even need to know how to use a sewing machine. It’s all hand sewn, and anyone can do it! It’s that simple. Wouldn’t this be a good little pouch to store phone cords or chargers in? That’s what I first thought of putting in it. If you’re like most people, you’re forever trying to find your cord or charger, right?! Put them in this little pouch and you’ll always know right where they are. 🙂 This is a lightweight pouch, so you’re not going to want to store heavy items in it. Joann Fabrics sells some really cute print pieces of felt as well. You could do a print felt piece and a solid monogram letter or shape for a different look. Let your creative juices flow and you’ll come up with something super cute, I’m sure of it!

It’s so simple to make this monogram felt pouch!

Here’s what you need:

a piece of felt (you can find these at Joanns for like $.29!–I used a piece 9 x 12)

some DMC floss

a scrap of fabric (about a 5″ square)

a scrap of fusible fleece (about a 5″ square)

a 7″ zipper

a printed letter or shape

Here’s what you do:

Monogram felt pouch

Start by making a line down the center (parallel to your short sides.) I made a couple of marks on each end as shown in the picture and connected my marks.

Now you’re going to make the hole for your zipper. From the ends where your center line is, measure about 1 1/4″ in and make a mark.  Do the same thing from the other end.

Working off of your center marking line, measure 1/4″ from one side and mark it all the way down to the line you made in the previous step.  Do the same thing on the other side of the center line.

You should now have a long, skinny rectangle marked on your felt. Take your scissors and cut out that rectangle like in the picture below.

Choose your font and letter and print it whatever size you want. You can see from the picture above the size of my letter in comparison to the felt. Continue Reading
