There's something delightful about sitting outside with a little crochet, sipping some lemonade and enjoying a cool breeze. That's what I had in mind when I designed this...


Under the Awning Blanket Crochet Pattern by Susan Carlson of Felted Button

I'm calling it Under the Awning Blanket. With pretty chained flowers, a lightweight and drapey cotton, and fun Spring colors, it is perfect for just that kind of day. Plus, the cabana-like stripes seem suiting for warmer weather.

How To Crochet a Clean Edge Along a Rough Edge


How to Crochet Clean Edges along Rough Edges Tutorial by Felted Button (Colorful Crochet Patterns)

2014 -- Colorful Crochet Patterns

What a fabulously colorful crocheting year I've had! It's been a bit of a balancing act with family and other responsibilities, but quite productive and wonderfully fun!

Cozies for Apple Soap Dispensers -- Perfect 2-in-1 gift for teachers and neighbors


A while back I picked up these apple-shaped hand soap dispensers at Joann. (I've since seen them at Wal Mart, too.) 

Cozies for Apple Soap Dispensers -- Perfect 2-in-1 gift for teachers and neighbors

Inexpensive and cute I thought they would make nice gifts for teachers--I was thinking Christmas or Teacher Appreciation Week. So I snagged them.

But then, because everything must be covered in yarn ;) I decided that I could whip up two gifts in one:

You know those crochet projects. The ones that only use a skein or two of soft and affordable yarn. The ones that only take a few hours to make but you end up with something stylish and versatile to wear. The ones that are perfect for a quick yet fabulous gift. This is one of those projects.
