Thanksgiving Turkey Crochet Toilet Paper Roll Cover



As a crocheter, I find it necessary to crochet my own home decor, especially for the holidays. Not only is it fun to create things, I also end up with decorations that no one else has!

We recently bought a new house and our powder room is rather plain. To jazz that room up a bit when I have my family over for Thanksgiving, I am definitely placing this turkey toilet roll cover in the powder room!

Rainbow Slouch Crochet Hat

Winter is coming! No one wants to admit it, especially me, but it's true.

My kids love when I make them hats because it's easier for me to make what they want instead of aimlessly roaming stores looking at hats that are ok, but not really what they want.

I made this rainbow slouch hat for my daughter a few years ago and while it still fits, it is very well worn and she could use a new one. It's about that time of year to crochet hats so we're not scrambling to find something on that first cold day.

You can certainly use any color combinations you (or your child) wants, but I don't think I've met anyone who doesn't love a rainbow.

Star Scrubbies




Crochet scrubbies are a great way to use up leftover yarn from other projects. You can use these scrubbies to wash yourself or to clean your house. Cotton yarn works best for items like these. You can use any colors your heart desires. At the bottom of the post, I have some tips for using different colors, including red, white and blue stars.

Happy Cactus Pin Cushion





It seems everywhere I turn I see a succulent.  If you're like me (crafty with a black thumb), it might be better to make yourself a happy little cactus. If you're a crafter, you can stick all your pins in needles in your cactus. Or you can one of these cheerful guys for someone you know who also loves plants but also has a black thumb.

St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun Boot Cuffs


Boot cuffs are some of my favorite things to make. Not only are they simple, but they work up pretty quick!


I don't know about you, but where I live, March is typically a pretty chilly month and still falls into the boot cuff season. But whether is cold or not, showing off your Irish spirit is a must for St. Patrick's Day!



Similar to my Santa Boot Cuffs, these cuffs can be worked up in a variety of sizes and each size does offer some stretch to it. I've written this pattern for three sizes - small, medium and large. If you're unsure of what size to make, measure around your calf where your boot cuffs will sit. To change sizes, increase or decrease the number of rows made until your beginning strip of rows can wrap around your leg.
