finished project - Spring Bunny

I fell in love with this pattern design, Spring Bunny, from Josephine Wu and I just had to make it. She was so much fun to work on.  She got cuter and cuter with every step and piecing her together became quite addicting.

This little bunny has made her way to the Dominican Republic, into the hands of my sweet little niece.  Aren't the two of them precious together? I think she likes her :)

Here is Spring Bunny enjoying the warm sunshine at a resort, overlooking the pool.  Is it possible to be jealous of a stuffy?? 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and don't forget to check out Josephine Wu's collection of cute crochet patterns for yourself.  You will find her designs on Etsy, Craftsy, and Ravelry.  Enjoy!!

sneak peek

Don't you love homemade dishcloths?  I see them everywhere, from the craft fair to the high end boutique so I'm thinking they must be a favorite item in many kitchens.  

Here is a set of 3 different dishcloths that will allow you to practice your post stitches.  Hoping to have to pattern ready to go later this week!

new crochet pattern - textured pot holder by kim miller.

Textured Pot Holder by Kim Miller
Skill Level: Easy/Intermediate

Styles may change but our needs remain the same, so it was my desire to create a pretty functional pot holder that would fit into our modern decor. This fun pattern is highly addictive and because bobbles are used, as opposed to the popcorn stitch, the pot holder works up relatively fast!

This crochet pattern calls for one 68 yard ball of Bernat® Handicrafter® Cotton for each
pot holder, but any worsted weight (4) 100% cotton may be substituted. The pattern uses the following stitches: single crochet, double crochet, bobble, and picot.

The finished, unblocked pot holder measures 20.3 cm (8”) by 20.3 cm (8”)
