When I first started crocheting I didn't even know the wide variety of things you could make. To say there is no limit to what you can make for your home is an understatement! Every time I start looking for new and exciting patterns I discover new and unique ideas that are just made out of some yarn in adorable or delicately beautiful patterns.
These round containers are just the perfect size at 3 - 2 inches in height to hold my daughter's hair ties and could be used for so many other items as well! The pattern is available for sale and includes great color photos and easy to follow instructions for these sizes as well as tips to make larger ones.
This Rose Candle Centerpiece is one of my favorite decorations to pull out during the holidays or for a special occasion to dress up the table. This is a free pattern from Free Crochet.com found here. If you love to find new patterns be prepared to spend a little to a long while at this site, they have such great ideas for all experience levels.
What kind of items have you made for your own home like these?
In one of my many Etsy shopping experiences I happen to receive this great business card envelope. So I decided to make my own from a sketched pattern based on it!
I had some extra Origami paper and it was just the right size to make these. Once they're cut out you can glue the flaps and away they go! Such an adorable addition to any correspondence.
Sometimes when you're making items for work or fun you just can't go to the various "print your custom item" sites for what you want.
One of the recent things I wanted was printed versions of the Studio invoices I created on spreadsheet. Trying to upload these to those sites was a nightmare and would always cut off something I didn't want done. So I turned to the internet and did a search to see if it was possible to make a notepad of these myself. Thankfully there was and it wasn't complicated!
Little Birdie Secrets turned out to be just what I wanted, and needed for my project. I was able to finish it in one night and have already had a chance to use my new notepad. The only change, if you can call it that, to the process I did was to just use plain glue instead of the special adhesive they call for. If you'd like to see the instructions follow the linked image below and enjoy!
I've been crafting since early 2010 and have become "hooked" on crochet ever since. My inspiration often comes from my family and anything adorable.
