crochet a little beanie

Hello,

Happy Memorial Day to all my lovely American friends! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're enjoying some lovely weather and yummy food on this long weekend. We had our long weekend last weekend for Victoria Day, so today it's just business as usual around here, which means I've had time to put the finishing touches on my latest pattern!

a fun little hat to crochet
$4.50
This time it's a sweet little newborn baby beanie! The crown of the hat is reminiscent of a granny square (although, it's not actually square!), thus the name baby granny beanie. The body of the hat is striped and it's finished off with a soft scalloped edge, which is a nice feminine detail for a baby girl hat.

This pattern is available for purchase on Craftsy for $4.50. Have you discovered Craftsy yet? It' an awesome site absolutely loaded with all types of crafty patterns. The great thing about it is, once you've paid for a pattern through paypal, you can immediately download it from the site. There's no waiting around for the pattern designer to email you the pdf! It's really great.

Chevron Accent Throw :: a pdf quilt pattern


$9

The Chevron Accent Throw is a versatile lap quilt that will add a touch of vintage modern to any couch or armchair. It would also make a very striking wall hanging or table topper. To easily change the size of this quilt, simply use larger or smaller squares. The instructions will work for any size square! I like a generous sized throw for the living room, so I used 6” squares, resulting in a finished size of approximately 52” x 52”.

The Etsy listing is for a pdf quilt pattern.The pattern will be emailed to you within a day of receiving your payment, more likely within minutes! If you'd rather order directly from me, that is fine, too! I accept PayPal.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for sharing, tweeting and pinning my patterns! 

Virginia Davidson of geekyandsassy.com so kindly reviewed this pattern. Here's what she had to say, "Love the fact that you organized it in bullet points/outline form. Very easy to read. Well thought out. Pictures well done. Your explanations and directions are excellent! (chalk lines down the middle, etc...) Seriously it may be one of my favorite patterns I have followed! Thank you for the opportunity! " Thank you, Virginia!

Grabbit Sewing Tools Review and Giveaway

*** The winner is Colleen Walker! ***

Hello,

Grabbit Sewing Tools recently sent me 3 of their products to try out and they're also giving away one set to one of my lucky readers! Please leave a comment on this post to be entered. Contest is open to Canada/USA. Winner will be randomly chosen on May 10, 2012.

BobbinSaver is, by far, the best method I've come across for storing and organizing bobbins! It holds both plastic and metal bobbins.

The Grabbit Magnetic Pincushion is a real time saver! I find it much quicker and more convenient to grab pins off  here rather than a traditional pincushion and when you're done with a pin, you just drop it in the direction of the magnetic pincushion and the magnet will grab it and pull it into place. Excellent!

This little gadget is great for those of you who want to be super organized. The Spooler Spindles hole your spool of thread and matching bobbin together in one tidy little package.
