Crochet Water Lily Flower

Crochet Water Lily Flower

I was in the mood to make flowers- only I didn’t want to make just any flower. I wanted to crochet a flower that I have never seen crocheted before.
The Water Lily looks a lot like the Water Lotus, but when you really research you will see the difference between the two easily.  I decided on designing a Water Lily because the lilies grow in a variety of colors… allowing my color options to be endless.

11 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

A couple of my crochet blogging friends recently shared 10 things about themselves that most of us would have never known or guessed about them. I found it so nice and interesting to get to know them more on a personal level. We all know each others favorite yarn choices, colors, and projects… but rarely get an inside look on who they really are.
My inspiration for this post were Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet with 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me and  Sedie of Yarn Obsession with 10 Random Things About Me. Also check out 10 Random Things About Kim Guzman and 10 Random Things about Rebeckah’s Treasures.

Now, lets see if I can do this!

Weight Set for Toddlers

Free Toy Weight Set Crochet Pattern

If you have ever had children, you will understand why I crocheted this weight set. Every-single-time I try to work out, my toddler wants to climb over, under and around me. She does her best to trip me… even if it means using her head.
Recently, she discovered my small weights. I told her she isn’t allowed to use them because I was scared she would drop them on my toe. Yes, I said MY toe. Chances are- I would get hurt waaaaay before she actually would.
So here we have it, a free crochet pattern for weights. Now maybe she will be occupied long enough to let me work out for more than 5 minutes at a time. I can dream right? ;)
Here is a photo of her demonstrating how to use the weights for the most outcome. I sure wish I had her energy!

Baby Bunny - Free Crochet Pattern - Review

The Baby Bunny Amigurumi Pattern designed by Simply Collectable Crochet is a quick and simple way to fill up those baskets! Each one can be worked up in about an hour – making this the ideal pattern when you have multiple children in the family.
The body of the adorable bunny reminds me of an egg! One of my favorite things about this pattern is that it’s written in a way that you could use any weight of yarn with the appropriate size hook! I thought about making key chains and using crochet thread or even Bernat Baby Blanket yarn and making a snuggle buddy.
