A few months back I had designed the On The Go Makeup Bag. As much as i loved the hot pink bag for my makeup, its now being used to store my curler clips. This FREE crochet pattern for the On The Go – Take Two, is a lot like the original makeup bag but with much improvement. Some day I will make another one… even better! Until that day I will get lots of use out of this YARNTASTIC makeup bag! Have a happy hookin time! [click to read more…]

Happy Hooking!
After popular demand I decided to write out a free pattern for this beautiful beach bag I designed for my mom. I tested this out when taking a trip to Altoona, PA. I was able to put 3 beach towels, diapers, wipes, sun screen, Tylenol, 3 changes of clothes for my daughter, a small blanket, and I still had more stretching room.
I was long over due for a new ~on the go~ make up bag. When designing this free pattern, I wanted to create something secure. I wanted to be able to throw my makeup bag into the back seat of the car without fearing my makeup would fly out all directions. With success, this bag is so strong, and secure. Its the perfect size for all your makeup tools for ladies on the go. I put all the items I use daily in it and I still had plenty room to spare.
Earlier this week I decided to cut a plastic table cloth into plarn. I basically did what Creative Jewish Mom did with her sheets but without the ripping. While cutting my plarn I was brainstorming for ideas of what I could use it for other than the basic idea of a shopping bag. My first thought was a head band, but that wouldn’t be very comfy. So then I am thinking… hmmm, maybe a plastic bag dispenser… but I really love the way my plastic bag dispensers turned out made from regular yarn. So then I am looking on the web and around the house.. hmmm, what would be good made from plastic. a frisbee? Maybe?! Then I realized how great a ninja star would fly if it were plastic. So that is what I did Plarntastic!! Its not as safe and pain free, when getting hit in the face, as the acrylic ninja star. But it floats! This will always be packed in our beach bag!
