Are you a fan of the Holey Tops that are in style? Ever walk into a store and see some on the rack but just don’t want to pay $30 or more for one? Well, I don’t know about you, but now that I know how to crochet, I just can’t see myself spending that kind of money when I can just go home and make it! And since I’m not ready to let summer go quite yet, I finally decided to make one, the Trendy Top Overlay. Maybe I’ll get a few wears out of the top before it gets too cold.

Need a fun craft project for little girls? Three words: Hand Chain Scarf! This project can be complete in minutes and you don’t even have to know how to knit or crochet — all you do is use your hands. My nieces were visiting from out of town and were wanting to make something cool. I happened to have 2 extra balls of Boutique Ribbons in Marble and Aurora so I decided to teach them how to make a hand chain scarf.
Are you heading to a luau or beach party anytime soon? Or just simply in need of a fun, comfortable, flowy dress? As I was flipping through Crochet Today’s July/August issue, I came across the Endless Summer Maxi and immediately said to myself, “I am for sure making this!” But was super bummed when I realized that sewing was involved because I don’t know how to sew. Then I thought, well my mom sure does and how awesome it would be to make something together — a Mother/Daughter project! My mom and I are best friends and she’s always telling me that “Mothers Know Everything,” so I thought ohhhhhh how fitting! She can’t say no to this. Haha!!! ;) Continue reading “Cro-Shayley makes Crochet Today’s Endless Summer Maxi a Mother/Daughter Project”

Are you and your newborn heading to a pool party anytime soon? Do you have a friend that’s expecting that loves the beach or lake? A good college friend of mine is due to have a precious little girl in July and I’m attending her baby shower this weekend. She frequently has weekend getaways to the lake and when I saw the Fruity Sandals in the July/August issue of Crochet Today, I most certainly had to make them for her!

Ready for Spring? I sure am! I like lace-stitch style shirts and wearing tank tops underneath so when I saw the fun Tootsie Top pattern in Crochet Today’s May/June 2013 issue I just had to make it! In the past, I had a tendency to make projects that had a quick turn-around so making a top like this, in my mind, was a little out of my league. Especially when I saw that the pattern was an intermediate skill level. I got a little nervous, but I decided what the heck! I stuck with it and didn’t quit!
