I first discovered Katrinkles and their awesome wooden yarn tools and notions at my LYS, Yarnia. I immediately fell in love. I have an affinity for wood, and Katrinkles uses it to make very useful creations for us yarnie types.
I have a quick and easy sewing pattern and tutorial for you today. The Small Envelope Bag can be made with just two 9×12 inch rectangles of fabric. You can even use scraps of fabric sewn together to make one or both of the rectangles if you would like. Add in one snap and one button, and create a great little gift!
I have always loved these Vintage Crochet Aprons. They just make me happy. I’ve wanted to make one for so long, and I finally decide to just go for it. I’ve included some holiday colors for the stripes to make it seasonal, but you can use any colors you would like. Enjoy!
Mellow Yellow Rug
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot
Many years ago I was in need of a rug at the foot of my sink, so I crocheted one. I love that rug! I’ve been meaning to write the pattern down, and now I finally have. It brightens up the kitchen, adds some padding in front of the sink and absorbs the water that gets splashed when the kids decide to help. I hope you enjoy your Mellow Yellow Rug as much as I’ve enjoyed mine.
Bow ties are cool again! (OK, I’ve always thought they were cool) Make one for yourself, or a friend, with this fun crochet slip stitch pattern. The slip stitch gives a nice rib look, and keeps it from feeling too tight around your neck. Worked in two pieces, one with buttons at the end, and one with button holes at the end, this bow tie is adjustable so it fits a variety of sizes.
