Owl Art

.

Last night,,, After attending a great birthday party for my best friend (Lots of Laughs and Great Food!),,, I had just a little bit of free time… Hmmm… What should I do???    Well, of course I crocheted!  I only have a couple more days to finish anything I want to display in the Artwalk…  So,,, Something quick, simple and very cute!  An Owl Hat!  I found this pattern at one of my very favorite blogs Repeat Crafter Me.  She has so many cute patterns,  make sure to check out her site!  She just posted her latest pattern for a Zebra Hat… It is so great!

.

So I whipped up one of these hats last night and as usual I love this sweet hat!

A Crocheter’s Dozen…

..

Last night I worked on just a few more items for the Artwalk… I tried to think of something I could make several of in just a couple of hours… Hmmm,,, Bracelets…  So, after I finished up my latest rug that I started the day before,,, I got to work on the bracelets!  I was inspired by a pattern I found at feltedbutton.com and decided to whip up a Crocheter’s Dozen of my modified version… You may wonder why I am calling it a Crocheter’s Dozen… Well, I couldn’t stop at just 12, so I made 14…  I wanted a good variety of colors and that’s what I ended up with!!  Baker’s add one to their dozen,,, So why not add two for us crocheter’s!

These bracelet’s are made from Cotton Yarn and a Size I Hook…   I used single crochet in the same pattern stitch as the one from Felted Button.  I added the button instead of a clasp and the loop at the end to go over the button.  Her pattern is easy to follow and I like the idea of the clasp,,, I just didn’t have any… So I winged it!  Each bracelet only took a few minutes and on a scale of 1-10,,  1 Easy-10 Very Hard,,, These are definitely a 1!

.

I also wanted to share the other project I finished up last night.  I have been making Rag Rugs for years and I love them so much… They are fairly simple to make and hold up great!  This Rug is 32″ across and is easy care…  Just wash and dry in your machine!   This rug took just a few hours and I was happy with the results!

Mega Crochet

.

It’s getting close!!! Only a few more days and the Artwalk will be here…This Friday our quaint little town has an Artwalk for all the Galleries and Stores to show off their stuff…  I am blessed to be able to sell my crochet items at Alpine Originals… They are featuring my “Art” for this months Artwalk…

.

Wow… Crochet being featured as the “Main display”…  Who could imagine !!!  Not just your Grannies doilies anymore… Crochet is so popular, and I hope to show some of what can be done with a little yarn(or fabric) and a hook!!!.

So I thought I would share what I made this weekend to add to the display… Of course there are many more items that are already at Alpine Originals… And,,, I plan to add just a few more in the upcoming days…
