O’ Christmas Tree CAL – Christmas in July

There was definitely some glitches along the way, but we made it and the Christmas in July CAL is finally ready! Thanks for your patience as my computer was replaced and updated, whew! Now I can breath again and have some summer crochet fun.

CAL

The CAL project for this year will be the O’Christmas Tree Skirt.

The CAL is designed as a mystery for those that enjoy the unknown and new excitement of each release. HOWEVER, for those that would like to know what the final project will look like you can simply contact me for a quick sneak peak. Just send me a message on facebook for the quickest response.

I will host the CAL  in a facebook group. The group will be private, so if you are making the tree skirt as a gift and want to share your progress, you can. Your posts will not be seen by anyone outside of the group. I love hosting in facebook groups because the interaction is fun and it is so exciting to see everyone’s progress. You will not be required to join the group on facebook, all sections will be posted to ravelry as they are released.

CAL supply list

One of the biggest benefits of a CAL is that large projects are broken down into smaller, sometimes more manageable sections, making the project fun. The first section is the largest part so you will be given a longer time frame to complete it. The remaining sections are fun and much quicker to crochet.

Classic / Traditional Design

If you have participated in a past Sweet Potato 3 CAL, which are usually themed baby blankets, you may wonder about the design. There will be no appliques at all (how many of you are cheering right now?). The theme is just traditional, “Christmas”. This tree skirt will look lovely in any home, even those without children. It is a classic design that I would imagine any age will love.

Intermediate with some twists!

I always want those that join my CAL‘s to learn something new. The stitches are all intermediate and I will do live video’s to help explain each part of the Tree Skirt. I did add a fun twist to one of the sections. This is why you need the bobbins, but please do not let that scare you, I will make sure to walk you through it. I am confident you will LOVE the end result.

The schedule for the CAL is as follows:

June 20 – July 5: Purchase CAL, join facebook group, get supplies.
July 5 – 23 – section 1 (this is the largest section and will take some time to complete)
July 24 – section 2
July 27 – section 3
July 31 – section 4
August 7 – section 5
August 14 – section 6
August 28 – completed projects will get free coordinating pattern

 

One Cup at a Time Coasters – Free Crochet Pattern

Some days you just need a quick, easy, but fun crochet pattern…

The pattern used sports yarn (#2 weight) and a G crochet hook. However, if you have a different yarn weight around, go ahead and give that a try as well. You finished coaster may come out bigger, but it will still work.

Some Bunny To Love Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Some Bunny To Love Crochet Pattern

Everybody needs… Some Bunny To Love!

One afternoon, as I was perusing facebook one of my photographer friends sent me a message requesting a little stuffed bunny for a photo shoot. She wanted the child to be able to hold the little bunny by the arm with the bunny hanging at their side {I’ll be sure to share those photo’s once I receive them}.

Well, if you know me, I immediately sat down and started designing a cute little bunny. I had just finished designing my Sleepy Tight Teddy Bear stuffed animal and loved his long legs and arms. I immediately knew that this bunny would have those same darling features.

Some Bunny To Love

She needed to have some cute floppy ears, beady eyes, and cute nose and subtle mouth. But, even more important is a cute little fluffy tail.

This bunny is so soft and cuddly. You know you want to make one for the upcoming Easter holiday. It can be given to a child as a lovable toy, or you can display her with your decor. So make sure to grab your copy today!

{it will be 50% off through Sunday April 9, 2017, on Ravelry only-no code needed}.

The adorable little guy in the photo is courtesy of my tester Trish <3

See up close images of the set below

The bonnet is made to have floppy ears. You can use traditional/regular yarn for the inside of the ears (shown in photo above), or you can choose to use a more fuzzy yarn, like Bernat Happy, for the inside like the  photo below.

The Bow Tie is a cute addition and can be used with any outfit. The bow tie is made to button in the back of the neck. The button is adjustable so you can make it fit any child. It is very important to make the neck band extra long and not button on too tight.

Bunny in Britches Bow Tie

My favorite part of this set is the britches! There is just something classic about the longer shorts, designed to fit to the knees, with suspenders. I love the old fashion look. The britches are designed to wear over a diaper and can be tied in front to help them stay up. Simply add the pom for a tail and it is the perfect touch.

Now those pieces are all adorable, but I couldn’t stop there. Every bunny need a cute little carrot to nibble on. The carrot is about 8″ tall and works up really quick.

Well, now, that is enough cuteness for one day. Grab this fun pattern and crochet it up for your little one. Share you photo on my facebook page so I can gush over the cuteness overload.
