Sleep Tight Pocket Pillow – Crochet Pattern

Earlier this week, I released a fun Pocket Pillow Pattern that is so much fun! It is a fun way to gift books. Or a useful way to hold/store items you use daily while lounging on the couch (newspaper, remotes, books, iPad). Well, as soon as I designed a couple, I knew I had to include the same idea to the Popular Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set.

The way the stitches are arranged in the Sleep Tight Pocket Pillow allows it to coordinate perfectly with the rest of the set. This makes the gift more complete. You can mix and match the pieces you want and they all are adorable. Tuck either your favorite book into the pocket or even the Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Stuffy into the pocket as well.

Pocket Pillow Pattern – Texture, Texture, Texture

Pocket Pillows, what are they? The new Pocket Pillow pattern is so much fun! It puts a spin on an ordinary household item and changes it into a fun way to decorate or even give gifts.

Pocket Pillows

The new Pocket Pillow Pattern is written so you can design your own. Begin by selecting one of the 3 textured stitch designs that will cover the entire pillow.

The pillow covers are beautiful all by themselves. But, we have to add MORE texture and make the pillows fun and useful. Now comes the hard part, pick one of the 3 textured stitches to make your pillow.

The pattern includes written instructions, photo tutorials and YouTube tutorials for some of the stitches (I hear all you visual learners out there 😉 )!

The Pocket Pillows can also be used as a fun and unique way to give a gift. Add a book to a pillow and give to a teacher, a graduate, a bookworm, the possibilities are endless.

They can also make great gifts to those who like to travel, just add your brochures, maps and travel guides. The pocket pillows will also dub as a touch of home in the RV or backseat of your car!

V Puff Stitch

The Pocket Pillows work great to hold other items too. My daughter uses hers to hold her kindle, she also likes to keep a notepad and pen with it so she can take notes. I love that the pocket pillows can appeal to ALL ages!

I hope you love the design of the Pocket Pillows by Sweet Potato 3. Join my facebook group SP3 Crochet & Conversations and share your finished project, we love seeing them and love support one another in our love of crochet.

Cozy Shawls & Scarves – Crochet Patterns

Keeping warm on those cooler days {yes, they will be here before we know it} is a fun way to add some fun pieces to your wardrobe. One of the more popular, fun and versatile pieces to add is shawls and scarves. I am beyond excited to share my latest project, with Leisure Arts, and show you the Cozy Shawls and Scarves book that includes 7 different patterns.

Sweet Potato 3

I strived to give you 7 different designs that are all different in style, look, texture and design. Using a variety of yarn brands, weights of yarn and colors that compliment each design, I hope you love each one as much as I do.

The colors I decided on in the Cozy Shawls & Scarves book where inspired by nature. I feel closest to the beauty of the great outdoors in the Sawtooth Mountains that I visit multiple times every year with family and friends. Each design included is named after one of the mountain lakes in the beautiful Sawtooths. These are just a couple simple cell phone pictures and don’t do justice to the true beauty of the range.

I hope you enjoy seeing the details of each design included in the Cozy Shawls & Scarves book:

Perfect Slippers for Christmas in July CAL

We all need quick projects for gifts all year long. But, especially for Christmas and this is the time of year we need to start those homemade gifts. I had so much fun designing these for the Christmas in July CAL with Stitches n Scraps and Underground Crafter.  If you haven’t been following you must! So many fun and free patterns and I get to contribute my new Comfy Houndstooth Slipper pattern! 

Slippers Slipper Pattern

The Comfy Houndstooth Slippers are a quick project and can be made in so many fun color combinations. They work up quick and are made in a beautiful Houndstooth stitch that is very easy to crochet. Add a pair of these to a gift package of foot soaks and lotions and you have the spa package anyone would love.
