this week’s awesome finds

This fabulous phases of the moon shirt, on Raegun Ramblings.

 

Look at this toasty pizza blanket! From By Jenni Designs.

 

I love the chocolate bunny one. Sweet cupcakes by Candy van Sweet on Ravelry, free patterns!

 

A cool friend pointed me to these lovely clouds ^_^ by Gateand Handmade Crochet.

 

Another lovely design by Crafty Queen. The granny cardigan just looks so comfy <3

 

I love negative spaces filled with strings. The tutorial is in French but it’s got wonderful self-explanatory pictures. From Jesus Sauvage.

 

I was tempted to buy the faux succulents while wandering in Michaels one day but didn’t know what to use it for, and now I know! I love that it’s made with an embroidery hoop! Check out the minimalist air plant versions too. I might just make that and will never kill another air plant again. From Delia Creates

 

These are the most fabulous! Looks like I have to get myself to Old Navy again for more flip flops! Yes I already have an open-toe pair that I have not yet have the chance to wear, but one always needs more than one pair of summer shoes. From Make & Do Crew.

So grateful for the warm spring weather today (finally!), hope everyone’s enjoying spring!

 

this week’s awesome finds

It’s March and winter has returned for its (hopefully) last hurrah with much snowiness and bitter winds. So, welcome to a very cozy episode of awesome finds! :D

This phone case is ingenious — you open the case by taking off the helmet, which is latched onto the button nose when closed! (I don’t think Darth Vader would like me using the words “button nose” on him. But there it is, his nose is a button.) Paid pattern by Anna Vozika on Ravelry. There’s a Yoda version too!

 

I love kimono slippers, I think they’re very stylish. And these are very easy to knit, I just wonder where one could buy thick wool felt for the soles, if not buying the felt soles from the online store. Maybe an alternative would be flip flop soles, but that’s less cozy. From Joe’s Toes

 

A perfect stash-buster project with stylish chevrons. From Dandelion Daze.

 

A lovely, squishy stitch that I think would make a nice seat cover or a bath mat. Or a clutch with that funky neon yellow! From Notey / Behooked Crochet.

 

Really like the asymmetrical stripes on this cardigan. It uses thick wool and large needles so it should be a quick make… Can one have too many cardigans? From Of Two Wands.

 

 

Did you know that sprouts could grow in a jar? Magical! This means that winter doesn’t stop us from doing some kind of gardening. Not that I do any kind of gardening in the spring/summer… But this is probably the easiest, lowest maintenance, most kid-friendly kind of gardening ever. We bought a sprouting jar from Young Urban Farmers at a community fair recently, and have already harvested and enjoyed the adzuki sprouts! Unfortunately they don’t seem to sell the sprouting jars online, but here’s a tutorial on how to make your own from Pass the Pistil. The friendly urban farmer at the fair did say to buy sprouts from here rather than bulk barn to get better germination rates. I also post about our sprouting progress on Instagram if you’d like to check it out! :D

 

Finally, you can cheer anyone up and chase the winter blahs away with this unicorn puppet made with an origami heart! From Willow Day.

Wishing everyone a good week filled with simple joys :)

this week’s awesome finds

gift-making season (aka Christmas elfing season) is here! :D :D :D

Really like this cardigan from Lion Brand Yarn. It’s loose-fitting so the measurements don’t need to be super exact, which makes it a nice gift to crochet :)

 

Sweet origami brooches from Lana Red Studio.

 

A bit steampunk and very festive, must give this a try. Earrings made from hex nuts from Cafe Craftea.

 

More hex nut goodness from Hello Glow. A trip to the hardware store is in order.

 

These are the sweetest. From Petit Bout de Chou.

 

Stumbled upon something similar on a Japanese Instagram account. Could not for the life of me find that account again, but found a resin tutorial that looks very similar. Aren’t these gorgeous? From Nunn Design.

 

A beautiful pine cone pattern using corner to corner crochet — something I have yet to try! Would make a lovely pillow. From Make & Do Crew.

Say “I love you” in ASL and shrink plastic :D From Greenbean’s Crafterole.

 

Happy crafting! :D

 

 

this week’s awesome finds

Flamingo summer love :) from Golden Lucy Crafts.

Never too early to start crocheting for cooler weather. Car coat spotted on Ravelry by Brenda Grobler.

They make an excellent birthday gift! From Drawn to DIY.

Cutest thing I’ve seen made with bottle caps. They make great fridge magnets! From WhiMSy Love.

I don’t have a paper cutting machine and cutting these by hand would be quite a challenge, but I love the idea. From The House the Lars Built.

Thinking of making a seat cover with this, the best thing is that even though it looks like they’re flower motifs that are painstakingly sewn together, there’s actually no sewing involved! From MyPicot.

Might give this a try since flipflops are on massive sales at the end of summer! It’s got some nice instructions for preparing the flipflop soles for crochet. Doesn’t include pattern for crocheting the shoe tops, but there are lots of free crochet shoes pattern out there, surely one will work for this. From A Crafty Cook.

A very cute toddler dress pattern by One Dog Woof :D I wonder if it’d work as an adult size top too.

Oddish is my favourite :D Make a garden-full with this cute pattern by Yarnmon!

And maybe hide them at Pokéstops, like Knotty Nicole does :D (via Bored Panda) I don’t play Pokémon Go but if the game starts to include catching crocheted plush I’d be all over it!! Knotty Nicole shares her Pokémon patterns on her Ravelry page.

Have a great week everybody!

Have a wonderful rest of the week, everyone!
