Remember your favourite shows when you were a kid? Ah, fond memories. I wonder how many were actually super annoying for our parents to watch with us? (I'm looking at you, Barney and Caillou.) I was fortunate enough to grow up with such Canadian classics as Fred Penner, Mr. Dressup, Polka Dot Door, Today's Special… Continue reading A Crocheted Mochi
Get it?? Pointless??? Cuz it's a circle. Ah, puns. Anyway, here is the latest shape-themed pattern. This one is a circle made from single crochet stitches in spiral rounds. The largest circle I've made using this pattern is 18 rows (which is a decent sized circle), but I've calculated the number of single crochet increases… Continue reading Guaranteed to be a Pointless Endeavour
Ok, on to more shapes! This one is a rectangle, and you can tweak it to be as long as you want. (Do you already know the dimensions of your desired rectangle? Scroll to the bottom to figure out the exact pattern you need!) Just like the square pattern, you work this one in rows… Continue reading More Shapes: A Rectangle
Whenever I look at the completed projects section of my Ideal Sphere page on Ravelry, I love how people have incorporated it into a huuuuge variety of projects! For a while now, I've wanted to go back and make more basic shapes for people to use as a spring board. And now I am! Yay!… Continue reading An Ideal Crochet Square
Summer is here, the weather is beautiful, and people are Pokemon-Go-ing all over the place (myself included). It's been a relaxing first few weeks of summer, and I've had a lot of fun doing various creative thingies again (which I plan on posting about). Things may be fine in many of our safe bubbles, but the… Continue reading A Little Rainbow Love
Last week I posted about my pillow shams that I sewed out of absolutely amazing Amy Butler fabrics. I'm totally in love with them. As with most of my obsessions, I have the overwhelming urge to share it with everyone! So (sew), it's tutorial time! Now this is my first sewing pattern tutorial, and it'll… Continue reading Pillow Sham Tutorial
I really love the food network. There's something wonderful about watching other people (who are not me) cook yummy food that just does it for me. One of the things they sometimes do on the food network - after they've already made one recipe - is to use similar ingredients to make another totally different… Continue reading A Chick/Penguin Mashup
Okay, here is the pattern! Wow, it's been a while since I've made a pattern. I hope you have fun with it! (I sure have been). The pattern is a pdf - you can click on the picky, or you can click here. Penguins for EVERYONE!!
Nom ... Nom Nom ... Nom Nom Nom ... Pacman pattern time! It took me long enough to get my act together with this pattern (considering that this has been in the pipelines, almost done for a whiiile now), but now it's ready! Here it is, as a companion piece to the Pacman Ghost pattern:… Continue reading Pacman Pattern Time
Well, I finally wrote up the pattern to my hyper-emotional blorb which I now turned into a pacman ghost! Did you know that each pacman ghost had its own name? Crazy. Wikipedia told me that. Oh, and in case it's been a while since you've played Pacman, their colours are red, pink, blue and orange.… Continue reading Pacman Ghost Pattern!
