Pom Pom Christmas Tree

I love this little tree. I think it's so cute, plus it's so easy to make! I hope ya'll love it too! Scroll down for the video tutorial and the written instructions/material list.

Samhain Voodoo Doll Free Crochet Pattern


Hello! It's Halloween-time and I have a new, free and fun pattern for ya'll! A few years ago, my nephew, Zia asked me to make him a doll inspired by a character from one of his favorite movies. The actual character is very scary looking but I wanted Zia's doll to be adorable, not scary. I started with my Fibro Voodoo Doll pattern and changed a few things. I made his head larger and by adding 18mm safety eyes and expressive eye brows, the doll turned out sad but adorable and Zia loves him. He's a lot of fun to make and I think he is the perfect Halloween doll! Scroll down for the free pattern.

Pom Pom Cat


Hello! Superstitions want to make us believe to be wary or even scared of black cats, but I think black cats are beautiufl and my Ziggy is the sweetest cat that I've ever met. He has become a huge part of our family and he has inspired me to crochet several things, like a cat hat and lacy cat ears and I have a feeling that he will continue to inspire me. Now, I have created a cute cat made out of pom poms! Scroll down for the free pattern!

Sweet Cake Shawl Free Pattern


Hello! Lately I have had an obsession with two things: triangle shawls and cake yarn...this obsession has been fun and I am loving so many of the cake yarns so far.
