Flip Flop Slippers -free crochet pattern-

Image
Well, I guess I'm going to have to post this pattern today because I keep getting this sent to my wall, messaged, and tagged to me on Facebook :D  I actually did see this prior, via Pinterest and kind of skipped over it, but everyone else seems to really love it!  You can easily turn your flip flops into crochet slippers!  Basically, you just poke holes into the flip flop foam to create a border to crochet into.  (I used a large curved upholstery needle) They are super cute, and the only reason that I had skipped over it, was because I have done it before and the result was great at first... but they didn't hold up.  The foam ripped all of the way through in several places and created holes.  Maybe I used a bad quality flip flop, maybe I was too rough on them, maybe, several maybe's... that being said, maybe I will have to try again and see what happens.  They are pretty adorable, so it's worth it to give it a shot, and nice that someone has explained it out perfectly …

Chevron Belt -free crochet pattern-

Image
I need a new belt, maybe I will make this one!  I have a lot of crochet thread scraps that I could use to give it a cool color combination!  The designer used two strands of crochet thread to achieve the firmness of this belt, but you could most likely use any yarn.  I do like the idea of the thread though, it has a different feel.  I can't wait to get some down time to try this out!

A Crochet Headboard - A look inside my bedroom!

Image
This is where I sleep. I'm inviting you into my personal space today because I want to show you my headboard!  I'm so excited about this because my headboard is of course... crocheted.

I gave my room a makeover a few months ago, and I'm still looking for some pieces to complete the look, like a cool chandelier, and some type of large artwork... I haven't found anything "perfect for me" yet, but it will come in time, I'm sure. My headboard used to be on that list.  I originally wanted a big white upholstered headboard.  I love the way they look, so classy, sophisticated and cozy.  And they're really expensive!  After already dropping a pile of $$$ on decorating the rest of my new house and developing my yard, a big lavish headboard was just not in my budget. And I'm cheap? No.... not cheap, I prefer to save my money for fun and yarn (and landscaping)!  Most of my home decor is second hand finds, that I either re-finish or things that I actually b…

This pretty crochet dishcloth pattern comes right on time for me!  I have a lot of cotton scrap yarn in my stash right now and would love to use it up, and here's a great project to do just that!  I like making my own dish cloths and towels, besides the fact that I just love to crochet, but it's easy to customize anything to match or contrast your home!  This chevron pattern is a nice new take on the ever popular crochet dishcloth!

Comfy Cotton Shorts -free crochet pattern-

Image
This pattern was a spontaneous idea that came to mind after buying this yarn.  The yarn was meant for a different project, but I had decided not to do it, sooo.... I can't stand having a large ball of yarn in my stash with no plans for it.  I have some ideas for crochet cotton shorts, which I was going to use a lighter weight cotton, but thought, "hey, I'm going to try these in the worsted weight."  Normally I would have used a different color, I'm not real fan of this color blend, but I AM pretty happy with the design itself. It's very easy and it works up quick.  
There's also so many ways to customize these shorts!  You can easily make them shorter or longer, use multiple colors, stripes, add pockets or leave them without, or add even more pockets... it's up to you!  I can't wait to see your projects.
And here's a friendly warning! This particular yarn DOES shrink!  So don't put them in the dryer, be safe and hang them to dry! (Unfortunat…

Purple Poncho's Barefoot Sandals -free crochet pattern-

Image
It's that time of year again... time for barefoot sandals!  Crochet barefoot sandals are so fun to make, and there's no lack of free crochet patterns for these kind of foot decor.  I love this particular design for the center flower design and the size.  I find myself steering toward the bigger patterns these days. Go big or go home!  And the center bead adds a bit more to this cute design.
