Crafty Goodness Completed!

Well, I'm able to cross a thing or two off my crafty to do list, but, of course, I've found more projects that I need to add.  I'm hoping that the kids will entertain themselves a bit today so that I can get in some crafty time, when in reality, I should be cleaning!

The first is the hook case for my all my crochet tools.  I used some fabric I bought last year from an online shop (I think it was superbuzzy)  that specializes in Japanese fabrics.  I only bought a small bit, so this was the perfect project for it.  I teamed it with some tan linen and a pink ribbon closure.  I'm not crazy about the ribbon I chose, but it works!

The next project I finished wasn't on my list, but I love it so much!  I crocheted a cape for Mallory over New Years out of pink Cotton Tots yarn - I won't even show it to you now it looks so awful!  The yarn is so soft and pretty when you start, but before you are even done with a project it looks dirty and worn.  Also, I used a pattern I found on Ravelry, but it was done in the treble stitch, which I am not in love with.  

After searching for a new pattern and not finding exactly what I wanted, I decided to make my own pattern and the results are exactly what I was looking for!  Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures yet of her wearing it, but I will get some soon!


And last, but not least, my in progress scarf that I am attempting to knit!  It only has one dropped stitch (so far), but is curling terribly on the ends.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, as I am following the pattern, but I think I will just go with it for now.  I'm hoping to finish and wear it at least once before it gets hot again here in Florida!


I linked up my cape to Made By You Mondays on Skip to my Lou!  Check it out Here!


  1. I just LOVE your crochet tools case! Really pretty fabric... well done!
    Your knitting is quite good, I think. It looks very even.

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment.
    I am a bit jealous of all your crocheting. I am useless with yarn and just adore the toys and hair accessories you've made.
    Nice to "meet" you!

  3. Your crochet case is adorable! I love it. Now if only I know how to crochet...
    Thanks for commenting on my blog! =)

  4. Your crochet case is awesome! I love the fabric. Too cute! The cape is pretty, too. I love brown.

  5. Fabulous! I really need a case for all my needles. I'm so impressed you have time to make one. Love the cape. Are you on Ravelry?

  6. Love the crotchet tools case... what a great idea. :)
