Double Cluster Crocheted Hat

-Yarn for this project provided by Darice. This post contains affiliate links-


In my last post I shared how I used my Criut Maker and Cuttlebug to make embossed leather tags to put on crocheted hats, blankets, scarves, bags, etc. I had the idea for that project but I needed something to put the tags on so that I could see if it worked. I made a quick hat to try it out and now I am going to share the pattern for that too.

Embossed Leather Tags

I have cut a lot of things with my Cricut but up until recently I hadn't tried leather. When I went to the Cricut Mountain Make-a-thon this summer and they talked about the Maker cutting leather and I started thinking about projects I could make. While there I also went to a class where we used the Cuttlebug and the person teaching the class mentioned that it would emboss other materials beyond paper and card stock, one of which was leather. I had never really used a Cuttlebug before and since I don't do a ton of paper crafting I hadn't ever really considered getting one. Then I had the idea for this project and decided I needed to get one.

Sedge Stitch Stocking

-This post Sponsored by Darice-


I love to try out new crochet stitches but I have also found that I have some favorites that I always come back to. One of those is the sedge stitch. I love the texture of it and although I think that the only thing I have shared on my blog, before today, that uses that stitch is a dishcloth pattern, I have used it for other projects too and I always love the look of it. I will have to share some of the other projects I have made with that stitch soon.

Joy Sign- A Quick Christmas Craft

-This post contains affiliate links-


A couple months ago I participated in a Halloween themed round of Craft Lightning, where a bunch of bloggers get together to share quick craft projects that can be made in 15 minutes or less (drying time excluded). This week is the Holiday round and today I am sharing my project. Last time I made a quick little Halloween sign and I really like the way it looked sitting up on my mantel with my other Halloween decorations so I decided to use that as inspiration for this month's project. I used the same kind of small wooden canvas and cut out a Christmasy design with one short word, this time I chose the word Joy.

Thanksgiving Window Cling Decoration

-This post contains affiliate links-


For Halloween I decided to make cut out some window cling to put on our front door. My kids really liked it, especially my youngest daughter who helped me put it up. I finally took it down a couple days after Halloween but I really wanted to put up something new for Thanksgiving. One of my boys requested a turkey so that is what we did. I added some words and a pumpkin too. It is really hard to get decent pictures of the glass door because of the reflections, I think it looks better in person than I can capture but hopefully it gets the idea across.

Thankful and Blessed Wall Hanging

I was playing around with my Cricut the other day and made a little wall hanging for Thanksgiving and I thought I would share it here as a quick project idea. One night last week I got the kids in bed and was waiting for my husband to get home from work. I probably should have been working on writing up blog posts or cleaning my house but it was one of those days that I just wanted to make something. Not necessarily work on a project that I needed to do for some reason, but just sit down and play around with my craft stuff, just to be creative for no other reason than because I like to. This little banner was the result of that late night crafting session.

Crocheted Christmas Elves

-This project sponsored by Fairfield World-


It is time to start thinking about Christmas crafting and this year I made these cute little crocheted Christmas Elves for Fairfield World. They both have little striped shirts and suspenders, pointy hats and pointy ears. The girl has a dress and braided hair too.
