Leather Tags for Crochet Projects

-This post may contain affiliate links, some products used in this project provided by Cricut and Plaid Crafts-


A few years ago I made some leather tags that could be sewn onto crocheted items like hats. I cut them out with my Cricut Maker and then used my Cricut Cuttlebug to emboss the leather with different designs. They turned out kind of cool, the only problem was that I kind of wanted to be able to make more personalized designs than the Cuttlebug embossing folders allowed.

A couple of months ago I made the Criss Cross Hat and ever since then I have been wanting to make a matching cowl or scarf.

Crochet Project Bag Iron On Designs

I don't know about you, but I am never working on just one project. I always have multiple projects going at once. Sometimes it makes sense, like one of them is big or has a bunch of little pieces so I really only work on it at home, and another is a small project that I take with me to work on in the car in the school pickup line or other places I will be waiting. But plenty of other times the only reason is because in the middle of one project I get an idea that I just can't wait to try out so I start something new before I finish what I am working on, or I just get bored with a big project and have to break it up with something small.

 I feel like for most crafters the end of the year is often spent making projects meant for others, whether for gifts for friends and family, or to sell during the holidays. Either way it seems like we don't keep a lot of what we make, so I thought that would be kind of fun to share some projects over the next few days that are things you could make for yourself. Not that you can't make them for others, just that you could make them for yourself if you want. 

Top 20 New Projects of 2020


At the end of every year I do a top posts of the year post. Since this year is 2020 I decided to do a top 20. It is always kind of fun to go back and look at the projects I have made over the past year. This year I didn't feel like I was able to get as many projects done thanks to everything that happened this year so it was neat to go back through the year and see what I was able to do. One thing that I found really interesting is that most years almost all of my top posts are crochet projects. This year there was much more of a mix, still lots of crochet but also some sewing, Cricut, and kids crafts thrown in.

Twisted headbands, or ear warmers, have been all over lately and I have been wanting to make some for a while. They are really easy to make and super customizable. 

Crochet Iced Gingerbread Ornaments

 The other day I was scrolling through Facebook and one of my friends had shared a picture of some gingerbread cookies they had made. They were decorated with lines of white icing and when I saw them I immediately had the idea to try to crochet something similar.
