5 Little Monsters

Easy Mod Podge Framed Art


Today I am participating in another round of Craft Lightning, this time with the theme of "Wood". We were challenged to make a wood project that takes 15 minutes or less, excluding drying time. I thought this one would be a piece of cake but I had a hard time figuring out a project. I had another project in mind and it was a total fail. I had to scratch that idea and come up with a plan B.

Friday night family movie night is something my kids look forward to every week. I'm not sure if it is the movie that they are watching or the fact that they get to stay up late that they look forward to the most but whichever it is, they love it. As a result it is always fun when a new family friendly movie comes out, like Peter Rabbit, which came out earlier this month.

Today I am partnering with The Genius of Play, an organization that focuses on the importance of play in a child's life, and I have a fun kid's craft to share to help get kids out from in front of the tv and doing something creative.

It has been a long time since I have posted a new dishcloth or washcloth pattern and I have been wanting to for a while. I was really excited when I saw that Red Heart had a new cotton yarn and decided that was the perfect opportunity to come up with a new pattern.

A few weeks ago I was had just finished my crocheted mermaid doll and needed to take some pictures of the doll. I wanted some pictures and video of someone playing with the doll so I asked one of my girls to help me out. I wanted something cute for her to wear in the pictures so I decided to make a quick mermaid shirt for her. It took just a few minutes to throw together and she had a cute shirt to wear. She loved it and has worn it several times since then.

Crocheted Mermaid Doll


My newest pattern for Fairfield World is now available on their site and I love the way this one turned out. This crocheted mermaid doll has been a huge hit with my girls. She is about 18" tall which I thought was a great size to play with.

Embellished Loom Knit Hats: Baby Bears

-Supplies used in this post provided by Darice, this post contains affiliate links-


A year or two ago I shared some pictures of some adorable little fruit hats that my little sister had made using a hat loom and adding a few crocheted elements, like leaves and stems, to make them extra cute. I have had quite a few people ask me about how to make those hats so I decided it was time to make a series of posts on how to embellish loom knit hats with crochet. Although, to be honest, you can use the same ideas and patterns I share here to embellish any plain hat. I have a pattern for a basic crocheted hat in a variety of size from preemie-adult, and you could add these embellishments to those hats as well.
