Newborn baby hats are a super quick project and they are great to have on hand for baby gifts or to  donate to hospitals or other charities. Today I am sharing a couple different versions of a really basic hat in newborn size.

Rainbow Crossover Crocheted Purse

A couple weeks ago I ran into Hobby Lobby to pick up some things we needed for my son's Pinewood Derby car. I rarely go to Hobby Lobby because it isn't super close to my house so I felt like I couldn't leave without checking out the yarn aisle.

Fireworks Treat Bags

Today I am joining in another round of Craft Lightning, this month with a Patriotic theme. When I was challenged to make a quick patriotic craft that takes 15 minutes or less I immediately thought of making something with my Cricut. Cricut crafts, and more specifically iron on crafts, are often my go to projects for quick crafts. 

V-Stitch Crocheted Spa Set

Mother's Day may have been yesterday but today I am participating in the month long 2019 Celebrate Mom Blog Hop hosted by Pattern Paradise. Each day in the month of May a different crochet design will share a new free crochet pattern perfect for celebrating Mom. There have been lots of great designs so far and will be even more through out the month and there are prizes too, so be sure to check out all of the details.

DIY Ring Dish for Mom

I am super late getting this post up since Mother's Day is tomorrow, but it is a really quick project so maybe you still have time. Or you can use it for other gifting occasions or save it for next year. I found an inexpensive little wooden tray at Michaels, I think it was only $1, and I thought it would be perfect for a little ring/coin/jewelry dish to set on your nightstand. I thought it would be fun for a little handmade Mother's Day gift, although you could leave off the vinyl saying or change it to make it work for anyone.

I really enjoy making crocheted washcloths or dishcloths because they are a great way to try out new stitches. They are pretty quick to make and a set of them can make a great gift.

With Mother's Day just a couple of weeks away I wanted to share a couple of quick gift ideas that you could make for moms and grandmas. This one is super quick and easy to make and can easily be customized for the person you are making it for.
