Tie-Dye Baby Onesies with Iron On Decals

A couple of weeks ago I shared the tie-died onesies that we made with the dye we had leftover after tie-dying face masks, so today I am sharing what we did to them next. 

Easy Crochet Mask Lanyard

Do you have kids heading back to school this fall, or is everything virtual where you are? We had a choice of in person or virtual school for the first quarter and it was such a hard decision. We went back and forth so many times, feeling like there really was no right answer, but in the end we decided to send them back in person. My kids start next week, but I know some of the schools around us are starting this week. 

How to Use Faux Fur Pom Poms

Faux fur pom poms are one of my favorite ways to finish a crocheted hat. This past week I made several hats and added faux fur pom poms to them. I used a couple different types of pom poms and as I was attaching the different ones I thought it might be a good idea to do a post all about faux fur pom poms, where to buy them, what the different kinds are and how they work, different ways to attach them, etc.

Tie-Dye Baby Onesies

 A couple of weeks ago when we tie-dyed masks I had some dye left in the bottles and didn't want it to go to waste so I looked around to see what else I had that I could tie-dye. I happened to have a package of white onesies that I had picked up one time when they were on clearance for really cheap. I thought they would be good to have on hand for iron on projects, and had used a few for that, but I figured they would be fun to dye as well.

String of Beads Hat

 A couple of years ago I made the pattern for my Bead Stitch Hat and when it comes to wearables it is probably my favorite thing I have crocheted. I have made several since then, including in a few different sizes, and I also have taken that pattern and tweaked it and changed up the stitches to make different variations.

Mossy Path Washcloth

It has been a while since I have shared a new crocheted washcloth pattern. This particular pattern I have had ready to share for a long time but other things kept coming up to push it back, other projects I wanted to share at a specific time, like Harry Potter projects last week, and Christmas in July the week before, or even just projects that were more summery than these.
