Baby Girl Blanket, Hat, Scratch Mittens Gift Set- Finished Friday

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve written last. We were on a month-long vacation out west, which was wonderful, then it was getting home and settle back in, and then laziness I suppose! So it’s time to get back to it! But I have definitely been busy crafting the entire time! Hopefully over the next few weeks I’ll get to show you most of what I’ve been up to.

For today, I’m sharing this adorable baby girl gift set that I just finished yesterday- complete with a stroller blanket, hat and scratch mittens!


The blanket pattern can be found at

The mitten pattern can be found at

The hat pattern is my own that I made to coordinate with the blanket! I’m so excited to be finally creating some of my own patterns. I’m trying to decide if I want to write up the pattern to put on Etsy or not.

The gift set can be found in my Etsy Shop, as well as just the hat/mittens as a set, or even the hat by itself! Here is a direct link to the listing: baby girl set. I also have some done in a yellow/white and green theme which is great for a boy or girl! Go check them out!

Crocheted iPhone cozy (free pattern)- finished Friday

Not so long ago I got a new iphone. Of course, old cases never fit new things, do they? LoL! So I wanted something quick that I could protect it right away and I hate spending a fortune for things like that. So of course I turned to my yarn stash for some help. In no time at all I whipped up this little cozy for it.

(Please excuse the numerous dog hairs- I had misplaced it for a while and found it on the floor under a basket. I didn’t take the time to pretty it yet.).

I made own pattern, and it was super easy! I simply chained 15, then joined it with a slip stitch to the first chain (be careful not to twist!) to make a circle. Then I just single crocheted in every chain. At the end of the round, I didn’t not join to 1st stitch, just kept spiraling around until it was long enough to cover my phone (about 15 rows. You might want to mark your rounds if you choose to count. Or just eyeball it until it fits). I did join that final stitch to the beginning of that last round (I did mark each new round). Bind off and weave in end. Turn inside out and whip stitch your bottom closed, weave in end and turn right side out. Add an embellishment if you choose.
I think you could easily add a cute little embellishment of your choice to cuteness it up- the possibilities are many!
Now I know it’s protected when I drop it in my purse as I rush out the door. 🙂

Finished Object Friday- Army Checkbook Cover


I managed to finish my checkbook cover that I had posted a picture of in my Work in Progress post on Wednesday. I think it turned out pretty cute! It’s my own patter that I came up with. I love the cammo yarn by Red Heart! I plan to do covers with the other military branches soon. Navy will be next as I am getting ready to do a craft fair down near the naval academy in a few weeks.
