Hey Crafters! Here in the US, we just had Memorial Day Weekend to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our country.

Another… Read More Patriotic Crochet Tank Top
Hey peeps! I haven’t blogged in a while, so I thought I would share a personal project I completed within the last few months. Technically, it’s not my project; it was my sister’s project.

Patients come and go: a middle aged lady with sparkly flip flops, an older… Read More To Crochet or Not Crochet: A Story of Crocheting in Public
I’m back with another Tutorial Tuesday! This week, I decided to share a new skill I’ve acquired: Tunisian Crochet Cables. I picked up Tunisian Crochet both because it easily creates complex textures and because it mimics knit. Fortunately, Tunisian crochet only requires one hook, so it’s much easier to learn than knitting (imo anyways 😉).… Read More Filming Tunisian Crochet Cables Tutorial: Behind the Scenes

But for whatever reason, I usually don’t jump on the bandwagon when something new comes out. Except this time, I’m going to be trendy. 😉 Introducing a no-sew no-fuss crochet goldfish!… Read More Free Pattern: No-Sew No-Fuss Fish!
Balloon arches are super cool. Who doesn’t wish they could have their very own? Okay, so maybe you don’t wish you had a personal balloon arch.

In my last blog post, I shared some projects I hoped to accomplish in the upcoming weeks. Since I was finishing up exams, I didn’t make much progress at first on these projects.
