WolfDreamer: Enderman Plush Well, I finally got it done. LOL.

Of course, I promptly forgot where I put it! I finally found it and now I've got the pattern ready. This pattern is a bit more complicated than some. 100+ Google Tricks That Will Save You Time in School – Eternal Code [via onlinecolleges.net] With classes, homework, and projects–not to mention your social life–time is truly at a premium for you, so why not latch onto the wide world that Google has to offer?

DIY Easy Norwegian House Slippers (the crochet version by Mommyknows) Last week after Craftzine so kindly put my Candy Sushi post up on their site, I found this nifty tutorial for Norwegian house slippers over there as well. I loved them, and the crafty side of me, that I try so very hard to suppress, just came bubbling to the surface. I was going to make these slippers! Crochet Parfait: Day of the Dead Banner I decided to take my skull graph that I made for the Skull iPad Case pattern and use it to make a decorative banner for the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. I made three different skull graphs. You can make all three or just use your favorite and make it over and over. I also show you how to do cross stitch on top of the crocheted, blank skulls if you would prefer to make your skull that way instead of crocheting the whole graph.

Crochet iPhone Case – Lately I’ve been feeling a burning desire to start crocheting again (I think it was around Christmas the last time I picked up a hook). At this time of year it’s not like we need scarves, cowls or beanies so I wasn’t sure what I should make but then I saw some really cute iPhone cases on Pinterest and thought that would be a great project to get me back in the crocheting game again. I looked at a few patterns and in the end just sort of came up with my own design. It’s ridiculously easy and quick – it took me about an hour and I’m a pretty slow crocheter. Even beginners can handle this fun project.
