Happy Flower Decoration

Happy Flower Decoration
This is a pattern/tutorial to show you how to make this Happy Flower wall hanging. You can read more about the design and making of the original decoration in this post. I'm using a cotton yarn to make this decoration, it's Rowan Handknit Cotton, a fairly robust DK weight yarn which I work on a 4mm hook. Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) htr [half treble]:: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US hdc stitch) OK.............here we go........................................... :: Round 1 :: :: Round 2 :: There.

Teeny Tiny Hearts This is my pattern for making Teeny Tiny Hearts which are rather on the cute side and super easy and quick to do. The pattern is written in UK terms, the stitches as follows :: sl st :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc (double crochet) :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook. htr (half treble) :: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook. tr (treble) :: yarn over , insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (two loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through remaining two loops. For US peeps: UK dc = US sc UK htr = US hdc UK tr = US dc To begin :: chain 4, join with a slip stitch to form a ring. Chain 2 (counts as 1 dc) (picture above)...

Hand Stitching, part 1 - LA One of my favorite crafts is hand stitching-- it's fun, addictive, expressive and relaxing :) Over the next few weeks, I'm going to share easy ways to make your own patterns for hand stitching along with some tips and ideas :) These are some samples of my past projects-- I like to draw patterns freehand and use my handwriting. However, sometimes I adapt clipart type images to make a more complicated pattern, like the sewing machine or I just stitch the outline of an image I love, like the Goonies "Hey You Guys" silhouette :) I use a Back Stitch for all my hand stitching because it's very versatile and I like the look but you can use any combination of stitches for your projects... there's lots of fun ones! Today, we're going to start with handwriting & transferring your pattern :) You will Need: - Card-stock or Thick Paper (I cut a piece of 6x8" card-stock & folded it in half to create a greeting card) - Needle & Scissors - Embroidery Thread - Scrap Paper & Pen - Thumbtack or Piercing Tool

- StumbleUpon If you’ve been following my blog, you know how I made 60 of these painted frames with song lyrics for our wedding decorations /favors… Well, a lot of wedding guests loved them and took one home, but we had a ton left at the end of the night, which we boxed back up and took home with us… So we now have 30 of them hanging on our big white living room wall! Yay!! So, hey, you want to know how to make these yourself? I made 2 different types of painted frames: textured frames that were just plain spray painted, and smooth(ish) frames that were painted with lace used as stencils. Your first step is to take a trip to your local thrift store (or several of them) and find frames – whatever sizes you want (mine were 3×5, 4×6, and 5×7), either textured to do the simple version, or plain untextured frames to do the lace stenciling. I did them in batches of 6-10 at a time – sprayed 1 coat over them all, then went back with a 2nd coat over them all. Let dry completely as the spray paint can instructs.

Stormy Seas Crochet Triangle Shawl | Rich Textures Crochet I have been loving making shawls at the moment! And when I came across this colour way in the Caron Big Cakes, I couldn’t resist grabbing it for this triangle shawl crochet pattern. I never thought of myself as a shawl person, but this past winter I loved having one hanging around my reading and crochet chair. It was perfect to grab and toss over my shoulders on a chilly afternoon or evening. This triangle shawl now has a permanent place on that chair! Caron Big Cakes by Yarnspirations I’ve always enjoyed using the Caron Cake line of yarn. Some of my other Caron Cake Patterns include the Around the Bend Throw – Free Crochet Pattern and the Ripple in Time Throw – A Free Crochet Pattern. I love how soft they are. You will also need a 6 mm crochet hook. The Design and Construction: I have classified the pattern as an intermediate pattern simply because of the variety of stitches.
