Granny Square Bunny Banner

It’s not the greatest photo but I wanted to show you that I finally finished a seasonal banner for my kitchen Bay window.  (Yes, there were supposed to be more bunnies but… oh well!  At least I got one banner done!

I used a crochet pattern for the circle and triangle bunnies that I found at Home at My Place.  I winged the square one and then attached them all to a single chain that has 400 stitches.  I used a 4mm hook with some leftover worsted weight yarn.  It was a very simple project that I think turned out pretty darn cute.

Thanks for stopping by today!

St. Patrick’s Day Crochet Patterns – for next year

I don’t know what’s wrong with me.  I’m always two steps and one holiday behind with my crochet projects.

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and I had big plans of creating a crocheted banner decoration for the event… but never got around to it.

A few weeks ago I came up with the bright idea to make crocheted banners, one for each holiday, to go in my kitchen bay window.  Super cute idea, right?  Problem is, I haven’t made any… not one.

This is the window I want to decorate.

So far, since I came up with the idea, I’ve missed Valentine’s Day and now St. Paddy’s.

I don’t even plan to make anything complicated.  I was thinking a string of hearts and a rainbow of shamrocks.

In my defense, I started one for Easter.  It’s going to consist of Granny Square bunnies.

Here’s a photo I took of one of the bunnies that will eventually be hung by its ears.

One done. 2 almost done. About 3 or 4 more to make.

Today, I’m sharing some fun designs I’ve found at Etsy for St. Patrick’s Day crochet patterns.  If you’re like me, this gives us an entire year to get one completed!

Snakes Are A Girl’s Best Friend – Crocheted Gift Edition

As a quick follow up to yesterday’s post, I just wanted to let everyone know that the 50-foot snake worked and all is right in the world of our plumbing today.

I’m very thankful because as much as I’m someone who tries not to waste water, I always shut the faucet while brushing my teeth, that whole “let it mellow” thing is highly overrated.

 

In celebration, I’ve decided to share 3 fun crocheted snake Etsy finds today.  Enjoy!
