Small Crocheted Bowl

Small Crocheted Bowl by Katie Crafts;

Project: Small Crocheted Bowl Pattern

You may remember me mentioning that I acquired a new crafting desk from IKEA the other day. I won’t be posting photos of it til it’s 100% completed and adorable, but in the process of getting it to that point I’m finding I need more storage baskets and bowls than I’d realized. Rather than buy even more than I already have, I thought I’d take a stab at making them myself! Continue reading Small Crocheted Bowl

No Sew Braided Headband

Project: No Sew Braided Headband

Let me preface this post by saying this is one of the easiest headbands you will ever make. The other easiest is in the Tips!

Soon (hopefully very soon!) I’ll be able to put away my adorable winter hat and sport some even cuter headbands in weather that doesn’t freeze my face off. In anticipation of such, I’m on a headband-making-spree. In addition to the reversible headbands that require time, patience and a sewing machine (post on those to come!), I’m making these really fun braided headbands in every color that require only a few minutes and no sewing at all!
