Crochet inspirations: clutches and storage baskets

Over the years, I have taken pictures of crocheted items I have found at stores for inspiration and to see if I can replicate it for my personal enjoyment. There are many of free a paid crochet patterns that look similar to the items I wanted to make, so this post is for those items.

Recently, I found this simple crocheted clutch that was apparently made of 100% paper. It looked more like raffia.



Here is a similar clutch that you can make from Yarnspirations: Crochet Clutch free pattern. I was also thinking to try making this with raffia.


I have seen the hanging baskets at Ikea, and I've been meaning to make myself a few of those. 



Here's a similar hanging storage free crochet patterns. First one is from Hooks and Habits. I would make myself a longer version for my bathroom wall.

And here's a free pattern from Red Heart for hanging baskets on a dowel. I love the look of these, and you can make them in any length.


Another great looking hanging basket comes from Counting Crafty Sheep's hair tool hanging basket pattern: 

Do you know of any other great clutch or storage basket patterns?

Celebration of Life

I haven't written a post in a long time, primarily because I have been busy with work, church, spending time with my husband and family. But this month deserves a short post.

My mother passed away in the beginning of June. It was June 8, on my brother's birthday. The rest of this month has felt slow, day by day. I got a few days off from work, mostly to help with the arrangement of the celebration of life. 


But I don't feel like doing anything right now. I have even tried to pick up my crochet with no success. I just need to get out of my life for a moment to contemplate on things.



My mother was the one who enjoyed crafting and making things with her hands. She knitted. She enjoyed cooking and making meals with whatever she had in the fridge. I enjoy doing that now. 

Maybe I should try picking up knitting again. She was the one who taught me. I know she is is heaven, completely renewed and cancer free.

What Are You Doing? April 2019 Blog Hop


Welcome to April! 

In March, I was able to join in the Crochet Madness 30 day challenge. I ave done other challenges in the past to encourage myself in posting daily and thinking outside the crochet box. This one was more crochet oriented, so I had more material to work with. I am on the last few posts for the month, and I will happy to say that I completed the challenge! I have also met a few inspiring crafters and had some lovely comments. You can check out my posts and others on the #crochetmadness hashtag!

What Are You Doing? March 2019 Blog Hop


Welcome to March! February just flew by! March usually brings out the green in us, so I hope to see some green projects this month!

Take a look at what I finished last month! I worked on the 5-star Beanie for more than a month. I was almost done and then I had to frog it, but I was able to finish it correctly! The Youtube video really helped me out!

What Are You Doing? February 2019 Blog Hop


Welcome to February! I've heard so many people had a tough month. Have you seen this meme around? 
This was a tough start to the new year, but we made it! Some of us have started new resolutions, and others are continuing their resolutions from last year (or the years past). We survived the first month, so that shows that we can continue. 
What have you been making for February? I hope to see all the hearts and the shades of red. I have already saved a few crochet patterns on my Ravelry and Pinterest accounts.
