February: 11 Valentine Hearts Roundup

Happy Valentine's month! It's still Februray, so I can do a hearts roundup for the month!

I love looking at heart crochet patterns on Pinterest and on  Google searches. I created my first list of free crochet heart patterns in 2017. I wanted to add a few more ideas to the list. All these crochet patterns are linked to my Creative Hearts board on Pinterest, as well as paper crafts and decorative containers for Valentine's gifts. Take a look!



Heart Appliques


Boho Hearts
Pattern from Cherry Heart
1. These boho hearts from Cherry Heart are so cute and quick to make. They can be strung up as a banner or used as a decoration for a gift. Why not make a bracelet or a necklace out of them?


Rosy Heart
Pattern from Mia's Heartful Hands
2. This rosy heart pattern has been on the webs for a while, but it is still a great pattern. It would be nice to wear as a pin or brooch. There are also a few videos on Youtube to make a rosy heart, if you need more visual help. Looks liek the original pattern came from Mia's Heartful Hands.


Heart Skin Care/Beauty

Here's My Heart Scrubby free crochet pattern in Scrubby Cotton yarn. Crochet heart scrubbies for those you love! They will enjoy the texture when bathing or washing their face. They're easy to keep clean and fresh; just wash by machine.
Here's My Heart Scrubby
Pattern from Yarnspirations

3. Scrubbies are all the rage along with handmade soaps and scrubs. Did you buy some scrubby yarn and are not sure how to use it? You can download the pattern from the Yarnspirations website.

DIY Mini granny square crochet baskets. 
Pattern from guest blogger Vika Moka on This Little Street

4. Here's a cute idea for a crochet basket with granny squares from guest blogger Vika Moka from A Moka Day. She guest posted on This Little Street with this cute basket design. I know this doesn't have a heart on it, but you can make the granny square design into a heart shape with the alternate color. This basket is great to store beauty products or even your current wip. 

Heart Home Decor

Conversation Hearts pattern from Sisterly Studios
5. This next section is my favorite. I love me some decorative pillows, and these pillows from Sisterly Studios are so cute! (Paid pattern only on Ravelry)
Candy Heart Pillow FREE Crochet Pattern
Candy Hearts pattern from Once Upon A Cherrio
6. If you are looking for an equally cute free pattern, this pattern from Once Upon a Cheerio is it! I really like the cross stitch letters better, and she also has a free tutorial on how to cross stitch.

Heart C2C Sherpa Pillow Free Crochet Pattern
Heart C2C Sherpa Pillow
Pattern from Nana's Crafty Home
7. Another lovely crochet pillow, this heart corner2corner pattern from Nana's Crafty Home is a great addition to the creative hearts board. 

This free crochet pillow pattern with a modern heart makes a perfect DIY gift or dorm room decorating idea. Square cushion pattern includes written instructions, photo tutorial and a chart. | MakeAndDoCrew.com
Crochet Pillow pattern from Make and Do Crew
8. Here's another great pattern for a granny square style crochet heart from Make and Do Crew.

Heart Book Cover

Heart Notebook Sweater
Pattern from guest Little Things Blogged, posted on ClaireabelleMakes 
9. On my last post I listed a few bookmarkers. I found this beautiful heart notebook sweater notebook cover. Once I searched notebook covers on Pinterest, I fell into the depths of lovely book covers. This is a great way to personalize a notebook. You can find this crochet pattern on ClaireabelleMakes


Heart Kitchen



10. I found two dishcloths patterns that I really liked. The hearts dishcloth above are originally from Mailinn on Ravelry, but the pattern information is in Norwegian. Filetstueck on Ravelry created a inspiration and posted the pattern in English. 

BONUS! 11. The last item is a crochet heart doily from NotikaLand on Youtube. This doily is made with thread, but if you make it with cotton yarn it could be made into a nice discloth or placemat. NotikaLand on Youtube.

(One of my pet peeves is not having the correct link on my board or a link that doesn't work anymore. Sometimes the blogger changes their site and moves their posts to the new website. Please let me know if a link doesn't work!)

What Are You Doing? Nov/Dec 2019 blog hop


You know what time of year it is. It's the busiest time of year, and I forget to post last month's blog hop. But this is the best time because this blog hop will last until the end of the year. Florida is feeling the brisk air now, and soon it will be time to wear the scarves and hats I made for this year.

This is what I have been doing since last month. 
More pumpkins! I am loving pumpkins this time of year, and I have tried a few styles of free and paid patterns that I love. I am hoping to write a post about it soon.


What are you working on? 

I want to see some Fall crafts and home decor! 
Are you renovating your home? I need some home inspirations! 
Got any current WIPs (works in progress) that you'd like to share? Have some vacation posts? Got any how-to videos posted this month? You can share whatever creative outlet your interest is in. Share a link from your blog, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, etc!

What Are You Doing? October 2019 blog hop


Just as quickly as my birthday has come and gone, September is over! Here's to a new month of crochet and crafty things! I love this time of year because people decorate their homes in fall themes and festive colors. Although Florida doesn't get the fall-feeling weather until November-December, I still like to craft and create all the fall things! 

I just posted these Tunisian crochet pumpkins on Instagram that I tested for Knitter Knotter. This tunisian pattern is free on her website www.knitterknotter.com, and it is an easy pattern to follow with plenty of video tutorials. Check out this pattern and other free patterns on her website!

What Are You Doing? Aug/Sept 2019 Blog Hop


Well, it looks like I almost missed August! I might as well just combine it with September's blog hop. I want to see all the autumn decor and colors! I hope you can join us for this month's blog hop!

Still on my WIP's is the tapestry crochet project from Hooks, Yarns and Loops and the boho tank top pattern from Hooked on Homemade Happiness. At least I have the pieces together. I just nee to add fringe!

My current project is a Tunisian crochet pattern testing. I completed it within the month, but my pieces were crocheting crooked! I had to start over again. If you want to see the tunisian crochet pattern, it's the Tunisian Lace Top Pattern from Cosy Crochet. You can purchase her pattern now!

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?

What Are You Doing? July 2019 Blog Hop


Welcome to July! There was an issue with my linky tools account last month, so I was not able to post June's list. I hope you can join us for this month's blog hop!

I have started collecting some works in progress (WIPs) from May. I started with a tapestry crochet project from Hooks, Yarns and Loops. I'm taking a break on this one and picked up an boho tank top pattern from Hooked on Homemade Happiness. I'll try to take a few new pictures this month!

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.
Image result for rosa
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.
