Egg-cellent Egg Aprons

Image
I crocheted these Mother/Daughter coordinating Egg-cellent Egg Aprons in camouflage. I LOVE how they turned out! I used Red Heart Super Saver in the color Camouflage and Caron One Pound in the color Forest Floor.


You can find the free pattern for the adult size here and the kid size here.

Poop Ducks

It's Poop Duck season at my house. Poop ducks are a family legacy. My mom started crocheting these when I was a kid. She didn't use a pattern. When I was in my early twenties she showed me how to crochet them, we still do not have a written pattern and prefer to show our children/grandchildren how to make these in person. These are some of my recent duckies so far this year...

Baby Mermaid Tail Cocoon  Crochet Pattern


I crocheted this baby mermaid tail cocoon recently and I love the way it turned out. I started out at first by using the crocodile stitch but thought that stitch might get baby's toes stuck in it, so I started searching for a tighter stitch that still looks like scales and I came across this free pattern that I altered a bit. I crocheted through round 30. It was about 22" long before the waist and fin were added. I used Bernat Happy Holidays yarn in the color Glittery Green. I used just under 7 ounces (2 skeins). As you can see I designed my own fin for this tail and also did my own stitch around the waist decreasing each round. I have crocheted this fin a few times now but have yet to write out the pattern for it. I will update this pattern when I make another one with the fin and waist pattern.

LDS Missionary Stocking

Image
I've designed a custom stocking just for my friend's son who is serving an LDS mission in Houston, TX. I increased the size of the stocking by about 1/3, so my friend will have plenty of room to send goodies to her son. I made the stocking to represent a male missionary and because my friend wanted me to personalize the stocking, I personalized the tie to the state he is serving in (Texas), and embroidered his name on the name tag. I am really excited about the way it turned out! (I blacked out the Elder's name on the tag that's why the tag looks a little messy...)

I'm excited to introduce my original character stocking series...
 Prince Charming  Elsa from Frozen  Anna from Frozen  Wheezy the Penguin from Toy Story also represents my son's favorite operating system Linux  Alice in Wonderland  Belle from Beauty and the Beast Ariel from The Little Mermaid
I started off making these stockings by using Red Heart's free basic stocking pattern which you can find by clicking here. I did change all the double crochet in the pattern to half double crochet for tighter stitches. I did color changes and embellishments according to character. I did not write everything I did down, but wanted to share my work. I used the crocodile stitch on the bottom of the mermaid stocking and it was quite tricky to do because of how I had to assemble it but I think it turned out fantastic! If you have any questions about my work, leave me a comment.
