My cheesy yarnbomb

There are yarnbombers who make pretty pieces, those who make political pieces, and those that make just plain crazy pieces… but me – I like mine cheesy. The idea for this cheesy yarnbomb started with a ball of light orange yarn that wasn’t quite right for my project.  For some reason it reminded me of cheese, and I whipped two squares up… Read more →

“Big Boy” Crochet Banner

Lately, our once little William has been insisting that he is a grown up.  He drinks “coffee” (water in a coffee cup). He plays video games (or at least yells at the controller).  He even works from home (by doing little chores).  And although his “grown-up” life is totally full, there’s nothing he’d rather do than ride that big yellow school bus… Read more →

Crochet Baby Photo Prop Banner

As you may have seen in my newsletter or instagram, my sister had twins!  Emma and Owen were a little early, but they started eating and growing and thriving right away. I mean, can you handle the cuteness? Of course, I want to crochet EVERYTHING for them, so I started with personalized Crochet Garlands.  I thought it would make the perfect… Read more →

St. Patrick’s Day: Crochet T-shirt Yarn Koozie

I’ve been looking for a good excuse to give t-shirt yarn a try, and lucky for me, Promo Analyzer sent me a whole box of goodies… …including a t-shirt perfect for cutting up. I used this tutorial by Upcycled Stuff  to cut the shirt, and here’s where I should mention the things I did wrong.  #1. I used a shirt with… Read more →

J Coffee Cup Sleeve - HiJennyBrown

Personalized Crochet Coffee Sleeve

One of the great things about going to Michelle Ward’s Creative Live class (besides eating my weight in vegetarian tacos) was meeting some amazing people, including Jen of Jen & Company. Hi, Jen! Jen asked if I would make her a crochet coffee sleeve and pinned this pattern.  If you watched the class, you know she looks amazing in coral, so… Read more →

Introducing: 2014 Crochet Holiday Postcards

Woo-hoo!  It’s that time of year again – the day I remember (and am constantly reminded) that I’m not getting any younger.  At least they soften the blow with cake. (Little Liam has been talking about “buttercream” all morning – who knew he was a frosting connoisseur?) Won’t you help me take my mind off sinking deep into my late-30s… Read more →

8-20-2014, Hi, Jenny Brown, Ms. Myers Koozie25

Project Idea: Teacher Gift – Crochet Cup Cuff

When I look back on all the hilarious, fun times I had in elementary, middle, and high school, one awesome person comes to mind – my best friend & buddyboy (sorry for the inside joke), Ms. Myers.  She taught me all the important things in life – how great a perm can look, how delicious takeout tacos can be, and how long you can… Read more →

Yo, VIP – Let’s Hook It

I am always amazed at the beautiful hats, blankets, and banners y’all make with my patterns.  It is some seriously cute stuff, and I am so wowed by each of you! But say you’re addicted to putting your crochet outside…  Will they work for that too? YEP! Oh, and by the way: If you weren’t a child of the 90s, or you… Read more →
