Make America Gay Again Crochet Flag

Make America Gay Again Crochet Flag Pattern

Did y’all see this tweet showing a “Make America Gay Again” flag in Aspen displayed by Pence’s neighbors while he was vacationing next door? Mike Pence is scheduled to leave today after an Aspen vacation during which neighbors had a message for the vice president. Highway 82 could see some congestion today for Pence’s motorcade. https://t.co/xqegkyKyqx pic.twitter.com/MzPdXqL064 — Aspen Times… Read more →

cheesy yarnbomb

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 - HiJennyBrown.com

“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?

Personalized Ripple Blanket - Hi, Jenny Brown

Personalized Crochet Blanket

When Erin asked for a ripple blanket to match the pillows she made for her living room, I was happy to oblige.  I love the colors in the pillows, and I’m always happy to crochet a ripple blanket – especially one with so much gray.

NJ Makers Day Yarn Bomb

Saturday was our state’s inaugural Maker Day, so of course I had to celebrate by crocheting this NJ Makers Day Yarn Bomb. Some folks thought it should have been hung closer to the playground (so visiting it would coincide with a turn on the swings), but I like it on the chain link fence (over the ugly piece of wood holding that… 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!
