Halloween Crafts!

Free Pattern for spider and basket for candy.

Hello friends!

Halloween is coming up and I wanted to share with you a few things I’ve made in the past.

I love making things for my son’s classmates for their treats bag. Last year I made these mini pumpkins and they were a huge hit! They do take a bit of time, about 30-45 mins depending on how quickly you can hook. But if you start early, it is quite easy! You can find the simple tutorial on my youtube channel.

I did a few projects for our friends at Hobium Yarns for Halloween. I made a lovely treats bag as well as a treats basket for candy. Please click on the links for the pattern for free download!

This year I’ve been trying something new. I am needle felting! I’m making little ghosts to give the kids this year. All the materials can be found on Hobium Yarns as well!

I hope that you have a safe and healthy Halloween season. ❤

Tomato Basket Pattern

Hey friends! I need to get better about blogging but finding it difficult to manage instagram, Facebook, my etsy and love crochet shops while keeping this up too. 🙂 But I promise to check in every now and then.

I have a new pattern ready! It’s a tomato basket made with Lion Brand’s Fast Track Yarn. Using a 9mm hook, this basket works up like a dream! So fast, so lovely, sturdy and can hold your current work in progress, yarns or even toys that your kid needs to tidy up.

I came to this idea when I had a surplus of Fast Track Yarn that my friend gave me for my birthday. I was brainstorming for almost a year before I actually used the yarn. Yep, brainstorming takes forever for me! But then I thought, oh a basket would be nice in our home but red doesn’t fit our blue/grey/cream colour scheme in our home.

So my son had a great idea to make a giant tomato basket. Great idea little O. So I made it and then I made two more. And then, well… I wrote the pattern out and had my wonderful friend test it for me.

If you are wanting to make this and you’re a beginner, don’t worry! It’s very basic stitches. You need to know how to single crochet and the most complicated part are the little vines. But even that, it is just single crochet as well but I have lots of pictures to help you along.

So if you’re interested, feel free to give it a try. It’s only 10HKD (about 1.27 USD) and you might want to make some for your friends too. Your purchase goes to supporting my small business. It’s just me! 🙂
