Little Girl Dandelion Dress & Hat Set

Welcome to My Crafting Channel

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had thunderstorms on and off and supposed to be the same the next few days.

With my renewed interest in crocheting over the past few months. I knew I needed to set some rules or the yarn would start to build up as the paper and stuff did for the paper crafting. So the main rule is I can't build up a yarn stash. I must find something that will  use up all left over yarn.

I had yarn left over from the afghan I made my sister for her birthday you can see it here.

So this morning I would like to share this cute little girl Dandelion Dress & Hat Set made with that left over yarn.

I saw this cute pattern and knew I had to give it a try. I had never crocheted clothes before, well I did make a baby dress for Pam's new grand baby that is due soon and that dress I will post in a few days.

I remember when Barbi was little she loved to blow on the Dandelion's when they turned white and make wishes.


In the pattern Ruby made her flowers yellow, I changed mine to white.




I think any little girl would look adorable running around in this cutie. It' so soft, made with 100% cotton so it will be cool for this hot summer days.

Silhouette Challenges: Ch# 25 (Anything Goes) "Thinking of You/Friendship Card"

Welcome to my My Crafting Channel


Good morning everyone. Sure hope you all are having warm weather. We have bounced from the 50's all the way up to the 80's the past few weeks then all the sudden last night we went down to 34. Seems we go from heat to air conditioning on a daily basis. Sure wish it would warm up and stay and stay warm.

I can not believe it has been a month since I made a paper craft. Some have messaged me on FB to see what is up with the lack of paper crafts and all the crocheting. Guess some people don't like it when I create anything other than paper crafts. lol

I have really tried to adhere to my News Years resolution and not create anything that did not have a purpose this year. I have boxes and boxes of cards I have made over the past 3 plus years. So card making for me will remain on a no go status unless I need a card and can't find one already made for the event/purpose.

I do have some paper 3D items on my To DO list in the near future as well as many sewing, crocheting an others crafty items. I do appreciate those of you who visit and comments on all my crafts not just the paper ones.

Well let's move on. I did need a card today for a friend that is a little down and I could not find one I liked so I did have to make one. Perfect timing since it is my time to post for this months challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.

I purchased a few new PNC cards from Silhouette in the past few weeks that I really liked and wanted to use one of those for the card. 

I love the flowers and colors on this card. I did print a sentiment on the inside prior to cutting it out. I sure hope this will brighten her day a little.

Baby Security Blanket

Good afternoon. Popping in this afternoon to share a Security Blanket I made.

I used Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. If you have never felt this yarn it is like touching a cloud. It is so thick and soft that even an adult would love a afghan made from it. I finished one a few weeks back for my daughter who is 36 and I know she is going to love it. Will get it posted in a few days.

This for sure would be any child's favorite blanket. I plan to make some in different colors and of course some for boys.. without the ruffle.

The average security measures 17'x17' but I wanted one a little larger so I made this one 28"x 28".

This blanket can be machine washed and tumbled dry which make it perfect for daily use.

Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn, Pitter Patter 300 g (1.25)
Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn, White 3300 g (.25)
