Complete Failure

Hey Divas!

Yesterday, my boyfriend brought to my attention that this year is already a quarter over. Really? Where did the time go? I had so many plans for this year and have barely been able to execute them. But in my defense, I have been caring for a baby that is allergic to just about everything. This has made him extremely cranky. Constant trips to the doctor and a baby that wants to be held ALL THE TIME has left me with very little time to get anything done.

I think the doctor and I have finally found a solution. So now Baby Bear has been calm enough for me to attempt to do some of the stuff I had planned. I have been able to crochet quite a bit but I just have not had the opportunity to post anything. I wanted to release some projects for Easter but that clearly didn't happen. My Etsy Shop has not been touched in forever. Oh well. I guess I still have time to get things done. In the meantime, while I collect myself, here's what I have been working on this year.


















Monster Applique Onesie


Materials:

Artiste #8 Crochet Cotton in black, bright lime, and white
Size F hook
Tapestry needle
Fabric glue OR needle and thread

Eyes (make 2)

Start with magic ring
Rnd 1: ch 1, dc 12 in the ring, tighten ring, slst to 1st dc (12 dc)

Rnd 2: ch 1, dc 2 in each dc around, slst to 1st dc (24 dc)

Rnd 3: ch 1 hdc 1 in each dc around, slst to 1st hdc, fasten off, weave in ends (24 hdc)

Teeth (make 2)

ch 5
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hk and in each remaining chs, ch 1, turn (4 sc)

Row 2: sc2tog (twice), ch 1, turn (2 sc)

Row 3: sc 1 in both sts, ch 1, turn (2 sc)

Row 4: sc2tog, ch 1, fasten off, weave in ends (1 sc)



Mouth:

With black, ch 6, then slst 4 across top of tooth. Ch 4, then slst 4 across 2nd tooth, ch 6. Tie a knot at the end of the ch then cut off excess string on both sides.



Now you can attach the appliques to the onesie by either using fabric glue or needle and thread in matching color. I chose to use fabric glue. I you are going to go this route please take note that a little goes a long way. I also put a piece of cardboard in between the onesie to keep the glue from seeping through to the other side. Let dry according to the glue's instructions. 

All done!

Kids Helping the Homeless

Over the last couple of years I've been finding it harder and harder to get in the Holiday spirit. It has really gotten to the point where I literally hate the holidays. I just feel like it's lost it's true meaning. Now it's all about the holiday sales and deals when it should be about family and giving. 



So to try to give myself some holiday cheer, I've come up with a campaign to get everyone involved including my kids. This year we will be donating blessings bags to the homeless people in our community. We are asking for small donations to help us put these together. Every $3 will provide all the essentials for one bag. So if you would like to help us out visit our GoFundMe Page here. Every dollar helps!
