Elderberry Pixie Belt & Sale

Hi friends! In addition to working diligently on the Elf Coat patterns, I've been having fun doing some experimentation in one of my favorite project categories, the upcycled crochet pixie belt. If you don't already know, you can get a ton of info on how to create original, freeform pixie pocket belts from my blog... Continue Reading →

Winter Project Updates

Hi there! It's not necessarily been crickets around here, but I do feel its time for some project updates of things I've recently completed. I haven't had a whole lot of new things to show in the crochet category since many of the things I've had on the hook have been larger, longer projects that... Continue Reading →

Hairpin Lace Refashion

When it comes to hobbies, I push myself to try new things. I'm not sure if this is due to my hyperactive Pinterest-ing disorder, an excess of caffeine, or possibly some sort of mania. Fast forward to the point: something I've been experimenting with recently is hairpin lace. Hairpin lace is a technique that wraps... Continue Reading →

Which I did, and actually I did twice, which is why this post... Continue Reading →

T-Shirt Rug Tutorial

Here's another project that fits firmly into the "tired of staring at it because it's been sitting on my desk for over a year so I might as well finish it" category! There's no real reason that it took me so long to finish, other than I got continuously distracted by other projects and lost... Continue Reading →

Tights to Top Refashion

Refashionistas... we've all seen it. That tutorial about how cutting the crotch out of your old tights makes a killer long-sleeve crop top. But does this really work? It can't be that easy, can it? Well, yes. It can. Almost. I have my victim lined up - an awesome print on a warm knit pair... Continue Reading →

Bindu Recycled Sweater Bikini

Inspiration for this free bikini halter top pattern came from my love of henna designs, the thick lotus-petal shaped motifs, linework and dot borders. Made from recycled cotton yarn, this pom-pom fringed top is earth friendly and perfect for dance class, unique festival wear, or your next beach adventure!
