We hope to inspire your creativity with the projects we share here. We are home schoolers and love to be different, learn new things and have fun. We try to be as open minded as possible and when people say you should do something in a certain way, we ask why? Why should we follow suit? We are all unique and process things in different ways, so we should be free to express ourselves in our own way.
Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspiration.
I recently made the Handy Candy-Striped Basket by Emma Friedlander-Collins from Crochet Now magazine. Emma was also the designer of the Pineapple Bath Mat.
This pattern uses the Hooked Ribbon XL yarn, so I used the leftover yarn from the bath mat project (like I said I would). I also used the Lemon Yellow and the Sweet Pink for the main stripes and the Bubblegum for the smaller stripes and the handles. This pattern also works in the round using a magic loop, which is fairly simple when you know how.
I completed this very quickly and any remotely experienced crocheter could do this in an afternoon. It is a very handy basket for odds and ends, yarn, craft supplies or a collection of jars/desk tidies (which is what I did; jar cosy blog post coming soon!). Give this idea a try or (even better) add your own spin on it.
