Easter Trees

πŸŒ²πŸ‡πŸ° Easter Trees πŸ°πŸ‡πŸŒ² 


Making Christmas tree skirts year round, I will sometimes still have the Christmas tree up even until after Easter. So what better way to have it blend in than to make it an Easter tree!


The kids and me had made several different crafty Easter trees through the years, and I thought, why not deck out the Christmas tree for Easter?  I think it looks cute with all the eggs. You could even add more decorations to make it even more festive!

These two trees are great for toddlers. You can draw egg shapes on cardboard and have the children paint them, then cut out the eggs, trace their arm on brown construction paper and glue the trunk and eggs on paper. Super easy and fun!
Or hand trees are always fun for the kids. Then the children used stickers to decorate.

Tiny Crochet Easter Baskets

   πŸ°πŸ€πŸŒΌπŸŒΈHappy Easter🌸🌼🐀🐰

Usually I make these in neutral colors for e.o.s. holders, but they are also great as tiny Easter baskets! Done with this colorful multicolor cotton yarn, they're so festive. 


The kids use their lip balm all the time, and loved having a case to carry it around with them. As well as being the perfect size for this bunny and Yoshi to have their own Easter basket and new e.o.s. for Easter πŸ˜ƒ πŸ‡.

Pattern coming soon. Please, contact me if interested.

As always if you would like one made for you, you may visit my Etsy shop and make a request for a custom order.

Happy Easter!

Cute crochet gift or product tag embellishments.


Whether you are in need of a product tag or gift tags, these can be a nice quick and easy addition to your crochet items. Personally, I like handmade items to have handmade tags and this is a fun and interesting way to add that personal touch.


 Selling ponchos one spring, I got the idea to put the flowers on a tag and give them with the poncho. You could detach the flower and add it to the poncho if you liked. Just a little added something.


You can get dozens of the tags at the dollar store, or have them printed up for you. Then crochet something small to suit your theme. Like holly berries for Christmas tags.


I have even used them as business cards on occasion.


Any small crochet item that looks good alone would work for this. 
Be sure to round any sharp edges on the tags, as to not snag the crochet.

Russian Diagram Pattern

Russian Diagram Pattern 

〜〜〜

This was made from an intricate Russian diagram. I seem to recall that it was in Мод around 2010.

This was my first graph pattern to read and make. With minimal translation help from my hubby, who does not speak 'crochet', this ended up being a great starter pattern for me to jump right into reading graphs! If you are intimidated by graphs, they really are easier than you might think to read and actually kind of fun.


This was in 2010 and I really liked the Caron Simply Soft yarn back then. But the Simply Soft was a bit too large of a weight for this and I should have used a lighter weight thread, because it turned out better as a skirt, due to how large a shawl it is on me.


While I was creating this, I started looking for the pattern to give credit to the designer, when I stumbled upon some interesting history instead.  Searching around, I ended up back on Ravelry, and it appears that in 2009 people were taking noticing of this shawl pattern.  Looks like a lot of other people also wanted a translation for this beautiful graph. Turns out that it was published in MOD, a Russian crochet magazine. One lady, Copper Scale Dragon, did her research on the pattern and found that it originated back in the 80's as a doily pattern in a Japanese book of doilies, Fine Crochet Lace, Doily #13 pattern by Mayumi Sato. Later to find its way to Russia and turned into a shawl. She credits this Cape Shawl pattern to Olga Litvina. You can read Copper Scale Dragon's post on Ravelry, from 2009. Many others talk about it as well. There are over 164 projects finished on Ravelry for this Cape Shawl. But, sorry, sadly, the publication is out of print and I have not had any luck finding the pattern. Hope you at least find inspiration for giving graphs a try.
