Flower Hats.


Today my friend Maria, co-creator of R.I.P. Clothing, came over.  We decided to have a crafting day.  We were gonna break out the sewing machines and kick it old skool.  Turns out my sewing machine doesn’t work. Dumb.  Instead I taught Maria how to crochet!  We made hats, which is how I learned to read a crochet pattern, and how to make anything useful.  We used this pattern.

Yeah, we cute.

Needless to say, I think Maria picked it up really fast and did a great job! 🙂 She seems excited to have another crochet day soon!

Note: Sweet, talking Shaun of the Dead figure in the back.  How’s that for a slice of fried gold?


Draw String Bag.


A week ago or so I decided I needed a little draw string bag to throw in my purse to carry my phone charger and some ear phones for work. I hunted and hunted and found a pattern I really liked: Work Your Way Up String Bag. I discovered it was way too big for what I needed but I liked the pattern and stuck with it anyway. Unfortunately I ran out of the main color yarn I was using (I swear, it looked like I had more than there was!) so I cut it short and now I used it to store all my trading card games (remember: I am a nerd) for transporting to friends’ houses! 🙂

Mary Jane Slippers.


Hello all! I’m back with some of my own crochet again! 🙂 It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been busy working on larger projects. I did, however, take a break recently to make myself a cute pair of mary jane slippers using scrap yarn.

I didn’t have any buttons, so temporarily they are being held closed with a bow made from cotton yarn. They’re bright, fun, and a quick crochet!
