Crocheted Blankets : Granny Square

I like crocheting granny squares but you have a lot of ends to weave in. It takes a lot of time to finish the product. I made a couple blankets by attaching all my squares together and a couple blankets that are a single large square. Both are fun in their own way.

Here’s a couple photos of some recent work:

You can create several different looks by deciding how many colors of yarn to use. I am currently working on a large granny square blanket done with one color of yarn.

It’s a good way to use up some leftover yarn around the house too.

Chain Of Thanks


I found a very beautiful free printable online to make a Chain of Thanks. It’s wonderful to list all the things you and your friends and family are thankful for 😀

One idea is to add a new link every Thursday in November: Thankful Thursdays

Owl Print – Bench Pillows

I purchased 2 pillow inserts from Hancock Fabrics and also bought this Owl print fabric to make covers. I bought sew on Velcro from Walmart. Each pillow has one side that is Velcro so I can remove the covers to wash them or if I want to make new covers and use the same pillow inserts.

I attached brown ribbon so I can tie the pillows to my entry way bench so they don’t fall on the floor and get dirty.

White, Blue and Green PomPoms

I made these cool pompoms as décor for a baby shower. I made a few all white pompoms too but didn’t get a photo of them unfortunately. They were fun to make, my littlest niece even helped me make the white ones. I used several sheets of tissue paper and ribbon. I found white tissue paper at the dollar store which was perfect! But was only able to find blue and green at Target which costs a little more. And the white from the Dollar Tree was larger than the colored sheets from Target so I had to cut them all to the same size. Each pompom is about 18-20 sheets of tissue paper.

Some of the pompoms we hung from umbrellas over the tables. Some we pinned up against the deck railings. We pinned them flat against the deck railings so they looked like flowers.

I will be making more of these tissue paper pompoms! They look cool, they’re inexpensive, and they’re fast to make. I think they would make cute bedroom décor for the kids’ rooms.

Cute As A Button

I am co hosting a baby shower in June so today I dug through my craft room to see what materials I could find. They are expecting a boy so I found fabric, buttons and ribbons that are brown, green, and blue.

I made a couple things that we can use as décor at the party. The puppets are hanging on the fabric covered cork board with clothespins, so they come off and can be kept by the mother and father for the baby 🙂

The cups are going to hold plastic utensils.

Wall Decor

Each foam square measures 12×12

I covered them with scrapbook paper first, then collaged.

I used twine across the back to hang them on the wall.
