Crochet Gift Card Holders

Leftover yarn is getting more and more popular.  Don't know if others feel the same way but I know I have created so many cute and practical items with my left over yarn.

From small flowers, mini pompoms on paperclips, mini purse charms and the list can go on and on.  I have added something else...gift card holders or caddies/cozy.

So here you will see a few that I have made recently and as always enjoy making them - they are cute and fast to make!

Most of the time for caddies/cozy I prefer to use cotton but here I actually like to use the acrylic yarn. 

As I always say think of the all the endless possibilities you have with leftover yarn...don't give up on those left over pieces that are good for one thing but won't be good enough for another.

Hope you like these that I made and hopefully it will inspire you to make some of your own.

Happy crocheting!!!

Crochet Flower Boomarks

Here I go again...showing more love to my left over yarn. I LOVE IT!

I start of by crochet a small flower and when I get it to the size I want I then continue to crochet a chain to the desired length and then I attach a cute charm or button or just leave it like that.  

I like to keep it all the same color but in some of these I have decide to go out of my comfort zone and use different colors where the flower is one color and the chain tail is another color.

These are great for little gifts to give to your favorite book club group, teachers or party favor.

Again, just another way to use your leftover yarn and some beads or charms just to jazz it up more.

Crochet Baby Booties...

Crochet baby booties are just cute and fun to make.  I started making these when my mom sent me a pair that I asked her to make for me for a friend. 

As always I would find it difficult to make because of how small they were.  But then I gave it a shot and here I have some to show you that I made awhile back.  

I've had some friends that crochet as well say to me to find my niche in crocheting baby items - in other words if I make these and I am better at making newborn/baby booties do those til I am comfortable venturing out to making other sizes.  So guess what?! That's what I do...I am getting better at making baby ones so I won't venture yet to toddler size or bigger (one day I will...and you'll be the first to know about it.

Bottom line to me is that whatever you like and are comfortable making - MAKE IT! Learn from your mistakes on crocheting and keep making and creating things til you get it right.

Have fun crocheting!
