Make Moccasins out of Sandals – Crochet Pattern

Crafts December 3, 2016

Make Moccasins out of Sandals - Crochet Pattern

What’s cozier than a pair of warm, handcrafted moccasins? Even if you don’t have the multiple tools or skills to make yourself a pair of real leather moccasins, there are ways around that – like these crochet patterns, which require nothing more than yarn, a hook, and scissors.

The patterns are easily tailored to fit any foot size, and only require a larger hook and thicker yarn that suits (The pattern calls for two strands of acrylic DK yarn and a size “I” crochet hook but does walk through what you’ll need to do in order to make sure the moccasins are the right fit).

You can mix and match colors, stick with one or a monochrome scheme, or use a variegated yarn for some interest. You could also included bead work, fringe, or tassels. The instructions for adding fringe are included in the pattern.

You’ll need to know the following stitches: chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), sc (single crochet), single crochet decrease (sc dec) and blo (back loop only).

The pattern includes a photo tutorial as well as written instructions, and is available as a free PDF at Umme Yusuf.

If you’d like a little more of a challenge, you could also try the Tribal Moccasin variation found on Just Be Crafty.

Crochet Jungle Animals

Crafts November 3, 2016

Crochet Jungle Animals

Crocheting stuffed animals is an exciting pass-time with an adorable outcome.

There are thousands upon thousands of unique patterns you can follow to make any stuffed friend you desire. From a fun spin on the classic sock monkey, to several takes on teddy bears and other animals, and even adorable pieces of food complete with smiling faces and huggable arms, there is something for everyone. These projects make for a fun way to decorate your craft room, or a cute homemade gift to make for a special someone.

This post is the first of a three-part series for crochet stuffed animals. Dedicated to jungle animals, here we are going to take a look at four wonderful projects: a hippo, a lion, a monkey and a tiger.

The hippo is a small project that is easy for any skill level. It features one main colour, and a very small amount of a secondary colour (typically black) to create the face details. This project shouldn’t take longer than a day, and is a wonderful place to start when learning to crochet animals.

The lion we’ve chosen is a larger cuddly friend that uses four colours in total. There is a significant amount of detail in the head, so it is a project that is better suited for those with a bit of experience with crocheting. His curly mane and 3D cheeks make him as charming as he is.

A jungle post wouldn’t be complete without a monkey! This pattern has been called “Poncho the Monkey”, and he is a tiny, sweet little monkey pal. This project is also excellent for beginners, and shouldn’t take longer than a day or two to complete. He uses three different colours, and features a fair amount of detail to make him appealing to any recipient.

Another animal that must be included in a jungle post is the tiger! This fancy tiger has one primary colour (orange), and features black stripes, and a white nose. This particular pattern uses doll eyes, but you could always make your own using black yarn. He is a good project for those who have previous experience with crocheting.

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    What is it about capes that makes everything feel more mysterious and magical? I’ve always loved capes, ever since I was a tiny kid growing up in the wild woods of Tennessee.

    If you live anywhere near cold weather, you know the unpleasant feeling of slipping into a cold seat. No matter how many layers you have on, your back gets chilly, your legs get clammy, and your whole body tenses at the cold. Little children may not realize how cold they are, but the rest of […]
