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.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    by on December 8, 2017 - 0 Comments

    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 […]

    Make a Bird House from PVC

    by on October 1, 2017 - 0 Comments

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
