DROPS Design Free Crochet Slipper Patterns

Source :: DROPS Designs

Several months ago I shared a link to some Free Knit Slipper patterns from DROPS Design on Facebook. The post went viral and I had decided to do a post on our blog to make it easier for our readers to find the patterns. You can find the post for DROPS Design Free Knit Patterns HERE.

Since that time that blog post has become wildly popular. I have received many emails and comments asking if DROPS Designs had any crochet patterns for similar boot style slippers. As it turns out, the answer is a big YES! So, for all of you crocheters that have wanted to be able to crochet the slippers, now you have a collection of awesome free crocheted boot style slipper patterns to choose from. Enjoy!

Wet Felted Colorful Wool Easter Eggs

 

These soft and colorful wet felted eggs make a lovely addition to any spring nature table or Easter display. They look enchanting in Pixie's fairy home and her spring fairy, Ivy, is delighted with the addition.

 

These wet felted Easter eggs are very easy to make with kids. We make these eggs as part of our Spring Bs Homeschool Companion unit. If you would like to make more realistic wet felted wool eggs for your child's toy kitchen or if you would like to make a wet felted wool egg in which you can hide treats check out our previous post on wet felting wool eggs, Felted Eggs Directions.

Materials:

  • Wool Roving in spring colors

Wrap several layers of wool roving around your egg form.

 

Submerge your wool roving...Read more

THE RAINY DAY - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the moldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the moldering past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

Because this poem appears rather bleak and possess a mature vocabulary, there are some that might think it not suitable for children, but I would disagree. It has a wonderful "moral" if you will... "Some days must be dark and dreary". However, Longfellow also points out... "Behind the clouds is the...Read more

How To Use PicMonkey to Help You Choose Yarn Colors

I love shopping online for yarn. The selection is much greater than what I can find in my LYS and I can find much better quality yarn or more artistic yarn than the big craft stores carry. As always, even when you are shopping in person, choosing colors for a project can be tricky. This is actually another benefit, in my opinion, that shopping online offers. I can use free photo editing software to help me choose colors and plan my project. 

Today I'm going to walk you through how I use the free online photo editing program, PicMonkey, to help me choose yarn or fabric colors for a project. In this example I was shopping for three light yarn colors. I wanted all three colors to be of equal weight in the project, with no single color standing out.

In this tutorial I will be specifically talking about how to choose yarn colors for a project when shopping online, but the exact same process can be used to choose fabrics for a quilting or sewing project.

To start this project, go to your favorite online yarn shop. You will want to shop...Read more

Free Knit Patterns for Baby Caps

Links to individual patterns can be found HERE.

I am a fan of baby caps. Whether you live in a frigid climate or go in and out of overly zealous air conditioned buildings, those adorable, but often bald wee heads can chill an otherwise comfortable baby. And, on sunny days, it can protect their scalps from burning. Although here in Michigan and are now flirting with spring, I would still toss a cap on baby's head. Of course, when the weather grows warm, I switch over to light weight caps, but for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere that are entering Autumn, now is the perfect time to make sure you have just the right cap to keep baby comfy.

Here is a collection of FREE knit cap patterns. They all lie close to the head and will keep baby toasty. They range from simple to more complicated stitches. We hope you find one of these FREE knit hat patterns that you will fall in love with!
