Theme for this week: Going Buggy
FREE for this month only
“Bumble Bug Set” is one of my favorites when I need a quick gift. These have been made for birthday party treat bags, teacher gifts, just about everything you can imagine.
I love ladybugs. The red and black are so fun together and I usually add a little daisy for more color. I also live in “The Beehive State” of Utah, and our local high school mascot is a bee so I make a lot of them.
Today’s featured crochet for kids is this pattern for Hair Spirals by Danyel Pink Designs. Similar to our “Wiggly Giggly Bugs” this would be a cute bookmark or package tie too.More easy things to try:
|Join our fun challenge each week. This week we are making “Wiggly Giggly Bugs” and BUG BLASTING! You will need yarn in your favorite color and any size crochet hook (size I or larger will be best).

|Oh my goodness, look at this Buggy Brunch Donna at “You Drive Me Crafty” made especially for our summer camp!!|

Crocheting For Dogs Is Fun
There are a lot of great crochet patterns for our pets too. It is important to make sure the things we make for our furry friends is also safe. Sara from Posh Pooch Designs Dog Clothes offers some tips.
