Crocheted poufs are one of those things that I really like the finished project, but making them takes WAY longer than I want to spend on something I am going to use to wash the dishes or arm pits. Some even take an enormous amount of yarn and can be tricky to make. After trying a few things, I created this "Twisted Scrubbie" that takes less than an hour and is easy enough for beginners. ...

In January, while grabbing some supplies at Hobby Lobby, I received a text message from a friend that just said "Congratulations"... why? what? I couldn't imagine what it was about. My blog made the top 100 blogs on AllFreeCrochet.com for 2019! THANK YOU for supporting me in all of my craziness! To celebrate I have designed a new beanie pattern (since a beanie pattern of mine is what earned ... [ Read More ]
Last year for Valentine's Day I designed a "Beary Sweet Pouch". I have always thought it would be cute as a hanging hand towel too. I definitely need some color in my life lately as the winter blahs are setting in. Northern Utah is either frozen and covered in snow or mucky mud...it changes daily. Each week this year I am posting a free cloth pattern. I had planned to post them each ... [ Read More ]
I kind of have an addiction to white boards (dry erase boards). I have several throughout the house, including a couple really big ones. After trying a bunch of different erasers and cleaning them often, my husband suggested using an old rag like he uses on his in the garage (yep, even he has one in the garage!). A cloth works great, but where do you store it when you aren't using it? At the ... [ Read More ]
This week's "wash" project has an extra purpose. Yes, it can be a scrubbie or soap saver, but the main reason behind it is to hold a round cold pack. In December our youngest son got the flu really bad and was down for almost two weeks. Several of those days were spent with a high fever so we kept rotating between some small ones we had. He doesn't like them right next to his skin so we usually ... [ Read More ]
A nice pair of squishy soft slippers is probably my favorite thing. I have a couple of pairs friends have made me and I keep them in my nightstand, by my work station and in our trailer. I love making them for gifts and it makes me happy to see my parents wearing their slippers. Last year I made my mom, Nancy, a pair of multi colored slippers. She said they were the best pair I have made her. ... [ Read More ]
This year I am posting a new pattern for a cloth of some kind each week. People have seemed to enjoy our first one of the year, "January Washcloth". This week's scrubbie is very similar, but made with 2 strands held together and a J hook. One end is left open so your hand can slide inside to make scrubbing easier. This pattern is part of a 4 piece set for the month. I hope you enjoy all ... [ Read More ]
I love making washcloths, hanging towels and scrubbies. They are a great project for in the car and waiting rooms. I try to whip up several throughout the year and build a stash for last minute gifts. A few years ago I featured and designed a different cloth or scrubbie each week the entire year. This year, as I gear up to celebrate my fiftieth birthday in May, I thought it would be fun to do ... [ Read More ]
We use rice packs and "hot hands" all winter long. I thought it would be cute to make a wintery snowman cover for a rice pack that could be used hot and cold. Isn't he cute? Hot, Cold or Stuffed This frosty guy is designed to slip over a heat/cold rice pack. He could be stuffed and used for decoration. I love snowmen. I fill my living room with them in December and they stay as long ... [ Read More ]
Gnomes have been one of my mom's favorites since I was little. On vacations to the Oregon Coast she would tell use she could see gnomes in the trees and tell us stories about them. She really made them come to life. Since gnomes are popular lately I thought it would be fun to make one into a luminary cover. It slips over a mason jar and I put a battery operated tea light inside. It could be ... [ Read More ]
