Santa Claus Hat Crochet Pattern - Skip To My Lou 1
Hello Everyone! My name is Olivia, and I blog over at Hopeful Honey where I love to share my DIY’s. Come visit me and say hi!
Today I’m so excited to be here with you all, sharing my latest crochet pattern for a Christmas stocking hat with my easy pattern you will have a crochet santa hat!
For those of you that don’t know me, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I LOVE Christmas! And I know that a love of Christmas sounds pretty normal, but I think doing present shopping and wrapping 2 months in advance while listening to Christmas music might be leaning closer to obsession.
Recently I’ve also been creating a lot of festive decorations, such as striped baubles and star ornaments in an attempt to cover our tree with crochet this year!
Have you been crocheting anything Christmas-y lately?

20 Minute Throw Pillows

Made with Moxie: 20 Minute Throw Pillows

How to make 20 Minute Throw Pillows

Supplies:

two (2)  20 inch cloth napkins

one (1) 18 to 20 inch zipper

one (1) 20 inch pillow form

Sewing machine and tools

Made with Moxie: 20 Minute Throw Pillows

Select two cloth napkins of your choice.

Made with Moxie: 20 Minute Throw Pillows

Pin your zipper centered on the edge of one napkin, both right sides up. Top stitch zipper to the cloth napkin.

Made with Moxie: 20 Minute Throw Pillows

Pin the second napkin to the other side of the zipper, right side facing up, and top stitch into place. Make sure the side edges of your napkins are lined up with each other.

Made with Moxie: 20 Minute Throw Pillows

Pin both napkins together, wrong sides facing each other. Do you best to line up each edge and corner. When you use coordinating napkins, as opposed to matching ones, sometimes you have to fudge things around a bit. Stitch around the remaining three edges of your napkin catching each napkin layer.

Unzip your new pillow and stuff in the pillow insert. Toss a few on the couch to add a pop of color to your living room, or put a few on your bed for extra fluff!  These make an easy gift and are a satisfying project to sew up when you have a few minutes to yourself.

Crochet Gingerbread Christmas Stocking

Crochet Gingerbread Christmas Stocking

I crocheted my very first Christmas stocking for myself just last year and wanted to give it a delicious makeover by turning it into a gingerbread stocking! You could whip up a couple of these and throw a stocking-decorating party, using “candy” toppings like sparkle pompoms, big rhinestones, colorful buttons, t-shirt paint, embroidery, or small holiday ornaments!

How to make a Crochet Gingerbread Christmas Stocking

Materials List

  • Crochet Hook, size I/5.5mm
  • Red Heart® Super Saver® in White
  • Red Heart® Super Saver® in Warm Brown
  • scissors or yarn cutter
  • tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • optional: pompoms, rhinestones, buttons, or anything you want to represent colorful candies, plus fabric glue or hot glue to attach them

Gauge

Gauge is not essential in this project, but I would stick with a worsted weight or chunky yarn.

Abbreviations

ch(s) = chain(s)
dc = double crochet
hdc = half double crochet
hdc2tog = half double crochet 2 together
rnd(s) = round(s)
sc = single crochet
sc2tog = single crochet 2 together
sk = skip
sl st = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)
[ ] = repeat what is inside the brackets the number of times indicated

Notes

– You will work Stocking starting with the toe and working upward.

– Except the Heel, you will be joining each round, and also turning after each round. This helps keep the seam in one straight line.

Crochet Gingerbread Christmas Stocking

Stocking Toe – With White, make magic ring, or ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, work 10 hdc into ring. Sl st to 1st hdc to join. (10)

Heel – I kept mine in Warm Brown, but you can work the Heel in White, too.

– To start the heel, turn Stocking Toe, count 10 stitches to the right, and join Warm Brown.

Crochet Gingerbread Christmas Stocking

Row 1: Ch 1, work 1 sc in same stitch, and 1 sc in next 19 sts. Don’t join rnds in the Heel. (20)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc2tog, 1 sc in next 16 sts, sc2tog. (18)

Crochet Gingerbread Christmas Stocking

Top of Stocking

- Re-join Warm Brown in 3rd st of Row 9. You will now continue to work around the whole stocking.

Crochet Gingerbread Christmas Stocking

Rnd 20: Ch 2, hdc2tog into the last 2 sts of Row 9. Then work hdc evenly down the sides of Rows 1-9 of the Heel or 1 hdc for each row (9). Work hdc evenly into the next 24 sts of Rnd 19, then work 9 hdc evenly up the other sides of Rows 1-9 of the Heel. Hdc2tog in the first 2 sts of Row 9. Sl st to 1st st to join. (44)

Holiday Bake Craft Sew and Crochet Tutorials

 Zippered Pouch Pattern

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Hi, there, fellow sewing enthusiasts! This is Bonnie from Sew Fishsticks and Fishsticks Designs. I’m so excited to be back here again to share a new sewing tutorial! I’ve been sharing some ideas on my blog recently for ways that you can combine a quick handmade project with a small store-bought item to put together a thoughtful gift that will be appreciated by the receiver. This little bag goes right along with that theme. Stitch up a Jungle Jalopy Zippered Bag, add a package of toy animals, and you’ll make any little one happy!

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch

Supplies for a zippered pouch pattern

2 fat quarters (one each for inner and outer top)
Scraps for the outer bottom and windows
1/4 yard lightweight fusible interfacing
Steam a Seam or another fusible web
One 9″ or longer all-purpose zipper

How to make a zippered pouch

Print the zippered pouch pattern pieces found here: The Jungle Jalopy Zippered Bag. (Be sure to print “actual size” and check the measurement of the 2 1/2″ square.) Cut out two of each pattern piece. Be sure to cut one, then cut the second reversed. You’ll also need a 9″ or longer all-purpose zipper. The included seam allowance is 1/4″.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Sew the bottom panels to the top outer pieces. Press the seam allowance open.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Iron the windows to each side using fusible web. I used Steam a Seam 2.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Once the windows are ironed on, topstitch around each side about 1/8″ from the edges. Iron the finished front pieces to lightweight fusible interfacing.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
To prepare the zipper, place the top edge of the zipper right side down on the shorter zipper tab so that the right sides are facing.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Pin in place and stitch across several times about 1/8″ beyond the metal zipper stop.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Trim the seam allowance to 1/4″. Fold the fabric out at that end of the zipper and lay it out flat with the top facing you. Trim the tab to 1 1/2″ in length. Measure 8” from the seam and trim zipper at that point.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Line your second zipper tab up at the cut point with right sides facing. Sew across, back- and forward-stitching a few times to secure the end of the zipper. Fold the fabric out away from the zipper.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Place the outer piece that faces to the right (the one shown in the photo) in front of you with the right side facing up. Place the zipper right side down along the top edge of the outer piece with the zipper stop facing the front of the jalopy. Line up the raw edge of the zipper 1/2″ from the center of the curve.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Place the matching inner right side down on top of the zipper and outer piece, sandwiching the zipper between. Line up the raw edges and begin pinning along the top edge.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Clip the edge of the zipper when you get to the curve.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Continue pinning the pieces together.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Using your machine’s zipper foot, sew the zipper in using a 1/4” seam allowance. Be careful not to get too close to the zipper. (For the easiest installation, position the zipper pull about halfway down the top edge. Sew to just before the pull, backstitch, remove the fabric from the machine, then pull the zipper pull past where you’ve already sewn. Backstitch across where you stopped stitching and stitch all the way to the end.)

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Turn these pieces right side out so that the wrong sides are together.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Topstitch 1/8″ from the edge of the zipper. (It’s tempting here to wait until the other side of the zipper is attached so that you don’t have to switch out the foot so many times, but topstitching this side is much easier before the other side is attached.) It’s a little tricky topstitching around the curve. Go slowly.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Place the remaining outer piece in front of you with the right side facing up. Flip the zipper and first two pieces over, and place the free side of the zipper right side down on the second outer piece. Line the zipper up at the same point that you did for the first side.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Place the remaining inner piece right side down on top of the zipper and outer piece, sandwiching the zipper between. Pin in place following the same steps you used for the other side of the zipper. Sew in the second side of the zipper.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Flip the pieces right side out.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Pull the front and back pieces away from each other, and topstitch the second side of the zipper 1/8″ from the seam.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Open the zipper before moving on to the next step.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Flip the pieces around so that the outer pieces and the inner pieces are right sides together.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Pin all the way around.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
At the end of each zipper tab, fold the center towards the inner pieces, as shown, and pin in place.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Stitch all the way around 1/4″ from the raw edges. Leave a 4″ opening in the stitching on the bottom edge of the inner pieces. Be careful to go around the curves neatly.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Trim the corners, clip the curves and turn through the opening, then through the zipper. Push the curves and corners out neatly. Press, but be careful to keep the iron away from the plastic teeth of the zipper.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Pull the inner out through the zipper. Pin the opening and topstitch it closed. Push the inner back down inside the outer.

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
And you’re all done!

Jungle Jalopy Zippered Pouch
Fill it up with fun toys and give it to someone you love!

Tassel Infinity Scarf

Tassel Infinity Scarf DIYHello all! My name is Caroline Hulse and I am the blogger behind SewCaroline.com.

I’ve recently become slightly obsessed with tassels, so I thought: “why not put them on an infinity scarf?!” SO, here is a quick and easy tutorial on how to create a Tassel Infinity Scarf- a QUICK and EASY wearable to gift or keep for yourself!

How to make a Tassel Infinity Scarf

Supplies you’ll need:

-3/4 yards of white interlock knit fabric for the infinity scarf. The more fabric you use the “fluffier” your scarf will be.

-YARN! Many colors, one color, thin, thick.. all up to you!

-Sewing machine + standard sewing tools

First, cut your yarn. For a thicker yard (shown) you’ll want about 5 cuts of 8″ each + one cut of 4″. (For a fuller tassel, increase the number of longer strips you cut). You’ll need as many of these sets as you want tassels. I used 8 tassels.

Tassel Infinity Scarf DIYNext, to make the tassels you simply grab your five longer strips of yard in the center, and fold them in half. Then, tie the smaller strip of yard around the folded edge of the yarns about 1/2″ from the fold. Trim the tails of the tied strip of yarn. Repeat this step for all the tassels you wish to create.

Tassel Infinity Scarf DIYNext you’ll take your fabric and cut a rectangle that measures 30″ x 42″ (for a longer or thicker scarf, add length or width to your fabric). Lay it right side up and along the longer side and evenly distribute your tassels. Fold the opposite long side of the scarf on top of the tassels so the right sides are facing, pin in place, and sew at 3/8″ using a zig zag stitch.

assemblethescarfNext, you’ll take one open end of the tube and fold the raw edges under. Place the other end of the tube inside this one, overlapping by about 1/2″ and top stitch. You’re finished!

DIY Ruffled Leg Warmers

DIY Ruffled Leg Warmers

Hi, I’m Terra, and you can usually find me over at mama says sew. Today I’m going to share a tutorial for these cute DIY ruffled leg warmers for a baby. They are pretty easy to sew and you don’t even need a serger. I did the contrast stitching with the rolled hem foot on a regular sewing machine.

How to make DIY ruffled Leg warmers

I paired them with this felt flower headband. You can find the tutorial for it here.

DIY Boutique Style Ruffled Leg Warmers

They can be worn with a bodysuit, like I have them here. Or they would be great with a skirt or dress or over tights or leggings to keep those little legs warm during the cold winter months.

 Baby gift idea ruffled leg warmers

And here are some cute little baby toes peeking out from under the ruffles.

ruffled leg warmers tutorial for baby

 Supplies for  DIY Ruffled Leg Warmers

To make these, all you need is:

Knit fabric (scraps from another project should be enough-I used leftovers from this project)

Contrasting thread for the ruffles

Coordinating thread

You want the knit to have at least 50 percent stretch and have a good stretch recovery (meaning it will regain it’s original shape after being stretched). Make sure you use a stitch that stretches when you sew.

The measurments are for my baby, who is in 0-3 months size. Since baby legs are all different, I would recommend cutting out a top cuff and sewing it into a circle and trying it on your baby’s leg to ensure a perfect fit.

supplies for ruffled leg warmers

How to make DIY Ruffled Leg Warmers

First, cut out your pieces. You need:

2 legwarmers: 6 x 8.5 inches

4 ruffles: 2 x 12 inches

2 top cuffs: 6 x 3 inches

2 bottom cuffs: 5 x 3 inches

ruffled leg warmer tutorial (rolled hem)

Use a serger or rolled hem foot to sew a contrasting rolled hem on each side of all the ruffle pieces. You can also use a zig zag stitch.

how to sew ruffled leg warmers

Gather your ruffles to the width of the leg warmer and stitch them to the bottom of each leg warmer. Make sure to leave enough room for the seam allowance to attach the bottom cuff.

This is what they should look like from the back.

fancy ruffled leg warmers tutorial

Fold the leg warmers right sides together and stitch up the long side, making sure to keep the ruffles out of the bottom seam allowance (again, so you can attach the cuff).

DIY boutique style ruffled leg warmers

Trim off any ruffles sticking into the seam allowance.

DIY boutique style ruffled leg warmers

Sew the top cuff into a tube.

DIY boutique style ruffled leg warmers

Fold it so that the seam allowance is on the inside.

Line up the raw edges and sew the cuff to the top of the ruffled leg warmer.

Turn the cuff up and this is what the top of the ruffled leg warmer should look like.

Repeat with the bottom cuff, making sure the ruffles are out of the way so that you don’t accidentally catch them in your seam allowance.

And that’s it! You now have a cute pair of boutique ruffled leg warmers for your favorite baby girl (or boy-just leave off the ruffles)!

Holiday Bake Craft Sew and Crochet

First off I want to say Thank You to Cindy for inviting me to participate in the Bake Craft Sew and Crochet Along on her blog.  Today I am sharing an easy crochet cowl pattern that works up quickly in a worsted weight yarn.  I made mine in red and white sparkle yarn so I named it Candy Cane Ripple.  You can choose any two colors of yarn – team colors would also be great for this project.

 Candy Cane Ripple Crochet Cowl

 How to make a Candy Cane Ripple Crochet Cowl

Candy Cane Ripple Cowl

Skill Level:  Easy – Advanced Beginner

Hook Size:  US J or 6mm

Yarn:  Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn    2 different colors or 250 yds of 2 colors of worsted weight yarn #4

Measures:   approx. 55 in. around, 8 in. wide

To begin chain 234 (multiple of 18) with color 1

Foundation Row:  3 dc in 5th ch from hook, skip next 2 ch, 3 dc in next ch, skip next 2 ch, *[3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next ch (top point), [skip next 2 ch, 3 dc in next ch] twice**, skip next 5 ch, (bottom point), [3 dc in next ch, skip next 2 ch] twice, rep from * across, ending last rep at **, 1 dc in last ch, turn.

Row 1:  Ch 4, [3 dc between next two 3-dc groups] twice, *[3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next ch-3 space (top point), [3 dc between the next two 3-dc groups] twice**, skip space between the next two 3-dc groups] (bottom point), [3 dc between next two groups] twice, rep from * across, ending last rep at **, skip next 3 dc, 1 dc in top of turning ch, turn, draw color 2 through last loop, drop color 1.

dc between next two 3 dc groups

Rep Row 1, working in the color sequence of 2 rows color 1, 2 rows color 2 carrying the yarn along the one edge – do not cut.  After you have completed a total of 6 stripes of color or 3 sets of each color you will then join the ends of the cowl together with a slip stitch to form a circle or tube or you can leave a long tail of yarn when you fasten off and sew the ends together with this end – be careful to keep the yarn that is carried on the edge enclosed in the seam so it doesn’t show on the right side.  The stitch pattern is reversible and looks the same on either side but you will have one side as a right side and one as a wrong side after sewing the ends together.  Note:  if you choose to crochet the ends together with a slip stitch the seam is a little bulkier – I sewed mine together.

Abbreviations:    approx – approximately        ch – chain       dc – double crochet           rep – repeat

This cowl is a lot of fun to crochet and the pattern is very simple to follow once you establish your foundation row.   The cowl can be worn long or doubled for warmth.   I hope you enjoy the pattern.
