I'm sending the file for these super cute tags to anyone who fills out my survey. It's super easy and quick, and it will help me figure out exactly what I'll be making for you!
So after you've finished up your pieces for The Matilda Tote, and you'd like to add the fabric and stabilizer, you're ready for this tutorial. I also think this post offers some good basic information if you'd like to add some structure/lining to any of your crochet projects!
I am delighted to share with you my latest pattern: The Matilda Tote! It's a lovely structured and cabled bag that is surprisingly simple to make. It consists of three pieces, a front and back panel along with a long piece that wraps around the sides and bottom. I've taken TONS of photos of the process of making this bag in the hopes of you being able to 100% understand how to make this beaut!
I thought it'd make for an interesting post to talk about the reasons why crochet projects get abandoned. Because I'm pretty sure it happens to us all... For me, I can think of multiple reasons why the things I'm working on get abandoned, from realizing the project isn't going to be what I thought in my head to the fact that it's taking too long and isn't season-appropriate. Probably the biggest reason, though, is taking on a big project and not knowing how to manage it in small chunks, then getting overwhelmed and worn out on the mere thought of even doing it!
I am so so so happy to finally get this sweater pattern out in the world! It's the Cross My Heart Sweater that is the cutest little thing, featuring a unique eyelet and i-cord display along the front neckline. My favorite part about this sweater?? The body is worked in ONE PIECE! Gasp!
With the release of the new Cross My Heart Sweater on the horizon, I thought I'd release this little tutorial on how to set eyelets on your crochet projects. The eyelets provide such a cool, industrial feel to the softness of the yarn-- I love how they look together!
I'm happy to bring to you the prettiest little headband pattern today!
It's The Slopes Headband, and it is just so lovely-- with it's texture-y goodness... oh, and buttons. Can't forget about the buttons! They always make things cute.
I thought I'd share today on the blog my favorite way of weaving in ends for my crochet projects. I've used this method since forever, and it's proven to be a fail-proof way of getting those ends hidden, even after multiple washes and wears!
I'm excited to bring this fun hat pattern to the blog today. It's a super comfy slouch hat that features this really unique stitch that includes a tr3tog with a puff stitch around it. I'm not lyin' when I say that this thing is fun to whip up, and the look of this textured stitch is just so good!
I thought it would make a cool little post here on Megmade to feature some amazing companies that are rooted here in U.S. soil. I've been interested, here lately, in becoming more knowledgable about the whereabouts of the things I buy (for multiple reasons). And I believe buying as close to home as possible is almost always for the best. It's an area I'm improving on right now, and I'm nowhere near the perfect shopper, but I thought a cool place to start would be to research some brands that make yarn in America.
