This octopus is super cute and easy to make. It does take quite a bit of time and the construction of all the pieces is a little tedious but in the end, you get the most adorable little sea creature!

The Mini Sunflower Turtle pattern is an easy pattern to follow that requires very minimal sewing. It is perfect for batch-making for market prep, and is so customizable! You can make these cuties in a variety of color combinations, sizes, and fibers to have a whole collection! If you like sunflowers, turtles, or both, I highly suggest you try out this adorable pattern!
This is a very simple pattern to follow and to stitch up. There’s not any complicated shaping or fancy textures on this, the designer lets the simple stitch provide a gorgeous comfy fit and gives the yarn the chance to show off. This top is also very comfortable, and this stitch has a fun sensory texture that I enjoyed running my fingers across while wearing the top (that’s not too weird to do at your desk at work, right?) I wholeheartedly recommend this pattern.
The idea for crocheting this monkey came to my mind when I decided to surprise my daughter with a one-of-a-kind gift. This fun amigurumi monkey toy is worked in simple single crochets, and there is a video tutorial as well.
The Ollie the Mini Octopus pattern works up super quickly and makes an adorable little, squishy octopus. Made in super chunky yarn, it makes a great little toy or pocket pal, but it can also double as a perfect keychain in any weight yarn. I have a feeling these little guys are going to be a huge hit at my next market, so if you need me in the next week or two, I’ll be making more mini octopi!
Crochet cables give warm and cozy vibes, and make for a really cute sweater wreath that is perfect for Fall and Winter decorating!
This scrunchie was so fast and easy to make! The pattern is well written, and it even includes a link to the video for it. I want to make a bunch in all kinds of colors! I think they would make great little gifts (or stocking stuffers for the upcoming Christmas season!) or even a way to customize matching your hairpieces to an outfit. Scrunchies have definitely made a comeback so don’t fight it and whip up a few of these yourself!
This fun and easy C2C mug rug is great for using scraps of yarn, and the perfect piece to add to your living room, kitchen or dining room to house your favorite coffee and snack. This mug rug also works great as a mini washcloth, and as a doily for plants, candles and so much more! This is a beginner friendly series, and this mug rug is a great project to pair with watching your favorite TV show or movie, especially if you are working on a few for a gift. You don’t even have to count boxes if you don’t want to! You can use a soft tape measure to measure as you go.
I really strongly recommend this pattern and I hope you try it out yourself! It’s simple enough for relative beginners, if you’re willing to try a few times to get sections like the teeth or the toes correct. These can be as simple or as complex as you like, it’s up to your imagination! Give them as gifts, bring them to craft fairs, or just make one for your desk in your favorite colors. I’m so happy I tried it and I want everyone to have one.
This fun mosaic crochet mini stocking is so versatile – hang it from your mantel or staircase in classic stocking form or hang it from your tree as an ornament, use it as a gift card holder or to house silverware on the Christmas table, make a bunch for an advent calendar and so much more!
