Stingray Purse or Pal

After making the Pocket Full of Sunshine and the Pocket Full of Rainbows purses, my daughter (who quickly took them over) requested a Stingray purse. Immediately I thought, "That's a fun idea!"

Pocket Full of Rainbows

I love tiny purses! They are so fun and show so much personality! And the creation of the "Pocket Full of Sunshine" bag sparked some ideas, so now we have the "Pocket Full of Rainbows"!

Pocket Full of Sunshine

Crochet Toy Drive - Bruno the Bear

Today is the first day of the Toy Drive. This is the FOURTH event of the Crochet Charity Drive. How exciting is that?!

12 designers have come together to bring you 15 brand new patterns, so you can make them and donate them to give someone a little handmade love and comfort!


In the Fall of 2015, I started a Crochet Mitten Drive where 15 designers came together to make 15 brand new patterns, so that we could donate mittens to those in need. It went very well and this made me want to do more! So, here we are, starting our fourth event!

I'm thrilled to present the first toy pattern in this Crochet Charity Drive event! At the end of this pattern you will find a list of the other bloggers and when you can get their pattern.

If you're finding this pattern outside of the event, but would like to join in on the fun, click HERE!

Kitty Cat Hat

About a month ago, I came across a post asking for donations for pink "cat" hats. The movement started out as a knitting project, so I had it in my mind that it would be nice to design a crochet version.
