A couple months ago my friend Danielle showed me some fabulous products made by the Thirty-One company. One of my favorites is this Zip Top Utility Tote! It is absolutely PERFECT for all of my yarn and crochet tools. I usually keep around 6 balls of yarn and at least one or two WIPs (Works In Progress) in there at a time.

Pull a strand through each one for tangle free yarn! I literally carry this bag around the house with me so I can work on my crochet whenever I get a free moment. Of course it's also great for taking your crochet on the go!

Round 14: SC Decrease until closed.
Be sure to sew on buttons and line of black yarn between the button eyes after round 13. Then stuff with polyfil and continue to round 14.
Fasten off leaving long tail.

To make bigger head and arms use a larger hook and/or thicker yarn. For the head pattern, you can also increase one more time after Round 2... So Round 3 would look like this: 2 SC in first, SC in next, repeat around, join, chain 1 (30 SC).

Sew head onto top of hat. I stitched it on twice for extra support.


Baymax Arms: make 2
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 10 SC in ring, join, chain 1

Round 12: SC Decrease, SC in next 2, repeat around, join, chain 1
Round 13-18: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1
Round 19: SC Decrease, SC in next, repeat around, join, chain 1
Round 20-24: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1
Fasten off leaving long tail.

Stuff lightly with polyfil and sew top of the arms closed.

To make arms longer, feel free to add on rounds during the repeat rows (3-4, 6-8, 10-11, 13-18, or at the end).  To make arms shorter, take off rows during the repeating rows or at the end.
The arms should hang over the bottom of the hat.

Sew arms onto the hat about 3 rows down from the top on each side (the side is where the hat creases when laid flat).  Then carry the tapestry needle down through the middle back of the arm, sewing it down to the had in a couple places. When you get to the bottom, stitch the edge of hat onto the bottom of the arms.

Crochet Chunky Baby Chick Hat



Spring is around the corner and so is Easter which makes it a perfect time to make this chunky baby chick hat! The super bulky yarn and large crochet hook makes it a quick crochet project.


Materials:
- Chunky or Bulky yarn. I used Loops & Threads Zoomba Super Bulky yarn in Lightening yellow.
- Size I/9. I actually used a size K hook in the one pictured because that is all I could find at the moment the inspiration for this hat hit ;) But I recommend using an I/9 for a tighter stitch and more exact sizes.
- Worsted weight yarn in orange and white.
- Size G hook for the eyes/beak.
- 2 small black buttons
- Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
Magic Ring tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet

Note: When beginning your hat, try to leave a long strand hanging from your magic ring. You will use this to create the little looped "feathers" on the top of the hat later on in the tutorial.

Round 3: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around, join (18 SC)
I actually made an extra 2 SC in the last stitch of round 3 just to give the eye a slightly more oval look. Not a big difference but just wanted to throw out that option.
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto hat.

Beak:
With G hook and orange worsted weight yarn...
Chain 4, SC in second chain from hook, HDC in next, DC in next, continue to SC around all edges making a SC + chain 1 + SC in the 3 corners. Fasten off leaving long tail.

Wings (make 2):
With K hook and super bulky yarn
Chain 8, HDC in third chain from hook, DC in next, DC in next, TC in next, skip next stitch and join to last with a slip stitch. Continue to SC around back of wing and other side of chain except when you come to the end of chain, make 2 slip stitches. Fasten off leaving long tail. Sew onto sides of hat.


When weaving in the end from your magic ring (beginning of the hat), loop it through the top 3 times. Just like you would weave in an end, but leave it in a loose loop instead of pulling it tightly through. THEN after you have made the loops, make sure the loose end is securely woven in and fastened off. This creates the little "feathers" on the top of the baby chicks head.


Sew embellishments on hat. The eyes should be touching and the top corners of the beak should be sewn over the edge of the eyes.


The wings only need to be attached at the top. Leave the bottoms flapping out a little.


Cheep, Peep, Chirp!


Update 2/28/2015

This baby chick can easily be turned into a duckling by crocheting a slightly different beak! Below is the pattern for the duck beak and of course you can always make embellishments bigger by using a larger hook and/or thicker yarn.



Crochet Duck Beak Pattern:
With orange yarn...
Chain 11, starting in 2nd chain from hook, SC Decrease across first two, SC in next 2, 2 SC in next 2, SC in next 2, SC Decrease over last two, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC in first 2, HDC in next, DC, 2 DC in next two, DC, HDC, SC, SC + chain 1 + SC in last, continue to SC along sides and bottom and join with slip stitch in to first SC.
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto hat.
Stitch on two nostrils with black yarn.


Small part of beak:
With orange yarn...
Chain 5, SC in second chain from hook, HDC Decrease over next two, SC in last.
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew on to hat (under larger part of beak)

Painted Wooden Owl Bowls


I was reorganizing my craft closet and came across these cute little wooden bowls that I got years ago from Snuggly Monkey on Etsy. They are the perfect size to hold stitch markers, small buttons, and other little craft necessities. After a quick paint job - owls of course -  I put one on my bedside table and two on my desk. You can find the same bowls HERE or the Amazon link below. Michaels and Jo-Anns both have wooden craft sections that I'm sure would have something similar as well. Please note that finished bowls are not dishwasher safe nor are they safe for eating out of.

Materials:
- Small unfinished wooden bowls (links above)
- Acrylic paint or paint pens and paint brush
- Sharpie marker
- Triple Thick Gloss Glaze or Mod Podge



First paint your base coat color onto the bowls and let dry.


Then paint on two circles for the eyes, a little orange triangle nose and the wings. I actually used a chalkboard paint marker for the eyes.


When paint is dry, trace around edges with your black sharpie marker. Fell free to give it different expressions and don't forget the eye balls!


Finish by using a coat of Triple Thick Glass Glaze. I love this stuff! You may recognize it from my nesting doll projects (SESAME STREET, DISNEY, WINNIE THE POOH). It glides on easily and doesn't leave paint brush streaks. You could also use mod podge if that's what you have on hand :)


Whooo has the cutest owl bowls?! We do! 



Not in the mood to DIY? Why not treat yourself to these adorable FOOD SAFE owl bowls!

Crochet Race Car "Playnket" (Play Mat and Blanket)


I know a little boy who isn't feeling so well and is in need of some cheering up this week. That is when the idea of the "Playnket" hit me! It's a crochet play mat and lovey blanket all in one! Snuggle with it or lay it flat on the floor and race the cars on the track. Perfect for sick days on the couch but also a soft activity toy that is a great size to take on the go! Of course you could alway double, triple, or quadruple the pattern to make an even larger blanket. The one I made measures about 23 inches long by 19 inches wide. The small size works up extremely quickly making it an easy gift idea. I've already decided that this will be the first of many "playnket" designs so stay tuned!

Materials:
- Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Lime, Mustard, Charcoal Grey, and Silver Grey.
I used 2 skeins of Lime, 1 skein of Charcoal Grey and less than a half skein of Mustard and Silver.
The cars are made using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Scarlet, Colonial Blue, and Mustard.
- Size I (5.5mm) crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- Poly-fil stuffing (for cars)
- Large black buttons (for cars)

Abbreviations:
SC = Single Crochet
Ch = Chain

Note about pattern: The pattern is very simple! SC + chain 1, skip a stitch, SC + chain 1, repeat. But here is the catch... You need to make sure you start and end each row with a SC stitch. On the odd number rows, this happens naturally. You will see that you SC + chain 1, skip a stitch and then you are able to end with a SC in the last stitch. BUT in the even number rows (starting with row 2), you will notice you have one extra stitch left on the end and so you will end up with two single crochets next to each other.

Same goes for the beginning of the rows. The odd number rows you can begin as usual (SC + chain 1, skip a stitch, SC in next space)... but on the even number rows you need to make a SC in the first stitch and then begin your SC + chain, skip a stitch, SC in next space)

Don't let this confuse you. You will see this happen naturally when you begin the pattern.

I really love this stitch. It looks the same from the front and back gives a great texture. It's the same stitch I used in my Crochet "I love You" Blanket.

Race Track Blanket
with green yarn...
Chain 70, SC in second chain from hook, chain 1, skip a chain, SC in next, repeat down chain, chain 1 , turn
Row 2: SC in first, SC in chain space + chain 1, skip a stitch, SC + chain 1 in next chain space, repeat until end, SC in last, chain 1, turn
Row 3: SC + chain 1 in first, skip stitch, SC + chain 1 in next chain space, repeat, chain 1, turn
Row 4-14: repeat rows 2-3 (alternating).. remember it's the same pattern, you just need to start and end with an "extra" SC on the even rows.
change to dark gray yarn
Row 15-18: continue repeating pattern where you left off
change to yellow yarn
Row 19: continue repeating pattern where you left off
change to dark gray yarn
Row 19-22: continue repeating pattern where you left off

Repeat entire pattern until you have 3 race tracks and 4 patches of green. Each block of green is 14 rows. Each race track has 4 rows of gray + one row of yellow + 4 rows of gray.

Of course you can make to the blanket as long and wide as you'd like! When you are finished, fasten off and weave in ends before starting on border.


Border: Starting at any point on the blankets edge, attach light gray yarn and use the same pattern on the border as you did in the blanket: SC + chain 1, skip a stitch, SC all the way around. On the first round of the border make 2 SC + Chain 1 the corners. Make 3 rounds of the border before fastening off and weaving in ends.



Crochet Cars: I made the cars by using a size G hook and following THIS TINY CROCHET CARS PATTERN by the talented Dedri of Look What I Made. I love her version of these cute little cars, but in order to simplify it, I stopped after round 11 of her pattern and began making SC Decreases until closed. The remaining rounds will look like this:
Round 12: SC Decrease, SC in next 3, repeat around
Round 13: SC Decrease, SC in next 2, repeat around
Round 14: SC Decrease, SC in next, repeat around
Round 15: SC Decrease until closed.
Be sure to stuff the car and weave in ends before sewing shut!!



VROOM VROOM!

Crock Pot Sriracha Chicken


Sriracha sauce has become a staple in most homes, including ours! I swear my husband puts it on everything. Even if you don't like a lot of spice in your food, don't worry. The Sriracha sauce has such a great flavor that it really takes this chicken to the next level without overpowering it or burning your tongue. Plus if you really need to, you can easily dull the spice by adding mayo or greek yogurt before eating.

Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup Sriracha Sauce
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 lime
- 2lbs chicken breasts

Directions:
1. Cut up chicken breasts into cubes and put in the bottom of the crock pot.
2. In separate bowl, mix together sriracha sauce, honey, and juice from 1 lime.
3. Pour over chicken in crock pot.
4. Cook on low for 5 hours or high for 2-3.
5 (optional): Put chicken in a bowl and pour remaining sauce into sauce pan. Boil on stove until the sauce thickens and begins to caramelize. Pour over chicken and serve!







To make kid friendly, I separate out some chicken and added a couple scoops of light mayo. Shredded and mixed together to give it less of a kick. Still the same great flavor but not so spicy. 


And how great are these plates?! My kids used them for the first time last night and I love how they help with portion control and teaching healthy eating habits. They are called MyPlate Kids Nutrition Plate and you can find them on Amazon. There is an adult version too!

Are you a Sriracha fanatic who likes Sriracha sauce on everything?! Then you may like the refillable Sriracha-2-Go keychain squeeze bottle :)
