crocheted "lunch money" purse

Small crocheted "lunch money" purse for Spenser. It's just her size. From this free pattern.

green felted clutch

Small, green and felted. That describes this little clutch. It's fairly small except the large flower on the top. (Maybe a little too large?) I used this free pattern. (This was my first attempt at felting and "sewing" together a crocheted project.) The finished bag is approximately 4" x 6.25".

crocheted bib

Crocheted in sage green crochet thread. It is from this free pattern. It's a little large and, thus, heavy. Ties in the back with a white ribbon.

party favor drawstring bags

Embroidered drawstring bags for Mason's 4th birthday party. Eleven in all. (Stuffed with colored pencils, crayons, small writing table, chips, and a fruit roll-up.) Lined in muslin.

2 more wee bibs

Two more wee bibs for my wee babe (due in less than 5 weeks). Crocheted from this free pattern. Both have a vintage button closure.
It's hard to see, but the ecru bib is edged in the same ecru crochet thread and has 1/4" wide white ribbon running through it. The blue bib is edged in white and has 1/8" wide white ribbon.
Used crochet thread for both and (I think) a size 2 steel hook.

A personalized wristlet for my swap partner.

And a tote, tissue pouch and patchwork bookmarker.

A summery, crocheted scarf from this free pattern. Crocheted in ecru crochet thread, using size 2 steel hook. Finished length is 2 3/4" x 81 1/4".

wee mittens

Crocheted wee mittens for my wee babe (to be born mid-September).

wee bib

Crocheted (not sewn) from this free, vintage pattern. However, I did have to sew the ribbon in place. Used vintage button for closure.
My husband has been traveling a lot, so I've been crocheting at night to keep busy after the children are in bed, hence not a lot of sewing going on. More bibs to come...

personalized tote

A simple tote for a friend's birthday with machine-embroidered name.

Interfaced exterior, white muslin lining, with white cotton webbing (belting) for handle.

tissue pouches and card

A machine-embroidered, 93rd birthday card (which held money) and yellow tissue pouch for my grandmother. A brown tissue pouch for a friend (who requested it).
