Cat Harness

Now you can annoy the heck out of your cat & get some exercise at the same time ;)

Maybe there are some cats out there who would enjoy this, but our Mr Underfoot would hate it!

Granny square cushion

I saw a rug pattern similar to this on ravelry recently.

Once I hunt it down again I'll add the link here, because I think the two would go lovely together.

Pineapple Skirt / Poncho

I just love this skirt - it's floaty and classy.

Might get a bit breezy, so you might need something underneath ;)

Poncho Skirt

The string tie allows this to be worn as either a poncho or a skirt.

Surprisingly, it looks quite cute, and a lot better than it sounds.

Snow Hat DIY

Love this hat, but we don't have snow here in winter!

I'm hoping one day we'll live somewhere this will come in handy ;)

I especially love the pompom on the top of the hood :D

Shame my two kiddo's are too old!

Shimmer Skirt or Poncho?

This pattern from Red Heart can be used to make either a skirt or a poncho.

One assumes you would wear a slip or petticoat under the skirt version...

Crochet Hook Case

A very handy little project.

Keep your hooks in this and pop it in your handbag when you're going on a trip.

Or give one to a friend who crochets!

Crochet Rose Cushion

Just imagine this design in colours to match your home!

Mine would be blue, of course.
And because I don't have an oversized button like the one Tristin used I'd have to do a lot of thinking to figure out what to put in the centre...

Anyway, all you need to know is how to make a chain and crochet shells into it!
