Keep Your Hands Warm With These Hand Warmers This Winter

Hey y’all! So, a few posts back I made a T-shirt with these easy flowers.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make hand warmers to match or to add the flowers to the back pockets of some jeans.  I decided to make hand warmers with winter coming. I get really cold hands that rarely warm-up all winter long. These will help me stay warm while allowing me to still use my hands.  These are super easy to make and work up quickly. Perfect for the beginner. Without further adieu, here is the pattern. I hope you like it! Tell me, do you wear hand warmers often as well in the winter months?

Easy Crochet Purse For Beginners

I love working with Bernat Blank Yarn.  I have made several purses using this yarn and I love it. It’s soft and plushy feeling.  This pattern’s worked with a larger hook so, I strongly recommend sewing an inside or using an insert like mine. (This is the insert I use.) I currently use the medium insert, but this purse will work for both medium and large. I love my insert because I can change purses with ease and I love to change my purses frequently. This crochet purse is quick and easy to make, only taking a few hours give or take. It is perfect for the beginner. Hope you enjoy!

Crochet Newsboy Hat in Your Favorite Team Color

Have you ever had a pattern that you are so in love with, that you literally know it by heart?  It’s a pattern you go to time and time again and there really is no reason to find another because you are just that in love with the pattern?  Well, I have one and it’s a pattern created by Lorene with Cre8tionCrochet.com.  She has many amazing patterns, but her Newsboy Crochet Hat, is definitely my favorite. I have honestly not made another type of hat since. Not even my own patterns. Why mess with a good thing?  I think I have this hat in every color. However, my favorite is the Broncos Hat I made for my daughter (Yes, I definitely steal it, I mean borrow it. Don’t judge.:) ).
Below is how I turned this Newsboy Hat into a hat you can wear to support your favorite team. You can make hats that show-off all kinds of sports. Little league football, baseball, High school teams etc.

Easy One Hour Girls Crochet Purse

 

Easy One Hour Girls Crochet Purse, Free Pattern, Crochet for Beginners

My Daughter’s school recently had a Daddy/Daughter Dance.  She asked me to make her and her best friend matching purses to take.  She made this request the day before the dance so, I had very little time to make these purses. I knew I had to make something easy, quick and cute.

These purses are the end product of what I came up with.
Easy One Hour Girls Crochet Purse, Free Pattern, Crochet For Beginners          Easy One Hour Girls Crochet Purse, Free Pattern, Crochet For Beginners

This purse is so cute and I completed it in about an hour.  I am a slow crocheter and I was able to complete this whole purse while watching an episode of, “This Is Us”(Isn’t it the best show ever?!).  It’s a perfect accessory to any girls wardrobe.

Update: After the dance, my daughter told me it really needs a closure.  So, I will be adjusting the pattern to add a closure to it. I will update the pattern when I complete it. However, it’s really cute without any closure; I just wouldn’t let girls dance around and jump up and down without one. 😉

 

Easy One Hour Girls Crochet Purse

Materials

I Hook
Any 2 colors worsted yarn that you would like to use for the purse and the flower. (Remnant yarn could probably be used, it doesn’t take much.)
Button
Pattern
Note:This purse I would consider for an intermediate beginner since it does use the Front Post Single Crochet Stitch. (Instead of stitching into the next stitch space, you take your hook through the space, go behind the post of the previous rows single crochet and come through on the other side of the post. Single Crochet as usual.) This stitch is what gives the purse its ribbed look. you could probably do the whole purse in single crochet only instead of the front post single crochet, but I have not tested it. If you decide to do this, please let me know how it turns out. 

Purse Panels (Make 2)

1. chain 22
2. *single crochet in 2nd chain from hook. single crochet in each chain. Chain 1, turn (21 single crochet)
3.front post single crochet in each post to the end of the row. At the end of the row, you will have one stitch from the last row that hasn’t been worked. single crochet in this stitch. chain 1, turn* (you will have 20 front post single crochet and 1 single crochet at the end)
4.Repeat directions between the two stars for a total of 16 rows. You will have 8 rows of single crochet and 8 rows of front post single crochet.

Take both panels with the ribbed stitches laying vertical, face the two ribbed sides together. (You should see the flat side of each panel) slip stitch around the panels to make the purse body. Make sure you remember to leave an opening for the top of the purse. Turn right side back out.

Flower

1.chain 2
2.In second chain from hook, insert 11 single crochet into this chain
Note: I did not do a slip stitch into the first single crochet when I finished the 11 single crochet, rather I just started my stitches to create the flower.
3.In first single crochet work (single crochet, double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet, double crochet, double crochet, single crochet)
4.In next single crochet work a single crochet
5.Repeat (single crochet, double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet, double crochet, double crochet, single crochet) in one single crochet and then work a single crochet in the next. You will have a total of 5 petals when complete and should end with a single crochet, Bind off
6.Add a button to the center of the purse and then stitch the flower onto the front of the purse
Handle

1.chain 95
2.Stitch onto purse from the inside of the purse
3.Finished!
