I finished making a few items as gifts this weekend and realized I didn't have any cute tags to go along with them. So being the "I can make it myself" person that I am, I went ahead and made a tag! I thought I would share it with all of you.
This tag can be printed on any printer with whatever paper you like. I prefer to use card stock, it makes the tag more durable.
I used this fancy "Fiskars" Paper cutter that my Mother In Law had. This cutter seriously made the job SO MUCH easier and a much cleaner edge than any pair of scissors could have done. You can find the one similar to the one I used HERE.

Recently we made a move into a new house, as we were unpacking I began to collect a large pile of plastic grocery bags. I generally use this bags pretty often so I didn’t want to throw them away.
So, it was Thanksgiving Day 2018 (which was only last month but we’re being a bit dramatic here) I was taking my famous green bean casserole over to my brothers house.
As Fall is approaching I’ve noticed a multitude of “crochet pumpkin” patterns show up all over my Pinterest feed. I LOVE how they look. I went ahead and designed two more pumpkins to go along with this one so that you can make your own “Crochet Pumpkin Patch!”
As Fall is approaching I’ve noticed a multitude of “crochet pumpkin” patterns show up all over my Pinterest feed. I LOVE how they look, but one thing I noticed was I didn’t see any patterns using a textured stitch. We all know I love textured stitches.
Remember when I said I was planning on design a collection of "Rustic" Home Items. Well, Here is the next item on that list; The Amour Hanging Towel. This dish towel is made unique because it hangs from your oven handle! I've wanted to design a dish cloth like this for a while, so I am SO HAPPY to finally have done this for you all!
Recently, I have found myself with a new appreciation for handmade dish & wash cloths. They are the most simple project, work up quickly and make for the perfect gift!
In all the years I've been crocheting/knitting I am yet to make a pom pom rug! Of course, this DIY does not require you to crochet/knit but with having such a large yarn stash you would think I'd have made one by now.
I've been pretty busy lately, as most of you know this blog is new to me and I'm still working on coming up with fun DIY projects for you all. I've actually been in an inspiration rut lately, when this happens I will often leave my house and just wonder around town. So that's exactly what I did!
Recently, a family friend of ours visited us and she happened to bring along dish scrubbies. Random? Yes. Useful? Totally.
As our we chatted she began to tell me about her dish scrubbies, she went on to say that making them was her "thing." She exclaimed, "They are a great and quick project that I am easily able to sell for my fundraisers."
I was strolling through Hobby Lobby the other day and came across the fluffiest yarn ever! I just knew from that moment I HAD to make a blanket using Lion Brands Baby Soft Boucle yarn.
A little over one year ago today I gave birth to this sweet little babe you see pictured here. He was small, quiet, and absolutely beautiful.
My brother recently announced that he will be welcoming his first child into the world (Yay!) This means I will be an Auntie for the FIRST TIME! To celebrate the new little baby entering our family I just had to make him/her their own custom baby blanket!
A while back I told you all about how I was planning on slowly posting almost all of my crochet patterns from the past two years to the blog as free patterns.
Well, today I have a surprise pattern for you all; The Jubilee Dress!
So I recently challenged myself to knit/crochet a newborn hat for the next 30 days. I find that I get so consumed with using my craft for work that I forget to use it for the good of others as well. So, I will be donating all of these hats to my local hospital once i'm done. If any of you are willing to join me, I will be posting a newborn hat pattern EVERYDAY for the next 30 days! Yay!
Today I have a pretty sweet pattern for you all, a basic slouchy beanie for ALL SIZES. That's right, your tiny little babe can now rock an adorable slouchy beanie!
What I love the most about this pattern is the fact that you are able to use pretty much any texture/fiber of yarn and the blanket will always turn out beautiful! Don't feel like you have to use the same yarn I did, I've used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and this blanket turns out just as squishy and gorgeous as always.
The Tilia Baby Blanket was inspired by my daughter Tilia, who also happened to be surprise...surprise...The inspiration behind my business name Hooked On Tilly!
The drape this blanket has is AMAZING!
