Crochet, Gifting

Easy Breezy Potholders

My bestie loves to cook and her birthday was the perfect opportunity for me to whip up some potholders. It was one of the first things I learned to crochet and is wonderfully simple, yet fun.

To finish up her gift I picked up a Blue Q oven mitt from Copper Pony. The mitt is sassy, fun, and matches the potholders perfectly. I also found a fantastic card that matched my color scheme. If you are in the St. Cloud area I definitely recommend checking out the store. There are tons of fun goodies, the shop smells amazing, and the owner is phenomenal. I was also lured in buy the close-out sale at Herberger’s and found a cute spatula to round out the gift.

I used the Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Retro Stripe and the recommended hook size I-9 (5.5mm) from Boye. I love using the stripes yarn because the color change motivates me to keep working on my project. I picked up mine at Joann so I could use the 5% cashback from Ibotta. I also picked up a few skeins of Big Twist yarn to test out because they had some great deals for it,

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I made the handmade portion of my gift!

Cube Upgrade!

On a recent trip to Joann I found a yard and a half of the Library Llamas print in the remnants bin. With the sales going on I managed to snag it for just a few dollars. SCORE!

I am definitely an impulse buyer and picked up the adorable fabric without a plan in mind. Off to the shelf it went while I waited for inspiration to strike.

Then I was looking at my sad green storage cube and realized my Library Llamas would be perfect for an upgrade.

In addition to the extra cuteness, my cube is much softer now and all it took was borrowing my moms handy staple gun.

If you are planning to stop by Joann to see if you can find some cute fabric I recommend downloading the Ibotta app. They have 5% cashback for receipts submitted along with other great offers. BONUS: If you’re new to Ibotta you’ll get a $10 bonus for signing up through my referral link. Happy shopping!
