‘Tis the Season

Warming the Heart

With a successful Apple Scrapple craft show behind us, it’s onward to preparation for Christmas in Bridgeville, our next craft show on the horizon.  We’ve been busy starting Christmas crafting.  I’ve been mostly focusing this year on reindeer hats and headbands.  I hope they’re a big hit.  Once I finally have one completed, I’ll post a picture, but as I’m doing assembly line style, I still have 14 antlers, 25 ear pieces, and a few bows to make, plus a minimum of 9 buttons to sew on.  I suspect I’ll be done sometime in….October.  🙂  Kidding.  Keep posted for some upcoming specials, namely in conjunction with Small Business Saturday.

The Unicorn Trend

I am sure you have heard this at least once, “Be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn (or Batman), then be a unicorn… (or Batman)” I have always found unicorns to be fascinating creatures. Although I doubt they are as we depicted, spreading cheer & rainbows everywhere. I imagine them to be quite fiercer, like the rhinocerous. Rawr.. don’t want to be impaled by that horn. 

Anyways, the unicorn trend… I jumped on that band wagon as I was crocheting headbands this month AND even whipped up a pretty mug cozy.

Happy hooking! 🦄🌈☕

Come and See Us!

Warming the Heart

The Apple Scrapple Festival is this weekend.  As a result, I’ve been very busy preparing.  This will be our 6th year participating in the Trinity Craft Show at Apple Scrapple.  If you’d like to stop by and peruse our amazing inventory, we will be located in the gymnasium of Woodbridge Middle School (307 Laws Street, Bridgeville, DE) on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 9am to 4pm.

We have so many cool items to choose from.  Don’t let the warm day deter you from making a cold weather purchase.  😉  Hope to see you there!

Also, if you see something you like, but can’t attend the craft show, email us!  We will sell from our inventory, or even will do custom orders.  rcraftycreations@gmail.com.

Flower Power Headphones Pattern

Warming the Heart

Check out my new pattern!  It’s been ages since I took the time to write and post a new pattern.  I’m always creating, but formatting a pattern, getting it tested, and all the other stuff that goes into pattern publishing is so much work that I rarely am committed enough to follow through.  🙂

I created this pattern for a DJ Suki Trolls hat.  I couldn’t find a headphone pattern that resembled hers as closely as I desired, so I wrote my own.  It’s been proofed and tested and looks great in a variety of colors.

You can buy the pattern on Ravelry for $5.  Flower Power Headphone Pattern

It incorporates some tapestry crochet, but isn’t too difficult to pick up if you’ve never done tapestry before, give it a try and you might find you enjoy it!

Crazy turkeys

My daughter watches a movie, Free Birds, in which two turkeys travel back in time “to stop the first Thanksgiving”. It is a cute movie. So my daughter often asks if we can “pwetend to be the cwaaaaazyy turkeys”. 🦃

This year I whipped up a few Crazy Turkey hats for our Apple Scrapple festival. They turned out cute. 

Then my children asked to try them on…

Then ran to look at themselves in the mirror & pulled the hats down like this…

And began to gobble & flap their arms about. (Crazy turkeys)

Crocheting my life away & wishing you a great day…

Crafting like crazy

Hi everyone! I hope your day has been filled with sparkley rays of sunshine. 🌞 I have been sooo busy, between caring for my 2 children, who are bundles of excitement & bursts of energy, & crafting, & crafting. & did I say crafting? Lol #craftaddictinthehouse

Anyways, crafting, partly for our Apple Scrapple Festival, and partly for the changing of the seasons has been so much fun. My partner has already posted about our Troll inspired hats. (Are they not amazing?)  To “Branch” out a little, I also made a Mr. Dinkles hat(mew). I did not have a pattern to go from, but had a blast making up different pieces & trying my creativity. Here is the final product…

                                                “Oh snap!”

Happy crafting everyone!!
