** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

Little pink purse


I crocheted this little purse at work on my lunch breaks - took a few days. I used Red Heart sparkling pink and my trusty "I" hook. It measures 6 1/2" x 6 3/4" - just big enough to carry my ID, a few dollars, cigarettes and my camera. I'm going to use it for a couple of weddings - my nephew Donnie and (soon to be neice) Karen are getting married June 6th - and (long-time friends) Rich and Robin's daughter Rachel is getting married May 30th.

Rose bucket bag




I finished this bucket bag yesterday. I crocheted it with 2 strands RHSS "soft white" and Vanna's Choice "rose mint" (I think the color is supposed to be "rose mist" - the blue and the purple I have say "mist" - and besides "mint" doesn't make sense). I used an L hook. It's the same style as the blue bucket bag but without the round of popcorn sts and with some rnds of hdc thrown in. The cell phone holder is only hanging on the outside for the picture - I always have it hanging on the inside. I like the bucket style bags - I can get alot of stuff in there. :)

Giant yarn ball


I bought a skein of black Caron One Pounder from Joann's and used 3 oz. for a purse I'm making. I rolled what was left into this giant yarn ball - it weighs 13 oz. and measures 7" side to side. I love yarn.

Ladybug's new collar


I made Ladybug a new collar last night. She keeps loosing them in the yard somewhere - I think maybe under the racks of wood - she likes climbing under there - or maybe the big bush that her and Tex play hide and go seek under. :)


When I look at Ladybug wearing her collar, I can't decide if she looks like a flower or a clown. She's a cute girl either way.


The collars are very easy to crochet. First, measure the dogs neck and either tie or hot glue 1/4" elastic into a circle. Join worsted weight yarn with a sc around the elastic and sc around to cover completely. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Sc in same sc, * ch 7, skip next sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around. Ch 7, skip next sc, join with a sl st to 1st sc. End off. It really doesn't matter if you end up with an extra sc or not at the end - no one will be able to tell. :)
