cro spring garland 0315

Make this sweet garland in colors to match your wreath.  Use it to adorn the valance of your drapes, above a doorway, or along any wall.  This is a great project for beginners too.  It’s highly adaptable.  You can use this idea to add any flowers to a garland.  Freeform them, use other free patterns online, embellish with buttons or beads, make in any length you want, and add more flowers as you go if you like.  The free pattern is here.

cro owl toy 0315

This cute little owl is actually a baby rattle.  Free pattern here.  This got me to thinking about a wreath for baby’s room that would be adorned with some simple playthings for baby.  This is one of the very rare times when I would use velcro with crochet.  Sew on a couple small circles of velcro (or similar) to the back of the owl and to the front of the wreath where the bumble bee is.  Then you have a detachable baby rattle that has a nifty storage area all its own.  Baby and mom both would enjoy this!  Just remember to keep the wreath with all those buttons on it away from baby so the buttons don’t get ‘tasted’ by baby.

How many other cute little toys could we use for this application?  Small rattles, small teething rings, cute little soft ‘blocks’ – what else?  How sweet would that be?
