Last night Emma and I dragged out her paint and made a couple things. I took a couple of empty coffee mate creamer bottles and let Emma paint one while I painted a penguin (I'm little bit penguin obsessed).
Also my child is pokemon obsessed. And when she wanted to paint her hand yellow it hit me... HANDPRINT PIKACHU! So we made a mommy and Emma pikachu, daddy will be next.
Emma painted me a picture too and told me it was a duck.
I couldn't find a pattern I liked so I wrote one up myself. I got the idea to make one because every time I make my coffee my 3 year old wants "coffee" too. So I make her some tea with milk. The mug stays warm for a while so she can't pick it up. And then sparked the idea "hey I can crochet I'll just make her a cozy!"
So here's the pattern:
Fits 10.5" mug
Half double crochet: hdc
Single crochet: SC
Row 1: ch 9
Row 2: SC in each st
Row 3-4: ch 1 repeat row 2
Row 5-7: ch 1, 2 SC in first st & 2 SC in last st
Row 8-50: ch 1, hdc in each st
Row 51: ch1, dec in first 2 st & dec in last 2 st of row
Row 52-53: ch 1 and repeat row 51
Row 54-55: ch 1 SC in each st
Row 56: ch 1 SC first 2 st, ch 3 (skip 3 st) SC in last 2 st (you just made your button hole)
Row 57: ch 1 SC in each st and then finish off
You just made a cozy! Now choose a button of your liking and sew it on. You can add anything you'd like to your cozy.
In 2012 I opened a Facebook page called ClementsCrafts to sell all my handmade crafts. For a long time my health got in the way of my crocheting. Hard to crochet when you have arthritis in your hands. Well since my health since to be some what under control I decided to reopen my store. It's still just an fb page. I haven't started selling anything on etsy yet even though I do have a store already open on it. So far right now all that I'm selling are crochet hats and coffee cozies. I do take requests so please go like my page!
