Child's Scarf -- Crochet

A child's scarf for charity from a frogged project.

Frogged some of the brown and just used this part.  Couldn't even see the pattern in the magazine that was with this.  Probably one I was just using a different stitch pattern.

2 dishcloths -- Crochet

I saw this on Pinterest and it linked to an Esty shop with the pattern for almost $5. I decided to try it myself, thinking I had done something similar.  Later I saw free patterns similar to these. But these were ones I just made up

Cotton yarn
Sizer H hook

Blue floral maxi skirt --sewing

My new maxi skirt. Simple A-line sewing pattern that I use all the time, elastic waist, and pockets. It's a tad darker blue, but pretty close in the picture. Cotton fabric.

Ribbed Dishcloth

Made today.
I did it smaller because I crochet lose, so I added a big edging.
Pattern : Ribbed
Yarn: Cotton yarn,  worsted weight.  The labels gone and I can't remember the brand. Just a big cone.
Size H hook.

Crochet Dishtowel Topper

To match my cupcake dishclothes (sort of) I'm doing a bunch of towel toppers.  Plus they stay on the holder and I can get 2 towels because I cut the towel in half.

I did this one a while ago, but didn't post it here as I was waiting to finish another one.

Cotton yarn.
Size I hook
Just make up the pattern.


July Doily

I didn't know what to call this one. Just a simple shell stitch and v-stitches. I did start following a pattern for the first 2 rounds, then just decided not to follow it.

Size 3 thread
Size F hook
Approximately 14 inches in diameter


1915 Doily

1915 Doily. I used 2 versions to create this doily.   Up to round 7 was the circle doily.  Then I did the half doily for the remainder. Used the 1915 wording. #crochet
Size 3 thread
Approximately 12 inches in diameter
Size F hook

Here's my finished doily:

This is the book I have that it came in (I have 3, there's a blue and green cover on the other 2):

These were all the booklets from all the patterns in the above book.  Mine is the lower right hand cover one with the TBC on it (I'm pretty sure, it's the closest I could find that matched the description of the title for the pages mine was on): 

Here was the square doily in the book.  You can see some of the instructions down below and how I had to convert them to 2014 wording:

Here's the half doily I took the last 3 rounds from. Just copying the picture the best I could since they weren't in the book:
