Well for this week’s fresh off the hook I have some Christmas ornaments and 2 kitchen items.
First up the ornaments:
These great little ice skates would again make a nice ornament or gift topper for the skater in your life. I found the pattern on Suzies Stuff and again used yarn from my yarn bucket. Two things I would like to note on these. One my grandmother had asked me to make these for her last year and I kinda forgot so I’m hoping to make her a few sets this year. Second, I have looked in my local stores and am having a hard time finding silver jumbo paper clips. This is kinda discouraging but if need be I can find gold colored ones.
These star ornaments are done in crochet thread and then stiffened. I got the pattern from Our Best Christmas Thread Crochet.
Next up is the kitchen items.
The first item is a bag lady meant to hold your plastic bags. As you can see she is holding a bag as well. I made her using Red Heart Super Saver yarn and an elastic pony tail holder. You can find the pattern here.
Here is a pretty dish soap dress made with 100% cotton. The pattern comes from Crochet World August 2009.
I hope you enjoy this week’s edition of fresh off the hook. I’m hopefully that you will soon see these items for sale in my etsy shop.
