I'm still here and everything is fine. I just kind of hit a rut where I didn't really feel like doing anything crafty. Anyways, here is the latest project. I like to wear skirts and it sucks not having pockets. So I came up with this belt pocket. I am making this a free pattern since I haven't put out any free patterns in a while. Here you go. I hope you like it.
NOTE: If everything goes well, I plan on making a web series. The first edition will be on how to crochet. I will just be covering basic stuff. Then I will move on to other crafty things. I am still a little nervous about being on camera, but I will give it a good try. Keep checking back if that is something that interests you :)
I tried recording the web series, but my daughter was too distracting. I am going to wait until she goes back to school to record it. I haven't abandoned this project. I know quite a few of you are looking forward to it, and I am excited too. Just a little bit longer. Sorry for the long wait.
Police Box Belt Pocket
April Folts 2013
For personal use only
If you are going to post pictures anywhere, please link back to me so I get credit for the pattern. Thanks :)
Hook size: F
Yarn: 100% acrylic, 4 ply, Worsted Weight, RedHeart Olympic Blue, White, and Black Yarn
FpSc = Front Post Single Crochet
BpSc = Back Post Single Crochet
sc = Single Crochet
ch = Chain
Row = Row
When complete, fold bottom up to just below the black at the top.
Set aside until last piece is made.
It would be easier to add the bead letters and black to the windows now, but you can do it at any time.
This picture might help with the outside pocket, but it isn’t necessary. It just gives you an idea of what you will be doing.
Piece 2 (Outside Pocket)
Note: It doesn’t really matter on the ends if the post is front or back, when you sew it together it doesn’t really show up. It is just a texture thing. Plus it is hard to do a post stitch on the ends let alone tell if it is front or back post.

I wanted to make a hat that was thick because it is getting cold. I was surprised at how fast I completed this. It only took me a few hours. This hat is made holding two pieces of yarn together. I thought it might turn out too heavy but I took a chance. I like how it turned out. My daughter did too so it now belongs to her lol I have the pattern available for $3 in my Etsy Shop if anyone is interested.

I made this because I received quite a few requests for a hat like this. A few of you wanted my dark wizard hood but you wanted it with a long tail and couldn't figure out how to make it. So here it is :)My awesome friend Aaron did a great job modeling for me. You might recognize him from the Super Long Goth Hat pattern. We had a lot of fun ;) He actually inspired the name a little bit. The Axe he is holding is a Lord of the Rings Replica. The long tail of the hat made me think of Legolas and the hood made me think of Aragorn. So combine the two and this is what I got lol. The Pattern will be available for $3.00 in my etsy shop if anyone is interested.

I just wanted to let you all know that I am still alive and everything is fine. I haven't really felt like crocheting lately so that is why there haven’t been any new patterns. I have still been crafting just not crocheting. I will post more patterns in the future so please don't give up on me :) Anyways, here are some pictures of some of the other stuff I have made. I know it isn't crochet and I debated on whether or not to post it, but I figured it would still be ok :) Take Care Everyone! The glasses are hand etched, the masks are made out of pine needles, and the pictures are drawings/paintings I made :)

With all of this snow I have been thinking of Spring. How fun it will be to go hiking in the woods ;) I wanted to make a hat that I could wear to keep the flies off my head and the sun out of my eyes. This is the design I came up with. Oh and I am excited I finally get to use my "man" mannequin head. Unfortunately, I can only take side view pictures of him because whoever painted his eyes made him look like he had a lazy eye and he looks horrible. Oh well. It still works lol ;D What do you think? I have the pattern available for $3 in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested. Have a Great Day everyone :)

I made this for my Daughter as a Yule gift. She has been begging me for an Orange Pony for years now. I was trying to think of a new pattern, since I already have a few pony patterns, and then the idea to put a pocket in it came to my mind. It is a little girl's dream come true. A pony with a pocket to stash stuff. There are so many things she can put in it. Money, candy storage, treasures, rice pack, herbal sachets. jewelery, ect... the list goes on and on. She loves it. I was thinking about making one for me too hehe. I have the pattern available in my Etsy Shop for $6.20 if anyone is interested. What do you think?
