Free Printable Gift Labels for Crocheted Christmas Dishcloths

I crocheted for years before I made my first dishcloth... now I cannot imagine my kitchen without one. Oodles of free patterns are available and you can make them as open or dense as you like... everyone has their own preference. Once you start using them you'll be hooked. Just be sure you use 100% cotton.

They make wonderful wee gifts and are easy to work on throughout the year when you have time for a small project or want a take-along to the office or in the car. They fit perfectly into a stocking; use a cute label and you won't even need to wrap them!

I print on kraft paper or kraft cardstock for a sturdier label. Set your printer to 'no margin' or 'full bleed' to get the border right out to the edges of your paper. Use the best quality printer and settings for a crisp label. I use my trusty rotary cutter, quilter's ruler and cutting mat to slice them apart but a paper cutter or scissors work fine. 

My labels are for personal use only. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful holiday season.

Crochet Gift Labels - Free Printable

Tis the season for sharing your hand crocheted goodness with friends and family; adding a label makes your gift look even prettier. The smaller label fits one crocheted dishcloth or use the wider labels for a bundle of two or three dishcloths, a hat or scarf.

I print on sturdy brown kraft paper (cut to 8.5x11 from a roll) or lightweight cardstock and then trim with my rotary cutter and quilting ruler. A paper cutter or good ole scissors work too. ** Select 'Full Bleed' if your printer will allow. ** This will give you lines right to the edge of the paper.

My labels are free for personal use -- click on the image to enlarge to best resolution, then save to your computer.

Happy Crochet!

Crochet Halloween Blanket - Free Pattern

If you love to crochet and love Halloween you too need a Halloween lap blanket. I used this wonderful free pattern that I found on trusty Pinterest. It is a pattern that  is easy enough for a beginner crochet queen and you can work the stripes in any way you choose. Bonita gives it two thumbs up.

Original Pattern Source

48" x 56"

I made my blanket a bit larger than the pattern size, but it is easy to make any size you like with the instructions on the pattern. I used Bernat Premium yarn, in black, dark and medium grey, and cream, available at Walmart. I used Red Heart Super Saver in carrot, also from Walmart. If I remember correctly I used two skeins each of black and dark grey and one each of the others. I used the light grey for a simple picot edging.

Happy Halloween Crochet!
