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 or borderless if your printer will allow. ** This will give you lines right to the edge of the paper.

Happy Crochet!

Free Potion Jar Label Printable

Just in case you have an urgent need to enhance your wrinkles in time for Halloween
(or add another potion jar to your apothecary) I have made a printable label for you. 

This fit perfectly on a maple syrup jar filled with water, drop or two of vanilla, and a dash of green food colouring. 

My free labels are for personal use only. Light commercial use is included with my purchased labels. 

If you are in need of more labels for your witches pantry, please visit my Etsy Store.

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!

Free Pumpkin Label Update

Happy almost Halloween season!

 I have finally set up an Etsy store to sell my Halloween Apothecary labels - both my old favourites and all new witch potion jar labels. This called for an update to my free Fairy Pumpkin label.
The original version was posted in 2011 and is still available here. It is perfect for those little putka pods that are available at craft stores. This is a great craft for kid's Halloween parties.

Click on the label to get the highest resolution and save to your computer. It is free for personal use only please.

Check back later this month as I will be offering my Witches Spell Book pages free as well.

The link to my store is on the upper right.

Garden Shed Happy

It's been about a year since we finished my garden shed and it makes me even happier than I imagined. Sitting on the patio and looking at it or sitting on it's porch with the bees and birds busy around me.

We added a small flower bed this spring and divided plants from other beds to fill it.
I am anxious to get busy on the interior...
