Here’s that sneak peek I promised! A peek into my crochet bag for Piggin’ & Peddlin’, the BBQ and craft fair that benefits missions around the world.
Before I show you the goodies for the peddlin’, I’d like you to meet my new piggy friend …
First Out of the Bag, A Variety of Dishcloths
First out of my peddlin’ bag, a variety of dishcloths:
Patterns for these are many and not always a dishcloth recipe. I used cotton yarn of one brand or another for all them.
Let’s see how many patterns I can remember:
Seashell (I came up with this one on the hook as I went along)
Simple (or Easy or Beginner or some such word) Dishcloth (I looked all over for the particular pattern I like, but spent more time looking than it would have taken me to tell you how I did it! Basically, it’s a *sc, ch 1* repeat on all rows. On 2nd and following rows, place your sc in the ch-1 spaces. If you know where the pattern is online, please do let me know.)
Then Market Bags Dominated my Hook
I found myself in a market bag making craze!
Here are my two three favorite market bag recipes:
Some bags I combined features from different patterns to make my own favorite blend.
Oh, and here’s the Ladybug Applique (I adapted the head so I could make it in one piece, except for the spots).
If you head over to Ravelry to find these projects, stop by and say hi!
And Finally These Little Cuties
This little craft fair fav is the Granny to Girls Boutique Bag in a variety of colors and textures.
And a message from Turquoise, himself:
Are You a Crocheter Needing Craft Fair Inspiration?
Visit my Pinterest board, Crochet for a Cause: Bread for Life Craft Fair.
You’ll find a link to the pattern I used to make Turquoise there, too!
See ya at Piggin’ & Peddlin’!
REALITY CHECK: I’ve been working on a lot of posts all at once, both to make up for lost time and to get ahead of time speeding toward me. It’s not that I have anyone or anything breathing down my neck to get it done, but after 20 years of enforcing homeschool project deadlines it’s kind of in my blood.
* I’m not sure which colors will be for sale at Piggin’ & Peddlin’ and which ones will go in Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. It got a little wibbley wobbley in the sorting process. So it’ll be a surprise when we get there!
