Stitch It Sunday: Women's Hoodie

I don't know about you, but I LOVE tops like this hoodie! Made from a lightweight stretchy fabric, has a phone pocket (well... that's what I use it for!) and either at the full long sleeve length, or short sleeve, or my favorite - 3/4 sleeve length! I probably own 8? Hehe. Now with this free sewing pattern, I can make my own!! And with sizes XS through XXL, you can too! They would make great gifts too!

As a beginner sewer, I really appreciate the fact that there is a photo tutorial of assembly too! 

I will say, pattern does state to use a double/twin needle or knit stitch for all seams, and I don't know what that means, but! Have no fear, because there is a link to a tutorial on that as well, and there is a video included in that link! Definitely a worthy tutorial to pin to my Hobby: Useful Sewing Info board.

To get the free pattern, you will need to access Craftsy.

What You'll Need:
     Any kind of stretch fabric, like Knit, French Terry, Thermal or Fleece, Pins and Your Sewing Machine with respective Thread

Yarny Saturday: Crochet Turkey Wreath

So this week I also shared the Fall Planter Box Door Hanger, which could be used as your fall wreath through the whole season, but if you are looking specifically for a Thanksgiving Wreath, this is such a fun one to make! I just love the cute little body with the fuzzy "hair", and the dangling legs. 

As far as the feathers go... while crocheting the whole thing is fun, a nice alternative would be to purchase some feathers at your local craft store as an alternative, or some pretty, detailed paper feathers! Could even place a wood sign that says "Happy Thanksgiving" along the bottom side of the feathers.

Though not mentioned in the post, I included hot glue and sticks in the materials below. It takes a lot of work to make the turkey and feathers, save yourself a lot of time with assembly by just hot gluing the pieces together! Sarah also uses pipe cleaners to make the feathers stand, but I am sure some fabric stiffener would also work well!

Looking for a bigger wreath form? I have a free crochet pattern on my EyeLoveKnots blog for a Basic 12" Wreath Form Cover.

What You'll Need:
     G6/4mm Crochet Hook, 10" Wreath Form, Worsted Weight Yarn - Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice used in the original wreath, Small Safety Eyes, Polyfil Stuffing, and a Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends and Sewing, Pipe Cleaners (to make the feathers stand), and Hot Glue with Sticks

DIY Friday: Fall Planter Box Door Hanger

I love this Planter Box Door Hanger as a fall harvest wreath! Perfect all the way through Thanksgiving. It's also perfect as a wall hanging in your kitchen, or maybe even dining room. 

Looking at this planter box, I am envisioning a piece that can be changed throughout the year. With a floral block, you would be able to remove the floral picks, and change out the pieces for any time of the year. The "FALL" phrase... Maybe some clear zip ties could be used to secure, rather than permanently gluing down. As far as the stain goes... This is perfect year round for a rustic or farmhouse home, or change it up to better match existing wood colors at home. 

I am in love with this! Wait! Just thought of something else! Instead of using the "FALL" wood piece, how about using small clothespins to attach fall photos and/or post cards to the chicken wire, or even small trinkets?! So many possibilities!

What You'll Need:
     Chicken Wire Window Frame, Unfinished Wood Planter Box, Wood Craft Glue, Stain & Polyurethane, FALL Wood Piece, Gold Paint, Various Floral Picks and Floral Foam

Bling It Thursday: Tango Block Earrings

I have had these Tango Block Earrings bookmarked for a while. I love the look of the twisted wire around, and the colors in this pair are just gorgeous together! They scream fall. They could easily scream a different holiday, season or occasion by simply changing the colors. They would also look great in just one solid color, or half on color, and half another. 

Looking at these, I can also so a wire wrapped bangle. I will have to go over and see if they have bangles to do so with! Or a solid ring for a necklace pendant. So many possibilities!

One thing I always end up checking when deciding which Fusion Bead project to attempt next is the cost in materials, so I am including an Estimated Cost in Materials for you: Just under $20.

What You'll Need:
     4mm Bicones in Your Choice of Colors, 1 Pair of Tube Hoop Earrings, Jewelry Wire, Wire Cutters, Chain Nose Pliers and Hypo Tube Cement

Tasty Tuesday: Pumpkin Banana Streusel Muffins

I love anything with a delicious, crunchy streusel glaze top - muffins, coffee cake... I think I might get in trouble too with these, and the desire to eat the tops off, and drag on eating the rest... But not too much! The bottom is a good part to eat with a cup of coffee.

These muffins are great for gifting, snacking, or as a fall breakfast. They'd also make a great addition to the Thanksgiving dessert table.

What You'll Need:
     Muffins: Canned Pumpkin, Mashed Banana, Milk, Oil, Brown Sugar, Flour, Quick Oats, Chopped Pecans, Salt, Baking Powder, Baking Soda and Pumpkin Pie Spice

     Streusel: Brown Sugar, Quick Oats, Flour, Chopped Pecans, Pumpkin Pie Spice, Butter

     Glaze: Powdered Sugar, Water

Stitch It Sunday: Geometric Turkey Embroidery Art

Though we still have Halloween this coming week, I thinking it's time to start thinking of Thanksgiving! This Geometric Turkey Embroidery Art piece is so fun, and on trend. 

Plastic canvas crafting was my first love more than 10 years ago. I have worked similar pieces on the plastic canvas, but never attempted an embroidery project like this on canvas. I will admit, it's always been intimidating to me, and if you're like me, don't fret! There is a photo tutorial explaining how to apply your design, and the basic idea of the stitch. Nancy makes it look so easy! Can't wait to get myself a water soluble marker, and work on my own geometric embroidery design.

There isn't a pattern attached to this link, so you will need to freehand your own turkey. I would assume you could print an image and trace if the canvas is light enough to see through, or cut out a turkey image, trace the outline and fill in the details yourself.

What You'll Need:
     Embroidery Hoop and Floss, Heavy Canvas Material, Water Soluble Marker, Rule and Tapestry Needle.

Yarny Saturday: Crochet Sun Hat Pattern and Rainbow Costume

This is such a sweet costume idea for a little one! The Rainbow Costume was found at a store, but looking at it, it looks like it would be such an easy outfit to DIY with some felt - either with a sewing machine, sewing by hand or fabric glue.

The hat is the perfect addition to this costume! So creative with the rays extending from the hat. It would also be a good summer themed hat. I am thinking an added brim would be a great touch to keep the actual sun off the face.

What You'll Need:
     Worsted Weight Yarn - Vanna's Choice used, H8/5mm Crochet Hook, Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends and Sewing on Rays. Rainbow Costume purchased, not DIY'd.
