Handmade accessories, toys, and home goods.
Our newest CAL is perfect for Mother's Day.
These sweet critter amigurumi ring dishes will come in four different animal styles.
The full pattern will be live on the Furls blog on Saturday, May 2nd, but you can grab the supply list and pattern details now.
Something fun to try!
MORE DIY Dye Kits are listed! I hope these will be a fun activity to do while many of us are staying home and staying safe. I posted a how-to video in my IG videos, and I also recorded my kids dyeing their own skeins. I’m working on getting their videos posted. In the listing you can see how our skeins turned out. Enjoy!
Technology is amazing! 🧶
As the shop is now Open to Appointment Only .... I had to figure out a way to host my sweater class this afternoon.
While technology can be aggravating, today I am very thankful that I have the resources and ability to provide setup to host an online class with both visuals and real time demonstration🧶!
Get ready Jay Sweater attendees 🤣

I see a set of these in our future.
I don't use paper gift wrap anymore. A few years ago I made a bunch of these fabric bags with ribbons built in and I've never looked back. It makes both wrapping and post-unwrapping cleanup a breeze. :-) Here's a free tutorial showing how. >>Reusable Christmas Gift Bags | Shiny Happy World http://ed.gr/gjkq
This software engineer from Melbourne managed to 'hack' an old sewing machine to create this stunning knitted map of the stars.

In other news...the book is ready and is off to the printers on Monday!!!! We’ll be putting it on the website at some point next week and I’ll give a big shout out when we do! It will cost £14.95 and 10% of the profits will go to The Brain Tumour Charity! I felt such a wave of pride and satisfaction today when I saw the final proof. I just can’t wait for you to see it! Big hugs ###x
I am confident there is some sort of witchcraft involved in creating these pom poms.

The hat every little girl is going to want! Poppy pattern from Just crafting around! http://www.justcraftingaround.com/crochet-pattern-poppy-hat/
I love this idea!
"We started this tablecloth in 2000. It has the names of everyone we've shared Thanksgiving with each year. Each year is a different color. I am so grateful to have the signatures of those who have left us. . . mom, David's dad, our daughter Mary. It has scribbles of grands and special messages. Everyone signs it at our Thanksgiving and then I embroider it each year and it is quite a treasure to me. Along the edge is a key of what color goes with what year. Thanksgiving is this weekend at our house so we are ready for a new set of signatures." ❤️

PSA: Don't undersell yourself, your time, and your work!!
I made this based on an actual comment directed to one of my fans by her customer. Sometimes they don't understand because "you'll be crocheting anyway", but handmade takes skill, time, and love - you are worth it! Like if you agree!
If you can't reach what you need, reach for the yarn instead!

The Peyton Heart Project
Dear spinners of magic-
You know who you are. You are the beautiful souls who spend countless hours of your time making beautiful hearts. Every chance you get you pull your bag of yarn out and begin to weave your magic into hearts. You make hearts that you know will end up in the hands of strangers and you may never find out what happens to those hearts, but still you continue to make them. You weave a little bit of your soul into each one of those hearts. You know that every heart you make has the potential to be found by someone who is on the brink of despair. They could be looking for a sign to live one more day on the day that they find your heart. That heart that you are about to make could be that sign. So, you hold the yarn ever so gently in your hands and you thank your lucky stars that you survived your suicide attempt(s) all those years ago. Because now you are a weaver of hope for those who don’t know if they can bear to take another breath. You’ve been there.
Or maybe every heart you make helps you heal from the tragic loss of a loved one. It is in their memory that the hearts you create are born.
We all have our own unique story that has brought us to the Peyton Heart Project. In the end we have one common goal and that is to make the world a kinder place.
I have compiled this photo album that shows the many people, along with a few happy pets, we have made smile during our first year. If you ever wonder if your efforts are worthwhile please take a look in this album.
Thank you for your help bringing more love into the world. I hope you will continue helping us expand in the coming year. There are amazing things ahead for us. I can feel it.

Hey crocheters and knitters! The Peyton Heart Project's HQ in NJ is beginning to run low on hearts! If you could please send us hearts in the following colors we would appreciate it. Hearts in red, blue, green, purple, orange, yellow, pink, and any bright variegated yarn as well are needed. We can put the tags on but please be sure to put a closed off loop on the top of every heart. Lately, many people have been sending us envelopes with stamps so that we can send them hearts in return for them to scatter hearts in their town. We do this for people who do not know how to crochet. However, lately, we have begun to run low on hearts and I am concerned that we will run out in the coming weeks. If dozens of you could please help make us as many hearts as possible it will allow us to continue doing what we need to do to keep this project going. Please send the hearts to: PO Box 2374, Morristown, NJ 07962-2374. Thank you! #crochet #knit #peytonheartproject
Remember, you can also make hearts this way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbUTzRhC4Do

In case you were wondering what 12,000 crocheted hearts look like, this should help give you an idea. We bought this wagon so that our volunteer has a way to bring the hearts through the NYC march since there are so many hearts now. These hearts were all made in memory of Tyler Clementi.

This is the tea cosy that will actually get me to work up a tea cosy. 🐌
WHIMSICAL TEA COZY
Happy, happy Monday morning. The week looms before me full of possibilities. Have lots to do this week, most of it pleasant, so ready to roll up my sleeves and get started.
Saw this tea cozy this morning and it so tickled my fancy that I'm still giggling :)
I must be honest, I'm not sure that this project isn't outside my crocheting capabilities. First, there aren't specific directions. The designer helps you make adjustments to fit your own unique pot. Second, it's in Russian, which of course can be translated, but because translations can be a bit wonky, there will be a bit of "filling in the blanks" to get it done.
So, here's my assessment... if you are a good crocheter, I'm thinking you could muddle your way through this. There are tons of photos and charts so between those and the translated words I think it is doable.
Anyway, it brought a bigger smile to my already smiling face... remember, I LOVE Mondays, and I hope it makes you smile, too!

1200 crocheted hearts, and a kind word - it is amazing what only 6 people can do.
"I found out about your project in February. I am a high school teacher and shared it with a student. We brought the idea to our Diversity and AHANA groups at our school and decided to do the project in connection with our "Words Hurt" campaign that is occurring this week. So, two students, four staff members crocheted 1,200 hearts and we attached the Peyton quotes today. We hung one from every student’s locker so that when they arrive tomorrow they will have "positive words" to help them through their day. So proud - just had to share. This took place at Waterford Union High School in Waterford, Wisconsin. I am looking forward to the students' reactions tomorrow when they come into school (we hung them all after they left for the day- so, it will be a surprise). Thank you so much for starting this project and this is going viral. We are currently making more hearts to bring the idea to a state convention the students are attending next week."

EMBROIDERY FLOSS ORGANIZERS
ANYONE who has EVER worked with embroidery floss knows what a floss nest looks like... or at least that is what I call them. It's the mess of floss that inevitably gets created when you are working with a lot of colors, pulling a little of this color, removing 2 strands from 6 strands of floss, or the snippets of thread that are left over that are too long to throw away but you might not need again for a bit.
They say necessity is the mother of invention, but in this case it is also the mom to purrrre cuteness!
Grab a couple pieces of card stock and before you know it, you'll have a litter of colorful kitties to keep you company while you are working and at the same time, stop those nasty tangled heaps of embroidery floss from occurring.
