Pom poms add just the right amount of wimzy to crochet projects and lately I've been using pom poms to create a bunch of different things! A Puffball Gnome, a Pom Pom Cat, Pom Pom Panda Ears, and now Pom Pom Cat Ears! I also have many many, more ideas for pom poms, so keep a close eye on my website and social media to see what I come up with next!

Samhain Voodoo Doll Free Crochet Pattern

Hello! It's Halloween-time and I have a new, free and fun pattern for ya'll! A few years ago, my nephew, Zia asked me to make him a doll inspired by a character from one of his favorite movies. The actual character is very scary looking but I wanted Zia's doll to be adorable, not scary. I started with my Fibro Voodoo Doll pattern and changed a few things. I made his head larger and by adding 18mm safety eyes and expressive eye brows, the doll turned out sad but adorable and Zia loves him. He's a lot of fun to make and I think he is the perfect Halloween doll! Scroll down for the free pattern.

Pom Pom Cat

Hello! Superstitions want to make us believe to be wary or even scared of black cats, but I think black cats are beautiufl and my Ziggy is the sweetest cat that I've ever met. He has become a huge part of our family and he has inspired me to crochet several things, like a cat hat and lacy cat ears and I have a feeling that he will continue to inspire me. Now, I have created a cute cat made out of pom poms! Scroll down for the free pattern!

Sweet Cake Shawl Free Pattern

Hello! Lately I have had an obsession with two things: triangle shawls and cake yarn...this obsession has been fun and I am loving so many of the cake yarns so far. I love how they change colors and I love all of the color ways. It's so much fun to play around with these yarn and while I was playing around one afternoon, I came up with this quick, simple and easy pattern. Since then, I have tested it with a Caron Cake, a Premiere Sweet Roll and a Bernat Pop and I think this pattern works wonderfully with all 3 of these yarns! I love this pattern so much and I hope ya'll do too! Scroll down for the free pattern, The Sweet Cake Shawl.
