    Owl Doily Pattern

    Your owl doily is very pretty as well as your other doilies!
  8. This is a holder for a candy cane that can be either a Christmas tree ornament or a package decoration. It is a nice fast, last minute gift to make for a co-worker or friend. Size when finished: height 7", width 2". If you have never crocheted using beads, this is an easy project to learn how to do it. http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/home-decor/beaded-candy-cane-holder-decoration/38942

    How to start a website

    You might want to consider a place like ecrater.com. They offer a free storefront. It is very easy to set up. There are no fees other than the cost to process payments through Paypal or Google wallet. I have a domain name that I have forwarded to my eCrater store. I have had a store there for 4 years and I sell craft patterns plus my own original designs. I am very happy with the sales I have made there. I think that this might be easier than making up a website if what you want to do is sell your inventory online.

    please help looking for annie's opossum pattern

    The June 1984 Annie's Newsletter only has an advertisement for the Opossum pattern on the back cover. The actual pattern was a leaflet available from Annie's Attic back then. You had to order it directly. So somebody out there might have an original available. It is a cute pattern.
  11. Create a lighted Christmas tree door decoration to greet your guests as they arrive to share the holidays. Battery operated LED lights provide the sparkle and worsted weight yarn provides the colors of Christmas. http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/home-decor/christmas-tree-lighted-door-decoration-/34127
  12. I wanted to design something useful for the kitchen. I use my kitchen scissors all the time so I made a pattern for this cute little scissors holder. It calls for any type of worsted weight yarn and plastic from a milk jug. The plastic forms a pocket that keeps the scissors from slipping through. click here for the pattern at Craftsys

    Need pattern for Christmas tree skirt

    Here is a link to a Ripple version at Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/round-ripple-tree-skirt I just finished designing a pattern for a pretty Christmas tree skirt. Although I designed the pattern with a slit, it can be made without one by joining the original chain. http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/other/christmas-tree-skirt-crochet-pattern/28471
