  1. Well I thought I should start the 2020 thread for the mini Christmas stocking drive for Warmth for Warriors (W4W). I've been heading up this charity stocking drive for several years now here at Crochetville. Each year people crochet, knit, or sew mini handmade Christmas stockings for the troops. Stockings should be around 6 inches long and any pattern style or color is accepted. Stockings that are a little smaller or larger are okay too. The miniature stockings are filled at W4W Headquarters with soaps, toiletries, and candies for overseas to our troops as a little Christmas gifts. The littl
  2. Hello, It's really nice to meet everyone who shares my passion for crochet! I have been crocheting since I was 9 years old. For the past several years I have considered myself a "binge crocheter." As a single mom and middle school teacher, crochet time has been a luxury. It wasn't until I had been crocheting for 34 years off-and-on that the global pandemic led me to branch out creatively to try new and different crochet stitches, styles, and project types and I realized how much I really enjoy growing my skills, stitch-types, and diversifying the types of projects I tackle. I hav
  3. Warmth for Warriors organization is again requesting for crafters to help crochet, knit, or sew mini handmade Christmas stockings for the troops. Stockings should be around 6 inches long and any pattern style or color is accepted. Stockings that are a little smaller or larger are okay too. The miniature stockings will be filled at W4W Headquarters with soaps, toiletries, and candies for overseas to our troops as a little Christmas gifts. The little stockings filled with goodies are a wonderful way to say thank you to our troops and give them a little Christmas cheer during the holidays. W
  4. Hi Crochetville! I'm doing a crochet-related project for my senior year of high school and I could definitely use some help as I'm starting to run out of time. I'm looking for individuals to send me newly or recently crocheted blankets. These blankets will be donated to my local crisis nursery which functions as a safe haven for children in rough situations. The kids there range in age from birth to 12 years old, so baby blankets as well as child sized blankets would be much appreciated! I have more information on the project in a google doc here. My goal is to have at least 10 blankets b
  5. I have been crocheting more dishcloths for an upcoming charity fundraiser. Here is a new pattern I just tried called The Ship's Helm. This is a super fast and easy dishcloth pattern. Here are three cloths I did in the pattern. Then I crocheted 2 star dishcloths using My Star Dishcloth pattern. These were done with different bits of leftover cotton scraps I had on hand.
  6. Here is my first Christmas stockings I crocheted for the Warmth for Warriors 2016 sock drive. These 6 inch mini Christmas socks will be filled with little toiletries and goodies for the troops. They are given out as a little gift for the troops at Christmas. You can read more about the drive and join in if anyone is interested at the link above.
  7. Let this rib-tickling, crazy cute Spring Love Bug come into your life for a laugh every time you see him! He is super easy to make. You can also give him away to someone in need of some cheer or to your favorite child or charity. You will find the free pattern here: http://funmigurumiandkidsstuff.blogspot.com/2016/03/funmigurumi-stripers-spring-love-bug.html#. Enjoy!
  8. Here are two colorful Mother Bears I crocheted. These bears were in honor of Ellen who was a long time supporter of the Mother Bear Project. I crocheted the skirt on after the bear's body was done using this tutorial. I used I love this yarn in sherbets stripe which works out well to make a self-striping body.
  9. I'm making a donation to The Royal British Legion (a veterans' support charity) for every sale this weekend. Click here for the pattern: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/192202919
  10. Hello, I recently launched a new website called Giving Artfully. Giving Artfully (www.givingartfully.com) is a web platform that connects crafters with organizations in need of handcrafted goods. Based on my own desire to contribute my skills/talents to support organizations of interest to me, I wanted to create a more effective or efficient way to connect with such opportunities . This led me to the idea of creating a platform that benefits both the crafters and recipients/organizations: Crafters have a “one-stop shop” to find volunteer opportunities to meet their skill sets and in
  11. The Warmth for Warriors is kicking off their 2013 Mini Christmas Stocking Project. Their goal is 2000 mini socks for the troops. They fill the mini stockings with a small bar of soap, shampoo, and/or body wash and are sending them to the troops as a little Christmas gift. You can crochet, knit or sew the stockings which need to be about 6 inches long. Here are a few samples of some of the socks I have crocheted and sewn for the drive. Here is the recycled denim stocking tutorial if you like to make some of them. So if you are interested in joining us in this drive, any help would be gr

  18. In an effort to help those less fortunate than us, I am looking for people to dig into your hearts and even deeper into your yarn stash. I am looking for volunteers to make granny squares, to be pieced together, to make afghans for charity. Also anyone how would like to donate hats, booties burp clothes and any other baby items for hospitals would be very much appreciated. I have a few charities... in mind, but would love any ideas for more. The thought of one person making a whole blanket can be daunting, but if each of us made one or two squares, the task would take minimal effort. Of cours
