Crafty Sassy: My Projects Update

Hey Dearies! It’s been a long time since I have finally posted a blog for Crafty Sassy, but I really wanted to give you guys an update on how far I’ve come since I first started crochet back in 2017.

I’ve tried some different stuff than what I normally go for and since I’m working full time, I’ve haven’t felt like I’ve done a lot of projects than I normally do. Like I wanted to do a temperature blanket for last year and never end up starting it.

Plus I still like maybe 5 projects that are still ongoing or just not finished. You see, a lot of people don’t understand that you have to be in the mood for crocheting or doing anything crafty. I usually just crochet when my anxiety starts to bother me.

So, here are my projects that are currently ongoing:

  • Cat Couch – Sadly, I’ve been working on this one for over 2 years. I started making it for my brother’s cat DJ, it’s a Christmas green, I want to say. It’s also something that I have to make pieces and sew them together.
  • Towel Toppers – I’ve always got a ton of these hanging around. I don’t like doing them all at once, but I have 2 totes filled with all my completed ones, they are just waiting for a craft fair for me to do.
  • Bags – I have 2 bags that I crocheted, just need to assemble them and create a strap.
  • Blankets – I have one that I’m working on for work and then my second one is just a simple scrap blanket.

For the ones that I’m currently working on, my goal is to finish them before the end of this year. I don’t mind having more than one project going, but at some point, I would like to not have a few going on at the same time.

Anyway, since I’m not sure of how far back I haven’t shown you guys, but I’m posting everything just in case I haven’t.

I actually made this for a co-worker of mine. I literally kinda just winged it and I think it didn’t come out too bad.
Candy cane mug cozies were a lot of fun to make, but assembling them wasn’t as fun. I actually made these for a co-worker who does the whole craft fair. I figured why not.
A baby sweater for one of my mom’s friends. I love to make stuff for babies, it’s a lot of fun and there are a lot of ideas for it!
This was the beginning to my endless amounts of baby hats and booties that I have made. I made a bunch last year and those have happened to fill a tote or two.
One of the few projects that I actually made for myself. I think it came out okay, wasn’t my best, but it is so warm!
My daughter has an American Girl doll knock off that she wanted a sweater for. I don’t think I made the sleeves long enough, but it was pretty fun to make.
For the last job I worked at, I made a star for all of my co workers for out Christmas tree and I loved how they came out, but it was a lot of sewing in ends.
This farm blanket was actually for my nephew. It was my best job connecting the squares together since I wanted to use yarn from my stash, instead of buying more yarn. Overall, I liked how it came out, also making the faces for the animals was pretty fun too!
Another blanket for my other nephew. He loved Spiderman, at the time, and with the limited time that I had, this was the quickest pattern I was able to complete in time before Christmas. Was a blast to make tho!
I love Snoopy and Woodstock, no Woodstock isn’t in the picture, but I did make him. This is a Christmas project that I worked so hard on it and to this day, we have been using every Christmas.
I was attempting to find a pattern that I could make to sell at a craft fair and I figured this would be a cool idea to try, but I didn’t like how you had to button it from the back instead how it normally is. The good news is that I gave it to my daughter, and she used it for one of her baby dolls.
I was trying something different and new with this one, I’m not sure if I came up with this or if I used a pattern I found, but my daughter ended up claiming it as her own.
I know. I know, you probably see where I messed up. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize it until after the fact, but I honestly figure this would happen sooner or later. I really loved the colors for this one tho!
Testing different patterns for baby booties and hats. Still was trying to find a happy medium for me to stock them up for a craft fair or something of the sort.
Another baby hat testing, I wanted to explore different styles of baby hats.
Like I said, I have a lot of different baby hats on this list, but I love the different colors!
I tested some face mask patterns too, especially at the beginning of 2020. Wanted to find a face mask that looked like Katana’s from Mortal Kombat, but of course in red!
Best crochet bag I’ve ever met! It carried so much yarn!
I loved making this blanket, I also loved the colors! This was also a shell stitch, which I loved trying!
I will say this was my best baby set I’ve ever done. This was actually my 2nd attempt at making a baby set, but I always love a challenge!
This was a mug cozies that I made for my aunt. Her dog passed away that year and for Christmas, I made it for her and she absolutely loved it!
Finished baby blanket, really loved the blue and green colors!
I made this for my niece, who loved Elsa at the time. A lot of yarn used, but it was such a warm snuggie!

Another snuggie that I made for my nephew, and it was super warm!

And there you have it! Those were just a few of the projects that I have completed in the past few years. Don’t worry, next Tuesday it won’t be as boring!
