New Pattern Alert! Textured Christmas Tree Pillow

Textured Christmas Tree Pillow crochet pattern now available!

Textured-Christmas-Tree-pillow-crochet-pattern-by-Darleen-Hopkins-webThe Textured Christmas Tree Pillow crochet pattern is now available.   This is the second tree shaped pillow pattern in the Christmas Tree Pillows set. The pattern is written for heavy worsted, aran weight yarn.  I used Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice for the sample.  Adjusting the yarn will result in a different sized pillow.  Just be sure to use a hook that yields a tight stitch.  You don’t want stuffing creeping out of your pillows.

New Pattern Alert! Striped Christmas Tree Pillow

Striped Christmas Tree Pillow crochet pattern now available!

Striped Christmas Tree Pillow crochet pattern by Darleen HopkinsThe Striped Christmas Tree Pillow crochet pattern is now available.   This is the first of at least two Christmas Tree pillow patterns.  I hope to share the second one with you soon. The pattern is written for heavy worsted, aran weight yarn.  I used Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice for the sample.  Adjusting the yarn will yield different sized pillows.  Just be sure to use a hook that yields a tight stitch.  You don’t want stuffing creeping out of your pillows.  This pillow also looks great crocheted in one color and decorated with buttons.  OR for a large pillow, crochet with two strands held together.

Christmas in September?? and Holiday Bibs: Santa, Snowman, Elf and Gingerbread Baby

Celebrate Christmas in September with New Holiday Bib Patterns

I live in a cute, small town. We have a well preserved town square with lots of specialty shops surrounding an old courthouse. It seems like every month there is a festival or a parade or some other hometown event. It is not unusual to see someone sitting on a bench in town playing a banjo, guitar or harmonica. And since we are located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, we have a great combination of southern and mountain small town charm. Something straight out of a Hallmark movie, literally.

This past week, Hallmark has been filming a Christmas special in our town. A beautiful white building with a gorgeous front porch, located across from where I work, has been covered in fake snow all week. Last week I saw some of the crew carving snow drifts out of blocks of white foam. And every day when I drive home via the square I get this feeling that something isn’t quite right. Then I hits me, oh right, the Christmas decorations in September and the signs that say, “to set” and “base camp” on every corner. And now they have decorated for nighttime scenes too!  This is the second time Hallmark has filmed here.  It is fun to see the filming process and we are happy to host them.

Christmas in September is a little odd, unless you are a crafter.  As crafters we have to get started early on all our holiday gifts and decorations.

Christmas Bib Set Crochet Pattens by Darleen HopkinsFor all you holiday crocheters, I am please to announce my latest patterns, a set of holiday bibs for baby.  A Christmas Elf, a Gingerbread Baby, a Button-Nose Snowman (my favorite) and of course, Santa.  Each is available for individual purchase or as collection with a discount in Crochet Christmas, The Bib Collection.  If you have a heavy drooler (like one of my boys was) make yours in cotton or cotton blend yarn for maximum absorbancy.  Or stitch in acrylic yarn for easy care.  Either way, baby will be super festive for all you holiday events.
