Hello again 🙂
I have something easy for you. Spring is here and I am always looking for new projects and ideas. I look for things that do not require much time to make and I can quickly see a result that I am happy with. So, if you are like me I have 5 easy projects to make with all your granny squares!
One of the first few things I learned when I started crochet was a granny square. From that one simple pattern, I got inspired to create a few different but useful things. I love them! I crochet granny squares while I am in search for my next project or because I like to relax. Yes, I use crochet as therapy and since I started it, I have not stopped! Sometimes, my hubby asks me what I am making and I honestly have nothing in mind. I just like it so much 🙂
SO, I thought to post a few of my own project ideas and give you some inspiration. They are all simple projects that even beginners can achieve effortlessly. They are fun; you can use any color or type of yarn you like; and they are so easy to make! I hope you like them too.
1. Crochet Purses
I make lots of purses and I like to combine many different colors. I think a purse is always needed in a girl’s bag, and you can never have too many. It is a great idea for a gift too.
2. Lucky Charms
I made these for Christmas to give to friends and family. A small little charm for good luck 🙂 You can’t not go wrong with that!!
3. Baby Blanket
This baby blanket was made for my little nephew and I truly loved making it. I adore this combination of colors and the result was perfect.
4. Crochet Bag for Girls
My daughter absolutely adored this bag when I presented it to her. She carries it around and it is such a unique gift that we always get people asking where we got it from! It can be done for an adult as well; just make the granny square bigger.
5. Simple Coasters
And if all of the above have been done, and you still have spare granny squares, then why not use them as coasters. They will complement your lovely kitchen/living room area and you can also give them as a house-warming gift!
I hope you got some ideas…Stay tuned, as I will be making more things with granny squares!
