8 Quick and Easy Steps to Make a Child's Poncho
It's finally here! S[romg! I've been wanting to crochet my little girl a poncho for the longest time. So last week was the week. This is my own design and I posted it on http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Crochet-a-Childs-Poncho-8-Quick-and-Easy/ because I've been trying to keep my own designs in one place.

"Washcloth Bunnies" or "Boo Boo Bunnies"
They are super easy to make!
1. Follow this pattern to make the washcloths or grab any washcloth from your kitchen or bathroom.
To Fold into Bunnies:
(I'll take pictures the next time I fold some.)
1. Lay your washcloth out flat.
2. Roll from the bottom right corner to the top left corner. (Like a crescent roll.)
3. Fold the roll in half.
4. Tie a ribbon around the middle.
How cute are these?
You can use them as Easter decorations (or gifts) and as "Boo Boo Bunnies". Boo Boo Bunnies - put an ice cube inside the center of the washcloth and use for your little one's boo boo's.
Soon I'll have some in my ETSY shop if you'd rather I make them for you.
Have fun and leave me a comment if you'd like.

Make Your Own Crochet Basket
(NOTE: The below pattern is for the red, white, & blue basket)
** Draft **
First off, I'll have this red, white, and blue basket in my ETSY shop soon if you'd prefer I make it for you. If you want to give it a try, I have drafted the instructions below.
Hook - 4.0
Yarn - I used 100% cotton. But if you want a really sturdy basket, use 2 strands of 100% cotton or something heavier like wool.
- I start my crochet baskets off with my crochet coaster pattern. Follow this pattern for the bottom of the basket.
- Once you get the bottom finished, single stitch all the way around, but only grab the back loop of the row. You will soon see that grabbing the back loop only makes the bottom ridge and begins the sides of the basket.
- If this is your first basket, you may choose to make it in one color instead of switching colors as I have done. If you do decide to switch colors, there isn't any magic to this, just change colors when you think it will look best.
- Single stitch all the way around, grabbing both loops and keep going. Do not slip stitch -- just keep going until you get the height you want.
It's really that easy!
