Know Where to Find a Pattern?

I decided that we'd make things more personal this year for Christmas and make a lot of our gifts. I enjoy crafting and I know that CJ does too so it made sense to enjoy time together while creating gifts for loved ones. My top two projects are these. Or at least I hope that they will be. I've been searching for FREE patterns all evening, anyone know where to find them?

These are not my girls BUT mine will look adorable in these hats don't you think??


I did manage to find a pattern for these using an old pair of crocs for the sole, I'm thinking the generic kind. I'd really like to figure out a way of using denim for the sole I think.

CJ is planning on making these for her gift giving

Bath bombs but I think we'll try some in candy cane shape, the snowball ones will have a bit of glitter and snowflakes.


Bath Jelly, I think I can round up some cookie dough scent bubble bath to make it with.Snow Cone kits . . . that is if we get any snow!

That's the plan for this weekend. What are you making for gifts this year??

I don't where you can find patterns but surely you can get some generic Crocs at Giant Tiger! I lurrve that bootie idea. The hats are awesomely cute. You're very clever. We're making gifts around here, too.

Are you on Ravelry? There are tons of crochet hat patterns on there. I am looking through them for you but I haven't found the exact ones yet. Do you have a link to the site where you found the pictures of the hats you posted. Maybe that will help me narrow it down.

I just printed off some patterns for you that are similar but not quite the same. I think we are both at the same event on Sunday so I can give them to you then.

Thanks Tamara, see you Sunday! I'll have to dig through my things and see if I can find my crochet hooks and make a trip to pick up some yarn.

I do a search for free crochet patterns. The hats are adorable. Hope it all worked out for you on the items.
