An Idea...

Snickerdoodles.
So, I recently started crocheting!   The granny square in the picture is the second full granny square I made. (I started many others, but they turned out more like a tangled mess.  And ended up in the floor.  Shh!)  I've always wanted to learn, and I couldn't be happier that I've finally gotten around to it.  It's so relaxing! <3

But, out my newfound love for crocheting, I had an idea...
I thought it would be super fun to do a video tutorial teaching you all something that I love...plastic canvas!  I just adore plastic canvas projects.  They're super easy, and go by so quickly! (Unless you're working on something big, which can be quite time-consuming!)
And what would I be teaching you to make, you ask?

Something really easy and cute...spool magnets!
Peanut Butter Cookies
I just thought I'd toss my little idea out there!  Hopefully it's something you guys would like to learn!
Have a lovely weekend, dearies! <3
XXOO, Allie.

I love crocheting, but I just started teaching myself how to knit and I think I prefer it actually.

I've done plastic canvas once but it was a really long time ago. It was fun though. :)

I love this. Those spool magnets are super cute. I've tried learning to crochet several times. and it never turns out right!

Oh so cute! Yay you've been updating again! Just went through and read your last few posts :)

Oh, do you still want me to work on your header design? I think that project just kinda fell apart but we can go back to it and maybe if you have some fresh new ideas or want me to rework some old ones, I'd love to :)

Wooooooooo!

Haha my Papa used to make things with plastic canvas. ALL the time once he retired! I mean, he made things for every single holiday imaginable, he made things for our teachers (pen/pencil holders, kleenex holders), he made coasters, EVERYTHING. And gave so many things away to people, haha. He was a plastic canvas MACHINE.

Ahh those spool magnets look so cool! When I first started crocheting, my squares looked like a tangled mess too, now its just like second nature! xoxo
