Faux Stained Glass Suncatcher

Happy Wednesday everyone! It has been mild and wonderful here (except for a couple days when we got some much-needed rain)! I love springtime, and we have been spending lots of time outside. I have been digging my vegetable garden by hand because I am nervous about digging up the sprinkler system with a tiller. But it has been a wonderful excuse to be outside and get some exercise. With these beautiful and sunny days, I have been wanting to make a suncatcher to hang in my kitchen window. I am sharing this easy tutorial for this faux-stained glass suncatcher today at PinkWhen!

Faux Stained Glass Suncatcher- Bring the springtime sunshine in your home with this easy suncatcher tutorial.

Bitty Bow Sandals Video Release

The Bitty Bow Baby Sandals video is finally up! 
I am so sorry that you guys had to muddle through that pattern (In my defense, it was one of my very first patterns). I have been meaning to go back and rewrite it for a while, but it just sat on the back burner untouched.  I am sorry for any frustration it may have caused any of you!

 Free Crochet Pattern - Bitty Bow Baby Sandals. Adorable spring and summertime booties for baby!

The strap is MUCH less confusing ( I am hoping), and I simplified the heel as well. As always, you can comment or email me with any questions. 
It is nice to have my little model this time around though! Chubby baby feet are just awesome.  

Get the newly-revised written pattern here, or you can go straight to the video here

Happy crocheting!
