Maybe this has happened to you: you head out to run errands in a super cute scarf (or headband, or mitts or any other beautiful handmade item), and you get stopped by someone who asks where you got your beautiful accessory! Well this is perfect, because not only did you MAKE it, but you make and sell lots of things! You dig in your bag, trying to find a loose business card (or maybe you don’t carry business cards) and can’t find one. Ugh! You swear you will have business cards next time someone asks.
Well this adorable little crochet business card pouch might help you with this problem. Make a few of these pouches and put one in your car, or in your bag or in your pocket and you will be sure to get every sale and every lead that you run in to.

Good morning everyone!
If you have been following the last few months, you may know I have been smitten with chunky crochet projects, and have made several: this 30-Minute Cowl, this Ric-Rac Scarf and this Granny Stitch Hat are a few of my favorites. I am still loving chunky yarn, but since spring is around the corner, I decided I need to switch my focus to projects that aren’t meant to keep you warm. When I tried out the 100% wool super chunky Tuff Puff yarn by Knit Picks a few weeks ago, I knew it would make a perfect rug. It is so soft and squishy under your feet, and the colors are brilliant and beautiful. This super chunky crochet rug would look so pretty in a bathroom or kitchen, or even in a child’s room.
What you need:
-Super Chunk yarn (Tuff Puff by Knit Picks in Mint, Silver and Conch)
-Size P Hook
This rug uses basic stitches, and because the yarn is so chunky and thick, this rug works up in a snap. Also, the size is easily customizable, and you can make more (or less) rounds to change the size.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
I am guest posting at Pretty Provdence today, so be sure to click over and get the free crochet pattern!
Be sure to share your Super Chunky Crochet Rug (and all your other projects!) in the Whistle and Ivy Facebook group. I would love to see your WIPs!

Today I am excited to share a fun project I have been working on. A few fellow bloggers and I have joined together for a crochet blog hop, and each of us have a fun pillow crochet pattern for you! I am amazed at the talent of these women, so be sure to check out the fun free crochet patterns they have for you. Mine is a crochet geo stripe pillow, and it is so easy to make!
Geo Stripe Pillow
What you need:
- Worsted Weight Yarn in 3 colors (Red Heart Soft)
- Size I Hook
- Yarn Needle
- Old Pillowcase
- Basic Sewing Supplies
Gauge: 6 sts=2″
1. Hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Hdc 63. Sk next st. Hdc in last st (a decrease). Turn. (65 sts)
2. Ch 1.
Work 2 decreases. Hdc in each remaining st. (63 sts) Turn.
3. Ch 1.
Hdc in same st. Hdc 60. Work one decrease. Turn. (62 st)
Continue the pattern, working 1 decrease at the end, and 2 decreases at the beginning after turning. Your decreases will all be along the same side, making the slanted triangle edge. Work a total of 43 rows.
This is the same pattern at the solid triangle, but you will be alternating your yarn colors. Work with one color for 4 rows, then use your second color, alternating in the same decrease pattern.
Line up your two triangles, with the flat and long sides together. Make sure one triangle is upside down, with the last stitch meeting the beginning row of the other. Using a yarn needle and some yarn, sew them together while they lay flat, sewing through the top loops, and hiding the stitches from the other side.
Lay your sewn pillow top on top of the pillowcase and cut the length to fit, leaving a seam allowance. The pattern was written to fit the exact width of a pillowcase so check your gauge.
Sew around your pillowcase leaving an opening on one side.
Next, using your needle and a length or yarn, hand stitch around the pillow. It doesn’t need to be too tight of stitching. Stop where at the space you left un-sewn previously.
Now you can stuff your pillow. Grab small chunks for the best result, it will be less lumpy this way, but will take a bit longer to fill.
Once it’s stuffed, hand sew the opening shut, starting where you left off. Tie the two ends together with a tight and sturdy knot.
