This week’s features include how to make a Dr. Pepper chocolate cake, how to make hammered wire earrings, how to make a floral embroidery hoop wreath, free crochet pattern for lightweight shawl and free sewing pattern for girls peasant dress.
I don’t know about you, but today, our “winter” high was practically 80 degrees. For some of you, this is Summer, but here in Florida, it’s pretty typical, so I am in full Spring mode. Enjoy these finds!
In case you missed it, I also shared a casual St. Patrick’s Day outfit idea.
On my EyeLoveKnots blog, I shared a free crochet pattern for how to crochet an easy corner to corner a leprechaun hat washcloth.
Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake (free recipe) from The Kitchen is my Playground:
This cake looks so soft, moist, and delicious. I feel like once I try the chocolate icing, I will want to add it to all of my chocolate cakes! My husband doesn’t drink soda so perhaps I will try this for our next family dinner in case he doesn’t go for it. Hmm…
Hammered Chandelier Earrings (free jewelry DIY) from Crafts Unleashed:
The gold tone finding you see right there in the center is made with a jig. I want to get a jig!! You can do so many awesome things with them. I love the sweet little green bead on the bottom – this screams Spring to me!
Floral Embroidery Hoop Wreath from Craftaholics Anonymous:
Confession: I am in love with this new trend, but I have been too intimidated to try making one myself! Shame on me. Linda shares a photo tutorial, and it seems so quick and easy to put together.
Spring Leaves Poncho (free crochet pattern) from Be a Crafter:
This poncho has been on my list for quite some time. The leave pattern is just incredible – perfect for Spring or Fall depending on your fiber choice. Work it up in a solid color, or use a fun cake yarn with the subtle color changes.
Border Print Peasant Dress for Spring (free sewing pattern) from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom:
This dress is gorgeous! Though just a peasant dress, the fabric choice really makes it. This free pattern has many different versions (long sleeves, bell sleeves, ruffled, etc.), so definitely stop by to check them out, and don’t forget to thank Jamie for all her hard work!
