Little Waves Crochet Towel Applique

A raindrop shower curtain and blue paint set the theme, and the Little Waves Crochet Rug was the first project to go in there – and now the Little Waves Crochet Towel Applique has joined the party!

Bonbon Kisses Crochet Pouch

I’ve always wanted to give Lion Brand’s Bonbons yarn packs a try. They’re just so cute, with all the tiny colorful skeins of yarn! And I finally merged that idea, with my idea for a colorful little pouch with one of a “kiss clasp” metal frame. And the Bonbon Kisses Crochet Pouch was born!
