Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich
~ free crochet pattern ~

Hi, friends! 🙂 It’s been a long while since I have posted a pattern, and I really do apologize. Life has been super busy with three young kids (including a newborn), and I am honestly annoyed with myself for neglecting my blog. I have also recently moved and am still in the middle of unpacking. However, family comes first, so I think it is safe to say I will be on hiatus. I am taking some time to refocus my mind, regain my health and prioritize my family. I would really love to get back to releasing a pattern every month or two, but that likely won’t happen until my little ones grow older and become more independent. That said, I WILL try my very best to continue designing and writing crochet patterns. It is my favorite hobby after all and I sure hope to continue.

Today, I am sharing a simple (free) crochet pattern for a vanilla ice cream sandwich. Did you know August 2nd marks the National Ice Cream Sandwich Day? I thought it would be perfect to release this pattern today. I made this for my little one’s play kitchen, for when he loves to open up his ‘cafe’ and ‘sell’ all the crochet food I’ve given him!

Basket of Carrots
~ free crochet pattern ~

A few days ago, I published a post about The Traveling Tu Family, which is a FREE crochet pattern I’ve designed exclusively for Melody’s Makings. Since then, my little one has been telling me that the bunnies need a basket to store their carrots. Because, you know, they can’t just leave it on the ground (the carrots will be dirty, Mommy!). So here we are, a free crochet pattern for a little basket of carrots!!

Jumbo Pumpkin

It’s pumpkin season! I had a dream that I had my very own pumpkin patch in my backyard, only it was all crocheted pumpkins! So, when I woke up (back to reality!), I thought, why not make a more jumbo-sized pumpkin since I’ve only made tiny little ones so far. What do you say? Yes? Keep reading!

Chinese New Year Clementine
~ free crochet pattern ~

Chinese New Year (CNY) is only a couple of weeks away and I can’t wait to celebrate it with my family! Much like Christmas or Thanksgiving, there’s always lots of yummy food during this holiday. But of course, the best part is the little red packets, which contains lucky money 🙂  And so, since I’ve already worked on a few projects for Valentine’s Day, how could I forget about CNY?

When I was young, my parents would always buy a few clementines (or mandarin oranges…or tangerines…? they’re pretty much the same thing, right? OK, let’s move on!) and display it on the dinner table as decoration. The clementines are traditional symbols of abundance and good fortune.
