Hexagon Flower Table Runner

Have you ever started a project, put it away and found it years later? When looking through my bags of crochet stuff, I came across these cute little flower hexagons I made back in 2015. For the life of me I cannot remember what I was planning on doing with them. They were made with a yarn that has been discontinued (don't you hate that?) and I only had 75 yards left of the main color, so it would be hard to make more to match these ones. 

So I have 65 little hexagons, and what to do with them was the big question. I searched the internet for ideas but came up empty handed. I spent one week looking at them in the bag and the next week laying them out to see what I could do with them.

Finally after a few weeks I came up with:                                                                                                                                                                                  The Hexagon Flower Table Runner 


These colorful flower hexagon motifs were done using double crochet (dc) and single crochet (sc) stitches. Each motif takes a small quantity of yarn making it a great stash buster project that works up quickly. The great thing about this pattern is that you can make this table runner any size by adding more hexagon motifs or using less.  

So grab that stash bag and a crochet hook or those unfinished projects and make this a crochet day!           

Have a hooky day! Lynne

Flower Coin Purse

We are midway through the month of May! 

As I was looking on Facebook I came across this quote by @anxiousandy about the month of May, "I just realized why this month is called May… it may rain, it may snow… it may be 90 degrees, it may be 20 degrees", this is so true, the weather has been unpredictable this month. But the positive is that the flowers are in bloom no matter the weather!

This week I am sharing with you one of my favorite crochet flower projects:

                                  The Flower Coin Purse

These cute little coin purses are made using basic crochet stitches with a few special stitches, making them a quick and easy small crochet project that can be made in a day. They are great stash buster projects since they take small amounts of yarn.

Coin purses can be handy little purses that not only hold your spare change but they also work great for lip balm, ear buds, gum, and other small items that get lost in your handbag.

If you are looking for a unique and practical item that makes a great gift, then the flower coin purse is a must.

Have a hooky day! Lynne
