The world has been in chaos in last few months, but I have really turned my attention towards yarn. I have always said that crochet has always grounded me, and has been there for me through the best and worst times of my life.
This summer I have focused a lot on functional crochet patterns. With school starting back, I thought I would wish Summer 2020 goodbye with a Blessed and a Mess Summer Pattern Bundle. The following 5 designs (technically 6 patterns) are put into one listing together at a discount-practically getting two patterns for free!

In June I released my first wall hanging, the Cactus and Flower Wall Hanging!
During quarantine, I also painted my craft room, got a couple new furniture sets, and made a blanket.
At the beginning of July, I revamped my Crochet 4th of July Wreath. This was a pattern I wrote a couple of years ago, that I just loved so much I thought deserved more attention. The digital PDF has a design upgrade and more pictures for the tutorial.
At the end of June, I sent out my Southern Charm Dish Towel pattern to pattern testers, and got some wonderful feedback returned. I can’t lie…this pattern is probably my favorite that I’ve made this summer. When I made these, I even went as far as to go out and buy a custom dish towel ladder to display multiple dishtowels in my kitchen.
The Granny Mug Rug was my next pattern, coming just in time for my new living room furniture. These work up so fast and I think will make great for any markets I do this fall. (Fingers crossed that there is at least a couple out there for me!)
Maybe it’s because I’m always sitting my keys down and walking off without them, but when August started, I just knew I had to crochet a lanyard and keychain set for back to school. Fun Fact: This was my first thread project! This pattern is a 2 for 1, with a PDF for each the keychain and the lanyard.
All of these patterns are available for purchase for only $10 on my Etsy. Included are 5 beautifully designed PDFs that you can make any time of the year.
If you bought all of these separately, then you are saving 50% by purchasing through this bundle instead!
As we all transition into fall, I hope that everyone stays safe and creative going forward.
Also, if you are the praying type, please send one up for all the school staff that you know to have a safe and successful school year.
