Reindeer Butt Ornament Crochet Pattern

reindeer butt ornament

Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving weekend? Ours was nice and quiet, and I got a lot of crocheting done. The tree is up, and the nutcrackers are all standing at attention on the mantle, so now I have to start wrapping presents. There are still quite a few more small ones that I need to make but only one big one left to go. Hopefully I’ll make it in time!

One of the designs I did over Thanksgiving weekend is a Reindeer Butt Ornament. It looks so cute hanging on the tree!

Ornament measures approximately 5” tall (including tail).

Crocheter’s Christmas Wish List

WISH LIST

Thanksgiving is over, the kitchen is clean, and there are enough leftovers that you don’t have to worry about cooking the rest of the weekend. This is when I usually put up my tree, simply because the long weekend gave me extra time to decorate. With a full-time job and taking care of children, time was at a premium in my house. Now I can relax and put up the Christmas tree whenever I want, but I think I’ll do it today anyway. It wouldn’t seem like Thanksgiving weekend without it.

So what will you be crocheting this weekend with all the extra time you’ll have? I’m still working on a couple of gifts, and then I’ll work on more stuffed animals and hats to go to the children at the women’s shelter.

We’ve worked hard this year making all those handmade gifts, so now it’s time to sit down and decide what we want for Christmas.  I’ve put together a list from some of the internet’s top crocheters. You might want to print this out and (accidentally) leave it on the kitchen table for your significant other to see. 😊

Some of these links are affiliate links. If you choose to purchase after clicking a link, I may receive a commission at no extra cost to you.

1. Patterns and Books

Personally, my yarn collection comes and goes, but it’s simply a supply I need to practice my craft. Patterns on the other hand are my weakness. I still have books from 40 years ago, and I still make many of those designs. Every time we move, I purge more pattern books, but there are some that I just cannot part with.

There are so many talented designers in the world of crochet, and I am proud to be one of them. Check out my patterns on Ravelry with a Cyber Week Sale – Buy 1 Get 1 Free on all patterns and ebooks. No coupon code required. https://www.ravelry.com/redeem/my-fingers-fly-designs?sale=296868

The sale will run through November 30, 2022.

2. Yarn/Yarn Store Gift Card

There is no limit to the jokes people make about the size of their yarn stashes! My yarn collection is considerable, but I try to keep it under control by purchasing only what I need for the next project. Hey, it’s not my fault that none of my available yarns are suitable for the next project! 😉

Like designers, there are many yarn companies from which to choose. These are two of my favorite:

Mission Inn, Riverside – Bald Eagle Crochet Potholder – Labor Day Sale

Here I am, sitting at the airport waiting to start another California adventure. This time I will be going to Riverside and staying at the historic Mission Inn. It was built as a boarding house in 1876 and was designated as a historic landmark in 1977. Several wings have been added over the years, including the Cloister, the Spanish Wing, and the Rotunda Wing. The oldest bell in Christendom (dated 1247) is currently housed at the Mission Inn.

Friday Freebie, Owl Eyeglass Holder

owl crochet pattern

The end of May is graduation season, so I created this cute little owl to make for your graduate. He can sit on the nightstand in the dorm room and guard their eyeglasses. There are several variations of the crocodile stitch, so I have posted a video on YouTube for this version.

The owl works up quickly with worsted weight yarn using about 2 1/3 ounce of ombre or variegated and 1 ounce of a matching solid color.

Last year I had the opportunity to work with a home builder to coordinate a house for Operation Finally Home that was donated to a local Marine veteran who was injured while working as a police officer after returning home. My contribution was a Thin Blue Line afghan created on the Addi Pro knitting machine.

As a follow-up to my recent post regarding TSA rules and what crafters can carry on a plane, yesterday I found this great pair of travel scissors that are TSA compliant. There’s even a keychain hole, so I can carry them everywhere!

Also released this week is the Sugar Skull Purses Crochet Patterns. Instructions include three different versions – waist bag (fanny pack), messenger bag, and neck wallet. Two versions require an approximately 4″ zipper which is very difficult to find, so I made a YouTube video on how to shorten a zipper. https://youtu.be/s8fyr_As-tA

http:// https://www.myfingersfly.com/products/sugar-skull-purses-crochet-pattern
These bags were inspired by a purse I bought for my daughter on our recent trip to Monterrey, Mexico.

Stay tuned for Sugar Skull Crochet Patterns ebook which will be available also on Amazon in Kindle and paperback formats. I am also working on some California-themed patterns and hope to visit Los Angeles next month to snap some photos.

To celebrate my new line of crochet-themed clothing, I will be giving away one free pattern for each t-shirt or set of leggings purchased through May 31, 2019. Simply place your order, then email me at lisa@myfingersfly.com with the name of the pattern you would like (ebooks not included). I will email you the requested pattern with 24 hours.

Success! You're on the list.
