Eat your chocolate and wear it, too! I designed this scarf of candy truffles so that you could feel like a walking box of chocolates — cute and scrumptious! Mix and match yarn colors to create your favorite truffle flavors, then decorate with dots, hearts, swirls, or stripes. Guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth, this scarf makes an enjoyable and decadent treat!

Free Crochet Pattern: Holly Golightly Sleeping Mask from Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Mask12smI randomly decided the other day that I needed to make myself Holly Golightly’s sleeping mask from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and I figured I’d share the pattern so that you guys can make one, too! The cool thing about this pattern is that you can turn the basic sleeping mask into anything you want…. like a bunny mask, a kitty mask, a teddy bear mask… there are tons of possibilities for customization!

I made 4 other kinds of masks, which you can see in the intro of my YouTube tutorial!

I have no idea how many people actually use sleeping masks on the daily, but while I was crocheting one at my parents’ house, my mom revealed that she uses them! Who knew!? Also, I was making a pink mask, and she asked what it was going to be, and I told her a bunny mask…but actually it was this eye-ball-falling-out-of-the-socket mask. Sometimes, you have to tell a white lie so that you don’t sound crazypants around your folks.

This pattern will focus on the Holly Golightly mask, for whenever you have the blues or the mean reds!

WIWT: Hunting for Bigfoot

MVB2Some time before the holidays, I spied this supercool t-shirt by Maiden Voyage on Agent Lover‘s blog. IT GLOWS IN THE DARK (sorta?… I haven’t really tried ‘charging it up’ yet).

I wore it to a farewell dinner for my pal Guapo and posted a pic on Insta, and y’all seemed to like it – and cryptozoology – a real whole bunch, including my friend-of-friend (Is it easier to just say “friend”? When does one become a “friend” as opposed to “the dude I met once who is friends with my friend”? Discussion continued later) Luke, who ended up getting this shirt as well, which, obviously called for TWINSIE OUTFIT PHOTOSHOP THINGZ. (p.s. If you want to check out his band Awesomer, that might be nice, cuz Photoshop humiliation … I mean, SPLENDOR.)

MVB4There was a brief discussion about pith helmets that will make no sense now, but, let’s just say, that if you were to have an actual pith helmet, everyday would be an adventure. #pithlife

MVB3For hunting the Bigfoot, I figured a shorts-and-tights combo would provide flexibility, agility, stamina….. okay, I don’t know. I don’t think I can carry this Bigfoot-hunting thing that far right now. I happened to get these tights around the same time and wondered what everything would look like together. Kinda weird, but there’s also sort of an adventure theme with the squids and the pirate ships and everything. It’s just… a different adventure than the Bigfoot one. I cover land and sea in this outfit. It’s the surf-and-turf of outfits. I’m going to end on that high note. Thank you.

Shirt: Maiden Voyage. Shorts: ModCloth. Tights: TejaJamilla, Boots: Steve Madden (I’m trying to find a cute replacement for my F21 buckle booties that are falling apart…but I have yet to find The One.)
