Today I am sharing with you an embroidered gift to my sister-in-law, given to her to help celebrate her graduation from college! We are all very proud of her and wish her the best of luck as she continues on to graduate school!
Both the DIY tassel and needle-worked flowers are made with embroidery floss. The key rings and clasp are found on Amazon. Here is a complete list of the materials used.

Crochet Cat Bed – Super Chunky Yarn – Free Pattern!
I recently discovered this super chunky yarn and I’m addicted! First thing I made was this sweet little gift for my kitty. It’s pretty easy. It’s a basic pattern for a crochet bowl. Under normal circumstances using normal weight yarn, it would be a small crochet bowl. But with super big chunky yarn? It’s a giant bowl! Or, an awesome cat bed! I’m happy to share this pattern with you today so you can give it a try!
–Crochet Hook – 30mm (or use your hands as a hook. But I found it much easier to use a tool and my gauge was more consistent.)
This crochet pattern works in rounds, not rows. This means you continue to build on top of the previous row without stopping.
Make a magic ring Round 1: sc 6 into ring, pull tail to tighten ring (6 sts) Round 2: 2sc in each st (12 sts) Round 3: <1sc, 2sc in next>, 5 times (18 sts) Round 4: <1sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next>, 6 times (24 sts) Round 5-6: 1 sc in each st (24 sts), sl st in final st. Tie off and weave in ends.
You’re done! But….
If you have a 20lb cat like I do…. you might need a bigger cat bed. So, you’ll need to work an additional increase row. Pattern include below!
