  1. Ice Box Crochet; SKU# 5836C

    A cute little ice box with all kinds of food. I’m sure the kiddos I love would love to play with the whole set.

  2. I would love you to review the Graph Crochet Leisure Arts Book. I’ve always wanted to try doing this. Good Luck Ladies !

  3. I think this would be interesting to read a review on. So many different types of patterns to be made with t-shirt yarn.
    As far as my favorite, I do really like the bucket style as well, but the purple bag I think is fabulous. Sorry I couldn’t find the name of it to make sure.
