Flower Pendant Necklace to Crochet - Photo © Amy Solovay
You can crochet this flower pendant necklace using wire and beads. I think this piece is really versatile; it would be a lovely way to accessorize casual wear, spring and summer sundresses, dressier dresses, or even business attire.

Happy Earth Day, everyone.
Here's an idea you can use to celebrate Earth Day -- but it doesn't have to be an "Earth Day thing." You can do this any day at all.
Crochet a Rag Rug With Our Free Pattern - Photo © Amy Solovay
If you have an overabundance of old sheets, stained / outgrown clothing, or similar textiles hanging around, don't throw them away. You can transform them into a lovely rag rug; just cut them into strips, pick a rag rug pattern, and work a little crochet magic on them.
If you don't have all that many textiles to work with, or if you have a short attention span, you might want to begin with a smaller project. A rag bag would be another great project idea for recycling old fabrics.
Another idea: You could try making a fabric crochet necklace with wire-wrapped pendants for an even quicker project.

Pictured above, you see a place setting featuring this placemat made with organic cotton yarn, an environmentally friendly choice. The green color is an added bonus which ties in nicely with the overall "green" theme. The placemat is finished with a scalloped crochet lace edging and some woven yarn.
This project calls for upcycling some pull tabs and transforming them into these beautiful napkin rings, which are also pictured in the place setting above. You'll find the free instructions for these napkin rings right here on our website.
If you have napkins with stunning crocheted edgings, this is a great way to show 'em off. Bonus points if the napkins, or edgings, are green.
