This cute crochet stingray is a perfect gift project to make for kids of any age!
From the blogger: "After making the Pocket Full of Sunshine and the Pocket Full of Rainbows purses, my daughter (who quickly took them over) requested a stingray purse. Immediately I thought, 'That's a fun idea!' As soon as I finished the purse base, she wanted to have it. She didn't even want to wait for the handle to be added. After our photo shoot with the purse, she requested I remove the handle. This made me think 'This could easily be a cute stuffed animal too!'
It’s finally summer (well, almost). I dream of days crocheting on the beach while my kids play (and leave me to my crafty ventures!) I also look forward to walking the shores and exploring, and that’s how the Pocket Full of Sunshine came to be! One thing I hate about the beach is carrying around the big ol’ beach bag. Sure, it’s fine when we’re there to lounge and swim, but what about just walking along the sand? All I need is a small pouch for some important things like my phone and keys.

"This crochet bag is a slightly different one from the "Inventive Bag" that I shared before. Someone else wanted a bag exactly as the Inventive bag but to be used as a messenger bag and with a larger size so I added a strap and more rows. In this one I didn't use back loop stitches, I made more rows so there are 20 for each color section. I cross stitched holding two yarns togethers instead of one, didn't sc around in the end each piece separately, I couldn't line it yet but It is fine as it is, I think. I also steam blocked it. And after that process I steam blocked every crochet product I find at home. I loved it. "
"Bags and purses are so popular to crochet, but finding the right purse handles doesn't always fit in with your project! These purse handles are made very quickly, and are sturdy and durable. They can be made in any colors to match your project, or in jute which will coordinate with any colors. Black is also another good option and it too will work with any color of purse being made! Add this pattern to your bags and purses patterns for a quick finishing detail!"
"Gnomes have been one of my mom’s favorites since I was little. On vacations to the Oregon Coast she would tell use she could see gnomes in the trees and tell us stories about them. She really made them come to life. Since gnomes are popular lately I thought it would be fun to make one into a luminary cover. It slips over a mason jar and I put a battery operated tea light inside. It could be used for treats or gifts too. "
