Want to try something new this summer? Try working up some Crochet Water Balloons! These have the same effect as traditional water balloons but without the waste and cleanup of broken water balloon strips. User a super bulky yarn for extra squish and absorbency and you'll be amazed at how fun these crocheted water balloons are! Plus, this way you'll be saving money and trips to the store for more water balloons since you can just reuse these as often as you want.
From the Blogger: "Did you know that you can crochet water "balloons"? These water balloons are awesome! By making them with Bernat Blanket Brights, you get classically colorful water balloons that are super absorbent and squishy! This also means that they are washable, reusable, dryer safe, latex free, and eco friendly. No more spending time filling water balloons- just drop these in a bucket of water and you are ready to go! Make them for some summer fun or for your next summer craft fair.

The Lamb Squish is a sheepy, wooly, and very squishy, free crochet pattern on Moogly! Perfect for spring, Easter, or any lamb, sheep, or farm lover - you'll love just how fast it is to make with Bernat yarns! Just like all the Squishes on Moogly, you can fill the Lamb Squish with a microbead pillow ball, or you can use Fiberfill. But this time I've used yet another option I found - a 10” Fairfield Pillow Ball! I'm so excited to have yet another choice for these patterns! And the yarn has a lot to do with the squishiness for this one too! I've used Bernat Sheepy for the gorgeous look and feel of the body, and then the details are made with a skein of Bernat Blanket O’Go - just one has all the extra colors needed!

Paige Baby Headband
"Paige's Baby Headband is just in time for Easter, Spring, and Summer too. It's light weight, not too big, not too small, it's just right. And don't you just love a project that only requires scrap yarn to do? I don't know about you, but I have a ton of scrap yarn! I raided my stash to find some tiny little balls of scrap yarn just for this project. This means you won't necessarily need to go out and buy more yarn, but if you want to make several of these for a craft fair for example, you could get a lot of headbands in all sizes out of ONE SKEIN!"
