Tropical Crocheted Chip Clips

I was bored one gloomy Saturday so I crocheted a wee little sunshine to lift my mood. It was so cute and since it only took a few minutes to work up I decided to work up some more tropical themed minis.

The fruits of my fun little paradise afternoon sat themselves in my yarn basket for weeks. Then today I decided to give them a purpose! I always wanted to put them on magnets but I chose clothes pins and magnets. This way they are twice as useful, clip a bag of chips or stick something to the fridge!

This set is for mom but I will be listing a set like this one and possibly a few other sets in my Etsy shop that will be opening soon!

Project Peek

Every Giftmas I make gifts for everyone in mine and my husband Josh's immediate families. This year I am including the animals because they are as much a part of the family as any of us!
I was handed a wonderful crochet catnip toy idea a couple months back and I decided to finally try it out!
Behold - the crochet mini toilet paper filled with catnip!
Here it is right before the final sewing! After I finished I realized it would have been more fun if I would have stitched in small pieces of Velcro so the kitty could actually unroll it as they love to do! So I will start on another soon and perfect the design so all the kitties on my giftmas list will have some fun!

And since this blog is "Stuff Laci Makes" and not "Stuff the Crazy Cat Lady Crochets" here are my husband's birthday cupcakes. And yes, his bday is on Halloween!
