Coffee And Crochet Podcast - Let's Get Loopy! | Posh Pooch Designs

 Coffee And Crochet Podcast 
Let's Get Loopy!
With Sara Sach Of  Posh Pooch Designs



I have had a few question lately about,
 "Which loops are what?"
What does That mean?

Chain Loops:
Front Loop, Back Loop And Bottom Bump






Stitch Loops:
 Front Loop, Back Loop And 3rd Loop


We talked about loops and I also did a demo 
of them to help you understand where the loops are.
We talked about chain loops, and stitch loops.

Yep, We Got A Little Loopy!

Flower Cluster Little Granny Bag Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Flower Cluster Little Granny Bag 
Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach Posh Pooch Designs



The Cluster Flower Granny Bag is a fun drawstring bag.
 It's just what you need for carrying your phone and wallet,
 when you don't want to bring your purse with you.

It also makes a nice little purse for the littles. They will
 love to put their treasures in, and pull the drawstrings 
closed for safe keeping. They also make bright and
 cheerful gift bags.


If you want to make it into a cross body bag,
 just make your drawstring chains a lot longer.

This is fun project for using up assorted Medium (4)
yarns. You can choose the colors and make some
 pretty little bags.

Pennant Dog Bandanas Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 FRIDAY FUN DAY
Pennant Dog Bandanas 
Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


It's National Dog Day!
 The Day We Celebrate All The Dogs
In Our lives.

Woo Hoo! I Mean "Bow Wow!"

We are going to crochet a Bandanna
 / Bandana for Our dogs.
I designed this crochet pattern quite a few years
 ago, and decided today was the perfect day to retest, 
and update with new pics and a brand new video.



 This Crochet Pattern is designed in four sizes:
X Small
Small
 Medium
 Large

The Size is determined By How many "rounds"
 you stitch on your granny triangle. Continue the rounds 
for an even larger bandanna, or make one for yourself. 


You choose, the size, And the colors you want to make.
 I made Maximo And Rosie's in the 
Mustang, Oklahoma School Colors.
