Wheel & Petal Crochet Coasters
These cute little coasters work up super fast, use a miniscule amount of yarn, and are so easy. Once you get the hang of these, they’re so simple you can totatlly veg out on that show you’ve been meaning to watch. After the first few, my fingers knew the way. I just had to sit still a minute.
If you’re not so into making them yourself, I have a few available in my Etsy shop here:
On to the instructions!

And you’re done! These work up so fast and use such a small amount of yarn you can get a whole bunch from one skein of yarn. Great for using up left over yarn. Lovely for housewarming gifts. Perfect for adding delicate details and/or pops of color to home décor. And of course, they are meant to protect furniture from dings and moisture. Which is great as the weather warms up and our drinks will more often contain tasty, icy beverages.
Have fun! And if you make some, come find me on social media. I'm @angelhawari on quite a few platforms. Post pics and tag me. I'd love to see ♥
Chocolate Chip Crochet Cookies
Make cookies with me!
I hadn't made time to crochet in who knows how long. But once I picked it up again, holey moley! It's all I want to do some days. At first I dove into big blanket projects that took weeks to finish, and now that initial flaming hot passion has mellowed into a warm, consistent glow. Smaller projects are really nice, ya know?
These crochet cookies are quick & easy, don't use much yarn, make nice gifts, and help you find your keys should they get buried in a bag or something.
If you don't want to make one yourself, I have some already made!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Keychains available here:
The only stitches you need to know are single crochets and slip stitches so this is a good project for all skill levels.
It starts with a magic ring. So if you would like a demo, pop over to my Youtube channel here: youtu.be/r_hKv0iSm04
(the magic ring starts at minute 3:15 if you wanna fast forward right to it)
♥ On to the instructions ♥

Otherwise, only one stitch worked into each stitch.

Assembling your Cookie: Align front & back pieces, wrong sides together, and join with slip stitches all the way around. Cut yarn. Weave in ends. Done!
You can now add a hanging loop and/or key chain hardware for a cute accessory perfect for keeping or gifting.
I hope you have fun with these! I have around a dozen now.
Thank you all! And I hope you have a really nice, relaxing time making play food. Which I totally didn't get the point of, but now I do! It's just silly and fun. Happy Stitching!
