NEW PATTERN + VIDEO: Named after one of my favorite places in the Rocky Mountains, these Breckenridge Boots are my newest free pattern that combines crochet and inexpensive flip flops! 👣 🔸 Of all my flip flop patterns, I think the construction of these boots will fit the most people and be the easiest to achieve the results you want! 🙌Plus, there is an super thorough video tutorial that will take you through the pattern step-by-step. 🔸 Make and Do Crew readers are seriously the best and I appreciate all the support, pinning and lovely feedback you guys send my way. I really hope this tutorial is helpful and fun for you! 🔸 Since some readers had trouble playing the Cabin Boots tutorial with four videos embedded on one page, I’m splitting this tutorial into three parts. Part 1 is up on the blog right now and I’ll be sharing Part 2 and 3 this weekend (link in my bio or search “Breckenridge Boots” on MakeAndDoCrew.com). 🔸 Now go buy some flip flops! 🏃🏽♀️👊🏽(Mine are from @oldnavy!) This awesome UGG-colored yarn is Wool-Ease Thick & Quick from @lionbrandyarn in “Toffee.”

Tagged to share #widn by fabulous Miki @sfmgs Thank you for thinking of me lovely lady 😊 I was up with the birds this morning, a super busy day ahead! I want to be sat at my desk finishing up a pattern to go to be tested, but alas I have to go to work 🙁 Just time to make a little square to keep me going 😂 What are you up to @frederikacreates @ateliersopra @jellybean_junction @thelittlebeenz no pressure of course, only if you’d like to share 😘🌸🌈💛💕☀️💖🌟

Every day I come home with bits of twig, leaves, berries, feathers, moss, (you name it!) in my pockets, and I never have anything to put them in – they end up in totes, on tables, in baking tins. So today, as the rain tips down and I have a couple of days breathing space before the next commissions have to be started, i’ve dug out a ball of string, and intend to make myself a berry basket ♡♡♡ . . . #crochet #crochetaddict #ilovecrochet #instacrochet #moderncrochet #molliemakes #craftiversity #craftastherapy #nothingisordinary #flashmystash
