Liz Makes Stuff

I’m Liz.
I’m a writer.
But I make stuff, too.

I taught myself to knit and crochet. My mom and ex taught me to cook. My partner is teaching me how to work with my hands as we build a home.

Pillow case covers

This is just a simple, single-crochet project to make some pillow covers for my home. It was fun and great practice. I am a pro at the single crochet now, and I have comfy pillows. Win/win.

Crochet baby blanket

I finished this at the beginning of the quarantine period for the pandemic, 2020. I used Bernat Baby Blanket yarn and I use this blanket every night for sleeping.

Knitted twist headband

Super fun project, purl slip stitch and regular knit stitch alternating. It’s stretchy and will be warm over my ears this winter. The twist hides the seam.

Fall-themed crochet coasters

These are fun little coasters that take no time at all and helped me practice the idea of going in a circle. I used single and double crochet stitches and the slip stitch.
