Hi! I’m Tahryn from Burgundy & Blush and it’s great to be here on Joy of Motion crochet. I’m going to be sharing 8 quick patterns with you that are perfect for last minute spring summer craft fair projects to build up your inventory!
LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
I’m a crocheter from England in the UK and love getting to know other crocheters all over the world. I hang out mainly on Instagram, @burgundyandblush, and would love to connect with you guys over there. You can find my work and patterns at www.burgundyandblush.co.uk or over on Ravelry.

MY CROCHET BACKGROUND
I’ve been crocheting for a couple of years since a work colleague taught me on a lunch break one day. I was addicted immediately and have crocheted almost every day since! I started with small amigurumi patterns, mainly watching videos on YouTube, then started to make hats, cowls, etc. I had no concept of tension, yarn weights or hook sizes to begin with which resulted in most things being far too small and misshapen! Now I tend towards making simple, classic accessories for home and wearables, and have recently started to design garment patterns. I try to name all my patterns after flowers and plants, so maybe you’ll see some you recognize.
THE 8 QUICK CROCHET PATTERNS BY BURGUNDY & BLUSH:
This clutch bag pattern uses the moss stitch and the puff stitch, it’s made in one rectangle piece and sewn together at the sides with a chain closing. This is my most popular pattern!
Another bag pattern using one of my new favourite stitches, the alpine stitch. I love the texture of it, and I’ve added other stitches to keep it fun to make. It also has instructions to make the strap adjustable, a 2 in 1!
This waffle stitch oven glove, oven mitt or hot pad is a quick project and really functional. The chunkiness of the waffle stitch protects hands, but use a strong cotton yarn. Tip – also great for holding ice cream when eating straight from the tub!
This is a perfect market project to make up in a range of colours as it’s so fast and versatile. Using SC on one side and blanket stitch on the other it has a different look on each side and is great for keeping in your bag, storing bits and pieces, make up bags, or for travel.
A little one skein set (using Lily Sugar n Cream) that makes a lovely gift over the holiday season, or to keep for yourself as I do! I’m forever losing these around the house, in the bathroom, bedroom, make up bags, etc. So I came up with an easy storage solution to keep the scrubbies in.
Another quick way to add products to your stock list for a summer market. You could make a bunch of these up in no time. I love these as summery accessories without the warmth of the usual earwarmers we tend to make in winter. They look cute and keep flyaways out your face too!
The quickest of patterns in this roundup, this is a great option to add some low price point items to your collection and the colour options will be catching the eyes of the passers by! Those pictured are made from a DK cotton, but would also work up a treat in a chunkier cable.
This string of bunnies is a cute seasonal decoration but also great year round for a nursery or child’s room. Make it as long or short as you like, and try mixing up the colours!
I hope you found some helpful options in this round up for ideas to quickly add to your spring summer stock inventory and add fun options to your collections! You can find more patterns on www.burgundyandblush.co.uk, and i’d love to have you tag me in your projects on Instagram, @burgundyandblush
