Power Drill Free Crochet Pattern
Updated: Apr 28, 2020
Hello my crafty friends!
Today's motto is "Busy hands...happy Soul!"
Those who know me well, know my love for everything that is handmade, repurposed, made from scratch...
I enjoy so much creating new things and give new life to old ones, and crocheting, cooking, furniture making are just a few hobbies that allow me to express my creativity.
Because of this deep love for DIY, I couldn’t live without tools.
I've happened to collect quite a few in the past few years. You know that anything is possible as long as you have the right tools at hand! 😉
Today I'll be sharing with you all the instructions to crochet a fun Power Drill that any kid would love!
