Did you know that we have a monthly crochet subscription box? With the love of crochet and everything about it we started a crochet subscription box back in October 2018. I have been designing crochet patterns since 2012 and love coming up with new designs and having a theme to create those designs really inspires me. After my husband started making crochet hooks last year after my crochet injury, I became inspired to crochet even more! Then I started hand dyeing yarn and designing based on the colorway and weight of the yarn, that is when the Leither Collection Subscription Box was born!

Let’s dive into the June 2019 box! Last month we went with a our bluebonnet theme and I am still gushing over that squishy yarn. After a poll I recently posted on social media asking what upcoming projects you would like to see in our boxes, one thing that came up numerous times was amigurimi. I had two ideas for this design, I knew I wanted to go with a llama but was trying to decide between full amigurimi body or going with a lovey, but I wanted a project where there wasn’t going to be a crazy amount of sewing involved, so the lovey one and I am still loving this adorable llama and my youngest has claimed it as her own llama that Mama made! If you missed our June Box, you can now purchase it as a Llama Lovey Kit HERE and you can find the Llama Lovey Crochet Pattern HERE.
Once I decided that I was going with llama lovey theme, I wanted the yarn to have that same sweet feeling, so I combined two of my favorite colors to dye and created the Blushing Sage yarn, that is pink and green dye but when the two cross each other, it creates a gorgeous purple shade, plus there is a little pop of cream in there from the bare yarn. This yarn is a dk weight and it is 100% superwash merino that is 231 yards and 100 grams. You can purchase more of the Blushing Sage Yarn HERE.
Beanies that I love!!

Lets talk about these gorgeous crochet hooks! The design is the same for both the Natural (bolvian rosewood) and Funfetti (blue and cream) but these two different woods make them both look unique in their own way! Which one did you receive?
Last month I talked about how we were changing our splurge item into a monthly themed stitch marker, last month it was our mermaid tail and this month it is the gorgeous dazzling elephant. Our daughter Ava, who is huge craft lover and maker wanted to join the Leither Co. team and we were trying to find the perfect thing for her to make and she loves and does and does an amazing job with these stitch markers. I love how crafting is for all ages and I great way to spend time screen free!
Here is the June crochet pattern in all her glory, if my daughter didn’t love her llama lovey so much, I would keep it for myself because she is super adorable. The llama lovey is designed 7 pieces to then be joined together to create this adorable friend. Also included in our box this month was the stuffing, safety eyes and a little strand of yarn to create the “Y” shaped nose, I didn’t want you to have to worry about having to find just a little bit of supplies to finish your project. You can find the Llama Lovey HERE and I hope you love her as much as my daughter Elizabeth and I do!
We love putting together the boxes every month, it is a lot of fun to put together every piece that goes into the box. We brainstorm what colors we want the yarn to be and if the crochet hooks will completely coordinate or complement the yarn. Once I have the colors for the yarn chosen, then I decide what I am going to make, I let the colors of the yarn tell me what it wants to be! We have also loved finding coordinating stitch markers to complete the set.
If you received the June 2019 box I would love to know what you favorite item from the box was your favorite. If you didn’t receive the box, would still love to know which item I showed you was your favorite and remember you can now purchase this as the Llama Lovey Kit HERE.
