31 Days of Candy Day 31 (Final Day!): Candy Apple Free Crochet Pattern

Candy Apple Free Crochet Pattern: 31 Days of Candy Day 31 by E'Claire Makery

It’s National Candy Apple Day today, and the last day of the 31 Days of Candy! I can’t believe that the 31 Days of candy is actually over. It has been one of the most challenging months of my creative spirit, but also one of the most rewarding. I’ve gone through moments of being pumped about making patterns down to doubting myself with if my patterns are good enough. Through it all I learned that I can do more than I ever thought possible, and cannot wait to see where my creative journey takes me. I was completely crazy to do this during my wedding month, but it also was something that was totally worth it for me. Thank you all for being the most supportive community that has helped encourage me to do this! I couldn’t have gotten through this without you all. I can’t wait to show you guys what happens next during these upcoming weeks and months with the Makery! Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow on my Instagram for a sneak peek of one of my secret projects and next pattern release.

Candy Corn Free Crochet Pattern: 31 Days of Candy Day 30 by E'Claire Makery

Happy National Candy Corn Day! Of course I had to celebrate that by creating a tiny crochet candy corn pattern of my own, which makes Day 30’s candy a teeny Candy Corn, It’s so little and cute! I don’t enjoy eating candy corns, but I do think they are adorable. All of the colors are so fun, and being wrapped up in a tiny package makes them perfectly put together. I’m on my honeymoon right now so today’s post is very brief! I do want you do be able to make the pattern though, so I made sure to share it. Hope you like it!

31 Days of Candy Day 28: Chocolate Bar Free Crochet Candy Pattern

Chocolate Bar Free Crochet Candy Pattern: 31 Days of Candy Day 28 by E'Claire Makery

Today is National Chocolate Day, which meant that I totally had to make a chocolate bar to celebrate! Chocolate is one of my favorite things, so this national holiday is pretty special for me. Plus, I got married yesterday, so it’s even more special! 

 

This cute little chocolate bar is one of my favorite candies that I’ve made so far. Maybe it’s the tiny size, the fact that it’s chocolate, or that it’s the candy made for the day after my wedding. Chocolate might not be the thing that my husband Stephen would want to celebrate with, but it sure is for me! All of the stress of prepping for the wedding, wondering how it’s all work, and all of the little details are finally done so now I need all of the chocolate right now. It was so worth all of the stress though! Such a wonderful day spent with friends and family to celebrate getting married to the man of my dreams! 

 

 

This chocolate bar is a cute and simple project to make for any occasion. It’s crocheted in two pieces that are sewn together which creates such an adorable chocolate! I hope you enjoy making it!

31 Days of Candy Day 27 (Special Wedding Addition!): Gem Ring Candy Free Crochet Patterns

Gem Ring Candy Free Crochet Pattern: 31 Days of Candy by E'Claire Makery

Today is my wedding day, friends! This special day is finally here and I am so excited that I can hardly contain it! To celebrate my wedding, I’ve created a candy Gem Ring inspired by Ring Pops, those candy lollipop rings that were so much fun to get as a kid. I remember eating these when I was younger, and loving the fact that I got to wear and eat the candy at the same time. I wanted to make sure that this crochet candy gem ring would be able to be worn too! Prepare for a long post, because I’d love to share some of my love story with you!

 

 

Though I won’t be wearing this ring at my wedding today, I will be receiving another ring that is even more special. I am beyond excited that I get to marry my best friend today! For a long time I honestly thought that no one would want to marry me because of my chronic pain and stomach issues that I have. I believed that since it was so much work to take care of me on certain days that I would be too much of a hassle to marry. Then Stephen came along. We first met in a college bible study, where my first impression of him was that he was a nice guy and it was cool that he liked kids since he was coming from AWANA where he led games with different kids. His first impression of me was that I was cute, had a lot of bible knowledge, and was so out of his league. With those impressions of each other in the back of our heads, we didn’t have many interactions beyond seeing each other in our friend group.

 

 

After a year of knowing each other, we started becoming better friends and found that we really enjoyed each other’s company! We were drawn to each other in some way, even though we didn’t realize that we liked each other. Then, on our Christmas break, Stephen was at home in Fresno but came back into town where I was for jury duty that he thought he had. He invited me to come hang with him and two of his friends that came along with him, and we all ended up hanging out for over 10 hours. It was so much fun! The whole time we were hanging out, in the back of my head I kept thinking that I liked him, but I didn’t want to feel that way since I didn’t know if he was interested in me or not. He was such a friendly and nice guy that I knew he treated all girls that nicely. He kept pursuing me though that day, and doing little gestures to show that he cared about me. I kept telling myself that it was just because he was nice. Trying to protect myself and all that, haha.

At the end of our time hanging out, I decided to invite him to a trip to Universal Studios Hollywood that some of our friends had put together. I was going to be the only single one on that trip so I wanted someone else to come along and be single with me. He said it sounded like fun, we hugged, and then he left to go back home for the rest of break. At the end of the next day, he texted me to ask me if I was ok that we were going to be the only single ones on that trip. I said that I was if he was, but in the back of my head I was nervous that he was friend zoning me. Then, the next day he texted me saying that he wasn’t ok with it because he wanted it to be a date. Wait, what??? I was so surprised and happy! He said that he realized how much he liked me and would love to get to know me better on a date. He’d even drive the two and a half hours back into the town, where I lived and he went to college, for a special date.

 

 

After Christmas he came back into town, and we had our first date together hiking by the ocean nearby. We had never spent time just one on one with each other, so I was a little nervous about if we’d get along then too. I had nothing to worry about though, because as we talked we learned that we had almost everything in common! We both had been homeschooled, loved reading, were major nerds, had the same views on everything, and even both had had major surgeries. I told him about how I had a bunch of health issues and that if he didn’t want to pursue dating me more because of that I totally understood. He told me that it was a nice try to scare him away, but that it didn’t scare him at all because he had major back surgery for scoliosis so he was very familiar with health issues. I was so amazed that he wasn’t afraid of my problems, and we’ve been together ever since and are continually learning how perfectly God made us for each other.
