Leaf Sprout Cable Tie & Bookmark Crochet Pattern

I was cleaning out my phone of photos and realized that I had several crochet patterns that I have yet to write up the pattern and publish it on the blog.

Luckily, I have a good habit of taking notes, so I don't forget how to make things. But of course, it'd be nice to have an actual edited pattern that I can share with everyone who visits my blog.

Usually taking and editing photos is the last step, so I'm surprised I got that far and still have yet to publish it.

Anyhow, this leaf sprout was created back in spring, which would have been perfect. But I had completely forgotten about it until now.

But these little leaves can sprout any time of the year!

Since it's almost back to school season, I guess it's time to get organized and start fresh. What's better than some bookmarks and cable ties to get you organized right?

Oh, and did I mention that my little BB is starting Kindergarten this year? Now there's three times the amount to get organized: my work life, my blog, and my child.

These are really cute, quick to make and a great stash-buster to help you get rid of those little balls of leftover yarn that is too small for anything else.

These are also great for craft fairs since they're so cute, practical and actually really easy to make!
