Happy October! Halloween is my favorite month of the year. I’m all stocked up on fall scented candles and have started digging out the Halloween crafts and decorations.

We’ve been busy here at the Loopy house with the start of the school year. It seems like October is the month when we finally get cozy with the new routine, so I always look forward to it. And also, ghosts:

Free crochet pattern for glowing crochet ghosts upcycled Halloween craft! Start with a yogurt jar, end up with awesome!

Yarn rebates on Ibotta!

Yes, you heard that right! You can get rebates on yarn at JOANN if you use the Ibotta app (available on Apple and Android)!

  • Through March 31, 2018, you can get 10% cash back on your purchases at JOANN. (You can use this rebate multiple times!)
  • Bonus rebate: get an extra $2 cash back when you spend $45 or more at JOANN in one shopping trip!
  • Big Twist Value Yarn, $1 cash back
  • Big Twist Sincerely Yarn, $1 cash back
  • Bit Twist Rainbow Classic Yarn, $1 cash back
  • Buttercream Yarn, $1 cash back

If you use this Ibotta referral link, you’ll receive a $10 welcome bonus! (And I’ll get a little cash for referring you, so thank you!)

I use Ibotta for all my grocery shopping and drug store trips because the rebate stacks on top of coupons, too. I’ve saved about $20 last month on things I’d be buying anyway.

So there you have it! Go forth and save money with all the yarn on sale this week, and don’t forget to take your coupons!

Please share this with all your yarn-loving friends!

In case you missed it:

  • Glowing ghosts. This adorable project is quick, cheap, and easy! You could make a few ghosts before the end of the weekend, and I also included some kid-friendly ideas so your littles can craft along with you.

Upcoming on Jen’s a Little Loopy:

  • Hugamonster 2.0. You all asked for a bigger Hugamonster and I was more than happy to take a whack at designing my first ragdoll pattern. I’m super excited about how this one turned out! (I keep talking about this. This is the week Hugamonster 2.0 arrives. I promise.)
  • Granny squares. You’ve been making them wrong your whole life. This post may be controversial, people have strong opinions about grannies. 😉

P.S. – Do you hang out with me on Instagram? I would LOVE it if you did! That’s my favorite social media platform and I love checking out what people are making!  Last week we ordered groceries from Amazon Fresh, and Smalls and I had a blasty blast playing with the dry ice.


(Yes we talked about warning labels and how to safely handle the dry ice, don’t worry! I’m like Sam the Eagle when it comes to this sort of thing.)

Have a fabulous week!
