Happy Star Wars Day, friends! Since it’s May the 4th I thought I would share an older project that I had finished back in February. My first attempt at a crochet and fabric fusion scarf. I had seen some awesome Star Wars flannel fabric at Joann’s and knew I had to get it!
Well, happy Friday to you! I hope things in your crafty world are going well. Things are well in my little world, but it seems like I haven’t had hardly any time to pick up a needle or hook really. I can already feel the sniffles and itchy eyes coming on to kick off allergy season. (It’s not even MAY yet… Oye.) But ANYway…. onto my main wip.. this crochet & fabric fusion tote bag! I did want to share a few photos (some of them you’ll notice from my Instagram page) of my progress so far on this fun project! Let’s rewind and start from the beginning!
As I ALWAYS have too many plastic bags cluttering up my house (even though I try try to keep them organized) so it was time yet again to make some more plarn. This time though, after perusing the internets and Pinterest, I decided that I wanted to make it stronger by twisting it! I had found some pretty inventive ways of doing this. Like this video here of a gal using her sewing machine to spin plarn (neat idea, right?!)Read More »
Hey guys! Happy WIP Wednesday to you out there in craft & yarn land! What are you working on today? I’m a little tired this morning due to my toddler teething, so I’m having a cup of coffee, relaxing, and making progress on this lovely squishy scarf made with Malabrigo worsted in “Bobby Blue” hue.
Hey there! Hope your Spring is off to a great start! We have a lot of house stuff we’re in the process of starting / finishing right now and that feels pretty good, I must say!
I can’t believe it’s been a YEAR already since we moved into our current house! Shortly after moving in we were really excited to paint the whole inside… (spoiler…we didn’t). We still have painters tape up in the hallway and our bedroom was not even touched…until this past weekend! I’m sure the fact that we’ve been enjoying a little more sunshine helps too..especially here in the Pacific Northwest where we are all Vitamin D deficient. 😉
I am happy to finally be getting my headaches under control, too! I have been getting chronic headaches & migraines for about the past year, and it’s literally THE worst. My new doc has me taking a vitamin regimen and I think it’s working great for me so far knock on wood. Which is great…because Lord knows there is already NOT enough time to do all my crafts & DIY projects even when I’m motivated and feeling 100%. 😀
So hey! About that new WIP! Our guest bathroom / Nora’s bathroom is starting to come together! I found this cute bathroom art at Hobby Lobby the other week that’s helping me tie in accent colors and what not.
For Christmas my sweet bonus sis made Nora a couple of cute hooded towels, which I just adore….
Here’s my shower curtain and towel set that I scored super cheap! The towels are super soft and I got them for $3.99 a piece!
Aren’t those so cute! I love the teal and the yellow accents, which is why I picked up some of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton! yarn in Buttercup for my hand towel. I think it’s coming along quite nicely! You may notice I’m using the same pattern shown in my Endless Waves Scarf & Headband (apparently I can’t get enough of it) but I thought I had to when I noticed that the bathroom rug I ended up getting kinda mimics it.
Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll share the hand towel pattern, and I need to start one for my wash cloths too! What are you working on this Spring?? I’d love to hear about it… and if you have a DIY project drop me a line about guest posting… I’d love to share!
Just an update on that recent WIP that I actually finished! Quickest. WIP. Evar! It was for a swap that I did with my talented niece over at Hooked with Love. She had been working on cute ornaments for her shop when I saw her post an R2D2 one…and I knew I had to have […]
A new WIP and me exploring charts and stranded knitting!
Hey guys & Happy Star Wars Day! I am SO super duper excited to be going to see the movie tonight with my bonus siblings! Hubby was gracious enough to stay home with the wee one, as it was a little late in the night for him… so I will go see it again (of […]
My dear friend’s super sweet daughter was turning 1 year old, and I immediately knew I wanted to make her something nice and cozy for Winter.
Hey guys! Oh how I’ve missed you!! 😀
I decided that (being that I had like 1,343 )plastic bags exploding out of my kitchen drawer, that it was time for a plastic bag project!
So here’s one WIP that I forgot to blog about that’s almost done! I don’t really like seaming things up (and frankly I have to relearn how to do it so that it looks nice, every time that I actually have to) so that’s why I love when I find a pattern that IS seamless! Read More »
Hey all! Well it’s Wednesday again! How did that happen so soon? Also it is apparent that I have a problem. I think this is my 3rd (4th? no 3rd…I think) WIP now! I know you all understand that, (since you are probably just like me) and know it can NOT be helped!!! Gosh, if […]
Here’s a new, fun lace weight project for this hot weather!
