CHAIR CUSHIONS

THESE CHAIRS NO LONGER HAD CUSHIONS. I PURCHASED A QUEEN MEMORY FOAM 1 INCH THICK TOPPER AT A YARD SALE. CUT IT TO SIZE AND DOUBLE STACKED THEM. BOUGHT TWO 62 BY 90 TABLECLOTHS AND CUT THEM TO MAKE...

SCARF

I USED THE HAIR PIN LACE LOOM,MADE THREE ROWS, ATTACHED THEM TOGETHER AND WEAVED  THE RIBBON THROUGH.

SLEEVES

MY SWEATER SHRUNK SOME, I DIDN'T MIND THE SHORTER WAIST BUT I MINDED THE SHORTER SLEEVES. SO I ADDED CROCHETTE TO THEM AND THIS IS WHAT I GOT. IT PEAKS OUT FROM MY JACKETS JUST RIGHT.

THREAD SPOOL TREE

I PURCHASED OVER 50 MEDIUM AND LARGE SPOOLS OF THREAD ON CRAIGSLIST.COM AND I DIDN'T WANT TO JUST KEEP THEM IN A BAG, I SAW THAT SOMEONE HAD USED AN OLDFASHION WINE BOTTLE DRYING RACK FOR...

HAT

I KNITTED TWO OF THESE IN ONE DAY, THEY CAME OUT GREAT. I USED BLACK CORD ELASTIC TO CLOSE THE TOP,AND ADDED SOME TO THE BOTTOM TO HOLD TIGHTER. I USED THE CIRCULAR NEEDLES #10 ,16"LONG, I HAD 3...

Comfy Wrap

WHEN I SAW THE WRAP ON CRAFTSTYLISH, I INMEDIATELY KNEW I WANTED TO MAKE A BUNCH FOR THE LADIES IN MY CONGREGATION. I EVEN BOUGHT A KNITTING MACHINE TO MAKE THEM FASTER. WELL THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN. BUT...

CROCHET NEEDLE CASE

SWEATSHIRT CARDIGAN

I TOOK A MEN'S LARGE SWEATSHIRT, MADE IT INTO A SMALL. THEN CUT IT UP THE FRONT.CREATED THE SCALLOPED PLACARD FROM THE EXCESS FABRIC,AND ADDED THOSE VERY COLORFUL HAND BUTTONS. I THINK IT CAME OUT OK.

PIN CUP

I liked the egg cup idea, but i don't have one, so i used the old top of a roll on deodorant bottle. it works

CAPRIS

MY SISTER ASKED ME TO FIX HER RIPPED SLEEP CAPRIS, AND THEY COULD NOT BE SALVAGED, SO I TOOK THEM APPART USED THEM AS A PATTERN AND MADE THESE, OUT OF FABRIC I GOT AT A YARD SALE FOR PENNIESWHO...

SCARFFLETT

I SAW  THIS IN CRAFSTYLISH, SHE DID ONE IN ONE NIGHT TO GIVE TO A LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS GUEST, I THOUGHT IT WAS A FABULOUS IDEA, AND I MADE 9 IN ONE WEEKEND. THESE FOUR ARE JUST WHAT I HAVE LEFT...

TEE CARDIGAN

THIS WAS A BLAST TO MAKE, I DID IT IN ONE NIGHT,IT'S HARD TO SEE BECAUSE I TOOK THE PICTURE WITH MY CELL PHONE, BUT IT CAME OUT REALLY GOOD

Doggy bag

I DIDN'T GLUE NOSE AND EYES ON, I JUST DID IT ALL WITH YARN, BUT I THINK IT CAME OUT ALRIGHT.
