1  Wristlet made from an old necktie in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bethntim on: June 26, 2015 10:58:58 AM
Guys, we need to discuss two very important topics today, no, not the confederate flag or marriage equality, but #1-I never throw anything away, like ever (cue Taylor Swift), I'll probably die under a mountain of craft supplies and have to be dug out, and #2-I have too much time on my hands (cue Styx). I made a wristlet out of one of the 354684632354684 ties my dad gave me when he retired

big enough for my phone and debit card

9  Women's Peaked Cap-crochet in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: January 02, 2015 01:48:38 PM
I used this awesome tutorial:
to make this awesome hat:

The buttons are from my husband's grandmother, she wasted nothing, she grew up in the depression era and when her clothing wore out she would remove the zippers and buttons and save them for future projects.  When she died, I inherited them Smiley
While digging through the button stash I found two really awesome black and white houndstooth buttons and that has inspired me to make another hat
Hope I didn't bore y'all with my story Smiley
Peace and blessings

10  M&M scarf (with tutorial) in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: August 09, 2014 01:01:28 PM
I know what you're thinking.... Beth, seriously, isn't it always 105 degrees where you live?  The answer is yes but that makes having an M&M scarf that much more fun!
Now you too can make your own M&M scarf!
Choose as many colors to represent the M&Ms as you like (I chose 6)
size J crochet hook
yarn needle
white felt (for cutting out the Ms)
Make 18 circles:
double crochet 8 times into a magic circle, pull tight and slip stitch into top of first stitch (8 stitches)
Round 2: ch 2, dc into same stitch, 2 dc into each stitch around, join with slip stitch into top of ch 2. (16 stitches)
Round 3: ch 2, dc into same stitch, 2 dc into each stitch around, join with slip stitch into top of ch 2. (32 stitches)
Round 4: ch 2, dc into same stitch, 2 dc into each stitch around, join with slip stitch into top of ch 2. (64 stitches)
Leave long tail for sewing circles together.
Join circles by threading long tail onto yarn needle and stitching to adjacent circle (6 o'clock position) while the tail of next circle is at the 12 o'clock position.  stitch at 6 o'clock position, 2 stitches to the right of center, double back and 2 stitches to the left of center for a total of 5 stitches joining the 2 circles.  Continue stitching til all 18 are joined. 
Cut 18 M logos out of white felt and adhere with craft/fabric glue.  Let dry and enjoy your scarf!

The circles all stitched together prior to attaching the felt:

Close up of 1 circle with the M logo:
