I have 4 projects to post (well, I need to finish a detail on one of them first), and 13 more projects on my list. Not getting any of the June prompts (except for the Battle Royale) finished back in June really put me behind. But a few of my planned projects are Zaps (4 or 5, I think).

And, I have two questions...
If I carve a stamp and then print fabric with the stamp and then use the printed fabric as the lining for a project, can I count them as 3 separate projects (stamp, fabric, sewn project)? And, if the stamp is food-themed, can I count all 3 projects as Foodology? I'm trying to get maximum value for my efforts (Go Team Textbook!) Smiley

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Tulle Dish Scrubbie w/tutorial on: August 02, 2015 02:42:55 PM
Growing up, we always had these plastic mesh dish scrubbies in the kitchen. I've had trouble finding them in the store, so I decided to crochet a dish scrubbie of my own.



I used tulle that comes on a roll. It "smooshes" up to make a thick yarn when you work with it.  



I used a J hook for the first 2 rounds and an H hook for the 3rd round.

Directions:
Start with a J Hook
1. Start with a magic ring and chain 3 into the ring.
2. Round 1- Make 11 more dc into the ring. Tighten the magic ring and join with a slip stitch at the top of the starting chain 3. (12 dc)
3. Round 2- Chain 3 in the first stitch and make a second dc in the same stitch. Make 2 dc in each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch at the top of the starting chain 3. (24 dc)
4. Cut the yarn and weave the outside tail in towards the center, but do not cut the extra length of remaining yarn.



5. Make a second one, but do not cut and weave the tail. Remove the hook and lengthen the loop so you don't accidentally pull out any stitches.
6. Put the wrong sides together and tie the cut tail ends together, knotting well. Trim off the excess yarn so it is hidden between the two halves.
7. Switch to an H hook and, holding the two halves together, single crochet around, stitching through the edges of each half.
8. Join with a slip stitch, then cut and weave in the tail.

I've made several of these, for family and friends. People are always a bit skeptical at first, but once they use it, they always ask for another!

LOL, Calabaza! It's definitely different- it starts off with a blueberry flavor but has the "finish" of the ketchup spices. The book I got the recipe from (either Put 'Em Up or Put 'Em Up Fruit) says it goes great with sweet pitta fries!

Thanks, Calabaza! I definitely want to make more, but using linen or a heavy cotton. They will make great gifts!

Thanks, TheMistressT and alwaysinmyroom! And, yes, checking off a project that has been on the list for ages is definitely a happy feeling Smiley

dulcet, I probably could have done that, but it would have been extra work. Plus, on a couple of the towels, I was using scraps so I didn't have extra. But, you've given me an idea to try for a future project! Smiley

puzzled-penguin, I love that HP cross stitch so far! Can't wait to see the finished piece!

And, I have a question about the bonus opportunities... can a Zap project be used for one of those? I have a project that doesn't fit a prompt but is something I plan to make (and need) and will be made from thrift store items.

Bonus Points: UFO, Engineering, Community
Project Name: Kitchen Dishtowel Set
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440217.0
Brief Description: Several years ago, I bought some waffle-weave fabric to make dishtowels, but I never made them. In April, I cut the fabrics (I was going to use them for the Tea Time prompt in the Spring Games). But, it took until now for me to finally spend the time stitching them up. The project uses 5 different fabrics for the accent strips.

Project Name: Kitchen Towel with Fabric Accent
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440217.0
Brief Description: While helping my friend with her sewing project, I brought along the materials to make dishtowels. I had enough fabric to make one for my friend (because I'm Friendly), so she gave me a scrap of red fabric to make one that matched her kitchen.

I'll have purple and green posts coming later today! Smiley
