Project from the first One Yard Wonders book. It's the Obi Inspired Hot/Cold Pack. Love the way it turned out. Super easy to make. The most difficult part was filling the channels w/rice! Made it for a friend having back problems, but like it so much I think I'll make one for me too.
Wasn't really sure which category to post this in, but this makes the most sense to me. I wanted to make beach towels for the kiddos (and me too) for the summer. Here's my first attempt. Just sewed a simple flap on the short end of towel and used velcro as closure device. Just fold towel in half length-wise and roll up from bottom towards flap. You can roll up magazine, sunscreen, goggles, etc inside towel and they won't fall out. I thought on the next one I might add a small zippered pocket to store a little cash in.
Wasn't sure where exactly to post this, but this forum made the most sense. I made a couple of patches for a friend who's daughter just got the news she needs to patch one eye. Needless to say the child was NOT happy! So I made her a couple of special patches with her favorite characters on them.
Just in case anyone is interested in making one for a child they know, I included a picture of the lining.
Wanted to add a couple boy patches I made for another friend:
I am becoming reacquainted with crocheting. I crocheted a little in high school, many years ago... I made a few scarfs and wanted to learn to make some pretty flowers to accent them. I was having trouble with the written tutorial I was finding. I found a couple videos on youtube that were exteremly helpful by Sheruknitting. So pleased with how they turned out!
This is a "Blessings Jar" that I made for my secret sister at church. The idea is to jot down your blessings and then fold 'em up and place them inside the jar. Then on New Years Day next year, open your jar and read all your blessings. I plan to include a pretty pen and note pad. The jar is just an old spaghetti sauce jar. I covered the lid with fabric using mod podge and then made the cozy using the same fabric. The lettering is done using a fabric transfer that I printed. I was going to stitch it by hand, but the family has been sick with the flu and I was short on time.
