I know this is really early, but Does anyone have any crafty ideas for Chanukah? It is extremely hard to find any craft patterns with a Chanukah theme. I like to crochet do plastic canvas and do some sewing. I know how to knit (but don't enjoy it as much as crocheting.)
I have an idea for a swap that I don't think has ever been done. A flower swap. The flowers can be crocheted, knitted, beaded, sewn, made of plastic canvas, ceramic, polymer clay, bread dough or what have you.
Another swap can be a kitchen swap. Not just potholders or dishcloths, but anything kitchen related. IE: towels, hot plate pads, trivets, bun covers, etc.
My daughter and I collaborated on these kittens. She likes to knit but doesn't like to assemble. So I put them together and put on the facial features. The pattern came from : Angry t-rex roars http://geobabe.livejournal.com/227621.html
Here is our kittens...I think they are cute and cuddly...
Here are some bunnies my daughter and I made. My daughter knit them and I assembled, stuffed and embroidered them. The 2 big ones are "Peter Rabbit" and the tiny bunny, I think I found somewhere on this Craftster site. The small pink one is from "Artsy Fartsy Mama".
Here are pictures of 2 plastic bag totes I crocheted out of plastic bags. The tan one has a zipper and is purse sized. It looks like a summer straw bag. The white one has a loop and button closure. They are both lined with muslin. I designed them myself.
