Wow -- those slippers are so frickin' adorable! Was it difficult to work with such small items? I love 'em!

The slippers were small, but not difficult to work with at all.  The dress got a little tight at some points, but I had fun making things I don't usually get a chance to make.

Those bibs are awesome! What a fabulous set of fabrics Cheesy And Critterpants, you will come to learn that SantaCruzSugar is one of the coolest craftsters ever Wink

Ok, here are pictures of the fab package I got lone ago from bettflow. I apologize for the extreme delay in pictures Sad But here they are!

First a super great load of nine balls of cotton yarn(my favorite color is probably the blue/green combo on the left):


And two pairs of super cool stitch markers sure to be in use mucho. I think I like the red ones the best Cheesy (don't mind my ugly brown carpet Tongue):


Thank you so much, bettflow!! I can't wait to get crocheting Cheesy

Your very welcome Jo! I'm glad you like them all! It was fun searching for different quarters...I discovered two new fabric stores in my area in my pursuit, one of which is AWSOME and I will be back for more unique fabrics (thats where I found the Miller stuff).

and thanks Meg, your stuff is great too!

Is there a difference between a fat quarter and a regular quarter?

A regular quarter is a quarter yard by 45" (or 60" depending on the fabric roll) and a fat quarter is a a quarter yard by half of the 45"/60" length.

Anyone please correct me if I am mistaken, but that is my understanding. Smiley

quilting fabric comes 44" wide, which when folded is 22".  a fat quarter is when you take a yard of that (36" x 44) cut it in half one way (18 X 44) and then cut it in half the other way (18 x 22) - so fat quarters are generally a standardized 18" x 22".

a quarter yard is simply 9" wide (1/4 of 36") by whatever the width is. (generally 44-60")

So it is the same amount as a quarter yard but the square inches amount is arranged differently?
