lol sheepblue--love your hairy balls (twss) Cheesy

It takes a lot of hand work (twss) to get them nice and smooth...but, aren't they neat!?

I love your little felt piece...the birch trees are looking at me and the house is smiling...was that on purpose? Cheesy

LOL yeah I almost rubbed my hands raw doing it  Grin

And the faces in the felt piece were not intentional but now that you mention it I totally see it LOL. That house is giving some major cheese.  Cheesy

I make wool balls by sticking them in an old knee high stocking and running them through the washer and dryer a few times.

I'm making curtains today if all goes well.  Both my daughter and I have the flu but I am losing my mind laying in bed with nothing to do, and have no hand sewing projects ready...so curtains it is.  They aren't on my list that I posted here but they have been on my mental list so it's all cool, lol!  Cheesy

I hope you guys get too feeling better soon! I've got the flu myself, and it feels so wrong to lay around and not craft anything.

Do you just use them for your dryer? Did you post on this board?

I did not really pay too much attention to the hairy-ness of the felt balls until it was mentioned by sheepblue...

oh--you use them for dog toys? (peeked at your list)...they must be smooth!

I imagine I could have gotten it to be smoother if I kept going but my hands were hurting by the point that I quit so I wasn't going to make it.

Oh wow, you have all been busy with crafting!

I have finished the second item (pictures are still in the camera) and will draw the pattern for my sister's skirt tomorrow.

1. Wallet for me
2. Wallet for a friend (Birthday in 8.1.)

3. Shirt for my youngest sister
4. Shirt for me
5. Skirt for my middle sister
6. Skirt for me too
7. Coat for a friend
8. Bibs for my friends' baby
9. Fabric book for the same baby. I'm planning to make appliqued and embroidered animals.
10. At least a hand made card for my middle sister if she graduates in the spring. Maybe a present too.
11. Afghan for my youngest sister. It would be combined Yule and Birthday gift, so I have a whole year to make it.
12. Learn to make sweetened potato casserole
13. Travel sewing kit (for fixing clothes when travelling)


heini are you crafting a travel sewing kit...like a needle book?  I made use of a second hand
?coin/makeup? purse...I've got several buttons in the bottom of it, folding scissors, two needles and baggie of small spools from some sewing kit...it's worked out great.  If I have a button to sew onto my knitted items...that is my little kit to throw into my craft bag. Cheesy
Something like that, haven't designed it yet and I'm not sure how much stuff I want to put in it. At least needles, few different coloured threads, safety pins, scissors and some buttons. I'll sew the whole thing myself, because then I can make a pocket for scissors, pocket for buttons etc. AND because I have too many fabric scraps.

We were in England last August and my BF broke his trousers on the first or second day. Luckily a friend had needles and thread with him, even though I expected he would be the last person to travel with sewing supplies. I've been thinking since that it would be handy to have a small sewing kit that I could easily take with me.

Both! I use them in my dryer and I am going to make some for the dog as well- I bought him one once and he *loves* it!  I'll post them soon, the last 2 are still going through some laundry cycles to tighten up. This set is for the dryer, then I want to make 2 for the dog and a set for a secret friend.  Cool

I've finished a few more things this week but they are for swaps, so not to be posted until received (aaaaargh, the waiting, it burns!).  If I could figure out where I put the bag of stuffing after I made a horde of octopi in December then I'd have two more things to post.  They were small octopi, I'm sure I should have some left.  Somewhere.  In theory. 

I have worked very very hard to teach the dogs and cats to STAY AWAY FROM MY YARN.  I can't imagine giving any of them a wool toy.   Grin
