I've also decided to add the additional restriction of only spending $50.

Good idea with the budget criteria.  Without setting an actual limit, I'm trying to be more conscious of my spending too.  Some projects require spending (ie: soapmaking, medicine-making, etc) and I do try to buy supplies from second-hand stores (ie: yarns, fabrics, beads, buttons) but my focus is to use more of the "trash to treasure" method from now on.

For my Wee House, I allowed myself to buy foam board and glues, but everything else will have to be found objects or those made from my various stashes.

The pattern I used for the womens panties is McCalls 6128 , It was a very easy to follow and sew pattern.
The childrens are an online download pattern from thatdarncat .  The pattern is very thourough (sp?) and fit well.  
Whoosh just checked for the link.  The pattern has gone up in price since I purchased it.  I believe Hyenacart might have a pattern too, not totally sure.

Thanks!

I love the t-shirt scarves, waggonswest, especially the brown one in your tute!  The little tabby twist.  One of those should have definitely been on my list...

I think I have just about everything for the deodorant!  Thanks for the recipe!

I really like the navy and yellow combo...I really don't need insulation for my lunch since we have a fridge at work, but I am tired of carrying it in my crochet bag! Cheesy  I like the sides of the bags to be expandable like that...

I am saving colorful t-shirts for some scarves!  Thanks for the tutorial...

dollface - I'm looking forward to seeing all your yarn! I LOVE looking at handspun, I used to stalk and drool over the Fiber Friday posts. I always want some, but I wouldn't have much to do with it! I can knit and crochet, but I don't really have the patience for them Smiley The yarn you just posted it delicious. Can't wait to see more!

On the homemade deodorant subject, I LOVE using homemade. The recipe my hubby and I use is equal parts baking soda, cornstarch and coconut oil. (we mix about 1/3 c baking soda, 1/3 c cornstarch, then stir in a little of the coconut oil at a time until it's thick and not runny anymore)  It works like magic (no stink even after 24 hours) and it's so simple! If I want a scent, I just spray on some body splash after I apply the deodorant.

I resorted to this when all the "natural" deodorants readily available in a small town like mine either didn't work or made my armpits BURN.

Here is the my first handspun yarn, using a drop spindle.  It's not the best photo quality but it's all I could manage. 



The roving came from Zombie_Queen, who hand dyed it, and it took me about six hours to do.  I tested on some samples she had sent me and then jumped right into the project.  Then I decided to have a go at plying.  I used Knit Pick's Swish DK, in Persimmon Heather.  It's a 100% Superwash Merino Wool. 

I overspun a bit with the roving, and underspun in some areas with the plying, but overall I'm really pleased with how it came out.  I think being able to spin my own fibers will make my crochet projects that much more special.  And it's nice to finally be dabbling into new crafts.

Scarfapalooza!

This one is a display for work:

It's Bernat Mosaic, to which I'm allergic, but I love it so much it was totally worth the itchy hands and buzzy tongue. Tongue

This one is for me to wear:


Like so:

Those are lovely scarves!  The first one has sort of an underwater feel to it
