Love your un-paper towels, ChrisSews!  I need to figure out how to make some without a serger.  What kind of fabric did you use for them?

I used birdseye cotton.  It's the same material that's used for traditional trifold diapers so you can usually find it at shops that sell diapering materials.  It's really absorbent so that's the advantage of using it over other types of material.  I've ordered mine from a couple of places online.  I've also made them with one side flannel and the other birdseye.  Lots of sewing machines have a fake serger stitch or and overlock stitch, I bet something like that would work for the edges.  You could also sew them inside out, turn them, and then just topstitch around the edges.  

Thanks! I'll put um on the list!  Wink

I totally love those owl hats!  The rainbow is my fave.

This board is SERIOUSLY bad for my crafting ADD!!!  **Must stick to my list no matter how many completely awesome projects I see posted on here day after day after day...**  I'm loving all of the new projects, especially the hats that have been added!

As for the challenge:

1. Colour ~ I have an idea already  Wink
2. New technique ~  Does my new foray into the world of pottery count?  My first class was on January 30th, but I the projects I began won't be ready until mid/late February...
3. Swap ~ Check & Check!  I am currently signed up for the Simple/Easy Swap & am looking forward to signing up for the February birthday swap
4. Quantity ~ Pretty sure this won't be a problem Smiley

Speaking of pottery, here is #13 off of my list...  Here is a photo of me learning pottery at my first class   Grin

I agree!  I think I will add some fabric/fleece hats to my list since fabric is what I need to destash this month!

Lucky you, Koreena!  Pottery is something I admire but never got into!  Completed projects in February will count!

I keep adding to my list as well...I need a clone!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

I'm probably going to be a failure monkey on challenges this month.  I absolutely should not be encouraged to take up anything new.  I already basically live in the Michaels-themed episode of Hoarders.  Well, unless it's something new that uses up all the crap I already have.

Melly - I adore Beatrix Potter Smiley Some of my favorite childhood stories! That x-stitch is lovely.
Chrissews - I love the orange pillow with the circles!
Katara - Pretty fascinator! I wish I had some place to wear big pretty stuff like that.
Dreadfully - Your owl hats are awesome. So cute.
Koreena -  I took my first pottery class last week, TOO! The bowl you're making looks awesome. I can't wait to see more Smiley

Cackle received this altoids tin I made for the Vices Tin Swap, so yay! I can post it!

One of her themes was tacky sci-fi movies and I couldn't resist it. I love reading Sci-fi Smiley I put more details in its own thread:
