I haven't been doing a lot of crafting but these are all from scrap stash, every single little bit of it. As tiny as it all is, ha ha.

craftylittlemonkey That bunny in the altoid tin is absolutely adorable!  I am a huge fan of bunnies, tiny things, and objects that fit in their own boxes, so it hits all my buttons.

And now for my traditional end-of-the-month project dump.

Starting with a project or two for the bazaar at my grandmother's church.

Teeny Tiny Little Note-pads.  They're 3 x 4.5 inches, and embellished with random buttons, bows, and those little flowers I made last month without a purpose.

Post-it Note Covers.  No I don't know why I had 24 pads of post-it notes scattered throughout the house either.  Some are embellished, some are plain, but everything's from stash except the velcro dots holding them closed.

I also finished off a UFO that had been about three years in the making.  The only problem is in the intervening time my gauge changed considerably, so the mitts aren't quite the same size.  Oops!  Not sure what to do about that.

Color:  Brown
Pattern: Plaid
For: Charity
Challenge 1:  Host a crafternoon with friends.  Its a great way to make gifts in bulk ahead of the holiday season.  And fresh eyes looking at your stash may find new ways to use materials that would never occur to you.
Challenge 2: Make more than one of something.  If you've already got the supplies out, it might be nice to make a batch, some to keep, some to give away.

Kook, i love that you're still working with the seahorse material.
I can't wait to see your witch. I love your dolls.

lady4feet, the baby sandals are adorable! And the ripple blanket is pretty, oopses and all.

trina, that is a great-looking card. Homemade cards are just the best. Really like the zendoodle/quote bookmark idea.

anna, i am loving the tree pillowcase. Those letters are so cute! I think my nephews are each going to need a set of those. What a sweet swaddler.

Of course you can join any time! Welcome to the madness, Craftsunderground!

gaudi, that mitt is gorgeous. I hear ya on the gauge problem. Even starting a second mitt a day later, my gauge changes. The only thing i can think of to remedy that is to try blocking (if you haven't already).

Some of these have been done for a while, but i just took the pictures.

Infinity scarf:



There are a few more pictures on this blog post.

A couple of the several diamond band hats I've made lately:

And a friend of mine asked for some coffee sleeves. Getting a jumpstart on her Christmas list.

Did i show you Frank yet?

Oh, and i finished the green cabled mitts.

guadiknight--love your mitts...I suggest never putting both your hands out in front at the same time...that way, there will be no comparison and no one will know... Wink  Blocking might help as well...they are too lovely not to wear a lot!

bananaleg...wowie...I just love those hats...and what cute cuffs...and of course, I love the neckwarmers...so pretty...you are just as proficient in your crocheting and your knitting skills

bananaleg - I love the yarn you used for the infinity scarf.  I wish my stash had such gorgeous colors in it!  And the Frankenstein cuff is really, really cute.

Oh, they are just so neat! I love the green cabled mitts.
Lovely challenge, Gaudiknight. And you can always relay on the good advise from Alwaysinmyroom  Wink.
(The mitt is so lovely - I hope you are able to block them to size.)

Easily craftstracted!
