My computer crashed and I lost my copy of this pattern. None of the above links work. Does anyone have this pattern to share? Thanks in advance.

I do! PM me your email address and I'll send them to you.

Cute book, CLM! I love that scrappy fabric. I bet the texture is amazing.


I finished this afghan for my little one - just in time for warmer weather!  Roll Eyes It started as a stash buster, trying to use up the yarn I made Minions hats with. Of course, I had to buy more because I ran out before it was big enough. Every time.

My big project, right now, is my main bathroom. Yikes!  Cheesy This can't be done soon enough.

I have a fondness for macram in general and plant holders in particular. My gran used to make them, they get me all nostalgic. In a nod to vintage crafts I'd like to make a few but I think I'll use tshirt yarn from my stash to use it up and because it will be so colourful. I may have to incorporate rope though because that stuff is all so stretchy. Any thoughts on that girls?



My mom always had a half-finished planter lying around, but they really remind me of my grandma's lake cottage... she's always had so many plants in every nook and cranny of her home.

I saw a tute for plant hangers made from jersey knit on Pinterest: http://www.brit.co/diy-macrame-hanging-planter/

Looks like t-shirt yarn would work just fine by itself if you stretch it out before using.

Awesome t-shirt quilt! I've always wanted to try that.

I've been making more plant hangers. This time, macrame. I can't stop. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy I think this is my new favorite thing.

I need to learn how to make those t-shirt bags...I have a box of old t-shirts that are not good enough to give to charity but nice enough not to throw out! Is there a simple link on how to make them?




Sorry about that. I should have included the link. Here ya go: https://www.mommypotamus.com/no-sew-t-shirt-tote-bag-tutorial/?utm_content=buffer118e5&utm_medium=social&utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Sera unravled - that quilt top is amazing! What a gigantic project.  Shocked

I've been busy, I just haven't been posting as I finish things. Swamped with garden planning and birthday parties.

I've been baking:

This shirt started out as a men's dress shirt, and is now a comfy and modest tunic, though still a bit wrinkled, oops:




I turned some t-shirts into tote bags (no-sew method):



My toddler can't keep his little fingers off of the LEGOs, so I had to do something to keep him out of our storage cart. Luckily, I had this awesome fabric from when I wanted to make drapes for our basement windows but never got around to it.  Cheesy :



I also finished off a couple hanging planters for my kitchen window. Nothing planted yet. (I have 4-5 more in various stages of completion , but let's focus on what's actually done. lol):

TansysMaySigh- What a beautiful skirt - so romantic looking.

I made a couple macrame necklaces for my DS1 and myself with various semi-precious stones. His is just like mine, but with rainbow cording.

Yofi, that stand is beautiful - nice work! I have a dresser in that wood that's in need of refinishing, too.

I finished the crochet market bag for my mother-in-law's birthday present. It's lined in cotton jersey. The lace pattern kind of reminds me of the radioactive symbol (hard to see in the picture, though).  Cheesy
