1  Crocheting for baby.... is it safe? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by bethntim on: April 18, 2017 10:29:02 AM
I have a new niece or nephew due in June (hooray!) and I wanted to crochet a bassinet with handles similar to this one

but I didn't know how safe it would be for the baby to sleep in
Also do I make a removable pad for the bottom for some extra cushion and if so, what are the guidelines for doing so for a baby?
Has anyone made anything similar or can lead me in the right direction.

Or....should I just scrap the idea and stick with blankets and loveys for the newest little pooper?

5  Crock Pot Risotto-with vegan and vegetarian option in Recipes and Cooking Tips by bethntim on: April 09, 2017 03:55:49 PM
Who doesn't love risotto?  I mean, the creamy, sticky, Arborio rice concoction is a hit in my house, but you know what's not a favorite of mine??  How labor intensive making risotto is.  Who has time to stir a dish non-stop for 45 minutes?!?  Not I, said the fly.
But wait!  There's a solution to our dilemma, the crock pot!  That wonderous oft forgot kitchen appliance that makes risotto a breeze.  Fool your guests into believing you slaved over a hot cook-top all day.
Gather the troops:
Crock pot (duh)
1 cup Arborio Rice
3 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons butter
Vegetarian?  No problem!  Use vegetable stock
Vegan? GREAT! Use vegetable stock and sub olive oil for butter
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy
Place all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low for 2 hours.  If you want it cheesy, stir in 1/2 cup of your favorite cheese (I like Parmesan) the last 5 minutes of cooking

It's really hard to photograph risotto....

maybe in a smaller bowl it'll be more photogenic............

or maybe with the entire non-vegan friendly dinner, complete with prime rib, potato skins, and caprese

Yarnspirations is to thank for this fine pattern!  Worked up super quick and was a great stash buster, the only yarn I purchased was the white.

7  zippered keying coin pouch (with tutorial) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bethntim on: February 11, 2017 06:35:03 PM
no in progress shots but this was SO easy I think you guys will have no probs following along.
4-5 inch circles (I used the same fabric throughout but you can choose an outer fabric and a lining fabric, in that case 2 circles of each)
1-7 inch zipper
1-1 inch D-ring
start by cutting 4 total 5 inch circles (4 of the same fabric, or 2 outer 2 lining)
cut 1-1 inch square from outer fabric (this is the strap for the d-ring)
fold the 1 inch square in half, right sides together and sew a scant 1/4" seam allowance, turn right side out, press with seam in the middle and top stitch down both sides, set aside
cut 2 of the 5 inch circles in half, either 2 of the same, or 1 outer 1 lining
sandwich 2 of the halves (either 2 of the same or 1 outer 1 inner) centered on the zipper and sew a scant 1/4" seam allowance, fold back and press open. sandwich the remaining 2 halves on the other side of the zipper and sew together, fold open and press again.  now top-stitch close to the edge of the fabric to keep it out of the way of the zipper. Open the zipper about halfway (to make it easy to turn later), take the 2 full circles and lay them wrong sides together, take the 1 inch square that you sewed earlier, fold in half, and pin in place over the zipper at the open part, with the raw edges on the outside, then take the two full circles and place on top, you will now have 4 layers of fabric and the d-ring strap to sew through.
carefully sew around the edges with 1/4" seam allowance taking care when sewing over the zipper.
trim zipper and excess fabric and turn right side out. I used chop sticks to help turn the bag to push out the edges. top-stitch around outer edges to give a more finished look. Attach the d-ring and voila!

No tutorial for this but I found this pattern for the pouch on Dog Under My Desk
One thing to note, flip the pattern for your lining fabric Smiley
