Sometimes we all feel like being crafty, but we don't want to start something elaborate or go to the craft store.

What is your favorite craft that takes abut two hours or less?

Post them here so we can all find something to do when we just have to craft at 11 pm and we don't want to have search through 99 pages of searches for the words "quick and easy with tute".

It wold be good if it was made from stuff that most craftsers have at home but anythings fine.

Lets see if we can make a billion page topic.

 Oh, yeah, If you know of a tute, post the link please.

Quickie crafts .. I make ATCs with whatever I can find in the house .. or little flowers or other bits and bobs with crochet. .. or soap (but that's not very quick).

I knit or crochet small items -- dishcloths, baby hats, or flowers -- or just mess around with stitch patterns/look at patterns/dream of future projects.  I'd love to see some easy embroidery or handsewing projects -- it's something that I'd like to try but my skills are minimal and I don't have a sewing machine.

I make little wallets. I hand sew them for myself. It would take less time with a sewing machine but at 11 i really dont want to turn it on. lol. Just grab some fabric and start sewing. lol. I usually dont do zippers. I sew it to where the opening isnt huge and gapping and just sew a button or two on there to keep it closed.

Im excited to see what everyone else has for quickie craft.

As much as I love my sewing machine, I'd rather hand sew anyday, ahhh if only it would hold up better.

I have a handfull of easy dress patterns for my girls, ages 3 & 5. I can knock out 2 in an hour easy because their chest measurements are the same- only the lengths are different. Stack & whack FTW.

I have a couple of books of differant granny squares and every now and then I randomly pick one of the patterns and work it up with whatever worsted weight colors I have laying around at the time and a G-sized hook.

When I'm done, I toss it in a box containing the previous ones I've made.  I figure that some day I'll discover that I have enough of them to put together into a wow-pow sampler afghan.

Kinda neat to think that a bunch of relaxing quickies will add up to a big something that would have otherwise stressed me out trying to accomplish.  Cheesy

One of mine - especially when I am sick in bed and havent got much of a concentration threshold is pen wrapping

they are part of my fundraising drive and have sold several already.... Just wrap the pens on yarn or ribbon, and I have seen some have beads on the end too....

Do you glue the ends of the yarn on the pens, or what?
