Even though things have been pretty busy around here (and I apparently gave up on blogging-oops!) I've still found the time to get a project finished here and there.
First up: crayon rolls!! Our ward opening social had a silent auction to raise money for our ym/yw programs. People signed up with baked goods, babysitting, date night baskets and all sorts of hand made items. I was really impressed with every one's talents! I made these two crayon rolls as my contribution. They are a fun and simple project I was able to make with scraps. If you are interested on a tutorial, you can find it here.
The next thing I made was a cardigan onesie. I love these!! They were so so simple to make; easily took less than an hour. Best of all is how adorable James looks in them! I used this tutorial to make them. I also made some bow ties too but don't have a picture of those.
Next item is a temple/garment/dress bag. I offered to teach some ladies in my ward how to make these for one of our Relief Society activities. Only a handful of women signed up to make them, but that's ok! It made teaching much easier!!
I love how it folds up and it also has a large pocket in the middle for your shoes, envelope, etc. I love the fabric as well. I don't know if you can see but there are bees on it which I thought was perfect for a temple bag, ha ha. I followed this tutorial but had to do some guess work in the end. It wasn't the easiest tutorial to follow.
Finally, I made these adorable owl hats with my moms help while she was in town. Several of my friends have made them for their kids and I used to make crochet beanies in high school all the time so I knew I could make one too. It was really fun to crochet again and was a fairly simple pattern to follow. If you want to make one I used this tutorial.
