Curtains

These are crocheted curtains using thread! Mom’s using them in her windows downstairs aka Dad’s Man Cave so you know they aren’t too girly!

This pattern must take awhile because she’s normally done in a flash! She’d been working on this for days, well putting it down and going back to it in between her many other projects. It was obviously worth the time though, I love the final look! It’s a fun, trendy pattern.

Knitting needle roll organizer

Ok, so Mom bought a whole set of double pointed knitting needles from stitchberry thru Amazon but needed to organize them.

Design Sponge had a cute pattern but she had to change it a bit since she didn’t have exactly what they used.

She didn’t have 1″ twill tape so she used 1/2″ bias tape.

The drop cloth frays easily so she sewed tape all the way around.

Her needles are very large, so she made the last few pockets 3″ instead if 1 1/2.

It rolls up nice and neat and she can easily see the needles she needs.

She’s going to use some of the empty pockets for scissors and such.

This is made from her painting drop cloth which only has a tiny piece left now!

Newborn diy owl sleep sack

Mom is in baby mode and making lots for little ones arrival!

She’s currently working on a newborn sleep sack which she hasn’t finished yet but the impatient daughter I am wants to share a photo now!

She is also knitting a hat to match!

The very top is ribbed followed by a row of adorable owls.

She is thinking of a buttoned bottom. The one she saw on the Internet has a closed bottom but buttons seem more practical and I agree!

I hope yours comes out as great as mom’s did!

Jaquard bunny

This is a cute baby stuffed animal that my little ones will absolutely love! Mom has been making and mailing things for our little one who isn’t here yet and our toddler claims it all for him as soon as it arrives! She will have to start making two of everything. 🙂

For this project Mom got the yarn on sale at Michaels.

You can find the pattern for this at http://www.bernat.com/product.php?P=1&LGC=babyjacquards

She ended up running out of yarn so used a pink and while yarn to finish the sides. She’a also thinking of embroidering a face on the bunny which would be cute but I think it’s fine without one.

Heart Pillow

Here is a great Valentine gift for a loved one!

Mom found this heart pillow pattern at http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/ss_i_love_u_heart.html. She used the knitting pattern and just left the pocket off!

Super cute and comfy cozy gift!

Give it a try, and if you add the pocket… you can stick in a special Valentine card.

Baby Bunny Blanket Buddy

The Baby Bunny Buddy Blanket… Wow, that’s a mouth full!

Mom made my son this blanket and it’s so snugly and adorable!

I love watching Kyler walk around holding this blanket, too cute!

The snugly feel creates a great security blanket. This could be a great gift for a little one, they really seem to like them!

She knitted this and said it wasn’t too complicated but it also comes in a crochet pattern. Gauge is not important for this project. Don’t be afraid to give it a go!
