For those of you who want to learn to spin, or spin and want a way to do some recycling of sweaters with some bling……….  (I wish I had a spinning wheel…..this would be a very cool way to make unique yarns on the cheap!)

Last week I mentioned that I was working on sewing a round tablecloth for the side table by the reading chair in our master bedroom and today I got the how-to instructions posted.

Speaking of Christmas baskets and gift projects…

This would be a wonderful gift for someone homebound, or who spends a lot of time in or near a bed.   It's a caddy to hang from the side of a bed.  Looks like it can be personalized for the needs of the person getting the gift.

For all of you fabric lovers out there.  I think these collages are just wonderful, and a great way to use up scraps.

Homemade Swiffer Mop Pattern!  I'm going to use this pattern made out of microfiber dish towels I found at Family Dollar for cheap for the broom part, doing away with those throw away cloths.  I had bought a ton of those at Sam's more than a year ago, those are about used up now, so I need something non disposable.

Look at these cute “stamped” tea lights!  It starts at this site, she told how she used what she had to make it work, no special supplies needed!

Anyone needing/wanting to make a wreath, here are a bunch of interesting ideas.  Yes, many are Christmas themed, but the techniques could be used for any season or holiday.

Here they are on the dehydrator tray. The dehydrator on the lowest temp (95) worked well. A few hours in there instead of a few days air drying at room temp. Will try to post a pic after I add raffia hangers and bows.

Adding the birdfeeder link here as well……

If common sense were truly common, wouldn't there be more evidence of it?

That discussion on the blog about crocheting with different mediums made me remember this, it's not crochet, it's spool knitting…  with wire, it also shows using beads in it but the beads are optional.  I thought it had real potential!

Lion Brand Yarn has a lot of free knitting and crochetting patterns here, they do require registration I think but it's no hardship to do so, or at least it wasn't for me.

http://cache.lionbrand.com/cgi…..der.fcgi?/

(if that link doesn't work well could someone let me know? I'm registered there so it may act different for me)

Also, here's an Etsy site with patterns which are for sale.  I liked them a lot so thought I'd post the link here.  I don't know this lady at all, but thought you all might like it too.

Oh MAN!!!  I'm soooo excited about finding this tutorial!!!!  Have been planning for years to make some appliance covers, but have not managed to work out the math yet, and various other excuses to keep procrastinating BIG TIME and simply not getting the job done.  After all, how hard could it be to make what is basically a tote bag without handles to cover something?  Who needs a pattern??    Laugh

Over at http://tipnut.com/ today there is a link to here: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=551  There are complete instructions for how to measure your toaster and make a special little custom fit cover for it!  This method easily translates to any appliance you might need to cover.  Hurray!  :snoopy:
