I decided I wanted to make a scarf or maybe an afghan using a Knit Wit, but I could not afford to pay the $20 for the two tools and directions. Especially when I only want the round one, and directions are available to download on the net. Sooo, my hubster used his key hole saw and cut a nice round circle of wood for me. I sanded it, glued a wooden thread spool to the center and painted it with some left over house paint. Then I tapped 12 small headed nails (think picture hanging nails) into the edges, and Ta Da, I have a Knit Wit for virtually no money. Now I can make rosettes til I am bored/tired/have enough to make either a scarf or an afghan. It is small enough to travel with me to Doctors visits and such. Good use of other wise lost time waiting. Being frugal is fun.

The homemade knit wit is very clever!

Life is too important to be taken too seriously.

Earlier today, I logged in to make a comment on Suzanne’s post about making pumpkin bread for Georgia and decided to stop by the forum.  Life has been kind of crazy and I haven’t posted the forum in a very, very long time, though I do stop by and read Suzanne’s blog quite regularly.

And when I saw the title of this thread, I realized that I had just posted a tutorial for coin purses that members here might be interested in making for Christmas gifts.

They are quick to make and the great thing about them is that for most of us crafters, the only thing we need to buy are the frames.  The purses are a great way to use up scraps of fabric that you’ve been saving.

A word of warning though… once you’ve made one coin purse, you’re going want to make more.  I’ve made about a dozen different ones and I’m always coming up with ideas for new ones and have to stop myself because one person can only use so many coin purses.  :o)

You can find the coin purse tutorial as well as many other tutorials on my blog:  http://www.supermomnocape.com

Thank you Squeegees Mom and Buckeye Girl.  I’m glad you like them. 

And you’re right Squeegees Mom, they will make great stocking stuffers.  Or to slip a Starbuck’s or Tim Horton’s or other gift card into and give as teacher gifts, etc.

I just found thisand I thought folks here would really love these!!!  I love my apron with the pockets and places to tuck things!  I’d hate to be without, so another one made this way would be very cool.
