Other things I have worked on that I haven't posted

Just to showcase my sewing talent (eh hem), here are some things I have made in in the past.


Here is another one of my clothes pin hangers.  They are very handy for things besides clothes pins.  I use mine for all my knitting/ crochet needles.  I made this one for my Mom about a year or more ago.  It still hangs in there with the conditions they live in.  I took this picture on my recent trip out there and the one below I took in August 2012.





With no pattern on hand, I made this BBQ apron for my Dad based solely on measurements   I must of thought he was 10 feet tall, look at the length on that!! Thankfully when he washed it, it shrunk and now fits perfectly.  Do you still wear it +Clark Jillson ?


I originally made this shirt for me, but it didn't fit.  So I gave it to my Mom.  Looks great on her!


I made this sewing machine cover out of scraps.  No pattern and was very easy.


 I made this apron from a pattern with some modifications for Mom.  It's cute but probably not very practical.  She pulls it out of hiding when I come over :))   

A knitting fool...or maybe just a fool :)

So I have been VERY behind in posts and projects.  With some more time on my hands these days, I have the chance to work on some things again...yay!

I am getting into knitting and I am pretty new at this so please don't laugh at my attempts here :) Our neighbor has helped me with learning knit and pearl.  The rest I have learned from YouTube.


This scarf took me forever to make! The yarn is perfect and was given to me by my neighbor.  I made this for my 6 yr. old niece Nora as her Christmas gift (2013).  I can't wait to see her with it on :) I brought it with me on my visit to my parents and finished it there.  I used a knit stitch for the entire scarf.


This scarf is for me :) I bought this very soft Made in the USA yarn and wanted a thick scarf for whenever I take a trip to some cold weather.  I started this scarf with a plan in mind but then I just went in a different direction depending on how it looked.  I want to make one for my Mom, but I would do it differently.  Larger needles, and a different stitch.  I used knit and pearl stitches for this which made it very tight. I finished this last night.


So what is next? I will start another scarf for my niece Ellie and a couple sewing projects I promised to my family.
