Very simple and quick project. Used one piece of fabric per appliance with very little cutting. I made a cover for a food processor and blender. Toaster is next! I didn't use any interfacing to provide structure to the fabric since I wanted these to be easy to store and wash. Very easy to fold or roll into a ball when the appliance is in use.

After many drives to the desert called Sacramento, I found myself burning in the passenger seat with the sun hitting me. My sad excuse for a visor would not block all of the sun, so I came up with the idea of a visor extender. I hope to expand more on this one day to include a shade of some sort to cover the window. But for now, this helps.
I have include several pockets and even a small zippered pouch.
I had a request from Mom to make her a light a frilly scarf that she can wear in the Fall/ Spring seasons. The scarf in general was a simple knit stitch. I made it narrow for a lighter effect and to wrap around a couple times. The ruffle edge was harder than expected. I followed a YouTube video for instruction. To finish off the scarf, knitting the ruffle edge backwards was not an accomplishable task. So, I knitted a separate ruffle and then knitted the two pieces together.

I really like the look and versatility of infinity scarves and since I don't have one of my own, I made one! Again, I went on YouTube and found an instructional video. I had a really hard time casting on, but after that this was very easy! Now that I know what I'm doing, I could make one of these in 30 minutes. This one used bulky yarn, which is what you want, and 2 balls of it. Next time I will cast 6 versus 12 to make more narrow. What do you think?
