A Little Crafting

Believe it or not, I did a little sewing this week. Piedmont in Atlanta needed some things and I was out of little sewn wraps. I made 6 and have a few more cut out. They are super easy to make and do fill a great need. The satin was from the dress I cut up earlier this year to make this gown. These guys were made on my trip out to California in October. I'm just now getting around to posting a picture. The pattern is here....don't look closely though as you will see that I didn't do the right stitches. I guess that's what happens when you haven't crocheted in 18 months.

Btw, if any of you out there want to make some, make them small. Sharon (doesn't blog) has sent EGF 111 of them in the last few weeks. I told her that she must have arms of steel!! Mine are abou half the size of the ones she made.

Those are very nice, Candy. I've toyed with the idea of using my wedding gown. All it does is take up room in the garage, you know?

Wow, you have certainly been busy while I have been away from the computer. How did the memory box team building go? The photo of the kids in their halloween costumes is great! They grow too fast. I hope Hannah is feeling better.

Wow! I'm still marveling at 111 gowns.

wow, 111 gowns?

OK, i looked at the crochet pattern seeing as i have just learned to crochet. When you say 'make them small', do you mean do fewer stitches (chain less than 30 to start) or use a thinner yarn/smaller hook?
