Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day

As we celebrate Memorial Day, let’s not forgot the reason. Remember and honoring our Veterans and those who gave all.

On this Memorial Day 2019, thanks to all our Veterans here and gone. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

If you are looking to craft for a cause, may I suggest Warmth for Warriors. It is an organization who honors our troops and Veterans through crafting hats and mini stockings for Christmas. If you are looking for a crafting group such as this, please join us over at the Warmth for Warriors group on Ravelry.

Denim Dog Toy

Denim Dog Toy

Here is a real quick and simple dog toy you can make from recycled denim. It doesn’t even require any sewing and can be made in just a matter of minutes.

Take an old pair of denim jeans and cut around the lower pants hem and then continue up the side seam to make one continuous strip of denim. I cut up the side seam 27 inches and the hem length was 18 inches on my piece of cut denim.

Next I just started tying knots using either end of the denim strip. Using knots and then threading the long end through the knots, I create this 8 inch long denim dog toy.
You could also join the ends together to make a circle by either sewing the ends together or by joining them with a knot.

And there you have it,

Loopy Mini Christmas Stocking

Loopy Mini Christmas Stockings

Here is a new twist on an old mini Christmas stocking pattern. This loopy trim option uses the chain 8 fold-over cuff that I wrote about in this recent post.

Instead of chaining 12 for the upper leg portion of the stocking, just chain 8. Once you complete the leg portion, you are ready to add the loopy edging trim.

Attach yarn at back of stocking. I used a contrasting yarn as shown.
