New Wash Cloth

Just thought I would share one of my wonderful kitties modeling my new bath cloth. I made one last weekend and realized that I LOVE crocheted wash cloths much better than store bought ones. So I made a more pretty one and I love it. I hope you like it too!

Crochet Cue-Tip Cup.

(sorry the picture is so bad)

I decided I had to have one when I was cleaning the bathroom this morning. So here you have it. I will post pictures sometime this weekend. This is the first pattern I actually wrote down. You can sell any items you make just please if someone asks refer them to my blog so they can get it to.

Crochet Cue-Tip Cup

- Small amount of yarn
- Cardboard tp roll
- Hot glue gun

I cut the tp roll to the height I wanted it and then I taped the bottom of it so they wouldn't fall out. You could crochet a bottom. Just a flat circle or something but I was in a hurry.

For the crocheted cover:

1.Ch 25 join with slip stitch
2.Ch 2, DC in each stitch around and join to top of Ch 2
3. Repeat step 2 till you reach the height of your tp roll. * You may have to single crochet around if the dc is too tall for the last round but you still come up short.*
Fasten off!

Then I just sliped it over the cardboard roll and hot glued it in place in a few spots. Dropped in some cue-tips and now it resides in the upstaires bathroom. I will probably have this place totally covered in crochet everything here soon. Enjoy!

Christmas Crochet

I picked up a wreath from the dollar store and a bunch of christmasy nick naks and and for under $4 I made the following =-]

Then I pulled out the christmas yarn and made a homemade frosty. He's my first ami without a pattern. Yup I made him up myself. Wasn't too hard and I'm very proud of myself! Last christmas I could barely chain! Operation Homemade christmas is well on it's way!
