A New Found Hobby

A couple  of weekends ago my mom and I were in OC and there was a lady that was selling these scarves that are all the new trend now. She was selling them for 10 dollars . She briefly showed us how she made them and what kind of yarn she used and so forth. Out of curiosity I got on line and found a bunch of videos on how to make them . There are many different ways that different people use. After watching several and figuring out which one I thought would work best for me , I thought to myself I can do that. So I went to Walmart and got some yarn and a crochet needle and started on my first scarf. After some trial and error and combining some of the different methods together to come up with my own I was on a roll. In 5 days I have made 6 scarves. I gave one of those 6 to my mom for her birthday. Here are some pictures of the ones I did.

Purple
Perriwinkle
not sure just a mixture




This is a combination of the periwinkle, the solid turquoise that I made my moms out of and the mixed one,

All of them stretched out on the table

Sew... I pulled out the old sewing machine

The other day I saw this on pintrest,
What you can do with your dish towels so they won't fall off the stove handle.

Well I loved the idea because I always have trouble with mine falling off so I did a couple of my towels
I had to cut one end of the towels and sew them back together so that when it is folded over the back side doesn't show.
I also only put 2 buttons on instead of 3. they are whie so they are a little hard to see from here






While I had my sewing stuff out, I came across some material that we had left from when we recovered our kitchen chairs. I started experimenting and this is what I came up with.
A plastic bag holder, not the prettiest thing but it works
