Remember that I mentioned local fairs? I did have a great time creating something for one of the fairs! My mom was great at saving the "offcuts" of fabrics, left over after making her dresses, or her grandkid's pjs, or sheets for the crisis pregnancy center. She'd been saving fabric for a LONG time - so, when I read that one of the categories for one of those local fairs required creating a project using 60's polyester fabrics, I just went to mom's overflowing fabric scrap storage. I found a bag FULL of scraps, and bits of yardage - and I dreamed up this little project:
It's a throw rug, knitted with 1" strips of polyester fabric, AKA crimpolene! There are enough strips left over to make at least 2 more (I told you that she saved her fabric scraps! It got me a 1st place ribbon though, so it was definitely worth the endless hours I put into it!)
I also made a few cards - this one for a friend at church....
And finally, my oldest nephew is getting married in a month, and there was a bridal shower this afternoon. The bride-to-be loves owls, so I had to make these potholders for her. She loved them!
