I was excited to see CreateForLess carries the Nile quilt pattern by Eleanor Burns – shown here in cream and brown batiks.

All that’s old in fashion, eventually seems to become new again. Hair scrunchies made their first appearance in the 1980s and ‘90s, and are once again popping up for sale. I for one, welcome these fashion accessories of my teenage years back into fashion with open arms, and celebrate their return to popularity by sewing up a bunch of them for my daughter and I to use.
I’m a pretty avid knitter, but I almost exclusively knit sweaters. Sometimes among the slew of never ending collars or that dreaded second sleeve (the feeling of accomplishment after finishing the first one never lasts long), I need to just finish a project. Whether it’s chunky yarn, or a small result, I sometimes need to remember how great it is to finish a project. Here are some of my favorite quick knits.
Anything for babies is guaranteed to be finished quickly and look adorable. The color change in these cute booties keeps the pattern interesting, but not so interesting you won’t finish in a couple of hours.
It seems like every child has that one stuffed animal or blanket that they take with them everywhere. I have this strange dream to make that animal for a friend or family member’s child. It’s a little weird, but I think I’ve got some good starting points!
Kids can draw their own monsters and you bring them to life! Who wouldn’t love to show off their own monster creation?
I love bracelets, they are my go to jewelry. Maybe it is because after my watched died about 15 years ago, I never replaced it, and my arm felt naked without something there. This bracelet is quick and easy to crochet, and after the first one, you will want to make more. I mean, you need one in every color, right?
Even though I’m from Portland, I’m not a fan of any weather other than blue sky. In the summer, I can be a little more open to the idea of clouds in the sky. I still prefer these little felt clouds to the real thing, though.
