#1. The Magic of Felting
I love to knit and a couple of years ago I discovered "felting". Love it!! I made felted slippers for everyone, but the other night I found a free pattern on the internet for mittens - Felted Eskimo Mittens. They are quick and easy to knit and took me an evening to knit a pair.
This is how they look before they are felted...HUGE!!!
Now, for the felted magic...
Love the pattern, love the mittens and now I'm knitting a pair for everyone I know!
#2. Did You Know?
You don't have to throw out the leftover wax left in the bottom of the jar candles.
I use the wax in my tea light burner and the scented wax makes the entire house smell wonderful. Just use an old knife to dig out the wax from the bottom of the jar.
Break the wax into smaller chunks and I store in a plastic ziploc bag.
When ready to use, throw a piece into your burner and enjoy the wonderful scent.
No more wasting!
#3. Canvas Pillows
Just a couple of pillows I made for the couch in the family room. I love the gathered center. Looks like ruffles without being ruffles.
They were very easy to sew up, especially after I discovered how to ruffle/gather fabric using waxed dental floss. Perfect gathers every time!
That's it for the randomness. Thank you for stopping by...hope I didn't bore you too much! Have a great weekend.
