My Crochet Slippers

Summer is coming to the end, perhaps the fact that school starts soon, made ​​me eager to start knitting crochet slippers.

Since I did not have a pattern or instructions, I decided to do an Internet search.
I found two sites with free tutorials that interested me, two different patterns
but both are original. If you have interest in making these crochet slippers, I
invite you to visit my blog, there you will find all the information.
In case you want to see more pictures of my slippers, I add them here.


Have a nice day.

Sleeping Towel/Mat

Hi fellow crafters!  I hope you're all well and crafting away.  What's everyone working on?  Crocheting?  Knitting?  Sewing?  Please share!!!  I need some fresh inspiration.  I was looking back and realized I never tried chicken scratch.  When I get a chance I'm wanting to make some throw quilts out of scrap fabric.  It would be cool if a couple of the squares were chicken scratch.  But on to today...

I've been working on another round of being sick.  What's up with that?!?!?!  So I have very little to show for my time.  Today, I whipped up a sleeping towel for my daughter.  Please tell me why they must nap on a towel at school instead of a mat?  I completely cheated on this craft because let's face it travel pillow cases are cheap ($2.24) AND I found one that's zebra print just like I wanted.  So what did I actually do you asked?  I sewed the bottom of the pillow case to the top of the towel.  I know you're blown over right.  Hehehe...  Well, my only claim to fame is embellishing the front with a couple hearts, one being minky, and my daughter's name.  Because I still don't feel 100% I wanted to just put "Kj" nice and big in the middle, but my little rat wanted her full name.  Ugh...
Oddly when ironing the pillow case it left zebra stripes on my ironing board.  Good times. =)

Alright, I need some chicken soup or sorbet for my sore throat so "TAG!" you're it.  Post your recent or not so recent projects.
