Katelyn's Kitchen Scrubby

Hot thing right now is to make your own kitchen scrubby. Everyone's using the red heart scrubby Sparkle or some other kinds. Some have been making them for years using tulle or mesh.  I have written up my own pattern like I usually do and decided this time that I would share it with you guys. My youngest is getting her first apartment, College apartment, still none the less she's moving out of the dorm so I've decided to make her some nice kitchen wares. I made some washcloths on the knitting loom and now decided to make some scrubbies that are crocheted. I can never share my loom patterns because I don't know how to read or write those. Only in my jibberish where I can remake them. Lol.
So here you go-
Materials-
Red heart scrubby Sparkle in ice pop
Lily sugar n cream cotton in swimming pool.
J hook - I crochet tight
Work holding two (2) strands together.

Ch. 3

 Hello- LONG time not here.
I was really sick for a while and now trying to play catch up on lots of things.
I havent been making cards lately, I miss it and really wish to. I had a class, but showed you those already, I think. LOL (might be my nest post)
I am trying to learn how to balance time better. Quick scan of FB is needed 3 times a day as that is how you find out things. Personal or otherwise. I also post my creations on facebook with a dollar amount for sale.
Were going to be gutting our frontroom and insulating, dry wall and maybe electric. Bought new furniture and now planning paint and flooring (kinda sucks) is definitely a challenge.
Enough with my blabbing.

This is a crochet blanket followed my own pattern for it. I crocheted it with a sc, dc for 3 rows then a row of hdc. I used the Premier Sweet Rolls in Spearmint I purchased at Joanns. I used a H wait maybe an I hook. Cant remember. lol Its for my friends first grandbaby. Shh dont tell. :)


I LOVED making these!!! I made these for my little grand daughter. She loves them and honestly so very simple to make. Joanns sells this material and all you have to do is uses a zig zag stitch up the one side. I used decorative elastic for the straps. Inexpensive and fun. So many designs and so much fun. My husband asked if I was done. LOL
When I was done I had some of the White elastic left. It was my friend/neighbors birthday and I was running behind, like everything else. Truly not really sure I wanted to gift her but just a card, anyhow, So I made this bracelet.
I have a shelf we added above our tv to hold my mice and lighthouses, then the fall village and Christmas village.I am now adding a spring/summer village so Charming Tales mice and Northerlights lighthouses might be up for sale. LOL
I made a St. Pats curtain, cute but decided it should be shorter .
Made an Easter one, Will have to make a spring/summer one next. I do however like the shorter one better.
This is the material close up, Took the last they had from Hobby Lobby. It is measured at 9" in length and the shelf is 6' long so I had just under a yard and with luck it was just the right way and enough. I actually have a piece left. Cant wait to see what happens to that.

I currently have a Knitting Loom fetish. Thanks to my friend Kym. She blames me, I blame her- all good. This is a slouch hat. again done to my own beat. Someday I will learn to read knitting patterns- then look out. LOL This hat was made out of yarn bought at Joanns- they have bags of unlabeled yarn and if you catch it on sale and know your yarns- you can get some high end for cheap. This is uber soft and she doesnt want to give it up. However, I make 1 hat for each week (52) that gets donated. I think I have 3 more to do, but have catch ups first. 

Another loomed hat with that bag stuff. This was my first so it may have been posted. 

Well I guess I have things to get done, including house cleaning and dinner. Have a great weekend, Love your family and friends. And wear what makes you happy!!!
Hugs~
Helen

PS- Cudahy went to Sate for Girls Basketball- first time ever!!! So exciting!!!
Made this "hat" using Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me's hat idea. Made the band and the net in our school colors.



We didn't win state, however coming in 2nd is pretty good.

Been so so busy

I have been so busy taking care of my son, my granddaughter, the rest of the family. I still am crocheting and some crafting when I have time. I do miss blogging. But I think most of all I miss all the groups that used to be, where we would chat, laugh, and have fun. I made some really good friends that way. Now I crochet a lot because when you sit and don't have a lot of space that's pretty much all you can do. I make hats for the kids at the hospital. I've been making hats for orders. You can always come see my stuff on Facebook at HTTP://Facebook.com/tomorrow's treasure
A lot of my cards are there and any new ones I've made. Tons of my crochet hats are there, some are my idea some are others.
Either way I hope you enjoy.
