some finished projects

I have finished a few projects this past week and I wanted to show you what I had been up to!

First off I made this cover for some jars that I had been saving. I used this pattern by Nature Nut Notes. It is a really simple pattern and I finished it in no time. Since then I have covered a plain votive candle  and a baby jar with the same pattern! It looks so lovely when the candle is lit!

Then I made this warm beverage sweater using this pattern by Color My World Crochet. This pattern is crazy simple and I love how the combination of SC & HDC stitches shape it to fit the cup nicely. I found these wooden buttons on sale at Walmart awhile back.

I saw this adorable flying disc toy by  LittleWoollyThings on Etsy. I thought I could easily make one for Blake to play with when he gets a little older. I added bells on some of the beads for a little extra fun! He already enjoys playing with it because of the bells!

I bought some pencil roving from a local seller awhile back and spun it up but because it was just a small amount of yarn I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I thought it would make an adorable star ornament. I used this pattern by A Foothill Home Companion to make it. This pattern is so cute. It's simple and can be worked up so fast. I crocheted two of them and sewed them together to make it thicker and it keeps the edges from curling up.

This last one has been done for awhile but I haven't gotten around to posting about it but remember the handspun yarn I bought from the yarn shop while in Iowa? I finally decided what to do with that. I needed a cover for the strap on my camera. All I did was do rows of HDC and when it was long enough I sewed the edges together to make a long tube and slipped over the strap! I love how it is functional by making it feel softer around my neck (and in the winter it will also keep my neck warm!) plus it looks really cute!
