Crocheted Bath Scrubbie

I've been wanting to crochet a bath scrubbie.
This one is nice and full.
I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn in seaspray color.
It didn't take too long to make, but it was a little hard on the hands.
I need to try it out to see how well it scrubs and launders.
I'll let you know the results.

Pucker Up

My set of Lips Zipper Cases includes 4 sizes of cases.
These machine embroidery designs stitch up quick!
The cases are made completely in your hoop.
They're fully lined with no raw edges inside.
The small size is perfect for change or chapstick.
The other cases in the set can hold a variety of items.
Stitch them up in sequin fabrics - yummy.
My Lips Zipper Cases machine embroidery design files can be purchased on my web site HERE

Chicken Pincushion

After a busy 2013, I've been cleaning my sewing room.
Going through cabinets, drawers, etc and purging.
I can actually see the floor now :)
I came across these blocks I made several years ago in a drawer. I used to save just about every scrap I had thinking . . . I can use that for something. I did use the scraps to make these blocks then got bored and stashed them away.
When I found them a few days ago, I immediately thought of the old chicken pincushions.
I have a couple that I use almost daily. They were made long ago and have seen better days.
I threaded up my sewing machine and whipped this one out in no time.
Cluck, cluck
. . . wonder what other treasures I will find as I continue cleaning
