Holiday Fabric Haul!

Time to start thinking about Holiday Crafting and one project that has come to mind is the good ol’ favorite: Magic Pillowcases! (AKA “Burrito-style” pillowcases and here’s my favorite tutorial thanks to Shabby Fabrics.) I’m working on a Year of Holidays Gift Collection for my daughter but these would be excellent charity donations and craft fair items as well!

Want to see what I’ve bought so far? Here you go:

  1. I have a question that maybe you can answer. I have been seeing faux fur pom poms on hats. I looked up the diy versions on you tube and found 3 different versions of making them. Have you made them and do you have an opinion? Millie

    • I’ve seen those, too, and have purchased pre-made ones and used them a lot last year! I have more I need to put into use this year, too. I don’t know a thing about making them myself but if it looks interesting to you, try it out and let me know how it goes!

      • I will. They look very easy and could save if you needed very many. BTW I’ve made 5 camel stitch slouch hats from your pattern and I love them. Also several pot holders. Thanks for the tutorials.❤

  2. i just found out about round knittiing machines from your videos. We have a group of senior ladies who crochet, loom knit, make stuff out of plastic canvas and make jewelry. I am also from the atlanta area. Those in our group that make hats, scarves, etc. from looming use the round and straight looms that are manual. They prefer to use the size 6 yarn. First, from watching the round knitting machines, I see that the #6 yarn is not going to work. They like the #6 because the hats are so soft and warm when finished.

    I also donate all the stuff I make. I used to donate them to the Forest Park Senior Center where my stuff was sold and the center kept the money. I now need a new place to donate my work as the senior center no longer wants to sell anything to make money.

    I myself, prefer to crochet. I like the different stitches that I put into the hats and scarves. Oh, and I donate all baby hats to Southern Regional Hospital through a fellow line dancer. I will share your video with the ladies who do loom knitting. Thank you for the information on the round knitting machines. I have an old knitting machine that I have never learned to use!
