No-Knit Scarf

Tessah and I are working on Christmas presents for some of our loved ones this year, its a tradition for us to give handmade gifts. She is a great little "crochet-er" so we crocheted long (140 inches) strings of funky yarn and then tie together in these cool scarves. This is our first one - We were both pretty happy with the finished product. And I am teaching her to be ever the bargain shopper - the yarn was on sale at JoAnn's for $1 per skein - regularly $5.99. I bought 5 skeins - but it only took 4 skeins to make it - not too shabby $4.00 for a scarf. And its made with LOVE - plus we had fun :) She also thought it was pretty cool that she had to teach me to crochet AND she was WAY faster than me! Hopefully the loved one for which this gift is intended will forget to check my blog until after the holidays :) XOXOX

For my Little Princess

I promised my niece, Indiya, a trick-or-treat bag - and she came with me to pick out the fabrics - so its Halloween on one side and her favorite thing on the other...princesses for a princess. And she SO is! (See picture below for proof!!!!)
