100% Cotton Washcloths

Lately I have been crocheting a lot of these 8"x8" 100% cotton washcloths. They can also be used as dishcloths. They are fun and quick to make and I like the pleasure I get when I finish one. Keeps me busy on long car rides. We have been doing a lot of traveling lately. I have posted some of the washcloths for sale on my etsy page at http://www.etsy.com/shop/alanemarie.

Tote Bags!

I recently started having fun creating Tote Bags. Shown are a green tote that I loved and my newest creation...  a Blue Checkered Tote. I spent time with my daughter showing her how to make a Tote. She made a denim tote with a cute red lining and I made the Blue Checkered Tote. We had a day of fun shopping for material and sewing together.

Green Plaid Baby Blanket



Last night was the first time I crocheted a decorative edge around a blanket using my new Skip Stitch Blade to cut the holes first. It made things so much easier! I was so happy I found the Skip Stitch! Its a great product. You can purchase this blanket at my new Artfire shop!

How to Make a Credit Card Holder

Watch this movie for instructions on how to make my Credit Card Wallet. Or - if you don't want to make one visit my Etsy page at alanemarie.etsy.com.


Credit Card Wallet


I wanted a new wallet but the kind I wanted did not have enough slots for my membership cards and credit cards so I decided to make my own! I still carry the wallet I bought but the credit card wallet is just that - a wallet for cards. I found a site called craftbits that had some instructions for making a smaller wallet to hold money and a few cards so I modified it to make what I had in mind. Here are some pictures of the results. If you want one too let me know. $5.00 each.



Crocheted Clutch

Brad and I took a ride to Cedar City and on the way I crocheted this little clutch. I got the pattern from Lion Brand Yarn's site. If you register you can get all kinds of patterns. I think it turned out pretty well. Its my first purse.It is 9 1/2" wide and 6 1/2" tall and opens up pretty wide.

Digital Scrapbooking

I have dabbled a little with digital scrapbooking. I like the concept of being able to make wonderful, graphic scrapbooking pages without having to buy all the "stuff"! The other day I found a great site called The Shabby Shoppe. "It is a DIGITAL scrapbooking site featuring high quality, downloadable products for both digi and paper scrappers." I took that straight from the site. There are video tutorials and free downloads to help you follow and do what they show you in the videos. It is fun and addicting. I really want to learn more. Following the tutorial I made the "page" below. Check it out when you have time and let me know what you think. Leave your comments below!



Bakerella




















I found this great blog the other day. I am not sure how I got there. It was a link from one blog to another and then to another. It is Bakerella. She enjoys baking and creating sweets and shares what she does on her site. She makes the cutest "cake pops" (like lolipops but with cake inside) and tells you how to make them. This picture is just one example of some that she has made. She also makes cupcake pops and has done cute things for Easter. You can read how to make them by clicking here. I am planning on making some - maybe for a girls' camp fundraiser coming up. If I do I will take pictures and post them! I hope you check it out.

Twin Sweaters



I made these sweaters for a woman at work who is having twin baby girls this summer. I made them in the six month size so that they could wear them when it gets cold here. I am sure when they are born nobody will be thinking of putting them in sweaters! The Mother-to-Be loved them and said she would keep them forever. I made her promise to take pictures of them wearing them. If she does, I will post them to show how they fit. One of these days really soon I will get a better set up for taking pictures. Of course, you can order one to be special made for your little cutie in any color up to size 24 months. Only $30.00. Email me or order it from my Etsy page - alanemarie.etsy.com.
