Fabric Mini Bag

My mom gave me this piece of fabric a while ago. I don't know if she bought it or how she ended up with it but I as you can see it was pretty ugly. I decided to rip it into strips and crochet with it since I'd never tried that before and thought it might be fun.

Today I randomly crocheted it into this bag which is really cute. It's amazing how an ugly piece of fabric can look so much nicer when it's crocheted up. At first I started making it too wide so after a few rounds I ripped it out and made it narrower. I love how it turned out. I'll have to write out the instructions and post them somewhere.

Pink Baby Booties

I was trying to figure out what else I could crochet since I've been making nothing but dishcloths for the last couple of weeks and I decided to try making some baby booties. I looked through my saved patterns and found this. They were pretty easy. A good pattern to make for the first time and I think they are super cute. I'll def. be making more soon.
And I was so excited that they fit perfectly into my origami gift boxes. They will make the
perfect present. Tied up with a bow and ready for giving.

Pretty in Pink Plaid Burp Cloths

I found some pink flannel in the drawer so I decided to make a couple of burp cloths to have on hand. You can never have too many baby presents ready to go. I've given away so many lately that my stash is running low.
