For my sister-in-laws' birthday, one of her gifts is a small crocheted gift bag.
This is a really simple pattern, made of single crochets and slip stitches. Very quick make. Some projects can take up some time when they switch stitch types many times. This pattern does not switch stitches at all and took just a couple hours for a first time. Normally I would post a link to the website I found the pattern on, but I have misplaced that Favorite. If anyone knows, please point me in their direction and I will include a link so others can make their own. If requested, I can make a few to post on Etsy. I tend to finish requests quickly before I find motivation for items that may or may not sell. Pricing would depend on size.
A few weeks ago I received some silk thread from ArtNeedlepoint.com.
They graciously handed out these threads to many people like myself. They called it a giveaway, but just about everybody who posted received some skeins of thread. Unfortunately i have a collecting tendency, so I am not sure how long I will take to find a project to use these on. They are really really nice threads though and will be absolutely beautiful when used. Just a little thanks to ArtNeedlepoint.com for giving me some really nice silk thread.
