kitchen craftin'

Here are the items I crafted for Craftster's Spice Up Your Kitchen Swap.

Knitted ballband dishcloth. This was the first one of these I had made, and I really enjoyed myself. The pattern really simple and quick, but interesting enough so I didn't get bored even once while making it.

Crocheted potholder. Just a single crocheted square backed with some scrap fabric. I also sandwiched some thick felt-like leftover fabric between the layers for insulation. I would have used quilt batting, but I couldn't find it at the time. It was in the kitchen closet behind my summer tires, found it when I got my snow tires taken off last week. I'm so organized.

Polymer clay fruit magnets.

Fruity fabric apron. I'm not much of a sewer, but I loved this fabric, so I gave apron making a shot. The pattern is Butterick B4945.

Here's my favorite thing I made, a knitted tea cozy. This is the thing I made that I pretty much designed by myself, as alluded to here. In this picture, it's on my teapot, but the pot it was designed for is a similar shape, only with the handle ends attaching closer to the lid, so it's a little stretched out over the handle on my pot. The button is polymer clay.

No more swaps for a while, I've decided to work on my current WIP's (my friend is still waiting for her Tank Girl, plus I have a knitted sweater, a crocheted sweater, and a pair of socks all on hook/needles). And I promised my soon to be husband (oh, am I going to have to get used to saying that word) that companion cube a while ago. I ordered yarn for it, the package should be here tomorrow.
