At top is my most recent Crocheted Scalloped Hot Mat. The ombre is called Buttercream and I think it is so pretty. The light blue edge is called Aquamarine.
Last month I shared pictures of the wrap skirts I made for my granddaughter Julia's American Girl dolls, using a pattern from You Can Make This. Julia actually took photos of the dolls modeling the reversible skirt with the two different shirts, so I'm sharing those here.
I've also crocheted a couple of necklaces from this pattern: Trellis Necklace Tutorial. I hope to make at least one more. They are so easy and quick to make, once you have cut the yarn to length.
And I've made quite a few mailing envelopes from calendar pages. You can find a tutorial for those here: handmade bubble mailers. The ones I have been making are not for fragile items, so I've been eliminating the bubble wrap from those. Skipping the step of adding in the bubble wrap makes the process go much faster. I am just showing a couple of the mailers I've made.
The calendar covers are sturdy enough to make mailers without reinforcement, but for the inside calendar pages I cover them with clear contact paper to make them stronger and more weather proof.

|I folded this one a bit differently to show the striped edge. Isn't it pretty? This was made from the dish toweling fabric that one cuts to the desired length and then hems.|
