Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

Pattern Review - Sassy Ruffle Bag designed by KT and the Squid

As soon as I saw the Sassy Ruffle Bag I knew I had to make it!!! LOVED it!!!! KT and the Squid has such cute designs and this purse was no exception! 

My niece had a birthday coming up and so I went shopping!!! (Not that I need an excuse to buy yarn, I picked some up last week cause it was Wednesday - but it's always more fun when there is a project and person in mind.) I used Caron Simply Soft Party in Silver Sparkle and Red Heart Boutique Sashay Sparkle in Mediterranean. I really wanted to use the Sassy Fabric but I couldn't find any in my area and I didn't have time to order it. I've worked with Sashay quite a bit and was worried about it stretching out too much when it was cleaned. I didn't want it to look too thin so I used two strands of it held together. Yes that was challenging but so worth it in the overall look of the finished purse!!!

Pattern rating: I give it 5 stars! Very easy to understand and follow. All stitch instructions are clear and if you read all of the pattern and notes you shouldn't have a problem making it. They are very clear. The structure of the bag is excellent. It is stitched in a way that allows it to be stronger and not stretch as much as a regular dc purse would. It holds all of my niece's dance stuff really well. She loves it and who can blame her? Look how adorable it is!!!! 

You can find a link to KT and the Squid's blog HERE and you can find a link the Sassy Ruffle Bag specifically HERE. I hope you all give it a try it is such a fun pattern and leave a comment on KT and the Squid's blog letting her know how much you love it too. (It's always so nice to hear good things about your patterns.)
Be happy everyone!!!

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!! Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

Infinity Hooded Scarf

Ok friends, I know that I have been promising this pattern for a while on FB. Hope it was worth the wait! {Fingers crossed} This is an infinity scarf which means it is made in one continuous circle. {No weird awkward ends to tuck in somewhere!} In this version I have attached a hood for extra warmth in the wind, rain, and snow that come with fall and winter. The nice thing about this particular pattern is that you have the option of making it with and without the hood. They are worked separately and then attached. The scarf looks beautiful both ways. Enough talking - lets get hooking!! Infinity Hooded Scarf This pattern has been sold to All Free Crochet and can be found HERE .

Owl Dish Scrubbie

Here is the window dressing promised in the Scrubbie Teaser Post from a couple weeks ago! How freaking adorable are these little owls???? I was so excited when my friend came to me with this idea! I approached Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and asked her what she thought about me linking to her post and I was soooo glad that she was ok with it! Look how cute these are!!!!!  Alright, so step one is going to be to complete the scrubbie from the previous post, found HERE . Once you have completed that you can follow along with the rest of the pattern here: Materials  Cotton yarn in as many colors as you like.

You are going to stuff the owl with it. Notes You can put a scrubbie in front, or in back or in both places. However you think it will work best! I have completed one owl with the
