Pattern is Quick and Easy - just how I like it! about 2 hours to construct and here is where I got the pattern: http://theadventuresofcassie.blogspot.com/2008/03/free-reusable-crocheted-grocery-bag.html
In the comments below the pattern they have instructions for a larger bag. I totally see this going to the beach, it would allow the sand to fall out of all the toys and would dry so quickly in the acrylic yarn!
Then I made this CUTE little yarn ball with my leftover "vintage" yarn from the 1970's: http://laughingpurplegoldfish.blogspot.com/2008/08/winding-yarn.html

This is my cousin's school colors at Holland-Patent, NY. She's going to be so cute running cross country in her new hat! I made this one last night while watching the dumbest movie of one liners I've ever watched...The Other Guys...at least I got a hat finished so I didn't waste that hour and half of my life!

I used this pattern to make these baby baskets (I just added a handle). You can even throw them in the wash so baby can play with them too! I thought they would be a cute way to organize all the little stuff you need when you have a little one around. I have two baby showers this Sunday so I made one for each baby. I think they will LOVE them.

The girls decided to design little purses while I made their latest garments. They are fully lined with white inside and have a little pocket inside too. Their "pattern" was a piece of paper from the printer then they just folded it in half to make the purses...too cute!

This is for my elder daughter -- she is getting too big for dresses all the time -- this is a shirt from pattern McCalls 5798 (size 10) made a little longer than the pattern calls for and a ruffle added, too. I wonder why they can't just make patterns longer these days...nobody wears a shirt that cuts off at their waist anymore! She picked everything out herself.

My daughter feels so pretty in her new dress...made from old drapes in my mother's house! Pattern is Simplicity 3902 - pretty easy pattern and has almost no gathering...form fitting and very flattering on the body. I always add some length to this pattern as my girls don't like dresses shorter than their knees.
