I-Spy Bag and Other News

I love having at least one finish to share each week. That's a bit of pressure I'm putting on myself but it sure is fun to see what I can do! I am also having a sale this week at my Etsy shop where I sell custom crochet hats and quilts!!! To celebrate my birthday that was on the 13th I'm offering 13% off with the coupon code 111313.

Here's a sample of what I make in my shop. The sizes of each hat range from Preemie or Newborn all the way up to adult!
Now on to my finish...
I made this fun I-Spy bag for the baby for Christmas.  I have seen these around for years and have wanted one for a while and finally made it happen. The Nancy Drew fabric magnifying glasses totally sealed the deal for me on how cute it is. I filled it with plastic pellets and various buttons found at my local craft stores. There are also alphabet letter beads, enough to spell each of my kids' names, thrown in the mix. I had them each take a peek and they love it!

My hubby excels in spoiling me. He always says he is a crafty stuff collector and I am the crafter. It works out nicely! This is what I ended up with after my birthday shopping spree. So many fun things!! The fabric in the back corner is the background and binding for my wedding ring project. There are a bunch of fat quarters and a bit of yardage for my I-spy quilt I have begun collecting for. I got a crochet book I've been wanting for years and the rest of the bamboo hooks to complete my set. I also tried knitting this week and I think I might give that a serious go. I got super chunky yarn and large needles to try to make a cowl. The last thing is a set of stuff and instructions on how to Knook (knitting with a crochet hook). It could be easier and it doesn't hurt to try right?
 Well, that's it. It's been a great week. I hope to have something larger to show next week. Like a quilt. Remember to hop on over to my shop for the sale. I'll be linking up with Finish it up Friday and Thank Goodness it's Finished Friday!


  1. Love your i-spy bag idea.
    Good on your hubby. Mine only complains about how much fabric I'm buying, so now I remind him of how much I had to leave behind in the shop. LOL

  2. Ooh, what a cool bag! I've never seen anything like that! How fun! My oldest son would love to find the letters of his name. :)


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
