TGIFF: Small Finishes

Welcome to TGIFF!! I am so excited to be hosting TGIFF this week! It's a great linkup where fabulous people from all over the world come to show off their finishes. Speaking of finishes... I have three small ones this week to show you. I am so happy with how each of them has turned out.

First up... A triple zip pouch made from the fabulous tutorial found here. I have made several of these and just love them! They are so functional and cute to boot. This particular one is to hold my knook supplies. It's my latest hobby. You knit with a crochet hook. You can see my beginnings of a creation off to the left. The is my very first attempt and it looks so good! I assure you my regular knitting does not look this fabulous.

Here's another angle of the triple zip. I love to make the zippers match the accent piece and the lining that they open to.This is my first finish for the Q1 FAL (goal post here).

Here it is with my yarn tote that I made mid-December. It's fun to have a set like this.

Next up... I made a skirt for myself. I got these new boots for Christmas and while I adore them I didn't have a skirt I loved to match. So... enter my LQS. I bought some Wollies Flannel by Maywood. It looks and feels like Wool but isn't itchy and washes like cotton. BONUS! I got 1 5/8 yards and simply made a tube, hemmed, and added elastic to the top. Super easy and quick too!

My last project was the adorable crochet fire helmet for my little man. It was a test for my shop and is now available for custom orders. I adore making crochet hats and have many different styles available. Check it out if you have interest.
 Now it's your turn...

I'd love to see your finishes! Just link them up below then check out what everyone else has been up to. Be sure to leave comments - they brighten everyone's day! Also make sure you link back to this linkup somewhere in your post so everyone can get here as easily as we got to you.

  15. I love the skirt and the fireman hat. I think it is so funny that he goes to bed with it on. It goes great with his fireman quilt.
