Spring Burst Scarf
There was a little bit of this beautiful yarn left over. I don't know what the color is called, but I'm pretty sure it was from a skein of Red Heart Supersaver yarn. There was just enough to make a child size scarf (48 inches) and a matching flower pin.
For the stitches, I used a pretty pattern from the CrochetDreamz blog (just scroll down, and there should be a link to the pattern). I'm not very good at following written patterns; and admittedly, the finished product looks different from hers. It's still pretty though. The pattern called for starting with 180 stitches (or 60 inches). This would make the length of the scarf first. However, I did it the short way and just made more rows. Maybe that's why it looks different. To use the stitch in different sizes (e.g. for the short way across the scarf or for a baby blanket, or longer for an afghan), just start with a multiple of 9. I think I started with 27.
Here are a couple pictures. The second picture below shows the colors more accurately.
Sashay Yarn Embellished Shirt
Red Heart Sashay is that really pretty lacy yarn often used to make ruffled scarves. Christy and I had each made a scarf some time ago, and Christy had some of her pretty pink yarn left over. What could it be used for? Why, to dress up a plain pink shirt!
Applying the yarn to the collar and sleeves was not too difficult. I just sewed it on. The collar was a little tricky at the corner, and I'm not quite satisfied with it. Will have to do a little experimenting with going around the corners. :-) However, the yarn makes a nice little addition and gives a feminine touch to a plain shirt.
