My version of You Go Girl blog pillowcases

OK, I have a little to learn about posting. I posted picture from my photo page apparently I need to post first.
Anyway, someone on the blog (yougogirl) had suggestion a rotary cutter that perforates the fabric. Checked with a couple of local stores, no one had the rotate blade. I honestly, tried the 15 yards of yarn, but grew very frustrated. I knit a lot and still have trouble with yarn turning into a mess. I know to use Ziploc bags, use a ball winder, wrap around a card. Still I get to excited and it gets all twisted up. So, trying to handle 15 yards was not working for me. Therefore, I used about 4-5 yards, threaded a big needle (not sure what kind) and did a blanket stitch. Then, went back up thru the same hole, did a single crochet, then off I went. I made sure I started where the flap begins so I can secure all ends under the flap with a good knot and a dab of glue.
Again I love the project and a new fascination with crocheting.

Review: Childhood Parenting Examiner

If you have daughters, you'll most likely want to buy at least one gift this holiday season that will suit their girly tendencies. Even if your girls love cars and trains and climbing and dirt, they probably will also love some of these gifts too.
Dolly's Cupcakes Tea & Me is perfect for girly girls of all ages (though recommended for kids three and up). The soft tea pot, cups, saucers and foods are handmade in the USA. These are very nice quality toys and much better than the plastic and metal sets on the market
