Fancier Summer Hats

These two hats are my basic bucket hat with a white band containing coordinating beads.

And this hat has a simple chain at the top with beads that match the hat. The colors remind me of sherbet.
This is the Textured Child's Spiral Hat with an added brim. It's very eye-catching with colorful yarn and the contrasting spiral.

Two New Cozies

My newest product at the Farmer's Market was a real hit. This is a Chapstick/Lip Balm Holder. It has a keychain ring attached and holds a lip balm. I took 4 of them today and sold 5.

Last week a lady asked me to make cozies for the handles on her refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. Her appliances are stainless steel and she was tired of cleaning up the handprints left by her husband and son.

Here is one of them. It is long enough for a man's hand.

And here it is on my refrigerator door. It's not something I would have thought of but I think it will do the job.

Masa Bag

While looking for simple purses to make for the Farmer's Market, I came across this bag. It's called the Masa Bag. The pattern is written for a full-size bag for an adult. My version, for a child or teen, is smaller and takes about 1 skein of Sugar 'n Cream.

The bag is a simple crocheted rectangle and the fun comes when you fold it into the bag. This second bag was made of 4 colors to give an idea of how it's folded.
