Pinterest Round Up #6

It's Monday again, but that doesn't mean we can't start the week off right. Let's get pinning!

Favorite Pin #1
Leaping Strips and Blocks blanket
This free pattern is available on Moogly, which has tons of free and paid patterns for crochet, knitting, and quilting. I'm actually right in the middle of making this one. So far, I love the pattern. It's quick and easy and something I can do without constantly referring back to a pattern. What I'm not thrilled with is the cotton yarn. Normally I like cotton yarn, but it's not cheap and it's a little heavy for a baby blanket. I'm thinking of making it into a lovey - a hugable blanket with an amigurumi friend attached. More on that later. Perhaps next time I will make with a soft, acrylic yarn.

Favorite Pin #2
Sheep Cupcake
How cute are these little guys? They remind me of Wallace and Gromit. No instructions with this one, but it looks simple enough. Cupcake + mini marshmallows + fondant face = too cute to eat!

Favorite Pin #3
Garbage Disposal Refreshers
You probably already have all these ingredients at home. This is definitely going on my to do list. I've purchased pre-made deodorizers at the store before and used my own home remedy, but this looks like a cool and cheap way to be ready to fix that smell on the fly. This would be a great gift as well.

Favorite Pin #4
Peppermint Foot Scrub
Summer is the time to show more of your feet, so they need to be looking good. This recipe only calls for three ingredients and super easy to make. The peppermint will surely refresh those little tootsies and get you ready for your favorite sandals. 

Favorite Pin #5
Business Card Holder
There were 24 people who immediately re-pinned this after my initial pin, so I'm guessing that I'm not the only one who loves this. What a great way to use up scrap fabric and make an awesome gift for someone who deserves it. I'll let you in on a secret...I already made this just a few days ago, so you'll see more on this soon.

If you don't already, be sure to follow me on Pinterest and if find something great, let me know and I'll share it here!
