Make your own dryer balls

I may be an old hippie but I don't go too crazy about everything being "natural" or chemical free. One thing I have steered clear of is fabric softener and dryer sheets. I have asthma and they just have too much scent!

Here are some very easy directions to make your own dryer balls. I like the idea of using old wool sweaters to make them. 

Have a look here and get a few going as an after school project with your kids or during a movie in the evening!

Great vintage bulky sweaters and jackets

There are some great patterns on this site. I especially like this little jacket. You can download this free pattern or purchase the entire booklet. Great stuff!

Here is another pretty one...check out that lipstick!

Easy car knitting...

I like to have easy projects that can be done while riding in the car....something not too hard but to keep me occupied.

Here is a lovely little bear pattern that can be knit with some of that fuzzy novelty yarn we all have laying around. Isn't he so cute?

There are some nice tea cosies and candy recipes as well.

Enjoy, Debby
