Sunday Inspirations

~Paper Towel Free - - I think this is a nifty idea. I would love to do this and have tried before, but the husband is an avid paper towel/napkin user. Maybe I'll try again in the near future.

~Baby Gators - - this is a free pattern from Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land from her new book Knitting Mochimochi: 20 Super-Cute Strange Designs for Knitted Amigurumi. I think the baby gators are super cute!

~Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Pot Roast - - this sounds interesting and good. My mom use to make coca-cola chicken and that was good. Rootbeer and roast sounds like they could work together.

~Owl Friendship Bracelet - - This is cute and nifty. I like their diagram of how to do it. Seems simple enough, maybe I'll try it.

~Reverse Applique Pillow Tutorial and some more design ideas. Love this whole thing, as I mentioned before. Will make one of these hopefully in the not too distant future.

~Easy Tank Tutorial was a link mentioned in a post from Malka of A Stitch In Dye. I like the look, it's nice and easy. I have some thin knit material I might use to make me a couple of these.


  1. Those baby gators are so cute! I'm not usually such a big fan of knick-knack type things, but they're very funny.

    We're almost paper towel free, and almost without just kind of happened. And don't even ask me where we put the napkins...I haven't seen them in forever! I do use paper towels to keep garden greens fresh, but I suppose I could use cloth for that...

  2. It still tickles me to see "husband". Hooray! The owl bracelet is cute, but what craft is it?! I suppose I could use the diagram for needlepoint?

  3. I don't think I could ever go paper towel free because I am such a germ freak. There are too many spills and yucks that need to be cleaned up that I don't want on my towels that I reuse. Like meat juices, I just don't want those in my washer or on my towels. But that is just me... I am odd.

  4. We have used cloth napkins for a long time, we used to use paper towels for everything! It made a hugh difference! They are nice to use and cheap, and of course green is good,
    Love the little gators!!
    Thanks for the tank tutorial link, so hot here, it looks like just the thing I need!
