Guinea Pig Fringed Hide Away Instructions

Guinea Pig Fringe Hide Away Instructions:
You'll need a 23” x 24” piece of fleece. Cut a 10”x10” piece out like you see in the diagram and then sew both sides together as the diagram also shows.

Draw a straight line from side to side that measures 10 1/2" up from the bottom with a washable fabric marker. Mark 1/2" increments on the fabric on both the top and bottom of fringe section.

Cut the fringe using a rotary cutter and ruler or trace a line using your fabric marker if you are cutting the fabric with scissors to ensure that each length of fridge is as close to the same size as possible. 

Cut a 10"x 14" piece of cardboard. Secure fringe hide away to the card board with ribbon or yarn using a sharp needle and piercing through both layers. You'll use this piece of string or yarn to tie your hide away to the cage so make the pieces plenty long. You'll need to make 1 hole in the 3 corners that are touching the sides of the cage in order to make sure the hide away won't fall. 

If you'd like you can decorate with ribbon. I used fabric glue instead of sewing to save myself a little time.

Studio EB Crafter

The owl keychain I recently won from Studio Eb Crafter. I turned it into a progress keeper for a bulky sweater vest I am currently knitting.
I recently won a wonderful prize from a long time friend. I was so impressed by her work that I just had to tell you about her.

Erin of Studio EB Crafter makes the prettiest necklaces, keychains and charms. I can tell she puts her heart into every thing she makes. She also strives for quality. Something so important in a "Made in China" society. Her prices are more than fair and she shipped my prize out promptly. I know that she would do the same for her customers. 

I highly suggest supporting Erin through a purchase from her Etsy Shop. Not only are you supporting a great business. You are supporting a great person.

It All Started With A Square.......

I am so excited to share my new pattern with you all. It truly did start with a square. I crocheted the first 2 squares (one in cream and one in green) and had planned on making a square blanket made of alternating green and cream squares. After the cream square was done I just wasn't in love so I decided to try something different. After thinking for a minute I figured out what I wanted to do and 20 minutes later "It All Started With A Square" was born. I am so happy with the results and I know I will be making many, many more of this design.

Note: The green and cream afghan will be given to a local woman that will then give it to a Veteran in this area.

Click for Babies KAL/CAL

Hello Everyone,
I am running a crochet along/knit along in the Dragonflysoars Group on Ravelry for "Click For Babies" ( Participants are just asked to crochet or knit a baby hat that is at least 50% purple. You can take a peak at the website above for more guidelines. You can send your hats to the address that can be found at the link below or donate them to your local "Click For Babies" chapter. Be sure and take pictures of every hat you finish and post it in THIS THREAD so you have a chance at winning an awesome prize. Each hat equals one entry. You don't have to be a member of the group to enter either. So grab your hook/needles and some soft purple yarn and make a few baby hats for "Click for Babies".

A huge thank you goes out to these awesome people for their prize donations!! I really appreciate the support they are showing for something I care about so much!!
