The idea being to motivate each other to use up scraps, of anything & everything. Unfortunately, while I have been making more scraps, through patchwork, knitting and crochet, I didn’t actually get around to making anything with them this month.
However . . . I found a lovely crochet pattern on Zhaya Designs – ever so simple – and for next time, I hope to be able to show you
something along these lines. Zhaya calls these “smooching balls”. They can be made any shape, any colours, and are a perfect way to use up those remnants from other knitting projects where there’s still a fair bit left, but not enough to attempt even a doll-sized garment, for fear of running out. I’m thinking these would be fun stuffed with a small sachet of rice/cherry stones or something similarly weighty, to become fun beanbags for kids.
