Teacher Gift Idea--Hand Soap Apple Cozy

Let me show you what I whipped up this morning...

Cozies for Apple Soap Dispensers -- Perfect 2-in-1 gift for teachers and neighbors

Inexpensive and cute I thought they would make nice gifts for teachers--I was thinking Christmas or Teacher Appreciation Week. So I snagged them.

Triangle of Triangles Scarf Crochet Pattern

You know those crochet projects. The ones that only use a skein or two of soft and affordable yarn. The ones that only take a few hours to make but you end up with something stylish and versatile to wear. The ones that are perfect for a quick yet fabulous gift. This is one of those projects.

Set Your Table--V-Stitch Place Setting Free Crochet Pattern

V-Stitch Placemat & Napkin Ring from Susan Carlson of Felted Button (FREE crochet pattern)

You are probably seeing lots of the V-Stitch around lately as it is such a simple, yet pretty, stitch. It's great as a stashbuster. And it doesn't require any thought so it's super rhythmic and relaxing to work, I think. So with the holidays approaching and decorating on the brain, I decided to make up an easy little Placemat and Napkin Ring pattern with color (surprised?), whimsy, and versatility.

This one was made with some bits of I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby I had in my stash. And the colors are all too Cath Kidston or Martha Stewart. They make me happy.
