I remember trying to make a scarf by hand crocheting, but when you do it by hand the weaves are so freaking huge that it's almost useless as a scarf, lol

Now, we’re going to weave in the tails and finish off the bag. You’ll want to turn your bag inside out. Then thread your yarn needle. Then just work the needle in and out of stitches. You’ll do it again at the top. I weave the yarn through one of the lattice columns, then I weave it through a few stitches to make it more secure.

I haven't mastered finger crochet yet. I would imagine if you do it that way, a super chunky yarn would be helpful

Yes! I have tons of scarves. I got excited I could do it and made a whole bunch to match everything. It is very easy I watched some how to and with every try it gets easier.

It's sooooo much easier than a hook crochet. I had a chain that wrapped around my whole house at least once, and the ball was a little bitter than a basketball, lol

Now, just weave in the ribbon through the top lattice columns to make a tie!

I like getting scrapbooking ribbon in the Dollar Spot section at Target. It's perfect for stuff like this.

To keep the edges from fraying, you can use Fray Check. But I just put a bit of tacky craft glue on my fingers and smudged it on the tips, then trimmed it when it was dry!

NOPE! I hate the show. *side eyes* I don't watch Private Practice either.



Oh, okay, fine. LOVE THE SHOW! Both of them made me cry this week and it pisses me off.

Thanks. I did a little sound test on these. I put a toy in its SSA Glass bag and tapped it against the table, very loud. In these bags, very muted. It's not as plush as a super padded bag like Eden sells, but it's MUCH better than what comes with some of these toys.

You should watch it again because she's back. And how she got back was AWE. SOME.

I'm almost entirely caught up on NCIS, then I have to decide whether to catch up on the last year or so of House, or of Grey's.

I stopped watching House because after rehab he just pissed me off. So I vote Grey's.

I've seen some of the newer episodes on TV and I'm all "... wow, way to jump the shark there putting House and Cuddy in a relationship..."

I knew they were going to do that though.

Bones is getting interesting. I like that they didn't rush Booth and Bones into a relationship. I love the sexual tension

Haha, that is adorable. I don't know why I've never thought of doing this before! I sew up my own bags for some of my toys (like, a 5-layer thick bag for traveling with my pure wand).
