I want a Kindle Paperwhite!!!  Money Saving Mom is giving one away!

She just published a wonderful book about keeping the holidays simple this year which of course also keeps down the costs.  You are a winner, if you buy the book, even if you do not win the paperwhite.


Flouncy T-shirt scarf

I found some tutorials online for the flouncy T-shirt scarf and I HAD to try it. Here is a link to my favorite tutorials and a picture of Daughter #1 wearing the one I made.   What I love about it is if I have a Tshirt that ends up with a stain on it in an obvious place that makes it unwearable, I can STILL use it for this craft.  Since you are cutting out circles, you just work around it.  It does not get any simpler.  Please check out the following.

The first tutorial I found.

GREAT how-to pics

The scarf is just the right size for me (plus size model) but not so great on a littler person.  If this was for her I would adjust to make the scarf shorter.  Cut wider spirals if you want it shorter and narrower spirals if you want it longer.

One thing I did that was a little different, was to wrap the middle/knotted area with embroidery floss. It makes a nice little colorful area that I can use as a feature of the scarf or It hides in the back. Either way, it is nicer than lumpy knots!

Enjoy making these, it is SOOO simple.
