Turns out we should be washing these things after each use or they can become a breeding ground for bacteria. I tried washing the ones I got at my market and they fell apart. Great. Then, another story pops up that shows many of these same bags are coming from overseas and contain potentially unsafe levels of lead. You want a substantial fabric for this project, a canvas, heavy cotton duck or an outdoor fabric. Our thanks to our friends at for originally providing the great outdoor fabrics. We also did a Nature Brights Kitchen series, which would be great to add into the mix.

Free Pattern Friday – Weighted Blanket. What is a weighted blanket?

Free Pattern Friday – Weighted Blanket

A weighted blanket is often used by children and adults with autism and other sensory-related disorders; including restless-leg syndrome. It helps a person to relax and to find comfort in a similar way deep pressure works. Serotonin is released through the pressure – which converts to melatonin which helps our bodies to relax. The general rule of thumb to determine an appropriate weight for a blanket is 10% of the intended persons body weight plus 1 pound. So a 70-pound child would need a blanket weighing 7+1, or 8 pounds. Weighted blankets are also reported to help the elderly, cancer patients, babies and toddlers, and those with insomnia. These blankets can cost a small fortune online but crafty parents and caregivers have come up with several tutorials on how to make your own!

Flannel and cotton seem to be the materials of choice but I have also seen blankets made using minky or chenille. ThreeHighChairs sur Etsy - Avis sur la boutique.

The Shades of Pink - Blog: Teddy Bear Cowl I

Feedback is appreciatedRecently a friend texted me and asked if I could make a Teddy Bear Cowl for her daughter, I quickly went to work searching out a pattern and found some really adorable ones, in fact there is a SUPER popular one floating around the internet that I thought I could probably make.This is my first incarnation.And the reason this is attempt #1 is because the cabling is running left to right rather than front to back, forming more of a dome or fitted hat rather than a loose cowl. It's still cute, but I am sure I'll be buying the pattern for the uber-popular one and making it.I just noticed that someone commented on Ravelry that this turned out adult sized. Either I crochet tight (I do) or I planned on it being more loose (I did). Anyway, adjust size as necessary to make this fit in a manner which you prefer. Custom Bean Bags.
