All Grown Up Striped Slouch Hat

All Grown Up Striped Slouch Hat
Moogly reader Brea recently came up with the brilliant idea of making a slouchy hat to match the All Grown Up Arm Warmers – and she was kind enough to let me run with it! And with or without the Arm Warmers, I think the All Grown Up Striped Slouch Hat is a keeper! Of course, the All Grown Up Arm Warmers are sized for adults – if you’re making the smaller size of this slouch hat for a tween, you’ll want to use the Sweet Striped Crochet Arm Warmers to complete the set!

Alma Stoller: how to make fabric beads with cotton balls tutorial and product review A few months ago, I was asked by to review some of there products. So, I decided to create a tutorial along with this product review to showcase my use of the beads I got from them. sent me the most AMAZING gold and metallic white gold beads so I decided to make fabric beads with it. Start with a strip of fabric and a cotton ball Use a cotton thread to stitch the fabric down Use a beading thread, (Nymo size D) to stitch beads on it. I've never worked with gold beads before, but I completely loved working with these. They really sparkle and stand out against the fabric and they were incredibly easy and smooth to stitch through. Each bead is uniform in size, no snagging or sharp edges. Once the beads are stitched to the fabric, you can string it up to make a necklace, or ornament anything of your choice. Disclosure....

Cheesy Chicken and Bean Enchiladas - Thinkarete I am a BIG fan of enchiladas. Especially cheesy chicken enchiladas topped with my homemade enchilada sauce. I even snuck some refried beans into the mix for a little addition to the vegetable garden. No one will argue that these are super authentic. These would work really well as a freezer meal. Start these out by seasoning a few BIG chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and onion powder. After the chicken has browned, I added about 1/2 cup of water into the bottom of the pan and covered the pan to finish the cooking. When the chicken is cooked through, shred it thoroughly. Now make your refried beans. Roll them up well and place into a pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray, and has been covered with enchilada sauce. Cover these with your enchilada sauce. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the whole thing is heated through.

Annemarie's Haakblog Easy Enchilada Sauce - Thinkarete This is my go-to enchilada sauce for all my various enchilada dishes. I love red enchilada sauce, but I cannot stand the stuff you find in the tin cans in the ethnic section of your local grocery store. This sauce is delicious, easy, and doesn’t require any crazy specialty ingredients. You can adjust the heat to your family’s preference. Saute the garlic in the vegetable oil for 1 minute over medium high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer stirring frequently for 15-20 minutes. Easy Enchilada Sauce • 1 TBSP Vegetable Oil • 2 cloves garlic, crushed • ½ tsp oregano • ½ tsp basil • 1 TBSP chile powder • ⅛ tsp black pepper • ¼ tsp salt • ¼ tsp cumin • ¼ cup salsa • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes 1.

Crocheted Doily Rug Two more things to cross off my crafty to-do list: 1. make a giant rug sized crochet doily 2. try crocheting with zpagetti, the recycled fabric remnant yarn made in, you guessed, it The Netherlands! You can crochet a giant doily and use it as a rug, or even as well, a giant doily! This one would look great on a round table, or just about anywhere really. I wish I could tell you that this is just the greatest project and the greatest yarn, oh well— I love the rug, but I wouldn't recommend using a single strand of zpagetti for a rug with an open pattern like this one. Now I'm really tempted to try making this doily rug with rags, namely sheets, or maybe with some thick rug wool I've got up in the attic somewhere.......As for the pattern, I sort or made it up by piecing together elements from other patterns, so while it's not a perfect pattern, I'll be happy to share it with you when I have a moment to type it up.
