Crocheted face scrubbies!

I am obsessed with face scrubbies now!  I absolutely hate it when you go to wash your face and the washcloth smells like mildew because it didn't dry out... after only one use. 
 
 
These little crocheted face scrubbies are the best thing ever.  They are about 3 inches in diameter, made from 100% cotton yarn.  They are super quick and easy to crochet, & take up less space than washcloths.  Plus, when you wash these, no folding is required :)
 
Also, they only take about 5 minutes to make one, so it's a perfect little study break craft for me!

my poor pillows

So this is part of the "repair" sewing I did over winter break.  These pillows (& unfortunately our couch) have been eaten by my dogs, and repaired too many times to count anymore.
 
 
The pillows are starting to become weird shapes.  The one on the right was after "fixing" it, and the pillow on the left is a tame version of what they both looked like after my dogs ate them (this time).  Want to know one thing that made stitching these pillows & the couch cushions back together easier?  Quilting clips! (wonder clips?)  They made my life so much easier, since it was too difficult to use regular pins to hold the fabric together.  Here's to hoping I won't need to do these "repairs" when I'm home for the summer.  I won't hold my breath. (we've had a lot of schedule changes and loss of routine that the pups are less than thrilled about)

Men's crocheted slippers

Here are the finished crocheted slippers I made for hubby!  I sure hope they fit :)  Now we have "his & hers"  slippers haha.

It has been a rough last couple of weeks.  This past week we had exams in nearly every class... and of course, my body decided to get ridiculously sick the weekend before.  Needless to say, I got very behind & wasn't able to study like I wanted to (& without being able to study... that means I didn't get crafting study breaks!)
 
I am hoping to get caught up soon & will hopefully get my crafty time back :)  But in the mean time... I have lots of notes to go over (and ink stains to remove from laundry... fell asleep on colored pens & highlighters lol, yup).

Sea glass!

Took a little stroll at the beach and found these.  I'm so excited to make sea glass jewelry out of them this summer.  A couple of the pieces are quite large, which I was thinking might look cool in a jar or around a candle or something, we'll see.  I'd love to hear your ideas :)
