Hi! I’m Erin
from
and I’m just about as pleased as punch to visit with you girls today!

That’s me with my husband and our two stinks– 3-1/2 and 7 months.


is all about
do-able crafts, great recipes,

ideas, and kid stuff, topped off with a healthy
dose of our

Ca-Razy home

renovation. We are gutting this joint, I tell you.

Here are a few of my recent projects.

The Layered Fleece Scarf

You can’t get much simpler– or cuter– than
this!

Materials for a
Preschool-Size Scarf:
7″ x 35″ piece of fleece (bottom layer)
5-1/2″ x 35″ piece of fleece (top layer)
35″ piece of 1-1/2″ ribbon
35″ piece of 3/4″ ribbon
5 buttons
thread for machine sewing
needle and thread for hand-sewing the buttons in place

fleece scarf for kids
1. Place the fleece pieces together, then lay the 1-1/2″ ribbon on top, down the
middle.
2. Pin in place.
TIP: Use a
lighter to seal the edges of your ribbons first so they will never fray.

3. Stitch very closely along both edges using your sewing machine.
4. Pin the smaller ribbon on top and stitch along both sides, very close to the
edges.

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I've made some similar to that without the ribbon. They are so warm and easy to make. with the ribbon they are so cute. Nice job.
