Pizza Bunting Complete!

Pizza Bunting

I finished off my pizza bunting. It makes me oddly happy looking at it! I made six “slices” but I think if it’s going to just hang by the two loops, fewer slices might be better. I connected it by working SC across the top of each slice with three chains between. The hanging ends are CH15 with 10 of those used to form the loop. I worked across twice, making the hanging chains a little more sturdy.

It really didn’t take that long to make. If I worked on it steadily, I could probably make one in a few days. The most tedious part is sewing on the “pepperoni”.

Not that I’ve refined my slice making technique, I might make another one and put it in my Etsy store for giggles. 😀

Pizza Party

pizza slice 1

I admit it. I like pizza. I like it almost as much as I like chocolate. So why shouldn’t I have a pizza bunting? This is the first slice in my “wing it as I go” pizza bunting.

Tech Cozy

DVD drive sleeve

I have a little portable DVD drive and decided to make a little sleeve for it to keep the dust off. I also made it red so I could see it wherever I happened to lay it down. 😀 It’s just two 7.5 inch squares and two small squares for the flap. I whip stitched it together going through all four loops with right sides facing out. It holds the drive and its little cords.

Experimental Watch Band

Watch Band

I got a couple of watch faces that have two big rings on the side to slip a band through. I thought it would be cool to crochet a watch band. This one is just quick and sloppy. I crocheted a strip of SC that was four stitches wide. Then I slip stitched the strip together to make a tube. I threaded the tube through the rings and sewed the ends together. It has just enough give to slip over my hand. Of course the down side is that when it gets dirty I’d have to cut it off and make another one. I think I’ll try another experiment and crochet strips right onto the rings and try to make a closure. My issue with wearing watches is always the closure. It digs into my wrist when I type. It only took about 10 minutes to make the continuous band, though. I could make several and just have them ready to put in and sew up! 😀

Clusteray

Clusteray

Today’s Square: Clusteray
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: ME
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic spring green, lavender, brick, light blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: The final version of my square I was designing. I like it pretty well. This one is made with yarn that kind of feels like Caron Simply Soft. The yarn was a bear to work with but I like how the square turned out.
