WIP Wednesday - 10 Days of September Left!

Hey, September is almost over...which means October is right around the corner and that means Halloween costumes, craft fairs and Christmas presents....crap.  Is anyone actually ready for all that? If so, can I borrow your free time?  :D
I think I need to add a border on the edges, but other than that and maybe a flower at the neckline, done!

I've been slowly and steadily working on stuff for craft shows.  I've done 9 hoods for towels (goal of 30 is probably not going to happen unless I really bust them out this weekend...) and done several crochet hats.  I really love this hat, it's a fitted beanie but done with 2 strands of yarn so it should be pretty warm.  Mixing the black with the crazy color yarns helps make it not quite so crazy... and it works up fast so I should be able to get several different colors done!
Adult sized, next up a kid sized using the same yarn - probably already claimed by my kid...
I saw that people were turning their pooled crochet projects into adorable pumpkins, but I'm thinking that my finished piece was slightly too long for's going to be more a squash than an adorable pumpkin.  Or maybe I'll just pull it apart and make something else with it.
there's no way that will completely close's more of a line than a circle.
I did manage to finish a quick wallet on Saturday - Brownie Wallet from XOXO by Lauren with an added dollar slot.  Now that I have an idea how I want to do it and what I need to fix, I should whip up several more for craft shows...
Technically sideways, but this strip fit on perfect!

Current Projects:

  • Teacher purse - Hosta Hobo - Started sewing, planning on finishing by Friday!
  • Swoon Sydney messenger bags for birthday presents (from April and May...)
  •  Request for a 'small purse' for my youngest who has outgrown her Frozen Serendipity Hip...time to find it a new home!
  • Finish clematis that were cut at the same time as the swap one (3)
  • Storm Trooper shirt for me (super cute pattern, hopefully doesn't emphasize my 'mom bod')

Current Crochet Projects:

  • WeeBee baby doll  - Just needs some face details, and maybe a swimsuit to wear when she's not in her tail...bikini sort of works...made up my own pattern and it's interesting...
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • C2C (corner to corner) baby doll blanket crochet with some random scarfie yarn - Need to figure out what hook I was using...
  • Mermaid tail towel, 2 skeins of yarn into this, I must be doing something wrong because it's not THAT big yet and I only have 2 or 3 more skeins to go.
  • Started working on cowls for the fall because they are mindless and fast...but I really should totally finish them, not leave them with tails and button-less...
  • Started a princess dress style blanket - Need to just add a border on the sides and it's done!  Even have pieces already attached :O

Next Projects: (orders and using up fabric)

  • Handkerchief Purse
  • Bag of the Month - Done 2 so far, the Minifacto and the Starlet Clutch, I think I need to do at least 2 more before the end of the year
  • custom knit leggings - Harry Potter marauder's map, maybe some 'exercise' ones?  
  • Tote bags using my coffee panels - India Swoon Pattern?
  • Baby quilt - Jungle Path pattern
  • Ruched Shirt
  • Baby mermaid gown - Found the fabric!  Maybe I'll just make one for fun since the Niece is already past the newborn size...
  • snuggle/lap quilts using reading quotes and flannel backs
