Scavenger Hunt

Today's Scavenger Hunt Item

The item for Today is below.
Item: You are hunting for "a Canada Goose".
Clue: You will find it in the Wearables patterns.
Make sure to claim your 1000 points when  you find today's item!

Starting February 1st, I will be including any page on this site as a page to search for the Scavenger Hunt items. Not just the crochet patterns. When that starts, you will be searching for the Scavenger Hunt item just for the 1000 points secret code that you can use to get 1000 points with for finding that day's item. That will be the only reward. The clue will be related to the page that you will find it on.

I am now using images that are in either of the 2 Paper Bead Generators, or a thumbnail image of a pattern relevant to the current time period, for the daily Scavenger Hunt Items.

The daily scavenger hunt item can only be found for one day.

Laminated Cutting Guides! Learn about the brand new paper bead templates! These templates are designed for use with Guillotine cutters! They are laminated so they will last a very long time and you tape them down to the bed of the cutter and you lay your paper on top of them and move the paper down the template as you cut each strip.

Tuesday's Tip

Fix Kid's Clothes If your kid's clothes have holes, one way to be able to wear them still is to applique cute cutout shape onto the hole and put a liner on the back side of the fabric. You can get the shapes by using cookie cutters as a template. Then just use the satin stitch on your sewing machine to applique the patch on. If the hole is in a place where the machine cannot reach, you can use a fusible web product to fuse the patch onto the fabric then use a hand satin stitch to cover the edges. Or you can use a fabric paint to cover the edges.
