New Girls Poncho

My daughter requested a new poncho...

Girl's Poncho by Over The Apple Tree

I few year ago I made a granny square poncho for my daughter, She still wears it and it still fits, but she's older now. She has new style and color preferences. So off to the store we went to pick out a color. I'm thinking neutral, something that will match a variety of outfits. My eight year old and I were not on the same page. She chose red and there was no changing her mind.

I found a pattern I liked, I showed it to her, she liked the style. When it came down to it, we were debating between two different patterns. Of course, I lost again! So here's the two we liked. the first one (my choice) is the Rustically Elegant Shoulder Warmer and my daughter's pick was the Chelsea Wrap. Both of these patterns are easily altered to adjust size. So obviously I made the Chelsea Wrap, designed by Michele DuNaier because that's what girly wanted. It's a super simple design and works up quickly. Park your butt and turn on some Netflix! You'll be done before you know it!

Recycled Yarn

Give unwanted sweaters from the thrift store a new life! 

Recycle Yarn From Thrift Store Sweaters By Over The Apple Tree

It takes a little work, but thrifted sweaters are a great place to source yarn. You can find unique and what might normally be expensive fibers, for a crazy low price. Bonus, you save a sweater from living the rest of its life in a landfill! There are plenty of posts out there showing how to take apart your sweater, how to chose the best and how to wash your yarn. Please defer to the experts, I'm an amateur with this! Here's a good post from How To Spin Yarn. Need more help? YouTube tutorials are great for visual learners!

Cabled Crochet Cowl

This beautiful textured cowl is the perfect accessory for winter!

Cabled Crochet Cowl by Over The Apple Tree

I purchased this pattern back in December and I finally had time to work on it. This pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry from Jennifer Pionk, it's called Timeless Cabled Cowl. My first instinct is to choose grey for all my projects. I just love it and it matches everything! For this cowl I decided to step out of my comfort zone and go for a bold, deep red...

Coffee and Orange Spice Melt And Pour Soap

Odor neutralizing hand soap, perfect for the kitchen!

Coffee and Orange Melt and Pour Soap by Over The Apple Tree

I've been meaning to do this soap forever. The ingredients have been sitting here looking at me for months! So coffee is known to neutralize odors, which makes it perfect for use in the kitchen. It seems like even after you wash, that garlic or onion smell still lingers on your hands. I thought I'd give this a try as hand soap but you could definitely use it in the shower to wake you up in the morning. It would also be great as garden soap since the texture from the coffee works great to scrub your skin clean.
