Hands Free Wine

A friend of mine posted this picture on fb about a week ago.


It made me laugh out loud when I saw it because honestly, that doesn’t look too safe. Thankfully this woman is drinking white wine, but what about those of us who enjoy a glass of red from time to time? Anyway, this old college friend of mine posted it and hinted that it would be a great birthday present.
Completely as a gag gift (because I still highly doubt that anyone would use it!), this is what I came up with 🙂


Challenge accepted and completed in about 20 minutes! I used our university colors but as I was crocheting the middle stripes, I had to laugh out loud (again! Yes, there was a lot of giggling during the making of this gift) . Now that I have a son that has gone through a Pokémon phase, I couldn’t get over the fact that if my friend does in fact use this little beauty, some might take her as a huge Pokémon fan ;)…which actually makes this gift even better!
To make it was truly simple. All you need are ch and hdc for the whole thing. If I make another, I’ll be sure to write the pattern to share with you 🙂


A Pokemon Party

My son had his 8th birthday party over the weekend. He wanted a Pokemon/Soccer party, so I made the cupcakes (in soccer ball wrappers and decorated them as Poke-balls (at least that’s what I call them…what are those things called?!?)

The little drawstring bags were kind of a last-minute decision and I quickly whipped up the Pokemon themed bags to put their party gifts (a pack of Pokemon cards) in.

I, for one, am all Pokied out, but I think the boys really loved the party so I guess it was worth it 🙂
