I’m really pleased with these little knitted Bingo Buck* pouches that I just finished making of kitchen cotton yarn for the Crochet Corner ladies.
Like the large white wooden beads? I thought it might be easier for the ladies to get a buttonhole on and off one of those than a flat button. I’m sure that Laura Bain wrote the pattern, “Card Envelope”, with a single gift card in mind but, since my envelopes are meant to hold several Bingo Buck cards, I made them a little larger.
My laaast Christmas project for 2015 is going to be a batch of Zooty Owl’s Granny Star ornaments. Tonight they’re more appealing to me than the pretty Holly Leaves pins that I picked out months ago simply because I think they’ll be much faster for me to finish.
I hope you’re all nearing the end of your Christmas Project Lists too. Happy hooking, knitting, sewing, baking, etc., etc., etc.!!
* Bingo Bucks are what I call the coupons, each worth 5 cents, that nursing home residents can win by playing Bingo on Wednesday nights. – Ellen refers to them as Funny Money. – They’re used to buy bargain-priced snacks, personal care products and small gifts at the Rec. Dept.’s “Corner Store”.
