25 Days of a Crafty Christmas Day 12

Hooded Towel

You will need:
Bath Towel
Hand Towel (NOT wash rag)
Sewing Machine

1.  Fold your hand towel in half with the two "decorative" edges together and cut on the fold. You will then fold the half in half (again, your decorated edges should be touching), find the center and mark with a pin.  Also, fold your bath towel in half (decorative edges touching) to find the center, and mark with a pin.

2. Line up both towels together with “right” sides (the side you want on the OUTISIDE once finished) together.  This is why you placed a pin in each towel in step one, so you could easily find the center.  Just line both pins up.  Pin towels together, you will want the bath towel to stick out a bit further than the hand towel.  Sew approximately 1/4" from the edge of the hand towel.

3. Turn over towel straighten the bath towel edge OVER the hand towel edge covering the raw edge. Sew along the finished edge of the bath towel to encase your raw edge.  This will give you a nice edge.

4. Now you will turn your towel over so the “right” side is DOWN.  Fold hand towel down, toward you, until the edges are touching.  You are now going to sew each side together, once done you should start seeing the “hood”.

5. Turn towel over, “right” side up.  Now you are going to fold the corners down to the edge of the “hood”.  Sew along edges.

That’s it!  You can add ribbon, appliqu├ęs, just about anything to add your own special touch to make these unique.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
