25 Days of a Crafty Christmas Day 15

Decorative Dish Gloves

What you will need:
Dish gloves
1/4 yard Fabric or Oilcloth
Ribbon/Trim (optional)
Sewing Machine
Hot glue gun (optional)

1. Wrap fabric around glove opening one and a half times.  This will be your measurement on how long the fabric needs to be.  Cut at 1.5x mark.  Depending on how much fabric you want at the top of your gloves will determine the width of the fabric you will cut.  The width on my finished set is 5 inches.

2. You will want to “ruffle” the fabric before you place it on your gloves.  It is VERY easy to make a ruffle.  I am sure I do not do it the correct way but coming from someone that knows VERY little about sewing, I think this is the easiest.  Just set your sewing machine to make a long stitch and sew down the long piece of fabric making a straight line.  You will then hold the threads on one side and pull one of the threads on the other to make the ruffle.  I also found this tutorial on how to make ruffles, to help.

3. Place fabric around gloves and measure to make sure you have pulled enough ruffle.  When you get the look you want, remove the fabric from the gloves. Take the short edges of the fabric, put the “right” sides together, and sew them together.  You should now have a complete ruffled circle.

4. Slide the glove onto your sewing machine. Place the fabric wrong-side out on the machine over the glove, leaving a 1/2" of glove at the top, and stitch together.

5. (optional) Hot glue coordinating ribbon around the glove, leaving two long tails on the top of the glove (if you want a bow). Tie the tails in a bow.

**Note: I did a zig-zag stitch around all raw edges of my fabric before sewing anything.  If you have a serger just do a quick serg.  Or, if you like the frayed look just leave them raw.

That’s it!  This project cost a total of $0.97!  The gloves were on sale and I had a coupon, the rest of the items I already had on hand.

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

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
