Hello everyone! Tara here—
I love being able to start a project and finish it in a weekend. There’s something just so wonderful about quick and easy projects, and I love making them to take breaks from any larger project I may be working on.
And 3-day weekends make it that much easier to sit down and whip out a new project.
Since this weekend is Labor Day weekend here in the USA, let’s look at some designs you can make in a flash:
This one will be done before you know it. Make a couple and hide them away to give to your friends and coworkers for Christmas!
This cowl is perfect for chilly mornings and it stitches up quickly. It goes with any outfit and can be made with plain yarn, tweed yarn, or sparkly yarn, which will make it a favorite for you and your loved ones.
This one is a favorite! It stitches up quicker than you would think because it’s made with bulky-weight yarn and looks incredible in any color.
# 4: The Red Scarf
Make this scarf in this bold red or a rich green and anyone can wear this scarf with any outfit for a beautiful pop of color!
# 5: The Rugged Tote
This bag is perfect for any outing or even just storing your current projects! It’s quick to make and the neutral color makes it perfect for anyone.
While blankets can take a while to make, baby blankets come together so much quicker and this one is no exception.
Is there such a thing as too many baskets? Fill these with snacks, yarn, plants and other little trinkets and this will be a projects you’ll use all the time.
You can never have too many pillows, and there’s no reason to spend $45+ on one when you can make it yourself! This one adds calming color to any home, but it could easily be made in pinks, blues, and yellows to add a brighter and more vibrant pop.
Everyone loves dishcloths, pot holders and scrubbies. They’re so quick to make and something you and your loved ones can use again and again.
Enjoy your next 3-Day weekend!
What is your favorite thing to make that’s quick & easy?
