    I posted this on the oven dress thread. My friend got a jar gripper for Christmas. The lady took a square of the rubberized shelf liner with the holes. She then crocheted around it. Voila a jar lid gripper to help loosed those stuck lidsMy mother was in an extended care facility and the cook there made her the cutest "bibs". They look just like little aprons. She isn't embarrased to wear them they are so cute.

    Maybe even those Mug cozies, that wrap around your coffee mug.

    Here is one, it's called an Exerise Block. It's just a plain little block of wood, probably measures 1 1/2 inches all round the edges. The tag says:
    Instructions:
    1. Place block in center of floor.
    2. Walk around it 2 times.
    3. Sit down on the sofa.
    Congratulations! You just walked
    the block twice.
    A guy displaying his woodwork at a craft show had these for sale at a $1.00 a piece. Great for stocking stuffers.
    The tag is attached with a pretty ribbon.

    speaking of dogs-------------a lady in JoAnns was looking for fabric to make dog collars. she simply uses webbing, covers it with pretty fabric and adds "D" rings. I made a couple for my DD's dogs. I'll get a pic for you.

    Do some in flannel-------------they feel sooooooooo good. After using one for awhile who cares is it matches the bed And these are quick to make once you get your rythm.

    Credit card holders or quilted coin purses. I made them for Christmas and they were using them before the wrapping paper hit the floor.

    Here is a good idea , its a baby teething towel. you use the plastic that is in cereal boxes, cut it in square or circle then sandwich it between material like flannel, and sew it up
    u can quilt a little figure on center it crinkles and makes noise for infants when they hold it or put it in mouth and its safe
    also i make change purses they are easy popular. Had a pic on line here almost have tutorial done

    Aprons, hanging stove towels, pot holders, casserole carriers, pincushions, quilts, table runners, placemats, coasters, Hot pads, scruchies for pony tails, pillowcases, canning goods, baked goods. Depends on when you make the craft sale, go with items with the seasons theme. All of the above mentioned items are great sellers at our Craft Sale at our church.

    Christmas ornaments usually go well at craft shows. Usually inexpensive and can usually be made from scraps. I made dog and cat ornaments that were snatched up quickly.

    Lazy Girl patterns are copyrighted and they do not allow you to sell constructed items. I saw so many folks on her blog talking about selling them that I e-mailed and asked. Joan personally responded and said it is a violation of the copyright and we are NOT supposed to sell them. She thanked me for honoring her copyright.

    According to a legal opinion I read, the PATTERN may not be copied or sold in any way, but the projects you make from them is your property and you may sell them regardless of what the pattern maker says.

    Wow, I'd really like to read this. I have had so many plans go down the tubes because of copyright issues. May I have the website, please!?
