Do you like the Dollar Stores (by a variety of names) as much as I do?  I refuse to buy their sweatshop crocheted items, but occasionally I find items there that I can use in my crochet work.  Here are some ideas.

Like I said, don’t buy their doilies.  But, do pick up a couple cute bars of soap and crochet your own doily cover.  Make it pretty.

DOILY COVERED SOAPS

Gift for a tea-loving friend – this nifty little graphic mug cozy – and a way to make it less slippery.

Rather than raiding your button stash for what might be antique (thus valuable) buttons, buy a bag of cheap-o buttons such as these shirt buttons or some color-themed kiddie types, and make a cute necklace.

The ‘real’ Chewbacca never looked this cute!

Dig around at the dollarstorecrafts.com site and you’ll find other appealing ideas for crochet – and other crafting.  Hard to go wrong when you can make a gift, home decor project, or a bauble for yourself for about $1.
