This one turned out a little better.
My friend, Laura, and I used the cozy instructions from Craftsy. I rounded the corners on this one, but they didn’t come out very round. I also decided to skip the top stitching on this one. I glued the raw edges together and clamped them at the opening where I turned it.
We’ll see how well it holds up in the microwave and washer.
The 10” fabric squares are from Craftsy, too.
around my bowl cozy. It’s still a mess, but I guess it’s okay to slop tomato soup on.
On a Saturday night (should be song lyrics!)
We made memory wire bracelets:
My turquoise chips were easy, but Laura had to work hard reaming her freshwater pearls:
I have been searching for this video! I thought I’d added it to my playlists.
I found the floral wire at Dollar Tree, and I am looking forward to making some of these!
Look at what Nancy’s made, now!
I can’t believe I have to wait almost a year to hang it.
This one is special and will go on the front door at Mama’s House!
Kent’s cousin, Nancy, is as crafty as they come. We have the best time when we’re together! Look what she made, tonight! I love this candy cane covered can!
This turned out better than expected.
The pattern from Sticka till Barbie (#11) called for a complicated rib pattern. I had to change it up to make it simpler. I did a K1P1 rib throughout.
I knit while I’m watching TV, and a complicated pattern is too much to keep up with. That’s why the rainbow dress had so many mistakes. I was watching Panther football!
I did have to pay some attention. First of all, it called for an odd number of stitches. I had to make sure I was knitting my knits and purling my purls on the wrong side. Otherwise, I would have done a seed stitch. Seed stitch is not my favorite, though I may try a skirt, someday.
Speaking of skirts, the top of this dress did not look like it was working out right. I thought at one point, that I’d unravel it back to the skirt part and just cast it off.
I printed a copy of the pattern and highlighted all dimensions, stitch counts, cast offs, and decreases. Everything else was changed to K1P1. It came together just right! The finishing directions weren’t complete, but I figured it out.
Kent says it looks like a Wilma Flintstone dress! Maybe I need to string a few chunky beads!
I put together a simple chain necklace for Barbie. I hope she doesn’t look like a rapper!
to go with that white and gold belt, don’t you think?
This choker is made with white pearl seed beads and a small wine glass charm ring.
I am going to put a drop of clear glue on the last bead to hold them all in place.
