1  Easy/Cheap Stitch Markers! in Knitting: Completed Projects by SophieAnn on: February 12, 2009 06:31:24 AM
So I was at the dollar store yesterday and I saw these:


They're toggle-style clasps used for jewellery making.  8 clasps for $1.00.  I realized they'd be perfect for making stitch markers!

So I bought 2 packs of these beads as well ($1.00 each):


Here's the finished product.  8 stitch markers for $3 - with beads leftover.


For anyone who doesn't knit - those are mostly short-forms used in knitting pattern-writing.  Any beads would work (the dollar store had some glass beads that had nice weight to them), but I thought the letters were cute.  Wire might have been nice to string them up (except for the possibility of snagging), but I just used embroidery floss.

Easy peasy!   Grin

2  Re: Fabric Curlers *w/tutorial link **UPDATED pics of outcome p.1 ***AFTER WORK p.5 in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by SophieAnn on: November 10, 2008 08:16:34 AM
I saw this post last week and just HAD to make them.  So, on the weekend I made 12 curlers and a matching (fully lined!) zippered bag to store them in.  The fabric is from an old sheet I got at Value Village (which I used to make a skirt already).  I still need to make the buttonholes, after I learn how to make buttonholes on some scrap fabric.

I used the tutorial that was linked.  One modification I made:  I didn't have loose batting/stuffing but I did have polyester quilt batting.  So, I cut out sheets (3.5" by 15") of batting and then rolled the batting before stuffing it.  It worked really well to make nicely shaped rolls.



Edited to add:  These are going to be a Christmas gift for my neice.

Alright!  I had to join in on this thread - so this is my first post with pictures!  I've loved looking at all the sewing machines (where the picture links are still working).

This is my Viking 535.  I inheirited it from my great aunt a few years ago.  It's all metal, and works like a dream.  I have no idea how old it is (the Viking site was unhelpful) but it is OLD.

I love my Viking!   Grin
