OK- so I know this is nothing spectacular, but I am brand new to felting and pretty excited by it..... this is one my first FOs...... still need to add a button or snaps to close it, but you get the idea
This is what happens when I shrink my laundry............ this is made from an old cardigan I accidentally shrunk, lined with some fleece and the flower is needle felted on. The handles are just some cheapo ones I picked up at Walmart
before I knew how to knit I remember seeing a pattern somewhere for baskets knit from hemp and rope........ I would really like to make some of these for my porch to organize the family hat,mitten, sunblock,seasonal item stash... Does anyone know what I am talking about/ where to find such a pattern/have ideas for such a project? Also, does knitting with hemp/ rope sound unbearable? I would just break down and buy some but I can't find anything that fits my shelf, looks good, and holds more than two hats...........................grrrrrrrrrr......help please!
my dh bought me a set of knifty knitters for christmas, and I LOVE to knit, but quite frankly don't see the point when I could knit the old fashioned way and return them for something I would really love (like more yarn, or a great book) BUT.... he tried really hard and it was a very thoughful gift- I don't want to hurt his feelings or worse yet, scare him away fom the craft store forever.....Do any of you knitters have these and if so are they great or just so-so ?....... I just don't understand what I am supposed to do with them. How are they better than regular old needles?
These are some hats I made for my nieces for christmas
my little ladybug modeling them
what do you think? and some little uggs for the baby- I know they have been done to death but I wanted to share anyway.I've been thinking about experimenting with wool and felting this pattern, anyone given this a try?
dumb ol me is puter illiterate and cannot figure out why one pic shows up and the other you have to click on..........hmm... what did I do wrong this time? Just when I thought I was getting smarter.... If anyone knows how to fix this and could dumb it down for me I would really appreciate it
OK - so I have this idea to make my niece a five little ducks playset- I want to knit a pond shape using blue fun fur and then make the ducks out of an old felted yellow sweater and some orange fleece I have lying around--- only problem is I don't know where to find a simple duck pattern............. also, I wanted to make some little felt lily pads or other pond-like things------ any suggestions?
These are some frames I salvaged from my favorite thrift shop--- a little acrylic paint, scrapbook supplies and some modge podge and they have a whole new life. This is my first posted project, not super creative, I know but still fun... and who doesn't like to recycle?
