1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Easy/Cheap Stitch Markers! 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  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt Backing - Help Me Choose! on: November 19, 2008 06:53:19 AM
So if I were to make a quilt using Moda Recess Charm Packs:

(I will probably also supplement the charm packs with a solid)
 
What would make a better quilt back?

Dogs - http://www.emeraldcityfabric.com/ProductImages/D1555-760_1200x1200M.jpg
 
Jane - http://www.emeraldcityfabric.com/ProductImages/DJ3312-WHIT-D_1000x1000M.jpg

I do have 2 dogs, so I think the dogs one is really cute, and I love the orange but the Jane one is sooooo cute and so retro... so hard to choose!

Or, do you think both are terrible and you have another suggestion?

Thanks for your comments/thoughts!
