1  Craft Journal template in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by littlem on: January 29, 2009 07:24:13 PM
When I had more time for swaps, I liked to add in a themed version of a craft journal. Because postage overseas for paper based things can expensive, I've kept it to a bare minimum. You can always photocopy or print off more templates and add them, and I finding keeping a journal in a clip folder the easiest way as I'm always changing my mind.

Anyhow, heres some basic instructions on how to make your own craft journal.

   1. Find a folder for your journal and decorate the cover.
   2. Print off the craft journal template from http://gustoso.wordpress.com/2009/01/27/make-your-own-craft-journal/
   3. Decide if you are going to use plastic sheet protectors, if not punch holes.
   4. Add some white paper for sketching and some ruled paper for writing in the journal section.
   5. Decorate the divider pages (e.g. patterns, swaps, completed projects, wish list, reference, journal)
   6. Add and decorate pages as you wish.
   7. Dont forget to add photos and swatches of fabric and yarn.

Love to see your results.

2  Recycled Sari Yarn in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by littlem on: November 14, 2006 11:47:41 PM

I love recycled sari yarn. I was wanting to knit something with it, perhaps this shawl:

Can anyone recommend a (free) pattern in a similar style and let me know how much yarn I should order?

Any other suggestion on how to best use it also welcome.

Here's my huge package from SilverWing - the photo really doesn't do it justice though!

Now if you could see a closer shot.... you might discover that half of those lollies have been eaten and they are now just empty boxes! Loved the orange and watermelons the best!  Grin

Here's what I received from Ralph:

Handmade journal, 3 necklaces and bangle

Handmade cards

For some no particular reason I missed photoing the little bag and some cute keyrings. Sorry for the delay (I've been sick)...... it was all very lovely, and I am already getting together a stash for the next swap!
