Sewing Vintage Take a look at this marvel of engineering! My poor dress form is not up to displaying a brassiere of this magnitude. This is a size 44 Camp fan-laced brassiere. Made of sturdy, flat-felled, pink polished cotton, you can see that you can adjust your lift with the underbust slings and buttons. Sewing Vintage

Five Green Acres Five Green Acres It’s here, it’s here! As promised, the Sweater Mitten Tutorial is ALL YOURS, with plenty of time to whip out a dozen pairs for the Holidays. These are patterns I’ve used dozens of times, so many times that I’d rather not make them in bulk ever again. The patterns were given to me by a kind and generous woman in Northern Wisconsin who whips out dozens of them each year, both for her family and to sell. It was in this spirit of generosity and crafting for the greater good that I’ve decided to in turn, share the patterns with you. Through my own use, I’ve made my own modifications, omitting the turned cuff that you may have seen as part of many sweater mittens, and modifying the fit slightly.

Learning to Loom Knit - Round Looms Since learning to knit with a loom some months ago, I've been asked many times to give a run down on how to do it. So finally here it is... - I am not a professional. I've only been looming a few months but I do pick things up very quickly. - Everyone has their own style. As with knitting and crochet, everyone has their own way of doing it. Learning to Loom Knit - Round Looms

How to Recycle Yarn from a Thrift-Store Sweater

thrift stores are full of dorky sweater vests. i got this idea to restyle one into a cute dirndl-bodice-like top. (that adorable felt flower brooch is from the fabulous woolly fabulous!) i liked the nordic looking pattern knitted into this one, and the silver buttons. it was kind of frumpy and big to begin with, but priced right at $1.99. it was wool so i shrunk it in the washer and dryer first, which made it small enough that i didn’t have to cut the armholes or the bottom, only the part around the bust. i should have taken a picture of how i cut it, but in my excitement i forgot so i drew this diagram to show you… i put it on and marked where i would like it to sit at the bust. then i cut from the shoulder (leaving a little extra for seam allowance) and finished the edge with some red piping. i also shaped it in a little bit at the waist since it was still too boxy. i think it’s cute for spring! sweet sweater vest « knick knacks & ric rac sweet sweater vest « knick knacks & ric rac
Edited to add: I take it for granted that everyone knows the true "first step"... felt (wash it in a hot wash & throw it in the dryer) your sweater before you cut your mitten pieces. This will prevent your pieces from unraveling. The first step is to create your pattern.
