See the updated version of this project here!


This was one of my favorite crafts to make because it is really relaxing just like knitting and crocheting! This is just like making one of those paracord bracelets, except with yarn. I got some neato small yarn just for making these! Here is what you will be making: These are straight, but you don't need an expert to tell you that making them into a bracelet is as easy as knotting the two ends together (which is what you do..). Ok so now take your 3ft., 2ft., and other 2ft. strand and lay them out. Put your knotted strand under the 3ft. strand. After about 5 or 6 repeats you can start to see the pattern! Once you start to repeat you should start to see the "V" that is created every two repeats.

Ok guys hope you liked this as much as I do! Ty. The 30 Minute $6 Dress Tutorial. Guest post by Rachael at Talk 2 the Trees.

The 30 Minute $6 Dress Tutorial

The perfect dress is hard to come by. I like my dresses to be cheap, and long enough. (I’m not a fan of super short dresses!)

Lightly press it down making sure it's smooth and not wrinkled Leave to air dry for at least 15 minutes and then if you wish give it a blast with the heat tool Only move onto this step when you are sure your paint is completely dryTake your water filled spritzer bottle, spray the back of the paper no more than two squirts, you don't want it too wet Next start to rub the paper very gently with your finger Keep rubbing and extra spritzing if you need too Eventually you will get rid of all the paper, but it does take a bit of patience as you have to be careful not to wet it too much and rub the image away.

T-Shirt "Yarn" Tutorial. I know what you’re thinking–you’re thinking, “t-shirt what?”

T-Shirt "Yarn" Tutorial

You heard me. I said, T-shirt yarn. Get a load of this… Oh, yeah…it’s cotton “yarn” made from a spiral cut T-shirt. I first saw this done over at Polka Dot Pineapple and was intrigued because, well… does everyone on earth have a huge pile of orphan T-shirts that nobody wears, but they can’t seem to part with… or is it just me? So let’s get real green and do something useful with some of them…shall we? Start with a regular t-shirt that has lived a good life…no guilt now. Cut off the bottom hem. Now cut the top off just under the sleeves… so you have a tube of fabric. Fold it nearly in half, leaving the under side sticking out about an inch.

Now cut from right to left all the way up to and just past the top fabric, but leave the one inch margin of the lower fabric uncut. It should look like this. If you need more instructions click HERE for a sweet little diagram and bag pattern. but that color is too…too…orange not to be used properly. How to Cable Without a Cable Needle.

I got a gig teaching a recycled t-shirt project at the library a few months ago, with a request for a recycled tee bag – the only bags I’d made from tees in the past had required sturdy sewing, and I didn’t want hand-sewing to be the only thing holding the bottom closed in a class version of the bags, so I started brainstorming about some kind of hand-sewing-friendly or no-sew bag idea…. and here’s what I came up with! The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl-tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed! As you can see, even with a not huge tee, this will still leave a significant hole in the bottom of your bag, but for purposes like grocery shopping, this size hole shouldn’t really matter… But to make smaller holes, just make more than one of them!

Here’s a bag bottom with 2 holes: You could make it rounded, V-shaped, or squared like this one: My finished Sonic bag! The &How Many&?& Knitting Tool - StumbleUpon. If I want to decrease 14 stitches over 6 inches - how many rows should I work between decreases? My pattern needs me to increase 13 stitches evenly over a row - how often do I increase? I want to knit something 13 inches wide - how many stitches do I cast on? I want to knit a piece 22.5 inches long - how many rows do I work? Before you rush screaming for the calculator (or even worse, a paper & pencil), try these tools. The only extra thing you need to know is your current gauge (i.e. how many stitches and rows per inch you are knitting). All measurements are in inches. « I Aten't Dead © 2014 All rights reserved. Right, so I didn’t update again for the whole of October, even after I said I would, and I haven’t shared any projects that were knitted after August. What have I been up to then? Knitting! I’ve made a huge dent in my Christmas knitting, and I’m beginning to think, maybe too optimistically, that I could even be done before December rolls around. We’ll see. I also purchased a Kindle, which I love, love, love. The pattern is pretty straightforward, but I thought I’d share it if anyone else would like to make one! Cabled Kindle Sleeve Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted, 70-90 yards (60-85 m). I wanted a snug fit, so I calculated that in would be about for a unstretched fit it the case would need 44-48 sts, and cast on 40.

Adaptations for the new Kindles: For the smaller no-keypad Kindle, subtract 1″ (2 cm) from the original total height of 8.5″ (21 cm) to 7.5″ (19 cm) and for the Kindle Touch, subtract .5″ (1 cm) to 8″ (20 cm) for the total length. 2 x 2 Left Cross: Happy knitting!
