Fall makes me want to bake! It's true, it does. However, if I bake I eat and that is bad, very, very bad (at least for my waistline). So I'm always on the look out for cute ways to give away food. Yesterday I made a giant batch of pumpkin muffins and needed to give them away so I quickly whipped out my scrapbook supplies and crafted two really quick baskets. They are both made from just 1 piece of 12x12 paper each and some ribbon. Both baskets will be made from following this first steps. When you are done scoring your paper, you want to take the corner pieces, the ones with the diagonal score marks and fold all of them in. Once your paper is scored and corner creases are folded, you'll need to decide which basket you want to make. Take the corner folds and push them into the center.

Now to make the other basket, it's just as easy. Then take each corner fold and instead of pushing it to the center, push it to it's left and tape down on the inside of the basket/box. Loom Knitting Video. Knitting Looms. Knitting looms are simple weaving tools made of wood or plastic.

Knitting Looms

Using a wrapping process, yarn is wound around the pegs of a loom to create rows of knitting. The process is simple, but the variety, shapes and sizes of looms are growing constantly as loom knitters experiment with their craft. If you are new to the world of the knitting loom, you are in the right place. The Loom Room is a website all about knitting looms: how to loom knit, where to get quality looms, and where to find others who love loom knitting, too. Please enjoy our free loom knitting patterns and instructional videos. Make your own pom poms. Pom Poms require a little bit of patience, but its quite satisfying when you finally get to cut them and produce your pom pom. You can make them whatever size you like, but I would suggest starting with a small pom pom so it doesn't take forever. You will need: CardboardCompass, or two circular items you can trace around.WoolScissorsMethodStep one in making pom poms is to create two donut shaped pieces of cardboard.

Using your compass or larger of your two circular items, trace out two circles on your cardboard. I would suggest about 5cm (2 inches) diameter. Place the rings together. The next step is the trickiest in making pom poms. Pass a length of wool between the two pieces of cardboard, around all the strands of wool, and tie it firmly together. VariationsTo provide variety you could make pom poms in different colours, or use different coloured lengths of wool in the one pom pom. What next? One obvious idea is to use them on knitted hats. Another idea is a pom-pom 'puppet'.
