My oldest son just started kindergarten and really loves it. Everyday he tells me that everything is so much fun but when I ask him what he actually did he says he can’t remember. At least I’m getting a positive reaction! Although he likes it he is still trying to figure the whole thing out – I think! I vividly remember my kindergarten teacher, Mrs.
I was excited by the challenge to use nothing but a pair of my favorite orange handled scissors for this project. I knew immediately that I wanted to use them to cut lengths of t-shirt weight jersey knit to make my own balls of yarn as I have been wanting to start on a large scale crochet project for a while. Having been inspired by some lovely area rugs online and in stores, but knowing that purchasing enough yarn to complete such a project would be cost prohibitive, I decided to make my own! I bought several yards of jersey knit from the fabric store. Jersey knit can be bought at a very reasonable price if you shop around.
This stitch is typically used for leaf patterns. It throws out a padded effect on the motif. The stitch looks a bit difficult, but has no complications when you start to stitch. In fact, you will enjoy it as you see a beautiful, richly filled leaf emerging as you go along. I have used a leaf pattern to illustrate . It is divided into three lines, namely, A, B and C, which will act as the respective stitch lines.
Project excerpted from More Softies Only a Mother Could Love: 22 Hapless but Lovable Friends to Sew and Crochet I based this giraffe pattern on a collage I made out of vintage paper. After being inspired by other "giraffe makers,” I decided to turn the design into a three-dimensional toy.
This is a super-simple nine-patch baby quilt (38" x 53") that you can make with 9 fat quarters and 2-5/8 yards of a neutral solid background fabric for both the front and back. I used Kona Coal for the background solid and Kona Grass Green for the binding. The quilt back is a little quieter, and features four "floating" blocks. If you would like to make one, you can download the pattern right here! Download Nine-Patch Lattice Quilt
I love this quilt. I was trying to figure out what to do with a charm pack I bought of this blossom fabric, which is like my absolute favorite. (I made a full size huge quilt out of this that's being quilted in Poulsbo) Charm packs are pre cut 5"squares, a piece from each fabric in the designers line, which I also love being able to see ALL the fabrics!
Today I discovered a common thread. I've been loving quilts with a certain look... lots of color, contrast and an emerging design. Turns out I love value quilts.

3D lace has become quite a popular staple around here at Urban Threads, as has steampunk , so as the Christmas season descends, it only makes sense to combine them! Eh? I’m sure you’re nodding right now. We’ve come up with a fabulous little lace design I’m affectionately calling a steamflake, as it's a little 3D lace steampunk snowflake !
To make your newfangled checkbook cover, you’ll need your cover fabric, some lining fabric, and a few bits of fabric for appliqué. I used some of my lining fabric as part of my appliqué, so it would all coordinate. You’ll also want some tag board or thin cardboard, and a bit of spray fixative.
All my closest friends know that I ( Chanel ) am forever on the search for the perfect, chic lunch box.
This is an easy join and works well on those yarns that cannot be felted. It requires a yarn needle. It can make things easier if you use a small needle and break the yarn end instead of cutting it. When you break the yarn, the tapered end it creates allows the tail to pass more smoothly through the shaft of the yarn. First, thread one of your yarn ends on a yarn needle.
