I lined the straps of my dress by sewing two identical pieces together in a tube and closing one end and sewing the open end in to the seam of the dress which worked really well. It makes the dress a little hotter but creates a nicer finish. To make a nicer seam just cut both halves in one piece and fold in half then sew and sew the folded seam so that it is the side in the middle of the dress.

Finger puppets for all reasons! Finger puppets for all reasons! Once upon a time, there was a pair of number 3mm knitting needles, several scaps of coloured yarn, a darning needle, some embroidery floss - and an inquisitive child, longing to learn something new and have fun at the same time!

(by the way most of my yarn is Vanna's Choice by Lion Brand) The perfect way to use these oddments up is to knit finger puppets - you can create a whole scenario, just by using a bit of imagination. Are you sitting comfortably, then we'll begin.

today i am crocheting little flowers getting ready for my art group tonight. we are making crochet flower necklaces like the one lori gardner made. (i'll link to her photos when she posts them) she wore it to art group one night and stunned us all. i almost gave up with the tutorial today.... the lighting was too bright, the yarn was too fuzzy and my camera wouldn't focus, i forgot to ride my bike up to the school to pick up the kids. (the little voice on the phone- mom, aren't you coming to get us?) does that spell mom failure with capital letters or what? artful thursdays #19....crochet flower tutorial artful thursdays #19....crochet flower tutorial
