Ladies and Gentlemen, a Charismatic Mega Doily. Bigger is better, especially when it comes to doilies. After seeing theMegaDoily at Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m a firm believer that no doily can ever be too big, is there a world record for the world’s largest doily? I’d like to know! These ones shown here, may or may not hold the record, but the charm is not lost in the scale. Designed by Jean Lee, these are hand knotted with cotton rope, using vintage doily patterns they make pretty rugs, and idea so simple, I wonder how is it possible our grandmothers weren’t making these?

So I thought some of you might like to have a bit of crafty fun too.
These stars use up tiny amounts of wool, so get your scraps box out! I used a mixture of hot colours.... .....and a nice mix of cool colours. You need to make 10 star 'points' or diamonds ( 5for the front and 5 for the back). You can make your stars bigger or smaller by varying the number of rows or by changing the yarn weight and hook size you use. (leave a long tail at the beginning so you can use it to sew up later) Ch 2 row 1: 2sc into 2nd ch from hook, turn. row 2: Ch1(turning chain) 1sc into first st, 2sc into 2nd st, turn. row 3: Ch1, 1sc into 1st st, 1sc into 2nd st, 2sc into last st, turn. row 4: Ch1, 1sc into 1st st, 1sc into each st across until last st, 2sc into last st, turn.
Start decreasing. The decrease pattern is as follows: Ch1, sk1st st, sc into next st and each st across, turn. (see photo above). Baby rainbow sandals. I've called these baby rainbow sandals because of the yarn I've used to make the most recent pair (Catania Color). However you can make them in a plain colour or two colours. I've indicated where to make the colour changes if you want to make the two-colour version (for a two-colour version see this post). These baby sandals are 10 cm/4 inches long so size 3 months approx. I have used Catania cotton yarn and a 3mm crochet hook and a tension of 6 sc and 6 rows of sc to an inch/2.5 cm. The sandals are worked in a single piece - the only things you need to sew on are the buttons.
I have used US terms for this pattern (even though I'm British) as most visitors to my blog seem to hail from the USA. US sc = UK dc US dc = UK tr Please do not sell this pattern or post it to any website. So here we go: Start with 15 ch.rnd 1: 1 sc in third chain from hook, 1 sc in each of next 11 chs, 3 sc in next chain, then work 12 sc down the other side of the row of chs.

How To: Make a Homemade Snow Globe. As Kate so delicately alluded to earlier this week, I am somewhat of a holiday junkie. And Christmas is the holiday of all holidays for me. I decorated a week before Thanksgiving; yep, I’m one of those people. One of my most favorite holiday traditions as a child was our little family advent calendar and now that my kids are old enough to enjoy some fun and creative activities, I’ve filled up our little numbered stockings with slips of paper instead of candy.
Well, slips of paper intermingled with candy. It’s December; we have to have candy. (There have been lots of questions about my advent calendar, and what I put into it. Snow globes are magical, whimsical, and fun. The first thing you need are jars, with nice snug lids. You can be creative with the items that go inside your snow globe, it’s just important that they are made of materials that won’t break down in water.

Side View. Amigurumi Snail. Crafting: Button Bracelets. Love buttons? Who doesn't?! Chances are, whether you are crafty or not, you have a stash of them laying around, or maybe an addiction to collecting vintage ones. Well today I have a simple project that will put them to good use, button bracelets! You can also use new buttons for this project, and these days there are so many cool ones available at your local fabric store, the design possibilities are endless.
What you'll need: Elastic, 1/4" or 3/8" thick Buttons Needle and Thread I decided on a yellow and seafoam green color palette for my bracelet, using a mix of some chunkier vintage buttons I have collected and a few new ones I purchased to match. Start by wrapping the elastic loosely around your wrist where you would like the bracelet to sit. With the elastic laid flat as a guide, make a rough layout of your button placement to determine the design and how many buttons you will need. Once your layout is ready, you can sew the elastic together securely, forming the bracelet. Melted Snowman Christmas Ornament craft instructions.
Cut a 6" length of elastic thread. Knot the two ends together in an overhand knot. This will be your hanger. Lay a piece of foil on your work surface. Place the hanger on the foil with the knot facing downward. Prepare the nose by cutting a 3/4" piece of orange pipe cleaner and folding it into a V shape.
Place aside for the moment. Start squeezing out a blob of hot glue directly on your foil gluing over the knot of your hanger but leaving the loop extending above the glue blob. Hint: When hanging your melted snowman on the Christmas tree, if you place him in front of a light, the light will shine right through your snowman. Printable Instructions Back Ornaments.
