I found a Koala Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koalas for my kids in reverse color. Some ideas to make it differently: 1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on it’s head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper. 2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler etc… 3. And, and…. instead of poly-fills, stuff beads into the body to weight it down and with the magnets of it limbs, it can be a cute memo holder on your desk too 4. Find the appropriate positions for the ears, approx at the center of the vertical cross section of the head, middle of the height. Lastly, stuff and sew the limbs to the body.

Creative Kismet & Blog Archive & little guiding stars Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self. Especially when that nasty gremlins try to creep in and stump me. I remembered this origami star video on You Tube and had to get them involved in my plan. I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside. I made 60 of them, enough to last me the whole year if I open one a week, plus a few extra just in case. I used 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper and cut 1/2 x 12″ strips, then followed the video HERE*. *UPDATE! Be Sociable, Share!

This Crayon Roll Holder is a great and useful gift for children! I noticed on our crayon roll that the inner fabric lining gets marked up quite a bit from the crayons going in and out. So this time instead of using interfacing on the lining piece I covered it with iron on vinyl. You need: 1 – 5 X 16 1/2 inch piece of fabric for the outside 1 – 5 X 16 1/2 inch piece of fabric the the inside 1 – 6 X 16 1/2 inch piece of fabric folded lenghtwise and pressed for the pocket ric rac (if desired) 1 – 5 X 16 1/2 piece of iron on vinyl 1 Cord Stop Iron on the vinyl to the right side of your lining piece following package directions. Place pocket piece ontop of right side of lining. If using ric rac pin it around the edges, overlap at bottom. Place outside piece ontop of pocket and lining, right sides together. Sew all the way around 1/4 inch from the edge. Clip corners and turn. Finished! Related Posts: Crayon Roll Tutorial Felt Crayon Roll Tutorial Welcome, StumbleUpon visitor!

A Girl You Should Date « nona merah Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books.

She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. Buy her another cup of coffee. It’s easy to date a girl who reads. She has to give it a shot somehow. Fail her. Why be frightened of everything that you are not? If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. You will propose on a hot air balloon. You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. Or better yet, date a girl who writes. – Rosemarie Urquico – Like this: Like Loading...

stitch » amigurumi doll pattern amigurumi doll pattern materials i used rowan wool cotton (which is dk weight) on a 3mm hook for the body. the dress and shoes are worked in the same yarn on a 3.5mm hook. i had 6 50g gram balls and used a full ball of beige for the hair, approx. 40g of the cream (face, hands, legs) and 30g of the remaining colours (light green, dark green, turquoise and yellow). the finished doll is 14″ tall. you can use any yarn you like but remember to use a smaller than usual hook to keep the fabric tight and stop the filling escaping or showing through. rows and spirals i worked the striped sections in rows as it prevents the jog at the end of the stripe. amigurumi is usually worked in spirals and the fabric thus created looks different to that worked in rows. since i prefer the traditional amigurumi look (but hate the jogs) i worked the solid colour sections in spirals – it’s easy to switch back and forth – but you can choose to work it all in rows or all spirals if you prefer. working from charts

Sunset Crochet Carinas Craftblog: Granny square joining tutorial Just a warning before we get started with the tutorial, there's LOTS of pictures and I may go into too much detail, but that's just what I do. ;-) By the way, this is the yarn I use. Dc/treble: this refers to the same stitch. Dc if you use US crochet terms and treble if you use UK terms. July 2012 - Please note: these days I do very little crochet because I'm working on an embroidery book. The book writing also means I may not have time to help with any crochet-y questions/problems. There are loads of methods of joining (granny) squares, my method is just one, and may not even be the best. If you have particular layout for your blanket in mind, lay out your squares in that pattern. Then stack your squares so you can keep track of what goes where. Because of how this method works, it is best to have as few squares in each stack as possible. Take the top square and put it on the left and then the next square and keep that on the right. Lay the rows together with backs facing each other.

Quick fix grocery bag We had grapes this weekend. So? They were really good. Seedless white grapes and they came in one of those plastic bags, with cuts all over to make it stretchy. Hours after we had the grapes, while in the kitchen, my eye fell upon the plastic bag again. I found a shirt - an old favorite but hopelessly stained one (bleach* near the bottom hem). In case you want to give this super fast and easy grocery bag a try as well, keep on reading as I wrote down some instructions for you. What you need: - an old T-shirt- scissors- matching thread- a button- a piece of ribbon- sewing machine Instructions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Take one sleeve and cut to size, such that the folded bag fits inside the sleeve (make sure to add seam allowance). As with all of my tutorials, please note, this tutorial is intended for personal use only. * the bleach stains ended up the in hem and one of the boxed corners!!
