Rainbow Crochet Zipped Coin Purse Tutorial & SparklePetal - StumbleUpon

Rainbow Crochet Zipped Coin Purse Tutorial & SparklePetal - StumbleUpon
May 16, 2010 by sparklepetal This tutorial is to explain how I made my Rainbow Crochet Zipped Coin Purse. It’s my first tutorial, so I hope it makes sense (let me know if it doesn’t) and please excuse some dodgy low-light photography! To start with you need to crochet your circle. When you fold the circle in half it will look like a little crocheted rainbow: To turn this rainbow into a zipped coin purse you will need a small piece of lining fabric (8 inches square is plenty) and a zip slightly longer than the curved edge. Turn under a half-inch on one side of each tab and pin that edge onto the zip: Undo the zip half way. Stitch, close to the turned edge of each tab: Trim the excess zip on each end: Trim the tabs to slant inwards: Fold the lining fabric in half and lay the rainbow on the fabric: Cut around the rainbow leaving a half-inch border to give the rough size and shape for your lining: Put some tiny notches along the curved edges of the lining: Now place the lining inside the rainbow.

Little Tin Bird & Basic Granny Square Pattern - StumbleUpon As promised, here is my pattern for the Basic Granny Square. I didn’t invent this pattern in the slightest, (obviously) but I’m going to show you step by step how to make the basic granny square. When I started to learn I couldn’t find a pattern that I could understand easily and so I hope to change that by doing one with lots of pictures :-) This is the pattern I used to make the squares for the Granny Alice blanket (above). For this pattern, you will need to know how to chain stitch, and how to make a UK treble (TR) stitch. If you don’t know how to make a TR stitch, have a look HERE. I am using Rowan Handknit Cotton DK (and a 4mm hook) to write this pattern as I think it’s easier to see the stitches with cotton than wool. Basic Granny Square Pattern. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. You may wish to block your squares. I hope this pattern is of some help to you anyway :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Ideal as fund-raisers, these sweet Babies are quick to knit and each one only requires 25 grams [less than 1 ounce] of yarn and the same amount of stuffing. The doll measures just 17cm [6¾ in] high without the cap. You can make pink or brown Babies, but be sure to choose lovely bright colours for the rest of the design, in keeping with the rainbow theme.

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!

iPad 2 Cozy (or Book Cozy) You need:approx. 100g sock yarn (or a small stack of scraps)3.50 mm (E) hookone button Note: this pattern uses American terms, the British terms are in [brackets]. This cozy snugly fits an iPad 2, the dimensions of which are 9.5 inches (24.12 cm) x 7.31 inches (18.57 cm). Sock yarn is stretchy and I wanted a snugly-fitting cover, so it's slightly smaller than the device itself. A note about gauge Gauge. Ugh. What an odious way to begin a pattern. This cozy is basically a 12" (30.5 cm) x 12" (30.5 cm) square, made of smaller squares that are 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. How many squares do I need? SQUARE Round 1: Chain two, then do a SC [DC] in the same stitch below (this counts as your first SC [DC] here and throughout), then do 3 SC (DC) into the circle made by the first chain. Round 2: Chain one, then do a SC [DC] in the same stitch below. Round 3: Chain one, then do a SC [DC] in the same stitch below. Round 4: Chain one, then do a SC [DC] in the same stitch below. Now the tricky bit.
