Dubbla fasta maskor - perfekt till grytlappar Hur man virkar dubbla fasta maskor Dessa maskor virkas nästan som vanliga fasta maskor men med två nedtag. Maskorna går endast virka i varvvirkning och passar bra till stadiga kanter eller arbeten du vill ha lite robustare eller stabilare, men det blir relativt stor skillnad på arbetet beroende på vilket garn/material du använder. Pröva att virka väskor, dynor, mattor, underlägg eller dylikt med dessa maskor. Tycker du att dubbelvirkade grytlappar är för tidskrävande att virka, så pröva då istället med dubbla fasta maskor. Dessa grytlappar blir också rätt tjocka och bra, och går mer än dubbelt så fort att virka. Patrons de broderie gratuits et vraiment sympas – Quelques modèles DMC, Mollie Makes et Mollie Johanson  – Le blog de Caro Tricote Hier soir, heureuse d’être enfin en week-end, je me suis fait une petite sélection de patrons de broderie en me disant que la fin de semaine ensoleillée qui s’annonce serait propice au DIY et à la création. En l’occurrence, je me suis dis que j’allais broder ! J’ai donc posté une photo de mes patrons sur Instagram et j’ai reçu beaucoup de questions sur la provenance de mes patrons à broder. L’idée a donc germé pendant la nuit : j’allais faire un article avec le lien vers tous les patrons téléchargeables afin de vous permettre de trouver très rapidement ces patrons et vous amuser à broder ou à vous lancer dans la broderie. Première source de patrons, le site de DMC vous propose de nouveaux modèles vraiment sympas et remis au goût du jour.

To recap: we've wrapped a core, measured and pinned it, then placed the guide lines. In this next series of photos, we will start working on an 8 point star (kiku) pattern from two centres - the North and South poles. For this you'll need to choose at least 2 colours (I'm using three) of thread, plus a contrasting metallic thread.

All Things Lovely I am little obsessed with Instagram at the moment, especially since I'm doing the Photo A Day challenge. Friends sometimes ask what apps I use for all my photos so I thought I'd share my favourites. This isn't a sponsored post, just my favourite and most used apps. I take the majority of my photos just with the camera on the iPhone. I never use the camera in the Instagram App, and will only edit my photos in Instagram if I'm in a hurry.

by June Gilbank Don’t miss the launch discount, at the end of this post! Now it’s November, I’m so excited to finally be able to launch my new Christmas patterns that I’ve been developing for the past few months: a perfectly-shaped Gingerbread Man and Girl! Chunky and flat, just like the edible version, my Gingerbread Family are crocheted amigurumi-style (in a continuous spiral) and are almost seamless, so you have minimal sewing to complete them. I can crochet and assemble a complete Gingerbread Man (minus the face and any other embellishments) in less time than it takes to watch a TV episode, so under 45 minutes – how’s that for speedy?! I’m imagining an army of amigurumi gingerbread for sale at Christmas craft fairs etc, and easy seasonal gifts for everyone who appreciates a little handmade whimsy.

18 Embroidery Instagram Feeds to Follow – Design*Sponge If you read design and lifestyle magazines and blogs, you know that ceramics are having a major renaissance right now. Everywhere I look, there’s a new article on the next wave of ceramicists, and it seems like (thanks to pottery classes everywhere) we’re all learning how to make our own dinner plates. I think any resurgence of handmade goods is fantastic. And man, do I love anyone who knows how to make something beautiful on a potter’s wheel. But lately, I’ve been feeling a new wave of artists and makers start to swell — and their focus is on embroidery. All over the Internet (on social media and in shops and online boutiques), embroidery seems to be having a huge comeback.

It should be quite simple to follow, but if you have any questions please email me at Supplies; -a bit of yarn in white and any other color of your choice for the actual baby chick and a bit of black for the eyes (note, I use Borroco comfort yarn.
