Puff Daddy - knitted stool

Puff Daddy - knitted stool
Puff is the Norwegian word for stool. We really liked the pouf from Christien Meinderstsma, but it´s way out of our price range. This simple pattern for a knitted stool has much thinner yarn, but the budget is just as thin;) Nice to rest your legs on, and very popular for the kids. What we used:Eskimo, 18 balls (Or yarn suitable for US #13 needles)Acrylic yarn would probably be a really good alternative, as it´s a piece of furnitureUS #19 circular needles2 cheap duves (feather and down) How we did it:Cast on 35 stitches using three threads.Knit the garter stitch until you´ve knitted all the balls, and there is just enough yarn left to asseble the stool. You now have ONE rectangular piece.Cast off loosely. Assemble the first long side. Stuff the duves into the stool. Assemble the other end in the same manner as the first. And there you go! This is a free stool knitting pattern from

Crochet Pattern and Models for Table Center Piece - Sewing Crochet and Crafts Cover that naked table in your dining room with a crocheted tablecloth or table runner. Images From Internet Jewelry Dishes I love the vitrines at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that are filled with household artifacts from places long ago and far away. Tightly woven mats and perfectly crafted sandals, hammered metal and braided leather, ancient objects still feel alive with the integrity and vitality of their makers. What sometimes also strikes me is how little our aesthetic values have changed over the thousands of years. Beauty is still a human imperative and careful craftsmanship is still a revered skill. We still respond to simple shapes and beautiful materials, to whimsical embellishments and practical uses. I thought about this a lot as I crocheted these Jewelry Dishes.

Big Cuddly Bunny My hometown has an agricultural fair every August that I rarely miss. My brother watches the oxen pulls for hours and my mother lingers over the prize vegetables, but I always head straight for the rabbits! I totally love them: their blinky eyes, their fat bellies and their ridiculous ears. And so when it comes to Easter and its wonderful cast of characters, for me, the bunny wins. Our Big Cuddly Bunny gets its shape and inspiration from this winter's Big Snowy Owl. the Creations of Crazy Dazy k: knit st(s): stitch(es) kfb: increase by knitting into the front and back of the same st sl: slip

Felt Owl Brooch After showing you the sneak peek at this cute little guy yesterday I just had to sit down in my tea break this afternoon and write up the tutorial for how to make your own :) If you've been reading my blog since it started you may recognise him as he's based on an old & now discontinued design I used to sell in my Etsy shop a few years ago. I keep seeing owls popping up all over the place at the moment so it seemed like a good time to dig out my old pattern! To make your owl brooch you will need: - a needle, a pin, scissors, and the template at the bottom of this post - two colours of felt to make the owl's body and wings (I used a dark chestnut brown and ginger) - thread to match these two colours - scraps of black, white and orange felt - black, white and orange thread - a brooch clasp or safety pin

Weekend Art Project « The New Domestic e made a painting this weekend! We’ve been wanting a large scale art-piece to go up on our dining room wall. We had a large framed photograph up but, at 26″ x 32″, it didn’t have the right scale for the room. We wanted to go big. Föndrari af lífi og sál: Crochet jar cover - pattern Shell jar You may need to adjust this pattern to what kind of jar and/or yarn you are using. I recommend to crochet a bottom because I think otherwise the surface will heat too much. Also it is good to remember the importance of never leaving a lighted candle in a jar unattended. Zippered Hand Warmers Zippers, in this case, dispose of their actual use and embrace the whimsy of their style. Bold and chunky, bright and friendly, these zippers are here for our entertainment only! Wear them on the palm side or the knuckle side; up, down, or half way in between, they'll make you smile! Madeline Tosh's new Tosh Merino DK sets the stage for all of this zipper play. Right in between Tosh Light and Tosh Worsted, the DK weight is the same beautiful single ply superwash merino as its cousins. And most importantly, it comes in the same palette of luminescent hand dyed colors that makes Madeline Tosh some of our very favorite yarn!
