Turning Japanese Bag – some variations Have you tried the Turning Japanese Bag pattern yet. You should give it a try – it’s really easy! Part of the ‘My First Bag series’ it’s a single pattern piece, no fancy zippers or closures, the handles are ready made and it’s perfect to showcase a really nice fabric or a large scale print. However, just because its simple, there’s no need to stop there. A simple pattern is often an ideal base to start from if you want to add a few additions of your own. In this example: I add a hard bottom and some shiny bag feetIt has a couple of small d-rings on the side where you can add a removable shoulder chainI split the pattern to use two different fabrics instead of just one. Here is the original bag. You can watch me make a few simple changes to the pattern and hardware to create something a little different.

Rick Rack Scarf I recently unearthed the first project I ever knit, a moth-eaten stockinette scarf. I made it over twenty years ago while I was spending a school year in rural France. My French "mother" was the town librarian and an amazing knitter. She opened her stash basket to me and walked me through every step of that crazy scarf. Since then I've made dozens of scarves, and I wonder sometimes if I've run out of fresh ideas for the next one. After all, the criteria for a scarf pattern are rather stringent: something that lies flat, that looks good on both sides and that has a soft and beautiful drape. With the holiday season upon us, I made sure to use a super special yarn for the super special people on your list, including scarf-o-phobe men! The Materials 4-5 skeins of Jade Sapphire's 8 Ply Cashmere, 100% Mongolian Cashmere. The Pattern Gauge 6 1/2 stitches = 1 inch in Rick Rack Rib Finished Size With 5 skeins: 7 inches wide and 66 inches long With 4 skeins: 7 inches wide and 53 inches long Begin Row 1:
Simple Heart-Shaped Bling Bag: Free Sewing Pattern This makes a bag measuring approximately 20cm across the widest part. You will need ● Stiff fabric – we used a glittery canvas fabric. Cutting out Using the template below, cut out two heart shapes in your fabric. On the back of each fabric heart, mark in the magnetic snap position and the correct placement for the handles. You also need to cut out 2 x small squares measuring 2.5 x 2.5cm of the same fabric you’re using for your bag (image 1). Inserting the magnetic clasp You’ll be attaching your magnetic snaps to the small squares of fabric, and then stitching these onto your main bag pieces. Now check out your magnetic snap (image 2). First, take your small squares of matching fabric and find the centre. Now, take one of the washers and place it over the mark you’ve just made. With a seam ripper or a scalpel, cut lines along the slit marks. With right side of the fabric up, take one half of the magnetic snap and insert the arms through the slits (image 4). 6. Fixing the snap to the main bag

Jeny's surprisingly stretchy bind off, Fall 2009 This bind off combines the classic simple bind off with a yarn wrap. It is thus named because it defies logic that anything so simple would be so elastic. Before you scoff, give it a try. It has a higher elasticity than Elizabeth Zimmermann’s sewn bind off, and has an advantage in that it is not sewn, and therefore easier to execute over a long length of fabric. For optimum elasticity, avoid snugging the stitches tightly after you knit or purl them. NOTES This bind off is well-suited to hats, sweater necks, and especially toe-up socks – anything that requires a lot of stretch to get into place! To process a knit stitch: Yarn-over in reverse (that is, wrap the opposite direction around the needle from the standard yarnover)... knit 1... insert left needle into yo and pull it over the stitch that was just knit. To process a purl stitch: Yarn-over (in the usual direction) purl 1... insert left needle into yo and pull it over the stitch that was just purled.
