A Better Marker Pouch I made more marker pouches this past fortnight. First, a peek into our handmade past. It was well-loved and much-used, but it was never any good, to be honest. Very hard to keep markers from falling out in transit, and spreads over too much space when open to access those markers. I know that this is practically craft blasphemy, given how utterly adored these pencil/crayon/marker/knitting-needle/crochet-hook/paintbrush/cosmetic implement rolls are in the DIY world, and I apologize in advance if I am offending any Devotees Of The Roll, but they don't work for me.
How to Knit the Double Knit Fabric Stitch NewStitchaDay music in video is from demo 2008 by (Latchxe9 Swing) / CC BY-NC-SA 2.0 This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit in the double knit fabric stitch. This is a faux rib pattern that creates a thick, squishy fabric, perfect for warm sweaters and blankets. It should not be confused with double knitting, which is a technique often associated with color work.

BEACH WRAP FAQ and a Giveaway! *PLEASE do not post the patterns/ info graphics to Pinterest :)* This post is so long overdue. Over the last year, I've received *hundreds* of emails asking questions about how to make the beach wrap. And comments. Oh, the comments. I figured it would be easiest to make an FAQ post with an info graphic and then decided to giveaway a beach wrap I made that is too small for me (it was for someone else).
♥♥♥ knitloop ♥♥♥ Ok, so jewelry isn’t exactly seasonal, but just look at how well Alyson Fox nails a transition-to-fall color palate. Day 21 - Fabric boxes I found a few pics of these sweet little fabric boxes in the latest issue of Cotton Time and thought I'd make one to sit on the table to hold Christmas nibbles etc.. At the moment though Bella and James are using it to hold textas and christmas cards! So easy to make - just sandwich two pieces of fabric (for the top and bottom) plus a piece of interfacing (to stiffen it a little) and some ribbon for the ties....stitch together and turn in the right way and then you have a sweet little box that can be untied and rolled up when you want to store it.
Drafting and Sewing Leggings // Stretch Yourself This series is sponsored by Baby Lock. For over 40 years, Baby Lock has been dedicated to the love of sewing by creating machines for sewing, embroidery, quilting and serging – all with ease-of-use, high quality and a touch of elegance. I’ve always loved sewing with knits, but recently I’ve developed an even greater obsession with it because of leggings. I’ve never had a problem finding leggings that fit (they’re all so stretchy most everyone can find the right size). Knitting Tip - Gloves Fingered Gloves The following pattern is based on gloves (Size 7) knitted in stocking stitch using Cool Wool big with number 3.5 needles. Gloves are normally knitted pretty tightly so you should use a set of needles thinner than you would normally use for this yarn (tension: 21 stitches and 30 rows = 10 x 10 cm). Apart from the thumb gusset the right and left glove are worked in the same way. For the border rib work knit one (through the back of the loop) and purl one.
How to customise & recycle your old t-shirts T-shirts have a lifespan, they don’t last forever, they stretch, they fade, they get stained, and sometimes the tees stay the same but the owner changes size, or just changes their taste. This got me thinking, “what do you do with a tee when you don’t want to wear it anymore? (and you don’t want to give them to charity for whatever reason)” I’ve got more than 200 t-shirts in my wardrobe (and out of it, and draped on chairs, and stacked in cupboards, and hanging on racks), and they don’t all fit me now, so I thought I’d hunt around and find out what they devil I could do with all those superflous tees. As it turns out, other people have this problem too, and there are loads of tutorials out there with interesting ideas for how to recycle your t-shirts into something ‘new’.
