Woven Finger-Knitting Hula-Hoop Rug DIY

Woven Finger-Knitting Hula-Hoop Rug DIY
Here we go! I’m so excited to kick off this series of finger-knitting projects. For the first project, B proffered his largest ball of finger-knitting for us all to try weaving a rug! This project is super-fun and easy to do. The rug was made on a hula hoop loom, using an old t-shirt for the warp and a massively huge ball of finger knitting for the weft. My son’s ball started with four-finger finger-knitting(click here for a how-to) and switched mid-ball to single-finger finger-knitting. I have to say that although this project was easy for the kids to work on, I think the size of it was a bit overwhelming. My suggestion is to sit down and do a little bit of finger knitting, finish it off, ball it up and add it to a basket. I’ve been going nutty with finger-knitting. Here is the DIY for the hula hoop rug: Materials: A large ball of finger-knitting (or, this can be done in stages as you complete littler strands of finger-knitting) An old t-shirt (I used a women’s large) Scissors Voila!

Difficulté : Temps : Coût : Woven Rag Rug Thank you for all the great feedback for liking my Braided Rag Rug. I understand that not everyone has a sewing machine or/and able to sew, so I created this no-sew version for the non-sewer who like to recycle their bed sheets or de-stash their fabrics to make this feet cozy Woven Rag Rug. This tutorial doesn’t require any loom for weaving; just use a sturdy corrugated carton box from your recycle pile.

Finger Knitting How-to You know how I just wrote about how I like getting a handmade gift more than just about anything. Well, this is anything. Sitting on the couch on a lazy Sunday, knitting with my kids . . . that beats gift-getting for sure. It is a gift itself. We just sat there side-by-side, for about an hour, feeling the warmth from each other’s bodies, listening to music from my computer and basking in each others company as the sun streamed through the windows. Ahhh . . .the experience was so delightful, it was hard to peel myself away to take the photos. The two kiddos are finger-knitting, which I’ve written about before and again, but it continues to be a favorite activity. You end up with a long coil of knitting like this, that curls itself into a sort of tube. My son is using a finer and less expensive yarn, here. They really do enjoy the process. Some day, I’ll make a coiled rug from the pieces. Materials: Any yarn An eager kiddo Time: However long you want! Now, we’re going to head back again.

Good quality Oil Lamp for below? [Archive] - The WoodenBoat Forum Originally posted by Marvin Hamon: I found the Aladdin to be a very dangerous item to have around. It had to be watched constantly when it was lit because it would almost always flare up after burning for 15 or 20 minutes. I tried to get it to work correctly and followed all the instructions so I'm not sure what the problem was.Ahh...the novice aladdin user problem. There's two things that cause the problem you describe. 1. Aladdin these days supplies a wick trimmer -- basically as circular plane that sits on top of the burner and trims the wick when you rotate the trimmer. 2. The Aladdin lamp behave a bit differently, due to the excitement of the mantle by the kerosene flame. You need to turn down the wick as soon as you start to see carbon buildup (or flames) on the mantle. It also went through mantels like crazy.

Crocheted Stones Ever since I entered the blogging world and saw crocheted stones, I have wanted to make one. I think they are gorgeous. The crochet skill required just seemed far beyond my crochet abilities however, which were pretty much limited to this potholder I blogged about long ago. Seeing something so beautiful that I want to make made me anxious to put an end to the inequity. Then, I saw this tutorial by Margaret Oomen on Purl Bee. For the pattern on Purl Bee, she says you need only know how to chain, single crochet and double crochet–that’s it. When my mother’s birthday popped up on the horizon, I thought–what a perfect opportunity to finally try to make these. Margaret’s photos and tutorial were helpful and after a few fits and starts and trying to understand how the pattern worked, I got it! Of course, I have this weird thing, where I can’t stop. Well, I didn’t find any other tutorials for crochet covered stones online, other than this one, which used a chart (ack! I love the star pattern.

7 Best Cardinal Rules of Interior Designing in 2019 Art is not what you see but what you make others see. Interior designing is the art of making the best possible use of the available space. Interior designing nowadays has transformed into a full-fledged industry and professionals offer their services at expensive rates. The art of designing and decorating your room is simple and easy yet exciting and exhilarating. Interior is the natural and direct projection of the soul. The element of space is the foundation of any room; it includes walls and furniture as well as a floor. A good design is a powerful blend of comfort and innovation. Simplicity is the keynote to all true elegance. Punches of color make a room look colorful and engaging. Forms are the nonlinear shapes in the room which are required to create harmony and balance in a room. The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.

Reclaimed Plywood Ceiling and Open Shelving in a Guest Bath | Burlap & Denim On the main floor of our home we have a tiny guest bath. I have tried to spruce it up many times, even going so far at to paint it Kelly green (yikes! that lasted less than 24 hours). I decided to go the opposite of bright. I went for a feeling of weathered, worn, dull and peaceful. This is my Reclaimed Barn Wood Ceiling I painted the walls a light grey (Ralph Lauren Tudric Pewter interior eggshell paint – mixed and matched at Lowes) I wanted to something on the ceiling. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the ply wood looked when installed. The vanity that came with our house is a bit awkward. I liked the stenciling, but have always loved open shelving and the merchandising ability it gives me, even for my guest bathroom. Here is my merchandising/storage for now. Accessorizing with new mirror from Ikea, an old map print from Target, a leaf sculpture from Pier 1 and a magazine rack from Pottery Barn (all but the mirror were gathered from around my house).
