I’m so excited about these crochet baby sandals! I’ve been wanting to make some for awhile, there are lots of cute patterns out there, but they are all so expensive, so I played around and made my own. I matched them to the ones I BOUGHT the older boys for the summer.
Your first spindle should weigh 2 to 3 ounces (or 56 to 84 grams). Many beautiful lighter-weight spindles are available, but wait before you try one because a medium-weight or heavier spindle will keep turning while you learn to draft out the fibers. Don't choose one that is too heavy, however, or you will learn why they are called drop spindles. A well-balanced spindle is a delight, so check to see how well yours spins-tie on some yarn and give it a twist.
Spinning with a Top-Whorl Drop Spindle WARNING!!! Spinning reduces stress and promotes well being. It can also be habit forming and lead to obsessive behaviors such as, but not restricted to: caressing and hoarding all fibers; dying them with food colors and things from your garden or whatever you have laying about; spinning the fluffy bits of the weeds in your fields, the cotton wad in your vitamin bottles and even the lint from your dryer!
I made a few more hand beaded Blythe dresses. I'm really enjoying playing around with bead embroidery so I thought I'd make a little tutorial for you! It is a bit time consuming, but easy to learn and a great way to sparkle up your embroidery projects!
