Tutorial: Lining crocheted potholders with old jeans

Posted: Sunday, March 4th, 2012 @ 10:08 am in Crochet, Freebie, recycle !, Sewing, Tutorial | 1 Comment »

I love crocheting potholders. They’re great instant gratification projects, and are perfect to use up small remnants of cotton yarns in all colors of the rainbow, making great gifts on top of all.   But. Sometimes I’m not patient enough to crochet twice the same pattern and make them double-thick, resulting in potential burned fingers.. […]

Old t-shirt becomes new funky nightgown

This t-shirt, in size 3 yo, used to be one of the top favorites in our household. Matryoshkas, and a pretty lime color with a glimpse of red, what’s not to love ?!!! It’s becoming really short for my second daughter though, and I tried to take it out of her drawers. Several times she […]

Finally making a bit of progress on the Guinevere SKB (aka Glampyre/Stitch Diva), joining the sides now !! I’ve just added 2 rows of increase to the instructions (making size S), it really seemed too fitted before and that’s not the kind of look I want for this one. (I sooo love the way the […]

Good, so all the festivities are over and we can now go back to normal life.. ;-) Prune’s got new mittens, and Laurent a new hat (although he may well get others, that one is far from perfect. but at least it’s a hat, and it fits this time) and I now feel like making […]
