Not that I could ever, by any stretch of the imagination, be accused of suffering from procrastination....ahem. At least I finished a project over the weekend.
I have been muttering for a long time about the holder I was using for my circular knitting needles and decided that it was time to create a new one that wouldn't require me to stuff so many into a small space. This is what I came up with. It's three times as wide as my former one, which was made from Butterick Pattern # B5006 (you can see the picture of the original pattern HERE on the lower right side). I decided I would use the basic pattern but multiply it by three times as wide. It took some finagling but I'm happy with what I came up with.
Here's the inside....
There are several 'pages', each rubber stamped with the needle size. I ran into some difficulty with the stamping process and ended up with some 'ghosting' of the ink in places. What to do? Well, a dig into my stash unearthed a small flower stencil that, with some judicious placement, I used to cover most of it. The rest I simply added some faux stitching lines to and called it a day.
As for the procrastination...
I guess this means I need to now
get back to working on a barn!
- We watched one of those home reno shows on HGTV yesterday and they were using wooden pallets to cover a wall (not particularly attractive to my mind) which led me to wonder what else could be created with them. Have a look HERE for some great ideas!
- There's a great article HERE for making straps for different types of bags.
- HERE's a great idea for your fall decor...making pumpkins from sweater sleeves.
- There are lots of links HERE to free bag/purse/wallet patterns (three pages of them!).
