February Show and Tell

2 Mar

I got a lot more crafting done this month than I normally do, probably thanks to getting back into swapping.  So here’s the part of the month where I show you all the projects that I made (that I didn’t tear out or break in frustration of their being awful) and share the links for you to make your own.

Kitchen towels

These are just embellished Target towels made for a swap… nothing fancy. Just ribbon and bias tape. I might put up a tutorial later, but only if people are interested.

Leaf Cup Cuddler

Mine didn’t come out as even as it could have, but I always knit in a wonky gauge. This was also for a swap. I knit the whole thing during the Superbowl.

Dr. Seuss Pouch

Of course this is from Noodlehead… I love how her patterns turn out. For this one, I added a few bells to the keyring. I think it helps keep up the Dr. Seuss style.

Car Organizer

I made some adjustments from the original pattern. For one, I used webbing and a buckle for the attachment at the top. On the bottom, I sewed two loops and tied nylon cording to it. Since I couldn’t try the pattern out on my swap partner’s car before sending, I wanted it to be as adjustable as possible. I also sewed a backing onto the whole thing to make it a bit more sturdy.

Flannel Slippers

This pattern wins my personal gold star for the month. I’d tried making slippers before and let’s just say that it wasn’t a pretty picture. These were simple, fast, and turned out really nice. I was sad to send these out, but it helped that they were too small for my feet. I’ll definitely be using the pattern many more times.

Thanks to all those who put their patterns out there for us to use!
