Toddler’s Mittens

Happy Valentine's Day! We had a snowstorm today so I took advantage of being stuck inside and spent the day making toddler sized mittens.

Pop Up Thread Catcher

This weekend past I made a thread catcher. I had found the pattern a while ago but kept putting off making it because I didn't have an embroidery hoop.

DIY Clothing Labels

I've had this idea in my head for a while now but it has taken me a long time to get around to it. I've used iron on transfers in the past so I began to wonder if I could use them with pieces of ribbon to make labels. I tried it with a piece... Continue Reading →

Cushy Cable Hat

This past week I made a hat for my cousin. She asked me to make it for her, but she wanted it bigger than the one in the picture. So I added extra stitches in the beginning and made it longer that the pattern suggests. The link to the original free pattern is at Yarnspirations.... Continue Reading →
