Sunburst Granny Blanket: Getting Started

January 21, 2012
In: Crochet
This may not look very exciting, but that’s because it’s just the first step in an enormous project to make a crochet granny square blanket. I used some left over (from various crochet teddy bears and dogs) brown yarn to make a test square. First, to get an idea of the size (this is a giant 15cm X 15cm square) and second, to estimate how much yarn I will need. Brown Sunburst Granny Square Experiment I was originally inspired by this hex-bag project from future girl. I even made my own version last year. But – it’s a cold winter, and unfortunately, I can’t cuddle inside the bag… Hex Bag read more →

Drawing Kits To-Go

January 17, 2012
In: Sewing

I made these drawing kits to-go for the kids yesterday. I’m not sharing the pattern, well, because I’m planning to sell them. And the pattern. Coming soon!

Each kit is a padded suit case with hook-and-loop (Velcro) closure. There is a pocket on each side of the inside cover for paper, stickers etc. In the middle there is a zippered pocket for colors, scissors and any other equipment your child might need.

These are for younger children, sized to fit A5 size paper (or A4 folded in half). For older kids there will be larger size, to fit A4/letter paper.

Boy & girl versions:
