Upcoming Projects

In an effort to better organize all the projects I want to start, I thought this would be a good place to log them all. I find myself seeing a project online, researching yarn, either buying it or not buying it... and starting all over again the next day. I'm trying to keep a minimal stash because I'm too capricious to actually make what I planned and bought yarn for.

So, these are the projects rolling around in my head right now.

1. Cute Little Sequin Purse in Rowan 38. Status: Bought yarn & Sequins.
2. Paula in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk. Status: Project requires 22 balls (gasp!) of yarn, so I'm simultaneously looking for a deal and determining a substitute yarn.
3. Highgate in Jaeger (I don't even know!). Status: Bought yarn.
4. Aimee in Rowan Vintage Style. Status: Just a lot of drooling over photos online so far.
5. Backyard Leaves from Scarf Style. Status: Keep looking for the yarn I want (Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in Green), but can't find it in a store. Also thinking about substituting some Malabrigo because I love it so much.
6. A ribbed Colinette scarf a la figandplum.com. Status: After seeing Jess's project in Windfall, I fell in love with the color. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be available in Skye anymore. Grr.... so I'm deciding whether to go for Graffiti instead of Skye or just choose another color.

Sorry for the boring, pictureless post. Maybe I'll post pictures of Electra #2 tonight.

Box Bag Tutorial

A couple of you inquired whether I made this pouch based on a tutorial or pattern and if not, if I could provide one. Ask and you shall receive!

I've learned so much from tutorials out on the internets, I'm happy I can give back for once. Bear with me, though. This is my first tutorial and creating one is much tougher than I imagined. I give anyone who's created a tutorial tons of credit!

I feel obligated to preface this by admitting I'm a trial and error sewer. I make things up as I go along and test things during the sewing process to see if I'm achieving my desired results. Also, I taught myself to sew just playing around on a sewing machine, so I don't always use text book methods. Just wanted come clean before you all jump into this and so you have a little understanding if I did something in a backass way. The pattern works, which is all that matters to me!

Because of the versatility of this pattern, my instructions can be used more as guidelines. You can e…

Nursing Pad Tutorial

Thanks for all the lovely messages about Alice! We're getting into a groove around here and I've finally been able to do a little crafting. My sewing machine has finally seen some use and thanks to some sage advice from Elizabeth over at A Mingled Yarn (Thanks, Elizabeth!), I'm finally able to knit while nursing.

Speaking of nursing, after tearing through a couple of boxes of nursing pads I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own more environmentally-friendly version. I couldn't find an available pattern on the internet, so I thought I would share mine with you. There are probably better ways to construct them, but this worked for me.


Don't they look like ravioli?

What you'll need to make 12 breast pads (6 sets):
1/2 yard cotton flannel* (I used a natural color because I didn't want a wild print peeking through my shirt. You can go crazy with creativity, though)
1/4 yard cotton batting*
scissors
thread

*A note on fabric: I used cotton flannel and …
