Last night I got to have an introduction to knitting and I loved it. I think I am finally getting the hang of "casting on" but am a little stumped at the next step. Plus my baby is in the grabby stage so my practice only happens during naps. I really want to learn though, so I plan to keep at it. I have heard the crocheting is easier, but I have needles right now so I'm trying knitting first.
My next goal is to learn to use my sewing machine (if I can find all the parts that were misplaced in the move- label everything when you move). A friend made the most adorable pillowcase dresses for her daughter and her daughter's doll and now those are on my list of things to learn before my daughter outgrows matching her doll :)
I do create some fun things, even if I'm not gifted at knitting or sewing. My specialty has been felt.
These are hair clips I made for my daughter:
They were really inexpensive too. You just need felt, alligator clips, tacky glue, and embroidery floss. I cut a pattern out of cardboard, then traced it onto the felt. Then cut 2 identical shapes. Slip the top of the alligator clip between the two pieces and put a little tacky glue on to hold it, then sew the side with a blanket stitch. I have plans to make a few more clips, so I'll post a tutorial later.
What Crafty things do you do? Is there anything you want to learn?
