DIY Frame & Hemp Memory Board Update

Hi! Just wanted to add an update to the DIY Frame & Hemp Photo/Memory Board tutorial.  I made a few to sell at the annual Rush City's Bountiful Boutiques.

In the original tutorial, the hemp is pretty widely spaced. Try making tighter diagonals and zig-zagging at different angles. I think the smaller spacing will add a lot to the piece!

The skies are dark and brooding. Not exactly the best lighting for craft photography! I'll be back with another tutorial as soon as the clouds clear. Waiting for the sun ...

Paper Scrap Garland!

I'm gearing up for the Rush City's Bountiful Boutiques 2015! We'll be selling crafts in 4 locations in Rush City, MN. Put it on your calendar! November 6, 7 and 8. I'll be at the Raven's Nest on Friday bagging up your craft goodies :-).


Won't be able to make it? Then follow this short tutorial and craft your own paper scrap garland!

Knitting Loom T-Shirt Rug

Yes, another t-shirt project! I found a knitting loom at the thrift store and decided to try knitting t-shirts together, not knowing how it would turn out.

Well, it turned out GREAT. The double knit creates a thick rug that you can really sink your toes into. It can also be used as a sitting mat or rolled up and used as a neck pillow.

Each rug took 16-20 t-shirts worth of t-shirt yarn.
