Oh we have been busy in the Jumbles and Pompoms household today. Firstly, Junior J and P has made this scarf:
Yes, really! Take a closer look:
She made it out of an old t-shirt dress. Do you want to know how? Well here's Little Miss J and P to tell you:
What you need:
. An old t-shirt or t-shirt dress
. A pair of fabric/sharp scissors
Step 1 Cut along an old t-shirt/dress side seam and cut off the sleeves so you can lay it out flat.
Step 2 Cut your t-shirt/dress into a triangle.
Step 3 Cut tassles into your fabric triangle along two sides.
Step 4 Tie the tassles together in pairs.
Step 5 ….And you’re done!
While Junior was busy tieing her tassles together I finished off my crocheted cushion with flower embellishment and here it is:
And here is a close-up of one square with its flower:
If you remember I based the cushion on Do you Mind if I Knit's beautiful sisterhood crochet blanket pattern here. Do check out her lovely blog and her very easy to follow tutorials perfect for dumbos like me. I did enjoy the crocheting experience but I have to say the sewing of the squares was a major chore for someone who is pretty hopeless at sewing. Next time I join squares together I think I'll try crocheting them together rather than sewing.
Right, my dears, that's enough creative activity for one day methinks. TTFN.
P.S. I'm going to attempt to post our creations on www.kootoyoo.com . Why don't you pop along and see what other crafty bloggers have been up to this week.
P.P.S. Also, take a look at the "At my House" post on Buttons by Lou Lou and have a nose at what other bloggers have been doing round the house this week.
