Row 1: Tea Towel Calendar Embroidery Kit by CuriousDoodles //Bicycle Basket Weaving Kit by JonnasCollection // Wire Crochet Pattern and Starter Kit by Yoola
Since 2005 artist, Ivano Vitali, has been creating art from up-cycled newspapers. Each page is processed into yarn without the use of dyes or glue. I love playful scale of his works, especially the sock. His knitting needles are amazing. I can't wait to see what he makes next!
Next, follow your guide and take small stitches around the curves so it doesn't look too choppy.
Circle any dates that may be of importance like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Try to have fun with it and make it your own. The possibilities are endless. If you have any pictures of your stitched up tea towel, I would love to see!
My late night print session.
This contraption, we call him Steve, is a portable oven. His job is to set the ink to 324 degrees.
Hold the needle with your dominant hand. Wrap the thread around the needle 2-3 times depending on how big you want the knot.
Now, go back down the same hole you came out.
Push the knot all the way down your needle so it is touching the fabric. Take your time and gently nudge the needle through. You can keep the knot stable with a finger nail as you pull the rest of the tail through. That's all there is to it!
I love this example of what can be created with french knots from Incy Wincy Stitches.
