Fingerless Mittens Crochet Pattern

fingerless mittens crochet pattern

I can’t survive winter without a pair of fingerless mittens, I wear them all day long inside and outside the house. They keep my hands and wrists warm but fingers free to work, type and use my touch screen.

So here is a crochet pattern for the mittens you see above. Although I used handspun wool, you could substitute it with another DK weight yarn.

The mittens are worked flat, then sewn together, leaving a hole for the thumb. It’s an easy and fast project using two different stitches, riddle stitch and half double crochet.

The pattern is written in standard American/U.S. English terms.

Leather Cube Earrings – Make Sparkling Jewellery Out Of Scrap Leather

leather cube earrings

If you’ve followed me for some time, you probably know by now that I like finding ways to use up my leather scraps. Here I made leather cube earrings out of very thick leather (4-5mm) which I use for midsoles when making sandals/shoes.

They look suprisingly lovely considering what they are made off. I made various shapes like rectangles, triangles, squares and painted them in bright coulours. They are my new favourite earrings.

Cardboard Coffee Table – Create Low Cost Furniture

Ever since I made a bag out of cardboard I’m captivated by the possibilities of this versatile material. You can fold, roll , sew and sculpt it and transform it into stunning furniture. Here I made a cardboard coffee table, you can also make chairs, sofas, tables, shelves, cupboards, even beds I’ve seen.

This table is easy to make, because of its simple design. I saw a similar table many years ago, I wanted one then, but found it too expensive (although it was probably made out of paper too).

The one I’ve built now out of cardboard wasn’t expensive, just the cost of paint and varnish, how awesome is that.
