Charming Tatted Bookmark
Charming Tatted Bookmark and Beaded Fob
Back in 2009, I participated in a bookmark exchange with the online tatting group, In Tatters. I wanted to do something unique for my partner, so I looked through many books and patterns online and found an edging in the book Tatting Patterns by the staff of WorkBasket Magazine which ultimately inspired the design of this bookmark. Many people think tatting is beautiful, but they aren’t so fond of doilies. Bookmarks are an effective way to showcase tatting and create an item for yourself or friends that will be appreciated for its beauty, strength and practicality.

White Opal Spring Brooch
White Opal Spring Brooch
When I review pictures of spring time, I see market carts filled with tulips, crocuses, daffodils, and other spring flowers. A picture of some of our own bulbs pushing through the snow inspired this design. Like our garden of purple tulips and crocuses peeking out of the snow, I decided on a Swarovski White Opal Crystal to represent the piles of snow, and the beads to represent all the colourful flowers poking through. Ah… Springtime, and everything it brings! Designed by Craig Ewing www.craigewing.ca

You Had Me at Meow…
You Had Me at Meow…
Working with over-dyed floss is always fun – the trick is to complete both legs of each stitch as you go, so the colour changes flow through the design. The direction you stitch (horizontal or vertical) can change the entire look of a piece! In this design and the one featured in our last issue (Winter 2014/15) Jo Gatenby used floss colours that remind us of the animals they represent – and how cute is that paw print fabric?

A Bed of Roses Smocked Cushion Top
A Bed of Roses Smocked Cushion Top
Welcome to a new series of smocked cushion tops! I hope that the next smocking ideas in the following seasonal cushion tops will help ignite some ideas of your own! Change the colours to match your home décor, or consider changing the size of the smocked cushion top to suit a sofa or smaller to hang on a door knob. Spring is the first in the series of four seasonal cushions offering not only variations, but three levels of difficulty on a tradition smocking design. The sample design was made using the basic or beginner smocking design which repeats the basic motif. The second design mirror images the basic motif and adds different accents with the possibility of introducing seed bead accents and back smocking. The third design utilizes a technique called ‘colour tumbling’. To do this effectively, choose two colours that are close on the colour wheel like hot pink and orange or lime green and turquoise. Follow the instructions on the graph and use three strands of floss. You, of course, get to choose the colour placement. The stitched designs are the designer choice and meant to guide you.

sewing accessories pouch
Is it a bowl? Is it a pouch? It can be both!
Ask anyone who sews or knits, there are always small, but vital tools of the trade that go missing under the couch, beneath the cushions, or they simply roll away, never to be seen again. This project aims to tidy and corral those little essentials in two ways, at home or on the go, it all depends on the finishing. Is it a bowl? Is it a pouch? It can be both!
