Eggli Vest

_K0A9742With excitement and happiness can I tell you that my latest pattern called

Eggli Vest”

has been published and is available for you too to knit know.

As you all probably have been noticing  in all my latest patterns there is always a cable pattern somewhere knit into the design.

You guessed right if you said “she loves cables”

The Eggli Vest has also been knit with my own yarn

“KnitswissYarn”

 

5-7 skeins of  Sport Weight depends on the size you are knitting it. Yarn only sold directly through contacting me here on the blog or at  knitswiss@gmail.com

Pattern is available in several sizes.   Eggli Vest

The “Eggli Vest” has been published in the latest “A Needle Pulling Thread” magazine Issue #17. You are able to download the pattern if you can’t get the magazine by clicking on the link above.

As Carla the publisher of the magazine indicates:

“The Eggli Vest is a one of the most versatile vest in a long time, wearing it upside down will give it a different look and it’s the same vest! A little cable for interest and structure, and I-cord cast off for that final touch of class.”

Great Big Tote Bags

File 2017-08-10, 5 53 56 PMIt seems as if I can’t stop sewing these kind of bags…

Started just with two and since then it has gone to several more.  Planing to bring several of them to a retirement home for their “Tuck Shop”.  All non profit organization ….

Smiles I have more fabric to make up lots more….

Modified them a little by not adding on the zipper closer and outer pocket. Using Canvas fabric and Faux sued.

Just really wan

ted a simple bag for this project. Pattern can be found on YouTube from “Debbie Shore” really love her tutorials.

For all the outer fabric I used canvas and the lining I have several great big roles of faux suede that gives it enough of a body. Did not use any stabilizer so easy simple sewing.

I thing these bags are great for getting just a view groceries, or take your knitting along to a friend.

Bag 8 already has a home….

 

 

Volunteer Work

File 2017-05-11, 4 08 56 PMTime to do something good for the community

So off to sewing placemats and two pillows. Several of our Special Needs Adult kids are volunteering their time at a Retirement Home in Aurora.

So I thought since I can’t help on sight, I could help out too and sew up some stuff for them to sell at the TuckShop….Lots of great fabric was donated for me to use. Thanks You !

Hopefull the TuckShop will have fun selling them too. More will come soon too….Though I hope this is a good start for now. Enjoy

With this TuckShop our Special Need Adult Volunteers learn so many great things…counting money, selling items, manage to be with others, teamwork, communicating with customers, listening to others….the list goes on and not to forget having  some fun too. 

 

 

Blanket Shawl

File 2016-01-27, 3 56 34 PMYou should see how super easy it is to make these high in fashion “Blanket Shawls” Sooo fast and easy to sew up too.

You will need about 1.25meters by 1 meter of “flannel Creap Weave or any other wool fabric.

Straighten out the edges and sew with any fun Decorative stitch about 1,5 to 2 inches in from the edges. All around the four sides. Once you are done with that you can fray the edges or in my case cut fringes as fabric has a nice heavy thread count it was easier to cut fringes all around the edge about 1/4 inches wide.

So here is an afterthought I found the cut fringes left a lot of fray on my coat. SO next Blanket Shawl I will fray the edges ….one threat at a time! see picture below.

pull fringes out from all around the 4 sides as much as you like…this is way better and if they are uneven length no big deal it is “One Of A Kind”

File 2016-01-27, 5 43 24 PM

Perfect and so easy and less money than the store bought one and you can say ” Yes I sewed it myself”

You should see the woven wool fabric we have at “The Quilt Store” for this. I can show you too how easy they are to make.

Look at that print another one Ill work on next….just a so much fun.

File 2016-01-27, 5 43 47 PMSchaut wie einfach so eine “Schal Decke” ist zum Nähen. Sehr modisch im Moment zum Tragen. 

Du brauchst nur 1,25 Meter auf 1 Meter von gewobener Wool Stoff. Schau das alle Seiten gerade sind, dann von der Kannte her etwas 4 bis 6 cm nähen mit einem dekorativen Stich rings herum damit die Fransen nicht weiter einreissen. Nächstens schneide Fransen etwas jede 5mm aus einander rings herum. Oder wenn es einfacher ist lass den Stoff sich selbst zum Fransen.

Perfekt und so einfach und Billiger, nun kannst Du sagen: ” Ja, Ich nähte es selber

Fall Rag Quilt

We sew quilts together and as we all know there is always leftover fabric from the quilt we just proudly finished. So no surprise I had a view pieces of flannel left from a previous quilt I put together.

Working at The Quilt Store , I get to see new fabric coming in and believe me the colours and prints are very hard to resist.

Truly believe with Clodagh our new Owner of the store, that the supplies will be gorgeous and you too will find what you are looking for your next project.

File 2015-11-21, 12 01 11 PMSo here is what I just put together this morning. This Rag Quilt is not finished as I am looking for a border to go around the edge.

Kind of got the sewing bug yesterday while I helped out at my friends booth “Divas Quilting Studio”

at the Seasons Christmas Show 

Ursula has some amazing quilts for sale till tomorrow November 22nd. Great Christmas gifts at really good prices.

Tablecloth Coming Right Up

IMG_4436Ahhh…so today was fun at work….Wendy showed me how to sew this “Tablecloth”

And all the ladies in the “Sew Social Club” where right behind it too. You ladies are so much fun!IMG_4431

Well the original pattern really is for a baby blanket. So here I go…. once shown twice sewn….and many more to come.

IMG_4426Smile Wendy I have to stop!

In no time, I really have to say a very simple and easy to sew up project. I think it takes way longer to choose the fabric for it. But leave it to us Girls at the store “The Quilt and Yarn Store” we can help you with that dilemma too. Especially if you have thousands of meters right under our nose like I do every day at work.

Enjoy and have a great weekend.IMG_4437
