I haven’t tried them yet, but I really like them.
We’ll see, perhaps in the following year.
If you’re folding origami figures they often come undone, are collapsing or sagging.
That’s especially vexing if they were meant to be a holiday decoration.
But now I found a very good solution to avoid sagging origami figures: fold the origami figures from fusible interfacing.
I must say that I find the photos of the tutorial persuasive.
Something more to try one day ;-))
(P.S.: On the photo you can see my iron for a start, I still have to purchase fusible interfacing ;-))
I really wanted to have a hat, but with my ponytail I don’t like them.
The Calorimetry Headband was the solution and I knitted it in a very short time.
You can see it on the photo ‘in action’.
(To take a photo of myself is not as simple as I thought ;-)))
I find the Calorimetry Headband brilliant.
First: a hat is for people with long hair often difficult to wear and the headband put all those problems away.
Second: I like the short rows pattern.
And third: because it can be done in a really short time it is a very good gift for the (ok, last but one) minute.
And it can even be knitted by impatient people ;-))
I had to adapt the size and the number of stitches, because I used totally different yarn, but I’m really pleased with it ;-)
A nice method to create beautiful Christmas tree ornaments (and much more) shows this tutorial on how to make string decorated ornaments (French).
It’s very easy:
Best if you check the photos of the instruction, they explain every thing very well.
I already did the first steps:
From those images
I created this one ;-)
I just have to print the picture, to cut it, fold it, stuff it into the frame … ;-))
By the way, I ‘cut’ the pictures in stripes with the help of Splitz, a little freeware program. That was faster ;-) (Links see below)
