Rainbow Eyelet Scarf

I know I haven’t been around much! So much catching up to do with everyone, but first I need to share this new creation!

I decided to come and show you this amazingly gorgeous new creation of mine! I’ll bore you with a story first though!

I was walking around one of my favorite craft stores, when I found a pattern book called “How to loom knit fashionable scarves.” Now the title may throw you off a bit, scarves are ALWAYS fashionable 😉 In this book was a pattern that was just too pretty not to try! Come home, armed with this book and I picked some gorgeous rainbow yarn to start this project. This scarf is called a Westminster Eyelet Scarf, and it is reminiscent of lace work. I’m amazed at how gorgeous this turned out. I have listed it in my store, it is ready to go home with anyone who feels that need to have it (which is everyone!). You can find the scarf listed in my shop Melli’s Yarn Works on storenvy.

Now onto the pictures!IMG_1896

Duct Tape Purse!

I tried my hand at a duct tape purse! I used this Tutorial: and I was able to make this purse! I had also had enough duct tape left over to make a matching wallet and duct tape rose pen 🙂

here is the outside of the purse 🙂

and the inside of the purse is fabric! no sticky stuff!

This is going to be a gift for an awesome little girl! I’m so happy I was able to make this and it came out as nice as it did!

I Tried Something New!

I have been fascinated with the duct tape creations I keep seeing! I was always too intimidated to try, but I finally plucked up the courage, got duct tape and made a wallet! I kind of followed a tutorial, but now I know how to make a wallet! There are a few things I will do different with the next one but I am still very happy with this one 🙂

Have any of you made duct tape crafts? What did you think?
