I’m signed up for 5 Craftsy courses: 3 sewing and 2 others. I’m pleased to say I don’t just watch the lessons on my smartphone :).
One of the others is jewelry making and the second is Tunisian crochet. I really only signed up for the jewelry course so the Little Miss can use it, but I felt compelled to try the headpin work myself.
Other than the headpins from Walmart, all the necklace components are from old, thrifted necklaces. I put the necklace together during a Sunday when I couldn’t gather the energy to do much more than sit in a chair and watch tv (and make a necklace). I’m pleased with it and have worn it twice already.
My Tunisian Crochet spa cloth
I used some Sugar’N’Cream cotton yarn I had at home – and a size J Tunisian crochet hook my mom had – to practice the Tunisian crochet stitches I’d been watching on Craftsy. I made a few errors, but it was fun to practice. And while knitting confuses me (corralling 2 needles and the yarn and working a pattern, oh my!), but I really enjoyed the Tunisian crochet. The reverse stitch is a little tricky, but I just kept replaying the stitch movements to get it right. I finished this in a few hours.
On the sewing front, I am working on the sizing the bustier cups for the bombshell dress. The September wedding will be here before I know it! I hope to have at least the paper pattern adjustments finished this week.
