Spent yesterday upcycling a pair of jeans to two potholders. One is your standard potholder but looks kind of cute because of the jeans label and the beltloop that I used for the hanger.
The other one is crochet. I thought it would be difficult to make jeans yarn but as it turns out it´s just like making T-shirt yarn. On this one I used the button and some of the waistline for the hanger.
The satisfaction of fixing and making your own things. It does require a few tools though. Here are some basic tool everyone should have at home.
Knitting is great therapy. It is actually proven that your heart rate slows down while knitting. Knitting Lovikka mittens is a good size project, you can actually finish them in a couple of days. I find it difficult to decorate with stitches so I felted some snowflakes onto mine. Pretty happy with the results.
I thought it looked very empty after taking down the christmas decorations from the door so I decided to make this welcome sign with a string of flags.
So pleased with the scarf I knitted. Easy to make, easy to wear and very versatile. See instructions below.
