KNITTING MITTENS

These are a pair of mittens knitted on straight needles and seamed on one side. The only material needed for these mittens is yarn (Blue Star Acrylic Cashmilon Yarn recommended), straight knitting needles/ smoothened BBQ sticks, tapestry/darning needle, place markers, stitch holder and scissors.

The steps for the following are mentioned in the description below the video.

I made these with major help from a YouTube tutorial: https://youtu.be/DQ0NhG4cL1I

These are easy to make if you have some experience knitting or even for beginners!!!

KNITTING AND RABBITS

This is a cute rabbit that I have hand- knitted using Oswal Blue Star Acrylic Cashmilon Yarn, knitting needles/ I used BBQ sticks converted into knitting needles ( by adding smoothening them and adding a bid bead at the back end so that your stitches don’t come slip out), tapestry needle and a pair of scissors. I also took help from a YouTube channel and website : Studio Knit – https://www.studioknitsf.com/ . You can visit this website for any help with knitting and also learn knitting for beginners.

  1. I made the rabbit using the instructions given on the website- https://www.studioknitsf.com/how-to-knit-a-bunny-from-a-square-for-easter/
  2. I made it’s feet by casting on 10 stitches and knitting them in a Garter stitch, along with basic decreases such as K2Tog and SSK ( Knit 2 stitches together and Slip Slip Knit techniques).
  3. I made its sweater using the instructions from the same website – https://www.studioknitsf.com/knitted-coffee-cozy-sweaters-holiday-gift-idea/ ( Instead of using it as a coffee cozy I used it as a sweater for my bunny)
  4. Then, I made a miniature scarf for it by casting on 8 stitches and knitting them in a stockinette stitch( for instructions on how to do the stockinette stitch – https://www.studioknitsf.com/knitting-lessons-stockinette-stitch/) till I got the desired length.
  5. Then I knit the bow and stitched it onto it’s head using my tapestry needle. For instructions on how to knit the bow – https://youtu.be/BtosQS2Tlqg
  6. Lastly I used my sewing needle and black sewing thread to make it’s eyes, nose and whiskers. For the teeth I used white sewing thread and sewing needle.

It is very easy to make, looks cute and you can gift it friends and family too!!!

Caravec – Cottageon A375

This is kind of a model of a car that I have designed taking inspiration from caravans and other various types of cars found nowadays. Materials used in making this are popsicle sticks, cardboard, a broken toy car/truck (or if you don’t have any way to get a broken toy car/truck you can make wheels using a paper stick/ any other stick and bottle caps AND then you can make the other parts of the cars using cardboard, glue and popsicle sticks), acrylic paint (preferably Pidilite), a cutting blade, transparent plastic sheet (optional- to make windows), Fevicol, some creative ideas and lots of patience!

Unlike I usually do with crafts, this time I’m not going to be giving steps to make this model because in this there is a lot of scope for creativity, you can make the model that you want, you can design it your own way (I will suggest you to first draw the idea in your head on a piece of paper and then start making it). Once you are done making your model, give it a nice colour (I have used metallic colours for my model). After the paint dries off, take a piece of paper and create a name for your car model as well as a company in case you want to make more creative cars and design a logo as well! I combined two words to make the name of the company ; car + avec. Avec= with in French, therefore the name becomes Caravec meaning car with. Then, I named the car Cottageon A375 after it’s design which looks like a cottage on top of pickup car and just added a few numbers and a letter for effect.

After the paint dries, your model is ready!!!
