Hello Everyone, I hope you have a great weekend 🙂
Today it is me, Silje Kristin, turn to inspire you with a project created with gorgeous paper from Maja Design.
In these days I am in full swing to create and arrange my Christmas presents, which I will give to friends and family. One of the things I’m making is that I knit dishcloths in different patterns that I find on my own. The first three dishcloths I knitted was in gorgeous autumn colors, so I decided to create a cover that I can have around these cloths 🙂
For this Christmas gift I have taken various paper from Maja Design collection Walking in the Forest. For me this was a natural choice, since the I knitted in autumn tones. I’ve used 3 different sheets: The Colours of Fall, Autumn in the Air and When Leaves are Falling.
What I’ve done is I’ve folded the cloths in the same size, then I cut up strips in the current pattern sheets and put them together on the back with double sided tape.
On the left side I have attached a brown button with wax thread, I have attached the thread with a bow. Atop of the bow I have attached something I do not quite know the name of.
Other details I have used is walnut, straws and brown and white flowers.
Under the flowers and the other details I have autumn leaves, which are punched out with a dies from one set of five autumn leaves.
To break the traditional fall colors I have chosen to use one Embossing powders from Stampendous called Aged Marine.
If you have dishcloths as a Christmas present to someone, you can easily spice them up this way. In due so you do not have to pack the gift in, it’s going to fit perfectly under the Christmas tree with your own creativity <3
Should any of you wonder, my cloths are knitting with needles in sizes 4, between 55-60 stitches. The cloths are knitted with cotton yarn, until they are one square.
Good luck 😉
