I have experimented with this wristwarmers for a while and tried out several tutorials, in the end the solutions was to make a pattern my self with a thumb. This was so comfy and warmer than the others. This one is made to my little sister who is a photographer. Now she can take picture’s when it,s cold outside.
This one i made for my ant to christmas. I uses an old tablecloth from the 70’s and add some brown cordfabric. I absolutly love this combination of colours. You can find the pattern here. She have used a letherstrop, but I made buttonholes and made a made a wide strip. It dosen,t close so automaticly it is soposed too but it’s ok. Inside it have pockets for knit-recipe and needles.
Finally it is on my wall. It has been there since the 3’d, 3 days over but my little boy got 3 lego’s(I have put legotoys inside) that day complimented by a big smile. Well it took me a little more time then foreseen and i got a little supermomstressed. I got tierd of triangles but loved the fabric. The fabric is bought from this lovely store at etsy. Leftovers will be used for my next project, a table runner.
The triangelbags are made by sewing two 60 degrees triangles together and sew 1/3 up on 3 sides. Pin and sew the tops down and pull a ribbon through and woila you have a triangelbag. Just repeat it 23 times.. The tree have 3 “branches” that lay over eachother from top and down, its a little hard to see with this fabric tough.
This calender is for me too because I can look at the gorgeous fabric every day to Christmas
