This bag was a Christmas present for my youngest. He desperately wanted a Nexus tablet which the whole family chipped in for :-) It is knit and then felted, with Totoro's face sewn on. In the pattern, I describe how to adapt the pattern to your specific tablet dimensions based on a felted gauge swatch. You can also use the pattern as a base for whichever personalization, you should like - it doesn't have to be Totoro, it could be cars or Star Wars or whatever your little one or yourself would like :-)
Okay, so I know this is last minute if this is going to help anyone LOL But here goes.
This year's homemade presents:
This is just the loveliest hat I've ever made <3 It's made using the beautiful Candle Flame stitch pattern, from the wonderful shawl by the same name by Dean Crane. My mum asked for a warm and slouchy hat for the cold season, and the Candle Flame came to mind - now I simply have to have one for myself :-)
I did this video to show my knitting-wise friend how I learnt to purl :-) For some reason a lot of people viewed this on youtube, so I figured I might as well post it here too if someone would happen to find it useful :-) I don't talk in the video, so no Danish to confuse the English speaking ;-) Later we found out that this purl technique is often called Finnish purl.
I accidentally bought 2 skeins of Schoppelwolle Zauberball Single Tropical Fish, because it's just the prettiest yarn ever <3 When I tried to find a worthy project for it, this simple shawl (or wrap) popped up in my head :-)
My friends breed endlessly ;-) Which means there's always a new present to knit. This one is a seamless hooded sweater with raglan sleeves and a beautiful braided cable pattern all down the front, from the top of the hood.
This beard is an essential part of a Santa costume Here you see my own Santa, who needs the beard for dressing up on Christmas and handing out all the presents
I made this aran for my nephew for Christmas and finally I have the pattern written down. The size is still only for 18 months, but I'm hoping to adjust it for other sizes some day.
