How to make a cabochone embroidery
I'm a beginning designer, and sometimes I dare to publish me own patterns. Most of them will be published for free. As you know, creating a new design takes weeks, to calculate, design and knit, so this part of the site will not be updated that often, but I'll keep my best and publish at least 1 free pattern a month. Also I use turkish yarn, but I'll try to find the similar types for the europian and US yarn brands.
Seed bead types
This fall many yarn brands have represented a new type of yarn with ruffles. In our LYS it is Alize Dantela, but others have similar look such as Flamenco Yarnart or spanish Triana from Katia. Since this yarn has unusual look, many knitters ask, how to knit with Dantela, Flamenco or Triana. The yarn looks really funny - wide lasy band, fully opened it is 4 inched wide!
I've published this instruction on making simple jewelry set a long time ago on a russian handicraft society. But as an author I can use it on my sites too. Here is a little story of this jewelry set Aurora.
Marshmallow or a soap???
Tools and materials for soap making
Welcome to Hadicraft A to Z. My name is Alyona Salimova, and I'm the owner of this site. I love to crochet, knit and do a lot of beading. Also I maintain two sites related to handcrafts. One of them is dedicated to irish crochet lace, the other one rukodelie.az is a russian version of this one. You will find a lot of useful step-by-step instrustions (or as we call it in russian - master classes). Some of them are mine, some(soapmaking and scrapbooking) were bought from more qualified crafters in particular type of a handicraft. The site will also include a gallery and a blog system, where you can keep you portfolio and notes
Hope that you enjoy these lessons.
