Blogged under Crafty Princess Podcast by Tammy on Monday 15 December 2014 at 3:19 pm

As you can see from my sparkling jewelry and crazy eye-shadow I’m wearing in this 9th episode of my podcast, I’m getting into the holiday spirit! Join me for some craft-talking and holiday cheer in my recent episode called “An Undisclosed Location.” Below are related links and show notes.

Making Designer Seed Bead, Stone, and Crystal Jewelry

I start off with showing some tree ornaments I’ve made in the past. You can find instructions for the beaded ornament cover here.

Here is a general timeline if you want to skip around:

7 minutes: This episode’s crafting tip

9 minutes: Finished Objects

  • Sampler Scarf – I used Cascade 100% baby alpaca and size 10 knitting needles and trimmed it in a darker purple yarn (also baby alpaca) using a size G hook and single crochet stitch. The knit stitches include seed, garter, stockinette, and ribbed.
  • Mike the Monster – This is a free pattern from FreshStitchescom. You can download the pattern here. I used Knitpicks Brava yarn in the Peapod colorway and size H crochet hook.

16 minutes: Works in Progress

  • Gordon the Flamingo is a paid for pattern located here. It’s just $4.
  • Garter stitch scarf – I’m using size 10 needles and started by casting on 20 stitches. I’m using Aran weight City Tweed from Knit Picks in the Blue Blood colorway.

25 minutes: Future Project Plans

  • Flower Power amigurumi from the Craftsy “Design Your Own Monster” class.
  • Baby Kimono – This is a free pattern from Lion Brand, #L10465.

30 minutes: Personal Stuff

  • My Craftsy plans – During my 2 week holiday break from school, I’m hoping to get through at least part of Craftsy’s Circular Knit Lab, Hats 4 Ways class.

    Thanks Anita! That is one of the easiest ornaments to make too.

    I love the ladder ornament too. It looks very Victorian. Just lovely.

    I also like the new backdrop. Maybe you could leave the tree up and decorate differently throughout the year 😉
