We used the instructions in Made By Hand, although ended up altering the process slightly because we used dollar store glue and it was as terrible as you'd imagine. I bought a few meters of natural linen, cut it into rectangles and hemmed the sides, then Seb and I spent a lovely wine-filled evening stamping them. They are incredibly unevenly printed, but I love how they turned out. I wish I had photographed them before shipping more out - we had triangles, sticks, and all these great patterns that I didn't want to give away!
Highly recommended as a holiday project - other than the hemming we did the whole thing in a really fun and relaxed evening.

I knit this for my sister for her Christmas present last year (just saying: I've totally earned the right to give her clothes from my work this year. No sewing for me!) and only finally finished it this fall. It was just stockinette stitch forever and I got bored and knit it super slowly. Anyways, the pattern was great and it looks cute on her.
More Christmas presents coming soon!

Anyways, I'm on a complete crafting hiatus right now as I've given myself tendinitis in my wrist from years of bass and knitting (I need a hobby that doesn't use the same fine motor skills!), so I'm blogging about all the stuff I made before! Any tips for tendinitis welcome....

ps. Can you spot the difference in photos?! My very kind roommate agreed to help me take a photo (so I didn't only have blurry options), and instead of just clicking a couple photos on my camera, he brought in lighting, posing, backdrop, and post-processing all into consideration. Gotta love a roomie that goes all out.

All that said, I made an oversized denim top a little while ago, and it's been getting loads of use in this early fall/still warm/finally no humidity weather. Ug, can you even tell there is a breast pocket? There is...
