My sister is an alpaca farmer who has been spinning and carding her own alpaca fiber for roving and yarn for a few years now. During one of my visits she taught me how to card the alpaca fiber on her carding mashing. It was a lot of fun. Hopefully, in the near future she'll teach me how to spin. When she does I'm hoping these tutorials, video's and how-to's will be helpful.

Mardi Gras Needlework Collection Tutorial by Romona King of Northbrook Designs


I love cross-stitch and love creating pincushions.  So, I was thrilled to see that Romona King of Northbrook Designs had created a wonderful FREE .pdf tutorial for creating an adorable "Mardi Gras Needlework Collection" on her Northbrook Designs blog.

If you'd like to download Romona's tutorial please click on the picture above or CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

Here's what Romona had to say about her tutorial: This is a project that I began in 2013 and had to set aside until now. Jesters are my favourite theme, along with Pierrot’s, Clowns and Harlequins. Somewhat similar but with their own specific features. This project is comprised of 5 elements. A pincushion button, scissor fob, scissor case, ornament and a Jester hat pincushion. It was a tremendous amount of work to put this together for you and even with all the checking, mistakes can still happen. Should you find something that’s unclear or a mistake, let me know and I will make the necessary changes. Thank you and I hope if you do make this set or parts of it, that you will send me pictures to show me what you created. Enjoy, Romona

Mr. Jackson's Shoes Tutorial by Romona King of Northbrook Designs

If you like making shoes for your dolls then you'll be happy to know that Romona King of Northbrook Designs has created a wonderful FREE .pdf tutorial on creating quick and easy shoes for dolls on her Northbrook Designs blog.

If you'd like to download Romona's tutorial please click on the picture above or CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

Here's what Romona had to say about her tutorial: While I was working on Mr. Jackson, Esquire, I decided I didn’t like his feet being so bare and they weren’t really the right size for someone so distinguished. It came to me to make him some kind of shoes. They didn’t have to be pristine and posh, but something nice, comfy and befitting his status. These very simple and quick to make shoes/booties were born. Whatever fabrics and embellishments you use will make them special for your doll.

Little girls love to create clothes for their dolls - like knit hats, scarves, and mittens.  I know I did.  If you did, too then you'll be happy to know that Romona King of Northbrook Designs has created a wonderful FREE .pdf tutorial on creating "Winter Woollies" for dolls on her Northbrook Designs blog.

Here's what Romona had to say about her tutorial: This little tutorial came about while creating my winter ornament designs for Christmas 2014. Part of the design includes woollies for my little characters, and I thought there would be others who might also like to make these for their dolls. These are all made by using two basic stitches, knit and purl, so even if you are a beginning knitter, you should be able to make these very simple projects. They include, hats, scarves and leg warmers. How cute is that….. Let’s begin.

If you would like to learn how to knit hopefully these tutorials, video's and how-to's will be helpful.

Fabric Strip Mats Tutorial By Romona King of Northbrook Designs


I use hot pads, coasters, and placemats all te time so I'm always interested in tutorials showing how to create them.  If you do, too then you'll be happy to know that Romona King of Northbrook Designs has created a wonderful FREE .pdf tutorial on creating "Fabric Strip Mats" on her Northbrook Designs blog.
© 2014 by Romona King of Northbrook Designs

If you'd like to download Romona's tutorial please click on the picture above or CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

Here's what Romona had to say about her tutorial: When I was making these fabric scrap mats and getting ready to write my blog post, I thought why not write up a quick and easy tutorial for them. I‘m sure there are those of you out there who may never have done this before, and is such a great tv watching activity. The supplies are few and in fact, you can use up your scraps of fabric that are left over from all kinds of projects. I made a handful of these mats a few years ago and I’m still using them. I just toss them in the washing machine, lay them out flat to dry and back to the kitchen. Don’t worry if you see the fabric edges fray from use and washing, that doesn’t affect a thing and in fact gives them character. They are perfect for using as hot mats so you don’t damage your counter, use as mats under plant pots, coasters, placemats, great hostess gifts, the list is endless. I mainly use them on the counter top to put hot cooking pots on and when I put my tea pot on the table to avoid marking it and now, because of this tutorial I have a stack of 10 coasters. Do you know someone just starting out that needs these kinds of kitchen aids??? They last forever.
