Hi! The 2nd vlog and blog I made on my vacation address. I was in a village or little town, Montesquieu-Volvestre, where we often did our shopping for groceries, and on one of these trips we walked around a bit, and we passed a store where they sold all kinds of household stuff. In the window I saw several crafting supplies, and there I saw this mini weaving loom from Clover. Well, as a person that loves weaving a lot, I couldn’t resist to buy it, it just had to be added to my collection 🙂 . The next day I unpacked it at theRead More →

For a while the last video in my pin loom weaving series! I will definitely be back with more, but I’m so into crochet and knitting at the moment, and making my own designs, that I want to do that first. Well, that’s what the Craftsteacher website and YouTube channel is all about: all kinds of crafts. I hope you enjoy a lot of different crafts too, it’s so fun to do something else now and then. At the moment I’m working on a lovely honeycomb shawl. And a crochet wrap with a simple wavy pattern. I made the video’s for them, and they areRead More →

Introduction This is a sequel on the 2 previous tutorials about how to do a crochet border around your weave. You can find the first one, where I used slip stitches, here, you can find the tutorial where I used single crochets here. I use the US terminology, for the UK it’s double crochet.

This tutorial is an extension, to show you how to do 4 stitches per corner. You have 2 flavors in that, that I will show both. 2 Or 4Read More →

Introduction This tutorial is about finishing the edges of your weave with a border by doing single crochets. I’m using the US-terms here, for the UK it is called a double crochet. It’s actually the same tutorial as the tutorial with slip stitches (you can find that here), but now with doing single crochets. This is again an in depth tutorial, with lots of pictures and drawings. You can click on each picture or drawing to see a larger version. I made a video of this also, where I go into detail about whether you should do 2 or 4 stitches in the corners, andRead More →

What’s been happening Hi you all!!!! It maybe looks like there isn’t happening very much, but I’ve been working on some crochet and knitting projects, related to a yarn review. I had reasons to put part of it out on my Dutch channel with some priority, because I wanted to support my favorite yarn supplier (De Wolman). So that took some time that I couldn’t spend with you here. If you’re curious, you can go to my Dutch website (www.dehandwerkjuf.nl) or see the instructions for the crochet shawl I designed here. I didn’t translate it there yet, and it will be here on this websiteRead More →
