I went 'tool shopping' by tool I min stuff I work wth - fabrics,trimmings etcetera, n came across shopping bag ropes in awesome colours(I love colour).immediately my brain bgan wrkn on wt I cld do wth 'em asi jst cld resist buying 'em. I got black,red n bright purple. Here's what I finally came up with after some hours.
U'l nid: shopping bag rope,a pair o scissors,thread,needle,n stones for beautification..

I twisted d rope around to form a shape like triquetra, held each turn wth natching black thread, and l8r sewed in some stones for some glitter and pizazz :-). I made 2 sets so one hooks over d other. USE: u tack onto ur clothes as fancy buttons (like d chinese buttons used for natives n traditional chinese attires n suits) workn on othr patterns n neckpieces also usn my new best friend- shopping bag rope:-)

TSN Nugget- sheer fabrics while being sewn may pucker or draw despite all your efforts - ds also happens wth jersey fabrics. u know doz ones d@ r light n somtyms silky? Place a piece of paper(i normly use old newspapers)underneath the fabrics and sew thru.wn u done, rip d paper off, leaving bhind perfectly strong stiches!

Ha! Knitting could be addictive o! Used to knit bags, make up purses, scarves with the two pins, head warmers etc i have 2 bags, a jamaican one like Onari's without the fringe and a black n red one. Unfortunately i have them no more. Funny to think, i have been having the urge to knit recently and came across this. Thumbs up 2 you guys.

Knitting-i am not that experienced, verty slow with it but I find croqueting easier to do.
