Rope Tricks – Australian Homespun January 2018

I am over the moon excited to share with you my first project published in Australian Homespun.



This is a beautiful magazine that caters to the many among us who are “multi-craftual” and have abilities in several areas, including quilting, knitting, embroidery, soft toy making and general sewing. There is a variety of projects published every month and usually a good range of skills levels from basic to challenging. I was approached by the editorial team at Homespun many months ago and we have been working on some wonderful things for you to make.



In this issue, I get to share space with some other talented crafters, including Australian quilters Samantha Green and Anorina Morris and the ever talented Ali Phillips, who is a local girl and just the sweetest crafter around.



My project for this magazine is a set of rope bowls and baskets – all made with humble hardware store rope and lots (and lots and lots) of fabric scraps!



Each project will practice slightly different skills and variations on the basic theme. The first basket is fully scrappy, with a couple of useful handles to help you get a grip on things.



Bowl two uses a beautiful ombre style, and of course, it is made in my favourite aqua and teal colours! Just perfect for keeping handy all my beautiful bangles don’t you think?



Finally, we have the perfect crafting accessory, a tote basket with rope handles. I think it will be ideal to hold all my wool that is waiting to be turned into warm socks for my family.



The magazine contains detailed requirements, instructions, diagrams and hints for making all of these, so be sure to grab your copy today. Available at good newsagents, and also digitally on Zinio.



So tell me, what sort of crafting adventures have you been up to lately? Inquiring minds want to know!




 Happy Crafting - Cassie.
