Well, it’s fallen to me to be the Maker of Things for my baby that Mandy is Hosting, as Mandy is too
miserable tired to make anything. Well, I’d be doing it anyways since, whenever Mandy finds something she wants that looks make-able, she looks at me and says sweetly, “Will you make it for me?” and then bats her snuffaluffagus eyelashes. Mostly I laugh at her and say no, since I’m immune to her eyelashes, but nobody says no to Poppy. So here I am, making things, and since I’m doing it, I’ll tell you how I did.
So here is a Mostly No-Sew DIY that could totally be made into a No-Sew Tutorial!
Jersey knit fabric: An old t-shirt, a new t-shirt, a scarf, I don’t care what it is, it just needs to be stretchy. I used the flat sheet from my daughters set, cuz who the f*ck uses a flat sheet?
Scissors, rotary cutter, your teeth, whatever, something to cut with.
A sewing machine or No-sew glue. I ended up using both.
**Warning, I have a super grubby, glue and oiled on cutting mat, it’s not pretty. Don’t judge me. I use it hard.
Step 1: The strips
Step 2: Making the Celtic Knot. I had no idea how to do this, so like everyone does, I googled it and found this tutorial that worked for me. It basically goes like this:
Did that make sense? If not, check out the link, if I could figure it out, you can figure it out.
Also, you can double the strips up to make a bigger knot. I think, you’ll have to try and see.
Step 3: Sew the ends
Step 4: Binding. I cut a 2″x3″ piece off a remnant of the strip I’d cut off the end.
Super easy and fast. Now, I’ll probably never make one of these again, so hopefully Poppy is a girl, but if she’s not, I have a Blueberry baby to make things for too :)
