Saturday Creations!

Anyone heard of Gussy Sews? I have been following her blog for awhile now, and I've really enjoyed reading about her journey from teaching herself how to sew to owning her own handmade business! She makes anything from cute zippered pouches to laptop bags to diaper bags, all with her "signature ruffle." (Check out her shop, too!)

Yesterday she posted a little tutorial on finger knitting, and I couldn't help but try it out! As far as I know, finger knitting is popular with elementary school girls, but I had never learned! I loved Gussy's yarn necklace so I made one for myself...
I also made a "garland" to wrap around my neck like a thin scarf...
Check out her tutorial here to learn how! Have fun!

Oh, and excuse the awkward self-taken photos...


  1. SO cute! Is that made with one of those flower knit things?

  2. Not sure what a flower knit is...but this is called finger-knitting...I literally learned in like 30 seconds how to do it!
