Lion Brand Yarn

  By Kids For Kids: September 9, 2005


Back 2 School! As school starts, it is the perfect time to get organized and ready for the year ahead.   The easy pencil bag gets the mess out of your backpack and puts your supplies at your fingertips!    We're also thinking ahead to the fall and winter holiday season -- gifts you make are always the best! Check out the pattern for the pink ribbon scarf and the pretty fun fur frame ... and stay tuned for more to come! 

To allow our editors and readers to focus on their studies, starting with this issue, we'll be going to once-per-month publication. If you are not a subscriber to to BK4K, click here!  Its free!


Shine On!

We recycled some of our tired old plastic barrettes into stylish hair ornaments simply by wrapping them in Lion Brand Lamé and stringing nine silver bugle beads on the lamé

Hot melt glue was used to secure the ends of the yarn.  

Woo HOO!
Use lame to make your old barettes beautiful

The fun fur picture frame is so easy to do and so very pretty! Grandparents Day (or any day!)

September 11 (the Sunday after Labor Day) is National Grandparent's day.

Make a plain frame pretty with fun fur and a few purchased decorations.   Use our easy pattern or just get some fun fur and a frame and let your imagination be your guide.

Pocket Pet of the Week

Did you have fun with the Firey Little Fox?  And are you ready for a little more challenge?

Make the calico kitten and learn intarsia knitting -- how to use introduce several different color yarns into your knitted piece.  

Our Pocket Pet projects start from the simple beginnings and teach basic knitting and crochet skills in  simple steps through a series of increasingly-challenging projects.   Each project results in a small stuffed animal.  Click to view the complete series.

Make this pink ribbon scarf


Pink Ribbon Scarf 

One of our very favorite aunts is a breast cancer survivor. 

She asked for a pink scarf to wear in October, because it is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  She told us that she was cold all the time that she was having chemotherapy, and that the best scarf would be soft and warm as well as pretty. 

Our ribbon-trimmed scarf is trimmed in soft pink satin ribbon and made of beautiful pink VelvetSpun -- the perfect yarn for a soft and luxurious scarf to give to someone who really deserves something wonderful!
