Special Sunday Night Edition: Tailspun Boot Topper Techinque and JazzTurtle Creation Giveaway!!!

by The SpinArtiste on April 29, 2012

Hey Everybody! 

Tonight’s special post is about a subject near and dear to my heart:  boot toppers.  I made up some boot toppers to show case the fantastic tailspun yarns of Esther Rodgers of JazzTurtle Creations.  A number of people have asked for the instructions on how to do it, so by popular demand, I’ve written instructions and created a little video to help demonstrate the technique.

Here are the written instructions:



Since I don’t typically write down my patterns, I also made you a video increase the written recipe wasn’t clear enough:



OK — it’s weird watching myself on the video, but I hope that was somewhat helpful — please forgive the production, I’m still getting used to incorporating video into the blog.

Now, onto the fab giveaways from JazzTurtle Creations — you get to pick what to enter for and your choices are either a 25% coupon off of one of Esther’s gorgeous tailspun yarns so you can make your own boot toppers OR a 30 minute one on one tutorial via Skype with Esther to learn how spin tailspun yarn.  Esther spins a LOT of tailspun yarn, so she has a ton of knowledge to share on this subject.  To enter, simply leave a comment on this post letting us know which prize you’d like to win — there will be a winner for each prize.  Please leave your comments before next Saturday night at 5 PM — we’ll be doing some video coverage from Maryland Sheel and Wool and will select the winners when we conclude our festival activities.  Oh, and extra entries for sharing on Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Just leave additional comments to let me know that you did and what you’d like to win.  Best of luck to all.  I know I would have  a heck of a time picking between the prizes!!

And, I have another goodie for you — the April Love picks are up for your viewing pleasure — you can tell I had a fun month..:-)

I hope you have had a fiber-tastic weekend.  I know fiber festival season is upon us and as I mentioned, I will be in attendance next Saturday at Maryland Sheep and Wool.  If you will be in attendance, drop me line and let me know.  I will be milling around on Saturday (chances are I will be wearing a Spin Artiste tee-shirt).  If you see me and introduce yourself, I will have a little gift for you! 

Coming up next here at Spin Artiste is the unveiling of the projects for the Secret Stash Game, Round 2 — so, check back towards the weekend for that.  Until then, Arlene
