A Canadian traveling. Currently blogging about my adventure stories, hobbies & inspiring finds.

I can be bribed with coffee...

CUExperiments is a collective of experimental projects I've personally designed & created. Each experiment is fabricated through the inspirations of everyday living.

First sweater experiment for CUExperiments! Definitely my favourite part of making a new pattern. Love figuring it all out first hand & designing something brand new. Still a long work in progress but this is definitely working out better than anyone else’s pattern I’ve tried to learn with. Complete DIY project.

Working to finish a very special experiment inspired by my travels, Australia & letter writing today. #handmade #cuexperiments (Taken with Instagram)

Working on some finishing touches to one of my latest experiments. Can you guess the inspiration?

I have to say my costume is coming along just as well as planned. I never know since I don’t use a pattern & most times I’m short on the stock pile of fabric I have. I’ll be working on sleeves tonight. This is definitely a good personal CUExperiment challenge for me.

Shhhh!! Here’s sneak peak at some sparkly CUE Winter Mitts. Keep quiet though; I wouldn’t want to jinx an early snow now would I?

I’m working on a new experiment that I should be finishing very very soon. This is far from anything close to the end result, but the trial & error of pattern making is one of the best parts. Can’t wait to get this one posted soon! For now it’s just another WIP.

Call me optimistic.

I bought A LOT of yarn today. I’ve got lots of experiments to start working on & got a little carried away today. I honestly did already have half of this amount already (mostly).

P.S. I love how this photo makes every colour look a little off & discoloured. Keeps it all a real mystery. Dun dun dunnnn.

I finished my latest WIP & I’m so excited to be able to carry my little Baby Elephant experiment around with me in its full form.

After picking colours, making many note book sketches & lots of doodles I got to working on lots & lots of stitches. Tiny tight-knit single crochet stitches to be exact. I wanted to make a durable case since it’ll be protecting some hefty cargo, so no flimsy hook sizes or stitches were used. Averaging 3 minutes per row & at least 125 rows, this iPad Envelope is complete. 

I plan to make a custom Etsy posting eventually, but in the mean time you can contact me if you’d be interested in one of your own. Have I mentioned on tumblr that I’ve created a facebook page now?
