New Pattern: Covered Tape Measures
Remember last year when I made measuring tapes for my coworkers? I kept getting requests to publish the pattern, so I finally got around to making some new ones, and this weekend I had time to photograph and finalize the pattern.
In addition to the flower, I wanted to add some other cute covers, just to make the pattern feel “worth it” so I came up with a simple owl and a pig. With a few color and embroidery changes, though, they could easily turn into cats and dogs. Even with all the scrap yarn I have, I didn’t have any black or brown (actually, that doesn’t really surprise me!) so you’ll have to use your imagination. You can also go to town with the basic cover used for the flower and make a happy face, spiral, rainbow, or whatever you like. I used DK weight yarn scraps for mine, and the free 2″ round measuring tapes I always end up with after trade shows, making this a free stashbuster!
