Hi everyone, Christine here today. I’ve recently discovered crochet and I’m amazed by all the amazing yarn colors available. My mind is buzzing with more crochet projects. I realized I needed some yarn swatches to arrange my colors so I decided to make little wallets containing my leftover pieces of yarn. I headed to my craft desk and my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® adhesives.
Yarn Swatch Wallet Step Outs
You can use a die to create pockets/wallets and trim down the edges or recreate by folding a piece of card and cutting a line for the closure insert.
Next, die cut a heart aperture into the cover, you could also use a punch for this step.
Put the wallet to one side and then die cut three small rectangles. Layer and affix these on top of each other to create a rigid rectangle. MyStik® Permanent Strips Dispenser is perfect for this. This dispenser has a unique fold-away design, ideal for traveling to crops and bonus: you can personalize the dispenser too.
Onto the front and back of the rectangles affix Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch.
Remove the backing and wrap yarn around, it sticks very firmly which is perfect.
Continue this for all the colors you need.
Inside your wallet affix a rectangle with yarn color name with Crafty Power Tape. I typed these names and printed on my computer and die cut the rectangles. You could hand write if you prefer.
Again, using the super strong Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch affix the yarn swatch inside the wallet.
The finished swatches. Easily filed away in a little box and ready to use for designing my next project.
I think making these wallets will be as addictive as crochet!
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the great products on the website.
