I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

Ready to launch

3 ... 2 ... 1 ... BLAST OFF! The latest Made by Telaine merchandise is rocketing to this weekend's craft show at Sputnikfest. After several weeks of knitting, stitching and punching — let's check out the out-of-this-world artifacts!

Glow in the dark!

Wacky wristbands and hairbands made with glow-in-the-dark yarn are a Sputnikfest special. My mother-in-law Diana helped find some awesome alien buttons to embellish these stretchy loom-knits.

Glow in the dark!

Check out the glow! They can be a fun festival souvenir now and Halloween accessory later. And speaking of the costumed holiday, the dino hats are finally back!

Dino hats!

The purple and jade are baby-size, which makes them a quick costume for your little one. The yellow dino is just a little bigger for a toddler. They are fun to wear even after Halloween. I'm accepting custom orders for any size.

New t-pillows

What would a good launch be without a soft-landing? I cut up some no-longer-loved shirts to make t-pillows. They all come with a removable plush pillow for easy cleaning. Do you have a favorite tee that is no longer wearable? Bring it to the booth or talk to me on Etsy — I can give it a second life!

Business cards punched

My business cards boast a second use, too. With my friend Erin's help, I punched some holes and hammered some eyelets into these very resilient cards. I really had to hammer hard (or ask my husband) to get these holes made! But now they double as product tags with price info on the back. I'm very happy with how they turned out!

The Artta this World craft fair is at Sputnikfest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rahr-West Art Museum in Manitowoc, Wis. I'll be setting up shop in Booth 7. If you're not local, don't fret. Items much like these will be heading to the online shop, too!


  1. Are the purple and jade still available? How much are they? I would love them for my twin boys- can you e-mail me at tagsale1221@yahoo.com
