No more circle skirt maths ladies, we've got an app!

*** We absolutely love making circle skirts and they are the perfect first dressmaking project or way to transform an existing dress pattern. BUT, the pesky sums involved sure do take a lot of the fun out of it all... Soooo, we thought we'd go ahead and make an app that sorts that bit out, leaving you more time to get on with the best bit - sewing! How it works 1. 2.) 3.) ...and pick whether you'd like your skirt to be mini, midi or maxi length. Warm hands (diy) Dit wordt een soort van eindeloos lang bericht en als je niet van haken houd heb je er ook niet zoveel aan, hoewel ik bedacht dat je ze ook bij mij kan bestellen, zo lekker gaat het, het haken van ja, hoe heten ze eigenlijk vingerloze handschoenen, klinkt raar, polswarmers...maar ze zitten ook om je hand.. enfin.. ik maakte ze al eens eerder, maar ik was vergeten hoe, dus ik ben gewoon gaan haken, verschillende modellen, te strak, te kort, te wijd maar uiteindelijk heb ik het gevonden. ik haakte een paar voor mijn nichtje Guusje,

Now, pick up roll and squeeze! Paper Mache Clay. Several years ago I developed a new recipe for a sculptural material I call “paper mache clay.”

Paper Mache Clay

This material is so easy to use and so easy to make that I now use it exclusively for all my paper mache sculptures. The recipe has now gone “viral” and is being used by artists all over the world. It might be a bit more accurate to call this material “home-made air-dried cellulose-reinforced polymer clay,” but that’s way too hard to say (or type!) , so for now, let’s just call it paper mache clay.

More Scary DIY Outdoor Halloween Decorations. October 9, 2012 4 comments It’s that time of year again: the season of goblins, ghouls and all other things Halloween.

More Scary DIY Outdoor Halloween Decorations

There are plenty of cute decorations you can put up, but Halloween is about being scared. Every year kids look forward not only to getting mounds of candy, but to getting scared as well. Every house is another chance to be scared and it’s a chance that only comes once a year. You may remember the ghost dresses from last year {here is another one made of chicken wire if you have some sculpting skills, and here is one made of packing tape if you’re really ambitious}. You may also remember the glowing eyes from last year which make the trees spookier. To make your porch foggy and creep the kiddos out, put a container full of dry ice and water in a jack-o-lantern. It’s possible to make an eerie grave without any dirt or sod. Make your steps drip with zombie blood with this some glowing goo. Spiders are always creepy, and are underused. Treasures & Travels. DIY Wedding Wax Paper Lanterns.

We loved these great luminaria (shown below) that Kelly Wilkinson shared on A Practical Wedding so much that we wanted to share them with you here, too!

DIY Wedding Wax Paper Lanterns

They are so budget friendly and easy to do, and create such a nice ambiance….that’s a win in our books! Kelly lays out a more detailed tutorial…if you feel like you need extra instruction I definitely recommend it. But basically, you just iron some foliage or petals (or whatever else that’s flat) between wax paper, cut them into equal panels (we just traced a template), tape the panels together using washi or scotch tape, and then we hot glued some little balsa wood sticks for added support, but you don’t have to… (The balsa wood sticks are super cheap and available at most craft stores. You could also use little twigs though if you want them to look more rustic.)
