It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY.

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet

I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight.

Single Sock Dino Tutorial

So here is my favourite soft hearted beast for your sewing pleasure. To begin we need to gather supplies:A pair of scissorsA sock (This one is a bit thread bare and woolly and needs a new lease on life)Some red (or, really, any colour) felt2 buttons for eyesSome coloured thread for sewing together and making his faceSome filling ( I used standard fibre fill, but even scraps of fabric would do)Firstly, we need to cut the sock: In this pattern the heel of the sock becomes his nose/face/muzzle (what is appropriate for a T-Rex?) The part towards the toe of the sock is going to be the top of his head and the part towards the ankle is his body. The body part is about twice as long as the head part but don't be too worried about measurements etc. To do this I turn the tube with the heel of the sock inside out and then run a longish stitch very simply around the lip of the tube, then gather closed.
