Vicky Martín Berrocal. The Visual Discovery Tool. Moma Store Gold Leather Bag. Making Flower Pom-poms with a DIY Pom-pom maker - Mr Printables Blog. How to make animal pom-poms - Mr Printables Blog. After making those flower pompoms, I couldn’t help making more. Maybe it’s called procrastination. I have hundreds of other things on my to-do list, but then this week I thought, well, hey let’s just make more pompoms! Among many other ideas, I went for having a go at animal pompoms. It’s just that kids love animals most and that’s what matters here on Mr P! They are a little more difficult to make if you’ve never tried making pompoms, so in that case, start with the flower pompoms here then you’ll be able to easily move on to more complex designs. Basically the method is the same.

Start with the nose and mouth in the middle, wrap around the surrounding face color on top of this, a little wrapping floating in the middle for the eyes then finishing with more face color. Place a pencil (or your finger) on one end and wrap extra yarn around it a bit like this. I had a comment from a reader who thought my pompoms looked perfect and hers weren’t.

The Saturdaily. Azilal – 062. Embroidery 101: Satin Stitch Nepali Tiger Pillow. Three years I ago I took the adventure of a lifetime traveling to India and Nepal. We rode trains through the foggiest picturesque landscape, drank real chai tea from unfired clay cups, took a boat ride on the river Ganges, witnessed a holy dip in Allahabad, visited temples where cunning monkeys stole sweet offerings, and soaked in the traditional handcrafts. I really could go on and on reminiscing. In Nepal, on the steps to a temple, I met a man selling punch needle embroidery, thread and patterns. Of course I spent some time with him and purchased a few sets of hand pin-punched embroidery patterns on vellum paper.

I could not be happier to be able to share the tiniest sliver of this memorable trip with you with this project using a reproduction of a Nepali embroidery pattern. In the past two posts we’ve learned the running and backstitch, which are great for outlining and text. The full how-to continues after the jump… Materials Instructions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Since I posted my crochet Sea Creatures on Flickr in November, 2006, many people have asked me how I make the plastic bag yarn. So here is a How to lesson. There are many different techniques, but I found this one worked best for me. Be warned..... it's very time consuming, but strangely cathartic. ** I have added an alternative technique tutorial at the end.

Method 2: How to make a fabric coil bowl or basket | The Red Thread. Add a pop of neon to your desk or shelf with these woven coil bowls.

They’d also make a lovely handmade gift, perhaps a small bowl with a few rolls of washi tape inside? … it’s not long until Christmas! Click on the ‘read more’ link below for the full instructions. You’ll need: Long strips of fabric – anything will work: I used knits, both cotton and acrylic. The pink neon was dirt cheap yardage in a bargain bin and the grey strips are Zpagetti yarn. Cord – the neon orange is ‘Brickie’s Line’ from the hardware store ($5 for 100 metres) – or you can use more fabric or yarn like I did on the pink bowls. A large yarn needle with a big eye. Scissors. If you are cutting up fabric (T shirts, sheets, fabric yardage, etc) the thicker you cut it the chunkier and quicker your bowl will be. The instructional photos are for the grey bowl with neon orange stitching, so I’ll refer to those colours from now on. I used three pieces of grey fabric yarn together to get a good thickness.

Tutorial | High waisted knit shorts. Warning: heavy text post. My knit shorts have gotten a lot of attention on the internets and in real life, for that matter - and I have received so many requests regarding them I can't even wrap my head around it. Many of you asked me if I could make you a pair, others were ready to pay me a lot of money to knit a pair for them, some asked for a recipe and a couple of you guys wanted to know where I bought it: because you didn't believe I made them.

Honestly, I just got lucky. I was aiming for a kind of voluminous skirt; but somewhere in the process I decided to make shorts instead. I wish I could make a pair for every single one of you guys, but I really can't do that. So I'm doing the next best thing. I've never made a tutorial before, so please be gentle with me. I only use approximate measurements, mostly because if it doesn’t fit – I make it fit.

Ingredients: Approximately 3 balls of yarn. The best tips I have is to use your own creativity to decide what you prefer. Good luck! DIY Fashion: Paper Bag DIY. No fashionista can be defined like that if she hasn't starved herself to save up the money to buy a bag (or at least to be written in a waiting list).Bags we love are made of the same material dreams are made of :have you ever a touched a dream? I have never got in touch with something so expensive.What is a material more down to earth present in our life we can relate with? Nessuna fashionista può definirsi tale se non ha risparmiato anche sul cibo per mettere da parte i soldi necessari per comprare una borsa (o almeno per essere iscritta in una lista d'attesa).Le borse che adoriamo sono fatte della stessa materia di cui sono fatti i sogni:avete mai toccato un sogno?

Recently I blogged about DIY ideas using pearls, and I was inspired to embellish a shirt collar with some pearl beads I had in my stash.

I’ve seen several versions of this DIY, some with many additional elements, but I wanted to keep it pretty simple. I used two slightly different colors of pearl beads, plus some metallic silver beads, to create a pearl gradient. Images all found on Pinterest. Materials: Shirt to embellish Pearl beads Thread Needle Scissors Methods: 1. 2. 3. 4. Block 13: Lattice smocking – Textured quilt sampler « TeresaDownUnder. Lattice closeup This block requires hand sewing. Block type: log cabin Block size: 11 inches Colour scheme: reds and neutrals Texture/fabric manipulation: lattice smocking Quilt size: The finished quilt is 52 ½ x 52 ½. Needs: one 7 in x 7 in rectangle in red tones for the textured centre squaretwo 5 in x 3 1/2 in rectangles and two 11 in x 3 1/2 in rectangles for the border Making the lattice Draw a 7 in x 7 in grid on a piece of fabric and mark it as per photo.

Diagram Sew the lattice in groups of 4, i.e. 1 – 2, 3 – 4, 5 – 6 and 7 – 8. Arrow = pick up both dots together and stitch together and then do another stitch so the stitch doesn’t open Red dotted line = pick up dot without joining with previous dot, ie carry the thread to the next dot When moving from one pair of stitches, e.g. moving from 2 to 3, or from 5 to 6, always make a double stitch on the first dot, i.e. on 1, 3, 5, etc. and then make another double stitch after you join a pair, e.g. 1 and 2, 3 and 4, etc. This is how it goes.

The rug really was simple to make, just time-consuming. You can see the rug mat in this image and about how often I skipped holes. Ready to make one yourself? Rag Rug Tutorial Supplies: Here’s an image-tutorial on how to make a rag rug:

Summer Garden Granny Square. I love making Granny Squares. There's just something about creating little stacks of them that is hugely satisfying. They are versatile, and easy for beginners to learn because the basic stitches and method of working "in the round" are simple to get to grips with. It's how I first learnt to crochet 18 months ago, and I still get a huge amount of pleasure from making granny squares. This particular square, which I am calling my Summer Garden Granny Square, is my own pattern. It came about after I had an idea of making squares for a blanket, which when all assembled together would resemble a garden blooming with summer flowers. I couldn't find a pattern which was simple enough to make, or produced the effect I was after, so I experimented and created my own. And to be perfectly honest with you all, I am thrilled with how it turned out.

So :: For my blanket squares (pictured above) I'm using a DK weight pure wool, with a 4mm hook. Stitches used are as follows: To Start :: I know. Granny Square Blanket @ In the Wabe. I started crocheting a few years ago with one goal in mind: to make a granny square blanket. Success! I started this baby in January and finally finished eight months later. I realize you can’t gauge its size by the photos, but the blanket is in total over 165 squares. It’s big and heavy, but the little holes keep it from overheating. I used Attic 24′s Summer Garden Granny Square pattern–I really like the circular centers.
