Infarrantly Creative Craft Projects and DIY Inspiration. Recycle Tutorial: Woven Rag Rug. Thank you for all the great feedback for liking my Braided Rag Rug.

Recycle Tutorial: Woven Rag Rug

I understand that not everyone has a sewing machine or/and able to sew, so I created this no-sew version for the non-sewer who like to recycle their bed sheets or de-stash their fabrics to make this feet cozy Woven Rag Rug. This tutorial doesn’t require any loom for weaving; just use a sturdy corrugated carton box from your recycle pile. I hope everyone can do their part on greening the Earth again and reduce the rubbish that loaded the landfill. By the way, I gave the braided rag rug to my mum and she loves it so much, she is going to dig more old bed sheets out from her storage, which means I will have another bunch of supply to recycle.

Tutorial: Dash mount for GPS « Quilt in Progress

Once I saw a dashboard mount for a GPS in the store, I knew I could figure out how to make something that would work. I started twice, and there may still be some revising to do for looks, but I’m pleased with the results. Materials: scrap vinyl (I used a banner)rubber non-skid fabricplastic disc from the GPScotton fabric, approximately 4″ by 12″weight (sand, rice, beans, seed, etc) Start with a circle on the scrap vinyl, approximately 5-6 inches in diameter. Fold the white cotton fabric in half and press. Fold the other edge of the cotton fabric and pin to the outside of the circle drawn earlier. The end of the fabric will overlap the start. Using a funnel, pour your choice of weighty material inside the tube. Remove the paper from the adhesive on the disc and stick it down to the vinyl in the center. Versätt. Ideas -

Design*Sponge » Blog Archive » diy project: brenna’s paper capiz shell chandelier. I love wax paper for packing lunches; i wrap sandwiches in a piece of wax paper and tie it like a present with a little cotton string. it’s so much better looking than a plastic bag. wax paper comes in handy for more things than i realized, like rolling it up to use for a funnel, or how about rubbing a piece of wax paper on the top of your shower curtain rod to cut down on that terrible screeching in the morning…problem solved. but who knew that if you iron layers of wax paper together it looks remarkably similar to a capiz shell?

This discovery brought me to today’s project: the faux capiz chandelier. hung over your dining table, or outside at an outdoor dinner party, it is an easy solution to a dramatic light fixture and will look phenomenal in either setting. i hope you enjoy making your own as much i did! -brenna CLICK HERE for the full how-to after the jump!
