Kid Craft: LEGO Capes

I don't think they ever "really" get put away. So since we like LEGO's around here so much, I decided to make some accessories for them. These capes are super easy and quick to make. Here's the how-to: Cape Template Right click, copy, save, print and cut out the cape template. Cut out some felt capes with the template. Fold cape in half lengthwise and make a small slit.

Crafts From The Past: Rice Bag Tote

I'm currently fighting a horrible flu and just don't have the energy to be crafting/writing. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll be back to normal my Monday. I made this handbag out of two rice bags.

And surprisingly, nothing has really changed about it. From the fashion pictures I've seen, they're the same old bracelets I wore in grade school. So, I decided it might me nice to make an oversized version of the bracelet. Instead of using the the traditional material of embroidery thread I used cotton yarn. The yarn gives the bracelet a chunkier look and it also allows you to make them much quicker. The method I'm using to make the bracelets is the exact same way I used to make them in the 5th grade.

Cut as many pieces as you wish to use. Line up all of the yarn. Tape loop down or hook it onto something to keep the bracelet from moving while you make it.

Elle est de plus parfaitement adaptée aux activités estivales avec enfants. Pour décorer vos T-shirts (ou autres) il vous faudra : du papier de verre, des crayons à la cire (“pastels”) du genre de ceux employés par les enfants, du sopalin et un fer à repasser. Le principe est simple et très bien expliqué en image par le tuto d’Alphamom. Le fer à repasser permet d’abord de fixer la couleur, puis de faire fondre les résidus de cire qui seront absorbés par le sopalin. A vous de mettre vos T-shirts aux couleurs de l’été !
