Armband av smälta pärlor – Melted bead bracelet

Sätt ugnen på 200°C. Ställ upp ett antal plastpärlor (så kallade hama-pärlor / nabbipärlor, pärlplattepärlor / strykpärlor) på en plåt med bakplåtspapper. In i ugnen med dem, passa noga och efter ca 5 minuter har pärlorna smält ner och blivit platta. ——-During my search for a tutorial on how to make the perler bead bracelets I wrote about the other day, I came across this great craft tip at Tedags hos Tant Ninette. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Låt svalna och trä armband av dem. Man skulle kunna tro att det skulle stinka mycket när pärlorna smälter i ugnen men jag märkte faktiskt inte av någon lukt.

It was a really nice way to get involved in the classroom and share my favorite craft with a bunch of adorable small people. I was very fortunate that a friend who handles all the administrative aspects of the school offered her assistance on some very key steps. Here is a quick summary of the project: -I prepped enough half square triangles (HSTs) to cover two over-sized pillows from the classroom reading nook. I started with 4.5″ squares of fabric. -My friend used a permanent marker to draw two grids directly on two pieces of lightweight fusible interfacing.

-I went into the classroom and read the class a book about a quilt. -After reading the book, I placed one grid on the floor and had the kids sit around it in a circle. -Once both grids were filled completely, the kids were finished designing their patchwork and went out to play. That’s all! A few things to note: Like this: Homemade Gifts Kids Can Make: Sugar Scrub. Eat THIS: FROZEN YOGURT CHIPS.

It was a last minute 10 o'clock at night right before our vacation quick and easy dinner. As someone who is not a HUGE fan of hotdogs...these came out delicious! Step 1 - Stick the hotdogs on some kind of skewer. Here is finished spiraled hotdogs. Step 2 - Grill those suckers! Step 3 - Voila! Brownies In A Mug ∙ Recipe by Elise F. Trunks Tutorial. Today I’m going to show you how I made Tater’s trunks from the Beach Bums look.

Trunks Tutorial

They really weren’t that hard. The hardest part was figuring out the fabric. I got the print microfiber from The Fabric Fairy, and the blue is nylon taffeta from Hancock Fabrics. The mesh liner on the inside is also from Hancock Fabrics. I started with a one-piece pants pattern (if you don’t have one you can make one following the directions here). I flipped the pattern over and traced it again for the left leg, drawing a line across the top for the print fabric, making sure it would line up on the front and back crotch lines with the end of the print fabric on the right leg. And then I stopped taking pictures (sorry!)

With the exception of the mesh liner For that I traced the liners from Tater’s old trunks as a pattern, adding in an inch to the legs to make a casing. I also topstitched the seams flat with contrasting thread as I went along. Happy sewing, Related Suede Clutch Tutorial (plus free pattern)
