Finishing the hexagon blanket! Did you think this day would never come? It sometimes feels like that when you work on the same project for so many weeks! But here we are, the body of the blanket complete, perfectly rectangular, and ready for a decorative edge.
Sharing is pretty... Let’s just jump right into making this flower … Start with a piece of fabric 3 inches wide by 24 inches long.
UPDATE: This post originally ran on March 23 2011, but with summer winding down we wanted to bring it back up for some late summer inspiration! a fellow fp girl sent this to me a couple weeks back and i’ve been thinking about it ever since! i can think of a million reasons why these would be awesome… as apartment décor, as outdoor party décor, and – wouldn’t they be the best thing EVER for camping in general or at a festival?
This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.
SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 2011 | Comments: 42 Brightly colored t-shirts that are too small for my daughters now, have found new life as bracelets. For this project you will need some old t-shirts and a bunch of bangle bracelets. Try using old bangles that you already own, check thrift stores or pick up some up for a few dollars at Target, Walmart – or even the sale bins at Old Navy.
This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again. Since posting the first time, I’ve had lots of questions about these buttons which will hopefully be answered in this revised post. Equipment
To make a cargo scarf, you will need: 1/2 yard 45" wide cotton for outer layer I chose a cute banana-print cotton; any decorative or fashion fabric will do, but it should be woven (not a stretchy knit). 1/2 yard lining This is the part of the scarf that will be against your skin, so choose something warm and comfortable. Softer felts, flannels or fleeces are all good options. Decorative trims These can be lace, eyelet tape, or whatever else you prefer.
