Friendship Bracelets: Easy DIY Macrame Tutorial

This two-tone woven bracelet can be made from any kind of twine or embroidery floss and is easily removable by adding a button (or bead) closure. This fun little piece is proof that the very best crafts can be simple! Hemp Twine or Bamboo Cord (I found the 20lb weight is perfect)Buttons (You can also substitute a bead)ScissorsCraft Glue (optional) First, cut two lengths of twine about 7 feet long. This will be a little longer than you need, but it’s better to have a little too much than not quite enough! Now, measure down about 12 inches, and double up the cord. Now, secure your bracelet to your work surface. Separate your strands, leaving the two short ones in the middle, and the two longs one on the sides. Then, make a second knot with that same cord. Now, alternate to the other cord (in my case, the green one). You, too, will probably find that you can’t make just one!

Christmas presents. Vintage book travel-tech organizer. As you may have figured out from my My Life Scoop posts, I’m a bit of a nut for tech accessories, especially pocket-sized ones.

vintage book travel-tech organizer

I can’t get over how awesomely small our entertainment devices are becoming; it makes traveling with them so much easier. But one issue I keep running into is how to neatly organize everything, especially the power cords and connector cables that accompany my favorite devices. Rather than spend another plane trip rummaging through my catch-all carry-on bag searching for my headphones, bumping my head on the seat in front of me every time, I decided to make a small tech-accessory organizer using elastic ribbon and an old vintage book cover. This project can be sized up or down and customized in many different ways — the best approach is to gather all the tiny tech things you travel with and see how much there is. After that, it’s just a bit of snipping, sewing and gluing, and you’re on your way to a clean, organized carry-on. Read the full how-to after the jump! The Perfect Gift: Yarn Ball Bookmark.

The Perfect Gift: Yarn Ball Bookmark

Edited by Amy Christie. Has the weather turned cold where you live? In my neighborhood, temperatures have dropped and my instincts are to spend the day cozied up with a favorite book and favorite mug full of hot cocoa. Are you the same? I’m sure you have many fellow book worms in your neighborhood, so I thought it would be fun to create a charming little bookmark that would make a great anytime gift for anyone that needs a little fall comfort. It was actually my daughter’s clever idea to make yarn pom pom balls in the style of a bookmark.

Supplies: -yarn -scissors That’s it! *Before you start, cut an 8-10 inch piece of yarn and a 15 inch piece of yarn and set it aside. To start, hold the end of the yarn in your hand, and begin wrapping the yarn around your fingers – snug but not too tight. Cut the yarn after 90 wraps, and carefully slide it off your fingers. At this point, your yarn pom pom ball should look like the picture above. Voila!
