Il y a quelques temps, j’ai découvert le site prettypegs , grace à un tweet de Kriss . Je tombe en amour devant le modèle « Aldor », un joli pied tout simple, bi-colore, en forme de cilindre. Il faut dire que l’idée de ce site est géniale, remplacer les pieds de meubles Ikea qui sont, pour 95% d’entre eux, très moches et finissent très mal des meubles qui ont parfois un très chouette design (ça concerne mon canapé Karlstag notamment…). Un peu à la façon de Bemz qui vous permet de remplacer les housses.
Another thing I got up to during my week long Making Friday was to make a hanging succulent garden in my studio. It all started with the impulse buy of a magnificent Burro’s Tail from Aspen Flowers in Loop Street, and next thing I was googling macrame tutorials on the internet. Just look at how it turned out! It all came together quite quickly, after I learned how to make a really easy macrame hanger that’s not too desperately retro. Made from black cotton rope, it’s actually quite elegant, I think. Here’s a tutorial for you to make your own hanging garden.
Related to yesterday's coaster project , here's a template for making a larger modular felt trivet. No sewing or gluing required. Connect as many pieces as you like to make bigger projects, too--placemats, a runner, or sew two pieces together for a pillow cover. Download the pattern here .

It's been a weird week. Fast and slow at the same time. Both girls had a 24hr bug, not on the same day, luckily. Both are fine now. And then, I woke up with swollen and numb lips.
All too often I hear people saying "this isn't your granny's crochet" or disparagingly calling something handmade "granny" to mean that it's unstylish, ugly or fussy. I personally think this is unfair to our collective Grannies, women who made so many beautiful things that still inspire us today. I made this bed sized Granny Stripe blanket with the hope of showing that Granny Style can indeed be a thing of beauty. I think this blanket is both modern and elegant, especially with its playful color note which for me harkens back to the fun and funky crocheted blankets made by many of our grandmothers. The Granny Stripe is a crochet pattern that is made just like the iconic Granny Square, but instead of stitching around and around a center square, it is made by stitching back and forth in rows.
To make a bowl out of melted army men, it's very important to get good quality soldiers. Generic ones can sometimes turn black in the over, so make sure you test out one of your army men before beginning your bowl. Heat your oven to 300 degrees.
