Needlepoint Teacher. Plastic Canvas, Plastic Canvas Patterns | 7x7ft Raccoon Mario Rug! Featured in NINTENDO POWER!!!

Hello everyone! This is the first project I've posted on Craftster (he's on my Ravelry page now). It is a 7x7ft 8-bit Raccoon Mario rug! This is my bf's birthday present He's made of 386 granny squares, each one representing 1 pixel (3.5" each) that makes up Raccoon Mario. I learned to crochet in February by watching youtube videos and recently watched another video for granny squares and got started on this project right away. I had originally thought that it would take me over 1 month to complete if I made about 10 granny squares per day. Flying through our livingroom!

We're playing Mario Kart Wii upside down here Bottom left corner complete with remaining granny squares lined up above. Box stacked with granny squares... I finished him in 15 days (approx. 120hrs put in)! The bf loves it! Making 'God's Eyes' Your Very Own. God's Eyes (also known as Ojos De Dios) are colorful and very simple to make. They work well as ornaments on trees and garlands, as accents on gift-wrapped packages, or as the gift itself. And they are a great way to use up those little bits of yarn we all accumulate because they are just too pretty to throw away. I learned to make God's Eyes when I was 10 years old during a craft class at Girl Scout Camp.

We actually used twigs we had gathered in the forest, but these days I use dowels. But, if you prefer, you can get a very primitive look using sticks that are not quite straight! You will need: - Yarns of several different colors. . - 2 dowels: 3/16" or 1/4" in diamater are a good choice for God's Eyes that will be about 6" to 10" across. 1/8" diameter dowels are perfect for tiny God's Eyes - like the small one pictured above, which is only 1" across. . - Scissors How to Make: Tie a half-hitch (or other simple knot) at the mid-point of one of the dowels. The Caron Collection Kids Project.

Our project comes from "South of the Border". The Huichol Indians of Mexico and the Aymara Indians of Bolivia weave brightly colored yarn on a simple frame of crossed sticks to make a design called "Ojo de Dios" or "Eye of God". Originally, "God's Eyes" were made to be placed on an altar so that the gods could watch over the praying people and protect them. They are now more often sold in markets, reminding us that God looks with love on people everywhere. This project is divided into 2 steps. Step 8: You can make a larger, more complicated Project with multiple "God's Eyes" by crossing 2 larger sticks ,12 inches or longer, and then crossing a short stick at the end of each long one.

Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning.

Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern.

Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry. Are you getting excited to try to do this at home as much I am? Instructions: 1. String Art Fun. String art at Math Cats.
