7x7ft Raccoon Mario Rug! Featured in NINTENDO POWER!!!

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. 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...

Making 'God's Eyes' Your Very Own

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. 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. Embroidery. Machine Embroidery Designs at Embroidery Library!

Do-it-Yourself DIY String Wedding Lanterns Yarn Chandeliers

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. You can see all the details on Jessica’s blog. 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.
