I have been feeling slightly under the weather this week. A lack of energy, a cold, sleepy, headachy... and I got slightly frustrated about it. So many things I wanted to do.
Hi friends! Today I wanted to share a fun project with you! A couple of years ago I went through a scrap-booking craze! I know lots of people still scrapbook, but I just found that I would spend to much time agonizing over every page (I was kind of a perfectionist!)
Making a pincushion is a delicate task. Ofcourse, you don't want to make it so cute that you don't want to jab your collection of pointy things in it. On the other hand, you'll also want to make it look cool enough, otherwise you're reminded of your failed project every time you go crafting! My last pincushion suffered from the latter problem, so it was time to make a new one.
Crochet Collar Pattern *If you would prefer to print/save this pattern there is now a downloadable PDF file at the end of the pattern. Pattern written in UK terms Hook: 4mm Yarn: For Lulu's smaller collar I used Sidar Snuggly Baby Bamboo, but my yellow collar was worked in Wool Rich Heritage 4ply so feel free to experiement - If you'd like a more delicate collar try some lace or sock weight yarn with a smaller hook.
Mollie Makes är en av mina favoriter när det gäller pysselmagasin. Jag har inspirerats av tidningen tidigare och bland annat sytt en liten filthamster som present åt en av barnens kompisar. Jag köper tidningen digitalt och laddar hem den till min iPad men det går även att köpa tidningen i tryckt format, på välsorterade tidningsställen. Mönstren går att ladda ner från MollieMakes hemsida . —- Mollie Makes is one of my favorites when it comes to craft magazines. I’ve been inspired by them before.

En gång i tiden lärde jag mig göra egna rosetter av presentband. På Pinterest och i bloggvärlden har jag på sistone sett exempel på presentrosetter gjorda av både tidningspapper , filt , kartor och måttband . Det gav mig en idé. Jag som har så många fina tygband hemma, varför inte testa göra rosetter av dem?
I was inspired to make this paper flower backdrop by one of our favorite wedding websites. So simple and lovely, I can see a few other uses for this garland backdrop that goes beyond wedding. For now, it will remain a beautiful wall sculpture against our charcoal wall. Supplies I used: Prints of Flower Garland Template PDF onto following paper: PAGE 1 of template: 20 sheets of Star Dream Opal text weight paper (Paper Source) PAGE 2 of template: 5 sheets of Shimmer Gold text weight paper (Paper Source) PAGE 3 of template: 5 sheets of Sage text weight paper (Paper Source) plus: 1 roll of Honeydew Bakers Twine (The Twinery) 84 inch (7 foot) long branch + scissors, hot glue & embroidery needle Lia Lia is a daily crafter, maker, designer and DIYer.
April 19th, 2012 by Jess I love granny squares because they make it so easy to play with exciting colors. Often, my squares end up with different colored borders, so how do I choose a shade to seam them? The answer’s easy: I can use any color because I use an invisible seam! This super easy technique creates a durable seam that disappears into your crocheting.
This project, using paper roses to create a bouquet, has been on my mind since I posted the first paper rose tutorial. It is timeless and elegant and though I show it here in the white, it could easily be made in any color or even multiple colors by printing the template on a colored letter weight paper. Here are my instructions: PAPER ROSE BOUQUET You will need: 24 prints of the paper rose template, scissors and hot glue, florist wire and florist tape, ribbons for handle and bow. 1a) Print 24 rose templates onto a letter weight paper. The PDF has 3 pages (large, medium and small) so you can print 8 of each page.
UPDATE: I have completely re-written this tutorial with all new photos and better instructions and it is available as a licensed pattern in my pattern shop . The free tutorial for personal use is still available below! I use a little zippered pouch to carry around my earbuds since they are the fancy microphone ones and I don’t want them to break or get tangled. Some of you have commented that you are looking for some small, simple gift ideas.
I like to reuse and recycle. I'm hardly the greenest gal you're going to meet, but I do like to at least try to do my part. So, when Russell brought home a stack approximately 3 foot tall of cardboard "trash" from work I started to think out things I could make. I'm always in need of places to put things so I put my mind toward a storage kind of thing for my first cardboard project. Since I have no idea what these things are, or what I should call them, I'm just calling them mods since they're modular. :)
