Texas Freckles: Pincushion Crazy! I've gone pincushion crazy! I wanted to make another pincushion to help me create instructions on how I customized the measurements, so I did that last night. But most of my photos were really dark since my sewing room has insufficient light at night, so I made another one today so I could re-take many of the photos. I don't think I've violated any copyright by doing this, but let me state for the record that this IS NOT my pattern and I am not redistributing the pattern here. You will need to purchase your own copy of Anna Maria Horner's book Seams to Me: 24 New Reasons to Love Sewing in order to obtain the pattern for the Pin Cushion Caddy. Alright, with that out of the way, if anyone is interested, I made a pdf worksheet you can download here to customize the pattern. In addition to the supplies listed in the book and your typical sewing notions (rulers, etc.), you will need a drafting compass, some tracing paper (I used vellum) and a calculator. This is my drafting compass. Perfect!

tutorials We get a lot of emails asking how to use brushes correctly so I hope this helps you out a little! A brow brush is designed to be stiff and angled for a reason. And we use the slanted edge to shade and the tip of the edge to outline. Put those components together and a brow brush is quite frankly a thing of perfection! Here’s how to use it properly: READ MORE… Last week we explored four different ways to wear Spring’s biggest Cobalt blue trend. This method has been around for centuries!

Turning the VistaQuest VQ1005 Digital Keychain Camera into a Spy Cam Wiki Attach | Edit | Revisions Related Content Ever since I was a kid, I have been facinated with the spy world. The VistaQuest VQ1005 digital camera is perfect for modification into a spy cam. The first thing to reduce the visibility of this camera is to remove the key chain. Now, it's time to take apart the small digital camera. After pulling two-halves of the case apart, the first thing to remove is the useless viewfinder. Next, I want to eliminate the beeping sound. Therefore, I took a chance at rendering the digital camera useless. There is a pair of red and black wires under the lens on the other half of the plastic case. After doing these modifications, you will have a nice little spy camera. Comments & Discussion >> Attachments

Joki le lapin | Cliquez pour obtenir le patron de Joki en PDF Matériaux: Choisissez une peluche rase pour le museau et le ventre (ou de la microfibre). Pour les oreilles, il faut un matériau qui ne s’effiloche pas comme de la suédine, ou, si le jouet n’est pas destiné à un enfant, du daim. N’oubliez pas: Pas de longue peluche ni de granulés pour les bébés! Pour les enfants un peu plus grands, on peut enfermer les granulés dans un sac plutôt que de les mettre directement dans le corps du lapin. Vérifiez bien que les yeux de sécurité sont bien clippés (on enfonce la tige de l’extérieur, et on clippe à l’intérieur avec une petite rondelle, en poussant fortement) Dans les peluches tricotées d’aujourd’hui, le risque est que le trou de l »oeil s’aggrandisse. Instructions Imprimez et découpez le patron.
