Braided Friendship Bracelets It will surprise no one that at summer camp my favorite activity was always and without fail arts and crafts! I wasn’t great at archery or rowing, but I could make a lanyard like nobody’s business. I loved that camp craft projects were simple and fun to make, with no fussy equipment required. My summer days were happily filled with the satisfaction of gods-eyes, reed baskets and of course, friendship bracelets!

Knitting Beyond the Hebrides - Lace Symposium Tips & Tricks Lifelines: I use dental floss and probably put in fewer than I should really use, but can't knit a lace shawl without using them.

I once had to work back about a foot of edging in order to tink several rows into the shawl itself and make repairs caused by a needle that slipped out. - Janet Place a stitch marker after every pattern repeat to keep track of where you are in your pattern.
Psychogeography in fashion Psychogeography in fashion At Tent London this year, The Design Museum presented a retrospective exhibition of Kingston University’s world renowned alumni alongside a selection of work from 150 current arts based MA graduates. The influence of psychogeography as a theme was evident in the work of many of the designers – especially in the area of fashion, as shown here: Laura Michaels used 3D scanning, parametric modelling and laser cutting to create her ‘Skin Graph’ dress. Her project, in collaboration with Karl Kjelstrup-Johnson, is an exploration of the bridge between fashion and architecture, though the body contouring involved in the exercise seems to owe more to geographical mapping techniques and the individuality of human topography. Laura explains that “Like skin the essence of time is recorded, a second skin is generated as a representation of oneself.
Maybelle Square Crochet Pattern Let me tell you the story about this Maybelle Square. A couple of months ago, or even longer, this idea of turning the Maybelle flower into a crochet square started to take form in my head. I had a few goes without luck.
