pelote de fil avec t shirt Reader Blair liked our t-shirt yarn dishcloths, but had a major question about t-shirt yarn: "So I don’t know how when one piece of yarn ends, to begin again with a new one… Does that make sense? Someone please email me.and tell me!" Well, Blair, I'll do you one better and write a whole post about it! How do you turn t-shirts into yarn, and then attach the ends? There are a few common methods for making t-shirt yarn. This seems to be the most common method for cutting a t-shirt into yarn, and it also seems the most time-economical. When you get to the end of one piece of yarn you can attach it like this: 1. Amanda's Happy Hearth shows how you can attach yarn ends simply by stitching through the ends of the t-shirts. 2. Another way to attach ends is by just tying the ends together in a square knot (if you don’t mind the nubs in your finished project), or just twist them together when you are crocheting or knitting to create a more seamless join. 3.

Doodle Craft... Craft Cart and a Craft Room Tour! - The Country Chic Cottage I wanted to share the craft cart I added to my craft room along with a new video tour of my entire space. It has been a year since I showed the place I work everyday and I thought y’all might be interested to see the changes. You can also see more than 25 spaces below that will inspire you to have you very own space for creating the things you love. I have wanted one of these carts from Ikea for a long, long time. We recently had a store open in Memphis so I was able to make the trek to get the cart and add it to my space. I used my Silhouette to cut vinyl for the front. Each layer of the cart contains mostly things I use daily. I did reserve the bottom for incoming projects that have not been completed yet. Want to see the rest of my space?

There are over 25 great craft rooms and workspaces to tour below.

Felt Flower Scarf Tutorial Thank you for all of the sweet love on my Felt Flower Scarf! Really, my goodness, I didn't expect so many people to be interested in it. I'm happy to share this tutorial for you on how to make one of your own! Materials needed: 1/2 yard of 72" Felt or Felted Wool (this measurement is to be safe... but you'll end up with some extra here for sure.) Let's get started shall we? 1. Start by cutting your long scarf piece. Now, cut a scallop around the edge of your long scarf piece. Next, circle cutting mania. Each flower will have 6 circles. DO NOT spend the time cutting out perfect circles. Now scallop all of the circles. 2. Stack your 5 largest circles. Take your knotted needle and thread and come up through the stack of circles just off-center. Now go back down through the stack about 1/2 inch away, on the other side of center. Pull very tightly, you will see this gathers your flower up. Now make an X. Tie a few strong knots, but do not cut your thread. This is how your flower will look so far. 3.

Framed Skeleton Keys Instead of paying $99 for framed skeleton keys, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage suggests stalking secondhand stores to make these beauties at a fraction of the cost. A mere fraction of the cost. Like $7 for two instead of $200! Angie pulled it off by pairing a set of reproduction skeleton keys she found at the flea market with thrift store frames. I love how they came out! Angie was inspired by the Key Shadow Box Collection from Restoration Hardware. Check out Angie’s DIY wall art at The Country Chic Cottage.

How Joyful | Design. Tutorials. Sewing. DIY. Recipes. Crafts. A blog by Joy Kelley DIY: Wearable words When I was looking around for tutorials on making paper beads, I found some really striking "book beads" and accessories, now collected in this post. I understand (after all the browsing) that you can make really durable "beads" easily ... very little time, skill or money required. Woohoo! Who doesn't need more jewelery?

Honeybee Vintage: pillowcase challenge I found this cute pillowcase a while back and I even paid a whole dollar for it! I know..what a splurge:) I went back and forth about what to do with it. At first I was going to make an apron and oven mitt set for the Little Miss...but I decided I wanted to be selfish and make something for myself:) I started a new Bible study for moms at our I decided my bible could use a cute cover:) This could also work for any other book you want to dress up. I so would have done this with all my textbooks in college if I knew how to sew back then!

The front of the cover still looked a little it needed something. Total Price: $1.00
