How To Tuesday: My Sweet Josephine.

How To Tuesday: My Sweet Josephine.
28Jun/11 After seeing Kristin's friendship bracelet giveaway on Idle Wife, I've hauled out my old bracelet books and thread from when I was a kid. Naturally I've been furiously making all sorts of bracelets. After making six friendship bracelets in two days I decided I needed a new pattern. Following an extensive google session I found these beautiful recycled t-shirt bracelets and vowed to make them my own. And now you can too! All you need is... 2 pieces of fabric about 18 x 6 inches Scissors Pliers 2 ribbon clamps (found at Michaels) 2 jump rings 1 clasp Cut 2 pieces of fabric from your t-shirt about 18 x 6 inches. Make a loop with the first scrap and lay it over top of the second. Take that end and alternate weaving it under and over the remaining fabric lengths. Pair up the ends of fabric and wrap it snugly around your wrist. And there you have it! Related:  modeles

DIY Chainmail Necklace You’ll need: Start by separating the jump rings into two halves: 175 open and 175 closed. Thread three closed jump rings onto an open jump ring. Close the ring. Spread the three rings apart, with the rings looking exactly as shown below. The bottom ring will be the end of the necklace and the top two rings, which are spread open over the middle ring, will be where the chain mail begins. Keeping the rings in place with your forefinger and thumb, take an open jump ring and hook it through the front side of the two rings. Add 2 closed rings to the open ring and close. Spread the two rings apart in the same way as the first set of rings. Add 2 closed rings and close. To add an optional fourth row, lay the necklace flat and hook an open ring through first and second closed rings on the right side. I stopped at 4 rows but you can continue adding rows for a more bib-like necklace. Connect the two ends with a single jump ring or clasp. Fini! (top image from here, rest of images by HonestlyWTF)

Circle Zip Earbud Pouch Tutorial | Dog Under My Desk 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. This is definitely simple to make, and a little more fun than the typical rectangular zippered pouch! I can see these as the perfect gift for teenage cousins or nieces or girlfriends or even teacher gifts. Fun, quick, and cute! It doesn’t take very much fabric so you could even use scraps! UPDATE: I have completely re-written this tutorial with twice as many bright, clear photos and more detailed instructions and it is available as a pattern in my pattern shop. First, download the pattern template HERE. Cut from main fabric: 1 circle 2 half circles 1 tab Cut from lining fabric: 1 circle 2 half circles Cut from batting (or medium weight interfacing, if you prefer): 1 circle 2 half circles You will also need a 1″ wide nylon 5″ or longer zipper.

Rick Rack Rosettes A friend gave me this flower ring and necklace, when she handed them to me I thought they were porcelain–there’s a very vintage feel to them. From a distance you really can’t tell that they’re made out of rick rack! Yes, rick rack! She shared how to make them with me, and now I’m sharing with all of you readers! First, cut 2 strips of rick rack. Then twist the two pieces of rick rack together, like this. And then run a stitch down one side to hold it all together. Like so. And to make the flower, you just start from one end and roll it up. Keep rolling. Until you have this–and then tuck the little tail under and hot glue it down. You’ll notice all of the petals are closed, so to open them up you just peel them back one by one. And here it is on my finger. Awesome. (Please excuse my hands, my hand model moved to Indiana, so I’m left using what I’ve got

DIY Utility Rope Necklace A couple summers ago, we stocked up on brass washers to make friendship necklaces. A year later, hex nuts became short in supply thanks to the hex nut bracelet. Today we’re all about compression sleeves, which are conventionally used in plumbing but also make for the perfect component for these statement necklaces. You’ll need: Start by cutting the utility rope into 8 32 inch pieces. Keeping the compression sleeves together keep the ropes evenly bound and make sliding them on easier. Decide which sections to wrap and start at the center of the necklace. Continue to wrap the entire section. Allow to dry before trimming any excess cord. When all the sections have been wrapped, trim end ends. Using pliers, attach a larger jump ring to one end and a clasp to the other. And that’s it, your necklace is finished! Make a couple more and layer them on top of each other. (all images by HonestlyWTF)

Macrame - friendship-bracelets.net/macrame By Stefan. Back to Tutorials. This tutorial is supposed to teach you how to make macrame bands in different styles. Reversed half-hitches. Square knots. Hitches. Double Hitches. washer necklaces We've been having a lot of fun this past year making these adorable washer necklaces. They are pretty inexpensive to make and you can make them to match any wardrobe. Supplies:WashersScrapbook paperE6000Diamond Glaze or Crystal Effects or similar productHole punch or Exacto KnifeLeather necklaceNail File or Emory Board If you have a hole punch the same size as your washer you can punch out the paper. If you do not, the glue the washer to the backside of the paper you want and then after it dries, use the Exacto knife to cut out the washer and the center holes. Next, take a nail file and gently file the edges to smooth it out and if you have a smaller file (these can be found at scrapbook stores or craft stores) carefully file out the center hole too. Your washers should now look like this. The next step is to apply the Diamond Glaze. When the glaze dries, your new "pendants" are ready to be added to a nice leather necklace for a unique fashion accessory.
