CD3WD Archives The Info Necessary To Rebuild Society
@Eric Geller: It reminds me of the OLPC project, straight from the ivory tower of MIT. It lacks a sense of priority... where the industrialized Western world thinks that so called 'third world' countries will do ok if tech is thrown at them. Imo it's an arrogant attitude, and an attitude that says that if we give them tech first, then everything else will follow. @Eric Geller: More like a monetary problem. I don't know about that. Technology can be used as a multiplier to better utilize the resources that already exist. Think of this as the lifehacker for the rest of the world.

15 DIY crafts you need to make right now It's cold, it's raining and quite frankly, it's utterly miserable outside at the moment. So stay in! But then it hits you. It's not that great inside either. You're young, so you haven't got all of that furniture and all of the little decorative trinkets that accumulate over time, and if you have, you haven't got nearly enough. Instead of spending your time sitting around moaning about the weather, why not spend your time doing something useful? Why not spend your time crafting some of these?

How to cut glass I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string. I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is. FINALLY! I want to warn you. It’s best to triple your yarn because it will burn longer! Soak it GOOD! I like to tie my yarn where I want my glass to “cut” then quickly pour polish remover over the string again. Get a big bowl with ice and water ready. VERY IMPORTANT! Slowly turn your bottle. You can’t let the flame go OUT then dunk it in the ice water. YAY!!! I reallly hope you enjoyed this tutorial because I had ALOT of requests for it! © Copyright jaderbombllc, All rights Reserved.

Créations et meubles en bois de palettes recyclées 10 Painting Tips & Tricks You Never Knew (Part Two) After sharing my paint secrets last month, I was so excited to find out how much ya'll loved them! Your enthusiasm reminded me that many of you are still learning just like I am....and I love that. I thought I would share a few more tips today, and hopefully answer a few questions that I frequently receive from readers. #1: Make a paint chip key ring I recently made my own paint chip key ring, and it's so useful! To make this, I used the paint chips from all my wall colors, a key ring, and some key tags. I cut out a small square off the paint chip, glued it to one side of the tag, and wrote the name of the paint color and room it goes in on the back of the tag. I have it in my purse and take it with me whenever I go out. *To see the paint colors we used in our house, go here. #2. When you've never painted anything before, that first time to the hardware store is a doozy. Flat paint: use for walls in living rooms, bedrooms, ceilings, or furniture #3. I love tack cloth. #4. #5. #6. #7. #8.

Вязаный коврик из футболок и остатков пряжи (яркий и необычный способ) В каждом доме найдутся старые или ненужные вещи, которые тем не менее рука не поднимается выбросить. А у рукодельниц к тому же есть еще масса остатков - обрезки тканей, маленькие моточки пряжи... Я предлагаю вам связать из всего этого яркие и оригинальные коврики. Способ, о котором я расскажу, был известен очень давно - еще моя бабушка делала такие коврики. Его особенность в том, что вяжется коврик не из самих нарезанных полосок ткани, а эти полоски обвязываются нитками. Такой коврик получается значительно легче и мягче обычного, быстрее сохнет после стирки. В моих ковриках я использовала старые футболки и остатки яркой пряжи. Итак, нарежьте футболки (мне понадобилось 3 штуки на один коврик) или обрезки тканей на полоски шириной не меньше 2 см. Крючок тоже можно взять любого размера. Сверните из ленты колечко: В это колечко провяжите столбики без накида. Вязание по кругу - вывязываем обычный плоский круг. Мы работаем только с нитью! Или вставить одну в другую:

le crochet géant! Bon, vous aviez bien compris, malgré vous peut-être, que nous sommes dans une période crochet . C’est comme ça, ça ne s’explique pas, c’est l’air du temps… Et dans la grande tendance CROCHET il y a une niche encore plus chouette: le crochet géant . (photos trouvées sur Pinterest) Pour le crochet géant , c’est bon, le sourcing est désormais accessible, chez brutalux (clique) : si vous avez envie de vous y mettre, voici quelques pistes pour commencer (avant le tapis, plus ardu): les cols rapides et graphiques, les corbeilles et les poufs… pour les corbeilles voir ce blog par exemple : En ce qui concerne les poufs, voici ce que j’ai réalisé récemment, en crochetant en même temps 3 grosses pelotes (pour ce pouf de 70cm de diamètre il faut 15 pelotes) au crochet n°20. et enfin le plus facile et le plus rapide, les cols, il suffit de 3 pelotes de laine n°6. Il faut monter 25 mailles puis crocheter un tube en mailles serrées. Vous aimerez peut-être aussi :
