making a french sennit tutorial Cut eight pieces of cord 12 ft long and one 6 ft long. “Middle” the 12ft length.

WANM has been in existence, I am not a crafty person. Nope, I leave the crafts to Chels and I stick to the kitchen (where disasters can easily be shoved down the garbage disposal!).

DIY: V-neck into Gathered Cowl Collar Supplies: 1/2 yard of fabric or scarf. This is an easy DIY to turn a plain v-neck into an interesting cowl collar. You can use a scarf, fabric, anything that will fit around the neckline. Before: Mine was a crew neck so I made it a vneck by cutting a v...
