Sewing 101: zippered throw pillows
Next up in our learn-to-sew series: throw pillows! Throw pillows are another fantastic way to incorporate cute textiles and DIY flair into your home without a great investment of time or money. If you’ve ever gone into a fabric store and wanted to buy everything because it’s just all so gorgeous, then pillows are a great way to put those fabrics to work in your decor. Bold or loud prints that would be too much used in large scale (like in curtains) can be just right for a little pillow pop on a sofa or bed. I’m going to show you how to make a zippered pillow cover, which is easier than it sounds, I promise. The best part? CLICK HERE for the full zippered throw pillow how-to after the jump!

patrons Archives Difficile car il faut être très précis dans les mesures. La méthode pour créer un patron ex nihilo est expliquée ici. Un patron de pantalon classique comporte 3 pièces : - le dos - le devant - la ceinture Pour créer votre patron de base, il faut partir d'un pantalon qui vous va bien. Matériel nécessaire : - une grande feuille de papier souple : du papier de soie ou, à défaut, du papier journal Le dos 1/ placer les axes vertical et horizontal Mettre le pantalon à l'envers. - Sur le papier, tracer les deux axes DM et NO en les faisant se couper en P. Il s'agit maintenant de mesurer la distance à ces deux axes de plusieurs points situées sur les coutures et sur les pinces (autrement dit : leurs coordonnées). 2/ la pince du dos - Sur le pantalon : mesurer la distance aux deux axes de la pointe (Q) et du haut de la pince (R). 4/ couture du dos Pour l'arrondi de la couture du dos, on peut procéder de la même façon que précédemment. Découper le patron sans déplier la pince.

haylie’s spool hooks For years I have collected wooden thread spools, picking them up here and there, mostly at yard sales.You can’t usually use the actual thread, if there is any left, because it has become brittle with age. So, aside from displaying them in glass jars I wanted to put them to good use. I have chosen to use a handful of spools from my collection as hooks. It is a really simple project with a fun and colorful outcome. CLICK HERE for the full how-to after the jump! Materials & Tools: -wooden thread spools (with or without thread) -drywall screws to size- be sure to take your smallest and largest spool to hardware store to size for appropriate screws. Step 1:For spools with thread, you want to tack down the loose end of the thread, so you don’t end up with a tangled mess. Step 2: Choose a piece of paper that best fits the space on the wall you want to fill with your spool hooks. Step 7: Now, you have a place to hang your necklaces, ribbons, or neckties.

At 17” wide and 10” deep, it’s large enough to serve as floor seating or a foot stool. (And if you have pets, I have a feeling they may want to make this their new favorite spot!)

Psychose Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La psychose (du mot grec ψυχή, psyche, « esprit, âme », et -ωσις, -osis, « anomalie ») est un terme générique psychiatrique désignant un trouble, ou une condition anormale, de l'esprit évoquant le plus souvent une « perte de contact avec la réalité. » Les individus souffrant de psychose sont nommés des « psychotiques ». La psychose qualifie les formes sévères d'un trouble psychiatrique durant lesquelles peuvent survenir délires, hallucinations, violences irrépressibles ou encore une perception distordue de la réalité.[2]. Le terme de « psychose » a une utilisation très variée et peut désigner toute expérience délirante ou aberrante exprimée dans les mécanismes complexes et catatoniques de la schizophrénie et du trouble bipolaire de type I[3],[4]. En outre, une grande variété de maladies liées au système nerveux central, causées par des substances étrangères ou des problèmes physiologiques, peuvent produire des symptômes de psychose.
