Tee se itse -valas

Tee se itse -valas
You can find the tutorial in English here. ETA in February 2012: Hi! Nice of you to stop by! There will eventually be an English translation of this tutorial, so please have some patience:) In the meanwhile, I'm sorry to put up this disclaimer: It's OK to link back to this post, but it is not OK to copy all the photos and the tutorial, or translate it to another another language. Posting this as your own creation is even worse. Ja mainittakoon sama myös suomeksi: valaitten ompelu omaan käyttöön tai lahjaksi on OK, mutta kaupallinen käyttö ja kopiointi on kielletty. Denimvalaan ohjeesta tuli useampikin kysely, mikä ilahdutti kovin ja kauhistutti vielä enemmän – en nimittäin tule kovin hyvin juttuun ohjeitten kanssa. Valaaseen tarvitaan laje vanhoista farkuista, pikkutiplu sinistä puuvillaa silmiä varten, täytevanua, ompelukone, lankaa ja hiukan kärsivällisyyttä. Aloitetaan leikkaamalla farkunlahkeista valaan selkäpalat (2 kpl), vatsapuoli (2 kpl), pyrstö (2 kpl) ja evät (4 kpl). Tadaa!

Stuffed Whale Made of Old Denim Jeans I came across this stuffed whale made of old denim jeans by Mevrouw Walvis and I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. She actually wrote a tutorial on how you can make you very own denim whale! I should note, however, that the tutorial is in Finnish, but Google Translate does a pretty good job at turning it into English, so check it out! The world's most awesome igloo. Pegman vs. Clippy.

DIY Solar USB Charger - Altoids I've been reading a bunch of blogs this fine Earth Day morning and have noticed that most of them are posting little write ups about green solar powered USB gadget chargers. They're all quite nice, but also quite expensive. I don't think I've seen any for less than $60, and I've not seen one that really suits my style. Instructables has quite a few guides on how to make Solar USB Chargers, including the very well done guide on how to combine a Lady Ada Minty Boost circuit with a solar + lithium ion battery. Great, but a bit expensive to make and not a very simple project for the weekend DIY person.
