Friendship Ear Buds

Friendship Ear Buds
I first saw this idea on pinterest, and loved the look! Anie, of SassyBudsz, has opened an etsy shop selling friendship ear buds. Check out her shop here. SassyBudsz also has a blog and a facebook page. This craft brought me back to making friendship bracelets on warm, sunny days at family camp. All you really need is some string, and ear buds. To get started: tie the string onto the end of the cord with a knot. Step 1: Bring the string under the ear bud cord leaving a loop on the right for your hand to fit through. Step 2: Reach through the loop, grab the ball of string, and pull it through. Step 3: Pull the string tight against the cord, as you can see in the next two pictures: It's as easy as that! Here are the multi-colored Sassy Budsz that Anie sent me in the mail.

Lovely Wire Knot Ring Tutorial You can make this lovely ring (or a version of this design) yourself, using just some basic tools, wire and a lip balm! Yes, in this tutorial I am going to demonstrate that just basic beginner tools and a wire from Michael’s can go a long way! Wouldn’t this ring make a great present?? For the purpose of this tutorial I am going to be using the very basic, cheap tools that are available almost everywhere. Instead of a ring mandrel you can just use a tube of a lip balm, like I did. I chose to make my ring from a simple gold-plated wire (20 gauge) but you could also use 18-gauge wire, twisted wire (wouldn’t that be nice?) PLEASE excuse the state of my nails in these pictures.. First thing to do is to cut a piece of wire. Next, wrap your wire around the tube of your lip balm. Cut of the extra bits, if any. Now bend the wire coming from your left to aim away from the ring and then bend again to aim it slightly upwards, as shown on pictures below. Almost done! And it’s done Like this:

No-Sew Tote Bag From A Pillowcase I was inspired to make this DIY tote bag after I took a trip to the farmer's market and realized I needed a comfortable and lightweight bag to carry all my goodies. I love the way this DIY project turned out and, more importantly, there was no sewing involved! A pillowcase already has all the stitching you need to create this easy and stylish tote bag. Follow the steps below to make your very own. Materials: • King Size Pillowcase (you could also use a standard size, but the bag will be smaller. • Acrylic Paint and a Dish Sponge (if you wish to add a pattern to the bag) • Long Fabric Strip (for the strap) • Scissors • Lay the pillowcase flat with the open end facing towards you.
