Beaded Bracelet

Beaded Bracelet
I’m super excited to share this project with you, as it has been over two weeks in the making. I fussed around with many a mini-crochet needle and embroidery thread, and my house is now littered with bitty seed beads, to arrive at what I think is my favorite and most unique tutorial yet! Woo hoo! Materials: Embroidery thread (I used 6 stranded thread) Crochet hook size 1 (2.75mm) Seed beads Jewelry clasps Needle Scissors Directions: Note: This pattern is for a bracelet that measures 6.5″ at completion. I needed just under 16′ of embroidery thread for that length. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Or you can always go the neon route, which is clearly a Blog a la Cart fav. Admittedly, Sunny demands to wear the blue and “geen” one frequently. Photos: Ashley Weeks Cart

mustache mug tutorial A fun, easy and silly gift to give the cute men in our lives this Father's Day. First, draw a mustache on the top of your mug with a sharpie marker. As you can see mine took a couple times to get right. Second, trace around the edges of the drawn mustache with your Pebeo pen. Next, fill in the mustache with your Pebeo gel stain.

Notes from the Something: Necklace Tutorial (and a prize!) I have had a few requests to explain how I make the beaded crochet necklaces, and I have to admit I was reluctant! Because the work-to-impressiveness ratio is MINISCULE, and I don't want to reveal all my secrets ;) But it's time. Just promise me you'll still ooo and ahhh when I post one! The technique is actually super simple and straightforward. The secret is in the materials! I should note here that I am in no way an expert beader/jewelry maker.

Creative Giving For the last installment of Sugar & Cloth’s Handmade Holiday, here are a few favorites for DIY gifts. After all, even if they have everything, it still isn’t the same if it’s made by you! 1 Felt Animal Kit | Purl Soho 2 Woolen Pouches | Martha Stewart Easy DIY: Leather and Chain “Braid” Wrap Bracelet  One of the things I love the most about jewelry making is that it can be as easy–or as involved–as you want. Inspired by the many different versions of DIY wrap bracelets that are making the rounds, I set out to make my own with leftover chain and natural leather for an interesting contrast. How easy was this project? My DIY wrap bracelet took me about 10 minutes to make from start to finish!

Etched Glasses for Father's Day By Jennifer Perkins Like most red blooded men out there, my husband enjoys an ice cold beer from time to time. Last year was his first Father’s Day so I whipped up a custom 6 pack of beer for him. This year I decided to continue with the beer theme (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it), but upgraded things a bit. No one keeps empty beer bottles, but a set of customized pint glasses are forever. This is especially true when those pint glasses have pictures of your kids on them (both animal and human ones). Crafting in the Rain **I've added new notes at the bottom of the post** I collect jewelry like I collect shoes--meaning, I only have a little of each. Part of me would love to have a closet full of foot wear and a cabinet full of sparkly, chunky color.

Crochet Beaded Bracelet I've found another use for my crochet cotton thread - a beaded bracelet. It's great for summer, when you might be getting sweaty, dirty, or jumping in the pool (sea, lake, whatever), because it's washable - so you don't even have to take it off. This pattern could easily be changed to be an anklet or choker. It's a simple single crochet, so you can add stitches to make it wider and rows to make it longer.
