How to Turn a Glove into a Chipmunk

How to Turn a Glove into a Chipmunk
While gloves and socks are made to be forever together, often they choose to divorce and spend their lives in a solitude. Of course, we have to respect their decision, but it’s hard to look at them being all lonely, laying somewhere in the backs of a drawers. Luckily, crafter and author Miyako Kanamori has a wonderful solution! With some plastic surgery you can turn your old and lonely glove into an ever happy chipmunk! In her book, Happy Gloves: Charming Softy Friends Made from Colorful Gloves, Kanamori also gives complete instructions on how to make a frog, duck, flower, car, donkey, tiger, and more!

DIY | Aventures digitales & more Secret Stash Pillow with LaFraise #DIY Salut les gens! Avec le printemps, mes Do It Yourself du Dimanche reviennent! J’ai bricolé plein de trucs, il est temps de vous les présenter <3 Je commence avec mon tant attendu DIY LaFraise, qui m’a pris un temps fou à formaliser (trop comme ci trop comme ça) mais qui finalement rend vraiment bien! Tout commence avec cet article Pimp Your Tee, où j’avais donné pas mal d’exemples d’upcycling de tee shirts. Le tee shirt reçu, petit détail auquel je n’avais encore jamais été confrontée avec mes autres essais : il s’avère que le tee est bien plus long que large, et que le motif, parfaitement adapté pour le porter sur soi, n’est pas contre pas exactement au milieu en hauteur (logique, pour être en haut sur le poitrail…). Après l’avoir observé sous toutes les coutures – pour une fois l’expression est littérale -, plié, replié, rangé, dérangé… J’ai ENFIN réussi à trouver l’idée qu’il me fallait. Presque fini! Bah voilà. Like this: J'aime chargement… Je <3.

DIY Cute Owl Ornament | Heartmade Blog My holiday spirit is a little out of control this year. It’s not even December yet + I’m almost done DIYing my gift list + so close to the official gift wrapping ceremony. Picture rolls of eco-friendly paper + jute twine + of course, my hand-painted gift tags. I’m like the anti-Grinch Who Stole Christmas. On a mission! Next on the countdown to Christmas is decorating our second Christmas tree as Mr. + Mrs. Want to come for the ride? For this fun project you’ll need black + white wool felt (for the eyes) + 2 additional wool felt colors (for the body + belly) + a fun accent fabric scrap + matching color thread + ribbon (for hanging) + stuffing + scissors + needle. This project is a little time consuming, but also incredibly relaxing to create. xo, Mayi Carles

Robe manches ballon Bonjour à tous et à toutes, Je reviens dans un court article pour vous donner de mes nouvelles et vous présenter mes dernière créations ! Ces derniers mois ont été très denses et malheureusement je n'ai pas écrit autant que j'aurais voulu sur ce blog. J'espère bien me rattraper un peu, surtout que j'ai eu quelques demandes pour des tutos. J'ai donc ajouté à ma liste de tutoriels à faire : - Les bloomers - Une robe (plutôt une robe à bretelle, ou jsk dans le langage lolita, car c'est plus simple pour démarrer). Ceci dit j'ai retrouvé dans mes archives, un tutoriel de robe que j'avais fait lors de mes débuts en couture et qui intéressera peut-être certaines d'entre vous. Pour celles et ceux ayant déjà des notions en couture et patronnage, n'hésitez pas à le modifier à votre guise.

DIY Solar Bottle Bulb If you don’t have electricity or live in a home with no windows, it’s going to be dark inside, even during a sunny day. Luckily, a bottled liter of water with some bleach can provide approximately 55-60 watts of light from the sun. This simple idea has helped many dwellers in the light-deprived slums of the Philippines. “A Liter of Light” is a sustainable lighting project by Illac Diaz which aims to bring the eco-friendly Solar Bottle Light to disprivileged communities worldwide.

American Crafts Studio Blog: Spring Bouquet What's Springtime without a beautiful bouquet of flowers? Nothing blooming in your neck of the woods yet? Create your own with AC products! Supplies: Everyday Felt Flowers (77177) - MyHouse, Stem Occasions Four (89090) - Ribbon, Petal Occasions Four (89082) - Ribbon, Petal Occasions Four (89079) - Ribbon, various buttons I used some things I had on hand to whip up this fun flower bouquet. Stopping in my kitchen, I picked up some skewer sticks and an empty pop can to pair with some bright AC buttons, ribbon, and MyHouse flowers. I threaded the buttons onto a felt House flower, making sure to keep excess string on the backside of the flower. You can place your flowers in something prettier than a pop can, but I recommend adding flour or sand in the bottom first to help keep your skewer sticks from swinging around. This little bouquet is great to set on your desk or on the bookshelf.

MaxiGlob et voici enfin le Coussin Petit Beurre ! Il mesure approximativement 38 x 45 x 12 cm. L'extérieur est en polaire - à l'intérieur, il y a du coton et de la fibre polyester. Il est lavable en machine, mais uniquement en cycle délicat et de préférence en filet. Il n'est pas déhoussable, c'est un objet de décoration. C'est une petite production confectionnée par mes soins. Les coussins sont numérotés de 1 à 74. Le coussin neuf est assez ferme, mais il devient plus moelleux à l'usage. Il coûtait 79 euros - EPUISÉ and here is the "Coussin Petit Beurre" ! Approximate size : 38 x 45 x 12 cm. The surface is made out in polar fleece - the inside is made out of cotton and polyester fibre. It is machine-washable, but only in gentle cycle and it is best to use a net bag. The cover can't be removed, it is a decoration object. This is a small handmade production which I created myself. The cushions are numbered from 1 to 74. When it's new, the cushion is pretty firm, but it will get more mellow with use.

DIY | Sew A Nursery Owl Mobile I feel so honored to be interviewed and featured in one of Malaysia’s leading English daily, The Star, at the Craftypedia column. We had a long interview, head over to read more on what they had to say about me (click here), or get today’s copy from the newsstand. I am the cover story of The Star2 with a 2 full-page story and 2 half-page tutorial on this owl mobile!!! I made this nursery owl mobile, “Forest of Owls”, to share with the readers and I am so happy that the columnist, Lee Mei Li, allowed me to share it here with you all. The original plan was to design a similar owl from the owl key chain holder that my sister and I did few years ago. Hope you love it and wish to see you start sewing it too, be it for your kids or as gifts for friend’s baby.
