Make a braided t-shirt rug

Select a few old t-shirts from your closet, a thrift store, or your Aunt Marcy's NASCAR t-shirt collection. I used 5.5 t-shirts to make a rug that is approximately 18" in diameter, but if you have more time and patience than I do or if you want a bigger rug, you could use more shirts. Next step is to prepare the t-shirts by cutting them and turn them into yarn. I used a method that I found on YouTube but I took some photos of this step for here. You will want to flatten the shirt out in front of you, but face it sideways so that one sleeve points toward you and the other points away from you. You should end up with a really long strip of fabric from your t-shirt. Related:  Odds and EndsCraftscrafts

So here is my jar. This is a real thick mixture. Start by pouring some of the coffee infused oil right into the strainer. container. Save the grinds we are not through yet. This would probably be considered as strong as an expresso pure liquid coffee. In the photo above you can see a container in the upper left this is where I collected the strained oil. You can see in the above photo there is four things going on.

Antonio Damasio : Oui, il y a une biologie des sentiments Longtemps, la science a entretenu une séparation entre le corps et l'esprit, estimant notamment que les sentiments n'avaient rien à faire avec la biologie. C'était presque une question taboue. En effet. Pour des raisons multiples, religieuses surtout, on a cherché à cultiver cette distinction, et à préserver la vieille idée que l'esprit, ou l'âme, n'avait pas de support biologique. Descartes, qui fut un grand scientifique et un grand penseur, a scellé cette différence: pour lui, il y avait une substance pour le corps, une autre pour l'esprit. Seul Spinoza, qui vivait lui aussi au XVIIe siècle, à Amsterdam, comme Descartes, s'est rebellé: l'esprit et le corps devaient avoir, disait-il, une racine commune. Et plus on réalise que Spinoza avait vu juste. Exactement. L'émotion, au sens le plus simple, serait donc d'abord utilitaire, elle aurait pour but premier de protéger l'organisme, de faire en sorte qu'il se perpétue. Il n'y a aucun doute qu'elle sert à cela. Ne me dites pas qu'il a peur!

We Are Scout | HUNTING. GATHERING. MAKING. THE GOOD STUFF. Add a pop of neon to your desk or shelf with these woven coil bowls. They’d also make a lovely handmade gift, perhaps a small bowl with a few rolls of washi tape inside? … it’s not long until Christmas! You’ll need: Long strips of fabric – anything will work: I used knits, both cotton and acrylic. The pink neon was dirt cheap yardage in a bargain bin and the grey strips are Zpagetti yarn. Cord – the neon orange is ‘Brickie’s Line’ from the hardware store ($5 for 100 metres) – or you can use more fabric or yarn like I did on the pink bowls. A large yarn needle with a big eye. Scissors. If you are cutting up fabric (T shirts, sheets, fabric yardage, etc) the thicker you cut it the chunkier and quicker your bowl will be. The instructional photos are for the grey bowl with neon orange stitching, so I’ll refer to those colours from now on. Cut a length of orange cord as long as you can manage it without it getting tangled, and thread the needle with it. Finishing off. And you’re done!

Avatar: The Last Airbender Stones, White Glass by =ChimeraDragonfang on deviantART La décision - Alain Berthoz septembre 2003 présentation par Jean-Paul Baquiast et Christophe Jacquemin La décision En quelques années se sont multipliés les travaux permettant de situer ce que l'on pourrait appeler la machine humaine au point milieu d'une double évolution. La première de ces évolutions a demandé au moins 600 millions d'années et a vu émerger les comportements intelligents puis conscients dans les multiples filières de développement des espèces animales, dont l'espèce humaine fait évidemment partie. Plusieurs disciplines scientifiques sont à la source de cette vision révolutionnaire, encore mal comprise par les humains qui dans leur écrasante majorité restent enfermés dans les récits mythologiques ancestraux relatifs à la nature de la vie, de l'esprit et de la conscience. Le nouveau livre d'Alain Berthoz, La Décision, que nous présentons ici, comble cette lacune, en faisant le point des recherches les plus récentes de la neurophysiologie, dont celles menées dans le laboratoire de l'auteur.

DIY Iron Transfer Tote While wandering aimlessly around the fabric store, I stumbled across an iron transfer pen. I was fairly certain it would be too good to be true, maybe best just for mapping out embroidery lines, but I’m here to say that it works SO good. Instead of the vinyl or hard feel of other iron on transfers, the final version of this is smooth to the touch since it’s basically an ink transfer. It’s probably the easiest image transfer I’ve ever done (not that I’m excited or anything). Time: 20 minutes Materials: canvas tote, iron transfer pen, iron, paper Cost: ~$8 I used one of the the free #GIRLBOSS printables Jordan Brantley made for my blog last year, but you could use any design you want. Trace over your design with the transfer pen. Place design ink side down and iron for 1-3 minutes. One of the coolest parts about this type of transfer is that you can use the same paper again and again without having to reapply the ink! Super cool right?!

Carrick Bend Mat | How to tie a Carrick Bend Mat | Decorative Knots Origin: This simple mat was given a number by Ashley (ABOK # 2287, p 371) but no name. It bears a strong resemblance to a Carrick Bend (ABOK # 1439, p 264), which is the name we have chosen for it. Over and Under Sequence: This small design is a member of a family of knots in which the crossings are taken alternately over and under. This is one of the smallest versions and makes a pleasing small mat. Turk's Head Family: The design is also a member of the Turk's Head family. It is presented here as a flat knot. Finishing the Mat: The two ends can be secured in one of several ways. Additional Turns: Although only two complete turn are shown in the animation, one or more additional turns can be added using the same technique to enhance the final appearance. Uses: Small rope mats make excellent tablemats and hot pads. Choice of Material: If the rope or cord is too limp, the mat's pattern will not be very stable.

Lace window treatment with cornflour | Annabel Vita Oh my goodness, this was the quickest, easiest, cheapest project ever but I’m 100 per cent in love with the results. You know those little upgrades that just make your life both better and prettier? This is one of those for our bedroom. So, privacy. The shutters are great at blocking all natural light, which is great for lie-ins. Anyway, the other day I was browsing the Manhatten Nest blog (looking for something else entirely), when I stumbled on this post of yore about using liquid starch and fabric for privacy in glass windows. Obviously, my mind went straight to lace (because my mind always goes straight to lace) and I thought ooh, I gots to try that out one day! Serendipitously, we headed to Ikea earlier in the week to scope out tea-light lanterns for the wedding. Anyway, I got home from work one day and mixed up the starch jelly. Unlike Daniel, I didn’t soak my fabric in the mix. Then I cut out a rectangle of lace using a template I’d made earlier. Et voilà! PS. UPDATE! PPS.

Constellation Jar I asked Amy of This Heart of Mine for a project that would be fun for kids or adults. I love that she thought of star-gazing! We’re so far into the countryside, that the stars here are outrageously bright. Star gazing is one of my favorite things. Because of my love of the stars, when my daughter was little, I purchased her a night light that shines stars all over her bedroom walls. What you’ll need: - a wide mouth jar – The jar needs to be wide enough to fit the small click light inside. -an awl - scissors Cut a strip of the cake pan long enough to fit around inside the jar and tall enough to reach to the very top of the jar. Use the awl to poke holes for the constellations. I connected the constellation dots with a silver Sharpie to make them easier to spot. Fill in the other space with more holes. Roll the aluminum sheet until it fits snug inside the jar. Put the encircled aluminum sheet inside the jar. Take into a dark room and enjoy. The night sky in a holdable form.
