Les smocks Les smocks, ça fait partie des techniques qui ont « une réputation ». On les visualise tout de suite sur les robes qu’on avait quand on était petites et qui grattaient toujours un peu. Et pourtant, les smocks peuvent être une manière très sympa d’élastiquer un vêtement ! Aujourd’hui, nous allons voir comment smocker la ceinture de Réglisse afin d’obtenir un rendu différent, plus souple et discret. Il existe deux méthodes pour réaliser des smocks. Commencez par couper votre ceinture. Positionnez votre fil élastique à un peu plus de 1cm du bord de la ceinture, côté envers. Une fois la ligne de smock terminée, vous pouvez ajuster le fronçage en tirant délicatement sur l’élastique. Pour que la ceinture se tienne, je vous conseille de réaliser 4 lignes de smocks espacées de 1cm environ. Et voila le résultat ! .

How to Make Paper Pencils (tutorial) I have always wanted to make my own pencils, but the thought of shaping two pieces of wood to allow a piece of lead to sit perfectly inside made me think it wasn’t worth the effort. For some reason I was looking at some pieces of lead I have (for a drafting pencil) and “pop” there it was.. a solution to my DIY longing. Here is a tutorial to make pencils that is so ridiculously easy I’ve made 10 pencils since the idea came to me yesterday! Paper: I recommend using 6″ origami paper. Here’s a video I made so you can watch me make it from start to finish! I have to admit I really enjoyed doing this craft. Hope you’re just as excited about this as I am! leads {here} paper {here} mod podge {here} {If you like pencils, you may also like my toadstool pencil craft!} Share 16K+ Kimanh Hi my name's Kimanh.

sewing 101: zippered throw pillows Next up in our learn-to-sew series: throw pillows! Throw pillows are another fantastic way to incorporate cute textiles and DIY flair into your home without a great investment of time or money. If you’ve ever gone into a fabric store and wanted to buy everything because it’s just all so gorgeous, then pillows are a great way to put those fabrics to work in your decor. Bold or loud prints that would be too much used in large scale (like in curtains) can be just right for a little pillow pop on a sofa or bed. I’m going to show you how to make a zippered pillow cover, which is easier than it sounds, I promise. The best part? CLICK HERE for the full zippered throw pillow how-to after the jump! A Word on Zippers Ok, I know you’re not going to believe me when I say this, but installing a zipper is REALLY EASY. What You’ll Need ½ yard fabric (if your pillow is larger than 16”, you’ll need more fabric) 1 pillow form (buy this at a craft store or upholstery shop) Thread to match your fabric Seam ripper

DIY Pinhole Cards : The Proper Pinwheel When I think back, most of my favorite crafts were learned in grade school. Using crayons over watercolor, making art from paper towels, and nap time. Those are some of my fave elementary memories. Pinhole stationary has to be one of the best ways to dress up some regular old paper. To make your own you’ll need: cardstock in assorted colorsscissorstapesafety pinmirrored image or text To mirror your text, copy from Word and paste into Paint. Watch some TV while you poke all of the little holes. Bada-bing. Play around with a few fonts and see what you like! Write a message on the inside. Who are you rooting for in 2012?

Woven gift-wrap // pastel edition ^_^ By Kate on August 8, 2012 I noticed that the woven gift-topper I made last year was doing the rounds again on Pinterest so I thought I would make an updated pastel version (pastels seem to be the new neon at the moment). I bought some quilling strips (0.5cm) to use this time which reduces the labour by about half (I’ve also been working on some more intricate woven ‘things’ for another project…more to come soon). Anyway check out the previous post if you want full instructions. Above: Mischevious hands – the unseen backdrop in all my photo’s ^_^ While I took photos today my boys were making their own presents by wrapping boxes in newspaper. Finally, the font used on these images is called soymilk and it’s free to download …yay!

Gift Ideas for Poor Creative Souls (17) Posted by: Cathy on Aug 04, 2012 Tagged in: Untagged Paper Flower Tutorial Doesn't this look divine? Materials needed: - hand-painted paper or colored paper - watercolor paint (if painting your own paper) - florists tape - cork - wire - decorator's tape - scissors - craft knife If you decide to paint your own paper, you can add a wash of soft pink to your paper/card. Cut your paper in thin strips with a craft knife. If you've used a few pieces of paper, join them with paper glue so that you end up with a long strip. Start rolling up this strip of paper. Now you can cut your green paper into leaf shapes as above. Attach your leaves with more tape all around the base of the flower. To make the center of your flower, cut a small piece of cork and push a piece of wire through it as in the image. Push the cork heart through the center of your flower. Cover the stem with tape. Lastly, cover the base of the flower and stem with green florist tape. Et voila!

Coasters for Christmas Around this time of year things tend to slow down a lot in the theatre world. The Christmas season shows are all up and running (they usually open early or mid November) and the January shows haven't really kicked into high gear yet. It is the perfect time of year to use my crafting skills to make gifts for my friends and family (and this year I'm thinking of selling some too, more on that later). One of my projects this year is resin coasters. I have been saving bottle caps all year for this project, it helps that my friends drink a lot of interesting beer. I bought these resin molds online for pretty cheap (don't cut corners here, the chemical reaction as the resin hardens will cause it to stick to or melt your mold if you aren't using one designed for it). The next step is to spray on a mold release and let it dry (if you don't let it dry all the way the mould release will float to the top of your resin when you pour it in, where it will be useless) and mix in the hardener.

La valise de Roxane Je me suis enfin décidée à la faire cette superbe valise. J'avoue que ça me paraissait un peu difficile mais avec son tuto, on peut pas se rater. Merci Roxane!! Pour les tissus, j'ai choisi de la suèdine de chez Toto et du coton de chez Motif Personnel auquel j'ai rajouté du tissu thermocollant pour plus de rigidité. Le biais est fait maison, tissus à pois de chez Myrtille, la poignée est faite avec 2 épaisseurs de Jeffitex ( le Jeffitex moins cher je l'ai trouvé ici) et 2 fermetures éclair. Comme pas mal de gens disait que la valise était un peu petite, j'ai agrandit en suivant ses indications : Les chiffonneries du chat... et tout rentre!!! Bon jeudi!!!

DIY Elbow Patch - Honestly WTF While perusing Pinterest one evening, I came across an intriguing tutorial on the wonderful art of needle felting. I had to learn more – especially after realizing it entailed repeatedly stabbing a needle up and down into a piece of fabric or sweater. A satisfying stress reliever that results in something wearable? Sign me up. You’ll need: With the sweater on, place a piece of tape about half an inch below the elbow. Align and center the bottom of the cookie cutter along the top of the tape. Fill the cutter, spreading out the wool fibers evenly. At the base of all felting needles are tiny, sharp burrs, which grab and interlock the wool fibers. Continue stabbing away until the surface is flat and even. Remove the cutter and use the tip of the needle to reign in any stray fibers, if necessary. Patch up any bare or uneven spots by adding more wool roving where needed. Carefully peel the sweater away from the foam. Repeat the same steps the other sleeve. Ta da! (all images by HonestlyWTF)
