making a french sennit tutorial Cut eight pieces of cord 12 ft long and one 6 ft long. “Middle” the 12ft length. This gives us 16 strands at 72”. The single 6 ft strand will make the 17th. strand. (You want to treat the ends of the cord to keep them from fraying out while working. If using Nylon burn the loose ends. Secure the strands to a fixed object then separate the cords with a group of ten on one side and seven on the other. Be careful to keep the seven and ten groups separated or you will have to undo several plaits to figure out where you went wrong. (If you’re in the Military, active or reserve, be sure the lanyard is large enough to put on and take off without disturbing your cover! When you get to the desired length of the neckpiece of the lanyard, bring the two ends of the plaited lanyard together. Using one of the loose strands wrap the two ends together. If you don't want to make a large Turks head with several bights, use a slightly larger cord and chase it around four of five times. NOTE!

How About Orange Here's a look at our upstairs guest bathroom. Last night I covered an accent wall with removable wallpaper. I love it! This bathroom has a peculiar layout. You walk in past the shower stall on the right, and when you hit the sink, you turn right to get to the toilet. The kind folks at Walls Need Love sent the product to review. Like the Sunburst wallpaper I designed last year, this paper is essentially a giant self-adhesive wall decal, and it's easily to peel off and reposition. I measured the wall and cut a length of paper that would leave a little extra overhang at the bottom. After a couple tries I had it, and then it was just a matter of peeling off the backing paper gradually while smoothing down the paper with the tool provided. I cut another piece to place next to the first panel, overlapping the seam by a quarter inch to match the pattern. Then with a craft knife and straight edge, I trimmed off any overhang that wrapped onto the adjacent walls and baseboard.

DIY Spiderweb Racer-back Video here Supplies: old tee, scissors DIY tutorial below VIDEO tutorial here Fold the back of the shirt in half. Cut even strips about a finger length from the top to the bottom. Pull the cut edges individually to form strings. Tip: Using a pillow is great for weaving the strands. First will need to secure the ends with a safety pin or it will come undone. Continue to weave the shirt as much as you'd like, by going over each strand. Secure the woven edges by sewing or knotting them. Cut a thumb length seam along the weave. Cut the sleeves off the shirt. Do not cut the collar. Cut the excess to create a tank in the front. Tip: tug the seams of the weave and cut edges to create a finished looking seam. Looks great with a bandeau...
