June Bug dress remix tutorial-part 1. English version I finally managed to finish the tutorial! For those that were waiting for it, thanks for your patience. Here it is! Before reading this tutorial: please, notice english is a foreign language for me. Northern Lights Capelet I knit this Northern Lights Capelet in the spirit of the earliest knitters, to bring light and warmth into the darker, colder months. Wear this cropped little cape under or over your coat, a streamlined layer that blocks arctic air from necks and shoulders and looks very pretty doing it! Knit up in a soft palette of Purl Soho’s beautiful Flax Down, this Capelet is a blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen. The subtle shades of the Nordic-inspired colorwork glow like a February sunrise.
Desk chair transformation Last Christmas my in Laws gave Ken and I matching Desk chairs. We only had one and it was pretty broken. Ever since I’ve had a love-hate relationship with it. I love it because it’s so comfortable, actually one of the best I’ve ever had. My back does so much better with this chair, BUT it’s all dark and leather, in hot days I feel like I get stuck on it and it hurts when I get up

DIY Gold Tube Bracelets I have very vivid memories of walking into a bead store for the first time, almost 15 years ago, and being overwhelmed by the million and ten ideas that filled my mind. I was immediately hooked on the concept of transforming simple and unexpected elements into something beautiful and wearable. That moment was the catalyst for my eventual path into jewelry design and craft – my higher calling, if you will. Today’s tutorial takes me back to my first foray into jewelry making, where I’ll show you how to make two delightful bracelets using the same basic component. Get inspired and have fun!

sewing 101: fabric boxes It seems no matter what I do, I can never get a handle on all the tiny odds and ends that accumulate around my house. From craft materials to hair ties, the bits and bobs are constantly trying to take over, so in the never-ending quest to corral them, these little fabric bins were born. You can make one of these soft boxes in almost no time, and in almost any size, so you can customize them to perfectly fit whatever you need to hold. Top each one off with a label holder (also customizable in any shade of the rainbow, thanks to nail polish), and you’ll have a leg up on clutter . . . for a little while, at least. — Brett Bara
DIY Gift Tutorial: Lip Balm Holder I saw a picture of a lip balm holder on Pinterest, but there weren’t any instructions. I always lose my lip balm in the bottom of my purse!

It’s super simple, and you could easily do the sewing by hand without a sewing machine. Wrap up in Style with this DIY Wool Blanket Coat You can make this super easy blanket coat with a blanket and a belt you might already have around the house.
