I ♥ mathematics {platonic solids garland} Oooh….it’s been I while since I last posted. We had a smashing Christmas and new year. Hope you all did too! My computer died just before Christmas and it’s taken my hubby and I a while to bring it back to life…which is why it’s been a bit quiet. Now seems like a good time to thank all you lovely lot for visiting minieco over the last couple of years. In between posts I regulary use pinterest so do pop over and check it out if you haven’t already. There seems to be a bit of a Polyhedra craze going on at the moment. I have put together some templates for a ‘platonic solids‘ garland. Simply chop, score and glue together. Don’t forget to thread your cotton in whilst glueing the pieces together….I forgot! I’ll try to get a better photo of it in situ…our conservatory is really bright and sunny but the rest of the house is pretty dark (especially in this miserable weather). If you want something a bit more subtle then you could make the polyhedra white with some neon/gold thread!

¡The AntiCraft! Glaistig Half beautiful woman and half goat, the Glaistig is a mythological creature of Scotland and Wales who was by some legends malevolent (seducing men into dancing with her, then sucking their blood) and by some benevolent (a guardian of cattle or children).

Instructables A wallet is something nearly everyone carries and uses daily. It is an excellent canvas for personalization. There are dozens of Instructables for wallets; some are practical, some decorative, some weird and wonderful and possibly not very useful. There are denim wallets, plastic bag wallets, Altoids tin wallets, wallets that light up or store data, wallets that aren't actually wallets at all... There are enough here to make a different wallet for every day of the month, for several months. But that many wallets is overkill.

DIY Furniture: An Awesomely Inspiring How-To Book | Man Made DIY | Crafts for Men | Keywords: upcycle, how-to, shop, furniture I don't buy a lot of how-to books these days. It's not that I dislike reading, but rather I tend to go to web for most of my instructional needs. Sometimes, however, I come across a book that looks so amazing that I just need to get it. That's how I felt when I discovered DIY Furniture: A Step-by-Step Guide by Christopher Stuart. It's now at the top of my reading list; I plan on ordering a copy ASAP. The book features 30 designs by top-notch designers that range from interior seating and storage to garden furniture. A Knit Knack Shop Welcome to You! How to knit small circumferences w/ one long circular How to knit small circumferences using one long circular needle If you understand the concept of knitting with two circulars it is easy to switch over to using one long circular to knit a small circumference. The two techniques are very similar (same basic concept) and which you use will likely depend on the circulars you already own or your budget for buying new circulars. Also, some people prefer using one circular because the dangling ends of a second circular can be considered distracting. I like working with a 40" Addi Turbo circular. My size 0 Addi is 47" and that works great as well. This technique has been around for ages, some people say their grandma or auntie did it, but it's explained in a booklet published by Fiber Trends titled "The Magic Loop" so that's what most people now call it. I received the Fiber Trends booklet as a gift after I had already learned the technique so I was prepared to trade it away. Instructions for using one circular: See Picture 1 below.

Christmas cracker templates By Kate on December 10, 2011 I can’t imagine tucking into a Christmas dinner without pulling a cracker first. I love the naff hats, the cringe-worthy jokes (and just the tradition of it all). Crackers are so easy to make…and if you don’t fancy making some for the table you can make some miniature ones to hang in the tree. They also make really cool gift boxes. I’ve put some templates together if you wanna try. Here’s how: 1) Download the pdf and print onto thin card. 3) Score along all the dotted lines. 5) Fold along all the vertical lines. 6) Fold along horizontal lines as shown. 7) Bring ends together and join using a glue stick or double sided tape. 8) Tie one end with a length of cotton/ribbon/string* 9) Wrap a gift/sweets/hat/joke/confetti* in some tissue paper 10) Pop inside cracker and tie the other end with cotton/ribbon/string* * delete where appropriate!! Job done!! Hope all your Christmas or Hanukkah crafts/preparations/plans are coming along a treat.
