So i saw this bracelet on Pinterest that I loved – and thought – hey I bet I can make that….so I gave it a whirl.
- Bracelet on Pinterest & Obaz
Mine is not identical – but it uses the same thought process. I kinda like mine better – I used better beads and its really comfortable to wear.
I will say the suede-like straps I used are not the best choice. I think they’re not sturdy enough. I think I might try this again with a better leather cording and see what happens.
I love flowers. This spring I’ll start planting and sharing pics of my flowers. In the winter I like to WEAR flowers. They make me feel happy and “spring-y” while things are kind of grey and drab.
I found a great video tutorial that will show you how to do it – this is probably the easiest one I’ve found out there,and I looked at a lot of them. I think each flower takes less than 5 minutes – you just need fabric and a glue gun, or fabric glue. Here are the flowers I made:
The video tutorial will be after the jump. It’s a little shaky but bear with her, this is the best technique I found for making these. Let me know how it works out for you!
My friends will be quick to tell you that I am one of the most impatient people they know. In this world of “instant gratification” of high-speed Internet and “buy it instead of make it” I’ve had to really work hard to be patient when starting projects.
That being said, I LOVE to crochet, but I hate to spend weeks or months getting a project done. I like 2 – 4 hour projects. I’m a big fan of starting something that I can finish wile I’m watching a movie or two on a Sunday.
This scarf came about for two reasons. One, I cant ever seem to keep one around my neck. Long or short I end up tripping over the end or dropping it in the slop on the ground; and two, I didn’t want the project to take all day, let alone weeks.
I tried quite a few different patterns and hated them all, they take too long. Then I started messing around with Lion brand Hometown USA yarn and a HUGE crochet hook. I’m talking a size P hook. They are normally plastic and as big around as my thumb.
