Remember Owl’s post on Disney Princess and Jessica Needs a New Home?
There is nothing like giving someone a musical education that they didn’t ask for but Goddamnit, people discovered how much I like Billy Squier and now Cheap Trick. Surrrender. SURRREEENDER. But don’t give yourself away.
If, like me, you can’t keep your genres straight, take heart! With this handy chart, you’ll never be confused again.
I made a thing for me! I found some inexpensive blue cotton material, so I figured, what the hell, let's try to make a circle skirt!
Okay, she looks a bit like she belongs in a mental ward because I ended up sizing it too big for her, and I screwed up the bias tape SEVERAL TIMES as well as accidentally sewed the garment to itself EVEN MORE TIMES, but I made a thing!
is sooooo hard to get the tension right on!
It took me four months to convince my husband to not whine about the space it'll take up, and two months of research, and a day of snow, but IT'S HERE! My sewing machine is here! Suck it, people who will be hitting up clubs and fancy restaurants and having sex with strangers this weekend. I'M GOING TO BE CRAFTING.
I'm seriously tempted to buy this yarn. It's a silk (60%) and poly (40%) blend, runs 240m/260 yards with 100g/3.5 ounces. I'd like to turn it into a scarf or shawl but have no good idea as to what kind of pattern. Does any of you lovelies have an idea?
Does anyone make soaps? I'm just looking for some help on melt and pour - or rather...
It's my first ever completed crochet project AND my first ever hat! It's pretty basic and pretty imperfect, but I'm still proud to have made it. It's for the toddler I nanny, so it's a smallish hat for a little munchkin head. I'm so excited to give it to him!
Hey crafters, I have a question.
Maybe we could get a thread where crafters throw up crafting ideas for those still struggling to decide what to make loved ones this year?
I know, most of us live somewhere where we can still wear shorts and t-shirts. The fact remains, though: If you craft for the holidays, you'd better get off your butt and start.
This is one of my favorite things they do over at Better After. Every year she conducts an Ugly Lamp Contest and this year's winner is a good one.
I've been making jewelry since I was little, just as a fun craft to keep my hands busy. I stopped while I was in college, and recently bought some supplies to start making stuff again! It's not especially fancy, just some basic beading and wire stuff, but I thought I'd share the photos with y'all.
It's been a helluva week, and I need some positivity, so I'm going to spend my last week of summer vacation doing things I've been putting off for ages. I have on project in particular that I need help with, so I figured I'd crowdsource some ideas because I have no idea what I'm doing. #notcrafty
A few weeks ago I bought ten balls of Noro Silk Garden Chunky from a local yarn seller who was discounting it heavily to get rid of it (it's a discontinued yarn, and was being sold off at £5 per 50 g ball rather than the normal horrifying £11 or so that I had seen it elsewhere). Anyhow, £50 is a lot for me to spend…
This page took foreeeeever (a couple months). Granted, I'm working more, and about to move, and this page had more random swirlies, but I'm so glad it's done. I just put on ID in the background, and finished it. It was also the first page that I worked from the top down, and I actually think I liked it better.
