Our Secret Santa Contest is back!
Enter Now »
Thank you! And I try to, as much as I possibly can.
That's lovely. What gauge hook did you use, and yarn? If you don't mind my asking?
Hello, I'd just like to say that our cats are extremely similar. They should probably be friends.
Panther no panth, I'm goin' thwimmin!
(commence chronic knee slapping now)
I made this and it was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! And so easy, and so few ingredients! I'll definitely be making this again any time I need some high-class sugar!!
I LOVE the last one!
Basically, just sew the triangle bra pieces onto the front of the skirt part of the dress.
They remind me of Reese's Pieces. P:
How did you edit these photos? They're LOVELY! They make me want to go live in France.
This is lovely! I can never seem to commit to a crochet project for more than half the deal. Maybe I'll have to reconsider! (or re-commit)
Thank you very, very much for the nice comment about the guitar backpack! It was a really fun project, and you should TOTALLY TRY IT!
one from the pinky.
Post your versions if you do! I'd love to see them!
I would like most to visit Paris. I just want to be able to sit in a little cafe and be surrounded by people speaking a different language, and be able to observe but still be separated. Being alone in a foreign environment fascinates me.
My favorite thing about New York is to be able to walk down any street and be able to see people of all different races, ages, sizes, shapes and colors. It's like taking a slice from each slice of a pie chart.
Those are really great pictures! What sort of camera did you use?
I would just like to say that there is no possible way to have too many crayons.
I love that you made the rings out of string! Finally, a ring that doesn't require finding ring bases!!!!!
Do you know how long this will keep?
THAT IS A BEAUTIFUL DRESS!!!!!!
I meant for women, not necessarily by women. I just realized that sounded sort of weird.
Yeah, I think it actually was something like that. I was looking at the contest, thinking of how awesome it would be to win an awesome women-built guitar. Then I took out my dad's guitar to try to get inspired. It's the perfect size!
You all should definitely make one! I want to see how other ones would turn out, and what cool variations you make!
Ooh, this is so ideasmartness! I love it! I totally want to get married barefoot someday! This way, my poor little toesies wouldn't feel too naked. Tweehee!
OMG! I GAVE THOSE SAME ROCKET SHIP POPSICLE MOLDS TO MY LITTLE COUSIN!!!!!! OMG!!!!!
Go for it!
I really like this, that was a smart way to hang them.
Hey! Great job, I love it!
Is the fabric like a cotton, or jersey.... what is it exactly? I like this pattern, and great job with the vid!
Yeah, and double the excitement when your buddy gets a 'postcard' from your vacation spot!
DID YOU SERIOUSLY DO THIS?!?!?!?!?!?!? I think wire wrapping is amazing, how do you go around starting to do it?
I remember in my Waldorf kindergarden, we made these by taking a tennis ball, making an indent in the sand, and then putting little shells and rocks in the "mould" so that they would show up on the outside. Thanks for bringing it back up!
Aaw, keep trying! You'll get it sooner or later!
How much peanut butter?
Cool! I think I can see another version of it! This looks pretty cool!
OMG!!! I LOVE YOUR PROFILE PIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I must say that I have three rock loves. They inspire me, and I look up to them in many different ways. The first one is John Lennon. I love his music. It is beautiful, and he was an amazing songwriter. The second is Tavi Gevinson. It really amazes me how someone the same age as me (three days younger!!) can be so successful in... life. I am very much inspired by her. The third is closer to home, my friend Louise. She has ideas and ideas overflowing from her brain! She is a lover of fashion, and together, we make a great team for making things! I value our friendship very much.
Whenever you have a boring shirt-button-downs, tees, anything!- take a thread and some sparkly seed beads and add little splashes of color and sparkle in little flowers, bursts, lines- the sky's the limit! It'll always spruce up any outfit!
No. I really wish I had, though. But I have had thoughts about using it as a pattern for another dress. I could do some other design instead of the ruffles, or copy the ruffles, too. If I ever do make one, I promise I'll post it! I actually got it at Urban Outfitters (on sale, I might add, because a strap was broken-disconnected-ripped off. An easy fix! That's the only claim I have to it, and that's a bit weak!)
oops. They are really, really cool*
I LOVE your projects! It is really, really cool! These projects will definitely keep me busy over the summer!
AAAH!!! IT'S SUCH A PARADOX!!! Definitely would have been helpful! I remember for my first how-to I forgot something or another and it wouldn't let me publish! I didn't see the sign that told me what I missed. ;)
I REALLY LOVE THESE! Did they eventually fade or wear out on your skin? :D
Try, try again! If you can get a couple done, you'll see it through new eyes and the rest will be a blast. You usually get a couple of tricks under your belt, and then you'll be assembling like a pro!
thanks! feel free to post a picture when you're finished!
Did you put some sort of padding between two pieces of fabric, or is that just the fabric?
Thanks for the <3!!!
What kind of yarn did you use? Wool? Cotton? It's really cute!
Gosh... I can't remember! I think I was thinking about stained glass at the time... It was really fun to see what patterns I could come up with! (and would work!) I'd love to see other people's versions of it!
Believe me, the guinea-pig plan really works well!
Glad you like it!
How long? On what temperature?
What are the units on the milk, sugar, and vanilla?
HOW TO!!!! PLEASE!!??!?!?!
This seems like a dress that I would make, and LOVE TO WEAR!!!
So clever! I LOVE it!
Glad you liked it!
i'm not sure as to how to get it'paste-like. i'm mixing.... am i missing anything?
Great! Send me the link when you get it up!
Thanks! I like it, too!
Made this, super easy and tasted GREAT! Thanks, KYLESTREETRACER!!!
When I was in elementary school, I got gum in my hair. It was pretty funny watching the secretary debate with the other secretary (no nurse) on what to use. In the end they used peanut butter because someone recommended oil. However, when this was first suggested, one of the secretaries wanted to put GASOLINE in my hair! Funny memories...
That's an awesome tank! But you might want to add needle and thread to the you will need section?
Yeah, I've heard of people doing that. I'm sure it looks much nicer, but I'm too lazy to do something that fancy! But you should definitely post a version if you try it! (Or already have)
Great! Post a pic of it!
This was not the only time, I'm sure you've had many moments as well!
LOVE IT!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUUUUUUTTTTTTTTEEEE!!!!!!!
Thanks! I think that, if you couldn't understand the instructions, you pretty much do an accordion fold at the bottom and then sew that in place.
Is there a certain type of fabric I should use?
Hey! Thanks for the favorite and all of that, but what I really wanted to say was PERTH??? YOU ARE SO LUCKY! Some friends went on a honeymoon to Perth and said it was GORGEOUS!!!-(and it was, from the pics!) One question- do the kangaroos actually hang around there or do they put feed down to attract them?
That's great! Very clever!
Erm...... The 'You Will Need' portion only says caramel. Might want to change that.
Yup, no problem!
Thank you! I recommend doing a tester first on a tee of the same size to find the measurements you'll need.
That's okay, I'd never wear mine any other time, either!
*GAAKKKK* I really hope I do win! That's nice of you to say!
I usually never even bother to change the thread color at all to match the fabric. I went through one sewing binge that resulted in various colored tees, all with red thread!!! ;)
I did enter it, really hopeful I win! Have you entered anything?
BTW, I'd love to see how you did your version. Any chance you could post it? I have also found that if it slips down too much, you can tie a simple knot at the top and tie the ends around the back of your neck. Works great, but it makes the front go up a bit. Might want to wear it that way with pants!!
You have to make three folds in all. The first fold is where the top crease already is. Right now the crease goes up, and you need to make it point downward. To make the other three folds, just make upward folds where you stopped cutting. (The corners you make in step two.)
Hope that helped!
Whoa. You should be charging way more than $1!!!!!!!!!! It's AMAZING!!!!
I've always heard that after you dye you should:
put in a plastic bag
leave it overnight
leave to dry in sun until dry
put in hot, dry cycle
wash with a cup of vinegar.
My uncle tye-dyed and that's what he always said! Anyone else heard this?
I love this!!
I recently saw something like this. It was rolled up disposable diapers made into a three-layer cake on a cake stand and held together by ribbons. Very cute!
Would love to know how to make it. PLEASE post how-to!!!
GACK!!!! I just cut it and it's super short! (for my standards)
Headaches are normal, it should all slide together in the end!!!
I love it too, since it helped to un-clutter my closet!
this is great!!!! I'm making one RIGHT NOW!!!!
love it!! sooooo cute!!!
I LOVE Etsy!!!
I absolutely loveloveLOVE your woven baskets! What I'm wondering is how to make them. Is there some how-to online or should I just figure it out on my own? Let me know!
I totally have that stay green tee! Only I didn't like the way it fit me... So I tye-dyed it....... Love it!!!!!!!!!
Wait. Am I supposed to use white or clear nail polish. I just want to know so l buy the right kind!
ick. sorry, i can't stand blood
This is a really cool idea, but the first eyebrow pic looks a little small. The eyebrow, l mean.
Thank you SO MUCH!!!!!!!!
I just got my hair cut short, and i needed some way to put it up. If you have any more great ideas, just post 'em!!!!
I'm glad you like it!
I always assumed it was too difficult as well, until someone showed me in person. ;)
Yeah, i think sticky notes would work. Post it when you make it!
I don't know, but I can certainly try.
wow, you look a lot like someone i met at a summer camp once.
oh yeah. ummmm...... i sorta took a break and ate dinner there. and then i took my hair down from the awesome french twist that i also have a how-to on.
erm..... i think that four minutes is what you meant to say? (you said four hours.) and thanks for posting, i never really knew what i was supposed to do with one. now i know it goes in your hair. ;)
Thanks for favitorizing my craft!
i love things like this. experiment more and post your ideas!
This is a cute idea!
This is really cool!
do you know what 1-2 centimeter would be in inches??? i'm not sure if i have a metric ruler
camilaustral- i made one with a fitted shirt that was just a little bit loose and it turned out great.
I wonder- do you even need to glue the piece in half? would it hold without it?
I made one of these with colors pink, peach, and green striped body. It turned out really cool!
I must say that this is pretty much awesome! no other way to describe it!
