Hi! I'm Twinkie Chan. I design and crochet food-themed accessories for you and your stuff, like cupcake scarves, hamburger mitts, and corn dog pen cozies! I live in San Francisco with my two doggies, and I also am a blogger and YouTuber. I really love cookies, french fries, and teen-drama television.

Daniela from Green Bird recreates The Burrow from Harry Potter for today's #DIYTheRoom
What I really love about The Burrow from Harry Potter is the cozy atmosphere. Mis-matched second hand furniture and accessoires, all in a rustic and heavy look give the place a warm feeling. I also like the patchwork textiles all over the place or the beautiful lampshade and the wooden table. So I tried to recreate a matching style out of 10 beautiful DIY-Projects.

Jenny creates her dream vintage look for today's #DIYTheLook

A make do and mend kinda girl who knows how to turn something ordinary into a statement piece. I included the cardigan, because even though it was intended as a children's project it would certainly work for 1950s woman who wanted fun and colour after the 1940s austerity,
