random cute stuff i find while wasting my time online, lots of diy/décor inspiration and the occasional zombie-related post.
Circle Wrap Skirt | The Crafting Chicks
I think I’ve finally accepted the reality that the only thing I’m good at sewing is skirts. But there’s no prolem with that because skirts and dresses are my unofficial uniform. I adore this simple flippy skirt (twirly skirts are the bomb) and the colour is amazing. I’m going to be buying some fabric this weekend and make this, pronto!
DIY Map Ideas | Blue Moss
Another map craft! This is a lovely way to remember your travels. I’m sure you have maps from the places you’ve visited. You can purchase wooden letters and glue the maps to the letters - this would look great as a vignette with a couple of framed pictures too. There are some other great ideas here too, click through!
This is that Blanket that Everyone was Looking for a Pattern for! DIY Giganto Blanket here Finally Finished now with Tutorial and Pattern at Ravelry here for $4.99. You have to sign up at Ravelry, but that’s free. I just watched the video (link at bottom) with my significant other and it is amazing. Extreme knitting. Written at Ravelry:
This enormous blanket is knit on 1 1/2” PVC pipe, using slightly-felted superwash (yes, you read that right) unspun wool roving. This pattern is more of a tutorial, as the pattern is: CO 28, k2 p2, BO!
If you’ve ever wanted to knit in a gigantic gauge, this pattern teaches you where to find the raw materials, how to create “yarn” and “needles” from unusual objects, and finally how to knit up your very own giganto-blanket!
Communicating through Animals. Found on Family Chic Blog here. So cute. Use them as place cards or funny whatevers (and yes, I can imagine what I and others on Tumblr might write that would not be printable on Family Chic).
You can pick up a bag of plastic animals for about $6.00 or less at craft or toy stores. Using an X-Acto knife, make a deep, yet very small v-shaped cut into the mouth of the plastic animal.
