The Drunken Yarn


Crochet Elephant Bookends!

I would just make two butts.



From Corinne’s Thread, on The Purl Bee:

Free sewing pattern and easy to follow tutorial for these sweet gym shorts, in ten different child & adult sizes! 

Using only 1/2 to 3/4 yard of two different fabrics, this is a great stash busting project.

I am totally going to sew me up some pretty pajama bottoms!


DIY Floral Sneakers Tutorial from Always Rooney. I’ve written contantly on this blog about tee shirt transfer iron on paper - you print it, cut it and iron it on. I have used tee shirt transfer paper on countless shirts, bags, fabric etc… and the transfers hold up beautifully wash after wash.

Faux Druzy Stud Earrings via Minted Strawberry for Craftaholics Anonymus

So I’m not quite sure why but I’m obsessed with these studded high-tops from love u madly. The shoes (plain, sans stud) are $25 from H&M and come in 4 colors and I think I may just make a special trip and try to buy a pair tomorrow to do this.

Because this is fantastic.


DIY Mascara will Lengthen your Eyelashes (so they say!)

What you need

Wash an old mascara container and fill with:

1/4 of the container with Castor Oil

1/2 Vitamin E Oil

1/4 Aloe Vera Gel

Mix the concoction together as well as you can with your mascara wand, and apply a light layer to lashes (or brows!) every night before bed.

Castor oil thickens your lashes while aloe vera gel lengthens. Vitamin E accelerates length. After one month, you’ll notice stronger, longer, more beautiful eyelashes.

My eyelashes are pretty much kaput and with those other mascara formulas having a bunch of side effects I think this may be the way to go.

Make a cardigan out of any top and some iron-on adhesive. Vanilla Joy got this project from this blog post on Pinterest. Personally I like the Pinterest one better but the pictures weren’t as good. C’est la vie.

Funzies with thrifting 80s fashion and paint!

Well this is a godsend because my gigantic boobs were feeling left out with all this low-backed fashion. Super easy tutorial on how to make your bra low backed and plus(!) it won’t ruin any of your bras and is super cheap and fast.

Jean shorts with polka dots. Jorts are my summer uniform and I think people are starting to think I wear the same pair every day. I need to do something like this to be like hey! I swear I don’t live in filth! Ok, well that’s a lie, I totally do, but I change my shorts on occasion!
