The Drunken Yarn

Prettiness and super easy Chevron Bangle from Yellow Blackbird.

DIY Stitched Wooden Pendant Necklace. Unfortunately you can only order the pendant templates online but they have so many possibilities why wouldn’t you?

You could also do this with GoogleMars my fellow space cadets!

Added note, I agree with screamingdustspecks, it could be a very very creepy craft in the wrong hands. So no doing this of your crush’s (stalkee’s) house on your nightly pillowcase! Although telling you not to do it may have just given you ideas…

Yet another Trash to Couture DIY. The Victorian Print short! Even though (or maybe especially since) this project doesn’t have a pattern this is still not a beginner project due to the possible addition of a zipper and pockets. You could always adjust and have an elastic band but I personally think a zipper always looks better.

I was tired of seeing chalkboard pain in only black, white and green so I’m pretty excited that this tutorial came out. You can make any spot on your wall an inconspicuous chalkboard. Well… you may want to make it a little conspicuous so you don’t get chalk on your real walls, but you’re picking up what I’m throwing down.

Here are some more ideas for your custom paint from the one and only Martha.

I always like a tutorial where I save a ton of money for something that looks really great and is super easy to make with a bit of guidance. Hence the love for this braided scarf tutorial by Put Up Your Dukes.

What What?! Look at this necklace. Made entirely by a meter of zipper, some glue and thread to hold it together, and a big ass rhinestone (and a clasp but that was self explanatory, yeah?)

Its pretty simple to do and has a big impact on whatever you’re wearing.

So! Purl Bee has done it again in the tutorial department. Here is a step by step with pictures “How to make a pair of socks.” I’m pretty excited about this because I have a pair of socks I’ve been making for Bear for a year and a half now. I have 3 inches on the cuff (year and a half with some gaps…)

My friend was teaching a sock class and I obviously didn’t get to the heel by the time the class had concluded so she said “Don’t worry, when you get to it, I’ll be here to show you how to do it.” AND THEN SHE MOVED! And then I moved and now my little ankle cuff sits all alone. But now! This tutorial has given me the strength, They make it look so easy!

The zipper neckline on this tee is definitely an interesting twist and it’s an easy day to night transition shirt. You can make it out of an old tee or even just a yard of jersey fabric. I think I would try this with a neon zipper, but the black and gold with the greige looks pretty tempting.

Augh! This is so cool! And looks way better than that weird “tie your shirt this way to make your boyfriends shirt into a dress or skirt” thing… As long as your boyfriend doesn’t want his shirt back. For her particular skirt she didn’t use any darts or anything and it’s just the fabric from a medium sized men’s shirt she got at Good Will. Look for a shirt that will button around you at the hips and you’ve picked a winner.

Bear has a shirt with the nastiest stains in the collar but the rest of it is fine, I may use that one once I get my sewing machine up and running.
