Thanks for the explanations. I don't actually know what the hoops cost here (in Finland) right now, but usually all craft supplies are expensive. But if you can get cheap hoops, then it makes sense to use them as frames as it really looks fun.
this looks nice, but I'm wondering if someone could explain something to me. Why do people use the hoops as frames? It looks nice, but it just seems like a strange thing to do. I mean you would need a new hoop for each of your embroideries. Isn't it expensive? I bet here it would be.
I had to try this too, even though we don't normally use that much butter. It was fun and easy and now I want to make more. I just need to figure out how to use all that butter. Cooking is not an option right now since my younger son gets an upset tummy from dairy products. (I hope it'll pass within a year or so though.)
This is original and inspiring! A very good design And even though it's not my style I feel like doing something similar (just more in my style, so less geometric more organic), but the basic idea is great.
Hi, my son (5 yo) got inspired to craft again and now we planned to make some traffic-lights and traffic-signs for him. I think we will make the signs out of cardboard and paint them (he likes to cut and paint). Now I need ideas for what to use for the base and the post. He suggested toothpicks, but I fear that they might be too thin and break too easily. Materials should be very cheap/free and preferably recycled (something we might already have at hand). I was thinking of doing the base from some kind of clay, but he doesn't like the idea (he's got an issue with how things feel).
(I hope this is the right place for this kind of question.)
I'm confused (it's a culture thing i guess, since I'm from Finland). Why do you have the price inside the bag? Here we print pricetags from the scale(-machine-thingy) and put them on the bag and by that I mean on the outside. You can just remove the tag when you get home and put on a new one the next time you're shopping. Or you could add a little piece of carboard or something to the top and glue the tags there one over the other.
