I'm off to uni this september and my friends and i have all vowed to write to eachother, but i want to mix it up a bit and send them little things in with the letters I write, but i'm a bit stuck for ideas. I'm trying to think of things that are light enough just to need a 1st class stamp, so far i've thought of glitter (glitter in letters is always fun) and i'm gonna make a few of AnonymousContent's teeny tiny butterfly journals, and I might try and find some old cracker jokes to make my friends laugh! I was maybe thinking recipie cards as well, you always need cheap and quick ideas at uni!
Have you got any ideas? Whats the best thing you've ever recieved in the post?
Omg!! Omg!! I know it's not quite a project form the book, but I just did my AS Level English Language Exam and it was an extract from Debbie's Knitting Handbook! I thought that it was unbeliavably freaky- I opened up my exam and it said about "Stitch 'n Bitch" and i was like wow! it must be a sign!! Debbie should be rockin to know that so many 16, 17 and 18 year olds have all found out about the history of knitting from her book!
Does anyone else think that this is extremely weird, coincedental but cool? I just had to share it on here because I was so astounded when I opened my exam, and I was wondering if anyone else had the same experience?
Ive got this tee that I adore but is a bit to small for me, so I'm thinking about turning it into a bag, but as it's made of jersey fabric I was wondering if anyone had any tips on using the fabric, or any ideas on what kind of bag to make it into. I'm quite good at totes, and I've made a lot of them in the past, but I'm feeling a bit more adventurous. The Kids on the front are both stuffed and are pockets, so in theory could be moved about anywhere. Anyway- heres the pics and any ideas or advice is very welcome!! Its about a UK size 10, which I think is a US 12.
This is my 1st ever entry into a craft challenge on craftster, and it's not fabulous compared to everyone else's entries, but I adore these shoes! I started off with some worn out pink shoes I got 3 years ago...
And I thought.. whats looks good with pink... Cupcakes!!! (or fairy cakes as we call em here in angleterre!) So I attacked them with some yellow ribbon (never, ever, ever sew ribbon onto leather shoes without a thimble. my hands had holes in them for weeks after!) and some glittery fabrick/gold fabric/cool button cupcakes that i made, and voila:
Hey- I was sorting through my earrings recently and found a load of odd ones which i really liked, but would never wear as odd earrings so I decided to make phone charms out of them- I found the top of the charm on www.jillybeads.co.uk for 20p each (about 36 cents), and I also found a bit of extender chain that had broken off a necklace:
and After ( the pic of the third charm is really bad- sorry. I took some pictures and they came out terrible so I took some more, but by this time I'd wrapped the third one up to give my friend)
They only took me about 5 minutes to make and I think they're fab! When I get a new phone, I'm going to put one on it (my phone atm doesnt have anywhere to put it, but my contracts finishing in a month)
Ive been working on this piece of work for my AS in Art, and I was wondering if I could have some opinions for my final piece. This is my experimentation at the moment-
And this is what it looks like with text-
What do you think? Do you think that the text looks ok? If you're wondering, the image is a doll abstracted quite a lot and the words are all in italian. This is my first post with photos, so if they dont work please message me so I can try and sort it out. Thanks alot everyone,
