1  Re: Rapunzel, rapunzel, let down your hair! (scarf) in Craftalongs by mirandaest on: July 01, 2006 07:02:31 PM
I was blown away by the beautiful scarves all you girls made, so I just had to make one myself.

I made this one with a mix of gray and blue. The colors remind me of dark, stormy days. I braided four strands instead of three and used a mix of natural and wool yarns of all sorts and satin ribbons. Instead of knotting the ends, I used one piece of the yarn to wrap and tie them. I also did a black and pink Rapunzel scarf and knitted a matching skinny scarf to go with it they can be worn together or separately and posted that as my June pink project in the Colour Craftalong:

These scarves are so fun to make. Thanks for the inspiration everyone!

wow...it is gorgeous and i love it. i'm very interested in making a mosaic like this...i just have one question..i'm super new to this website and to crafting...all the marbles and broken glass that you used...was it already colored? or do you use paint at all? thanks...is there anyway you could send maybe a closer picture or something, i'm just trying to figure out exactly how you did this.

thanks =) and good job, it looks awesome!!

Thanks, jazzinjenny! The glass that I used was already colored. I suspect that paint would not hold up to the grouting process and most likely would rub off. The glass I used came from craft stores, the internet and from my own recycling. Some was already in pieces, some I cut from sheets or trimmed, some I smashed myself. I'll try to remember to take some pictures while I'm working on my next mosaic. Until then, here's a closeup of one part of the mosaic. This is before I did my final sponge and cleanup, so the grouting still looks a little rough. I hope this helps!

This is my first time posting a completed project, so forgive me if I mess up!

Im going through a rough breakup and needed something to occupy my mind that was vaguely cheerful, so I did this transparent glass mosaic. Its meant to be hung in front of a window, but I havent had time to buy the right gauge chain the finished project is very heavy! It measures 20.5 inches by 14 inches and really glows when the sun shines through. I hope you all enjoy it!
