1  New to felting, is it possible to make ridges? in Felting: Discussion and Questions by jeha on: November 25, 2012 08:57:57 AM
Hi, I just started felting and am having a great time needle felting different kinds of mushrooms. I made a chanterelle and the shape is right but If I could make the characteristic ridges on the underside of the cap and stem, It would be perfect. Here is a picture of a real chanterelle I found for reference.

I was thinking I could try embroidery floss. but I was just wondering if there was a better needle felting technique to create ridges.

2  Chai Tea! from scratch, I'm hooked luckily the recipe made 2.5 quarts in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jeha on: November 11, 2012 11:44:47 AM
I made some chai tea yesterday, so worth making from scratch. It is the best chai I have ever had.

This cookbook is amazing as well It has about a million recipes from all across India and all that I have tried have been excellent. Some of them are a little daunting though with exotic hard to find ingredients, and even the cooking techniques are unfamiliar. That's one of the reasons I decided to make the Masala Chai Tea, i had all the ingredients on hand and it is a simple process, although more involved than I would have thought. You boil for exact amounts of times before adding ingredients. Seems a little fussy, but the end result is amazing.
If you like chai I would strongly recommend making it from scratch at least once. It is delicious, comforting and exotic at the same time.

3  Simple yet elegant pasta recipe, glad I remembered this one in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jeha on: November 10, 2012 08:38:53 PM
I recently remembered a pasta recipe that I hadn't used in a while. It's just as easy and delicious as I remember

All you need is
can of Roma tomatoes
kalamata olives
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper

Just crush tomatoes and mix everything together except Parmesan. Use a fair amount of EVO and salt and pepper. Then while your pasta is cooking just heat your sauce up add cooked pasta and cook together until not runny. Top with shaved Parmesan.
It is so good. Its so simple but delicious. Food magic.

For a step by step check my blog.http://makingmpls.blogspot.com/2012/11/fast-foodie-friday-easy-pasta-dinner-in.html
Thanks for looking!

Hi everyone, I just posted my template on my blog, so that you can make your very own matchbooklet without a Vintage Matchbook!
I used scrap paper and a empty six pack carton.

5  Small Book Made from Vintage Matchbook(Now No Matchbook necessary!) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: February 14, 2012 09:10:08 PM
I was just recently admiring these tiny books https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=402443.0 and planning to make my own. When I went to find some light cardboard to use, I came up empty handed. So my brain churned up this Idea for me to make instead. A book made from a vintage matchbook. I call it the matchbooklet.

I love how it turned out! I made another one from scratch, as in no matchbook just using thin packaging cardboard, and with more pages that also turned out cool.(will post later)
I have a tutorial on my blog for the matchbooklet if you are interested.

6  Collage, it was going to be a card but ended up too large, now it is wall art. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: February 07, 2012 04:40:58 PM
I made this for my hubby and my daughter for valentine's day.

Not sure how it ended up to be fish themed, but I like how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

7  Ugly Christmas sweater nomore, cute legwarmers for sis in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: December 27, 2011 03:53:52 PM
I gave my sister these legwarmers for Christmas to help her spread cheer wherever she goes. Been waiting to post this until after I had given them to her, so as not to spoil the surprise. These were super easy to make. The hardest part is getting your hands on an oversized holiday sweater, as they are getting more popular to wear. At least around here.

For a brief how to and a picture of the sweater before, here is my blog page about it

9  cozy fleece cowl made from bottom of ill fitting shirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeha on: December 13, 2011 12:25:27 PM
I love cowls, I have been planning on knitting one, but then I was inspired to make this one out of  a thermal t shirt that was too small and a scrap of fleece I had on hand.

I really love it, it is soft and cozy, like a blanket for your neck. So if you have any t-shirts and fleece laying around, I would suggest making yourself one. Super easy and fast to sew up. I am sure most of you can figure out how I made it but If you are interested I posted a tutorial on my blog.

10  Sriracha....its for christmas. Recycled sriracha bottle ornament! in Winter Holidays by jeha on: December 13, 2011 12:40:50 AM
Recently I was admiring a bottle of sriracha.  Soooo pretty and Christmas colors too. I just knew I had to make something with the bottle. Luckily I work at a place that uses sriracha like crazy so I brought a empty bottle home to contemplate, and this it what I came up with.

The tree is the bottle top and puff paint.

this part is the front of the bottle ironed "flat", and red felt, green yarn.
The two pieces will be connected and hang over a branch on a Christmas tree. I will post action photo's once the paint dries. I was too excited not to share the results right away.
Also I want to add a star to the top of the tree.  does anyone have any suggestions on what to make it out of?
