Hey kids, it’s Friday again so that means another installment of “You Sew Rock Me Fridays” with 10 awesome projects that I happened to come across this week while surfing the World Wide Craft Web. Some are old, some are new, all are borrowed but none will make you blue! Ok, that was corny…
Many of the projects I choose tend to be technique related, but I have been looking hard for projects that would be fun and easy gifts so I will to try to mix in some more of these ideas from now until Christmas.
Erin from Dog Under My Desk made these Circle Zip Earbud Pouches. Um, fan-tab-u-lous! This is actually one of the first projects that I “StumbledUpon”. If you haven’t Stumbled yet, look it up. But I have to warn you that it is just as addicting as Pinterest!
I can’t tell you how much I love these for the simple fact that they are easy and incredibly useful. It frustrates me to no end that everytime I pull out my ipod (I’m rockin’ the dinosaur generation 3) the headphones are all tangled. Sooooo frustrating. I keep meaning to do something about it but I don’t. Now I have a solution. I have also been deciding what to make my nieces and nephews for Christmas and this is perfect! I can’t wait to make a bunch.
If you want to DIY your clay, you can try the air-dry recipe I found from Busy Bee Kids Crafts that will probably work. If anyone makes this clay, let me know if you like it or not. I will have to give it a whirl sometime.
Be sure to check out the member project gallery below because they actually did the embossing with heavy weight aluminum foil and double-sided duct tape. Very interesting.
Katie from Matsuke made these absolutely gorgeous DIY Moroccan Lamps. I think it would be even better if you could use the glass cutting technique to cut off the rim of the jar. Or you could possibly even cover it with clay and paint over it…that way you wouldn’t see the threads.
Well, there you go…I hope you will agree these projects are as awesome as I think they are! Now go out and make something :)
