It’s Friday so that means that I’m back again with “You Sew Rock Me Fridays” that features 10 awesome projects that I happened to come across this week while surfing the World Wide Craft Web.
Andrea from Charcoal and Crayons came up with this Starfish Art. First of all I am crazy about anything with starfish…it’s kind of my thing to collect (well, stars in general too!). But I love how she uses ribbon to weave such an eye-popping background to display it on. Awesome!
Andrea also made this Framed Calendar with jute string using the same weave technique.
Amy from The Salvage Collection showed off the fabulous Monogram Letter that her son made. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE those stripes! Awesome work Tucker…Pottery Barn will be calling you up soon! I think it is awesome when kids get involved in the creative process. :)
Katy from Sweet Verbena shows how to make a Watermark Tee. I love new techniques! This looks wayyyy easier than Batik but gives a similar look. To get a two tone shirt, you can put the glue on, dye the shirt a dark color, rinse out the glue, then dye the shirt a light color.
Ok so my last project is actually several that revolve around stars…I went a little bit nuts because I looooooove stars! Ann from Making the Best of Things repurposed a metal 3D dollar store star into this Book Page Star.
If you don’t have a metal star, Kim from Craftaphile will teach you how to make a 3D paper star. She uses 2 sides for the star but you could definitely only use one if you wanted to with heavy enough paper.
So that’s what I got for ya this week…I hope you will agree these projects are as awesome as I think they are! Now go out and make something…Christmas is almost here! :)
