29 May

Yup, more needle felting! This past Tuesday, I taught a three hour needle-felting class at the Brooklyn Brainery. The students came up with these adorable creations.

crochet basket

I made this basket a few months ago at an open crafts night at the Kollabora headquarters in Soho, but I just got around to placing it in my apartment.  It’s the perfect holder for the roving wool that I’ve been working with lately.

To make: use thick yarn and single crochet a never-ending spiral.

Lately I’ve been on a new kick– needle felting.  It’s so much fun.  These creatures were time intensive, but well worth the effort.

a new take on friendship bracelets

16 Jul

friendship bracelet

Friendship bracelets are back!

I’ve spent hours of my childhood making friendship bracelets… and now hours of my adult life knotting away.  But this time I’ve added a twist– crimped ribbon ends and a toggle clasp connected by a few jump rings.  I consider this bracelet to be part of the next generation of friendship bracelets.

suitcase > dresser

11 Jul

I inherited a great vintage suitcase a few months ago and decided to make it into a mini dresser for winter hats and scarves.  I had extra sofa legs on hand, so all I needed were some nuts and washers.  Check out the final product!

Okay, full disclosure: The original intention for this suitcase was for it to be a cat bed.  Sadly, it was not accepted and became a mini dresser.
