Wonderful Idea! I wish I would have known about it years ago.
Nice! Zippered backs make sweaters much more interesting.
Thanks, I'm now on the hunt.
That is a great solution!
Thanks for the reply! Wouldn't some of them only be in a gas state? I admit that I only ever got C's in chemistry :)
Last May, I set out to make my mother-in-law a journal for our road trip to Yellowstone National Park. I researched everything I could find over the course of a week, absorbing and combining all the techniques and ideas together, and eventually made a journal, and subsequently made my own Instructable of the process months later. I just stumbled upon this again and remembered how helpful it was (I remember it was definitely the best I found on the old internet!). If fact, seeing this again, I can see just how much this influenced mine. So, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! :)
I love the pattern is inside too! So cheery!
Fun! Can you actually get samples of everything for the vials?
Advent Calendars are the best! I really like your method. Punching through the paper seems infinitely more fun than opening a drawer or draw string bag. And little sneaky cheaters can't peek ahead. :)
Max! I couldn't remember his name. Maybe a fake chimney, with Max pulling a Christmas tree up and out of it. :)
Thanks for the quick response. I'll keep my eye out for them on my next trip to the store. :)
Awesome! This would work well for keeping crumbs from escaping too. Thanks for sharing!
This is fantastic! I think adding his dog would be a nice touch too.
Yummy! You got my vote!
Yummy!Question: Black sesame seeds; do they taste different, or is it just for contrast with the dough?
This is genius!!!
This is my kind of fudge! More caramel, less chocolate. I didn't know they sold caramel in a tin/can. I've never seen it in the US, but then again, I've never looked for it.
I love the little flower one, it looks like a miniature lei for a finger. Funny- I saw the Tyre Wrench in the picture and was wondering how in the heck that was going to come into play. :)
It turned out lovely and looks adorable on your little girl!
I always love seeing an alternative way to construct something. Thanks for sharing!
That owl is just too cute to eat!

Love the cigar! It was a nice touch.
Adorable! Well done!
Ha Ha! I love this! Great idea!
What an interesting idea to produce a plaid! I'm going to have to try that with knitting. I like the loopy side too. Those loops would make a nice rug for the rug contest.... :)
I love the gradations. Beautiful work.
Thank you for including multiple sizes for this fun hat.
So pretty. I love the basket weave.
Thanks for posting this helpful information. I'm pretty sure you saved me from making the worlds largest ball of felted, tangled and color mangled yarn. :) Did you have any misshaps, or did you arrive at this method first thing?
These are so cute. I love the idea of using them as little face scrubbies.
Thanks for your work in recreating and documenting these adorable little guys. I love the cheery yellow background too!
Wonderful Idea! Thanks for sharing. It is now on my todo list.
Sweet and simple. :)
Aww, looks like he loved it. So cute. :)
It has been years since I have made bracelets similar to this. I always used embroidery floss, but I think I like the bulk and look of the yarn better. Nice work!
I love your choice of a lighter colored yarn on a dark background. Lovely.
I agree, it would be interesting and heart warming to see how people interpret that as a challenge theme. It would likely bring awareness to all kinds of things most of us don't even have on our radar.
2017 Contest and Challenge Marathon- submit something for every contest and challenge run in 2017. It would be brutal! And it might force you to learn something new (IoT, what the heck is that?). All those that cross the finish line should get an awesome 2017 Trophy or Patch.
I love the look of this! What a fun technique!
Wow! Glue? Crazy! I was not expecting that. Consider me thoroughly impressed. :)
Amazing! Thank you for posting this, I filed away in my mind a host of new techniques and ideas. :)
Thanks for the great answer! What is floral adhesive? Can I get it at a normal craft store, or would I need to special order it?
Thanks!!! I just keep imagining it done with fragrant real flowers. Maybe this spring when all my lilac bushes are blooming I'll give it a go.Ha! Ha! Don't know where I would wear it though. I can imagine my neighbors giving me strange looks as I take the recycling out. :)
The pocket grill
Welcome to Knitting
Do you think this could be done with fresh flowers?
I'm interested in the wool pad you use for applying dye. Where do you get it? Can it be reused? I'm new to leather work, and at first I tried to use those little wool dauber wire sticks, but I found them to be completely inadequate when trying to cover a surface area larger than a few square inches. I've been using paper towels, but those have their own set of limitations. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
I adore the finish on this! It has inspired me to give tooling a second try; I usually write it off as too cowboy for my tastes. Amazing Instructable as usual. :)
Thanks for your quick reply! I will now be on the hunt for them.
I think your use of the compass is genius! I just realized the wording in my comment wasn't very clear. I meant it as, "I was wondering, but now that I've read this instructable, I now know." It would have been good to know a couple of years ago when I was trying to get a template to cut out a map that I wanted to glue patches and mementos to inside a coffee tumbler. I could never get it quite right, and just shoved everything in unfinished so I wouldn't loose it. With your idea, I dug it out of the cupboard, and intend to take another stab at it. :)
Amazing! I especially liked the use of the plastic witches caldron.

Thanks! I am making a coffee cozie, and while I'm just going to use a Starbucks paper sleeve as the template, I was wondering how to go about doing it without one. :)
This is hilarious!!! Nice work. :)
So adorable! I love the open holes on the scarf body.
This makes me wish I had more fingers! :)
Wow! I would love to see a picture of your whole winter village lit up. :)

I can't wait to make these for my nephew! Thanks!

It smelled amazing though :)
Thanks! If you are interested, I also experimented with beeswax cut with a bit of coconut oil and cocoa butter to soften the beeswax and make it more pliable. It worked, but not quite as well.
These are so cute! I think they would make an equally cute pin cushion. :)
Interesting technique that produces a nice texture. Thanks for sharing!
Clever use of hot glue! :)
I think spiraling is an excellent idea! Originally I was going for a more seamless look, so spiraling wasn't on my radar, but with how it turned out, I think your suggestion would be the ideal method. :)
I love all the details and the way the butterfly really look like they are flying around. I have to admit that the giant nose is a bit disorientingthough. I wasn't quite sure what I was looking at until I scrolled down and saw the process.

I have to agree with Swansong, SO ADORABLE! I'm convinced that if you poked them in the belly they would giggle like the Pillsbury Doughboy, and then bite your finger and gleefully drink your blood. :)
This really made me smile. I'm fond of the whole look. Thanks for posting!
How to Extract Your Own DNA Using Household Kitchen Items
Thanks for the idea! I have one of those cardboard concrete forms sitting on my back porch, irritating me every time I look at it, because I havent been sure what to do with it.My eyes keep fixating on the diamond cubby hole shape between the circles. It reminds me of a 1950's diamond star pattern, and I keep imagining the diamond cubbies painted a bright glossy 1950's diner red. :)
How To: Make Bath Bombs
O my goodness! I am so enamored with these. I do question whether those slits on the back of the heel will cause blisters though. On the one hand, I see how they will make the shoe more comfortable, but in a worst case senecio, I can see them acting as the nubs on a cheese grater, mutilating the back of the foot with every step.
I absolutely LOVE the look of this! With chunky yarn and giant needles, I might actually be able to complete this project with my limited attention span. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks! It was really fun and rewarding. I am going to be experimenting more with elastic and maybe a cardboard heddle for different patterns. I was actually thinking of you; weaving over elastic might be a good way for you to make your corsets.
Sew your own pattern weights
Thanks! I'm going to have to give these a try. :)
