Tell us about yourself!
I'm really impressed with this. Since you have lots of vinyl for future projects, I'll give you my tip for sewing on vinyl. You know how the vinyl wanted to stick to the presser foot, so it was kinda hard to feed it through? What helps is putting some invisible scotch tape on the underside of the presser foot. It helps allow the vinyl to slide.

Wonderful idea and good instructible!
That is ridiculously fantastic!!!
That is incredible! I'm not a woodworker, but the slice/put back together reminds me of some quilting techniques.
Lots of very efficient batching tips! I was wondering, do you make the ties cut on the bias, or do you cut them straight of grain? I wondered if straight of grain ties worked okay. Thanks for what you're doing!
I'd have never guessed this was made from a mixed lot of "ugly" and old yarns. The way you combined the threads makes each square sing! You should be very proud of this piece. It is truly a work of art!
Those are positively gorgeous, and the process is fascinating to watch!
Very well written. I really like the assurances ("they will be fine") about variances, and that you give instructions for someone without a dehydrator.
This is adorable and fun! When my daughter was little, hunting for penny squishing machines was her favorite thing to do when going anywhere new.
My grandson will enjoy this trick. Thank you for posting!
This looks beautiful! What sizes of bags did you use?
I have not seen this before, and I totally want to make one! It would look awesome as part of bookshelf decor, or propped on a shallow bowl on a coffee table. I could get into the zen. Thanks for the instructable!
I had no idea! Thank you for this well written instructable.
I think for wart removal, Your Mileage May Vary. Worked in 10 days for me, and wart never reappeared. As stated in the instructible, no one really knows how or why it works, nor why sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. Always worth a try, though!
Forgot to add that without the lining, this would be great for some events in our area where only see-through bags are allowed to expedite security screenings.
If this is what you produce when you're in a hurry, I can't imagine what you would make if you took more time (although being a seamstress, I can tell this was a lot of work!) I love absolutely everything about this: machine sewing the design in plastic, punching holes for hand sewing, sewing the belt with a pliers (been there, done that!) and making your own binding from a t-shirt. I could not be more impressed.
This is a great project, an excellent instructible, and the skeleton hands are delicious icing on the cake!
You did an amazing job, not only with a great tool restoration and instructible, but as a labor of love and a beautiful tribute to a man. The logo is priceless. I would have never thought of making one up, but it is so perfect. I am in awe of your work and tenacity facing multiple disasters. I do especially appreciate the sharing of mistakes on instructibles rather than pretending they didn't happen. It helps us all learn by them, and to understand that complex processes rarely go exactly as planned.
Fantastic idea. We are currently building and painting cabinet and drawer parts, and this will help a lot!
What are you spraying on the superglue?
This is my absolute favorite type of Instructible! I love learning processes that can be applied across many situations. My previous laundry basket repair was: drilling small holes on either side of the crack, joining with twist ties, gluing over the spaces with plastic bread tabs, then covering the whole repair with duck tape. Ugly, but stayed put for about 10 years. NOW they're going to get welded!!!
This made my day. Thank you!!!
We mix coffee grounds with coconut oil for this scrub, and it is amazing! Especially good to exfoliate legs prior to shaving.
This would also be handy for drinking soda on the beach; it would keep sand and bugs out, plus offer a sturdier base than a can.
That is ridiculously awesome! I like tedious work, so I think I could enjoy this. Thanks for the great instructions!
That is very cool (ha ha.) Makes me hope I need to move something heavy outside just so I can use that trick!
I need to break up some concrete. Freezing sounds better than a sledgehammer!
Your table is gorgeous! Thank you for being willing to graciously share the mistakes as well. Your instructable would be much less helpful if you tried to pretend everything went smoothly!
This is one of the best instructables I've ever read (not just on bread, I mean on anything.) It is precise, well-illustrated, and downright humorous to boot. Hats off to you!
