things on the internet: tutorial edition
July 27th, 2011
This spring I stashed a few sticks to make hangers out of, but then the project fizzled. I wanted to find big hooks I could screw into the stick, sort of like extra large cup hooks. Only they don't make extra large cup hooks. Miss Maize Hutton had a better idea: just take the hook part off a wire hanger and use that. Now I have to go find those sticks. Maybe even crochet over some!
I know there are a bunch of tutorials for little girls' skirts out there, but this one by Hagar of Sepa Designs for the Charm Stitch blog is particularly lovely. The ribbon, pintuck, and elastic detail make for an extra special skirt. The beautiful Naomi Ito fabric doesn't hurt either.
The directions for this table are in (horribly translated) German, but you can kind of get the gist of it. And if you do, you'll have a fabulous table made out of 2x4s. I think this would make a very nice tall table for the entryway.
Is that skirt you bought made for 20 year olds? Add a little color block hem and you are good to go. Not being a big fan of knees, this is my favorite tutorial. She's got a tutorial for adding pockets as well!
I dont' know where we got those lick and stick play stamps when we were little, but they always were around. And they always had those fantastic 60's graphics on them. Most probably didn't make it into this century, but happily Terri has made a tutorial for you and your kids to make you own.
That should keep you busy. Have you found any good tutorials on the interwebs these days?
