These paper birthday flower rings by Tithi Kutchamuch and Nutre Arayavanish are so clever! Each ring resembles the birthday flower for one of the 12 months of the year, and you can get them all, or individually as a birthday card for your friend! I love it!

denim floor mat

I love the look of this floor mat, and to my delight, Instructables has easy directions for making your own – out of the old seams and waistbands from jeans! What a smart idea!

This is pretty neat. I think I'd probably use some sort of beaded or other fringe on the edges though. Neat idea.

I love this cool idea from Merel Karhof! They have built a machine that uses the power of the wind to knit a long scarf along the side of their building. Periodically they take down the long knitting and separate it into scarves, each with a label that tells how long it took to knit and when! Very awesome.

capri sun jacket!

Isn’t this a clever idea?! Sue of Sue’s Sewing and Happenings used a Vogue jacket pattern and quite a few empty Capri Sun juice packets to create this fun jacket! She looks really cute modeling it too! See a collage of her process here.

It took Wataru Itou, an art-student in Tokyo, four years to create this intricate paper castle! It’s called Umi no Ue no Oshiro, or Castle on the Ocean, and aside from the pretty lights, it features a ferris wheel and a moving train! Absolutely amazing.

The level of detail is truly amazing. I don't understand how someone can spend years doing something when I can barely make through an episode of the Simpsons

so much stuff similar to this has been popping up lately! the san fran toothpick or popsicle stick city model is pretty awesome too!

Aren’t these embroideries pretty? I really really like them! I feel like I’ve never seen any needlework like that before! I would love to have a shirt or a dress with any of the above designs on it! They were all created by the talented Renilde Depeuter. Sweet!

Hey FP! I´m a frequent reader of your blog and I really like FP clothes! Too bad I can´t buy then in Estonia. Anyway, I really like the ethnic touch in your pieces and I wanted to tell you about Estonian national costumes, because they are really beautiful and colourful! Maybe you get some inspiration from them too. Here are some links to some great Estonian designers´ sites who have used our traditional patterns: http://www.lviira.com/index.php?id=38 and also if you google a guy called Aldo Jarvsoo you can find some pics about his national costumes inspired works... And the greatest display of our national costumes is coming this weekend, when we have our huge song festival with tens of thousands of singers and spectators! Here´s a clip from the last one, two years ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8as6Q9pYmI (and a couple of years ago there was also an american documentary made, called "The Singing Revolution", if somebody is interested). Wish you all the best and greeting from Estonia where we are preparing our costumes for the festival once again :)!

YUM!

How delicious do these chocolate banana pops look?! I’m getting ready to try and make some! Katie Goodman has a really simple recipe for them Craftzine that I’m going to use! Hooray for cold chocolate banana treats!

I made them this weekend with chocolate drizzle and mini chocolate chips. SOOO good!

honbachi

These honbachi, or book pots, were created by graphic designers Tokyo Pistol. I really like how they look! I feel like it would be really easy to make one on your own with an old disheveled book, but one perk of buying one from Tokyo Pistol would that the old book you got would be in Japanese! Check out the bindings on the books stacked in the picture! Pretty sweet…

knit a bikini top

I’m really excited to try out this tutorial from ThreadBanger– it shows how to knit your own bikini top! They go along very slowly and explain clearly what to do! The only thing is that there is a quick advertisement in the middle, but it’s worth it because the tutorial is good. If you need a little basic knitting instruction first, check out our learn-to-knit videos here, here, and here!

3-d collages

Cut-Out_Collection_%28Black%20And%20White%29_web.jpg
These collages by Sarah Bridgland really caught my eye! To make them she uses all kinds of discarded paper, stationary, old books, newspapers, comics, you name it. The old staple boxes used for these particular pieces are really cool too!

That is so cool! It looks like a 3D comic book explosion!

These little brownie burgers and sugar cookie fries are so adorable! And tasty looking! Bakerella has a fantastic tutorial that you should definitely check out if you’re in a baking mood! She even has templates to create the tray and french fry holder! I can’t wait to try it out, maybe this weekend!
