map-like quilts

I saw these gorgeous map quilts by Leah Evans on Design Crisis, and I am really impressed with them! I love maps, I love quilting, it’s a great combination! They sure look like they’d be difficult to make, though worth it! To see more of Leah’s work, check out her site, and for more interesting quilts, see here, here, and here.

awesome picture idea

I love that all the lights in these pictures are hearts! Color Me Katie did it by cutting out a little heart on a piece of paper and putting it over her camera lens. I would never have thought that the outcome would be lights turned to hearts! It would be cool to try with other shapes…

wool and the gang

First of all, how amazing is that name?!
Wool and the Gang is a group of knitters selling Crazy Sexy Wool from Peru and making clothing and accessories. They were just in New York during fashion week for an opening on Bond Street that attracted attention from lots of the celebrities in town for the shows like Erin Wasson, Mary Kate, and Peaches Geldof (You can see the party photos on their blog.)
There is much exploring to be done on their website for knitting projects, accessories, wool, and inspiration!

This little crochet necklace by Pretty Penny is so cute, and I’m really excited because it turns out she has a tutorial on how to make it on her blog! Check it out if you like the necklace too – I can’t wait to start on mine!

I would have never ever thought of using pop can tabs to make clothes, but Tiffany of The Art of Can Tabistry sure did! The corset made of can tabs is actually really cool! I’d totally wear it around, but I think I’d pick different colors for the yarn. Above is Tiffany’s mother modeling a hat, corset, and shoes made of can tabs! Holy cow! I don’t think I’ll ever look at tabs the same way. There are a few tutorials on The Art of Can Tabistry too, so if you’ve got a bunch of pop can tabs laying around…

DIY snow globes

I’m really digging this idea from fra(a)iing! She used water, glitter, some small cute jars, some plastic animals and waterproof glue to make these snow globes! You could really go wild with this idea, and put sequins, little jewelry or all kinds of things in a snow globe! I love it!

elaine -Aug 13, 2009, 8:21AM
they are so cute!!! i love snow globes and they're hard to come by here in the philippines. i hope she won't mind if i try to make one myself.
Mack -Feb 24, 2009, 3:04PM

Aren’t these little knit sushi so cute and delicious-looking? I love them! You can get the pattern to knit some yourself from NeedleNoodles. Clever!

I love this phone charger! Wires can get so tiresome and ugly – I love that MicroWorks turned the wire into a vine! However, they are not selling these chargers, but who cares? I’m going to make it a point to hit up my nearest craft store in the next few days, buy some fake flowers and leaves, and turn my phone charger into a beautiful flower vine! Easy! And pretty!

Kia -Feb 16, 2009, 9:03PM
I love this idea! I want to try it because it seems pretty easy
dez -Feb 16, 2009, 11:00AM
I am totally going to do this to all of my wires that show! I have really pretty led star lights lined around my dresser and it looks so pretty minus the cord that shows but this is brilliant! thanks for sharing!
