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!

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 came across this awesome crochet rug by Little Circus on >O<, and I feel really taken with it! I love the total mishmash of all kinds of colors and shapes! It’s great knit and crochet inspiration!

Photos are slowly trickling in from the Valentine’s 2009 craft swap, and there are some truly creative and amazing crafts. I really love the stuffed bird from recylced fabrics! Check them all out in our flickr group, and leave some comment love for the crafters:)

Awww, you posted MY bird creation! And you even complimented it! I feel all warm and fuzzy. I'm going to be giving (yes, GIVING!!!) away one of my birdie mobiles on my blog so be sure to check it out at www.reloveprojects.blogspot.com. Thank you!

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

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!

cuddly pin cushion

I saw these pin cushions on Penguin & Fish the other day, and I keep thinking about them! They are made by Lucy’s Locket, out of sweaters! I especially like the turtle, it just seems so cleverly designed! Though the beaver is so so cute! There are a ton of other animals on Lucy’s Locket, and I was amused and pleased to see that each pin cushion comes with the 3 beaded pins shown with them. :) Too dear!

I love the print on this tote! It reminds me a little bit of Elsita’s papercuts, and it would be pretty cute for keeping valentine’s too! Agree?

Hooray for Pattra! She made the absolutely adorable little shirt that Trixie is wearing below! You may remember Pattra from previous posts, as she is a grower of Shitake mushrooms, and a creator of things, like this cute ring, Free People wovens, and of course, awesome dog shirts! Thank you Pattra! You really made my day, and Trixie’s day especially!

Sara -Feb 11, 2009, 4:02PM

I frequent Elsa Mora‘s blog – I usually check it every day – so I already know that whenever she makes something, it’s going to be gorgeous. Her papercuts are carefully indexed in her papercut blog, which is a good hour of browsing fun at least, and her drawings and sculptures are so talented and inspiring! She has a lot of heart. Still, I was just blown away when I checked in today and saw her latest set of pins. They are so tiny, and so textured and intricate, and just so darn cute- I love them!
See more of Elsita’s fantastic artworks here and here, and you can visit her Etsy shop here!

What do you think of these fabric feathers that Sian Keegan makes? I’m really digging them! I love that they are made of scraps and sewn on pages!
