the lineup for this year’s coachella music festival was announced yesterday…and man i really wish i could go. but check out this poster…i think they’re getting a little extreme with the varying font sizes, don’t you? yes, i know that the larger bands are “headliners” but still, i had to take a second look to even notice some of the smaller bands that are playing. actually, i’m more interested in some of the ones you can barely see…like les claypool, edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros, girls, beach house, deerhunter and big pink. apparently, fader was on the same wavelength as me…check out their funny article about the poster here.
the lineup still looks amazing though…if you’re having trouble reading it above, check it out here. what do you all think? anyone going to go?
i really want to try and make a rag rug. i’ve been looking around online for tutorials on how to do it, and i’m so inspired just by pictures of them! i think they’re so beautiful and a perfect way to use up any fabric you might have lying around.
these images are from the rag rug flickr group (yes, there is one)…check it out here…believe me, you will be inspired.
apparently there are several ways to make a rag rug…some tutorials involve crocheting, like this one on vintage chica. but if you don’t know how to crochet (like me) you can still make a rag rug just by braiding the fabric!
moda bake shop has a really great tutorial showing you step by step how to do it. once you’ve picked out the fabric you want to use, cut it into long strips and just start to braid! start at the center of the rug and work your way outwards, forming a circle with your braid as shown in the images above. once you’ve finished, just sew the rows of braids together! for the full tutorial click here.
i just posted part two of our new store playlist, which includes the classic INXS song “never tear us apart” …and in an interesting coincidence, the music video for the song was shot in prague! check it out:
it’s warm and sunny in philly today…making me wish spring was here already. so does this image for our beach collection. i loved it so much i wanted to share it…just click on the image to go to our flickr page and download!
oh and check out all our cool, comfy beach stuff here.
well everyone…the time has come for us to choose our next book for the free people book club! this time around we want you to vote…we picked six books from the list of suggestions we got from our readers, a few of which many of you recommended. check them out, and vote for your top choice!
with martin luther king, jr. day falling in the wake of the tragedy in haiti, the words of dr. king seem especially poignant…and remind us to think about what we can do, not just in a time of need like now, but on a daily basis, to make the world a better place.
