Tea Dyed Doily Scarf

flickr myauntdebbie - Doily Scarf

I must confess that in fact I like to crochet doilies – but I don’t want to have them, because I don’t have a clue about what to do with them ;-).
That’s perhaps the reason why I like so much putting together things from squares or the like ;-))

Well, now I can make me such a doily scarf ;-)
I think that you can very well hand-dye it with tea or coffee.

Homemade Lip Gloss

craftster Lip Gloss

I always have dry lips, sometimes more, sometimes less, but always dry.
Therefore I was glad to find the self-made lip gloss, because I will know what the ingredients are.
However I was a little unsure concerning the quantity of the ingredients, so I looked for more lip gloss recipes.
I think that the ‘Basic Lip Gloss Formula’ on the page was used for the lip gloss on the photo.

Let’s see how it works on my lips ;-))

Gummy Bear Bracelet

I wanted to present the gummy bear bracelet for a long time already and now I managed to do it ;-)
However I didn’t make it yet because I still want to lose weight and I’m afraid that they could ‘disappear’ before I can varnish them ;-))

But it works similarly to the gummi candy lamp that I haven’t made yet for the same reason ;-))

Tie-dye Rice

Sakurako Kitsa Tie-dye Rice

Recently the term ‘Bento‘ (a single-portion meal to take away) came up again and I decided to present today the tutorial on how to make ‘cloudy sky’ rice.

Up until now I have never made such a beautiful meal because it’s much too time-consuming for my liking. Instead I spent hours on looking at photos of Bento’s of other people ;-))

I don’t think that I will make the blue rice because I guess that it wouldn’t look so appetizing when served with green and red pappers and brown fish sticks.
But perhaps in pale yellow? ;-))

Homemade Paint Recipes

unikatissima Homemade Paint Recipes

Via one of my most preferred check-this-out blogs art for housewives I found a website with homemade paint recipes.
I liked best that they are made with stuff from household and tempera paint or food colouring.

On the photo you see some of the ingredients I already gathered, but unfortunately I don’t have no tempera paint nor food colouring at home.
Still to purchase :)

Recycled Yarns

Recycled Yarns

I really like to crochet (ok, to knit also, but not soo much ;-)).
Anyhow, the yarns are quite expensive.
Therefore I was thrilled when I found the article ‘Recycling yarn / Unravelling thrift store sweaters’. In addition I found a tutorial on how to unravel a sweater.
Equipped with this new know-how I am anxious for the next thrift store visit ;-))
And then I will see to it to get some Kool-Aid or other food colouring to dye my newly achieved yarns myself as taught (amongst others) by knitty.com.
And if it works well, I will give self-made self-striping yarn a try (found via ‘Watermelon Socks’).
This will be better than my previously mentioned coloured yarns. And I think as much fun as the other recycled yarn made from plastic bags.

I’m curious about when I will find the time (and the place! ;-)) to do all this, but it is fixed on my to-do and to-try lists ;-)
