Closed Cast On

FluffyKnitterDeb Turkish Cast On

Some time ago I found a cast on for knitting that makes a real little bag without seams.
Eehm…
;-)
She uses it e.g. for socks which are knitted up from the toes.

I knitted a little bag and it worked great.
When reading it I thought that I dont’t understand it at all but when I simply did what she wrote it worked without problem.
I immediately unraveled the little bag because I didn’t need any little bag – but I should have taken a photo at least ;-))

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 ;-))

Herringbone/Ndebele Necklace

unikatissima Herringbone Ndebele Necklace

Some time ago I made a Herringbone or Ndebele necklace.
I find it beautiful, it is wonderfully sleeky and simply elegant.
And I found the bead weaving itself downright relaxing.

To make sure that the necklace doesn’t look boring I simply made a little Peyote bead like for my paper beads bracelet, pulled it over the necklace and worked little bead fringes on the bead like for the pages 9 & 10 of my artist book – looots ;-)
Well, I like it ;-)

Necklace Bust

Home Jewelry Business Success Tips  Necklace Bust

If you have necklaces you can always do with something to hang them up, as e.g. the mini dress-form jewelry stand.
That’s something you can use the wonderful bust for.
But it is also something very special if you want to sell jewelry.

Incidentally I think that you can craft it a little smaller if you need a gift wrap or sales wrapping for your necklace.
If the bust is made as greeting card the necklace can directly be send with it!?

If you make such a bust I’d really appreciate a comment with a link (as I’m glad about every comment ;-))

Gummy Bear Bracelet

cutoutandkeep 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 ;-))
