Tetrapak Coin Purse

Tetrapak Coin Purse

We’re drinking much apple juice and milk – and they come in tetrapaks. We must have ‘produced’ tons of it!
Therefore I love the idea of recycling at least on of them into an coin purse.

 

Tetrapak Coin Purse On the photo you see my first attempt (still without button): it’s such a nice idea :)

Bottlecap Pincushions

Bottlecap Pincushions

I really love those tiny pincushions, just like the Recycled Pincushion Ring.
Now I found a tutorial on how to make bottlecap pincushions – great!
A little Google research (websites and images) showed me that many people make such cute bottlecap pincushions.
Perhaps I will make one, too – one day? ;-)

Mokume Gane is an easy and (sometimes) fast technique to get wonderful and stunning results.

There’s not much I could say about Mokume Gane but be sure to check all links – and then simply try it! :)

Butterfly Loom

Butterfly Loom

At the website of Knitting-and.com where I found the Crazy Daisies I also found the Butterfly Loom.
As always I didn’t want to buy something without knowing if I will use it ever again and cut my butterfly loom in different sizes from cardboard as you can see on the photo.
It worked out very well, but although I’m always coming back to different kinds of weave I think I’d never be patient enough to actually create something with this technique. It’s a pity.
;-)
