Watermelon Carving

BuzzFeed Rebecca E Watermelon Carving

I’ve presented the Baby Melon before, as this watermelon carved swimmer shows you can make much more with watermelon carving.
The swimmer is only one of 75 presented carved watermelons, look also at the others, they’re really amazing! :)

Again something interesting with melon: the jelly melon.
In the tutorial it is made with Vodka, but I think that it is also a fun and yummy idea without alcohol :)

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 ;-)
