1 Jul

You NEED to make these (and then you need to say VOILA, obviously).

After you make them, you NEED to take them on adventures.

Mommy Parking Cone Brushes up on her Pop Culture

 

After this, you NEED to give your parking cones to a child (I’m giving mine to my nephew) or else people will start to refer to you as “That Crazy Parking Cone Lady.”

THE END.

Oh, and here are the pattern links:

Free Pattern Friday: Hemp Market Bag

15 Apr

Finally!  Something you can make out of hemp that won’t brand you a friend of The Dude!

...that sounds exhausting, man...

You’ll need:

-some hempy hemp from hemp town

– a 3.75mm (F) hook

1: ch5, sl st to form a ring

2: *ch 11, sc into loop* 5 times

3: *ch11, sc in the 6th ch of the next loop, ch 11, sc in the sc*

4: *ch 11, sc in the 6th ch of the next loop*

5: repeat row 4 eight times & FO.

Now for the drawstring/handle!

1: ch 60, turn.

2: ch1, dc across, FO.

3: weave through your bag in the second row from the top.  When finished, sew the ends of the drawstring together to form a continuous loop.  Once you pull the drawstring closed, you’ll have enough left over for a neat little handle!

mmm... tomatoes and parmesean...

Safety Dance

14 Mar

I’ve been on a bead kick.  My cousin Jess made me this awesome bracelet that she swears will align my chakras and turn me all zen and stuff.

 

Buddah beads = beautiful!

Isn’t it awesome?  You should totally get her to make you one.  She’s got a website and everything!

So I figured I’d give this whole beady bracelety thing a try.  I discovered a billionty-seven safety pins in my bead box.  I put on some music.

I failed miserably.

 

If I put it on a candle it becomes awesome, right?

I tried again.

 

St. Patrick's Day Fail.

Third time’s a charm, right?

 

Wrong.

*Sigh*

If you were in third grade this would be cool, right?

…Right?…

 

…second grade?…

 

Anyway, I suppose I’ll leave the jewelry making to the jewelry makers and get back to the crochety side of the universe.  Also, someone should really take away my safety pin stash  before I turn it into a lamp or something…
