Jewelry Cake Stand
Believe it or not, I actually have like, 7 jewelry stands. One of which is just the empty space on my desk which I suppose makes it no longer empty space. So here we are, another place to store my piles of jewelry. For this marvelous cake stand you will need, some saucers/plates, some glass things (They can be anything from bottles to whisky glasses), and glue. I used PVA, but for the impatient people out there I’d recommend the trusty glue gun as your weapon of choice.
Enjoy the stand and don’t break it. Hide it from small children/cats.
I love envelopes. Sure, I may not have anyone to send letters to, but you can never have enough envelopes. These ones are made with a Frankie magazine; chosen for it’s retro photos and pictures, + I had a double up. This is not your cue to go and snatch magazines from family members, as that could be classified as unkind behavior.
Okay, Step one.
Get a magazine page and and an old envelope to take apart and use as a stencil. Make sure it fits the page! As you can see, mine barely did.
Trace your brand new stencil onto your page.
Cut it out.
Fold it up, using your stencil as a guide.
Stick it together, using whatever you fancy. I Used slim double sided tape, but I’m quite sure glue will not completely wreck your envelope.
Now the real challenge. Actually finding a use for all these froody retro envelopes.
Knitted Cat Beanie.
It’s a well known fact that knitting is a hobby reserved for the elderly, or people with far too much time on their hands. All over the internet I find people claiming to have finished their billionth scarf. How do you finish a scarf without dying of boredom, I wonder? Let me tell you, knitting is a huge waste of time. I have been knitting the same scarf for 2 years. That top photo? It’s my progress report.
Should I have stuck my hand in for comparison? I don’t know. Clearly, I have little future in photography. As you can see however, this is overly time consuming. So, for all those fail knitters out there, the time is nigh to join my club. Today I will show you how to turn all those half made scarves into beanies that offer great assistance in impersonating cats.
Knit yourself something resembling an oblong. Mine measures (42cm) by (21cm).Keeping in mind, this has taken me years, so by no means should you be finished in a day. As you also can see, my excellent project management led me to believe I had another ball of red wool. I was wrong.
Fold said oblong in half. Using whatever technique you desire, sew up the top and one side, creating some form of pouch. You may want to turn it inside out in effort to hide shabby hand sewing like I did.
Wear your beanie instead of a sleeping bag.
Don’t be too surprised if you never manage to finish your own beanie; I was frankly surprised to find I even remember how to knit.
