Introducing today’s treat…(drumroll goes here)…cake donuts! The healthier way to enjoy donuts.
I didn’t add any additional flavor to the donut itself, but it is glazed and garnished with pink sugar pearls. ;)
Introducing….my cream puffs and fruit tarts!
These are vanilla cream puffs with a chocolate filling…
…and these are my fruit tarts; filled with lemon custard and with strawberries on top!
As you can see, I’m going through my cooking phase, but I am working on a side project right now, which I will show you guys in a few weeks. ;)
This friendship bracelet may look extremely hard to make, but it’s actually very easy!
Supplies you’ll need…
I used a tape measure, pliers, colored string (yarn, etc. will work too), closures, a brown cord, and a pair of sharp scissors. The closures are optional, therefore the pliers are optional; you may choose to knot your ends instead.
1) Cut out two different pieces of colored string, each about 200 cm long; cut out a length of the cord, about 75 cm long (length may change due to wrist size). Fold all three in half, and either knot it of secure it with a closures. Place two strands of one color on the right and one on the left. Leave the cord in the middle.
The green string will represent String A, and the blue will represent String B.
2) Make the first stitch by placing String B on the left side of the cord, and under String A. Then bring String A under the cord, and up through the loop that String B made. Pull on both strings.
Notice how after the first stitch, String B is now on the left side and String A is on the right. To do the next stitch, just repeat the first one, using String A as String B and vice versa.
Now with a little work done…
3) When you have reached your desired length, just knot off the end, or end it with a closure (like I did).
To alter this design, use different colors, or materials to give the bracelet a different texture or look.
Hello, it’s Friday the Thirteenth, today! Good luck to all of you…and remember to wear black! :)
Don’t worry…they aren’t posionous…
Supplies you’ll need…
For this toadstool, I used white felt, green felt, a pair of sharp scissors, white thread, cotton (polyester fiberfill), split peas (dried beans, rice, etc will work too), pins, and a sewing needle.
It’s not the best because I drew it all in one go, with the marker, so the lines are a bit jagged. There are four ‘mushroom cap dots’, but one of them doesn’t even go on the mushroom cap :P
1) Cut out the pattern (draw your own, or print one from online), then pin it on the felt. Cut the felt. You should have seven pieces in total.
All of the pieces are white, except for one of the mushroom cap circles.
2) Sew on three of the mushroom cap dots, one of each size, on the green mushroom cap piece.
3) Sew the green mushroom cap and the white mushroom cap together. Leave a hole to stuff cotton in between the pieces, then sew up the hole.
4) Sew the mushroom stem piece, so that it looks like a tube. Then, sew last mushroom cap dot on the bottom of the ‘tube’.
5) Stuff the mushroom stem one-third of the way up with the split peas. Stuff the rest with cotton.
6) Sew the top of the stem to the bottom of the mushroom cap. Try to sew it in the center; the mushroom/toadstool will stand better this way.
Ta-da! Your very own Mushroom/Toadstool!!!
Have fun making mushrooms/toadstools!!! :D
