7 things I want to make

Great ideas I want to try soon:

1) Braided headbands made of t-shirt yarn.

I have a lot of ready yarn to make them (no more baskets! :P) or I can use jersey leftovers from my making clothes projects.
I really like braids made with 4/5 strands and recently I have them on my feet (thank you, Ewa, for that lovely pair of mint braided sandals!!!)

Yummy! :)
If you live in Italy or other parts of Europe, probably you'll have difficulties in finding buttermilk, but you can replace it with a mix of milk and yogurt (50% milk + 50% yogurt).

4) Paper butterflies that fly (I had one of these toys when I was attending university):

5) Tin punched dragonflies, following lovely Pam's tutorial:

6) Fabric garlands to hang up to the window near my sewing table. I like flag garlands like this, but also scalloped garlands are lovely! And this crocheted chain of flowers, too! Oh, so many possibilities!

7) An alphabet embroidery sampler, similar to this one:

Have you other great projects to share with me?

    1. Thank you for these kind words about Italy.
      I suggest you to visit Sicily, the region where I live now... wonderful sea, baroque cities, archeological monuments, great food and wild nature :)

  2. That dragonfly is so cool! I think I smell an art lesson! I've done lots of printmaking with scraps of foam. I also really like that alphabet sampler. I haven't done a lot of embroidery and this is very inspiring. Such neat ideas!

  3. First of all - Thank you so, so much for including my dragonfly tutorial! Just put up a paper version for those who would rather not have their children playing with sharp metal edges!
    I feel like I am in very good company here among all these great posts!!! Definitely must make the lemon cream-sicles. My mouth is watering just writing that!!! And i absolutely must try out the styro-stamps! So totally perfect for kids don't you think - like you and like me!!!
