Creaftivity


A collection of crafty and creative projects that I may choose to pursue at a later time.

DIY Taking In a Sweater with a Back Zipper Tutorial from Cotton & Curls here. No cutting, just sewing a zipper in. Really love this tutorial. *I posted something similar from Trash to Couture: Asymmetrical Front Zipper Sweater here.

DIY Bamboo Wooden Yarn Bowl Tutorial by dtextor from Instructables here. Great photos and good instructions. I normally do not post projects that need power tools, but in the numerous comments a “coping saw” was mentioned as an alternative (like the ones at Amazon here). What a great gift this would have made over the holidays for someone who knits or crochets. First seen at Make here.

DIY Vintage-Style Book Dust Covers

Looking at this picture, can you tell which of these books are actually hardbound? I’m not super fussy over the books on my shelves, but I will admit that sometimes a really garish or unattractive book spine will jump out from the bunch and irritate me every time I walk by. I don’t think I would ever take the leap to cover all of my books, but I really like the idea of using these nifty deceptive hardbound dustcovers by Alex Cobbe to gussy up the real eyesores in my collection.

DIY Two Tutorials for the Bina Brianca Wrap. Have you see this? It can be worn as a scarf, cardigan, poncho, blouse, shrug, stole, turtleneck, shoulder scarf, back wrap, tunic and headscarf. You can download the PDF “how-to” manual for all these styles from Bina Brianca here. Top Photo: Bina Brianca Wrap here, Bottom Photos: DIY Bina Brianca Wrap Tutorial by Organized Living Solutions here. Not pictured original tutorial for the wrap at The Craft Guild here. 
*If you are even thinking of ever making this I’d download the Bina Brianca how-to PDF now because in my experience these things get pulled off the internet frequently (because people decide to charge for previously free patterns or in this case they may decide to have it just as an insert when you buy the wrap).
