shelterrific » tested and approved: idye natural fabric dye. I have some of the iDye for synthetics in the hopes of turning some yellow sandals black, I’ll report back if I ever get up the courage to try it.

The Hooded Scarf – Bolt Neighborhood. I think this is the answer to my inability to like rain hats and my shyness over sporting one of those clear plastic rain hoods that little old ladies in Ohio used to wear so they didn’t mess up their perfectly set hair. blog : Fabrickit for E-Textiles.

angry chicken: getting ready for cooler weather. With recommendations on books and sources for making your own herbal goods.

angry chicken: toy theater out of a moving box. I came across this yesterday and really love it, it even has three slots for backdrops.

Grosgrain: Poppy Boutonniere Tutorial. Inspired by the fabulous Emersonmade flowers.

betz white: funky chunky. A collection of projects made with huge yarn. “I love how the ordinary becomes extraordinary just by a massive change of scale.” Agreed!

    Wow, I’ll have to wait until I get home to see the last link – which naturally is the one I really want to see – because our work gives me an inappropriate content marker for it.

    Amy – Weird. It’s about as tame as a site can get.

    I am knitting a hooded scarf right now, but it would be much faster even with my paltry sewing skills to sew one up!

    Ooh, I never thought to sew a hooded scarf. I remember one being one of my first knitting projects :)

    Little old ladies in Illinois wore the plastic rain hats, too – my friends gave me one when I turned 50.

    I love angry chicken’s diy stuff. I still use her deodorant recipe and LOVE it. To heck with ever buying anything with weirdo ingredients again!
