Remember these? Well I made a whole plethora of them in different colours, and now they will inhabit a happy little nook in honey thistle :) (psst there’s free shipping, and I’m open to custom requests).

Tutorial: Miniature Bookcase

February 24, 2012 Reblogged from honeythistledesigns

Just finished my latest tutorial for Honey Thistle, check it out if you like miniature things, DIY, and just general awesomeness ;D


So this week’s craft is inspired entirely by mezcraft on craftster (a crafty forum I regularly frequent). It’s set up a little differently than the usual tutorials because I sort of figured things out along the way, so there’s no group picture for the materials used because I had to improvise a lot on this one.

This one is also slightly different because I wanted to focus on making it as eco-friendly as possible - i.e. repurposing old materials, recycling items, etc. Anyway, let’s move on to the things you’ll need for this crafty awesomeness.

This is one of the most spectacular uses of yarn that I have ever seen. It’s by Lucy Faulke & was featured at the Lion Brand Yarn CHA Fashion Show this year. I can only hope I’ll be as good at design as she is right now!

I have just finished a new batch of animal totem pins :) Look for them in my etsy in the next few days. 

P.S. If you’d like a custom totem animal of your own to carry with you always, send me a message here or convo me on etsy.

Hey guys, so over the past few weeks I’ve been dodging homework and staring down group presentations to work on my newest endeavour - an upcycled sweater line!

I absolutely love ugly sweaters, and you wouldn’t believe how many exist out there. Unfortunately, one of the attributes of an ugly sweater is that it’s boxy and completely unflattering. Well, no more I say! So buckle in and stay tuned for a series of other revamped ugly sweaters (some not so ugly, but just interesting in general).

Also, if you’ve never seen this guy around, you should seriously consider following him. His obsession may very well rival my own.

New necklace up for grabs :)

I’m currently playing around with wax cotton cord, and going for a bolder look than my previous lines. Keep up with my progress via facebook :)
