Here are a few interesting things from around the web that grabbed me this week:
- Upcycled Dolls get a Makunder – from Tree Change Dolls, via MAKE: Craft. I don’t think I could possibly love this project more than I do. Discarded Bratz dolls (and others of their ilk) are made-under with a newly-painted face and handmade clothes. The results are surprisingly wholesome. It’s worth clicking through the Craft: article to Sonia’s Tumblr blog for more before-and-after pictures.
- Pajama Pants – a sewing tutorial from Craftsy. A nice pair of cozy lounge pants can feel so decadent, particularly on a Winter night in front of the fire. This tutorial shows you how to fashion a pair out of a thrifted bed sheet. It’s a great way to pamper yourself without spending much.
- Limit Your Creativity to Push Your Creativity – tips from Brennan Lanter, via Click it up a Notch. She takes some stunning photos from the passenger seat of a car, let me tell you! While this article focuses on limits in photography, the same concept can be applied to any art.
Have a great Friday!
