PRODUCTIVE HOLIDAY #6 : DIY Hobo Bracelets

So today, i tidy up my messy room, and now my room looks so nice and i have a place to sleep to
while i was working , i found some snippet of tees , well, actually they are the fritters of my DIY tees before.
gonna put them on my trash bag, and sligthly my brain is working, why i don't use it for something cute, mmm like bracelets ? i love bracelets so much , but none of them are my creation, and i am so gonna make it ! now!

that pictures above are stuffs you need for making this DIY Hobo Bracelets, fritter tees, scissors, and blink-blink, whatever you want. So simple, isn't it ?


First, cut your fritter fabric into the smaller and longer one, about 30 x 2 cms

 

like that ... for the 1st bracelets, i need a couple piece of fritter fabric that i have cut before


and i stick them with the tape to my floor, and pull them..

and i make some knots, just some simple knots ...
So i have this line of red knots ... and i put the tape, and i bond both edges of the knotted rope

and my first DIY bracelet is done !
and i also make the same kind of that knotted bracelet in different colour, i make the light grey one ...


so i have TWO knotted bracelets ! wohoooo

Second type of my diy bracelet, i just need one rope of fritter fabric, and i also stick it on my floor with the tape

and then i make a small knot, and put 5 little rings on my rope, they won't move because the small knot will hold them , and make a small knot again after the rings.. and do the same thing again, until you think that's enough, you can make it round or just a half round.

so i have a line of studded bracelet ..

  
and now, i have THREE diy bracelets .. enough ? not yet, i want one more ...

for my last bracelet, i need one rope fabric and a line of silver chain ..


and i make a small knot on the edge of my rope ....

  

and put the chain on ...

 

and let some chains hanging freely .. and make the small knot again for making the hanging chains stopped.


and i have my hanging chains bracelet...
and my bracelets dancing soooo awesome on my wrist !
i love them , i love that four !

 

and i also use the unused chain , i just wrap it around my wrist .. and make it sure with a suede thread ...

look at my damn cute hand things ! i love them all, i love my DIY bracelets so much ..
actually i always love all my DIY stuffs, mmm i just feel a bit proud when i make something unused become something useful


When you think recycle just happened to the trashes, you are a big wrong,  some stuffs you think they are getting so old, they also can be re-cycle-d
become the new dying cute thingies



this hobo bracelets are so simple and easy to do, you can use them on some fun case, like hanging out to the city park with fellas, or walking around your city, chilling out on a cafe , shopping to the mall 
and i think this fringe dream catcher tees and this denim shorts are perfectly fit to my bracelets


And thanks for reading my DIY post, i am so happy when you think some of post are interesting and inspiring.

Well,  i think my mumbo jumbo is enough to write to, i am Canca, see you on my next DIY post ! have a productive holiday !

PRODUCTIVE HOLIDAY #5 : DIY Cute Pin Cushion


So today my brother was staying all day long at home and he was enjoying my messy room
reading my books, touching my stuffs, asking everything he wanted to know. And i started to feel that was so awesome fun.
And suddenly my brother shouted "AWWW !" and yea that was a pin who stabbed his leg.
and he said " don't you have a proper place to put your pin beside your bed, it hurts me"
i felt so sorry about that , and i promised to buy one tomorrow, but do i have to buy ? can't i make one ?
of course , I CAN DO THAT! :)

So i made a pin cushion, DIY again, and it was so easy, but a bit hard when i had to sew it, too small and too detail.
First, what i need for this cushion, mmm .. unused fabric, thread, needles, scissors, chopsticks, glue gun, pattern, glass, little pearl, and dakron ( i don't know the English of this stuff, wakakakaka foolish ! )




Second, fold the fabric, and put the pattern on the edge of the pleat


and draw a line due to the pattern you have


and cut cut cut cut cute it with your scissors ! give a little space for sewing part


and this is it ....

make the twin of your first sheet

Congrats you have a twin baby now, hahaha


cut the edge of you twin fabric


 this part is a bit confusing, fold the short side so the short one will stick to the long one


have done that ?

 

and sew it .. do it again to the other side, and the other one fabric , so you will have your bottom fabric become like this



and stick 'em together , and sewww itttt


see, i sew it along the line i have made


and put the dakron inside, wakakaka i don't i get laugh when i write "dakron" if you know what is the English of that stuff, let me know hha


so it will be like this...

 

and pin up your chopsticks inside the cushion, and press your cushion until it has a perfect shape


and sew the hole you left before , the hole for entering in dakron, hahaha come on


and make it sure your chopstick won't move with the glue gun dordordor

put the pearl on the top of your cushion 

stick your cushion to the inside of your glass with the glue gun

and i have this small white pearl, just to make it more cool


and voilaaaaa, i have my pin cushion, so my pins won't hurt my brother again, won't hurt me too


And it fits so perfect with my floral jewellery box....


 and the pictures below had taken by my brother, while i was listening to my cousin's story, look haha my room get so messy , and i am too lazy to make it nice



just like usual, if you have made one like mine , upload your photo on twitter or instagram with hash tag #ProductiveHoliday
