friday links

a weekly series displaying great ideas i found on the net.

  • recycle that old bedtop blanket into an insulated window blinds for winter.
  • got a potluck to go to? here’s how to make your own cozy using an old wool sweater.
  • i’m fascinated by Anthropologie but can never afford anything there. here’s how to make monogram mugs in their unique style.
  • though I’m planning to make a calendar for next year instead of buying (using photos from my recent trip to dh’s homelandia), here’s a pretty cool-looking owl-theme calendar you can put together and print from online. this may go in the spare bedroom by my computer desk.
  • another thing in the style of Anthropologie, make your own cirrus duvet cover.
  • this would be great, not just for diwali, but for any holiday you celebrate: recycled plastic cup word tea covers.
  • for those cool nights at home, but not cold enough for the heavy stuff, make your wimsical felt slippers.
  • decorate those cookie tins with these doily designs.
  • this maybe a project I’ll do soon. since i don’t have a sewing machine yet, this no-sew blanket may be perfect for a gift for a friend who is about to bring a little one into the world.
  • perfect little gift ideas to recycle those many buttons around the house: easy button magnets.
  • this makes for a great gag gift for those celebrating christmas: felt grumpy, the lump of coal.
  • it’s a trap! get your geek on with these star wars napkin rings.
