Crafty Roundup

Some craft projects that have caught my eye. If I had time, I would definitely do one of these! Great for some homemade xmas presents too:

Pattern for sewing a Wasp bag – this seems to be the new make yourself purse pattern! I think it’s so cute!

Things to make for guys – the box made of playing cards and the suede ipod case seem easy and cool to make!

Video on how to make a sympathy doll – cute cute cute!

Very simple knit tissue cozy – I’d totally use this

Holiday gift tags from angry chicken – not really crafty since all you have to do is print them out but they are so much cooler than store bought ones!

Kim, you know I love you, but if you or anyone else ever gave me a box made out of playing cards, I would take it my hand, put it on the floor, crush it underfoot, then slap you with my ring hand.

I am sorry Robot, but that has got to be the single worst present I’ve ever heard of. That is supposed to be a present for GUYS? Here’s a tip for you, silly girls: Guys like porn, beer, and gadgets, in that order. Maybe with the first two reversed, it depends how thirsty they are.

What they do NOT like is HANDICRAFTS. This is not a “Nature’s classroom” retreat from the 5th grade. What’s next, a lanyard? How about a bird feeder made out of pinecones?

A box of playing cards is something you would make for your grandma in the bathroom at her birthday party because you forgot it was her birthday and you were actually just coming over to borrow some money and you need to think of something FAST. It also causes the destruction of a perfectly good set of playing cards.

Worst gift ever. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

LOL you’re right. And for laughs, I will definitely be showing Miki how to make that box. :)
