Origami Jewellery

Hello!!

I’m going to post a wee tutorial on something I make quite a bit.

How to: Origami Jewellery!!

And when I say origami jewellery, I mean little paper origami used as pendants/earrings!!

You will need:

Origami paper

Eyepin

PVA glue

A paintbrush

A pin/needle

Instructions:

1: Make your wee origami. It can be anything. It could be a frog, a fish, a crane, it could even be a tiny dino!! Use your imagination!!

2: Figure out where you want the origami to hang from.

3: Poke a wee hole to thread an eyepin through, using the pin/needle.

4: Dip the head of the eyepin into the glue, and thread it through the hole you made in the previous step.

5: Coat the entire origami in glue, and find a place where it can hang up to dry.

6: Once dry, you can thread any beads onto the eyepin if you’re making earrings or a pendant.

7: Make a loop at the top, and attach the earring hooks if you’re making earrings, or attach a jump ring if you’re making a pendant.

Tada!!

All done!!

The great thing about origami jewellery is that you can make lots at a time, and they will be totally different from everything else in the shops nowadays!!

Now go on and show off your amazing origami skills!!!

Love

Sorry!!

Hello!!

I wanted to start this post with an apology.

So, I’m sorry. I’m really, truly, very sorry.

I have a feeling you’re currently wondering WHY I’m apologising.

It’s because I haven’t been keeping up with my blog. And I’ve left you all hanging, which isn’t very nice.

So, I’m sorry.

But the reason I haven’t posted anything in a while, is because I’ve been too busy. I was working on my Portfolio, which I needed to apply for the course I wanted to do, and I just didn’t know what to post. It actually got so bad, that I didn’t even want to sort out my blog. But, now, I’m going to try and keep up with this. And if I need to post another apology, then I haven’t done what I hoped to do for 2014, and that would be really sad.

So, I hope you can all bear with me, as I try to beat the monster called Procrastination, and get back onto my blog.

Love and Hugs

Rori

Tutorial: Embroidered Colour Wheel

I came up with this idea when I was looking for a non-existenet colour-wheel in my room. I can’t remember why I was looking for it, so obviously it wasn’t that important. But because I was looking for it, I came up with this idea. I needed a colour-wheel, and it had to look like a piece of art at the same time. And I came up with this!!

 

Embroidered Colour Wheel

You Will Need:

  • Embroidery hoop
  • Fabric (I just used a old sheet)
  • Thread (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple & Black)
  • Needle
  • Pencil (For sketching the Wheel onto the fabric)
  • Measuring Tape

Step 1. Stretch your fabric onto your hoop, and, once taut, sketch out your wheel (ON THE WRONG SIDE) using the pencil.

Completed Sketch

 Step 2. With your black thread, sew over the pencil lines.

Beginning the Circle

 Step 3. Now, colour in the sections using your coloured thread following the list below

  • RedRed Section
  • Red/OrangeRed/Orange Section
  • OrangeOrange Section
  • Orange/YellowOrange/Yellow Section
  • YellowYellow Section
  • Yellow/GreenYellow/Green Section
  • GreenGreen Section
  • Green/BlueGreen/Blue Section
  • BlueBlue Section
  • Blue/PurpleBlue/Purple Section
  • PurplePurple Section
  • Purple/RedPurple/Red Section

 Step 4. Frame it, and enjoy!! 

Completed Colour Wheel!!!

And there you go!!

You don’t need to do the same stitches as I do, which is why I didn’t say what stitches I used. You don’t have to follow my pattern for the colours either, in fact, I strongly suggest you make it totally yours!! Do any pattern for the sections, just so long as it’s a circle and you use the colours I listed, otherwise, it wouldn’t be a colour wheel, now would it?

By the way, if use this pattern or re-post/re-blog, can you please leave a link to this blog. Thanks!!

Hugs and kisses,

I’m guessing you noticed how the pictures have been taken in two different places? That’s cause I started taking pictures for the project outside in the evening, and finished it inside the next morning. I’m not planning on doing that again(but it might happen by accident!!!). If you want more pictures, just comment below!!

If you make this, please show me pictures, and please give me credit if you post it on your website/blog!

Review: Crochet Bow Brooch!

Hello!!

This is my first review and it’s on a crochet kit I got from… the Mollie Makes magazine!!!

If you don’t know what Mollie Makes is, I’ll do a wee blurb for ya!!!

Mollie Makes is basically a magazine for crafters. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter, or a newbie, Mollie Makes is the perfect mag to give ideas, to try some new skills, and to basically make the projects!! There’s different people from the craft world who do interviews, and to share their projects. It’s really cool, so click on the link up there!!

The actual brooch actually took me about an hour, maybe less, to make, so a real quickie! It probably would of taken me less time to make it, if I actually concentrated on it! My brother Light was making baked doughnuts (next post might be about them!!) and wanted some help, so me, being a good big sister, helped him to check whether the bottoms of the doughnuts were raw (they weren’t!! They were yummy!!).

So! To the pictures!

Just crafting with a cup o’ tea!

The instructions in the magazine. Btw, it came with the colored crochet hook!!!

Image

 The issue I got in the post. I might make those sassy sisters and tell you the results!!

Image

And the completed brooch!! Pretty cool, huh?

I put it on my shirt and I haven’t taken it off!! I also love the color, and I can make more like this for prezzies!! That’s Xmas sorted!! 

Hugs and kisses!!

I think that’s ’round about it!

So, to sum up.
