Default DIY (Do-It-Yourself) STUFF

Hello everyone! We might think DIY stuff are petty, but oftentimes, these stuff make us bloody sane! Let's admit it, we women love partying, shopping etc, but deep in our hearts, we often want to do something traditional, practical or old school. Like me I'm wanting to learn crocheting. Currently my project is Cloth Diapers. It's great with all those different colors. It's advisable too, my mum says, but only during daytime. Better still to have your babies wear a disposable nappy on nighttime or sleep time as they're much absorbent so the babies will all get a good night sleep.

Share your DIY projects and stuff in here!!

My DIY idea now is to create cross-stitched names of my sons. Will then stitch or attach them to Christmas socks. Will go out tomorrow to look for cross-stitching sets in the metro. I'm so excited!!!

My MIL loves crocheting and she taught me how to crochet last weekend. It was a great bonding, the 3 of us - MIL, baby and I!! I was able to create the left booties using the other one (the right one, which my MIL created) as my pattern. The pink booties are so cute! Simple but I know it's a labor of love!

You gave me an idea. I was into crocheting way back in 2005. Been busy with my post-grad school and work. I read your post and it rang a bell. I should be going back to crocheting for my little one's stuff.

Default My very own bead and shell windchime

I got some shells and unused beads from my parents' house. And bought some materials now. I'm so enthusiastic creating my own windchime! I love chimes. The soothing sound it creates and how I feel nostalgic about it... I might be creating more for my parents as well!

try using cola plastic bottles, cut them in half, and then decorate both halves the way you want it. then put light bulbs inside, hang them like a mobile in different heights...

errr... I don't know if I explained that nicely! ha! anyway... the idea is you will have a decorative "chandelier" made of recycled plastic cola bottles. ^^
