DIY Friday: Making a DIY-ísh Fabric Mannequin

Hiyeee~! It’s DIY Friday again. Are you ready for making a DIY-ish Fabric Mannequin? So let’s get started. This design idea started when I begin to hooked on sewing and making a tutu skirt & dresses. Of course, It is more catching and enchanting If I have a torso mannequin to display my handmade dresses. I actually wanted to purchase a kids torso mannequin at online market, the designs are very pleasing & fascinating but the prices are way too expensive (but I guess, it’s worth it as well), It will costs me from $41 to $100. + the shipping. And then my crafty mind begins to shine, so I decided to tackle making my own DIY-ish mannequin, cheapo but pretty simple & nifty. Continue reading “DIY Friday: Making a DIY-ísh Fabric Mannequin”

DIY Friday: Little Desk Organizer

Owhkey! It’s DIY Friday!  Let me share another recycled treasure. I created this for my little princess named Phoebe. I’d like to surprise her (cause she always love surprises) and can’t wait to see her adorable smile and the sparks in her eyes, of course her sweet “thank you” and lovely kisses she’ll give. She had this so called “Little Desk”, where she always drew and paints. It’s just an empty little desk, simple and unembellished, so I decided to make her a little desk organizer; just to fill the emptiness into fancy one.

I always have tons of empty boxes of detergent, milk carton and tissue paper roll, etc. I collected it until I can make a beautiful desk organizer. From detergent boxes, turn into a desk book organizer, where she can situate her little reading books & other stuff; from tissue paper roll turn into a pen organizer, and the chocolate box, I just use it as a base of the tissue to support the things that will put in. Once the empty boxes and tissue roll are clean, cut and smooth, all you need to do is wrap the boxes with origami stylish paper or deco wall sticker paper (which I use) but any kind of paper you prefer is fine, and use ribbon or any deco for embellishing your desk organizer. And there you have it, another cute and dazzling DIY desk organizer.

New Pursuit.

MY OWN BEAUT RACK RIBBON HANGING IN MY CRAFT WALL

I have a new pursuit to hone and to be hooked with; and it’s making a Wood Crafts. When I was still in the Philippines, I do really wanted to make a wood crafts but sad to say I can’t find a good materials for making a wood thingy so I can’t pursue on creating some stuff.

And then voilà~! It is my lucky day when I went to shop for some groceries and I saw a wood materials section. Of  course, I am so animated looking for something I can use on making my first wood crafts. 

And here’s the materials that I bought; (a) plywood sheet (b) round wood stick (c) hobby saw and (d) metal hang fittings 

I always envious seeing images of a wall rack ribbon and I know it was made of a professional maker that can buy at Interior Home Depot. And now I am gonna make my own wall rack ribbon “Yiheee..” though I don’t have much materials for wood crafting maybe I can still make a way to create my new pursuits. 



Since I dont’ have a wood drill I just  used my screw driver to make a hole.  I need to use a tape measure, ruler and pencil to create a guides.  Continue reading “New Pursuit.”

DIY: Recycling Moments

One day we bought a box of Aquarius which is like a water or an energy drink and a Coca-cola soft drink; a 2Liter in size that looks like a voluptuous woman.
And then suddenly “Recycled” just cross into my mind. I told to myself once the bottle are empty I’ll think something that I can possibly use for my stuff.
So the bottle are empty. I thoroughly washed it, pouring some detergent inside the bottle, re-capping to close, then I shaked it upside down so it will wash the whole body. Since it’s not easy to take away the detergent bubbles, I just leave the running water dripping to the mouth so the bubbles will go up and gone.
Here’s what I had in mind; I’d like to make a lamp on the top and a container with the bottom. But the result, I only just made the container. Since I don’t have enough materials for the lamp, I’ll skipped to it but once I have the materials like the bulb, I’ll sort it again.
I was in-love with her body by being transparent, the color will stays and leave it as transparent. Maybe because I wanted to see my stuff that I am gonna put on my recycled container.
Look what I did. This is the result, simple but useful. I situated my scissors, cutter, little roller, deco pen, and more on deco whip and sauce; and Tadah~! I had my own stuff container. So here’s the images for the step.

Tips using Clay Extruder

Since I have new extruder I will make some tips using my makins extruder. So say hi to Mr. Extruder, that’s the way I called him. He helped me a lot in many design even-though my hand are kinda hurt using it. I would say it’s not bad if you spend some money to buy a good quality tools coz you will find it worthy.
Materials I used:
Fimo Clay
Makins Extruder
Clay Roller or Pasta Machine
Circle Cutter
Cutter knife

 

Here’s what I’m gonna share using Mr. Extruder for easy using it.
*First we need a pasta machine or clay roller so we can condition our clay very well.
*After conditioning your clay, use your circle cutter and put them together (like the photo below);
(Yes i know it will eat a lot of time, but don’t worry this will help you to chose your own colors and for easy putting your clay on the extruder)
*Oh my don’t forget to roll your clay when you are done putting them all so your clay will stick together and make them long.
*Then check it if they will already fit on your extruder.
*Put your clay and choose your prefer disc design.
*And we’re all ready to rock! 🙂
*by the way, if your hand are also hurting while using extruder you can use;
CLOTH GLOVES
CLOTH TOWEL and roll it to your extruder or;
RUBBER BAND (more rubber band that will fit your hand when holding Mr. Extruder body)
FABRIC TAPE
-but the most comfy to use; look for a FOAM it will less the pain since Mr. Extruder are made out of steel. (put and roll it to Mr. Extruder body and the rotator as well if you want)
I’M READY TO PUT THEM TOGETHER
HERE’S MY READY MAKE USING THE SQUARE DISC I JUST PUT THEM TOGETHER SO IT WILL LIKELY BIG.

 

These are the result of my handmade cane using Mr. Extruder.
I made a ring and a necklace (sorry i forgot to take a pic of my hand made necklace)
Don’t fear to experiment on your own extruder.
Make it ROCK! 😀
