this week’s awesome finds

Fall is in the air! :D

Lattice cookies by Not Martha, perfect over hot apple cider. (With step‐by‐step photo tutorial on how to make the lattice!)

 

Mini cherry pies baked in a muffin tin! Isn’t that cute? Recipe on Sew Sweet Stitches.

 

An altered book project! Thinking of my librarian friend who loves fall decorations… How‐to on Creations by Kara

 

Candy corn clops! XD Free pattern on Gleeful Things.

And now for things less seasonal but equally awesome…

 

Stylish earrings made with those ubiquitous buttons/pins from I Could Make That. Now I have a way to make good use of my button collection :D

 

Custom picture frames made with kraft paper tape (or as my high school art teacher calls it, butcher’s tape — actually, I haven’t heard anyone else call it butcher’s tape. Maybe she made it up. She says it in a really funny way too, makes me smile every time I see butcher’s tape). How‐to on Oh Happy Day.

 

The process of this is so cool — it starts with a plain black tee and with alternating layers of bleach and dye it became a whole universe! From Unicorn Parade.

 

A lovely thimble necklace by Maize on Instructables. I’ve got to make one of these if I ever come across an extra thimble. I only have one and need it for sewing…

And finally, from one of my favourite plush designers…

A tiny sushi from Mochimochi Land! Isn’t this ever cute! There is no pattern for this but I have to show it to you. I could just look at it all day and marvel at the craftsmanship of it. I’ve made crocheted sushi but the knit version just has a different kind of smooth and refined look to it. I wish I could knit better… And it doesn’t end here, check this out…

 

A tiny edamame! Enter the caption contest before Monday and you could win the Ninjabun pattern! (I would totally try making up a haiku for this if I could knit!)

Have a happy weekend, everyone! :D
