DIY Star Trek “Live Long and Prosper” Hoodie. A craft fail because the thumb is not extended, but still a good idea that you could fix. There is a template and tutorial http://www.instructables.com/id/Do-your-own-star-trek-sweat-shirt-/?ALLSTEPS Or you can buy the black and white hoodie for $49.50 but most of the sizes are sold out from Threadless http://www.threadless.com/product/2464/Traditional_Greeting
truebluemeandyou: Easy fix for this craft fail modifying the stencil at the link. I would use a freezer paper or contact paper stencil or even free hand it.

DIY Pearl Chain Maille Bracelet Tutorial from Irina’s Cute Box here. I’ve made chain maille bracelets before - but not like this one. From the comment section it is obvious that you have to make your own jump rings and there are lots of tutorials on the internet on how to do this. If you don’t have the right size jump ring your pear/bead falls out. A BIG THANK YOU to heyylinda for messaging me the link to this tutorial.
DIY Lace Inset Tee Shirt Restyle Tutorial from Handmade Mess here. I am really impressed by how detailed this tutorial is. She even tells you what key words to use when searching for lace. She used twin needles for the jersey (and those run about $4). For 25 pages of altered DIY tee shirts go here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/tee-shirt
I have had the same raw wooden valance in my room since I moved into my house… 6 years ago. it was meant to be temporary - but it’s funny how ‘temporary’ can last for ages! But my room is getting a makeover soon with the help of some gorgeous Laura Ashley wallpaper, a coat of paint… and a new valance! I am so in love with this Moroccan themed one, it looks so chic and would go so well with my new wallpaper. I’m saving this for future reference!
DIY Wax Seals Made from Buttons Tutorial from Whimseybox here. I love sealing wax and seals and have more good DIYs here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/sealing-wax
diychristmascrafts: add sealing wax and pretty stationery and envelopes for a nice gift.
DIY Five Lightboxes from Everything Etsy here. I’ve posted two or more of these before, but I posted a really cheap and simple one here that I really like: DIY Foam Core Light Reflector for Taking Photos from Heart Handmade UK here.
DIY Twenty Five Free Fonts Picked by How to Nest for Less here. I already tried some of these and I couldn’t find Rosewood for free. But the others I tried worked and the Respective font has some pretty swashes/flourishes that are easy to use. I collect fonts (one of my only active Pinterest boards) like others collect nail polish or shoes.
