Bias Tape Strap

DIY Tutorial: Bias Tape Strap | @onelmon

Hi there everyone! So this is my first post in year 2015 and I’m starting it with a sewing craft. I’m still exercising my “sewing with sewing machine” skill and bought a bias tape to challenge myself in sewing a straight line on a narrow surface.

Mini Paper Christmas Tree

DIY Tutorial: Mini Paper Christmas Tree | @onelmon

Christmas is almost here and today I’m sharing a quick Xmas-y decoration craft.

So, with whatever I had at the time, I made this glowing snow jar instead, minus the glow stick.

Frankly, the result doesn’t work with the barcode reader (most probably due to the poor arrangements of the lead) but it was a fun experiment and you can totally give this a try (with those broken lead) to make a cool, sort of geeky pendant ;) Scroll down to see the how to!

Browsing back to all the crafts I did, I stumbled upon this experimental dried paint project from last year and decided to add a little mysterious and fun twist to it with the glow-in-the-dark effect. Just in time for Halloween!
