DIY Comic Book “Sound Effect” Plush: Scrap Felt and Yarn Project

Hello, here’s a DIY post from me in what seems like forever. These photos have been sitting in my computer for a really long time and I feel bad that I never got around to posting them, so even though I’m super busy I’m forcing myself to sit down and write a blog post because I’ll never get around to it if I keep putting it off! (Lol, look at me fighting procrastination with procrastination. This terrible combination will never end well, Jad. Never.)

I made this little comic book plush because I have bags of scrap yarn lying around as well as random bits of felt that I can’t use for bigger projects. I wanted to use up my scrap orange and yellow felt without having to resort to the usual suggestions like a bowl for buttons or a coaster or a pincushion. Can’t I recycle and be pop-culture relevant at the same time? *shakes fist

ANYHOO. Here’s what you need:

My Shrink Plastic / Shrinky Dink Jewelry

DIY Polyshrink Jewelry

I think the shrink plastic jewelry I made turned out pretty awesome! :)

This isn’t really a tutorial, because printable shrink plastic is really easy to work with: You print out whatever you want on the shrink plastic sheets, cut out the shapes, punch holes for jewelry findings, and bake. Presto!

Here’s some closeup shots of stuff I made with 1 sheet of shrink plastic that I bought on Etsy (shipping to Phils was $5, the pack was $11)

Random Charms

A rather wonky typewriter ( I forgot to desaturate the ink and the sealant smeared, which means I shouldn’t use it anymore), a lightning bolt, a <3 emoticon, and a N E R D ring.

I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. I can’t wait to try out more ideas! :)

My Great Food 15-Second Cooking Challenge


image


I’ve been a bit obsessed with stop motion and decided that the My Great Food in 15 seconds competition from Nuffnang was as good a chance as any to come up with a stop motion project. 15 seconds? I get to eat it afterwards? I can roll with that!

The contest also calls for a summer recipe, so I figured the best bet was something easy to make, had few ingredients, and had ice cream in it!

Here’s my entry:

My Favorite Photo Editing Apps For Android

My Favorite Photo Editing Apps For Android

image

Just the other week I someone asked me what I use to edit my photos on Instagram. Currently I work as a photo-retoucher at one of my day jobs, so it makes sense that that same obsessive compulsiveness to fiddle around with a photo carries over to pictures I take with my smartphone (a cheap Cloudfone Thrill 500g). I still use my Samsung Galaxy GT i550’s camera sometimes (takes pretty good daytime photos even from a moving car) and then I import the files to my bigger 5-inch phone for easier editing. I don’t really have a fancy setup, my phones are budget-priced and their cameras are average (leaning towards terrible, in the Cloudfone’s case).

Food Diary: We ♥ DIY SUSHI!

image

The Boy and I love sushi (rice rolls. No raw fish involved unless you want it!) so we made our own the other night. Sushi is extremely filling—4 rolls are usually enough for me. My favorite part about preparing sushi is that it’s easy and no actual cooking aside from creating the sushi-zu (sushi rice).

This is my DIY sushi recipe, so it’s bound to have shortcuts. Apologies in advance. :P

(I bought EVERYTHING at the NCCC Mall supermarket in Matina.)
