DIY Beaded Fringe Earrings

DIY Beaded Fringe Earrings
Seed beads are great for long earrings because they provide impact and color without adding uncomfortable weight. I gave these a beach vibe by using neutral colors and a pop of blue.
Supplies:
Earring hooks
Jump rings
Jewelry pliers
Chain
Bead stringing wire
Seed Beads (in assorted colors)
DIY Beaded Fringe Earrings
Cut the chain to 1 1/2 inches long. Using the jewelry pliers and a jump ring attach the earring hook to the chain.
DIY Beaded Fringe Earrings
Cut a piece of bead stringing wire that is 6 inches long. Knot it to the first section of chain.

String on the seed beads. I used approximately a few inches of each color.
DIY Beaded Fringe Earrings
String on until you reach 1 inch from the end of the wire. Make a few tight knots to secure the beads.

 Repeat the steps, this time knotting the wire on the next chain link down from the top.

Each chain link gets a beaded strand knotted on to it.

Super Easy 3 Square Child's Sweater [knitting pattern]



There are tons of cute patterns out there for kid's sweaters, but most of them are rather complex for the beginner knitter. I wanted to create a super easy pattern that even the most newbie knitter could make. This poncho-like sweater is made using 3 squares...that's right, if you can knit a square you can make this!
PS- Adult version of this pattern is coming soon =)
Size US 8 straight knitting needles
Yarn needle
Lion Brand Scarfie yarn in Charcoal/Aqua (1 skein)
Knitting pattern
Gauge: 3sts = 1 inch
Sizes 1-2 years, 3-4 years, 4-5 years
For the front and back square:
Cast on 50 (52, 54) sts. Work in Garter Stitch until piece measures 14 (15, 16) inches. Bind off.
For the turtleneck:
Cast on 50 (52, 54) sts. Work in Garter Stitch until the piece measures 8 inches. Bind off.
Sew the pieces together at the top- 3 1/2 inches on each side. Fold over and sew the side seams together, leaving a 6 (6 1/2, 7) inch opening for arm holes.

Fold the remaining piece in half lengthwise to create the turtleneck. Sew the side seam. Sew the turtleneck on to the sweater.

DIY Macrame T Shirt (no sew!)

DIY Macrame T Shirt (no sew!)
This macrame technique is an easy way to transform a mens undershirt into a cute beach cover up. Best of all, it's no sew!
Supplies:
Mens undershirt (I dyed mine using this technique)
Scissors
Cut the bottom hem off of the shirt. Cut a straight line up from the bottom (I ended mine about 3 inches below the bust)
Cut another line about an inch away from the first.
DIY Macrame T Shirt (no sew!)
[Left] Continue cutting until you've made strips all around the shirt. [Right] Double knot each strand to the one next to it.
DIY Macrame T Shirt (no sew!)
Take each strand and knot it to its neighbor. This joins the 2 different knot strand together. Repeat all around the shirt.

Continue knotting

You can knot all the way down to the hem or stop if you'd like to leave some fringe hanging.
