DIY XOXO Ring Dish

Polymer clay is a fun material to work with because there's so many things that can be made with it! In the past I used it to make faux Agate coasters but this time I thought I would try my hand at making a dish. I chose to make my Valentine's themed but you could use any letters or even a picture at the bottom.
  • Polymer clay 
  • Modge Podge & a paintbrush
  • Paper letters (found in the scrapbooking section of most craft stores)
  • X-Acto knife

Super Chunk Cowl [knitting pattern]

[sweater: Theory, sunglasses: Gucci]
I've never worked with such large knitting needles before. They took some getting used to- it kind of felt like knitting with broomsticks! After a few rows I got the hang of it and I love the giant knit the large needles achieve.
Yarn: Bernat Mega Bulky in Light Grey Heather (2 skeins)
Needles US size 35
Cast on 34 stitches. Work in Stockinette Stitch (knit one side, purl the other) until piece measures 13 inches. Bind off and sew the side seam.

DIY Flannel And Suede Infinity Scarf

[sweater: TSE Cashmere (similar), sunglasses: Gucci]
I was inspired to make this scarf after seeing this version by Michael Kors. I wanted to add my own twist on the design so I incorporated some suede I had reclaimed from a thrifted skirt.
  • Woven camo fabric (1 yard)
  • Suede (12 X 18 inches)
  • Sewing machine
