Albion jacket

New jacket for Muhtick. This is the Colette Albion pattern. It’s a straight size medium, jacket length but with a lining. It sadly turned out too narrow across the upper back, but at least it looks good when he’s standing still. Just doesn’t work well when he’s driving or using his arms in any way…

mason jar beeswax candles

Alrighty folks, are you ready to be blown away by another craft project? We’ve already looked at how to make a vegetable oil candle. Now it’s time for beeswax! In mason jars! In case you didn’t know, mason jars are super hip. And you can do so many things with them! You can make mason jar¬†soap dispensers, use them as mini blender containers, make mason jar pin cushions, or make¬†mason jar candy pedestals. Who doesn’t need a super fugly candy pedestal in their life?? My personal favourite thing to do with mason jars is to store foodstuffs in them. But I digress, let’s get back to the topic of making beeswax candles in mason jars.

sewing snark – brown shirt

Mar 12 2013

Posted by:

As my interest in posting photos of bicycles owned by people with low self esteem has waned, I have decided that it is time to find a more sustainable line of content. I will now be posting more of my sewn items here. I have sewn many things since the inception of this website, but very few (only one in fact) have been posted. This is because I’m a lazy bastard. It is also because I don’t really have a strong desire to put myself out there. To allow things that I have created to be scrutinized. I’m too insecure and vain at the same time. Well, I’m going to try and get over that and post a bit more, for the better of the site. Since clearly my contribution will better the site. Alrighty, on with the sewing content!

How to make canvas wall art

Jun 03 2012

Posted by:

New craft snark! Today we are going to be making some canvas wall art for much cheaper than they would charge you in one of those poster art places. For example this canvas is about 13.5″x18″, and cost less than $10, but would cost about $73 to get done at my local art store.

Today I will be showing you how to make an oil burning candle out of items you probably already have at home. The candles use vegetable oil, so the next time your paraffin candle burning “friends” come over, you can be sure to point out your moral superiority with your petroleum-free mood lighting.
