All right....this one was an initial failure. Adam even sat down and tried to follow the 'mystery braid' instructions. He did it, but it drove me nuts. I thought it was too complicated and it was hard to get the braid to look a consistent thickness.
So...instead, I just cut 3 strips of t-shirt fabric, braided them, then sewed the ends together. Close enough.
The Lolly Dolls (popsicle stick dolls, whatever you want to call them) are FUN! In fact, after the nuclear family, I decided to branch out.
There. Our family. Violet's going crazy with them!
Hey, fellow Pinterest Junkies---I have a challenge for you. Us. If you're like me, you have an ever-growing stash of Pinterest ideas. So....let's get cracking on those. Go find one that you can accomplish in an hour or two (more, if you're brave), and let's check one item off as 'done'!
I don't know if I told you or not, but I'm teaching a workshop in December on how to make recycled t-shirt scarves. I am going to experiment with making these mystery braid bracelets out of t-shirt knits, too.
