DIY Links of the Week 11.1 – 11.07.10

In DIY, Links of the Week on November 9, 2010 by Naoko Takano

I contributed a tutorial to Foam Magazine on how to Make a Rope Knot Necklace.  Check it!

If you’ve ever wondered how to make felt hats, The Fashionate Traveler has a wonderful video on How to Make a Felt Pillbox Hat.  She has a great tutorial on making a military-style cap out of an old farmer’s straw hat by steaming it over a steam-cooker. (!!)

Amy Sedaris‘ new book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People hits shelves.  Less DIY and more funny?  I’m adding it to my reading list!

A T-shirt turned into a shirred-top skirt?  Sounds right up my alley!  Check out sewlikemymom‘s tutorial on

I just came across DIY Style, a site that has a number of crafty tutorials and vodcasts (video podcasts).  They even produce a line of patterns through McCall’s! (DIY Lingerie, anyone?  Sign me up!)

Lucinda at thriftandthread posted her tutorial for turning a tee into a knot-bust dress.  It’s so easy to do and the results are so pretty you’ll be wondering why you didn’t think of it before! 

Hope you guys all had a week filled with DIY!
