I've seen a bunch of these yarn-wrapped letters on pinterest (here, here, and here) and loved them. So I was just waiting to find the right letter "C" to create my own (I wanted a fairly modern sans-serif typeface and hadn't seen any around.) The other day I was in Michael's Art & Craft and saw a bunch of letters in the dollar bins on clearance, I was excited to find this sans-serif "C" for just forty cents! I picked up a $2.50 skein of yarn in a soft gray color, and used a little bit of hot glue that I already owned for a quick, $3 project.
I wrapped the end caps first so they'd be underneath.
I was given a cardboard lamp base over the summer and had a yard of fabric from IKEA laying around so I decided to combine the two to make a lamp for my studio. I wrapped the fabric around the base inside out and then marked it with a pin, then I sewed a seam at the mark to make a sleeve. Hemmed the top and bottom to the correct height to cover the cardboard area, and slipped the finished sleeve over the base. It was quick to make and will be easy to change for a new look if I ever get tired of this fabric, though I'm loving it so much, it's hard to imagine wanting to change it.
I like the feel of the sunshine and the smell of the beach. I love food and eating with people who make me laugh. I enjoy music (made by others). I love praying to God and reading his word. I like jeans that fit really well. I like the way it looks when things are orderly and organized even though most of the time I can't keep them that way.
