DIY Time!

So. If you have the above materials what can you do with them? Possibly something really handy and helpful... or you can make a killer bracelet! 
I stumbled on Honestly WTF the other day and have fallen hard for their DIYs, there's tie-dying, rope necklaces, pom-poms and this hex nut bracelet. The tutorial specified brass hex nuts, which look amazing, but my local hardware store only had silver, and after assembling I decided that next time I'll also go for the nuts that are a size smaller to keep it looking neater. It was really simple to make and I haven't taken it off since though, so I think it was a success!
The full tutorial is here, but really it's just braiding and then adding the hex nuts one at a time.. easy peasy!

  4. Louise, you definitely need to come to the next meetup! I had no idea you moved to Vancouver, how are you liking it so far?? And I've been meaning to try this DIY since forever but I'm not the crafitiest person and thought for sure I'd mess it up, yours looks so amazing though I definitely should give it a try again! Are you going to Obakki this Thursday??
