DIY Easy Zipper Blazer Tutorial from Texture here. I’ve loved the idea of this jacket ever since I saw Lenne’s DIY Burberry Prorsum F/W10-11 Inspired Zipper Blazer Tutorial on aetienne.net here. *This can be hand sewn.

DIY Beyond Easy Textured Polymer Beads. Tutorial from Jibby and Juna here. *She uses a "tissue blade" which I’ve mentioned in other posts is extremely sharp - you used to only be able to get them from medical supply companies because they were/are used to… slice tissue, so please be careful! EDIT: Comment from need-want-love said: I could see an xacto knife doing the same job, and it’d probably be a bit safer.

Verdigris Over Copper. I call it Yarn Porn. So gorgeous. From 1funkyknitwit here. Can you imagine knitting with this yarn?

“This was an easy  | enjoyable | and pretty spin. To spin it I basically weighed out and split the braid into two halves and then split those halves four ways and then drafted them out slightly. I did the same with the fiber samples and then whilst spinning I injected these in randomly. It was spun over two bobbins and then they were plied together making a pretty 2ply yarn.”
