Homemade Herbal Bath Salts | Henry Happened
Unfortunately, I don’t have a bath in my house. Bummer. But my mum and dad have a hugebath at home and so I like to buy/make things to use when I go back for visits. Bath salts are great because they are cheap to make in bulk so you don’t feel guilty for throwing big handfuls in! You can get Epsom, kosher and sea salt at most health food stores and even sometimes at the supermarket (though it will probably be much more expensive). When adding your scents, be careful not to go too overboard as it can make your bath slippery. And if you’re going to add things like lavender, rose petals, etc. it may be wise to scoop them out before you let your bath out so you don’t clog your system! But back to the nice stuff. Lavender is great for calming, as is chamomile. There is a absolutely amazing chart here on different essential oils, their properties, whether they are uplifting, calming, etc, even the best oils to combine with others. Try making some extra jars for gifts and you’ll be popular forever!

Threw this baby together last night based on these instructions. Was a little shy on red felt so need to pick up a bit more to fill in the inside so you can’t see the green styrofoam ring peeking from an angle. Other than that, pretty obsessed.

Carte Postale Zipper Pouch | The Graphics Fairy
One of my favourite things to craft with is tshirt transfer paper. You can create your own printed fabric and there are so many fantastic projects out there using it. This is a great example - just download the vintage picture of an old letter, print it onto the paper, iron it onto your fabric and sew it up (ok, a little harder than that but not super hard!). A perfect little pouch to chuck your tablets, jewellery or spare change!

Faux Leather Accent Foldover Clutch | You & Mie
I really love the faux leather detail of these clutches - why would you want to use real leather when you can get the same look from faux!? Plus think of all the stuff I could fit into these… though they may not be able to fold over then… oh well!

Circle Skirt Tutorial by Kapalaka
Circle skirts are one of the handiest things you can learn to make for cosplay.  As far as simple-to-make skirts go, there are two types: circle skirts and rectangle skirts.  A rectangle skirts is where you cut out a large rectangle, and gather or pleat all of the excess material until it will fit your waist, giving you a nice full skirt (we explained it in a bit more detail on this over here).
Circle skirts, on the other hand, give you a lot of nice fullness, but with minimal bulk at the waist.  For example, my Babs Bunny skirt:

It might not seem like it, but there are a ton of different things you can do with circle skirts.  Long circle skirts (as outlined in the tutorial) are perfect for ball gowns.  If you need less fullness, you can make a half circle skirt or a 3/4 circle skirt (just use a half circle or 3/4 of a circle, instead of the full circle).  If you need more fullness, make several circle skirts (make sure you adjust the waist measurement accordingly, i.e. for 2 circle skirts, use half your waist measurement on both of them), and sew them all together.  Here’s an example of that technique (with gathers and horse hair braid in the hem.  Tutorial for how she made it here)

You can add pleats or scallops in the hem, layer a whole bunch on top of each other, or whatever else you want to do:

I’ve even known some people to make capes and cloaks and the like using a circle skirt as the basis of their pattern.  So go forth!  Go forth and use circles!
