Mason Jar Cold Brew Coffee, on The Zen of Making
I’ve been hoping Haley would make a tutorial for this process. I just sampled some iced cold-brew at a street fair, and it was lovely – very smooth and low in acid. In cold brew, you make a concentrate, which you then dilute to taste with either hot of cold water.
A Plastic Canvas Robot Desk Organizer, on Crafts Unleashed
This is a cutie, designed by Vanessa Brady for the Consumer Crafts blog. I love how his belly pops out into a little drawer! That’s exactly the kind of functional stuff the PC is so good at.
Patchwork Scrap Doodling, from Daintytime
This isn’t a formal tutorial as such, but then again Sherri Lynn Wood uses this kind of improv patchwork in a very casual way – as a creative mind-clearing and a bit of play. See if this video doesn’t get you inspired to dig into your scrap stash.
Folk Modern Table Runner, by Ellen Baker on Kollabora
Magazine Stool, on Green Issues by Aggy
If you’ve ever wrangled a stack of old magazines, then you know this stool would be crazy sturdy. It’s assembled with zip ties, so it’s extra strong. You could probably blow a gale-force wind at it, and it wouldn’t budge!
