Wind Chime Using Old Keys

Wind music of old keys 1

Probably, every family has a warehouse of useless things. Would not it be great to find them a new life! Do you have such an opportunity: buy a second life to old keys 🙂

So, we need:

1. Keys.

In my practice, I have been manufacturing wind music experience of old keys. I want to warn at once: hollow keys, we will not do, they are not heard, we need the key alloy. I decided not to repeat them, and to find the key of all shapes and sizes on the same instance.

2. Gold enamel sprays acrylic enamel in the bank.

3. twine, thread floss.

4. Beads.

5. Sleigh Bells (bells).

6. Glue.

In my work I use glue for ceiling tiles: it has no color, smells strong, sticks together firmly, but easily washed by hand.

7. Wire for needlework.

So, we picked up the keys and the five bells ringing now prepare them for painting, I posted them in a metal cover. Then be sure to get out into the fresh air. In the film we begin to spray paint, coloring our Keys thoroughly on both sides. Keys dried up and that’s what we got: Now zaymёmsya basis for our wind music: it must be a hoop. I chose a hoop with a diameter of 16 cm and only took the inner ring. Then we wrapped tightly wrap string: Then wrap wrapped diagonally thread floss: we use the soft blue color, in the future, it will overlap with the wind elements of music: It’s time to choose the color scheme, which will determine the beads and beads. We are making mounts for our base for our share of the circle into four equal parts and connect them strictly in the middle of the circle: Now we count the number of keys. Cut as much thread sewing with each subsequent thread should be slightly longer than the previous one, a sort of stage. Attach a simple winding thread on the base in use glue. Next is the long and laborious part of the work: for each thread strung beads and beads in this order, as the heart desires and tastes! After the beads are strung and left a small tip of the thread we attach the first key: Key put on the glue, thread wrapped neatly around the tab key. And so we are working with each thread. It follows that each subsequent key hung lower, but touched the previous one. After several hours of hard work, we are ready for the next step. Change the attachment to a neat and durable. We decorate our foundation. To do this, use a wire of gold color and crystals – drops of blue. Do not forget about the beads. Wires are twisted into a spiral, arbitrarily adding beads and crystals. It turns out delicate wreath that  our foundation. Entwine our foundation’s how beautiful it turns out: I key tone seemed warm enough and I decided to cover them paint a rich golden color. Gloves I never use, but you advise. Although the paint and so very easily washed away with warm water unnecessary chemical exposure to the skin you do not need. Now for the bells. Fasten each thread and tie them in a bundle, but so that each bell was on a different level. We hang the bells in the center of the composition, and enjoy 🙂 To all heard the wonderful sound.

How to make fashionable bag from old jeans

bag made of old jeans 1

Take the old jeans, which for some reason do not have to … nalazit beauty. Or just do not like already.

And a flick of the wrist, turn them into elegant shorts.

Then make a skirt of denim shorts. Beauty!!! The cool thing out. The only doubt that her mother would wear. Sighs and then continue. My bag out of old jeans will zauzhatsya down. Therefore sacrificed bottom folds.

Theoretically, they can be just scribbling. But I was not sure of the number and width. Because left is pinned.

Then I took a piece of my father’s overcoat (or, in the beautiful – greatcoat cloth), folded in half. Affixed to my denim skirt. Vd line first, and then the bag “spread her” and outlined a sort of a strange oval-rectangle (my mother – a teacher of mathematics from such a term she would definitely eye twitched!).

Pinned to her purse, she pulled down – admired. Attached to the bottom of the denim and looked around. She left a margin. Well, nothing! There was no need to leave anything.

Set aside. Basically, if you have patience ended, can be jotted wrinkles on the bag, stitched the bottom, sew the handle – and hello! Bag of old jeans ready! But! Mom wanted the bag into two compartments. With pocket!

I had to sacrifice a bathrobe. Old, but decent.

Fold it in half. I put in such a way that the top of the bag coincides with the hem. (Really too lazy to bend even the hem) .Prilozhim bag and leaving the stock, circle.

Cut out two pieces of the lining and how they. Insert in the bag. Admire! However, I have to admire the first time did not work – I pinned the lining across the bag and then all tried to understand that the train is not here ?! Cut out the jumper and denim from the robe. Sostrochim krasivenko More will need to mine for the lining. We cut him out of his robe. Skolem together.

And here it is the nightmare and began !!! LIGHTNING!! What I revised master-classes as descriptions revered! Those guys do not understand! It has made its own way. Wrong, perhaps, but just!

She took a split (which until the end unbuttoned) zipper, disunite and sew the two halves of my backing.

First time sewed to the front side. It turned out beautifully, but it turned out that the pad then it is necessary to sew inside out. Otporola and sewed the zipper as it should be – from the inside. Then he buttoned it and ends, and not to the slider jumps, small klaptikami jeans closed. Stitched (for me, as it turned out, even the foot is in the special machine to sew the zipper).

Encouraged by the success, I even made a near lightning decorative stitch!

The main thing – denim klaptiki scribbling on the zipper tightly! Otherwise, the slider will go into them. We’ll have to get it and spoil the manicure (we need this ?!).

But the zipper seemed to me a little! My eyes fell on her dressing gown pocket.

I otporola him and moved to the lining of the bag. I almost shed a few tears – what sort needlewoman !!

Next – just all posostrachivala, posobirali:

Sostrochila lining.

Sostrochila greatcoat bottom and denim. Scribbling folds that initially pinned on the bag. Stitched to the bottom of the bag. Sew lining. Do not think that just because the village and sew! No! The happiest moment pridelyvaniya lining up my understanding that the bag has a thing for a BELT !!! What underneath stitch machine ?! Maybe someone and there is a special foot, I was not there. Because I had to take a needle in the foot and part of the lining to sew by hand.

But – assembled bag! The case for small – pens!

Cut two long ribbons. To make amends for the edge (it to ostro chit does not turn out).

Inside invested little syntepon. Handbag sewed to mother – a teacher and she is wont to be laid in a handbag pile of notebooks, a couple of kilos of potatoes, a loaf, and so on. And I thought, just the harness, with no filler, it will put pressure on the shoulder. I stitched. Many times. Stitched into a ring. And sew it to her purse like this: So I turned and short handle and long. And so!!!! A solemn moment – Bags of old jeans READY !!!! The result was a spacious, light enough. Remarkably washed in the machine. And pockets – the dam!

Maman this bag is now out of the hands is not released. The pieces for the belt (!!!), then insert the belt, the handkerchief vent – every day is different and beautiful!

Sew! This I told for so long, and sew the bag of jeans – simple!

1.knitted fabric
2. tailor meter
3. Scissors

Let’s start:

Lay the fabric on a flat surface.

We have 8 strips on three centimeters wide. The length of strips depends on how long should be potted. The girl in the photo uses inches and cut the strips at 40 centimeters in length. Stretch the strip. The result should look like this. First, tie all the strips into one big knot. Tighten properly. Now divide the beam into four pairs. Measure out about 5 cm from the main unit and fasten by nodules on each pair. Do not tighten too tight – you can do so when the pot is inside. Now, again, divide the strips into pairs and tie knots, to get here are the diamonds. Repeat over and over again, departing at 5 centimeters from the previous node. For a small pot, as in these photos, it will be enough three levels. When macrame ready, put into the pot. If you like the nodules are located, you can tighten them tighter. Now the upper edge can be tied in a knot. Make sure the pot is hanging straight. Done! The color and length can be different.Elementary and very beautiful!
