My frist Instructable is a string

 My first little "Instructable" comes with something very simple.

How to make a string to play or decorate out of shirts or T-shirts.  I use the strings to play horsewaggon with Isa or I put pom poms on them to make a B-day decoration. Anything you want.  The strings are cheap and can be made by the children.  If you have many t-shirts you can consider making string to knit yourself a rug!

Create, try, experiment

What can actually happen with all does poor abbandoned chocolate bunnys laying around all over the place? They can turn into nice rich Brownies.

After this experiment the kids got something like a bunny fever and found this good origami video. This are inflatable paper bunnys, amazing and fun to put into an envelope and brighten someones day. They made this whole army of bunnys in just a half hour.

Doin' Things

After Easter we the princess and I had lots of carrots we made for hanging on the easter tree, so we had to come up with a possible reuse.  Finding something was easy, she loves making hairpins out of things so we made some for her and her best friend.

I never in my life thought of making so much stuff for easter.  The eggs with natural dyes, decoration and more decoration,  bread lambs and cookies with bunny forms covered with pink and blue sugar.  Lots of fun this time.  The children are getting older and we have more time to just be together and crate.

Pasta making is lots of work but also so much fun.  So we get to do it a lot lately.  The dough below made very nice Ravioli filled with ricotta and mintleaves.

I also just got myself a new very good book from with lots of easy fun stuff to sew from Pip Lincolne.  "Meet me at Mike's" is full packed with groovy projects like this purse I made for a friend's B-Day.
