brokeness is the mother of invention

i am a total shaolin craftmaster, behold my MONKEY'S FIST !



i totally made that thing! crafternoon at keren's house.

100 ft of rope from the hardware store on bedford ave ($11.00) + keychain ($2.50) + youtube videos of knots = DOPE!



it's not perfect but its pretty cool.



looks like i bought it somewhere, no? (tell me sweet little lies!)

i also invented this thing:



the hangman's telephone cord noose jangle? i don't know.



i have like a million more feet of rope, gonna try and make more jangles! it's kinda fun.

ps i am totally incapable of taking photos without making a face today, sowwy

You should try making braided necklaces (and hoods) out of fabric scraps. They look kind of awesome. I downloaded a little booklet from the American Apparel website.
