Do-Inspire-Yourself #2

ready for some great design to stimulate your 

DIY side of the brain?


wood and knitting.

I love how the sharp edges of the wood morph into the soft woven and knitted textile and back.
I'm not sure I could place this piece into my home, but I just love it.

from leather shoes to pillow.

Ok, I'm not sure how I feel about this. The "old used shoes" part creeps me out. On the other side, I wouldn't mind if it would be made with just old, un-sold shoes.
But it is interesting, for sure a "think outside the box" kind of thing.
By designer Baptiste Viry (who has also lots of cool jewelry in her site).

Totally obsessed.
Maxi knitting needles or maxi crochet hook: either way, I am so going to make a rug!
I have this idea on my mind ever since I've seen these one year ago or so, and it's still stuck on my head.
It's going to happen, ... soon!

More maxi rugs and other things 
that make me wish for more time and endless empty rooms


don't throw away wine corks. nor old denim.

...because you can make a heck of a lot of stuff with these!
Hop over at Dishfunctional Designs for a round-up of ideas all "corky" or all "denim blue": there is something for everyone!
