Bohemian Inspiration on Instagram "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Although I set the end of the Bohemian Summer Series to the actual, calendar end of the summer, somehow I don't feel inclined to stop there, so most probably it will stretch all throughout the year.

As I love starting Mondays with inspiration boosts, here's a selection of fabulous bohemian related Instagram accounts. Enjoy!

Harry Potter Party Ideas "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

  When my daughter turned ten, we wanted to do something special for her. She hadn’t had an official ‘birthday party’ with friends in a couple of years, so this year we gave her the choice. She could pick the kind of party she wanted (within reason), and I would do my best to make it […]

More party shots "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

The easy long cardigan, a staple in your wardrobe "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

easy long cardigan

This is a super easy project.  You’ll see that there isn’t a long tutorial because the design and construction are so simple.  This cardigan is very minimalistic and streamlined –perfect for the busty girl.  I have used tulle in the back to add a bit of drama but it is completely optional and you could use the same knit fabric to make the project even simpler.

The easy long cardigan is a design that has been around since the sixties.  A favorite of women who have to step out in their pajamas to drop the kids at school.  At least that is what we see in the movies, isn’t it?  The fact is that it is a staple in women’s wardrobes. Worn with leggings and a tank top or shorts and heels, it is the perfect accessory to hide your bottom.  Yes you read right.

easy long cardigan

Sydney, Australia

There’s a little backstory to this design that I’d like to share with you.  I was living in Sydney, Australia in 2001 when my mother came to visit.  As far as I can recall, my mother never worn pants before that.  In Sydney, winter weather is usually glorious except for a couple of weeks when it can get down to 10 degrees C or 50 degrees F and it’s often windy.  As you can imagine, coming from tropical Panama, my mom’s wardrobe was not adequate, so we went in search of warmer clothes.

I had jeans in mind, but she refused to wear them.  Her reasons shocked me.  She said my father had told her 30 years back that she did not look good on pants.  Determined to prove him wrong, I invited my mother to sit with me at a cafe and watch the people walking by.   The women in Sydney were comfortable in jeans.  That is what she saw and I was pleased.  However, she was still hesitant to give it a try, so I made her an easy long cardigan.  This would keep her warm and provide her some –what I personally felt was unnecessary– modesty.  It did the trick and she’s literally worn that same easy long cardigan (and pants..) ever since.  I wanted to share the concept with you.  Let’s call it Sydney.



Tutorial - How to Make Sesame Street Baked Goods "IndyWatch Feed Craft"
Fun activity to do with your toddler for a great party dessert

Tutorial at Just Measuring Up Blog

"The desserts were my favorite part of our Sesame Street party. Based on the rave reviews, I think they were my guests' favorite part too. I just loved how the cake turned out... so much that I was actually sad cutting into it.  It was a 12" two-layer, gluten-free vanilla cake with chocolate icing. Red sprinkles covered the sides of the cake, along with two Elmo face cut-outs - made from cut-out cookies and chocolate melts. The cupcakes were regular vanilla cake with chocolate icing and decorated with sprinkles, icing tubes, and chocolate chip cookie halves to resemble Elmo and Cookie Monster".... Read more

Floating Roses Bangle "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

by Rossella. (Italy) I have so many ideas about my resin creations, and this is the one I am working during September. Roses everywhere! I created a resin bangle with a bunch of red rose petals, and also a mini rosebud inside. Quite tricky to obtain the floating effect, but worth it. And following the […]


Copper and Ocean Jasper Statement Necklace "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

by Diana Stiles. (Amherst, MA) I hand cut thin copper tubing into small spacers and forged heavy copper pipe, applying a natural fume patina of turquoise and brown speckle. Likewise, I used my home made patina on copper washers; using two washers and a toggle clasp allows the necklace to be worn in two lengths. […]


Jewelry Accounting "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

by Jane Petersen. (Madison, WI) Has anyone ever used the Jewelry Designer Manager or other software for tracking supplies and sales? I use an Excel program, but it has its limitations plus I have no record of what finished product I’ve sold. This program, from what I’ve discerned from their website, uses photos. Is it […]

I used flexible jewelry cord along with […]


Autumn Leaves in Metal and Chainmaille "IndyWatch Feed Craft"
