How a Young Maker Helped Make Barbie More Inclusive

At 13, Jordan Reeves' Maker cred is already impressive. She created her own 3D-printed, unicorn horn-shaped, glitter-shooting prosthetic that fits her left arm, which ends just above the elbow.

Looking For Something?

If you've ended up here and this isn't what you were expecting, I've probably unpublished the post you were looking for.

I stopped posting here around the end of 2014 after 9 years of craft-blogging. Since then, I've unpublished most of the posts (900+), leaving the ones people still find useful (~50).

Introducing the Lucky Wristlet

There is at least one of you who has been waiting over 7 years for this pattern to be published! There are many more of you that have emailed over the years asking for this pattern. And now, here it is, the Lucky Wristlet, available as a free download.


I can't wait to see all the creative personal twists that you put on the pattern. There are so many ways to customize this using colors, materials, ribbons, etc. Plus it's a very quick project. You could have it done in a weekend. So far, no one's posted a project on Ravlery. Will you be the first? ;)

Portal Pumpkin!

A not-so-little slice of genius from Instructables user DracoGT. The legs and frame are PVC pipe and fittings, painted black. The eye is an inkjet printer transparency illuminated with an LED Tap Light. And the body, of course, is the predominant seasonal gourd, artfully cut to suggest armor plate.

Creepy Homemade Funhouse is Creepy (and Epic)!

So I recently stumbled upon the work of Ohio-based maker Keith Corcoran, and I'm in awe. Halloween is over, but I'm wishing I could go back in time and make a trip to Keith's "Funhouse" to experience the totality of his "haunt." A cotton candy cauldron, spooky skeleton doling out entry tickets, and a really creepy clown in a rocking chair are just some of the props littering his lawn.
