Hi guys,

The Book of Deer link doesn't work and I'm really interested in seeing the tutorial. I'd like to make Mori-style necklace.

Best regards

Monika: The link to the Book of Deer post is here: http://bookofdeer.com/blog/2012/03/09/the-mori-girl-handbook/

But there's not really a tutorial. There is a super tiny image of 'instructions'. The image can be saved & zoomed in, which may be useful if you can read Japanese...

I've only made lanterns, out of this batch, before. All of these projects look like so much fun. Would love to try the viewmaster project....maybe next weekend. I have a weekend of shoots in Victoria. Happy Canada Day Jan!

Hi Monika and Kat - i fixed the link and yes the image isn't the best, i thought it enlarged. sorry about that - i didn't say these were tutorials - but if one really wanted to make one - you could either crochet or sew the doilies weaved into a chain, or this one looks sewn and glued onto a leather cord.

The headphones!! They are lovely. Someone in one of my photography classes a few years ago made a Viewmaster project using their own photos - it was pretty awesome. I'd love to try it.

Thanks for sharing!
