Me And My Dremel

So happy tooooooogether….


For some reason, I’ve wanted a Dremel since I was about 12. No clue why, but apparently it just sounded cool to me. Some recent projects finally gave me a good excuse to get one, and I’m in love. (This isn’t a sponsored post, I swear.)

I went with the Dremel 200 because I wanted a corded drill (and because it was one of the cheaper options). Note – the drill bits and the collets that let you actually attach the bits are sold separately. I had to make several trips to the store to get it up and going.

I’ve been using it a ton this week to work on various projects for our new shop, The Discerning Gnome. I’ve been making polyhedral dice bracelets like the ones I showed you last week:


And most recently, I’ve been drilling and embroidering to make these super cool string art notebooks. I’m crazy about these! (A tutorial for these might be coming soon… Stay tuned!)
