It never ceases to amaze me, the amount of raw talent and creativity that exists in all of us. Yes, all of us. To one degree or another, whether nurtured 110% or simply left to play with now and again, the ever flowing creations that our imagination manifests into this reality reflect the power of the mind in truly amazing ways indeed.

DIY Cornhole Toss Tutorial


jandofabricsPlayed mostly at football games and as a form of competitive recreation, Cornhole, also known as corn toss, bean toss, or bag toss, is a lawn game where players take turns throwing bags of corn (or beans) at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. The objective is to get the bag in the hole until the individual or team reaches 21 points. The first one to get there wins.

Ask Netfah: Cornhole Toss Fabrics


 

Dear Netfah,

With the Super Bowl right around the corner and my team in the running, I was interested in making those cornhole toss games for our party. I have the boards and the beans, now I just need the bags. What fabrics would you recommend ? I heard duck cloth was good.

When compiling our favorite costume ideas for women this year, we tried to tap into what is popular right now in the media. For example, our favorite costume idea for women this year is the Black or White swan from best picture nominee Black Swan. Now, we aren’t expecting ladies to run out and get replicas of couture designer Rodarte’s unreal tutus, but there are certainly ways that you can pull this look together yourself using some well placed thick feather boas.

 

#1: Black/ White Swan
