Eli and Elm Sheets Review – Should You Buy Bamboo or Cotton Bedding?

[background music] Sarah Riccio: Hey, guys. It’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Let me guess. You’re interested in Eli & Elm sheets. Well, you’ve come to the right place becausetoday, we’re going to dive into all three bedding collections that Eli & Elm has tooffer. Stay tuned. We’re looking at the Cool Sheet Set from Eli& Elm’s Whitney Collection, the Bamboo Sheet Set from the Wharf Collection, and the OrganicCotton Sheet Set from the Ferry Collection. I want to start with the Cool Sheet Set because,frankly, I’m a very hot sleeper. I really can’t resist a cooling set of sheets. Now, when I first unboxed this sheet set,my first reaction was, “Wow, they’re not kidding. These sheets are very cool to the touch.” More than just breathable, they felt likethey had been refrigerated. We’ll get into a little bit more about whythey feel so cool in a second, but let me tell you, rubbing my hands all over the material,they feel icy crisp to the touch.Let’s get into more details about why theyfeel so cool and find out if they actually stay that cool after they’ve been washed. The Cool Sheet Set is sateen woven into a400 thread count and made from a blend of long staple cotton, lyocell, and phase changematerial. The cotton is giving me this soft, breathablefeel that many of us have become familiar with. The fact that it’s long-staple cotton is addingsome strong durability to the fabric as well. What about those other two ingredients? Lyocell is a cellulosic fiber made from dissolvingwood pulp that usually goes by its name brand Tencel. It’s frequently featured in the world of beddingalso in clothing. It’s known for being super soft, resistantto wrinkles, and naturally moisture-wicking. That ability to wick moisture is going tohelp the sheet set stay cool and help you stay fresh and dry throughout the night.Meanwhile, the phase change material is whattakes the cooling properties of the sheet set to the next level. I do dive into deeper detail about what exactlygoes into the process of making phase change material. Basically, phase change material also knownas PCM is woven into the fabric. It’s what’s giving it that icy crisp, notablycool-to-the-touch feel. Because it’s woven into the fabric, it’s meantto stay cool no matter how many times you wash it. That said, I have put the sheet set throughthe wash and dry cycle. While it’s not as icy cool as when I firstunboxed it, I’m pretty impressed at how cool it still is. Again, it’s worth noting that both these sateensheen that comes with the sheet set and the cooling properties of the PCM are going todiminish a little bit over time and after you run them through the wash.Each sheet set comes with one top sheet, twopillowcases, and one fitted sheet capable of accommodating mattresses up to 15 inchesdeep. There’s a lot that I’m loving about thesesheets. I think that sleepers who run hot are goingto be particularly compatible with them. Thanks to the phase change material, theydo feel so cool and soothing against my skin. Like I said, I’m a year-round hot sleeper. I could definitely see myself getting year-rounduse with this sheet set. Another thing that I think is unique aboutthe sheet set is its blending of percale and sateen traits. What I mean by that is percale sheets areknown for being crisp and cool and matte in appearance, whereas sateen sheets are knownfor being very silky and lustrous.The sheets has a little of all of that goingon because they are sateen-woven. You are getting this very pretty light lusterand a silky smooth feel, but the phase change material is giving it a crisp feel as well. Like I said, the feel is unique. I don’t think I’ve felt a sheet set that feelsexactly like this one before. The other thing is the Tencel is working tokeep you fresh and dry. You got the PCM that’s working to keep youcool. The moisture-wicking ability of the Tencelis keeping you fresh and dry, so definitely recommending this to sleepers who run hot.All that said, there are a few things to considerbefore you commit to buying the sheet set. First of all, while it does feel very coolto the touch, it’s worth noting that that cool crispness does diminish a little bitafter you wash it. Same thing with that lustrous sateen sheen. Again, this is a common thing in my experienceparticularly with sateen sheets. That luster does diminish a little bit afteryou wash them. It’s worth noting that these sheets are notgoing to stay as icy cold as they did when you first unbox them forever. Another thing about this sheet set is it certainlynot the least expensive sheets that are on the block, ranging from about $279 to $300depending on the size set that you get. The fact of the matter is these sheets arenot going to be in everyone’s budget.These are a little out of your price range. That’s something to consider. Lastly, this sheet set does only come in white. If you’re looking for a wide range of playfulcolor options, this might not be the right one for you. [music] Sarah: Next up is the Organic Cotton SheetSet. Right away, even before I took it out of thepackaging, I could tell that this sheet set is going to offer the most classically cottonfeel. It’s very super soft and breathable and thiscozy, familiar cotton feeling. It’s not got that crisp cotton feel. It’s more smooth. As a sateen lover, I’m pretty fond of that.Another thing I’m noticing is that while itis breathable, it does feel almost like a little bit warm and cozy. I’m almost getting the sense that while Iknow these are going to be less cool because they don’t have phase change material likewe just saw in the Cool Sheet Set, almost getting the sense that these might lie a littlebit heavier on the body. Let’s take a closer look at what these sheetsfeel like and what exactly they’re made of. As you might have guessed these sheets aremade from 100 percent organic cotton. The cotton used in this sheet set is longstaple cotton. That’s the way to go because the longer thecotton fibers, also known as cotton staples, the more durable the sheet set is going tobe.In addition to better durability, you’re gettingbetter color retention, better resistance to pilling. Again, it’s a best-case scenario. The longer the fiber, the better the sheetset. These sheets feature a sateen weave, whichis giving it more of a silky smooth hand feel as opposed to a crisp cotton hand feel. Folks who are less into that starkly crispfeel and more into that smooth hand feel might be particularly compatible with this.One thing that a sateen weave does lend itselfto is more vulnerability to wrinkles. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed that’s the case. Now, I have already run these sheets throughthe wash and dry cycle. In my experience, it is best to pull it outof the dry cycle as soon as it’s done so that you’re spreading these sheets out over themattress when they’re still warm and wrinkle-free. That will serve to keep some of the wrinklesat bay. However, you can, if you hate wrinkles, ironthese sheets on a low setting. That will completely eliminate the wrinkles,but worth noting that these sheets are a little wrinkly. Each sheet set comes with one top sheet, twopillowcases, and one fitted sheet capable of fitting mattresses up to 15 inches deep.There’s a lot that I’m liking about this sheetset. First of all, not only is the cotton certifiedorganic, but it’s also a product of Fair Trade manufacturing, which basically means thatthe folks who harvest those cotton must be paid a living wage. If both ethically sourced and eco-friendlysheets is an important factor for you, you might want to consider these. Another thing is the long staples, like Isaid, are giving the cotton some great durability, but the sateen weave is really giving youthis nice, silky smooth hand feel. If you’re more into a smooth feel as opposedto a crisp one, this might be right up your alley.Another thing that the sateen weave givesis the pretty light luster. I will say that it diminishes a little bitover time, especially the more you wash it. The more you wash it, it also gets softer. If you’re into that silky smooth feel alongwith that light luster, you might want to give this a try. All that said, there are a few things to considerabout the sheet set before you commit to buying it. The sateen weave is giving it more of a silkysmooth feel and less of a crisp feel. If you’re into that like crisp cotton hotelbed feel, then these might not be for you. They’re not very crisp. Like I said, very smooth. Another thing is as I suspected, they do lieheavier on the body.They’re a little bit less breathable. That’s generally the case with sateen-wovensheets. Sateen-woven sheets tend to be less breathablethan percale sheets. They are going to keep you a little more warmand cozy and a little less cool. [music] Sarah: Last but not least is my personal favorite,the Bamboo Sheet Set from The Wharf Collection. You can probably already guessed that thesheet set is made from bamboo.When I first unboxed it, first thing I thinkis, “Oh, this is why I love bamboo-based bedding.” It’s silky. It’s light. It’s lustrous. It feels so soft and soothing on your skin. Like I said, we know it’s made from bamboo,but let’s talk a little bit more about the specific advantages that come from bamboo-basedbedding. These sheets are made from 100 percent viscosefrom bamboo and woven into a light and breathable 300 thread count. Bamboo-based bedding does come with some reallyunique wonderful advantages. First of all, it’s got this natural luster,this silky feel. Also, bamboo-based bedding is notorious forits strong durability, antimicrobial properties. Eco-friendly sleepers might like to know thatbamboo is a sustainably sourced material. There’s a little bit of that sleep green factorat play there. Also, bamboo bedding is naturally moisture-wicking. In addition to this light, breezy feel, you’realso getting this moisture-wicking property that’s going to help stave off those nightsweats. Comparatively, the Cool Sheet Set does havethat PCM so it feels cooler to the touch, but these are also going to be a great pickfor hot sleepers because they’re light, breathable, breezy, and they feel so silky and cool onyour skin.This sheet set, like the others, does comewith one top sheet, two pillowcases, and one fitted sheet capable of accommodating mattressesup to 15 inches deep. There’s a lot that I’m loving. This is my personal favorite sheet set. Let’s talk about who’s going to be most compatible. First of all, this is a great eco-friendlybedding option. Bamboo is a sustainably sourced material. Bamboo bedding is also naturally hypoallergenic. If you’re looking to sleep green, if you’vegot sensitive skin, this is not a bad idea. Another thing is this bedding offers thisvery silky feel, this really beautiful luster that drapes over your body and the mattressin this shape-silhouetting way that my opinion improves the aesthetic of the whole bedroom. Another thing is bamboo-based bedding, becauseit does come with these wonderful unique-to-bamboo advantages, often comes with a higher pricetag.In my opinion, these sheets are a great valueranging from about $120 to $150. They’re not the least expensive bamboo-basedbetting that I’ve ever tested, but they’re certainly not the most expensive. They’re about middle of the road but, in myopinion, a great value for what you’re getting. Not to mention, you do have 45 days to testthis bedding before you commit. A few things to consider about these sheetsbefore you commit to buying them.First of all, that silky feel is also contributingto a little bit of a slippery feel. Folks who like that crisp feel, these mightnot necessarily be up your alley. Also, the pillowcases do a little bit of slippingand sliding on the sheets because they are very silky. It’s something to keep in mind. Another thing is bamboo bedding does havea reputation for being very wrinkly. I will say that when I first unboxed thesesheets, they were riddled with wrinkles, but I’m pleased to say that after I washed anddried them, not only do they feel softer, but the wrinkles shook out nicely. Now, if you really hate wrinkles, you caniron these on a low setting.If you want to know more about the specificcare instructions for this bedding, I do dive into all that detail in my full written review,which is linked below.

So this month we wanted to focus on somethingthat is inter-seasonal so we wanted to launch our bamboo range that is actually good forour Australian customer that is kind of like autumy and good for our European also US customerthat is going towards spring and summer.So first of all I wanted to launch two fabricsthat I’m gonna do a bit of a comparison. Now we’re gonna have a new product code for thisthe SNEW code that I’m telling you in a second they’re just only a temporary code. So this is SNEW85 as you can see, let me putit back a little, it’s a little bit shiny, it’s 100%bamboo rayon and is 140gsm whereasthis one is less shiny as you can see it’s a bit matte, it’s bamboo rayon as well it’s150gsm.So this kind of material is so beautiful thatyou can make a lot of things out of it, you know, you can even consider making this sleepwearor shirt, shirtdress, of you can even make it kind of a top, you know for casual wearthat you can really go out to wear it at the same time youknow you can make it into a dressthat you can make it into semi casual that go in to work etc. beautiful fabric, it’s sosoft, this kind of material, if it touch on your skin, it’s got a natural softness andcoolness on it. And then the two material that we wanted tolaunch is this is bamboo rayon fine twill, and this is bamboo twill. I’m gonna make it a bit closer and you cansee the fabric has a bit of a shine on it in the yarn and the fabric is actually youcan see the light pattern it’s a bit of a diagonal twill, hope you can see it.And this one has a more obvious twill as youcan see.

How to Cut Lillypilly Copper Sheets

hi this is julie with beadaholique.com pursuits so i’ve laid out an assortment here and i have a couple different styles going obviously and you’ll see i have different embossed patterns and then i also have different patinas on top of them one thing i do want to let you know is that this is actually the same patina but it’s a different coverage and these are all gonna vary of course these are different sheets because one is embossed and one isn’t but the patina you’ll see even if it’s the same style of patina the actual pattern and the amount it covers is going to vary which makes for really unique art pieces so I’ve got these wonderful embossed sheets and also a couple solid ones too that are thirty six gauge thirty-six gauge isn’t gonna be it’s really flexible I can just bend it with my hands is not taking any strength and then I’ve also got a much stronger very sturdy 24 gauge sheet as well and these are all in the copper you’ll see they’ve got their nice copper backs I have an inspiration project here that I’ve done and that’s a little headband where I’ve taken the lillypilly copper sheets actually cut a round to fit within the bezel setting here and then I took little ones that I hole punched and then I just curled their edges with my fingers so I want to show you how easy this is to cut I’ve got some sheets here I’ve already been working on now if you’re working with a 36 gauge you can cut it with a pair of scissors you can just go like that so you can get nice curves to it or if you like you can cut it with a pair of metal shears it’s gonna cut real easy as well and what’s great about the 36 gauge is you can actually hold punch it with a paper punch now bear in mind paper punches were not intended for this purpose so it is going to wear down your paper punch a lot quicker than if you’re using paper all you have to do put it in there and what’s nice you can actually see where you’re gonna punch it and I like to use both hands so I put it over it squeeze and it punches a little circle for you or whatever shape punch you have you can tell it does ruffle the edges a little bit and you can just flatten that out with your fingers or if you like you can curve it up into whatever shape you desire the edges will be a little bit sharp this is nice and rounded here but if you had a paper cutter that had square corners they are going to be a little bit sharp so bear that in mind now if you wanted to use the 24 gauge copper sheeting what you’re going to need to cut it with is not a pair of scissors but you will need your middle shears or a jeweler saw and so to cut this you can see I’ve already cut a little notch just cut it like so and it’s very easy to cut and again it will have some sharp edges so you might want to file those down with a diamond file now another option in addition to the paper punches are metal hole punches I’ve got a little round one here a 1.8 millimeter and you’ll see it all you have to do put the sheet between the two noses and punch you have a perfect little hole and that is all there is to cutting and using the lillypilly copper sheets you

How to play ALL the notes on the recorder! | Team Recorder

Hello everybody. I’m Sarah and I’m a recorder player Now over here at Team Recorder I do a lot of videos that have advanced techniques or they go very In-depth and we really go into things that you can get your teeth into but I also want this channel to be totally accessible for people who might have just picked up the instrument hence this video how to play all the notes on the recorder *recorder playing* But I am going to show All the notes so whether you’ve just started or you’ve been playing for a few years And you want to know how to play that top, top, top A-flat there is something in this video for you Did you know the recorder is Completely chromatic and it can play nearly three octaves of range We tend to think of the recorder of having a small limited range, but that’s just not true And I’m going to show you all of that I’m going to show it first on the soprano recorder this works also for tenor Then I’m going to show it again on the alto recorder this also works for sopranino, and I’m going to have my handy Laptop screen next to me showing how the note is written down with every note I’m also going to put the kind of code I use as a fingering system the thumb that you close the back whole with is 0 Then you have finger 1 2 3 and then on your right hand 4 5 6 7 The hole at the end of your recorder is number 8 if the number is written down It should be closed if it’s not written down It should be open and if it has a little line (-) after it it should be half open This is especially common for the thumb or for the double holes at the bottom so for example on the soprano F-sharp will be 0 1 2 3 5 6 4 and 7 are open And the last thing this is a lot of notes imagine you want to look up one specific note and you don’t want to sit through this whole fascinating video I am planning to take the time to put the links to every note down in the description below, so don’t forget to check that out *music* Starting with the soprano recorder The lowest note on the soprano is C It is notated like this But it’s worth knowing that the soprano recorder sounds an octave higher than it’s notated We don’t notate at pitch because then it would look really really high on the music and be confusing.Let’s get into it C all holes covered C sharp or D flat all holes covered but the little finger is open halfway remember that, that stripe D D sharp E flat E F F-sharp G flat G G sharp A flat A A Sharp more commonly known as B flat B C C-sharp D flat Without the thumb D D sharp or E Flat, my favorite note And from here, we’re pinching the back hole so it’s open halfway E F F-sharp G flat G G-sharp a flat bit of a tricky one A A sharp, B-flat And depending on your recorder, you might not need your little finger B C Now we’re getting to the exciting bit Remember the hole at the end of your recorder you can cover this with your leg, hole number eight C sharp D flat D D D sharp E flat Again, depending on your recorder you might not need your right hand fingers E F F Sharp Annnd G *RIP recorder players* Yes it is possible to go higher, but ermmm Those notes are a bit more experimental I think this is high enough and just to say that is we have the low B Close all the holes on the recorder and then half at the bottom hole with your knee Whoo-hoo-hoo let’s do that all again with the alto recorder Now the reason I’m doing this again with the alto is because it’s in the key of F instead of C, and we read the music differently Recorder players very clever, so you use the same finger rings but then a different note comes out Starting at the bottom the low F, the sounding pitch.This is all the holes covered F-sharp or G-flat G G sharp or A flat A A Sharp or B flat B C C sharp or D flat D D sharp or E flat A nice easy one, E F F Sharp or G flat G, no thumb G sharp or A flat From now on the thumb hole will be around half open A Sharp or B flat B C C sharp or D flat, bit of a tricky note D D sharp or E flat Little finger optional depending on the tuning of your instrument E Oh, I’ll do that one again F Again, we’re getting into that part of our recorder where we close hole number eight with our knee starting with the F sharp G Flat G G sharp or A flat Maybe you need to tune this with some fingers from the right hand A A Sharp or B flat B And C, and if you’re still following all of these ledger lines you are a genius And yes, we’re going to go all the way back down To our nice low E, which is everything covered and then half of the bottom hole with your knee Haha, so as you can see we have easily covered a range of two octaves and a sixth, with a bit of Experimenting and some heart blowing.I think you can get around three octaves, not bad for an instrument that people see as “limited” And the great and wonderful and terrible thing about the recorder is that every single note can be played in multiple different ways Here, I have chosen to give the most common ones so if you’ve learnt a different B-flat for example Don’t worry yours is probably still valid So Team Recorder, I hope that this video is a helpful resource for you Anytime you’re playing some new piece, and you’re thinking. OMG. How did I play that note again? Last week, I brought up the idea of the video on tuning and you were all extremely enthusiastic So yes my tuning video will be coming next week If you have been enjoying Team Recorder Did you know you can choose to support the channel on patreon? I really want my channel to be free and open and accessible for everybody So only support the channel if it’s something you’re able to do and you want to do But that will be really nice As always you can subscribe to my channel by clicking On my small face down here in the recorder The link to my patreon page is up here And over here, I’m going to put a link to….To, my improvisation challenge video because that was so much fun to make and I always forget it exists Thanks for watching Team Recorder and have a lovely day Bye.



How to Make a Sofa Bed

Today were gonna make a sofa that turns into a chaise long a bed, has storage underneath and even a coffe table. Let’s Begin! I need a place for friends and family to sit when they come over. I made a few sketches and small scale models to visualize what I was looking for but none of them seemed to work both aesthetically and functionally Until I came up with this simple looking idea. I challenged myself to create this piece of furniture without using any specific metal hardware to flip. The width is around 1 meter and it was made to fit a specific place near my desk. So the way I built this is appropriate for small sofas and if your idea is to make it larger than 1 meter, you should reinforce the sitting board with steel bar or try some design changes. I used 2 sheets of 21mm birch plywood and you can build the whole project using just a circular saw and a drill. I will use some other power tools because I have them.I got the main cuts done at the lumber store and now I am getting everything perfectly sized. To join the pieces together I utilized a doweling jig from Rockler that is really easy to use and I get perfect results with it. I just simply created lines on the pieces to be connected and then aligned the mark on the jig with the pencil line. Clamp it and drill the hole. The same goes for the vertical holes. Then I grab some 3/8th or 9,5 mm dowels and glue everything in place. Since I don’t have many clamps, I had to wait for every joint to be glued to move on to the next one.The back of the bottom module will be closed and I thought it was better to insert the back piece in place and trace the pencil line so I could later repeat the doweling process and get it nicely fitted. This bar clamp came out very convenient I could slide off the jaw, insert the bar in the tight space between the other clamps and then reattach the jaw in the correct position. On the bottom module I screwed two strips of plywood instead of a full board because it just wasn’t necessary and would make the whole box much heavier for no good reason Checking for fit and seems good that I can still slide out the bottom module with me stitting over the main module, which means the birch plywood doesnt flex that much. I cleaned the burned edges a bit before going ahead and cut the triangles for the backboard. I just quickly made a jig for my table saw to easily cut the diagonals for these two rectangles.I always like to check how things are going before attaching and gluing them together. I marked the ends of the triangles so I knew where to glue them and repeated all the doweling jig procedures. Just pay attention to how deep you are drilling the holes so you dont end up going all the way through the material. I used the complementary triangle to help with the clamping. While the glue was drying I added a back piece to the main seat module. I just want to take a few seconds to thank all my patreon supporters I’m actually providing the plans for this project to all my patrons as a manner of saying thank you for all the amazing support and being waiting so patiently I’ll put the link below in case you want to take a look.I scraped off the glue and flushed everything with a block plane. To make the drawer I wanted to use some scraps of plywood and hardboard that I had, since they didnt matter as much in terms of aspect. So I brought the table saw out, like I usually do to avoid making big quantities of dust inside and was actually quite hard to find a moment to make these cuts since it was raining so much all the time on the last weeks here in Porto. So I cut the two sides for the drawer and the false front from the same birch plywood I used in the project and the front and back from the other random plywood I had. I needed to create a groove for the bottom piece to fit in so I removed the splitter from the insert plate and sneaked the cut until I got it right.You can also use a router to make this groove or even the circular saw as I mentioned before that this project can be done just using it along with a drill. I didnt want any nails or screws showing up on the sides of the drawer so I created sort of a rabbet to join the pieces together with pin nails and screws that will later be covered by the false front. The drawer was pretty big so I thought it was a good idea to add some hardwood strip in the middle So I created some pockets for the wood strip and finally glued and attach the drawer pieces At this point the drawer didnt fit inside the module spacing adding the drawer slides So I had to remove a bit of material on each side At first I was really annoyed but then I accepted the mistake and ended up turning it into a nice visual detail. So I painted it white because the inner plies dont look as good as the outer faces of the plywood and also painted the hardboard for the drawer bottom and cut it to size by removing all the edges that weren’t in good shape.Made some final touch on the drawer side and then I inserted and screwed the bottom board. I wanted to get rid of that dark spot on the face of the drawer so i cut the hole for the hand with that intention in mind. I dont have a vise and these handscrew clamps come really handy when holding workpieces to the table.These strips will bring the top of the module fairly leveled to the main sitting module so you dont feel uneveness when you set it up to bed mode. Here I traced the contours on both parts to find the exact center of the squares. Then I drilled some holes and sliced a 15 mm dowel to fit in half of the holes. Those little bumps will allow the strips to engage with the module. Now its time to figure out the correct spot for the pivot point. There are endless options but in my case, I wanted to preserve as much as possible of the sitting surface as well as getting the smallest gap possible when the backboard is positioned horizontally. I had to make sure I got enough clearance for the pivoting action to happen so that the backboard doesnt hit the horizontal board. Also, when we push the backboard down, the square angle of the triangle wants to go below the floor, which, in fact, makes the sitting module lift a bit when the rotation occurs.But that doesnt really matter and it will work just fine. Just make sure no one is sitting on the sofa when you push it down This is what I used to hold the backboard to the sitting module. I dont know how these are called, but I guess they are very commonly used in outdoor wooden furniture. I clamped a piece of wood to prevent tear out and threaded the metal fasteners with two hex keys. Turned out that the triangles were a bit too small to match the height of the sides of the sofa so I had to glue a strip of wood. I also painted it white to match the detail on the sides of the drawer and this way everything seems more connected. Before painting, I filled the nail holes and some wood defects and let it to dry.I then sanded everything nicely and masked the areas for the paint. This is a jig I made specifically to drill holes in the exact same place on each edge of different pieces. I will be connecting the triangles with powerful magnets but at this point I wasnt sure I would need something else to assure its stability. So I had the idea of having some wedges reinforcing the connection of the triangles but then I realized that the magnets were holding both pieces very firmly so there was no need to use the wedges.I needed to add a little dowel though, just to prevent the outer triangles to slide off while the rotation occurs. I finally sanded everything smooth by hand and applied four coats of acrylic matt varnish with light sanding in between. I reattached the backboard to the sitting module and made sure it was working just fine. Then I traced the thickness of the false front so I could screw the drawer slides in the proper place. I put some scrap plywood and two metal strips inside the cabinet to raise the drawer just a tiny bit and screwed it to the slides.I removed some material from the inside front to clear out the hole for the hand and installed the main front in place. Now lets work on the fluffy part of the project. Yet not so fluffy for my patience I used 8 cm good quality foam and wrapped it with some polyester batting. I used spray adhesive to stick the materials together and repeated the process for the three foams pieces. This is the fabric and here I was trying to figure out how to sew it. It wasn’t easy and I was lucky to have an old floor cushion to study how the folds were made. Still, I couldnt figure it out just by looking at it assembled, so I tore it apart to clearly see what was going on on each fold. I inserted and removed the foam three times to make sure it was going well in each sewing step and I must say it is a pain in the ass to insert them but it the end it worked really well. I just didnt want to make the cushions all separate because I was afraid they would wiggle around too much when sitting and laying on the sofa, so thats why I ended up making sort of a mattress that is foldable.Aaaand its done. I feel proud of being able to bring this idea to shape that is full of small details that you might not see when looking at the overall piece. And I am really happy that I turned the small mistakes into design details that actually give the whole piece an unique look and personality. So I hope you enjoyed this project as well as the story of how I built it even though it came out pretty short and compressed. For more details check out the Plans that can be found in the description. The sofa is plenty strong for the purpose and I accomplished the idea of turning a sofa into a multi functional piece of furniture without using any specific metal hardware, and I hope this can be interesting to you as well. All right Thank you so much for watching and sticking until the end of the video and a big thanks to Rockler for making this project possible Sooo…I’ll catch you guys later.



Cooking Tips : How to Roll Sushi

To make a sushi roll first you need to startoff with some ingredients. You want to make sure that you have your seaweed, your filling,your rice, a bowl of water, and a towel ready to go. And you should also have a bamboo rollercovered in plastic wrap. The plastic wrap will help keep everything from sticking toit. First we are going to put down our seaweed wrap and the way you can tell between a goodpiece of seaweed is darker a color it is the better quality it is. Okay, next I am goingto take some rice and the rice should be sticky rice. You want to make sure that you do makethe sushi rice. It does make a big difference. And I am just going to press it into my seaweed.And because it is sticky that is what your bowl of water is for.You are just going torinse your fingers off, grab more rice, and press it in. Okay, once you have your riceall put together you want to make sure that you do leave a little bit of space right hereso when we roll it up it has something to stick to. Next I am going to add my fillingsinto the roll. And here we are just going to do a very simple cucumber roll. Okay, nowit is time to roll. So what I am going to do is I am going to take my bamboo mat andI am going to use that to fold over my roll.From here you are going to use your bamboomat and pull it tightly as you roll it. Once you have the first roll you are just goingto use your bamboo mat to continue to roll. As you roll make sure each time that you arepressing tightly so that everything holds together.And that is your sushi roll. From here to make sure you get even cuts what you wantto do is first cut it right down the middle. And to have even pieces from there go aheadand take that and we are going to cut it down the middle again.From here you can continueto cut to desired thickness. And that is how you make a sushi roll..



Purple Sheets Review – Are Bamboo Sheets Soft and Stretchy Enough?

[background music] Sarah: Hey, guys. It’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Purplebed sheet. As you can see I haven’t even unboxed themyet. I’m just as excited as you are to see what’sinside. Now, some of you might already be familiarwith Purple’s mattresses or the Purple pillow. If you want to check out our reviews of thosePurple products, just Google Sleepopolis Purple and it’ll be the first things that pop up.For this review, we’ll be taking a close examinationof Purple’s bed sheets. I’m going to show you what I like about them,what I’m not crazy about, and for whom I think these sheets might be particularly beneficial. Of course, there is a wide world of beddingout there. If after this video you’re not so sure thatthis sheet set is the right one for you, just Google Sleepopolis Best Sheets and we’ll helpyou find the one that is. All right, let’s get started. [background music] Sarah: OK, this I’m fully keeping for a hairband. I officially got the sheets out of the boxand onto the mattress. Right away, I’m thinking there’s no way thisis bamboo-based bedding because every set of bamboo sheets I’ve ever tested have beenvery wrinkly.As you can see, these are completely wrinkle-free. They have this smooth look. I’m just impressed that they are, in fact,made from a blend of viscose from bamboo and spandex. Now, the folks at Purple say that bamboo-basedfabric makes for the best bed sheets. While that is, of course, a subjective opinion,the fabric derived from bamboo does have a reputation for being naturally breathable,moisture-wicking, super soft. If you want to know more about the perks ofbamboo-based bedding, I do go into deeper detail in my full written review, which islinked below. Now, as you can see, I’ve got it in the sandcolor. That’s what it’s called, sand. However, Purple does offer their sheet setsin a variety of colors, including their signature purple color, which from what I’ve seen isvery purple. What are you getting with each Purple sheetset? You’re getting a top sheet, a fitted sheet,and two pillowcases. Right now, I’m on the Purple 3 mattress. Of course, you don’t need to use a Purplemattress in order to enjoy Purple sheets. However, the folks at Purple do say that thesesheets were designed with the Purple mattresses in mind.They’re stretchy quality and as you can seethey are super stretchy. The stretchy quality is designed to complementthe stretchy and rubbery nature of the mattresses so that the sheets are flexing with the mattressin this unique to Purple way. The fitted sheet, as you can see here, iscapable of accommodating mattresses up to 16-inches deep. That’s pretty deep pockets. This particular mattress is about 12-inchesdeep. I just tucked the excess fabric tightly underthe mattress so I can get that snug fit. Now, for the pillowcases, this is the Purplepillow if you couldn’t tell. It’s 10 pounds. I just wanted you Purple loyalists out thereto get a look at what the Purple pillow looks like inside the Purple pillowcase. As you can see, there’s plenty of room tospare. It more than accommodates this pillow. Something I don’t love is that the openingis on the side. There’s a little bit of this pillow spillageout of here.It’s a pet peeve of mine, but we’ll get intothat later. Just so you can see what it looks like accommodatinga standard size pillow, a little less room to spare here, a little less excess fabrichanging out. My first impression is that they are supersmooth to the touch. I’m also getting the sense that they’re verybreathable, very light and airy, which is great for hot sleepers like myself who aretrying to stave off those night sweats at night.Of course, the only way to get a sense forthis bedding is to roll around in it. Let’s check it out. [background music) Sarah: OK, so first things first. These are the stretchiest sheets I’ve evertested. The first thing I’m noticing is that thismaterial is pulling with me. It’s got this quick, just stretchy responsewhen I pull on it. Right off the bat, it’s giving me these uniquevibes that I’m into. Secondly, the most important factor for mewhen I’m picking the bedding that’s right for me is how the fabric feels against mybare skin. I can tell you this particular fabric feelsso smooth to the touch. I can’t stop rubbing my hands all over thesheets. Now the fitted sheet is another thing I’mloving because there’s no gaping or no bunching of any kind. This stretchy quality is serving to help itadhere very tightly to the mattress. Like I said, you can pluck it, of course,and it’ll bounce right back, but there’s no unkempt- looking bunching, or gaping, or anythinglike that. That’s important to me.Speaking of the fitted sheet, another mostimportant factor for me when I’m picking the bedding that I like is how well the fittedsheet actually stays put on the mattress. I’m a bit of a restless combo sleeper, soI need to know that amidst all my tossing and turning, the fitted sheet is never goingto become untucked. I can tell you I’m pleased to report thatamidst all my tossing, and turning, and switching positions, the fitted sheet never even closeto became untucked.It does come equipped with a very thick elasticband that surrounds the perimeter of the fitted sheet. That’s doing a great job of keeping this fittedsheet on the mattress. Something that I’m not crazy about from anaesthetic standpoint are the pillowcases. This stretchy quality is making them lookalmost a little baggy on the pillow, particularly the Purple pillow. The Purple pillow is not a lofty pillow rightoff the bat. There’s a ton of excess fabric. I just don’t think it looks that great, tobe honest. Not to mention, I do prefer the envelope closuresthat some pillowcases offer wherein there’s a little flap of fabric that covers the pillowinside.You’re not getting this pillow spillage orthe tag sticking out. The pillow cases I’m not crazy about. However, I am a very hot sleeper. One thing I’m noticing for sure is that theseare super cooling. They’re so cozy, but also so light and breathable. As I billow this top sheet over me, I canliterally feel the air flowing through the fabric. It’s actively serving to cool me down, which,like I said, is super important to me because I am a year-round hot sleeper.I have to say I consider these to be special. They bring something unique to the sheet game. I think they’d be a pretty good addition toanyone’s bedroom collection. There’s a lot to like about the Purple sheets,but just to name a few of my favorites. Bamboo-based bedding does have a reputation,like I said, for being naturally breathable, moisture-wicking, and cooling. I did find that to be the case with theseparticular sheets. As I was rolling around in bed, I was definitelyenjoying some cooling comfort which, like I said, is particularly important to hot sleeperslike myself. Something that I thought was special and uniqueabout these sheets is the way they flex with the Purple mattress.Now the stretchiness of these sheets combineswith the stretchiness of the hyper-elastic polymer inside the Purple mattress. It offers this all-embracing sink into thematerial. It makes me feel just totally immersed inPurple. If you are a Purple fan, I have to say thatthe Purple sheets and the Purple mattress complement each other very well. Now when I’m on the hunt for bedding or myself,I do prioritize easy wash care. I’m pleased to report that these sheets areboth machine washable and dryable. Just wash on a cold cycle, tumble dry on lowheat, and you’re good to go. There are a few things about these sheetsthat some folks might consider to be drawbacks. Firstly, like I said, they’re super lightand airy. They’re doing a great job of keeping me cool. If you’re a sleeper who likes sheets thatare a little more warm and cozy, you might want to find something that’s a little bitheavier in weight and, like I said, a little bit more warming.Because these are, like I said, very light,very breathable, and very cooling. Another thing, and this is totally a matterof personal preference, is that while I found the sheets to complement the Purple mattressso seamlessly, I can’t say the same thing for the Purple pillow. Like I said, this pillowcase in my opinionis just way too big for the Purple pillow. As you can see, it’s also very stretchy. The stretchiness combined with the size, itjust doesn’t look great in my opinion. From an aesthetic standpoint, not ideal. Of course, it does not detract from how supersoft and smooth it feels against your skin, which I love. I’m just not loving the way the pillowcaseslook on the pillow. They don’t look that great, in my opinion,on the standard size pillow either. There’s just a lot of baggy excess room. If you don’t have a king size pillow, you’rejust going to be working with a lot of extra fabric.Which brings me to my last point. Oftentimes, bedding brands will offer sleeperstrial periods wherein you have a month or sometimes more to test the bedding, see ifit’s the right fit for you. If it’s not, just send it on back for a refund. However, not only are there no trial periodsfor the Purple sheets, but there’s no returns either. Before you buy Purple sheets, you have tobe pretty positive that these are the ones for you. Well, that wraps up this review.[background music] Sarah: For every last detail on these sheets,be sure to check out my full written review that you can find by Googling SleepopolisPurple Sheets.

Forget Thread Count: This Is How to Choose the Best Bed Sheets

Do we similar to this for a while? I am going to exfoliate with this one. Oooh. You can not even see me over the pillows Iam so small. Now i’m doing a visual scan. Even before you touch it, it looks low cost,like, the sides are uninspired. I feel like if I slept on this, i’d wake upfrom the sound of my dermis. I fairly like this one. I have no idea how many more faces have beenon it, and it is kinda creeping me out. I don’t know why i’m still preserving it, cradlingit like a small child.However it feels smooth like if I put on prettypajamas, I may just slide off the bed. I really like drowsing. It can be like my favourite factor. Slumbering is my passion. I might sleep on all of them. Ummmmm probably 600. I really think thread depend’s fake. 200? Seventy five? 10,000. From like 100 to, I do not know, possibly, 1000. I do not suppose i have ever purchased a pillowcasejust buy itself. I don’t know what kind of unwell character wouldgo looking only for pillowcases. I know that i purchase really high thread countsheets considering i am a princess. Pillows and cats is what i am surrounded byat night time. I don’t know how a lot matters rate in reallife..
