811  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby blocks from flannel on: August 20, 2007 07:36:54 AM
I think I'm going to try making some of these cute name blocks that I see you all making.  I'm going to use flannel because I found some that matches the baby's room (for a friend's baby).  Anyway, I was thinking of just cutting the pieces with pinking shears (is that what they're called?  They cut a zigzag).  Then I'd leave the zig zag edges out if that makes sense.  My question is, will they fray?  I don't sew a lot so I've not used flannel enough to know.  I just thought it would be a nice sensory thing for the baby to have those zig zags.  But I could just as easily add the ribbons if the flannel would fray too easily.  Thanks for any input!

Thanks.  I don't think I could just make a pic on my own that looks that great!  I think I could probably figure out how to do everything but the binding but you've already explained that.  Not sure why I asked for a tut really.  Must've been one of those days.  Sorry.  Undecided
813  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Does anyone make clay beads? (not polymer) on: August 20, 2007 06:37:45 AM
Does anyone here make clay beads?  I'm not sure what the proper name for the clay is.  I've heard it called firing clay but I don't know if I really know what firing clay is.  I just bought a kiln but I know nothing about kilns, clay, etc.  Before I post my lenghty list of questions, do any of you know how to make beads from "firing clay"?  Or can you tell me another name for firing clay so I can google it?  Thanks! Any advice is appreciated.
814  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello! on: August 20, 2007 05:48:04 AM
Hello!  Guess I should've posted here first!  I didn't even realize there was an introduction board.  I was too busy reading all of the other wonderful boards.  Lots of awesome ideas here!  Well anyway, on to my intro.  My name is Rachel and I am 28 years old.  Happily married to Jeff.  We have two sons, Ashton who is 3 and Logan who will be one on the 26th of this month.  I taught special education in an elementary school for the last 5 years.  I am taking this year off to stay home with my boys.  I've been trying to do some crafting to make ends meet while I'm not working.  So far I've only sold some beaded jewelry but I've done pretty well with it.  I'd like to start making personalized baby things.  Just not sure what or how yet.  I have an absolute weakness for purses and bags so I'm loving that board!  I look forward to continuing to read everyone's awesome ideas and to see your projects.  There are a lot of very talented people here!

816  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: changing babies... on: August 16, 2007 06:52:49 AM
the changing pad part was just a vinyl covered foam piece.
  This is what I had with my first baby.  With my second I had the curved/concave kind.  I preferred the flat kind.  I don't think you really need padded bumpers for the sides but you do need some kind of railing or something.  Also, most changing tables have a belt to strap the baby on.  I never used it unless I needed to walk away for a moment but even then, I usually just took the baby with me.  Good luck in your TTC journey!

How awesome!  You are very talented!  Did you create the pictures yourself or did you use some type of template?  I'd love to make one of these but I'm not sure I have the talent to create such beautiful pictures!
ETA:  Is there a tutorial for this somewhere?  I think I have the basic idea but a tutorial would be helpful too.

You might also try a pill bottle with a child proof cap.  That way if the child did get the "rattle" out of the toy, they still couldn't get the beans or whatever you use, out of the bottle.

Call it a coed baby shower.  Maybe have a pic of a grill or a picnic setting with a stork flying overhead.
