1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Flat stretch beaded bracelet on: June 05, 2004 09:02:17 PM
That's it!  You're a genius!  Thank you so much for figuring that out from my lame description.  Now that I have you here, what is the difference between ladder stitch and brick stitch?  I've seen both names come up in my searches, and they look pretty much the same as far as I can see.  Thanks again!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Flat stretch beaded bracelet on: June 04, 2004 09:43:59 PM
A friend of mine has a flat stretch beaded bracelet--I guess you would call it a band bracelet. It has no clasp and just slips on and is snug on the wrist.

It's made of glass beads in vertical rows running around the wrist. When you stretch the beads apart you can see the elastic cord running in and out of each bead in a crisscross pattern. The beads are small and the bracelet is about an inch wide made up of maybe 5 rows of beads. It's not just seed beads, there are some slightly larger ones in the center row.

Any ideas what this type of bracelet is called so I can do a search for directions?

I'm making all the aunts, sisters moms and grandmas fabric tote bags in great spring prints with contrast linings.

My kids are decoupaging tiny wooden boxes from Michaels craft store with magazine pix like flowers and lips.

That's a good idea, and cheaper than the glue dots.

You can get glue dots (that's what they're called) at Walmart in the basket/floral department.  They come in a small, flat box and the company that makes them is Basket Accents.  They're the same stuff that sticks credit cards to paper when you get them in the mail.  

I don't know if they're really economical--they probably cost more than the magnets themselves--but you wouldn't need a whole dot for each magnet--maybe cut one in half?

Tell me more about the little ziploc bags you found at Walmart if you can.  I'm going to be selling the magnets and haven't found a way to package them where the magnets don't flip around and stick to each other.

I don't have any altoid tins, and I don't want to pay a lot for packaging but I want them to look nice.  Thanks!
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:Old holiday cards on: March 03, 2004 06:27:27 AM
This isn't a craft, but you can send the cards (or just the fronts) to St. Jude's Card Recycling, 100 St. Jude Street, Post Office Box 60100, Boulder City NV 89006.

The kids in their programs refurbish the cards by adding new backs and sell them to help support the programs.  

I save my cards in a manilla envelope that I keep in with my Christmas stuff and when the envelope is full I send it in.

No, actually, that makes perfect sense!  I've already cut it out, and I'm going to sew it up later.  The topstitching is a good idea, I think.  It makes the seam look more intentional.  Thanks!

Depending on the fiber content of the ribbon, if you hold the cut end near a candle--not in the flame--but near the flame, it will melt the end perfectly.  It works great with flat ribbon that has nylon in it.  It might work for you.

It's a simple, slightly flared tote bag, on the small side with a square bottom, lining, and inside pocket.

The pattern came in the Sew Fast, Sew Easy book which is a good intro to sewing, and has 3 tissue patterns included in the book--the tote, a pillow, and a skirt.

The pattern pieces are different from the tutorial here in that they don't cut out the corners of the bag.  Instead you pinch them and sew them into triangles which get hidden under the lining.

Also, the bag isn't completely straight on the sides, it flares out toward the top.  

I'd post a photo if I had a digital camera, but it's a good pattern, and it comes out great.
