1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / how to reinforce slipper sole on: February 10, 2012 07:06:41 PM
I have these bootie style slippers that are down filled but there's nothing on the bottom but two thin pieces of fabric.  What a crazy design!  You totally feel the cold through the floor AND they're not very soft to walk around in either.  I was thinking about cutting some foam inserts to put inside, but when I tried standing on some of my craft foam, it seemed pretty hard.  Anyone have any ideas?

Very cute.  I've been wanting to check that book out.  What did you think of it?  Was it easy to follow?

Fabulous and fun!  I'm new to needle felting and haven't tried free form yet.  How long did it take you to make all those Earths?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Looking for suggestions on how to fix pajama waistbands on: May 27, 2011 07:18:04 AM
I have three girls, so our clothes get handed down a few times.  The problem with cotton knit pajamas is that quite often the waistband starts to develop tiny holes in the fabric along the top edge of the elastic casing.  Otherwise they're fine.  Anyone have a quick fix idea?  I thought about folding some ribbon in half over the top edge, but because of the elastic waist, it needs to have some give.

This is really cute!  I've been toying with the idea of trying needle felting for some time, and I think I'm ready to take the leap.  I'll confess that I'm a fleece-aholic, so this project is right up my alley.  I too would have never thought of doing this on fleece.  Plus, I make items for an animal rescue group to sell for fundraising, and it takes me quite a while to crochet a whole scarf.  Embellishing a fleece scarf would probably be much faster.  How long do you think it took you to finish this?  I was thinking of needle felting some Christmas ornaments using cookie cutters for a pattern, but since I've never done it before, I wasn't sure how much time I would need to finish them.

Very cute!  These must be pretty small if you're using ankle socks.  I can't get an idea of scale from the picture.

If rocks are too heavy, you can make your own from things you have at home. For a school project I once wadded up tissues and paper towel in glue, smushed them into rock shapes to stick to the wall of the little diorama of a proposed museum exhibit, and painted them when dry. It's a lot lighter, and you can make any shapes you want. Add a bit of mica powder if you want some shimmery rocks like the kind we find around here for making campfire rings.

...and of course you need to burn some of the sticks to make it look like the fire's gotten to them!

Thanks for the great suggestions icekibby.  I was thinking the fire ring might get a little heavy.

Fledgling - thanks for the tip.  I saw those at Walmart this week, but I think we want to go for a more "natural" look.

Kunoni - thanks for the suggestion.  I saw sets made out of felt like that when I was looking for ideas.  I think we're going to try to go more natural and use actual sticks for the fire and real rocks for around the edge.  I'll have to see how that works out.  I don't want it to get too heavy.
