21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Scrapy Birthday Party Banner (bunting) link to tute on: June 04, 2010 08:34:17 AM


All but three of the triangles are made using pieces out of my scrap bag. I could have gone further and pieced together the scraps but I was doing this a bit simpler. Each triangle is about 6"x8" and is reversable; boys theme on one side, girls on the other.

boys



girls



I wrote out the whole *very easy* process here http://solidityofrainbows.blogspot.com/2010/06/reversable-scrap-party-bunting-or.html

Thanks everyone! Since I didn't actually write down the steps I'm trying to work on that with a different one. I'm thinking of maybe trying to make it a pattern that I could sell but it'll probably just end up being a tutorial on my blog.

I found the molds at Target in the $2.50 section at valentines. I guess they were for candy or ice or something? Just check to make sure they are heat resistant at least up to 300 degrees (you bake them on 250 or below). I would stick with simple shapes, nothing with too much detail as they might chip or break when you released them. Make sure they're VERY cool when you take them out too or they'll warp.

yeah they're pretty easy, three pieces of fabric that are rectangles to cut. The hardest part is just sewing straight lines for all the crayon holder places but if you have an erasable fabric marker or the like it's not hard.

Whatever was at the bottom of the crayon box, mostly crayola though, some were restaraunt crayons and stuff. The different colors tend to melt at different rates, same with the brands.

I kinda just winged this yesterday and finished it up today. I hang laundry and garden and do lots of crafty stuff all day long and wanted a good heavy duty something with pockets.



I used scraps for the front pockets, trim, ties and waistband. The only hard part was blind sewing the edges. I messed up a lot.



There are three pockets, fully lined in the blue/gray dots.



God. I look pregnant. *sigh* This is what happens after five kids and no sit ups.



Sucking it in looks much better.

How I did the marbleing was just to divide the colors up into the right spectrum groups (pinks/reds, orange/yellow, greens, blues, etc.) broke the crayons up fairly small and when they were all melted very carefully took a toothpick and swirled gently.

30  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / blog giveaway advertise on etsy store? on: June 02, 2010 06:27:28 AM
I'm hosting a give away that kinda is in relation to my etsy store but I'm wondering if it's a good idea to post the contest in my top heading on my store or if it's not related enough. There are three prizes and the third is something from my shop (of my choosing under a certain price).

Would it distract from would-be sales too much? I'm a new store, I have 6 sales so I'm not sure how it would go over.
