31  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Just a vent. on: June 03, 2008 11:21:05 AM
I was at school yesterday and some of the people who are in our Work Study program tore the pages out of a bunch of old books from the library. So I tried to get the teacher to let me take the empty covers that weren't torn in two pieces. They didn't let me have them-they threw them out. I asked why and I got the excuse that they 'had to be destroyed'. They recycled the pages, though. I was really mad because I could have made sketchbooks with them. I also asked which teacher said the covers had to be destroyed, and I did not get an answer. I don't get why they can't just donate the books to a school who needs them. I wonder if there is any way I can get the school to give me stuff like that? Who else has this problem?
32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / This is a bit overdone, but.. on: May 17, 2008 11:09:25 AM
This is just the basic old book to new journal recon but it was my very first old book to new journal recon, and I'm pretty proud of it. The cat fabric was left over from pajama pants I made in Home Ec class and the paper is just regular plain old printer paper. I sewed the pages together with a needle and thread. I've long since gotten a bone scorer, a folder, and an awl. Wink Haha. Sorry the picture is blurry too. Tongue

33  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Awesome Doll! on: May 17, 2008 10:49:02 AM
I made this doll last summer but didn't get around to making her clothes and putting her hair on until earlier this year. Isn't she awesome?  Smiley

34  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Delicious Summertime Beverage. on: May 01, 2008 04:32:58 PM
I just made a yummy summertime beverage. It's easy-all you do is take some sherbet, scoop it into a glass, and pour 7-UP over it. Then you enjoy it. <3

I'll post a picture in a couple minutes of it so the rest of you can drool over it. Wink
35  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fuze bottle to cute vase! on: April 27, 2008 06:18:31 PM
I made this vase from an empty Fuze bottle I asked my friend to save for me. All I did was take some of those adhesive labels, cut flowers out, stick them on the bottle, then spray-paint over them. When it was dry I peeled the flowers off. And voila! A cute vase.  Smiley

36  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blue purse I made last summer. <3 on: April 06, 2008 08:28:41 PM
This is a purse I made last summer. It took just two days to make. Smiley I'm pretty proud of it because I put a pocket in it and that was my very first time making a pocket.  Cheesy

37  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Hey, everyone.. (misc. photography and snowman) on: March 29, 2008 11:24:59 PM
I finally got my Photobucket working. I'm going to put up pictures of the things I've made tomorrow sometime, but for now I just have a picture I took and a couple pictures my sister and mom took. If y'all want to see it, it's here. I'm totally proud of myself, considering the fact I'm a total goof when it comes to that stuff.  Embarrassed  Haha.


38  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / This is for all you tie-dye lovers... LOL. on: March 18, 2008 05:49:34 PM
Hey, everyone, I tie-dyed a tee shirt last night with this technique. I hope it's okay to share it with you all. Tongue This only works with big Sharpies-I tried it with those little ones and it didn't work out too well. And if you're like me and you're one of those instant gratification craftsters, this might drive you nuts because it takes a little while. Haha. I would do this with my socks but-I'm out of rubbing alcohol.

39  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Girl Scout cookie boxes. on: February 24, 2008 07:32:01 PM
So...We have a bunch of Girl Scout cookie boxes that we have no idea what to do with. We have both kinds-the heavier cardboard ones and the lighter paperboard ones. My mom said I should ask you all what we could make with them. Do you all have any ideas? Smiley Thanks in advance! Cheesy
40  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Adorable Water Bottle Cozy! (Tutorial included!) on: February 10, 2008 04:03:13 PM
So I made this really cute water bottle holder this weekend. And I just wrote out a tutorial for it. I will have a picture of the finished product when I get the camera to work again. Wink So, fellow Craftsters, please enjoy. Tongue

Water Bottle Cozy Tutorial

What You Need:

* Paper
* Pencil
* Ruler
* Water Bottle
* Yarn
* Fabric
* Pins
* Scissors
* Safety Pin

What You Do:

1. Take a piece of paper and a pencil and trace around the bottom of your water bottle. Make sure the circle is bigger than the bottom of your water bottle. Pin it on the fabric and cut it out.

2. Measure how tall your bottle is from the bottom to the lid. Mark this on the paper and make a pattern. Cut the fabric accordingly.

3. Pin the edges of your fabric together and sew them. Then put the circle you cut out on the bottom of your fabric tube and pin it on. Gather the fabric a little as you sew.

4. Turn the fabric inside out so the seams are on the inside. Try it on your bottle and see how it looks.

5. Fold down the top edges of your holder and pin them. Sew.

6. Cut some yarn and tie one end of it. Tack the end down to any hard surface and braid it. After you finish that, take a safety pin and attach it to one end of the braid. Pull it through and tie it in a bow. Voila!

7. Show off your hot new water bottle holder!
