FYI gelatin is not vegetarian, so heads up if you care about such things.

Now I'm worried about licking envelopes.  How about using regular glue thinned with water?  It dries in a thin layer and can be reconstituted with a lick or a damp-rag swipe.

The ladies who run Seaplane are pretty successful.  They run a store on SE Belmont in Portland, and just opened a new one on NW 23rd.  Here's their website, I'm sure there's a way to contact them via it.

I think this stuffed-animal slug would make an awesome necklace.  It's so freaking cute and detailed!

I saw some amazing plastic critter necklaces recently in Reykjavik.  Also, elsewhere on craftster there's a thread about mounting glow-in-the-dark plastic bugs in a shadowbox for display.

Very cool!

Thanks for the recommendation!  I've been wanting to try a skirt with fancy seams like that.

I went to the ReBuilding store (you might not have one of those, but they sell used construction and building parts) and bought a 4" diameter dowel and an old school bulletin board.  Oh yeah, and an old kitchen cabinet with 3 shelves and a door.  I cut the dowel into four equal pieces (the same height as the cabinet) for the table legs, and refinished the cabinet.  I screwed the bulletin board on top of the legs only, but the cabinet helps for stability.  It cost about $15 total, and the table has metal edging and a cork top-- awesome for pinning.

Friends of mine used a whole bunch of (cleaned) milk crates as the platform for their bed.  It was just a futon mattress on top of crates, which can be free/recycled.  You can turn the outter ones so that you can use them as storage, and store stuff you won't need often in the inner ones.

rad!  I can't wait to try this, too.  I wonder what variations on peg springs are out there to try.  I think it would be cool to put some larger gauge beads (pony beads?) on the springs, too.  Wooden pegs might be nicer cos it seems like you could do more with the leftover peg part.  What about gluing the peg/legs to a hair clip/barette and painting them?

8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Skully Sweater..HELP! on: May 18, 2004 08:09:59 AM
I struggled with the language of that part, too.  Honestly, I don't think it matters in which direction you bind off, even though it goes in different directions, because that part will essentially be covered up when you pick up stitches to knit the collar.  So go with whatever's easiest for you, and post pics of your finished product!

Thank god someone else has ideas on this.  I try to add extra darts to pants every once in a while, but it's so much work to take off and redo a waistband that I almost never get around to it.  I'm trying the elastic on my next pair.  Thanks creatingme.  Surely there are more of us out there with curves!

Oh my god you're awesome.  As is the skirt.  I love the style of ruffle you created.  I think it would look good if you decide to change the look later just by putting that red fringe over it.  The current ruffle would peek out from underneath.
