171  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: shrinking ratios anyone? on: June 30, 2008 03:49:55 PM
what is the fiber made of?  Is it 100% cotton?
172  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: tumble dryer fluff/lint? on: June 30, 2008 03:49:16 PM
You know, I've often wondered what that stuff could be used in.  Well, my hope is you do go with the experiment.  I want to see the results.  Of course, let me warn you that many fabrics we wear are processed in formaldehyde.  The stuff that dryer sheets are soaked in is also in many ways very harmful to us.  Don't use them if you can help it.  But, back to the fluff.  Please let me in on your ideas!  I have wondered at using it in paper-making.

Think all-purpose glue.  Your items to be glued need to accept the type, and the felt does as well.  Actually a densely felted object is important whether you glue items on it or not.  The more you work with it, the denser it will become.  Then, the glue used should be something that will work on both mediums.  I think that you might get away with hot glue. 
174  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I can't find a cake tutorial, can anyone help? on: June 30, 2008 03:44:13 PM
Don't limit yourself to felting.  Make your lovely non-edible non-perishable goodies out of whatever you have on hand.  Why not begin with making a basic shape.  For example, take a piece of stiff foam, perhaps taken from a shipping crate.  Carve it to the shape you want, and then cover it.  Use felt material you purchased, or bathtowels or whatever.  Kids just need the suggestion to get their creative little brains working.  You are able to do this without buying lessons!  SO DO IT SISTER!

One of my first endeavors at felting was totally ruined after I attained the pinnacle of success.  I stupidly ran it through a cycle in the washer.  DOH! Cry  Ah well, live and learn and then learn and learn and screw up and learn again.
176  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Mosaic- Glass Tiled Box on: June 30, 2008 03:35:08 PM
Very nicely grouted.  Did you cut the tiles yourself?  I noticed some guy on "Look What I Made" who was a glass artist, and he had a bench with some screen-like stuff stapled on top.  I think it is where he snipped and cut glass.  Theory is the screen holes (large) caught shards and kept them from skidding onto floors, small children and pets I guess.  Any thoughts?
177  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: More etched glass beer mugs on: June 30, 2008 03:30:00 PM
Hey I love these.  I have done some etching with the chemical stuff before, but my hubby just bought a sandblasting box.  Hmmm I says to myself, . . .
Does anyone know if you can etch glass with it or is this monstrosity just for tools and stuff?
178  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Good Eats/Alton Brown swap? *edited with some more specifics* on: June 30, 2008 01:56:25 PM
well here is my next post.  Apparently my daughter, aka soap mogul, aka super mom, aka craft diva, etc. etc., emailed shots of my littlest granddaughter in one of my latest creations.  I'll be posting that soon.  I am working on a "spectator hat" as a side job.  I have always liked to work on more than one project at a time so that when I'm burning up about having to remove an errant stitch or mad at myself for having glued something upside down, or I'm out of an essential supply, I simply switch and regroup my craftiness. 

Perhaps other crafters would enjoy seeing some of my various craft efforts.  I only hope I can assist in encouraging this wonderful effort. Grin

I've enjoyed this website from voyeur perspective up till now.  Alton Brown swapping got me hopping.  Can a "newbie" participate?  I am too old to marry him but I'd sure take a long motorcycle ride through the countryside with him.  Well, maybe a sidecar would suit me better.  Love the KITCHENAID mixer he has with flames!  I'm game for swapping and would LOVE to make this my first effort to belong to this super group.
