Oh!  Oh!! Oh!  When are they hitting the floor?  Are they more of that bamboo stuff?  Or plastic handles?  Okay, just a little teaser, just a little... please?  Yes, very exciting indeed.

That is certainly an interesting question.  I do not know what your main crafts are, but you could always take a big stack of graph paper and some colored pencils with you and plot out all your future projects, like knitting or embroidery graphs, or stencils or purse designs or whatever you're into.  If all else fails, you can always use the paper for origami.

Oh.  My.  [Insert diety here.]!  That is the greatest thing I have seen so far.  Oh, oh, if you post a pattern, I promise I will not run anyone over all weekend.  Not a one!
364  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Phone Books? on: April 15, 2005 11:06:43 AM
What about cutting out the middle and gluing all the pages behind it together and using it to hide little objects

Like where the "last will and testament" or gun is hidden in mystery movies?  Nice!
365  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Phone Books? on: April 14, 2005 07:10:36 PM
Omigosh we just found like 4 thick phonebooks that my mom wants to throw out. I'm begging her not to trying to convince her that I'll find something amazing to make from them, but my time is running short. My only idea so far is to make it the base of a table, but i'd have nowhere to put it. Any ideas anyone? Quick!

Cut out a 4" square from the middle of all the books, glue them atop each other at crazy angles and use it as a vase for dried flowers or to cover an uglier vase.  Yeah, because I'm sure it's very very easy to hack out a perfect square from the middle of a phone book.

I made a big-ass Jordy with two long handles out of wool felt (outside and lining).  At first, I, like you, was convinced the whole thing would shred and drop my books in a puddle but it has been amazingly sturdy.  It's about 16" long by 12" tall by 6" wide.  I did not use any interfacing but I did boxstitch the handles where they joined the body of the bag.

I've used it to carry about ten pounds worth of books and paper but it could hold more.  I think any bag-weakness would lie in the handles.  Just make sure they're sturdy and that your fabric isn't flimsy (upholstery-weight, home dec, etc.) and you should be alright.
367  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help - Want to make a tutorial for this knitting bag on: March 19, 2005 11:03:11 AM
I just bought Butterick pattern B4409 (Joann's having another pattern sale).  Views E and F have a suprisingly similar shape to this bag, although the Butterick bag is supposed to only be 14"L by 6" W.  The pattern gives you some handle options too.  I really dig that crochet/knitting bag....  Is that a grommet for pulling the yarn through on the side?

368  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Re: Sassy Magazine "Making It" on: March 18, 2005 04:02:12 PM
This Sassy thread has made me nostalgic for the Star Hits of yore, before they decided to just come right out and call themselves "Smash Hits" and blew chunks.

The project from Sassy I remember was the DIY very-of-the-moment bubble skirt. 

While wearing a long full skirt  (which had previously been the rage), fold the hem under so that it popped out of the top of the inside of the skirt and wear a wide elastic belt around the whole mess.  Voila!  The skirt bottom is now bubbly and the hem makes a "cute ruffle" on top peeking over the belt.

I distictly remember this one because my sister had a subscription and the day after she got her magazine in the mail, three girls at my school showed up wearing that.

No wait, maybe that was Seventeen...

If you're anywhere in the Los Angeles aea (but I think it's probably a nationwide sale), Joann's is having a sale on Vogue patterns ($4.49 each) from March 17-19, a sale on Butterick and McCall's patterns ($1.29 each) also from March 17-19 and a sale on Simplicity patterns ($1.99 ) from March 24-26.  The March 24-26 sale includes 50% off the notions wall!  Yeah!  Notions!!

Wow!   Shocked  I love, love, LOVE that fabric!!!  Is that the Madison bag from the Amy Butler pattern?  What did you use for the bottom to make it stiff enough?
