1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Ideas on Boy Hair Accessories? on: February 03, 2009 05:57:33 AM
I don't know if this goes here, but maybe you could help?

My little man has shoulder length hair and sometimes it hangs in his eyes.  I was wondering if there are any ideas out there for boyish hair accessories (besides basic hair clips).

Any thoughts/ideas would be appreciated!

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / What type of fabric would work to make these pan protectors? on: February 02, 2009 02:22:00 PM
I saw some pan protectors in the Pampered Chef catalog and thought that since I have a lot of scraps I could probably make my own.  Theirs are made from a poylester foam (here's the link):
http://www.amazon.com/Pampered-Chef-Cookware-Protectors-2888/dp/B0016D144Q

I was thinking of either using terry cloth or flannel on the bottom with a cotton top.  Do you think this would work?  The purpose I'm trying to achieve is to keep my pans from getting scratched when stored.

Thanks for any help!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Kidlets bring organization to our coat closet! on: January 18, 2009 08:15:58 AM
I found this tutorial for a Kidlet: http://jchandmade.typepad.com/KidletPDF.pdf
and thought it would make a great way to organize all our winter gear for our kids.  I made them each a kidlet in a different fabric and hung them on the wall using cabinet knobs instead of hooks so that it would reduce the likelihood of catching items on there.

I used canvas for the outside instead of a cotton fabric with interfacing.  I don't like how they hang open so much on the wall but they are not very big so it's not a problem (just aesthetics).  The pictures of them sitting on the floor are a little wonky because they were already filled.

It has helped us out because we have this small closet for the 6 of us and usually all their hats, scarves, gloves, etc.) would get thrown on the floor.

This is how it turned out:

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Decorate my House 2 Swap? on: December 31, 2008 06:17:01 AM
Would anyone be willing to organize this swap??


Hi All!

With the new year, I have a new resolution to redo my house and make it a haven instead of the current chaotic place that it is.  So I thought, why not do a Decorate My House swap?   I looked and saw there was one run last year about this same time.  Here's the thread from it: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227689.0

I'm thinking of having the swap be one large and one medium OR one large and two small.  What do you think?
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Should I decorate my futon cover? on: December 20, 2008 08:33:04 AM
I am making a new futon cover and will be using chocolate brown fabric.  The futon is our only couch and you see it when coming in the front door.  I love two toned images and have just received a cool pillow for my couch from a swap:


So, I was thinking of appliqueing a tree branch (in cream) on my futon cover, extending from the left hand side to about a third or halfway across.  Do you think this would too much for the couch?  Should I just use pillows to accent it? Any thoughts a re appreciated!
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Making a fabric curtain for my bookshelf on: December 20, 2008 08:24:43 AM
I am going to make a fabric curtain for my bookshelf (because I cannot stand clutter!).   

Any ideas on how to attach it?  The bookshelf has 3 inches of a wood border framed around the shelves.  It also has a 2 inch lip over the top.  (does that make sense?)

I want the curtain to be flush against it but to be removable in the future if I want to.

Thanks for the help!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift ideas for military women? on: November 24, 2008 08:29:48 AM
I have group of girl friends who are in the military.  I am wanting to make them some special Christmas presents but can't think of any ideas.  I would like to to have a subtle military theme.   Any ideas?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / No-knit scarf pattern? on: November 11, 2008 09:31:23 AM
I was wondering if their is a no knit scarf pattern that is different from the Rapunzel scarf and the Martha Stewart scarf.  I have some cool yarn that I was using to knot into a scarf (just using 4 knots) but my friend didn't like it at all, so I've been looking for a different pattern.
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / I'm looking for hand puppet tutorials like this.... on: October 19, 2008 04:24:36 PM

and this (you have to click the name under the drawing to see the actual pics):
http://www.magiccabin.com/magiccabin/product.do?section_id=0&sc=1004&bc=1004&pgc=613&cmvalue=MCD|CROSSSELL|PRODUCT|707

I guess the one main problem I have is with doing the detailing and the clothing.  I can't figure that out.  Any help is appreciated!
