one of the things I have a hard time saying no to is cheeses. I eat mostly a Mediterranean based diet, but im wondering if theres any recipes out there to make vegan feta? I havent seen anything like it yet so im wondering if theres a way to do this with plain tofu, a low maintenance recipe? thanks!
does anyone know of any good tutorials for making bookmarks?
I'm hoping to make something really cool and pretty for someone's birthday (not like something crappy i would put together in grade 2) its for an actual gift, as I am low on budget but this person just got a whole load of books to go through so i figured it might be handy. thanks!
would it be possible for one of the mods to start a tutorial listing for the paper section? in the top section that's permanently there like in the other boards? thanks, if someone takes the time for it.
edit: i do realize there isnt alot of paper tutorials on crafster.
Some bras have beautiful designs on them. And for those of us girls that have gone through puberty must have one or two that don't fit us anymore. but what can you do with them as far as reconstructing/recycling other than donating? I know that you can make headbands out of the bra straps, or reuse the straps, but as far as the bra itself being the shape it is in does anyone have any ideas or reconstructed projects you know of?
so i havent found a thread on this yet (if its there someone please link it). I think in one of michael moore's books he mentions that they are in fact recyclable if you remove the dead ink part if anyone could add to that or confirm it please do.
so what can you do with them once they are dead and run out?
so far i came up with reusing them as yarn spools, but not everyone uses yarn though, its a start
if you feel like donating some knitting time and get some friends or a group together in your community you can practice your knitting skills/addictions by making scarves and hats and donating them to a local homeless shelter if you havent already dressed all your family and friends, as the weather is getting cold, for a good cause.
you could even ask people to donate yarn, hooks and needles (to use for the project of course, but try to avoid temp. loaned hooks and needles as they can get lost or broken) if you can knit the following anyone could do this, this idea is from a school club one of the teachers started. you can do it at your office, work, etc. you can organize it for people to do it on their own time, or have a length of time and deadline. or get together in a group and have some tea and cookies, its a great way to get together with people and network with other knitter and crochet folks.
ps. dont forget if you have any winter clothing you dont need at all you can donate them too.
Ive read in Ecoholic book by Adria vasil about using calendars for giftwrap paper. (speaking of, i should change mine as were in october) but they are too hard and small and i have toooo many. what do you guys suggest or have you heard of any other projects? i have some beautiful calendars from russia of russian churches and tourist sights. i would be really excited for any ideas thanks!
