1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / How to Package Holiday Baking? on: December 16, 2009 08:07:25 PM
I hope this is in the right place.

For the holiday season I have decided to do a ton of baking for everyone. Usually around this time I would only bake for a couple of people and so I generally simply put the treats in some of my tins, which are eventually returned to me. However, this year, I have decided to make a lot more and to give them as gifts.

I am not entirely sure what to use to package my goods. To give an example of what I plan to give everyone:
~ 2-3 muffins
~ 6-10 cookies (small "sandwich" cookies like Oreos but thicker, naturally)
~ 2-3 chocolate truffles
I intend to make about a dozen of these packages.

I have been looking around for boxes at the local dollar stores but I can't seem to find any of sufficient size. I have a small budget but I want the packaging to be either recyclable (paper or cardboard) or reusable. Can anyone offer any tips from previous experiences or just good logic for this?

Thank you all very much in advance!

(P.S. I am aware that they make specialized "pastry boxes" [I used to work in a bakery] but the only ones I have found for general purchase have been Martha Stewart and they're super pricy!)
2  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Vogue 8361 anyone? on: March 10, 2009 06:07:14 PM
Has anyone used this pattern? I'd love to see the sorts of results people got.

I'm also wondering if it would be possible to make it without cutting the pieces on the bias. The fabric I have (I didn't buy it exclusively for use with this pattern) is extremely flowy on its own and I was wondering how critical it would be to have a bias cut as opposed to just the grainline hanging straight down.

Here's a photo for anyone interested:

I'm interested in making view A (the gold/yellow one) if that helps any.
