Thanks for the info!  I'm currently researching Fricke wheels.  I think with the Delta orifice, sliding hooks, option for a Wollee Winder and lots of ratios it might be a good choice when I'm ready to take the plunge.

Thanks! Yay -- another Kreate-A-Lope fan!  I just love that you don't need scissors with it!  I really like the slightly rough edge on these recycled envelopes.

I think my next project will be a set made out of old Paris maps for a friend I met on a study-abroad trip to France.

Sounds like a good method! 

Another question, did you wrap your roving up in plastic wrap to keep the colors distinct, or did you just lay the roving in an ovensafe dish and sprinkle your dyes on?

Cool!  Very cute hats.

Looks great!  Is there a big difference between dyeing stuff in the oven and doing it in a steamer rack on the stovetop?
756  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Kreate-A-Lope! Anthropologie Catalog Becomes Envelopes on: February 24, 2010 12:59:52 PM
I was totally inspired by this post:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334398.0

My problem was I needed a super simple way to make envelopes.  I wasn't going to do a bunch of tracing and cutting.  I found the coolest tool ever!  It's called the Kreate-A-Lope -- it's an envelope template you can use, and you don't even have to use scissors, just rip along the template.  Here's a video of the product in action:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKO2jkSxaI4  (And no, I'm not affiliated with the manufacturer -- I just really liked this thing.)

I've been on an envelope making spree.  I made a bunch from an Anthropologie catalog.  They're A2 sized envelopes.  To round out the gift, I cut some 8.5 x 11 chipboard into fourths to make some little notecards to insert in the envelopes, and some blank white address labels in case she wants to mail them.  I also put lick and stick glue on the flaps, so she can lick the envelopes like regular envelopes.

Now, on to the pics:

Here are a few of my favorites:


This is the whole bundled tied with a ribbon next to the Kreate-A-Lope template:


Here's the whole shebang all laid out.  I showed the backs of some of them in the photo, because I like how the inside of the envelopes contrasted with the exterior:


My friend really liked her gift!

758  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Hooked flyer or sliding clips -- which do you like and why? on: February 23, 2010 04:10:41 PM
Doing preliminary looking into getting a wheel at some point down the road.  I'm wondering if any of you have strong preferences regarding hooked flyers or flyers with sliding clips.  I'm especially curious to hear from folks who have used both.  I like bulky and novelty yarns.  Are hooked flyers better for that in general?

Thanks!
