1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ipod/Headphones Holder on: April 20, 2006 11:28:16 AM
I wanted something to keep my ipod (her name is delilah) safe and also keep my headphones from getting lost in the depths of my purse so i came up with this:

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New Springy Purse on: April 20, 2006 11:19:04 AM
I passed this fabric 4 times before i finally bought it.  I made little pockets for a mirror, my lip glosses and my cell phone. It was the first time I ever put a magnetic closure in and I'll remember to be more careful with placement in the future.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / polymer clay incense holder? on: April 11, 2006 10:49:50 AM
i made an incense holder out of polymer clay last night.  it's made for the little cones of incense, not the sticks.  it's shaped like small bowl with fluted edges and will probably only hold one cone at a time.  i flattened a little ball of clay and glued the bowl to that. 

my question is: can incense be burned on it?  does anyone know if it would release nasty chemicals or not?  maybe catch on fire?  i do have a sealer specifically made for the brand of clay i used, would this be good enough?  incense cones dont have any flames or anything so i was thinking it would be okay.

anyone have any wisdom to impart?
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / measure twice.... on: January 26, 2005 05:38:54 AM
ugh! i'm a lame newbie sewer and i was making a skirt last night out of a fabric that i got from the salvation army and i measured the waistband so it would perfectly match one of my favorite skirts.  well i forgot to measure my hips and it didn't even occur to me that i would need to do that!  luckily i had cut extra fabric for the seam allowance and after i ripped it and sewed it closer to the edge it just fits.  i think i might have to take it apart and put panels in or something.  what i should have done (and isn't everyone a genius in hindsight) is pinned it first, tried it on, THEN cut it!!!!!!!  grrrr!!!!  i still have plenty of leftover fabric so it's not ruined... YET!
