2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re:how did you find craftster? on: April 02, 2004 03:30:17 PM
I found craftster through BoingBoing last November. I joined a month later, lurked a little longer, then figured I could add to the conversation here and there.

The Google Calculator has been fairly helpful converting some measurements for me: "The calculator can solve math problems involving basic arithmetic, more complicated math, units of measure and conversions, and physical constants."

I work in the design/advertising world - this is a big deal for us - using images properly. Didn't mean to be "long-winded" but want to make sure that everyone is aware.

*YOU* may know this but there are a lot of young members on this forum that are not aware of the legalities of intellectual property.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re:Artist canvas questions.... on: April 02, 2004 12:10:37 PM
As a former fine arts major, here's my $.02: I would advise against using artist's canvas as fabric. It generally costs a lot more than fabric and it doesn't wash well. Also, it's a little stiff, particularly if it's primed. You can use fabric paints on many other fabrics if you are wanting to paint it.

The only thing I would suggest using canvas for would be for projects that use smaller amounts of canvas, like for a directors chair or for a roller shade. Consider where you need a small amount of canvas (to save money) and where a stiffer, more heavy-weight fabric is better that you might want to paint.

They could be little notebooks. Or my aunt once made me a cover for my yellow sticky notes to keep in my purse (so they wouldn't end up with purse gunk on them).

They might work well as a cigarette case.

Or a small little handbag / mobile phone cozy.

No, I hate to burst your bubble, but these are not free images. If you intend on selling your projects, please go to a reputable source for clip art and royalty-free stock photography. Many of the images that you will find through Google's search are indeed copyrighted or otherwise owned.

Google just finds images out there on the net. They are indexed by file name and by the alt tag info.

Just be careful what you pull, especially if you are going to use it for something for sale - you could get slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit or at the very least a "cease and desist."

There is a lot of good info in this craftster thread regarding images and copyright: Copyright Info / Using Other Peoples' Images / Etc.

Firefly - good for you!

I think you did a beautiful job (and certainly inspired me) and don't think that anyone is questioning your parenting skills. C'mon everyone - if she smart enough to make this crafty goodness, she HAS to be smart enough to think of her kid's safety.

As a parent, I've made some saftey blunders to be sure. I quit cutting my son's hair after a: "Don't move or I'll cut your ear. Don't move or I'll cut your ear!! Don't move or... Oh my gawd! I cut his ear!!!" Boy did I feel like a bad mommy.

cherriesrockmysox - that's exactly what I was talking about! Thank you!

Seems to me that either tacky glue or hot glue would do the trick just fine. If you wanted to make sure the felt stays in place you could thread it through the top of each circle and knot it.
 
The colors in the one at the spa were all close to each other on the color wheel - like pale green, darker green, blue-green, and blue. I personally really like the way chocolate brown, pink, and white look together or maybe I'm just hungry and thinking of ice cream....

At a spa I went to not long ago, they had some great mobiles hanging from the ceiling that were made from felt circles attached to fishing line. Just simple circles. I think they only used about 3 or 4 different colors if I remember correctly (I was pretty relaxed at the time!) and it just looked so cool. Squares would look cool too. The felt would be soft to walk thru if this was a door curtain. And it would be cheap to make.

A sheer, fabric shower curtain might be cool too. You could use a small tension curtain rod across the top of the door frame and ribbon for the curtain hooks. You could make a pretty, coordinating tie back when you wanted it accessible.
