What a delight! Love the use of miniatures--it's like you could crawl in and get cozy.   Kiss

I'm sure you figured this out long ago (say, 2008?  Embarrassed); but what I did to help determine how much an object would shrink was:

I drew a 5-inch "ruler" onto a sheet (printing it would have been better  Cheesy) and shrunk it. That showed me what size I could expect a 3-inch high object to be after shrinking  Wink

*remembering those who gave everything for us all*
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: "Manly" tentacle heating pad/ice pack/bed warmer (with small text tutorial!) on: December 14, 2010 03:15:34 PM
GREAT project!!! I really appreciate it b/c I'm always looking at those rice ones in the stores, but scoff at the price for what's, well, basically a bag of rice! [@] *scoff scoff*

I know my mom would LOVE to have something like this (she is *always* cold!), but she'd *never* spend $$$ on herself; and she hates it when us (poor) kids spend $$$ on her. [~]  Now she can have one and won't have to give me a hard time about spending $$$ on her (and I won't have to! [_~])

I also *love* the "leftover fabric" idea! I always have something around that I *had* to buy b/c it was *so* cute... but then can never think of what to do with it [x] I'm def set with "leftovers!"

Two questions and two thoughts:

Q1 (probably a stupid one [?]) -- When I first read tutorial I thought it said "used lentils"--we're talking about them straight out of the bag, right?
Q2 -- I have some fleece stuff. Soft and warm on it is. But--as I'm fabric ignorant--isn't that made of something nylon/poly/plastic-y that might melt? (k--NOW I'm pretty sure that's the stupid question [_,])

(not sure you want any "thoughts" from me at this point, [x] but)

T1 -- While reading through the tutorial, I had been thinking about mix-n-matching different size beans too. But then I thought that they might likely shift all around (and even shaking might not redistribute them [o]) Do you think it would work/help if little "sections" were sewn across the width; maybe every 5 or 6 inches?
T2 -- I'm going to make my mom one for work and one for home; then she won't have to carry it back and forth!

Thanks again *so much* for the great project and tutorial! [v]

What a creative idea--thanks for sharing it!

I like that they can be fun, serious (professional!), flirty, personalized, each of them unique, and all on a budget!

I like your tutorial very much. The instructions are simple and to the point; that way we're not overwhelmed--they must be as easy as you say! Perfect job!

Have you thought of adding any beads or charms--something dangly? Do you think that would work?

Thanks again for sharing your great project!

(I know I'm a little late here, but I'm new to Craftster :-x )

She is very lovely! (and so flexible! Wink )
  I love her Ina Braun! Smiley

I'm not much of a sports person, but figure skating has always been my favorite! The skaters are so beautiful and graceful, yet *so strong*!

When skaters (intentionally) do goofs they're hilarious; but when they skate to sad music--especially the pairs skaters--it makes your heart cry.  :*(

Did you make your dancing snowflake from a pattern, or do you design your own? What have you named her? (I espescially love her beautiful red hair--is she fashioned after someone?)

Thank you so much for sharing her. <3
