31  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / MIP: Minion in Progress...and an adhesive question on: February 22, 2011 10:00:49 AM
Working on these for the kids 9well, OK, I have been playing with the two that are "almost" done already!


I am using a fine crochet hook (one of the steel ones, small enough I can't see the number) to make the goggles, and am crocheting around a plastic googly eye. I was thinking of simply sewing this in place, but it looks a little messy. pluss, I stuffed these boys with firmly packed cotton batting for some heft, so I am having a hard time sewing.

Anyone have a suggestion for a glue that would work? the "material" is the floss pictured...

Great idea--I pretty much run a retirement home for old grannies and scrapghans! I can't resist them, and have found lots of ways to use them but that didn't occur to me!
 
Kinda funny:
I had a party here at the farm , and made what I thought was a pretty and inviting "ladies" area under a big oak outside. Guests ranged from 3 years old to 84, so lots of different folks were here.

I used our outdoor furniture and dragged out a coffee table and tufted ottomans and even a throw rug. I used the grannies and all of my "cutter" quilts on the furniture, to either wrap the cushions or hang over the backs--it was November, so chilly enough that wrapping up in a warm afghan with tea or coco was perfect for a chat. We're talking about 10 comfy spots, each with an afghan to curl up in

We also have a big deck and barbeque area with a table and snacks, I figured the guys would congregate there. Nope...after the first half hour, men ranging from 19-80+ were snuggled down in the afghans talking like they were at a quilting bee, while the ladies camped out on the porch!  Thats what I get for trying to predict based on gender!

39  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Consignment problems at Queen City Emporium on: January 26, 2011 04:41:30 PM
Hi,
 I hope no one here was affected, but wanted to share this anyway. Queen City Emporium is apparently having some issues with multiple consignment crafters; they have thus far not paid crafters for sold items or returned unsold merchandise. I have put details including links to news stories and ways to get help on my blog. Hope this doesn't affect anyone here, I am such a huge supporter of handmade and of the small businesses that consign correctly, this is just sad news for all involved. http://samanthamcnesby.blogspot.com/2011/01/crafter-beware-queen-city-emporium.html

Super easy Smiley
I grabbed some nails and secured them into the cross shape with wire, kind of like you would start a gods-eye from popsicle sticks and yarn, if that makes sense. Then I just wrapped the wire around the whole thing to give it some bulk....the last few wraps contained the beads.

Hope that makes sense, and thanks Smiley
