This is awesome! What does "couch it down" mean?
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Holey socks on: December 27, 2011 09:38:00 AM
I have too many socks and tights:

And I want to thin out my collection. The most obvious place to start is by getting rid of the socks with holes in the heels... but I'm crafty at heart and can't throw anything away. I just don't know what to make with them, though. Most sock animals seem to be pretty heel-centric. Any ideas?

Oh, whoa, I forgot I posted this. Thanks for all the feedback and compliments! Smiley

I know how addictive making envelopes can be! Once I get started I get in a robotic state. The cutting, folding, gluing etc are a little monotonous but in a therapeutic way.

Just wondered if you'd thought of trying envelope glue as opposed to double sided tape?

For really old books I do use double sided tape, but when i'm making envies from fresh, store-bought/magazine freebie papers I use an envelope glue called "lick n stick". it's quite time saving.

It's weird, because the actions themselves are boring enough but I don't get bored! I didn't know such a thing even existed. I'll have to look into it.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lumpy Space Pillow! on: May 13, 2011 06:36:30 PM
I made this out of a weird scarf that I've been cutting up for a while because it's so soft. It's the same color as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time so I thought it would be perfect to make her. I used a zigzag stitch on my machine to make her arms, eyebrows, and mouth. I had never tried something like that before and they came out a little bit weird, but I still like her! Her bottom lumps came out too small, also. Oh, well. I stuffed her pretty lumpily but that was on purpose, I promise! Let me know what you think. Smiley



This is the picture I used as a reference:

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reversible tote from a Ghost Mice t-shirt on: April 26, 2011 12:45:18 PM
My friend gave me some band shirts that didn't fit and told me to make stuff with them. This shirt had the album art for the Ghost Mice/Andrew Jackson Jihad split (which I love love love) and I thought it would be cool in bag form.


The front! It was really difficult to measure/mark the stretchy black fabric, so I eventually just stopped trying and winged it.

The back! These pictures are pretty bad. I'm sorry!

The other side! I probably should have picked something that matched the bag better, hah.

Thanks for looking. Smiley

I would love to get any one of these in the mail! Super cute!

Right? I had a few more of the first set and used one to send a letter to my friend... but it got sent back to me with a big ugly sticker on it about how it was too small! Bleh.

Just adorable Cheesy
Thanks!

They're actually 4 5/8" x 3 1/4", not 5 5/8". I tried to edit it, but couldn't without getting rid of the pictures again. Bleh.
