Oops...I guess if I am going to post things, I should at least log in and check my threads! Smiley

Yes, I think a crafty meeting of sorts would be great! Are any of you familiar with the Hand Maden Meet-Up group in the area? Here's the link: http://www.meetup.com/handmadens/calendar/

Thank you for your advice! I am so happy to know that it is possible to re-felt parts of a project!!! I will have to try it...
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old Navy Crewneck Sweater felted into SUPER CUTE Sweater! on: October 18, 2007 09:53:43 AM
My first (successful) felting project:



I should have taken a before picture but it was a basic charcoal grey crewneck sweater from Old Navy. The thing was shapeless and made me look like a boy (well, with the obvious female parts). So I felted it and made a cute girly sweater that makes me look like a girl. Imagine that!

Right now it is fastened with 3 safety pins embellished with little black bows. I didn't want to make any rash decisions and end up with snaps or buttonholes I abhor so I figured this would buy me some time and creative energy. 

One problem (which I hope you all can help to solve!): I shortened the sleeves but it seems they did not felt as solidly and I am afraid they might unravel more when washed. Any ideas? A simple hem? Blanket stitching? Can you felt just one area of a peice? Or am I just plain screwed and will never be able to wash it? Smiley

I love photography and I have taken a couple classes so I am all too familiar with the silver developing reels. (which, by the way, drive me insane too!) Those are great ideas! Now I just need to find a good source for cheap equipment.  The bottom left and top right cameras were purchased at a pharmacy in a small town in Nebraska. Should have bought more... Smiley

you could use a large wide mouth jar and a smaller jar.  put a pic in the small jar with some marbles to give it weight.  put the small jar in the large jar and fill it with water.

I like that idea---you could maintain the functionality of a "vase" but have the fun frame too.  Now I just need to find me someone to buy me fresh flowers all of the time...  Smiley

is it waterproof?  My MIL would love something like that!

No, it's not waterproof. I had a stack of pictures lying around...and I had an empty vase...so I just curled up the picture and stuck it down inside the vase.

It's a magnetic snap and I can only find them at ONE Walmart in my area. I have yet to find them at any fabric store around here. Sad BUT, you can find them online extremely easy. I like them MUCH better than the normal snaps.  For me, they are easier to install and easier to use.

There is a guy on Ebay that sells them for fairly inexpensive... Ah Kwok supplies. 

Thanks for the tip! I will definitely check him out.
