Wondering what to do with microfiche cards. I just found out that the library where I work gets them but simply throws them out since we don't use them or have a reader or anything. I think they look cool but I've got crafter's block. Any ideas other than artist trading cards?
I have a weird problem. My university's dorms have weird mattress sizes. They're something like "long twin" or "wide twin" size. I couldn't find sheets of that size so I got regular twin, and they all seem to fit... except the fitted sheet barely fits and keeps popping off! It was like this all last year and it's really bugging me. Any ideas for neat crafty tricks to make the fitted sheet stay on???
Hi there. I've been making handmade recycled paper for a long time, but never tried adding anything besides paper. I've heard of paper make with cotton rag and I have a big bag of cheap 100%-cotton cotton balls. I'd like to add these to some of my paper, but I'm not quite sure where they fit in the equation. Should I put them in the blender with the paper I'm recycling, or wait until after and just mix it in my pulp in tiny chunks? Please let me know if anyone has any experience they can share with this! Also - same question, but with bits of thread and yarn
I'm a Craftster/college student in Kentwood/Caledonia just south of GR. I'm moving all the way back to Saginaw for the summer this weekend, and I have too much stuff to take back with me! If you want to help, here's what I have in mind:
- Boxes. I think I can get boxes from work, but I may need some extra boxes if you have extras, preferably small ones, to pack up everything that I can fit in my car to take home. If you have any, let me know by PM and I'll let you know friday or saturday if I need them. - Trades. I have a bunch of handmade recycled paper I made that I can trade if you're interested. If you wanted to do this, I could even trade (sell) the paper for money or give you until September when I come back to GR to fulfill your half of the trade. - Ideas. If you know any good ways to pack up a car full of stuff while saving space or any secrets to getting the most out of space, feel free to post them, email them to me, PM me, etc!
If there's any way you think you can help me, let me know. I know it's short notice, but finals week kicked the crap outta me and I didn't realize that I had hoarded as much crafty stuff as I did!
Hey everyone. I just made this pillow the last couple days. It's my first embroidery project and my first pillow. I used scraps from old no-sew fleece blankets I've made because I'm trying to get things cleaned up for moving out of the dorms for the summer. Anywho, sorry for the crap photos but here it is:
You can't see it here, but the top has the same green brown green pattern and the back has the creamy off-white like the middle as well as some plain white scraps. The design is meant to be like the design on my website - thegriddle.net. Let me know what you think!
I'd like to make a bean bag chair/sofa using fleece, but I don't have any sewing supplies or skills. Is there some cool way I can combine the ideas of a bean bag chair and a no-sew fleece blanket without all the beans falling out through the gaps between the knots? I was thinking garbage bags, but they might tear open easily. If someone has a suggestion, I'd love to hear it
I know that to sell on Etsy you need to have a credit card. If I was to use the credit card almost exclusively for Etsy, what kind of credit card would be best to get? I've never had one before so I don't know what to look for, but I'd like one with very little to pay as far as credit card fees go. Like as long as I pay on time, no trouble, you know what I mean? I have a lot of recycled paper to sell and could make a lot more nice crafts, but I'd hate for credit card fees to take up all my profit! Any suggestions would be great!
It would be cool if there was a page that found all of the ATCs in the picture hosting database and shuffle them like a deck of cards and you could 'draw' a random card to look at, like a gallery. There could even be a Craftster picture for the card back so it would look snazzy. If it pulled all images with a special ATC tag it wouldn't be too hard to create this page. How about it?
