1901  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knit Pattern Help on: February 12, 2006 10:35:50 PM
i am a little confused as to WHAT pattern you are doing....that may help in helping  you...
Agreed.  If you're talking about changing colors then that would be either intarsia or fair isle knitting depending on how the pattern goes.  There's a chance you may need to use bobbins, but again I don't know what pattern you're talking about.  This site has video help on whatever kind of knitting you need:  www.knittinghelp.com
1902  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Clear Vinyl? on: February 12, 2006 10:25:35 PM
While using recycled vinyl is a good idea and wise decision for our environment, I don't know that it is the best source for project work.  Vinyl will bend and looks creased, scratched - even yellowed with age.  And for the little bit of vinyl you would get out of most recycled products I don't think it is even a good buy.  Vinyl is very affordable and I think it comes in 50" widths. 
I agree.  I bought my vinyl at JoAnne's like rayno24 and because the bolt is soo long, you could get 5 inches of it and that would last you for a long time (depending on what you're crafting).  I think the lowest amount JoAnne's will cut for you is 2 inches.  Some of the vinyl I bought was on sale, so I got a 10 gauge green-clear vinyl and yellow-clear vinyl for 28 cents!  It was 2.00 a yard.  Regularly it's 2.99 a yard, so the other 5 inches I bought (12 gauge clear)ended up being 42 cents.  Oh and they come in different thicknesses, hence the gauge.

So...  could we actually work on this now?  Or are there guidelines other than the ABC?
1904  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Rubber Stamp Swap on: February 12, 2006 06:33:49 PM
I think if you want something really detailed, it would be easier to cut into something that doesn't have as much "give" how foam does.  A regular pink eraser or lino would be ideal.  For the foam, I use an X-Acto knife to cut the shapes..  For the lino I used wood carving hand tools.  Dental tools are also useful.  I'm not sure if you can get lino at regular craft stores.. it's used more for printmaking.  Thus, I bought mine at Dick Blick Art Materials.
1905  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Johnny Depp Swap (Sign-ups Feb.9-Feb.25,Mail by March 15) on: February 12, 2006 10:31:55 AM
The reason that I like Johnny Depp is because he always plays the "strange and unusual" character and he does it so well. 
1906  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Greenthumbs! Let's Cultivate Spring! on: February 11, 2006 10:51:28 PM
Soon I'll be repotting and potting on plants and, hey, what about a swap for spring?  I'm still learning about how to take care of plants and, no, my African Violet did not survive.  So, new growers and wise growers alike would be welcome.  We can swap seeds, pots, plant accesories, or even little kits for growing your own (blank).  I think it would be a cheery swap to chase away winter blues.

I checked out a good source from my local library--  You Grow Girl by Gayla Trail.  It has both fun crafts to make and information on growing your own greenery.  The author also has a website:  http://www.yougrowgirl.com/
1907  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: carnivorous plants? on: February 11, 2006 10:34:36 PM
I like plants.  I'm thinking that "carniverous plants" is too specific, maybe just about a favorite plant?  I think pitcher plants have an intersting shape, they fall under carniverous, but lithops are sweet, too because they look like rocks, fungi, or little brains.  or all three.  I'm a fan of succulents. 
I like the idea of swapping seeds, planters, etc.  Hunh, maybe that one can be a separate idea.
1908  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: e.e. cummings swap?? on: February 11, 2006 10:29:20 PM
I like the idea of it.  I have a huge book of e.e. cummings from my bf.  I think it would definately take more thought, though.
1909  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Rubber Stamp Swap on: February 11, 2006 10:28:02 PM
I like making stamps.  Right now I've been making them out of foam sheets.  Before that, I carved them out of lino, which I also used for printing on tees.  But the foam soaks in some of the ink, so it always prints out differently.  Plus, I just made large foam stamps with hearts as Valentines! 
1910  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Animal Crossing Theme Swap? on: February 11, 2006 10:24:40 PM
I like Animal Crossing, too!  I don't have a DS, just about everything else, though.  I'm in the video game swap now and I put down that Animal Crossing was one of my faves.  Have you seen the cute little figures they make? www.videogamefigures.com
