1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: karate belts on: July 28, 2005 04:29:26 PM
If you're going to sew through them, probably invest in one of those sharp-as-hell leatherworking needles, or you're going to wind up with finger-damage.

Yeah, mine's a stitch ripper, too.
'Course, I'm still a real beginner. My sewing machine doesn't even HAVE a tension setting, because I cheaped out and got a really entry level one.
When I win the lottery, I'm going to buy one of those ones that'll embroider initials and monogram all of my husbands underpants.

I'm all about the creative show-and-tell.
Baby snake... eaten!
That's an excellent idea and so fun. Nice work, and I'm sure a lot of us are going to be inspired now.

I think those look awesome.
I knitted the hemp monkey bag and felt like I'd been bailing hay, my hands were so sore.
And then when I washed it, it was rediculously small and smelled like cat sick.
Your bags are superior to mine (which is now a little-things catch-all in my craft room.)  Roll Eyes
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Plastic Canvas Long Stitch on: June 01, 2005 10:20:04 PM
This is my first post!
And I'm starting right in with a question.
When my brother was born, my mum made him a zebra picture and he still loves it and it was made by a method called plastic canvas long stitch. I've looked online and other than country-craft Kleenex boxes, I'm not having a lot of luck finding any kind of patterns or helpful how-tos.
I'd like to kind of modernize the craft and do up some framed pieces for my brother for his birthday (which is in December, so I've got LOOOOOADS of time), but don't know where to start.
Do any of you cool ladies know anything about this kind of craft?
