21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help! Really Ugly Turquoise Leather Purse on: March 08, 2014 01:56:52 PM
You could use some stencils or stamps to make a pattern or irregular pattern with a color you do like, if you can tolerate the old blue coming through. For the inside, if you don't want to take the lining out/bag apart, you can either hand stitch a new lining to the old one, hot glue it in, or sew some snaps all around the inside top and snap a new lining in.

Or you can do the opposite and put the snaps on the outside and make a new cover.  Though that might be just like making an entirely new purse.

Does leather bleach?  You could try some bleach stencils, maybe.

Oh, I had to look that one up! Apparently regular bleach ruins the finish, but there's a leather bleach you can get. Interesting, since I'll be trying some leather projects in the future.

You can try some templates at worldlabel.com, I used to print a lot of labels, and their templates were pretty good. http://www.worldlabel.com/Pages/template_1.htm

If you're doing a no-bake, it's best to put the fruit on just before serving so the fruit doesn't sweat into the "cake" part too much. Once in a while I get a craving for a no-bake. It's got a bit of a different flavor, brings back childhood memories.

I think a box of samples would serve you better in a face-to-face and folks could actually get a notion of the size, weight, etc. That, along with the flier/order form should be enough to get folks on board.

Why not make a variety of bags? I personally need big, boxy bags with longish handles so I and my offspring The Precioussss can swing 'em around our big winter coat shoulders and carry the whole lot of suckers up 3 flights of stairs to the apartment in one go!

I would just make a simple flier, maybe a half sheet with one side pics/examples and one side a price list. Don't wait for other bands to ask for one, go round to the other tables and make purposeful contacts.

Here's the thing about wholesale: to get a good price, you need to buy a ton of beads. Try ebay - you can get some good deals, and you might find something "interesting" from someone who wants to unload their bead collection.

I have a mini crock pot and it's perfect for a pork loin, fat trimmed off, cut in 2 halves to fit the pot, added 1/3 cup of chicken broth and beef broth, tsp or so of thyme, fennel seeds, dried parsley, and plenty of garlic, 1/2 can of fire roasted tomatoes, sprinkles of sea salt and pepper, let 'er cook on slow overnight and in the morning you'll be wanting slow-cooked, falling-apart pork for breakfast (which we do!). We keep it in the fridge to pick at it all week, my daughter and I love meat, but more as an additive to rice and vegetables or something, so it's perfect for that.
