Very pretty, and I love the leaf, the way it seems to be made out of many colors

If I walked past you on the street, I would never know it wasn't professional!  Lovely

It was such a cute idea, I had to make one for myself.

The material: purple tape measure, in the value bin at my local JoAnn's for $.49, Superglue from Walmart, and 1 inch pin backs from JoAnn's
The time it took: 10 minutes
The result: Way cute

I can't wait to give it to my Grandma, a crafter since forever.  I told her about the project and she was excited.

The only problem now is trying to get the remainders of the glue off my hands. 
44  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old CDs / AOL CDs / AOL CD Cases on: July 20, 2005 07:45:43 AM
I had a bunch of AOL cds that I used in my dorm.  I got some blue stuff, some tape, etc, and I got atop my bunk bed (oh, college dorms) and I attached them all to the ceiling.  I got the most coverage by laying out the first row, then the second row was taped up half a cd in, so that the cds formed rows on diagonals across my ceiling.  It looked awesome, especially when laying on the bed.

However...
1. Guys think a cheap mirror over your bed is great, which has it's own problems
2. I never could find something strong enough to keep them up there that wouldn't ruin the paint on the dorm ceiling.  Often, I would wake up and find them a few on me.  I had about 70 up there, and I think each one fell down at least once, so I was forever putting them back up there, and towards the end of the year, I got tired and just let them fall, which meant I had ugly blue and tape staring at me. 

I liked it for sophomore year, but at the end, when I was cleaning out my room, I tossed them all.  I just couldn't take it anymore.

Thanks!

Hmmm, I suppose I have to move beyond the double stitch with slightly too big hooks...

I always wondered, because I see people with cut up shirts like that, don't the edges fray terribly when you wash teh shirt?  Or is it a one-time wear shirt?

That's lovely!  I really like the color, as well, as it compliments your hair.

How much bigger was the shirt when it was the "ugly baggy tank"?  The tails in the back seem really long, so it seems the first shirt must have been huge- unless, and maybe you said this, but I don't think you described it this way, you did the back of the shirt with zig-zag cuts... but then, the ties look even, so I must admit, I am confused.

Awesome!

I always wondered: when you made your dolls, what did you stuff them with?  I tend to be able to see through my stitches, so I would think white cotton stuffing wouldn't work.  Do you stuff it with yarn, or do you make your stitches so tight no one can see through them?

Please, that thing is wicked cute.  I say, keep the necklace and dump the boyfriend.  Jewelry is more important than lame men anyway.

That is great!  I can picture them on lots of things.  Wonderful job!
