I melted crayons in between vinyl - you know how you melt crayon shavings between wax paper? Same thing. I just used crayons melted between clear vinyl. I blogged about it here - http://www.carolbrowne.com/index.php?itemid=1713

I'm so glad you liked your stuff! Also, Smarties? I think you liked them. Heh!

Sheesh, my stuff is sure taking it's time to get to you, Pam. YIKES!

Well, that's just genius on both counts. I never thought to broil the plastic, either. I was just not that brave...but now, now I will. Also, to melt the beads and then make them into strips of plastic to re-melt again? Very, very smart indeed.

Here we go! First off, I got a lamp. Pinky K made me a lamp! Look!

The lampshade looks like it's made of glass. It looks awesome in the dark. I love it.

Next, I got a fruit bowl. Pam needs to explain herself on this one! How on earth did you make plastic look so beautiful? How did you make this bowl? I filled it full of oranges as it came all the way from Florida:

I also got some cool jewelry. I love skulls and got this very cool bracelet and two pendants. My guess with the skulls is that they are made from Fimo. But again, Pam, please explain!

I love my stuff, Pam. It all turned out really, really well. I sure hope you tell us how you made these items. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I also blogged about it on my website here - http://carolbrowne.com/index.php?itemid=1724
5  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Melting Madness Swap! Sign-ups CLOSED; Send-out by 10/09/07 on: October 16, 2007 06:57:57 PM
I have received my beautiful, beautiful items. I'll be posting the photos tonight. I got really lucky with PinkyK as a swap partner. She made me a lamp, a great fruit bowl/platter that really looks like glass. I have no idea how she made such a classy looking bowl! It's great. I got a very funky bracelet with skulls and two necklaces.

Thanks, Pam! I love, love, my gifts.

I got it from the FibreFestival a few years ago and it didn't have a label - it was rolled up in a skein. Sorry! I can't even remember the name of the company at the booth where I bought it.

I used a free pattern from the Lions Brand website and just made it smaller for my little MP3 player. I knitted it flat, folded it in half and crocheted 2 sides closed. I'm a slow knitter - it took me about 7 hours to knit this from sock yarn on 3.25 needles. I only had to make a rectangle that was 10 inches by 8 inches (my mp3 player is little). Good thing that's all I needed or I would have taken a week to finish it.

For the laniard, I used the bookmark pattern from the Crochet Me website: (http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_book_thong.html) and I kept the hardware from the original laniard (just a plastic piece of string) and replaced the plastic string with my fancy crocheted yarn.
