1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old Books? on: January 01, 2010 10:20:15 AM
If you have books that have nice (hard back) covers, you can remove the pages and bind new pages into old covers. Takes some patience but they'll make beautiful note- or sketchbooks. Also, you can carve one into a box. The pages could probably be used for making papier mach for sculpting (of course you can also make recycled paper from the pulp) or something if you don't want cover objects with them as they are.

I have also made cat toys out of those plastic capsules, but instead of just putting catnip in them I partly fill them with something rattling or jingling and then needle felt the capsules. I have thought about mixing some catnip into felt but haven't tried that yet, so I'm not sure how that would work.

Oh wow! Love it! Believe it or not, the same thing has been on my mind (Monkey Island is probably the only game Ive ever been addicted to), but I havent done any MI-related cross-stitching yet. At least now I know its doable and will look cool Cheesy Congratulations on great job!
4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Post here, if u made or altered a skully sweater from Stitch n Bitch on: September 29, 2005 08:43:48 AM
I really liked the idea of Skully, but wanted some shaping - so I used Cowl pattern from the same book, but used stockinette stitch, added the skulls to the sleeves, and made no cowl but a neckline similar to Skullys . And, well, I didnt use the original skull pattern either, but Junko Mizunos  skull bunny logo, so Im not so sure if this actually counts as Skully Sweater... Anyway, mine turned out great, and I have achieved lots of compliments. As for yarn, I used Garnstudios Alfa (gauge 13st./10cm).
