11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Mature topic-ladies eco-flow busters*** MORE PICS ADDED!*** on: February 10, 2009 02:05:21 AM
Hahahhaaa... etsy millionaire! I love it! Well, I hope people will make their own really, I mean, these babies are time consuming... I have a good friend who says, she will knit socks for love not money! I know exactly what she means!!! I think she figured it out and to knit a pair of socks (that won't hurt your feet for the bulk or cheap yarn-ness!) she would make like 2 bucks an hour to sell them at an affordable price! not worth the time really! But honestly, the tampons are fairly easy to pump out when you are in the sweat shop mode, you've got your yarns all out and a good movie on! Just single crochet your little heart away! I can't wait to see if someone tries them with some organic fabric! I really don't have the patience (or skill!) to sew anything that small!!! Smiley

The idea is amazing Grin but I agree with Caterpillar Peacock about using unbleached and undyed cotton. I have another concern, a month ago I saw on TV an interview with a designer that use only organic cotton in her clothes, she explained that "normal" cotton grown full with pesticides so maybe this can be a little harmful. I live in Mexico and I don't know if is easy and cheap to get chemical and pesticide free cotton.
If you do any research, you would end up naked eating twigs in the forest! I am serious!!! Check out what tampons consist of, then take a look at how we get those 'ingredients'. I have said it before but the simple process of bleaching (with chlorine) is terrible for the environment and you!
There is a great debate about how much dioxin is present as a result of the processing of rayons (which are in tampons) and other wood products, some are of the thinking that eliminating as much contact with dioxins, no matter how minute, can greatly reduce all kinds of health risks, not just cancer. Get yourself some organic fiber, whatever it is and make your own, use them once, twice or three times my lady, but get away from those plastic manufactured chemical filled hygeine products! You can make them yourself and be confident you are doing yourself and the environment a great service! Smiley If you can't find organic yarns, try finding organic fabrics. If you can't sew, cut the fabric into strips and crochet away!!!

Please, just remember to change them frequently! And use clean hands!!! Grin

Well Retro Rose has spoiled me rotten! I have received yet another package from her! Man she has an amazing creative artistic eye! She sent me a project bag, but it's not just any old bag, it has a colorful flair let me tell you! She appliqued a flower on the front, and added seed bead detail for little seeds in the center, but that's not all! The actual center of the flower is a large grommet. Why you ask? Well, that is where you feed your yarn through! It comes out the middle of the flower!!! And better yet, the petals of the flower have been lightly stuffed with poly fill so they are 3-D-ish! You gotta see this bag!!! I need to get my photos up for you all! I took some quick pics of the birthday wrap and neat-o tag, and she even wrote me a birthday poem!!!! I will get you all an action shot as I am sure to get this bag going with a project straight away!
Thanks Retro Rose! Thanks a million!!!
