Wow! I didn't know it meant that in the US!!!  In Australia a rat bag is an obnoxious person.  Well there you go, you learn something new every day.  Wink
683  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Poster Boy Bag on: February 17, 2006 02:36:27 PM
brightlights:  I have software which makes patterns (cross stitch) and I assume from looking at previous knitting pics that it's kinda the same principal.  Anyway, here are some really quick patterns (ie. minimal effort)  I have come up with (Clark Gable is Gomez Adams, is that right??  I love him).



Let me know if you want more effort put in and whether another picture might suit better??  Wink
684  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Mouse Pouch/Rat Bag on: February 17, 2006 02:10:19 PM
My son is getting a mouse for his 7th birthday.  We both wanted to make something for it!!  Roll Eyes  I found this on Ebay http://stores.ebay.com.au/Mon-Ami-Petstuff_Mouse-Pouches_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQftidZ2QQtZkm and thought this would be the perfect thing to make.  It's called a Mouse Pouch.  There was also another one called a Rat Bag (which its dimensions were 30cm x 30cm [ie. 12in x 12in]) - cool names, I thought!!

Soooooo..... here is my version (complete with pink raw silk - cuz I wanna girl mouse.  Apparently they don't stink as much).  My dimensions were 8 inch square.  I used pink raw silk, blue polar fleece (cut from my other son's dressing gown which doesn't fit anymore) and a layer of wadding.



and opened....

Here are a few sets of jewellry I made for my son's Kindy teacher.  This first set I made for her birthday:





....and I still have beads left  Roll Eyes

These other sets, I made with beads the teacher gave me which she had but never got into beading and asked me to make something for her.  Sad  Do you think she likes pink???!!??



If you want to know anything further - I'm more than happy to share  Grin

This is what the instructions said:

"Home made blockout is made by simmering "Future" acrylic floorwax
in a pan on the stove until it thickens to a paintable consistency.
I add a little red food coloring to make the acrylic blockout visible.
Ammonia is the solvent for this."


I can't seem to find any info. on the ingredients of Future Floor Wax - hmmm - anyone else know what's in Future Floor Wax???

I'm a willing guinea pig though - I will have a go at it at some stage!!!  I'll keep you posted.

They look gorgeous!!  I like the one Cosmo is modelling - what a fantastic model too.  I agree, it's hard to find nice boys clothes! Cheesy 
689  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Leather Journal on: February 13, 2006 09:36:51 PM
eemoody:  I cut the leather using a rotary cutter and quilters ruler.  Went through really easy.  You can also cut leather with ordinary scissors.  Here is one I did with the front decorated.  I used a leather punch (obviously with the letter "S") then used leather dye to paint the indented "S" then coated the square with a leather top coat then glued on the square of leather to the front cover using good ol' Diamond Glaze.



I also did another journal using an exercise book as the pages (rather than the handmade pages).  I cut the exercise book to 7.5cm wide then in half to get two "signatures".  I then used an ordinary drill and drilled holes in the "spine" of the exercise books.  Here's what it looks like - and as you can see from this pic, that the leather is not thin and the rotary cutter had no problem cutting through it:



If you want more info, let me know!! Grin

Great job Riley & Mum!!  I bet Riley is so proud of his work!!  As he should - what a project to tackle!!!

Echoing everyone's comments about raising crafty boys!!!  I'm teaching my 6 year old son to sew - he sewed two pillowcases, one for him and one for his little brother.  He's sooooooo proud of it.
