1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A baby blanket, using stash fabric on: March 30, 2007 08:51:21 PM
I really like patchwork, but I really dislike the actual quilting process - I've a tiny sewing machine, it usually turns out wonky and lumpy and awful.

So this time, I decided to avoid all of that by just piecing the top and backing it with a cute flannel. (I feel really lazy, but hey. It worked and looked good.)

All the fabric was in the stash already, and the half-triangle squares were left over from an earlier project, so I felt very thrifty using them up.

I'm a little bummed cause I gave it to a friend for his new baby, but his wife was really lukewarm. She was like, oh, its reversible. Pah. Ah well. It was fun making it.




2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Notecard swap? on: December 18, 2006 02:52:52 PM
Not sure if this has been done before, but would anyone be interested in a notecard swap? I never saw a notecard that I didn't want...

I figure if people can sign up for sets of 4 notecards - so if they choose to make 1 set, they receive 1 set, and if they choose to make 4 sets, they get 4 sets back, and so on.

Anyone?
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Do you use Etsy to buy commercial supplies? on: November 02, 2006 10:33:21 AM
I'm kind of curious about people who sell commercial supplies on Etsy. Does it work, or is a dedicated website just for supplies better? Where do you guys buy supplies from (apart from Joanns or Michaels, of course?)
 
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Help! I need a logo! on: July 10, 2006 10:12:04 PM
I posted on the Crafty Business Ventures board, but I'll double-post, because I desperately need help!!!!

I'm thinking of starting a business in my home country (India), except I'd be starting it remotely, and there are a zillion reasons why it could fail. And of course, as always, funds are in short supply, which leads me to this -

Would anyone be interested in designing me a logo in exchange for something crafted? (I can't draw to save my life.) I can sew, so I swap 3 sewn bags (if there's a tutorial to a bag you want, I can probably figure it out) for a logo. Alternately, I can swap 10 yards of 100% cotton  African tie-dye for a logo, if you'd prefer.

I'm envisioning the logo to be cartoon-anime-like, vaguely similar to the "woman in the martini glass" thing. Please pm me if interested, and I'll be more specific.

(I'm not a lawyer, but the fine print is that you'll be relinquishing rights to your logo in exchange of the bags or the cloth, so then I would own it and can use it for commercial purposes.) 

Thanks!

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Coasters help - how do I seal a photo on a coaster? on: May 17, 2006 09:59:51 PM
I'm trying to make my boyfriend some coasters, except I don't know how - hoping someone can help?

I have these cork coasters that I'm trying to glue some photos on. But I figure to be useful as coasters, I'll need to seal them pretty well, so the paper doesn't get soaked through. Problem is, I have not the slightest idea what product to use.

Help?

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Room and Board furniture - my version! on: April 13, 2006 08:16:59 PM
I'm in the process of buying a new camera, but I wanted to share a project I did a couple of years ago. I saw this shelving unit at Room and Board, but it was ridiculously expensive and looked simple to do.

After some calculation, a long shopping trip at Lowe's, and some labor, here's my version...





Basically, Lowes cut sheets of MDF into the sizes I needed, and then I just screwed them together, and painted. It took a couple of days, but it wasn't hard to do.

(And my apartment is always a mess, unfortunately.)
