1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Laura Ingalls Wilder Bonnet PATTERN on: August 21, 2009 10:24:36 PM
Hello fellow craftster's.  I need to make a pioneer bonnet for a costume and can't find a simple pattern for one.  So I was hoping someone could share there pattern or sewing instructions w/ me.  I'd really appreciate it!  
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: spray adhesive on: January 25, 2008 05:05:21 AM
 I use 3M brand adhesive spray.  Fist thing, make sure you are in a well ventilated room or garage.  You need to make sure you cover anything that is in a 2-3ft area of your project because if it gets on any furniture or rugs/floors you will be able to feel the semi-tacky residue.  Just be smart when using it.  The bigger the project the is, the more area you will to need protect.  Do not spray at close range!  It comes out like liquid glue (especially if your doing glitter).  The glitter will stick to it but there is a slim possibility that it may remain tacky and it brushes off easily.  It depends on what you're making.  Is it going to be in a high traffic area?  Then I might suggest a different material, maybe leaves or dried flower.  It would be less messy.  You don't want to constantly have glitter falling off.  If it's protected then I say go for it.  Good luck!

I have always been pleased with this company: http://www.firemountaingems.com/  they have everything under the sun and for a reasonable price.  Good luck!

Is this your first time experimenting with a spray adhesive?  If so, be careful with the glitter portion of you project.  I am not exactly sure what type of product you're planning to use but, spray adhesive is a bit tacky and might not be the best choice to adhere the glitter with. Spraying the adhesive and then adhering two solid things together is slick as snot but I worry about the glitter because I tried to add decorative glitter to my Christmas name tags and I found myself having to swipe a cottonball across the tags to cover the tackiness.  Luckily it looked like I intentionally did this to give the tags a snowy look.  Just thought I'd share.  Good luck with your product.  And YES! Spray adhesive rocks in the crafting world.

Yes, hemp jewelry and floss jewelery use the same knotting techniques.

Do you remember the embroidery floss jewelry that was trendy in the 80's?  If so this will be much easier for you.  Anyways, there are four pieces of thread in total, and a slip not on each end, which means they slipped the beads they intended on using onto the two middle strands.  Then on one end you tie a slip knot, (how to at http://www.bellaonline.com/ArticlesP/art4277.asp) leave the beads at the bottom of the two middle strings,  You do a knot I believe we called the mirrored 4 but don't quote me on that.  You draw the far left thread across the two middle threads only and like the number 4
over the top, around the back and up through the front making a knot and pushing or working it up to the top of the slip knot.  Flip it over and do the other side.  I'm going to see if you can make it to this point before I type this all out.  Good luck.
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Ponderosa Pine Cones on: May 25, 2007 10:03:08 PM
Hi!  My friend from CO. has what he's calling "a pine cone nightmare".  I was wonder if anyone had any ideas of what we could do w/ them.  Cool yard decor?  Some sort of recycling or bedding of a garden?  He's looking for an easy way to solve his back yard dilemma.  I had a ton of projects I would do if I was blessed w/ a gold mine of pine cones, but he does not see it that way.  Any IDEAS??

Use spray adhesive.  It's the best way I've found to line things like that.

No, it's you just have to use deionized spray's.  Bath and Body use to carry them for like 15 dollars a bottle.  That filled the perfume bottle a half a dozen times.

I'm glad you enjoyed my suggestion.  I made a set for my mother and she loved it.  She really dug the pounded floral art along the trim.  Have fun crafting.
