I have seen a Kool-Aid Jammer HANDBAG, like last week.  I bugged the girl about it (I could tell that she didn't want me to know anything), but she EVENTUALLY told me that she bought it at a bazaar.

Those are "kool".  Let's put our heads together for a handbag, gals!

Wild, I'm not sure of what you mean. 

When you say "retro", are you speaking of pin-up girl stuff and boomerang stenciling?  When you say grandma, are you speaking of.......checkerboarded-cow motifs?
When you say traditional, are you speaking of Martha Stewart?

I noticed that the things here are funky and quirky...which I love, because there is a movement of today's crafters who aren't into the "toilet paper cozy thing", as the homepage so eloquently stated.  Embroidery is a traditional craft, but someone here may put a spin on it and embroider a skull or fist & middle finger.  That someone could be me, 'cause I hate flowers (unless they are the cartoony/Scooby-Doo kind).

You may not find pictures of gingham skirts, but you will find some that are made out of  ties and Spiderman pillowcases.  I wouldn't call those retro, but they are WAY cool! 

Right?

Holy, Camoly!!!

I'm loving that idea!!!!!  I, too, am a hot pink, fuschia, magenta, raspberry queen!  Will it be feasible for you to get the swatch card first (to check the weight and color)?

I'm with craft-matic on the thin plexiglass top for protection.  If you go that route, then the sky's the limit on how you decorate underneath.

As fire said, gift wrap would be good, but then you may be able to find some retro wallpaper, or get the paintable wallpaper & do your own designs- covering with the plexi, of course. 

Maybe you could follow the same instructions for painting/ designing on laminate countertops (though a lot of people are against it, it still can be done if YOU want to do it).  I think that would get the same type or amount of wear & tear as a table would.

It won't be hard to re-do, just time consuming. 

Hopefully, I won't have to re-do it.  I'll try to heat set it, and if that doesn't work ......(maybe someone will have a solution).

That might be a good thread to start.  "When Crafting Goes Wrong".  I need some motivation & support right now, 'cause I'm really heartbroken.

Hi everyone!

I painted my bathroom recently, and could not find a fabric shower curtain to match.  (I have to use fabric instead of vinyl, because there is no ventilation in the bathroom, and I have problems with mildew buildup.  Fabric is "wash-n-go")

I used leftover latex paint for my shower curtain design.  That is doing good so far.  But for the accent, I used silver metallic craft paint.  I let dry for about 24 hours and hung it for use.

NOW, every time  we shower, there are streaks of that silver craft paint from where the water seeped through the fabric.  I worked so hard on that shower curtain, and it turned out great, and now I'm heart broken that it's being ruined.

Should I have heat set the craft paint?  What did I do wrong?Huh 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Earthtones,

is a Dremel a Dremel, or are there different voltages or something else, like with drills?

Newbie here, and power tool chick!

I have a Mikita drill, a B&D circular saw, a DeWalt spiral saw, and a tool box that's as heavy as I am.  I once had a B&D plunge router that I sold to a co-worker 'cause I didn't know what I would use it for.  Once I sold it, I realized how badly I needed it.

My wish list includes a jig saw, a recip saw and a Dremel!
