21  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Salem Crafters 2008 on: January 28, 2008 03:33:04 PM
Hey Guys,

I looked at the old Salem crafters thread, but it's mostly stuff from 2006, so what do you say we start a new thread for the new year?

I just moved to Salem from Portland...

So, is there a Salem Church of Craft still? I am very spoiled from all the crafty happenings going on in Portland...

23  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Felted Burger Soap - With Tutorial on: June 07, 2005 03:41:39 PM

I felted some soap today.  After two bars, I got a brilliant idea to felt some soap to look like a hamburger.  Hee hee.  I love burger crafts.

I used some soap that I made that was too ugly to leave uncovered.

To felt soap:

Use wool roving and wrap it around your soap, making sure all sides are covered.  If there are any thin parts where your soap is showing through, add more roving.  Decorate with contrasting roving, if desired.

Drip hot water over the roving-wrapped soap.  Be gentle and continue to drip water (and squeeze gently if you want) until the wool is saturated.

The wool will begin to adhere to the soap, and shrink to fit around the soap.  It will be wrinkly.

Continue to wet soap with hot water, and rub the soap gently on all sides.  Dunk in hot water, and continue for about 5-10 minutes.

When the wool has lost most of its wrinkly-ness and is pretty snug to the soap, rinse it under cold water.  You will feel it begin to lose its slickness and the wool will contract a little bit.

Squeeze out excess water and suds, pat dry, and there you go.
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hat, Scarf & Flower Pin Set on: January 17, 2005 08:29:49 AM
http://i.xanga.com/yardenxanthe/t/creamhatscarf.jpg
I made several scarves (good on my freqent plane trips), before Christmas, but I didn't get around to finishing them (tucking in all the loose threads, etc) in time to give them as gifts. I got this set done the other night.

The yarn is just some basic cream-colored chunky acrylic (possibly Bernat).  I used some novelty yarn for the edges of these, and the stuff is funny because it has puffs of fuzz about every six inches or so on the yarn, so it makes a very non-uniform sketchy kind of puffage that is sort of quirky.

This scarf is three or four inches wide, and about six feet long or so.

The hat is just single crochet in a spiral (increasing until it's about the width you want -- I just do it by feel). and then double-crochet until the hat's as long as I want.  Pretty specific directions, huh?  The scarf is all double crochet about eight or ten stitches wide.

I also made a flower pin with a fuzzy center that you could leave pinned on the hat (as shown in the first pic) or you could pin somewhere else.

I didn't have this one finished in time to give to anyone for Christmas.

Hey Cleveland area craftsters!

I got a part-time job with a crafty tv show "The Creative Life" with Cheryl Fall, on PBS.

The show started this June (2004) and has slowly been picked up by more and more PBS stations.  Currently, your local PBS affiliate, WVIZ, doesn't carry the show.

If you are interested in getting the show, contact WVIZs programming director to ask them to pick it up.

or http://wviz.org/feedback.asp


Also, if you have any feedback about the show, I will pass it on to the producers!  They want to hear what their 20, 30, and 40-something crafters have to say.

Some great holiday shows are coming up, and you can look at projects and instructions for previous shows on the Creative Life website as well.
