341  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cloth, Paper, Scissors on: May 30, 2006 02:48:00 PM
Many thanks for telling us about this magazine.  The amazing assemblage pieces of their featured artist Michael deMeng can be seen on his website http://www.michaeldemeng.com - they gave me a million new ideas for projects!

This looks super - I have done a similar thing with tiny fabric scraps ironed onto an adhesive backing - Vilene, Staflex, whatever - and then machine and hand emboidered.  Great way to use up bright little bits which I didn't want to throw away!

Once your paper has dried, you can iron it just like fabric, which with some paints and dyes helps to set the colour more permanently too.  Use the "Silk" setting if you are nervous about this, but I have used a very hot iron too without problems - just don't forget it!  But why not just colour print the paper from your PC printer?

Much too late for me to make a green thing for the last day of May - only joined Craftster today - so perhaps I should start the pink creation for June already?  Only trouble is that although I have loads of pink fabrics, papers, paint etc, I have no idea what to make - never usually work in this colour, because it doesn't "speak" to me - any ideas?  And I can't draw, so let's stick to textile things!

The major UK newspaper, The Guardian, just featured your site in an article today, so you might get several other new UK members joining up!
346  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you use to fill a pincushion? on: May 30, 2006 07:45:20 AM
A very cheap option is just to use the little tiny scraps of fabric you would otherwise throw away - most quilters or clothing makers have loads of these.  Not quite the best I know, but I did this on a pincushion I made almost 10 years ago when I had nothing else to hand, and it is still looking good and in daily use.
347  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Putting together some craft kits...need your expertise! on: May 30, 2006 07:31:52 AM
A really fun idea for a small patchwork/quilting project is to get a bagful of assorted scraps and a pot of powder dye in a shade you like, then dye ALL the fabrics in the same dye - they will come out various shades of whatever colour you chose, depending on fibre content and the original pattern printed on them.  They make great projects all sewn together artistically, but take a bit more fabric than you think, to allow for shrnkage and also so you can chuck out any that don't fit well with the others.  Have fun!

Two comments:  a computer guru told me that the ultimate weapon with a troublesome PC is to whisper "landfill" into the vent at the back - maybe this works on sewing machines too?  And there ARE serious saints for crafters - I know St Luke is the patron of painters, does anyone know who the others are?

That is a glorious skein - now what do you plan to DO with it?  Or am I asking an awkward question? Cheesy
