1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / New, Confused, and Sleepy. on: July 08, 2006 10:09:43 PM
So I'm kinda new to crafter and new to DIY. I've made wallets made out of electrical tape, braceletes, necklaces, and other small things like that. But I haven't made any clothing yet. Oh and I also want to make some purses.

I went to Joann's Fabrics today and bought some fabric. 1 yard of a comic looking fabric and the words are in French. I fell in love with it immediatly. 2 yards of a red and white flower design and it says "Good Morning" on one side and "Sweet Dreams" on the other side. Oh and I also bought a little more than 2 yards of this awesome Mexcio City collage fabric.

I have no idea what to do with the fabric. It was a impulse buy. I've looked throught tutorials already and I still have no idea what to make that easy because i've never made any clothes before. Help! Thanks!  Grin

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I've got a few cooking tips :) on: June 26, 2006 05:27:45 PM
Get the most juice out of your lemons:
- before you cut the lemon, roll it on a counter or hard surface kind of hard for a minute or so. This gets those little bubbles inside the lemon to pop and you get more juice. Just don't press too hard or you'll smash the lemon.

Remove the skin from Almonds:
- soak the almonds in hot water for 15 - 20 minutes.

Keep celery fresh for longer
- wrap the celery in aluminum foil and place it in the refridgerator.

Avoid crying when you chop oinions:
- To avoid crying, cut the onions into 2 parts and soak them in water for 15 minutes.

Good egg, bad egg?:
- To determine whether an egg is fresh, put it in a pan of cool, salted water, if it sinks then it is fresh, if it floats to the surface, throw it away.

No more tupperware stains:
- Spray your tupperware with non-stick cooking spray before adding any tomato based soups or sauces and there won't be any stains.

Rice Krispies tip:
- Run your hands under cold water before pressing Rice Krispies treats in the pan and the marshmallow won't stick to your fingers.

hope this helps everyone! Grin
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stenciling Tip on: June 17, 2006 10:40:29 AM
I don't know if this will help anyone, but....

Instead of cardstock, I use poster board for the base of my stencil. It's a lot cheaper and you can get it in bulk. Plus, I think it's thicker than cardstock, and still easy to cut through. I hope this helps someone!

Oh yeah... and if you all could post some of your stenciling tips, that'd be great!
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / i'm new and i have a few questions for you kind people... on: June 10, 2006 10:12:06 PM
Hello! I saw a link to this site and saw some pretty cool things on here. I have a few questions though...

1. How do I make those cool t-shirts like some people on here do? (i think it's screen printing or something...)

2. How long would it take me to make a t-shirt?

3. What supplies do I need?

4. About how much would I have to spend on making a t-shirt.

Thanks for all of you help!  Cheesy
