I didn't manage to get any crafting done this week (been doing fitness research, and got to read a new book by a favorite author), and my next planned project is another dog coat.  I'm planning on making some skorts to exercise in (I live in skirts, but I have to wear shorts underneath to remain comfortable when I walk with the neighbors) soon, so that might work for my clothing board post, especially since my daughter doesn't seem to want me to take a picture of the dress or the shirt I made her for camp. Or the swimsuit. Or the cover up. Or the swim shorts.  Sad  And what, may I ask, is the purpose of making a whole bunch of stuff for her if I don't get to post it on craftster??  Wink
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Dog coats for my allergy ridden pug on: September 15, 2010 12:04:52 PM
It took Sam a while to get used to wearing the coats, I admit.  I'm sorry one of your pugs has allergies, too, tmurray.  And I heard this year was bad for fleas, too.

Here's a picture of the most recent one (reconned from one of my husband's old shirts): 

I got a little smarter, and put a double layer of fabric for the front (chest area). I'm also using button down shirts because his last coat caused a large scab by his neck, so I'm thinking he might be allergic to whatever metal they use for the zipper pull, too. Unfortunately, I just noticed today that he's managed to scratch through both layers this morning, so I'll be making another one soon. 
14  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Joann's Craft For A Cause on: September 08, 2010 05:49:53 AM
I'm a little disappointed that they require a copy of the receipt (as I was hoping to use some stash stuff). If the fabric actually says something about being produced for Joann's stores, I think they ought to accept it.

It is a pretty awesome contest though!  I'll have to see if I can find a charity to craft for.
15  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Katy Perry cupcake bra on: September 07, 2010 08:46:52 PM
You're welcome! I don't always remember to check the list at the bottom, and sometimes people are annoyingly vague about it (probably for this exact reason, actually).  Wink  I certainly wouldn't have guessed either ingredient if it hadn't been listed on etsy. It does make me look at spackle in a new light though.  Smiley

If you look at esty, she's got a list of things she used:  polyester cotton blend bra, expanding foam, lightweight spackle, acrylic paint, glitter, real sprinkles, enamel, plastic cherry

I'm thinking the cupcake part is expanding foam (spray foam), and the icing is spackle that's piped on. 

I'm not excited by the look, personally, but I wish you luck in making it!
17  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Homemade Soda : Ginger Beer on: September 07, 2010 03:30:41 PM
Interesting! I'd previously only seen recipes for ginger syrup that you added to carbonated water.  I'm wondering if the yeast carbonation works the same way as regular carbonation (I've read that carbonated beverages leech calcium from your body).

I don't know about other flavors. It might be worth trying in a small batch. You're cooking the juice anyway, so you should be killing any bacteria that might make it go bad. Whether it will ferment, though, is another question.

Any idea what the lemon juice is in the recipe for? Keeping it from going brown? Tartness? Something else?

Thanks for the link, tcmatteson!  When I run out of sidewalk chalk,  I'm going to try it!

Ooh, homemade chalk! That sounds interesting. My kids love chalk! I'd love to see a recipe, if you can share it.
