6891  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: TUTORIAL: Singlet Style Shopping Bag (like the plastic shopping bag) on: June 25, 2007 02:14:50 PM
You know, a second pocket or pouch just for receipts might not be a bad idea (particularly a clear one)--just to make it really clear that you're on the up-and-up, and so you can produce the receipts really quickly if someone asks.  Or making a mesh or clear vinyl tote-style bag for non-grocery shopping--maybe based on the round-handled plastic shopping bags they use in clothing stores.

This is a good idea! Someone above mentioned using the "make your own fabric from plastic bags" tutorial- I wonder if it would work as well with clear bags? I was planning to make a pouch to keep my bags in,  so maybe I could clip a clear "receipt pouch" to that. I don't know if I have any clear bags, though...Definitely worth looking into...

Here's the pic of my Book Purse Kit from balletfreak! She sent along a book, funky fabric and a snazzy black ribbon. It also came with a lovely card, and a great little booklet of hand-written and drawn instructions. As soon as I finish reading the book Wink , I'll be making the purse!



Thanks, balletfreak! I love it!

I bought some reusable bags from the chain grocery store that I usually shop at and for the first month that I used them, they still looked pretty new. The cashiers always wanted to ring them up as a new purchase!

I've found that I need to make an effort to get them to put stuff in my bags. If I just put them on the belt, the cashier pushes them aside and the bagger ignores them. Usually not a problem, but if I'm not paying attention, half my order is already bagged in plastic. Once, when this happened, I asked the bagger to put my items in my own bags- she took the items she had already bagged, plastic bag and all, and stuffed them into the bags.

*sigh* Some people just don't get it...

Yes, it's a bit awkward with the meter and rhyme scheme, but it's early and I haven't had any coffee yet! And I tried to include every craft, but I just couldn't manage it (so don't be offended- you are there in spirit!). Wink

I'll post my pics on Monday, after the gallery gets started.
6896  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: 6/9/07 - Craftster got a face lift! on: June 23, 2007 11:14:16 AM
I couldn't figure out why I was still seeing the dots...and then I dusted off the screen...

And, now that I've had a chance to cruise the site more, I love it even more (although I still wish I could organize my bookmarks better Wink )!

I really like how clean the home page is, and the new graphic icons are great too! I haven't encountered any glitches that I didn't already have (but I think those are just computer issues, not site issues- sometimes when I hit back to go to "New Replies to Your Posts" it either gets rid of all of the posts, or shows only one, or something like that. When I hit refresh, it's all good).

So thanks again for making Craftster such a fun place to visit!
6897  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Fishbones in Fused Glass! on: June 23, 2007 11:05:49 AM
So, this is what happens when the cat gets to the one that was in the fishbowl?  Wink

I like the white on black- looks very pirate-y! Plus, the contrast shows off the bones nicely!
6898  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Mermaid on: June 23, 2007 10:57:46 AM
she is adorable. i think she should deffinatly have arms though! lol when i first saw the picture without reading the title or anything i thought it was a crochet....umm...we ll....male genetal organ (if you get my drift) in awesome colours. i mean that in itself would be pretty awesome but since it's supposed to be a mermaid i think arms might stop certain people from seeing the wrong thing Tongue


I have to agree 100%. And mermaids do have arms, so it makes sense this way,too...
6899  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: What my yr4 class are spinning on: June 23, 2007 06:05:04 AM
This is such a neat idea! And the beauty of it is that each kid can take a turn (or a spin) and not get bored or overwhelmed by the whole project!

How old are yr4 kids? When I saw the title, I was thinking High School, until I saw the multiplication tables Wink

I'll be watching to see the progress!

This is lovely! I think it's so neat how you pulled together so many of the skills that you (and your husband) can do. It brings 'hand crafted' to a whole new level!
