7301  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Owl Swap Round 4 Gallery! on: June 18, 2007 06:30:10 PM
daiconharuko- Your package from pandorascraftbox is fantastic! I love the stitching on the bag, and the images on the pins. And all of the owls on the owl board are so cute!

Ezri_b- I love the owl apron- the owl pockets are great! Very clever martyx9! The potholder and pincushion are just adorable. And, the stuffie looks like it is related to the stuffie that I got from christinacoghill!

I have come across more owl items that Id like to make- I might have to join in the next round if there is oneof course I could just make all of the stuff and keep it for myself! Grin

I might have to head out to the hardware store and pick up  a few tiles. This could make a seriously awesome, easy and relatively inexpensive gift. I have everything I need except for the tiles!

My coloring skills aren't nearly as good as yours though! I'll have to work around that little problem  Wink

Ooooh! Very nice! I'd like to try this so I'm also curious about which type of fixative you should use. Some fixatives make inks run, and it'd be a shame to have your work smear.

How big is it? Did you treat the tile at all before you stamped it? It looks like one of those unglazed ones.

And the image is great...it takes me back to a visit not so long ago...
7304  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: 73 Train Tickets on: June 17, 2007 07:57:54 AM
Hmmmm...I'd swear I posted to this the other night...probably forgot to actually hit the "post" button...

In any case, now that you've made your awesome bag, this might not apply anymore. But, you did say you still had some tickets left...

This link is for a "flexi-cube" made out of train tickets...and I'm jealous because I don't have any tickets like these and can't make one like it...

LOL, craftADDchick!  Cheesy You reward yourself with your butterfly square and I will reward myself with the hearts square! We deserve it  Grin

Yay! Okay, as soon as I get off the computer, I'll get to work on finishing November!

I used Aunt Lydia's "Fashion Crochet Thread" (100% Mercerized Cotton), Size 3.

And, I bet it would have worked out just as well, if not better, if I had made it wider on longer and folded it in half. Good thinking!

I want to make one for myself, so I might try your suggestion! I was just trying out a pattern from the book, so I just made a swatch, originally. Hmmmm...now I'm even thinking I could add a flap to cover the zipper...I have plenty of the thread and I have extra fabric...all I need is a zipper...hmmmm...

Here I am, with no papers to grade and nothing extremely pressing to work on. So, I actually have time to continue my November Easy square. And then I'm jumping ahead to do the butterfly square as a reward to myself.

Reward for only completing 2 squares, you say? Why not? Or , maybe it could be an "I-made-it-through-a-school-year-with-one-of-the-worst-groups-of-8th-graders-I've-ever-had" reward.

Less expensive than some of my usual rewards (books, CDs, craft supplies) and much less fattening than some others (chocolate, ice cream, cookies...). So maybe it could even be a reward for avoiding these other rewards!

And I know some of you are saying- "Whatever! Just get your darn squares done!"
7308  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Pop Tab dress with straps on: June 17, 2007 05:29:17 AM
This is amazing! I would love to make something with pop tabs and this is inspiring!

I was just at a party yesterday and the beers and sodas were being consumed at a rapid pace. I actually started to reach for a blue tab on a can of Coors Light (I think), but stopped myself...it would become an obsession...

Maybe I'll send an e-mail out to the family to start saving their tabs for me...

What do you do about the sometimes sharp/jagged bits that appear when the tab is removed from the can?
7309  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Typographic Pop Up Book on: June 17, 2007 05:24:57 AM
This is a fantastic piece of work! You seem to have an excellent eye for graphics- the boldness of it all works very well!

I love the pull tab on the cover- it grabbed me right from the start and made me want to keep looking! And, the Contents page is slick! Then, the chapter dividers- love them- and I love how they are not as wide as a full page- it makes it than much more interesting.

I really want to hold the completed book in my hands and fully explore it! If you don't get an A on your project, send it to me and I will re-grade it for you Wink

Your attention to detail is impressive. And, while I like the story, what you did with it just makes it that mych better!

Very, very, very well done and inspiring! Now I want to go and dig out all of my book-making books and have a go...
7310  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Crocheted Zipper Pouch on: June 16, 2007 08:02:54 PM
Thanks for the compliments, everyone! Since I gave it away as a gift, I'll have to choose another pattern to try from the book and then make one for myself!

And elizabeth, it really wasn't too hard. The hardest part was trying to keep the crochet piece flat while I sewed it onto the fabric. I used a lot of pins...and many curse words...and a few band-aids...  Grin
