1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Project Thrive- reusable pads for girls on: January 29, 2011 02:40:27 PM
Flannel and terry are both good materials to use - that's what I make my pads out of. You may wish to contact the organizers to make sure recycled materials are okay for the pads.

The other option is that you could make the bags to hold the kits in your sewing club. They could be made out of any material (including recycled clothing) - I emailed Celeste about the sizing, I can't recall for certain but I think she said that 9"x 11" is a good size. They need bags for the kits.

It was great to find this thread. I have about a dozen reusable pads hanging out from a craft show where they didn't sell. Thanks for the info!

This is beautiful. Great job!

You can cut costs even cheaper (although yours are pretty impressive!) by using waxed polyester thread (about $9 for a large spool), and using push pins (if your dad doesn't want to loan out his awl!).
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / nook-y on: February 14, 2010 10:43:37 AM
last year i thought i had a brilliant idea when i started making these quilted scarves. i was prepping for a craft show and was making several of every item at once, although i never fully finished a 'prototype scarf' before starting to make them. i did have a sample with everything completed except for the finishing. when i got to the final stage, the binding, i found the scarf suddenly looked like an oddly-shaped potholder (i actually use one as such - i'll post that later). totally not scarf-y.

so a few months later, i remembered my intention to make a window-seat-blanket/pad so that i could snuggle into my spacious window frame and read. i sewed a bunch of the abandoned "scarves" together, and ta da.



it is a bit bumpy, unfinished, and will have to sit face-down, but at least it makes my nook more nook-y!

It has a personality - a few of my friends have connected with its flea-market-pot-holder-esque vibe. thanks for the comments!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / un-wicker-fied chair on: February 13, 2010 11:31:59 AM


a bit of a crazy looking chair, the seat and back of which I wove using a whole whack of scrap fabric sewed together. it was good to use up old fabric otherwise destined for the garbage, but it turned out much more 70s-lawn-chair looking than i had hoped. the chair frame itself was once covered in wicker. bits of it were snapping off and my co-worker wanted to get rid of it.



it's ugly, but comfortable. doesn't really help my (weak) attempts to have a more aesthetically cohesive, grown-up apartment, but it was an experiment. what can you do?!

This is seriously great - I was looking up sleep masks because I wanted to make some for Christmas and now I am worried mine will be underwhelming.

Kudos!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / woven on: July 28, 2009 07:30:32 PM
I had this yarn in my stash for TOO long (as we all say), and I had this pattern picked out for some time too. I decided to knit it up and it only took two days.





I was very happy with how it turned out (see my smirking face!), although it is still fairly big - my head is pretty average-sized and it is hanging off my head. I also used smaller needles than gauge for the yarn or pattern recommended. I am going to try making another, reducing 20 sts on the back of the hat. I haven't added the I cord yet, but I will.

thanks! i found it easier to work with paper than fabric cover material, and it makes a sharper crease, and than adding lots of glue is always important.
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: First Ever Craft Fair -- am I in over my head? on: April 19, 2009 06:05:54 PM
you are SO going to do fine - you probably already did fine, since it was today...how did it go?!

I had my first fair yesterday, and it went well too!
