Hey! I'm looking to make a cheap "sofa". My plans are to make a large cylinder out of fabric, and then make two "L" shaped sides, and sew it together. Now my original plan was to make it into a sort of beanbag couch, but I kept hearing things like "packing peanuts will eventually crush, and you will have to keep putting more in." So I was thinking, could one use little strips of polar fleece as stuffing? I'd assume it's cheaper, you can just ask people for their extra polar fleece. Has anyone ever used polar fleece as a stuffing for pillows/cushions? Thanks a lot!
Hey! I think it would be very fun to make some fused glass pendants and what-not, but I don't have access to a kiln...is there anything I could do? Is the oven a possibility? Or anything else? Thanks a lot!
Hey, I found these stencils, and then I found out they were from an old blowpen kit I had from 6 years ago, haha. Does anyone know if you can use blow pens on textiles? I thought it would be a lot cheaper, 'cause I have a kit with all the colors anyways.
Hey again gals 'n' guys! I have some fancy new PLAIN WHITE WAL-MART SLIP-ONS! Yeah! Well I have some amazing lumberjack plaid, it's almost a fleece. Does anyone know how I could get the shape of the fabric unfolded, without taking off the whole top? (I mean, I'm gunna cut the fabric off, but I need to leave some room to sew the plaid onto) Anyone know the shape, or have a pattern for it? Thanks!
Howdy! So today I picked up some good smelling scents(Green tea and Sandalwood, I thought they smelt more like a "cologne" than the others did. lol) but then I decided I wanted some vanilla scent in it. I tried one of the scents there, I liked it, but didn't have any more money. So what I'm wondering is, is there any way to use Vanilla Extract(like the cooking variety, or what-not) for a cologne/perfume, or should I just save up some more money? Thanks a lot!
Alrighty, I've wanted one of those knitted beanies with a brim on them, but, I can't seem to find one, that someone else doesn't have. So, could anyone lead me to a pattern of one? Is there one? Also, my mom's knitting skills are kinda limited(yes, my moms, what can I say, I'm no good, I'm moral support), so a simple-ish pattern would be great. Well thanks for the help!
On a side note, I'm new, and would like to say hi to everyone. On topic, does anyone know how if it's possible to remove embroidery on hats, easily? There are those flat rimmed hats(specifically with the stereotype "gangster") that have the "NY" or "A" or any random letter embroidered to the front. But I think there is a layer of fabric on the inside, covering the embroidery? Anyways, has anyone tried this, or does anyone have any assumptions or tips? Thanks a bunch!
