1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / adhesive question... metal + leatherette? on: August 27, 2007 10:32:54 PM
Hey guys! I recently bought a bunch of flats at wholesale price and am in dire need of some customization help (otherwise I'd be in possession of 12 pairs of the same shoes...). The flats are made of leatherette and have a tiny bow at the top, which I can tear off easily. I have a couple of ideas for them but I've never altered shoes before and so I'm a little anxious.

What kind of glue can I use for leatherette? Will regular fabric glue from Walmart/Michael's/Hobby Lobby work? Also, I have a fake David Yurman bracelet that broke but can be salvaged as shoe embellishments. Is there a fabric glue that will attach leatherette and metal? Or will I have to hot-gun it?

Any advice would be appreciated!! Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Swimsuit yarn?? on: June 09, 2007 08:39:16 PM
Hey guys! A yarn n00b here... I've seen a lot of knitted swimsuit patterns around the web and I was wondering what yarn I could use to knit a functional swimsuit.  Grin Thanks!
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / College Food Help on: January 28, 2007 07:57:42 PM
Hey guys, I'm a freshman in college and I just wanted some recipe ideas/cooking tips. I have a small, but decent kitchen in my suite, with a full-sized refrigerator, an oven, a microwave, a small stove, and VERY little prep space...

I've cooked a few things so far (chicken alfredo, lemon herb chicken with veggies--internet recipes), but only on special occasions. I can't get myself to cook every night. For one thing, I'm sharing the suite with three other girls and space is a problem (the "kitchen" and the "living room" are actually the same small room, and they like to hang out in the living room area and watch TV). Time is also a problem because I'm interning and taking 19 credits so I'm often on the go.

Um, I've also never cooked before I started college, so I'm still figuring things out; I'm a pretty fast learner and I haven't burned anything yet, but for all practical purposes, I'm still a cooking novice.

I was just wondering if you guys had any tips for me, or some easy, healthy (health is also something I care about) recipes that don't take a lot of time. I can't exactly spend an hour making meals, but eating pasta or cereal for dinner every single night is getting somewhat ridiculous, especially since I have a kitchen.
