1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Exquisite corpse scarf on: July 19, 2016 01:46:25 AM
Have you played the parlor game Exquisite Corpse? Each person adds a line to a story without seeing what came before, and then the story is read aloud. In knitting, that looks like each participant knitting a swatch length portion of a scarf and then mailing it along, until it is scarf length and sent back to the first person. I was sent one, and I am looking for someone to send it to next. It isn't fancy (going out into the world indefinitely is a bit different than an organized swap) but I would like to pass it along. Please let me know if you are interested!

This is a really good idea! I realized yesterday my Mom doesn't have any lighters or matches in her junk drawer and I want to fix that. Something like this but more compact will be a way better gift than lighters.

I love the proportions of the hand and the planter.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Revamped Schoolhouse Stool on: January 25, 2014 12:38:55 PM


Space is super valuable in my 8' yurt, so I have been trying to replace my wooden desk chair with something  less bulky. I was hunting around the side yard for aluminum or steel tubing to rivet or weld into a chair when I found a school stool! I updated it with spray paint and leather. Sanding off the rust took the longest. I am really pleased with the goat leather seat cover. I bought a goat skin from PeggySueAlso on etsy for a different project, and there happened to be loads left over. I used the 3m spray adhesive to attach it to the plastic seat, then used marine goop on the underside to attach the free edge. Since this was a scrap, it was a little shy of the correct dimension in some areas, so I used clothespins to hold the leather in place while the glue dried.

Here is a before and after of sorts, with our welding stool on the left and my desk stool on the right.

Thanks everyone! No one I showed it to in person was as excited as usual, so it's nice to hear from Craftster.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pocket Belt from Men's Shirt on: August 09, 2013 05:48:03 PM
I wear skirts nearly exclusively (if I have to wear jeans or pants for an activity, I have to buy or borrow a pair) but I spent a couple of days in jeans recently and was reminded of how freeing pockets are. I wanted to make a pocket belt I could wear with my day-to day clothes (I already have a tattered fairy style pocket belt for working at fairs), and here it is.



I'm an artist but sewing is not one of my strengths! Still, I thought the way I cut apart this shirt was pretty ideal, so I'll pass it on.



This is the outside layer of the belt. I cut up the front of a fairly thick, wool, men's shirt to make a belt with two integrated triangle pockets. Then I cut a matching inner layer from the sleeves. I'd already looted two of the buttons for a kindle cover, so I had to relocate these three buttons from the middle to the end. Each side of the front was 26", so I think if you have up to a 50" waist a repurposed shirt front will work for you, as long as you only want one button (mine has three). I don't know my measurement where the belt hits, but my waist and hips are 28" and 38" and I cut off a total of 9" and have a 7-8" overlap.

I think this forest green is just perfect, but working on it for four hours made me really want to start a bigger, better, sillier rainbow fairy belt.

I love the texture on the curse compendium! I've never seen that before.

Rad Stamps, letterboxing is jthe same idea as geocaching except that the clues are verbal instead of coordinates, and instead of prizes you use the letterbox's stamp in your logbook and your signature stamp in its. Also letterboxers get frustrated by geocachers because they are so good at finding hidden tupperware that they find letterboxes without the clue, and sometimes think the stamp is a prize and take it. The website I use to find local clues is http://www.atlasquest.com/
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: How much would you pay for a stall? on: May 14, 2013 10:27:25 PM

Let me just say I am the typical American who is totally thrown off by prices listed in other currencies besides the US dollar.  Is it possible for members who reside outside the US to note the US dollar equvalent or exchange when posting?  Can you tell I am new to this board?  LOL
I'm the same with some currencies- yuan, rupees- but in the Anglosphere I get cocky and think I know exchange rates because I learned them years ago. 2 Canadian dollars to the dollar! Two dollars to the pound! Nope! But it's convenient that the USD is so weak right now because it's almost spot on Canadian and Australian.
