2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Oh anthropologie!!! Sexy cardi! must make! on: June 03, 2008 10:22:04 PM
C'mon, I know you've all had a similar experience. You're looking at the anthropologie website, just admiring all the sexy sexy clothing, the simple design, the absolute beauty, and then you see it. It's that one garment that you can't afford, but Desperately need! I met that garment the other night, her name is the pinwheel cardigan.

Please help a sister out. I'm not sure what to call those lovely little spheres of pleats. How am I ever to recreate them? The patches? No biggy. Me and patches go way back. But I think my life depends on learning how to make those beautiful little "pinwheels"

Thank you so much!!!

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Inkjet printer + Iron on stabilizer+ Fabric = on: May 18, 2008 05:19:14 PM
Ok so, I dunno if anyone knew this but....

Fabric CAN be printed on with an inkjet printer. Just cut a piece of fabric and stabilizer into the shape of typical printer paper, iron the stabilizer on, and run it through the printer like paper


Voila! You have your very own patch. No iron on transfer paper needed! You can buy a product called " bubble jet set" to make the printing more permanent, but if you're printing it out to use as a patch on a bag or such, it probably isnt necessary.

Honestly?


F*** Amercan Apparel. Great job on the skirt!!! I don't need some gimmicky company telling me whats cool to wear, or trying to get me to buy their overpriced crap by advertising pornographic waifs.


And that's why I love craftster  Grin
6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: What to do with tofu? on: April 13, 2008 04:10:48 PM
One word.

Miso.

Miso paste makes anything thats being baked amazing!!! The darker the miso the better the flavor! I always add it towards the last 20 minutes or so as to keep all that great flavor intact.

Heres my version of an Asian baked tofu:

I take soy sauce, Rice vinegar, Chinese cooking wine, brown sugar, fresh ginger and sometimes a sprinkle of cumin or cinnamon and boil it in a small sauce pan. After it is at a light boil, I drop in my Thawed tofu (I always freeze) and let it sit for a few minutes (only a few!) afterwards, put the tofu and liquid into an airtight container and shake it like you hate it.

Cut tofu into bout 1/2 inch slabs or get fancy and make triangles! Or hexagons! and lay flat on a greased baking sheet and put into a 350 degree oven. Let cook about 20 minutes or so? and flip. after another 15-20 minutes, I take the tofu out, and spread a light layer of miso on one side, pop it back in, bake until slightly crispy, and then turn and do the other side.

Your tastebuds will thank you!

10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Rice Milk??????? Advice needed on: May 15, 2007 02:45:48 PM
I am looking into alternatives to milk as I'm still making progress into being full vegan. Some websites vouched for soy, while still others proclaimed that soy milk was harsh on the stomach.
Another website claimed rice milk was an excellent choice, but lacking in any nutrients or health benefits.

Then I found a website that touted the claim that to drink rice milk is essentially to drink "starchy water" and you can make your own.

The recipe they provided was to boil 2 cups rice to 10 cups water, adding sweetener or vanilla as desired. Being that milk alternatives are costly, has anyone tried making their own rice milk? or known anyone who has made rice milk?
