For those who were asking, I found a similar hat pattern here:

I've had it bookmarked for months... Thanks for the inspiration to get off my duff and finish  Grin

 Shocked Those rock on so many, many levels!

I have never seen anything like this! 

We are potty training, but our dipes still fit.  I have some underware made up, but DD is going through a "I'm not pooping... grunt..." phase (grrr she's been pooping in the potty for months, what happened?)...  and, well, I hate having to deal with poop and underware. 

Anyway, this is PERFECT!  I'm about to google like a mad woman, and I can't wait for the tute  Grin  (I think I have it figured out- basically like a cloth diaper with big lycra wings and snaps?)

and the flames... love me some flames

**ok, I googled. Nothing.  Did you deconstruct a pull-up? These are pretty revolutionary when it comes to trainers  Smiley  You should seriously consider selling the pattern.
24  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Jamie.... bringin' sexy back on: October 05, 2007 08:11:04 AM
I love that doll!  Sooooooo sexy!  Especially the stash  Grin  Have you sent THE JAMIE HYNEMAN a picture yet? 
I'd love to see these pics on the show-- you know they would, if only us craftsters could think of a myth to bust dealing with yarn or crochet....
Any ideas?

Melladh-- that was an excellent description!

I'm thinking thick vinyl from the upholstry section and.... aquarium sealer? but it would have to be underwater when you filled???

Or, seal it while dry and empty.  Dry, then inject it with a gel-like substance? that starts out watery then thickens?.....

To get rid of chlorine smell in your hair and bathing suit, just rinse with diluted baking soda (say 1/4 cup to a gallon of water, which will do your hair & suit).  Use a cup to pour it on your hair, let it set for a minute, and rinse-- no need to shampoo after, either! Soak your suit in the leftover and rinse with water.  It neutralizes the chlorine.

My favorite bath secret is Epsoms salt, with or without fragrance, in a nice hot bath.  Skin gets soooo soft!
27  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Ideas for a burning witch costume? on: September 16, 2007 03:30:41 PM
First thought, I was kind of sqeemish (I'm Pagan) then thought about it....

I think it is a very unique and thought provoking idea!  I think fire/tissue/fan/lighting  might make it a cheesy looking costume (not the way I would go)-- But the dry ice idea is brilliant!  Just a smoldering hem... or a smoldering post... it could get some really serious discussion started.  Depends on where you would wear it, though.  I think if you went for a too cheesy look, it could be really offensive (not for school, places of business).

It might be easier to have a lined pocket (or several) for the dry ice-- like on the OUTSIDE of whatever you are wearing.  But, I don't know how safe dry ice or fog juice would be if it got on you, fell on the dance floor, or gets on your dog.
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: nursing/breastfeeding pads. on: August 21, 2007 05:59:24 PM
ok , so a lot of great advice here. .. now to just find time to sew ....

i made the mistake of putting this project off, and then oneday .. i actualy gave birth.  and now i dont have time to sew when ever i want. 

I know how you feel!

When you are in this position, just fold up a wash cloth (microfiber sounds awesome).  In a couple of months, you won't be leaking, so it's not really worth too much time.

For the nursing blanket:  Craftster search "hooter hiders"  (I don't have much time right now, but that's the title)...  Cotton is awesome, though I never tried one.  But, my kid was born in August -HOT- and didn't want to be covered.  I started wearing a tank top under my shirt and would *go over the top of the tank and under the t-shirt* Worked(s) for us, didn't feel like she was smothering.  Once I got the hang of it, I don't even show my skin, and kinda glad we don't have a blankie to lug around.

mylovelybabybump and notverytalented are BOTH right!  Cloth does get wet fast, you have to change them often.  And the disposables lump together and just itch.  But, there is a happy medium.

I used freebie dipsosables (you'll get a million samples) on the rare occasions that I would really be "afraid" to leak (like out somewhere nice for hours).  Sometimes I would line them with a small cloth pad (I used a CD as a template for smaller pads that wouldn't roll around and kept the platic ones flatter).  But yeah, I've even leaked through all of that.

The rest of the time, I would just change the cloth pads as soon as it got wet.  I kept a little plastic bag with me and plenty of dry ones to switch out.  And when the babe was nursing, I'd put that side's pad (or pads) over to the other side to catch the overflow.  Once you practice, you can be very discreet about changing the pads... but you do have to change cloth pretty often (well, I did anyway). 

Best advice for not being lumpy and leaky-- wear thick bras.  Motherhood & Maternity have some very nice ones and the pads don't lup through.

And ditto everything javamama said
