21  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / upholstery-type fabric on: July 12, 2007 09:02:09 PM
I'm not sure what to do with this fabric besides upholster a couch, which I don't plan on doing anytime soon.

the right side looks like this:

Not true color, it's much bluer. And it's really fuzzy soft.

The wrong side looks like this:

and feels like rubber.

The fabric is fairly stiff so I was thinking maybe a purse(lined of course). But what do you guys think? any other ideas?
22  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Quentin Tarantino swap? on: July 09, 2007 03:41:11 PM
I love Tarantino movies and I'm sure there are other fans on here.

We could send our partners crafts based on their favorite.

I can't organize but if anyone is interestedf in doing so I think it would be loads of fun.

I was making duct tape roses and my mommy liked them and thought they would look cool as a pen. So I made her one. ^_^

24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a bunch of t-shirt recons. Picture heavy on: June 20, 2007 01:36:29 PM
Unfortunately I don't have before pics for any of these, but here they are. ^__^

This shirt was too small and waaaaay too short.

So I put panels in the sides.

And a band at the bottom. White tummy didn't want to be shown so it was covered by purple. XD

This was a ginormous Avenue Q shirt. I looove it now though. I'm thinking of adding straps but I'm not sure. I kinda like the tubeyness.

Added collar and buttons of a nice shirt to a tshirt. Ew chin and neck.

This used to be a tiiiiny kid's top. I took the darker purple long sleeves off aaaaand. . .

Put them in the sides as panels. By then it was too big. XD So I put in some lacing and I really like the bunchyness of the sides.

So yeah. I'm happy with those. ^_^

25  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Banana oatmeal cookies on: June 13, 2007 02:14:35 PM
I just made these cookies for the first time and they turned out great. They're not the most visually appealing, but they're quite tasty.

The recipe is:

3 very  ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups oats
1/3 vegetable oil
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
some cinnamon. Put in as little or as much as you want.

Then cook for 20 minutes at 335 degrees. Super easy.

27  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / California in a box on: June 11, 2007 08:14:07 PM
Okay, I'm totally copying jenautomatica who's making Michigan in a box. Just wanted to give her credit. XD

My best friend just moved to Utah from California and he misses it A LOT. So I want to send him a gift to cheer him up, but I'm not sure what.

I live(and he used to live T___T) pretty close to LA, so I want to include some hollywood-type stuff in there, but I don't know what to use that won't be too horribly expensive. I'm kinda low on cash. I would definitely prefer to make stuff for him than buy it.
28  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / black tulle on: June 11, 2007 07:50:07 PM
I randomly found this bolt of black tulle in my house. It's quite a bit, several yards I'm sure.

What's something easy that I could do with it?

I thought about making a tutu but I think that would be too difficult.
29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Purple fishy for my friend's birthday on: June 10, 2007 10:18:44 AM
My friend Missie's birthday is coming soon. She loves fishies, and she loves purple. So I'm hoping she'll love this purple fishy. ^___^

Sorry for crappy webcam quality and lame smile/grimace.
30  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Beautiful stained glass by my father on: June 07, 2007 06:32:15 PM
My dad made this ages ago, but I think it's so beautiful that I have to show it off.

He's very talented with stained glass.

Sorry for the crappy picture, it doesn't do the window justice.
