okay, I've seen all the record bowls and things and new how to soften and manipulate records but I never thought of this! YOU ARE BRILLIANT! you are officially my hero of the day Cheesy
Sweet! Do I get a cape or something?  Grin

Glad you all like the idea.  Smiley

If you can make a cape out of LPs, I'll probably have to retire from crafting.  Tongue

i wouldn't suggest using 78s, i melted a 45 from the 70s once and since it was a different vinyl it burned instead of melting!

I think 78s may be some kind of lacquer.  I've melted one in the oven before, but it was MUCH harder than an LP.  They don't cut as cleanly either.

thanks for all the help with the how-to!  Does anyone know how old 78s would respond to these technique?  They seem more brittle and are thicker, too.

Such cute tawashis and washcloth!  Whenever I see those I think "maybe I should try to learn how to crochet or knit" and this is making that especially tempting.

In other news, I finally shipped to mimiw today and realized that means that I'm going to receive something awesome in the mail here pretty quickly!  I always forget that "swap" means I'm going to get some wonderful handmade thing(s) myself!  So I'll be able to post here maybe early next week!  YEY!  Mimiw will have to wait a little longer as hers went parcel post.

I think it's wonderful that you take the time to help the less fortunate, many of us who can, don't! Every small bit counts! If we all took the time to make or do something for other beings, the world would be a much better place.

 Bravo!

Thank you, I agree and wish that I did more - luckily this particular project lit a fire under me and because I'd involved someone else the fire wasn't allowed to die out.  I admit that I'm getting a little uncomfortable with all the praise - I guess I didn't think it through when I posted.  Undecided

Did you see the part about getting the hot hunk that is The ManFlesh to craft with me?  Pretty self-indulgent, that.
Well, naturally I caught the bit about the ManFlesh, but it left me at an absolute loss for words. That's probably what got me tingly in the first place  Wink
(face or no face, that's a very sexy neck)
Who knew that the right fella sitting at your sewing machine was such a turn-on?  Damn.  Shocked

whew!  I shipped mimiw's package this morning and sent her, Superhooker and SevsOnlyGirl the DC#!  Unfortunately, I had to send Parcel Post and it's going diagonally pretty much clear across the country so it's going to be awhile before she gets it.  Perhaps the extra dough for first class would have been worth takign a few days off my Swap Anxiety, but a buck is a buck, right?

Dang Girl,
I'm all tingly... you have just got it all going on here! Fabulous recycle project for a special cause. I was just hearing on NPR that because of the shitty economy and foreclosures people can no longer take care of their pets and the shelters are filling up; it's so heartbreaking  Cry I can totally believe that seeing a homeless animal on one of these lovely creations would make it much more likely to be adopted. I'm tempted just imagining it!
I'll be clicking on that link you provided and see what's going on locally. It's about time I did something in my sewing studio that wasn't completely self-indulgent.
Rock on, T
 Kiss

Golly! I really wasn't expecting or seeking all this praise, I just wanted to spread awareness and brag on my man.  Did you see the part about getting the hot hunk that is The ManFlesh to craft with me?  Pretty self-indulgent, that. 

I have heard how the forclosures due to the subprime disaster are leading to abandoned animals; people just leaving them behind!  It's illegal in my state, but if you're willing to abondon a creature that depends on you chances are you're willing to break that particular law.

Oo!  This is a great use of LPs! They look like LPs and look like bookends that work. Put me in the "how'd you bend them?" line, please!
