ok scartch the pj's --my sewing machine has decied to die on me just around the holidays (great) so i am not sewing 2 sets of pj pants by hand --i was thinking of etching some glasses but i don't know how it is done --- the other idea i had was to buy some plain old cuff liks and personalize the "pretty part" of it --- but the only problem is my uncle is a "chef" so he does not need to wear a suit--HELP

p.s. i really don't know what he does --but i know that he is not a chef --- i am pretty sure he maneges the chefs --i really don't know

You could make him a chef hat out of some cool material. I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to do via hand.
or you could get some scupley clay and buy a knife, fork and spoon, and scupley the ends and then paint them. There is a good example of this on here somewhere, search tetris cutley or something like that.

PERFECT! after many hours of searching the internet and reading this post I figured out what I'm going to make my brothers!! Both of them are (self-proclaimed) chefs so OVEN MITTS IT IS! I know it's probably a no-brainer for most people but I guess I was thinking less practical and more, hmm... I don't even know! But oven mitts are perfect Smiley

What would you make them out of to make them heat-proof? Just regular quilting fabric?

They make an ironing board cover fabric that's quilted and somewhat insulated.  That quilted stuff that's silver on one side.  Anyway, add a couple layers of COTTON batting (polyester will melt) and you should be fine.  Even store-bought mitts will burn if you hold on to the hot pot too long.  I made some w/o the added layers and they got cookie sheets from oven to counter no problem.

Thanks!! I'll have to find the ironing board cover stuff and give this a try! I'm always looking for projects that will work for SilverAdept...I'm thinking a potholder/mit in UM fabric.....

I have this example on my wist. I'm not sure if there's other examples out there or not.

Insulbrite is a brand name for the insulated potholder stuff, I know my Joanns sells it, or you can get it online. I have also used old towels, ( you know the ones that faded or pucker funny after a wash) I use 2 layers of that and it works really well.

We have local teacher supply or learning shops that have blank prebound books with simple white covers. Lots of decorating possibilies, and they're quite cheap too. But then you'd have to write or type and paste it in the book.

Spiral binders can be done anywhere. I think even Walgreens does it. But I know Staples and Kinkos does for sure. Or you can buy kits (more expensive initially, but if you are making alot it might be worth it.)

Rackycoo posted this:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=207039.0 where she used this to bind them:http://www.binditall.com/.  Also more expensive to start, but maybe worth it if you do a lot.  Also don't forget about locally owned printers in your area, it sure wouldn't hurt to find out what it would cost from a locally owned business.
