yes, a TOC i a teacher on call, they got rid of the term sub here because it had so many negatives surrounding it - that they were just a subsitute for the "real" teacher, when really 75% of the list is just waiting for those "real" teachers to retire so we can have some full time jobs in the system.  so they now use the term TTOC to refer to teachers teaching on call.  hope that clarifies it all:)

ok--I am going to have to throw down my mod stick...please stay on the topic of crafting or at least throw in a crafting statement in your posts!  I have been too lenient and liberal...please don't make me be a meanie! Sad  I know, I know...I have had to catch myself many times--we are a chatty bunch here... Smiley

I dunno, a hundred pages a month doesn't seem toooooo chatty, does it? 

Obligatory craft statement.  I need to make or buy aprons to hold the piece parts of minute to win it games and prize tickets for strolling game leaders.  I am thinking about something like carpenter's aprons.  Does anyone have a link, pattern or better idea?

waggonswest -  if you were doing a carpenter style, couldn't you just cut a rectangle the size you wanted it and then make the pockets what ever size you need to hold supplies?

I could, I was just hoping for a plan that makes the raw edges less problematic without resorting to a serger.

if you made the rectangle twice as big, folded it in half, make your two side seams (folded edge would be bottom) and then hem two top edges, flip right side out and sew vertical lines for the pockets?   you could then attach ties

 I was thinking of putting the raw edges at the top and making the ties binding style all the way across so it will have the strength to hold the golf balls and things they need.  Hmmm... I think I see a plan.  Now all I need is a good embroidery pattern.

A2JC4life, those are homemade photo corners, I guess.  Honestly, it's a very "un-polished" piece but I like the rough look of it for some reason.   Smiley

I love those fingerless owl gloves!!  Was there a pattern or did you figure out how to do that yourself (the cables=owl aspect, that is)?

I'm thinking of going to Michaels this weekend (and using that 25% off coupon!) for various supplies.  I just wish it wasn't such a trek from where I am!  Can anyone recommend a good glue for making marble magnets?

I have used placemats and tablerunners to make quick aprons...and, dishtowel---all the edges are done!

Like this--I added a waistband but you could just add ties/ribbons--use another one cut in half to make a huge pocket--so three towels would get you two aprons...
