A little late for this year, but it's done for next year at least!

What a cute skirt.  I'm the same way - getting ready for the end of this year.  I finally got my holiday decorations from my parents' house and now that the holidays are over, I'm getting the urge to craft and decorate for them.

Project bag: this fabric was incredibly fiddly and slippery.

But fabulous, so it was worth it! (I'm not biased towards dragon projects, no, not at all!  Tongue)

And those monster pouches are very cute... giving me an idea... shh! Supa sekrit!

what a cute mouse! I love how you made the mouse your own.

That tshirt scarf has given me an idea for an accessory scarf using my limited crochet skill od chains (which I plan to improve and expand). Hmmm, thinking....

If you want to make yarn from a t-shirt, just spiral cut up the body and the sleeves.  It gets tricky at the armholes, but you can either spiral around the flat fabric or cut strips and connect them.

 I'm counting the photo collage I posted in the 100 flowers thread as one project! Since I don't want to double post, I'm just putting up a thumbnail.
Here's how I did it:( A mini tutorial)
 I used Microsoft Publisher, set up a new sheet of "paper"-Portrait orientation; sized to 8.5x11". Then I went in and eliminated the margins, then set up a grid, dividing up the pages. Next, I inserted one photo at a time, editing as I went. Each photo was kept at a 3x4" landscape crop, and sized as" Document Large". After positioning photos where I wanted them, I inserted a background.
   Here's where the learning curve came in:
I am not experienced with Zip Files. I have lots of digital papers purchased on ETSY, but rarely use them. SO... I figured it out! I EXTRACTED the files, and then was able to use them. They appeared visible in my downloads folder.
   THEN, I went back to my publisher project, clicked "Insert Image" from file, grabbed a paper, and dropped it in like a photo. At this point, my project was hidden behind the paper; but, by grabbing the dots on the edge, I brought the paper in to be even with my project outlines.Just like when you crop something. Then, I found the little positioning tool on my toolbar, and clicked "send to back". The paper was now behind my photos.
Finally, I added borders, and picked color for the borders. I could have added text boxes and typed captions, but it was close to dinner time.
So, at that point I had to save it.
   This is important-how you save it. Since it was made in Publisher, it was still a word document. I scrolled down the SAVE-As option box, and clicked on "JPG Image"; made sure it went where I could find it again, so I also clicked on "send to desktop". Now, I have a JPG of it on my desktop, that is a photo file format, instead of a word document.
   The last step was to resize that to be able to load into a Craftster post, since it was still too large- it took 2 trys. I ended up resizing it to
"web-large" about 600x800 px or so. And there you have it!
Now some of you ask why I didn't use some photoshop program, or something. This is the one that i am most comfortable with at this time, even though I have Photo Draw, and Adobe Illustrator, I am not learned enough with those right now.
