Oh yeah, I'm IN!

Here's what I put on my can teach list when I signed up:

1.  Tin Purse
2.  Wire jewelry
3.  Card making or scrapbooking.  (Although the scrapbooking one might be kinda involved because scrapbooks aren't always cheap, and since bookbinding was one of the things I want to LEARN, I'm not sure I could MAKE one.)

And here are the things I forgot that I could add to the can teach list:

4.  How to knit
5.  How to crochet
6.  How to Kool-aid dye yarn, including a knit or crochet pattern for when you're finished

I'm sure there are tons of other things I could teach, too.  I wouldn't even mind getting paired with someone who wants to learn something I have to stretch myself to teach.  It would be a learning experience all it's own to come up with something really extra cool for someone in a craft I'm not as familiar with yet!

3.Earring Making: Interested in making earrings?...wires, beads, thread....those awesome plastic charms!! I have tons waiting for you!

 Ah, I know what you mean handlethis, it's very exciting isn't it? This is what I've offered so far, although I'm trying to think of a few more kits I could put together...    

     1. Simple Pillowcase Embroidery Kit
     2. Simple Button Brooch Kit
     3. Sock Monkey Kit
     4. Recycled Fabrics Mini Tote Kit

And hertrigger, your list is great. There's lots of things on it I've never done.

I can't wait for things to get under way! Grin

My list that I can make is even less creative then everyone combined!!!!

Yikes.  I better do some serious new learning! 

Any--who....I can do:

**Embrodiery (my fav)
**Simple jewelry
**Crochet
**Knitting
**Needle Felting (I have been obsessed lately...my mind is whirling with this)
**Simple Quilting

I really could work something else out too.  All it takes is a little research and some energy to experiment.

snack on! 


Oooo...I forgot....I would love to create a how to a felted knitted goodies kit.

here's what i can make for ya:

-beginning crochet
-sewing (purses, ipod cases, zipper pouches, wristlets, etc. i don't know clothes. i'm not an expert, but i'm pretty good with a sewing machine)
-record bowls
-beaded bracelets/necklaces
-hemp jewelry and keychains
-stenciling (i'm a bit of a beginner, but i know what i'm doing)
 that's all i can think of.

i would like to learn:
candle making
SOAP MAKING (i really want to learn that)
more embroidery (i only know a little bit)

oh man, i had more, but i can't think of them.

silk painting sounds really cool!! and i want to learn earrings. i can't do those. i'm adding that to my list of things i want to learn. needle felting sounds cool, i'd like to look into that, and so does the sock monkey thing!
