Some more practical stuff would be a roll of quarters (for laundry) plus a laundry bag and a first aid kit.

It'd be awesome to make photo collages for them...something to remind them of friends from home.

I'd be interested in taking part in this swap!

I found a nifty site detailing how to make DNA double helix earrings that I'm hoping to make over the next week or so:
83  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Iron-on Transfer Pens: my new obsession!! on: June 11, 2005 02:31:04 PM
I just made a t-shirt last night using the black Sulky pen and it looks great (sorry, no photos yet, maybe later).
I was wondering how fading from washing could be prevented or at least significantly reduced. I used a 100% cotton tee despite the warning to have 35%+ polyester since I really want to use up old blank tees I have, not to spend money on new tees.

I've read about using vinegar to set dyes or ink and I was thinking about doing that. I think I've read to either spray a fine mist of vinegar on top and then use an iron to heat set or to slightly dampen a cloth with vinegar and then iron that on top of the shirt to heat set ink. Hopefully this might work. I think I might try some experiments with that over the next week.

Does anyone have any previous experience with using vinegar? Do you think this might work?
84  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: chopstick/dowel knitting needle tutorial on: May 11, 2005 10:58:58 PM
I made some needles out of bamboo chopsticks that I sharpened and then waxed. However, while I was using a pair, one needle split at the point. It was sort of annoying since I had already painted them. Has anyone else had this happen? Any suggestions on how to prevent it?
85  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Starburst Bracelet on: August 27, 2004 03:53:38 AM
I made bracelets like these using the comic strips that come with Bazooka gum pieces. I thought they looked pretty nifty, especially since I could manipulate it so one side of the bracelet was all the colored parts of the comic while the other side was all the tiny black and white type.

I used self-adhesive velcro to close the bracelet. I just took one piece of velcro, cut it to fit the end comic strip piece of the bracelet, cut the opposing velcro piece to match the same size, and stuck both pieces onto the bracelet. It was pretty durable and allowed the braclet to fit my wrist snugly without a lot of hassle.
86  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Straw Stars... on: July 22, 2004 09:57:30 PM
I'm so glad I stumbled upon this topic. I had a pack of the star straws for the past year since I got them in Taiwan last summer. I had no idea what to do with them and then I saw those lovely links to instructions. I managed to complete two stars and my fingers are on the verge of cramping. Does anybody know how to prevent this?
