21  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: contact paper cabinets on: February 25, 2006 08:55:50 AM
Purplesky, when I was in college my roommates and I contact papered the entire kitchen. The countertops, bar, cabinets ... everything except the stove! We never had any problems with anything coming up. It was fine for the whole year, and easy to clean!
22  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pretty, contemporary quilt patterns on: October 30, 2005 06:37:50 AM
Those are great! I'm currently making my first quilt--I wanted something really modern and untraditional, but couldn't find any patterns. I ended up making a very simple pattern in Excel inspired by this West Elm quitl.

If I still like quilting when I'm done, I might give one of those patterns a spin!

The U.S.P.S. priority mail envelopes are made of Tyvek. It's not paper! It's not plastic! It's Tyvek!

24  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: quality iron on paper on: September 27, 2004 08:18:42 AM
I bought some Avery dark background transfer paper at Joann's. Other places to look are Target, Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby or an office supply store like Office Depot.

Most of the transfer paper I've seen in discount stores and office supply stores is specifically inkjet. I've never looked for laser printer transfer paper, but I'm sure it's out there. My point is, I think it's possible, but I would urge you to use the right paper.

You could always print your image (in reverse) on a regular piece of paper, and then use the chemical transfer method. (Put your printer paper face-down on the surface of your shirt/bag/whatever, brush some Goof-Off onto it, then rub the paper with the back of a toothbrush or something.) That method works with photocopied and laser printed images.

Good luck!
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making a shirt--cool phrases needed. on: July 15, 2004 09:55:21 AM
I saw cute tees with writing and rinestones at a boutique recently. They said stuff like "I [heart] shoes" and "shoe fetish." They were so cute, but absurdly priced (about $44 U.S.).

I love it, Annette!

I might try super-skinny ribbon (like what you've used to lace your bracelet closed) on an embrodery needle with slightly bigger buttons (and therefore slightly bigger holes) just to make the whole process go faster. My crafting weakness is definately my need for instant gratification.
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: too small shirts... make them fit on: June 25, 2004 10:47:07 AM
Is one a t-shirt? On Queer Eye, they took a beloved t-shirt and put the front of it onto the back panel of the guy's denim jacket. If the shirt you did this to is very small, you would have to split the shirt up the back and open it up to make sure you got enough fabric to cover the back panel to the seams (or a similar natural stopping place) properly.

If one is not a t-shirt and you love the style, you could start by making a pattern of it with newspaper. Then, resize the patter larger, and recreate the shirt piecemeal using your beloved shirt and other fabrics.

The only problem now is finding big enough jump rings; I may end up having to make my own....
I just Googled "bolo slides" and came across these instructions, which call for stretchy cord instead of jump rings: http://www.aminorglitch.com/make/bubble.html
30  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Sketch Book Covered with Record/Album Cover on: June 07, 2004 08:15:11 AM
I scoop crappy binders from dollar stores, thrift stores ... and I just rip the "binder mechanism" right out of them!
But how do you then install the old binder into a new folder? This was my first idea, but I could not figure out how I would get the rivets out and then into the album cover for the "new" notebook! Do share!
