1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Wonderweb/Bondaweb and felt on: November 16, 2010 01:58:29 PM
Hi guys, I hope this is an appropriate place for this topic, if not please feel free to move it.

I'm wanting to make some cushions with a felt applique, preferably using something like Wonderweb/Bondaweb to stick the felt to the fabric before stitching around.

My question is: does Wonderweb work on felt? Or would the felt melt?

In my mind I imagine a hot melty mess but can't find anything on t'internet to tell me one way or the other.

Thanks in advance for any help given  Smiley
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Tori Amos painting (3 images) on: November 28, 2006 09:51:10 AM
I finally managed to get a photo of my Tori painting I did for my friends birthday this last July. She's obsessed with Tori and chose the lyrics at the bottom without even realising what it was for, which was quite useful.
I found the Tori face somewhere on Google all in a blue scale (if it's yours, please let me know so I can thank you and credit you) and developed it to use flesh tones and oranges.

This was my first attempt at doing something sensible with canvas and acrylics, I'm by no means an artist so be kind!


Thanks for looking.
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Help!--Hard clay on: August 18, 2006 08:38:22 AM
I just bought my first batch of fimo classic clay with the plans of making a brooch for a scarf I just crocheted.

I bought 3 colours to match and two are fine, easy to roll and mould but the third is terrible. It crumbles apart and no amount of rolling between the hands is making it smooth and easy to use like the others. Is there anything I can do? It just so happens to be the main colour I need :-(
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I need a translator on: September 25, 2005 02:34:21 PM
 I keep finding lots of recipes I'd love to try and make but find a lot of them (not just here but everywhere on the internet) are American recipes with measurements in cups.

I'm English and work in pounds and ounces.

Is there anyone here who can help me figure out how much a cup is so I can make some yummy scrummy food for my poor, undernourished boyfriend (!!!)?
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / In the Navy! on: September 15, 2005 10:15:14 AM
My boyfriend is in the Navy and though he's shoreside at the moment and gets to come home pretty regularly he is still 2 1/2 hours away and gets bored really, really easily. He's just not amused by DVD's and video games anymore! He also does crazy duties (8am - 2pm and 8pm - 2am) and needs something to keep him awake but doesn't distract him from protecting the ship (and nothing shocking, he's got a loaded rifle!!).

Also, next year he's probably going to the Far East for 6 months and I need some ideas for little bits I can send him over that time and a package I can send him off with to keep him entertained, help him along with the homesickness and, obviously, to keep him missing me!

Thank you for your help!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pool trophey on: August 07, 2005 10:32:18 AM
Yay! My first post of a crafty venture of my own.

This a pool trophey I made for a tournament my male friends were having while we girlies had a night out of our own. Unfortunately no one owns it as yet as it turned out to be a draw and the grudge match is yet to be played!


I used scrap wood, an ice cream tub, green felt, polystyrene balls from a bean bag, an old ken doll and a kebab skewer.

(Please let me know if the photo doesn't work)
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / What the, how the, who the...?! on: April 09, 2005 05:13:57 AM
I was recently having a browse around my local 1 shop (lovely lovely wool and great organic shampoo for a pound!) and found these strange things in the craft section. They're peices of cord surrounded by a plastic casing and each measure about a metre in length (you get approx 25 in a pack). I bought some because I thought they were pretty and I'd be able to think of something to do with them and if I couldn't think of anything then my Guide pack would (I'm a leader). I took them along and asked them if they had any idea what to do with them and they all said they were the latest playground craze and showed me how to use them to create key chains and zip pulls by using a kind of macrame technique. I was amazed by how simple it was though it took a while for me to get my head round it. Now, at my most recent meeting all the girls turned up with the most amazing creations from the same strange plastic cords. There were 8 strand monstrosities (I'd only been taught with 4) and there were animals and different patterns.
Has anybody seen or heard of these and does anybody else know where I can find some patterns to learn how to do other shapes? I'm falling in love with my strange discovery but getting slightly bored of my 4 cord keychains. And being shown up by a bunch of 10-14 year olds isn't fun either!
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / lots of lovely leather! on: January 03, 2004 07:21:03 AM
I'm lucky enough to live near the town where Dr Marten boots and shoes are made so today through Saturday boredom I decided to go and have a look round their factory shop. Well, not only did I come away with 2 pairs of boots and 1 pair of shoes for just 20 (way cheaper than one pair of boots alone) I also got a load of leather offcuts for my favourite price of FREE! I say offcuts but some peices are at least a metre in length as well as there being smaller thin strips that are perfect for wristbands and chokers. I've got lovely soft black and brown leather, borwn suede-like material and a few sheets of patterened leather (you'll know what I mean if you've ever seen the patterned boots). I'm so excited but have no idea what else to make except wristbands and chokers. Any ideas?Huh
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / christmas on the cheap... on: November 24, 2003 01:45:56 PM
I'm going to be incredibly broke this christmas so I was hoping to make gifts for all my friends. Trouble is, I'm lacking inspiration. Maybe if I give you an idea of what each person is like you can suggest some things?
I'm new by the way, so hello to all.

The Best Friend - Not only in need of a x-mas present but also birthday (yeah, she's a pesky festive baby) - She likes HIM, black and purple and red and she's a big time smoker.

The Goth - Usual things apply - Anything black or silver, philosophy and other gothy things.

The Photographer - Anything photo based would be good, but she does like Lord of the Rings and pirates. And peircings.

The (gay) Artist - Anything a bit kitschy or art related. Or gay. Take your pick!

The 18-going-on-8 Year Old - Anything childish and kitsch. Or yellow.

The Musician - Was thinking of a vinyl clock?

The Best Friends Boyfriend - Not know him for long but he's a good guy and drives me places all the time so it'd be nice to make him something to say thank you. He likes industrial music, black and driving.

Would also appreciate ideas for a little gifts easy and quick to make in case someone unexpected gets me something!

Thank you! xx xx
