11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: stitch n' bitch felted marsupial tote on: November 07, 2004 03:06:37 PM
My version of the marsupial tote.  It didn't quite turn out as I had expected, but overall, I'm pleased and surprized at how durable the felted material really is.
12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: October 09, 2004 01:17:52 PM
As the summer between elementary school and junior high was winding up, my mom had decided to recover the kitchen chairs two at a time so that there were two still available for sitting on.  The Saturday before classes began, a friend was having a birthday party, so I was all decked out in my new Girbaud (http://www.girbaud.com/eng/home.html) shorts.  Not thinking, I sat on one of the in-progress chairs.  At first, I just fell through the middle of the chair and didn't think anything had happened.  Upon getting up, my mom noticed the large hole in my shorts, which then led to her getting mad and demanding to search them out.  As it turns out, she had taped the screws used to hold the seat of the chair to the frame to avoid losing them, pointy side up and one tore through my skin.  I had to go the ER and have four stitches in my ass and sit on a doughnut throughout the first week of classes.  Eleven years later, I still catch my self making sure there is a seat in place before sitting on a chair.   

I've been lucky since then and have managed to never sew through my fingers or glue myself to anything.  I've only cut myself on the edge of glass while framing.  It didn't require stitches or leave a scar, but it sure did bleed for quite some time.

This is my modification of the kittyville hat

I decided that I wanted a big flower rather than the ears and earflaps... here is the detail (thanks beeosh for recomending the knitting embelishments book!)

Also, here is my version of the needle holder

and the interior

I Love SNB!

When I was in Junior High, my boyfriend took a fork from the cafeteria and made an art piece out of it with the prongs bent around eachother individually spiraled and the back twisted on top of itself.  I'm not exactly sure how he made it, but I know he used the metal shop's tourch and pliers.  I think a food tourch or similar could be used to heat the metal enough to twist the prongs before the bead is placed, then pliers could be used to pinch the prong to keep the bead in place while the metal is still very plyable.  
Hope that helps.

I made a scarf out of Lion brand fun fur that is white, pink, and brown stripped.  I intended to wear it but it has become one of my cat's favorite toys that I can't bear to take from her.
18  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:Used Bicycle Parts on: November 25, 2003 02:58:12 PM
If you don't use all of the chain, you could make a really great wrist cuff with some scrap leather or pre-cut Tandy leather in the height of an individual link (about an inch) and enought lenght to cover the wrist along with enough suede string to wrap around the wrist four times.  After breaking the chain, seperate the top and the bottom by removing the pins of each link.  Then hand sew the individual top and bottom pieces to the leather using the suede string so that the string also forms a stitch around the leather creating a polished look.  Leave enough of the suede at each end so that the cuff may be tied on.  I don't have a picture because I haven't worn out my current bike chain yet...
