11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ruffled Tote on: December 23, 2008 09:44:29 PM
Found this idea online and thought I'd make a sample...

Here is my stab.

I found the directions hard to follow, not sure if its me just up too late on too much caffeine or what. Maybe when I make another, if I do, I'll write up some instructions.
12  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Lace hem tape on: November 13, 2008 09:54:35 AM
I "inherited" a bunch of this stuff... while I know its commonly/usually used for hemming, I'd love to make some sort of Christmas ornament with it or something for a creative reuse idea.

I also have a ton of denim.. denim and lace might be a winning combination as well.

Any ideas?!?!

Thought these would be fun to make Smiley Enjoy!
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Back of the seat, car organizer thingie... on: June 18, 2008 02:52:21 PM
I can see it in my minds eye... and I've seen them for sale, but they just don't look very helpful... I think the pockets are too big, yadda yadda

SO... has anyone made one? Tips? Tricks? Recommendations?
15  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing teachers needed on: June 17, 2008 08:41:20 AM
In my online travels, I've seen what I believe to be a resurgence in teens wanting to learn to sew... all across the country... I did a lesson for a local teen... and found it a great experience where I probably learned more than she did... anyway, I would encourage any of you to step out of your comfort zone and take a teen under your sewing wing and teach.

There are many projects simple enough to start with and a great list here of what to teach.

I know there is a teen in the Scranton PA area looking... if anyone happens to be there and willing Smiley
16  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Caps for brain surgery patients on: June 16, 2008 12:08:55 PM
My friend who has had several brain surgeries has realized that there is a need for caps for those patients too, not just chemo patients... anyway... if you knit, crochet or sew or even want to help her defray postage costs... your help would be greatly appreciated.

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Denim rag quilt on: May 31, 2008 10:15:39 PM
Made this for me as a test/sample... I learned some by doing it... but I don't love it... Sad  I'll make another and change it up a bit, as I want to give one as a gift... but just find this one a bit blah...

What do you think?

18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Faux chenille anyone??? on: May 31, 2008 10:14:16 PM
I've made about 30 of these, maybe more... and finally I decided to make one for me... I love love love them!!!

19  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Org looking for reusable menstrual pads FYI on: May 28, 2008 03:58:23 PM
just happened upon this today... thought some of you who make these might consider donating

20  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Four Freedoms Comfort Quilt on: May 20, 2008 08:51:00 PM
Wow... I just can't say enough about these quilts... I didn't make this one, but I sure do hope to someday soon!!!  The process is just neat too... folks collect old jeans, cut them into 6" squares, have people write positive/supportive messages to the soldiers, the signed squares are collected and mixed up, and sent back out to quilters to make the quilts - then they are given to wounded warriors for their recovery.

I have been collecting jeans and cutting them, and have been at a couple signing events and saw a quilt in the beginning stages, layout and square formation... but I didn't get to see it finished!

This picture gives me goosebumps!!! Enjoy!
