11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Jack Kerouac shirt -> reversible bag on: March 06, 2009 03:52:30 PM
Love it! I really like the lining fabric, and that it's reversible, although I like the Jack Kerouac side best.  Grin
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / No interfacing! Need creative substitution! on: March 05, 2009 12:54:00 PM
So I live in a country that doesn't have interfacing. I've looked in all the fabric stores, but a "fabric store" means just fabric, no notions, etc. and it's fabrics for making traditional or Muslim garments, primarily (which are beautifully embellished with sequins and flowers, etc.). I'm making a purse out of some old ripped jeans, and would like it to be stiff enough to have a little shape, but I don't want it to be super-stiff, if that makes sense. I've read that you can use dryer sheets, but I live in a country that also has no dryers. Smiley

Would something like the cover of a school notebook work? Would it be too flimsy or bend and lose its shape really quickly? The purse will be lined, but I'm using an old skirt that is really lightweight, so it won't help hold up the purse any. I tried a piece of cardboard cut out from a care package from my mom, but that was too stiff (I figured I could just glue it in, right?) Thanks for any suggestions you have!

Outstanding as usual. I'm envious of your execution skills!

As a fan of ATHF in general, and Meatwad in particular, this is amazing! I love it!
16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: X-stitchers: Do you finish a color or an area first? on: February 19, 2009 11:14:46 AM
I am clearly an amateur with much to learn. I don't have a hoop, or keep my work in a safe place, and the cat usually sits on my lap while I'm working. I'm sure I'll learn my lesson just before I finish a giant piece (if I ever make it that far with my crafting ADD)!

So far I'm working one color at a time, just willy-nilly. I really like the idea of having a few different needles going with different colors to avoid counting mistakes, but I'm wondering how hard it is to keep them untangled while you're working?

Are there really cross stitching kits with preprinted canvasses? Wow, that sure would make things easier!
17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Alternative Guestbook Ideas on: February 18, 2009 01:16:06 PM
I should have mentioned that they had a wine and food themed wedding, and gave out handmade cookbooks with their favorite family and personal recipes as favors.

For our wedding, we did something a little different, but not too crazy. We put stacks of half sheets of construction-weight paper on every table at the reception and a box of crayons. Our guests colored messages, pictures, or jokes on them, and we collected them all in a little book. The cool part was that a lot of people made more than one, but I think if we had a regular guest book they would have felt odd writing in it more than once. Also, they didn't have to wait to sign it, and they were able to spend as much or as little time as they wanted, and I totally love all of them. It was especially fun to see how the cards changed--in penmanship quality and in content--as the night went on and more wine was consumed!

My best friend had an interesting guest book at her wedding. She and her new husband love love to cook for themselves, each other and everyone they know. So, they had their guests sign 2 aprons for them using permanent markers. It was a perfect idea for them and their personalities.

So great! I wish I'd thought of something fun like this for my wedding! how hard was it to drill the holes in the pencils and popsicle sticks without them splitting? Did you use a regular hand-held drill?

I never woulda thought about doing this in a billion years, and I am so happy that you did. Seeing this made me smile. Thanks so much for sharing this!
