1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Corset + bustle from flea market materials (sculpture-ish) on: January 29, 2011 04:12:28 AM
Amazing! Never fails to surprise me how creative people repurpose something.

Btw, pretty hate machine is the only great nin album! Oldschool industrial, before the band became too metal... It's a wonderful cd.
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Hairspray: Tracy Turnblad's roach dress on: November 13, 2010 02:32:24 AM
Love it. Am also a big fan of hair spray. Wondering, btw, what ever happened to rickie lake? Haven't seen her on tv in years.

Excellent!!! It looks 3 dimentional even. Great for a tat, that's for sure. Very original. Not like it'd be one of those boring over- popular tats, such as that 'heartagram' logo for the band, HIM. Yuck.

Yeah, I am not fond of kids, either, most especially preschoolers.*shudders*. amusing little craft. Though I must say when I first viewed it, I thought it was in poor taste until I'd read the post, and then realized the craft was made in jest.

And, indeed,  babies are homely. What to say when someone shows you photos of their babies and they are ugly?Huh It's certainly hard to not to sound false when remarking, ' oh, s/he sure is cute.'  Ack.
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / What type of fabric is suitable for a lampshade? on: November 12, 2010 03:40:40 PM
I have a lampshade form which goes with an old art deco lamp that used to belong to my grandfather. I want to cover it. The old material had rotted. I believe it was silk.

I use only compact fluorescent bulbs; they don't get as hot as incandescent bulbs.

I have swatches of fabric, all of which is cotton of different weights.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: TUTORIAL: my first bowling bag! on: August 15, 2008 02:06:55 PM
I  would  love  some  help with sizes can anyone point me  in the right direction?

me, too. that would be most helpful.
i ADORE this bag beyond belief. your choice of materials for thw handles is beyond inventive. clever!

do ya think i could make this bag from a felted sweater? said sweater after being felted is now a child's size- say for a 10 year old. before felting, it was a large men's size. the felt is very dense.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: A Different Kind of Swiffer Cover on: August 31, 2007 01:15:06 PM
i just experiemented with a thin washcloth and it works better with my mop than those overpriced eco-unfriendly mop covers. i recommend wetting it first, as it cleans better this way. cleaning with the dry pads, wetted only with the solution left streaks on my floors.
anyhoo, i think this is a better way to use the 'swiffer' type of mops.
mabey one day, i will knit a cover for it, though, using rougher yarn, which would aid in scrubbing indeed, as you'd mentioned.

this is a wonderful idea indeed. Cheesy
however, i need something for my wet 'clorox' mop i'd just bought recently. i used it today and am pleased with the results.
alas, i want to be ' green', so i wonder if using those thin cheap washcloths would work? i could rewash them, of course. it'd also save money as well, and be kinder to the environment.
in addition, i am thinking of making my own solution when the bottle that'd come with my mop kit runs out. i was thinking of using bleach , water, and a little dish detergeant. i don't want to use vinegar as i don't like the smell of it.
any  additional suggestions would be appreciated.
