1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A Green Idea Chain Game 2010 on: March 09, 2013 06:14:22 PM
A: Is the plastic frame like PVC pipe? You could cut it into small sections and glue some of them together to make a desk organizer. The net itself is a bit tougher, without knowing how small the spaces are, but maybe a mesh duffel bag for other sporting equipment?

Q: Is there anything I can do with the plastic tubes inside rolls of cash register receipt paper?

I would think the clear straps would possibly break while you're running. I think I would use nylon thread, or could you use monofilament fishing line instead?
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crochet Hook? Help on: February 08, 2012 05:19:57 AM
My guess is that that would be a D size. My C size is a 2.75 and My E is a 3.50, so a D is somewhere in the middle. According to :http://www.purplekittyyarns.com/info/crochet-hook-conversion.html there is no US size the same as a 3 mm, unless you can find a uk/canadian size 11

hmm, I work at a drycleaners. Occasionally we get military shirts that need pleats like that. the fronts  and backs are usually permanently creased and have something like a small line of silicone running down them on the inside. Hot glue or rubber cement might work too. My other thought was to treat it something like an "isis" cape, meaning sewing caseings on the underside of each pleat and putting boning in those channels, kinda like a corset.

it might, but where would I find it?

he uses full armor, not just chainmail. his last one was really thick, which restricted his movement slightly. I think I'm going to have to take him with me, show him the thickness of the batting, and let him pick.

so he used regular cotton quilt batting? hmmm, I thought that would be too thin, but maybe if I doubled it?

9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / SCA Heavy fighters gambeson fabric? on: January 29, 2012 03:18:49 PM
So my hubby and I were in the Sca when we met, but have been away from it for quite a while, about 5 years now. He's looking to get back into the "heavy" armored combat again, but his Gambeson(the Padded/quilted under shirt ) was lost to flooding a few months back. I'd like to make him another one, but I'm not sure where to find fabric for it. A lot of fighters use moving blankets, or some thing dense but kinda thin like that.

Any Suggestions?

That all looks fantastic! Just a tip about the caster sugar, In the states we call it superfine sugar, you said you use regular sugar, since you never have it on hand, the only difference is that caster is finely ground. So you can put the regular sugar in a grinder or processer and make caster sugar.
