1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Prewashing Flannel - Looks bad after.. on: September 23, 2009 05:38:04 PM
I just prewashed flannel for the first time, and it looks so used. Is there any way around this?

When I put it in, it looks so nice and smooth straight from the store. But now there's piling all over it and it's just not as nice looking as it was before. I guess ironing it would help, but I feel kind of embarrassed using this fabric to make anything I am going to sell.
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / So.. i almost burned down my apartment on: October 18, 2007 02:29:51 PM
I made some cute candy cane earrings.. and I had the metal things in that would connect it to the earring, thinking it would be fine in the oven. I swear I read that you're supposed to put it in the oven with your clay because.. how else am i going to attach it?

well... within minutes my earrings were ON FIRE.

That was scary.. so I just tried putting a little piece of clay in the oven.. and that burned, but didn't catch fire. The white was BROWN.

I'm using a convection / toaster oven. Does that make a difference? Do I need to use a regular oven?

Am I not supposed to have the metal piece in there when I bake it?

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Doggie Tag & Bat Earrings - Shrinkies on: October 17, 2007 12:30:20 PM
These are my first try with shrinky dinks. I love them! Except I hate that when they're done the colored pencil is smudgy and also, the colored pencil doesn't cover it evenly, so there are lines where you can see through to the back. You know what I mean? Anyone have any advice on this? Should I use markers or something??

I put clean nailpolish over them (lol) so that it wouldn't smudge. I guess I could glaze them?
