What a great idea!! I don't quilt and have been dying to use some of my scraps.

Yes please! That is awesome, and don't ever let anyone pry it from your hands! And I don't know about 14... when I was 13 my big sister (who was 17) told me I couldn't read Seventeen because I wasn't old enough. I totally believed her. ;-)

WOW those are great. I can't find the skull molds here in Portland. Where did you get yours?
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Reuseable gift wrap! on: December 27, 2007 08:15:30 AM
So it's not something I've made, but rather something I've redirected away from the trash bin. This year, trying to avoid bags of paper going to waste and filling the landfills, I hit the after-Christmas clearance sales and bought mylar: pretty mylar plastic "tissue" paper, rolls of metallic mylar gift wrap, and a couple of santa claus plastic tablecloths. I'm going to wrap with them next year, and then they'll hold up for the following year's gifts too. I also bought some of the pretty, patterned paper tissue paper - it makes pretty wrapping and then it gets reused for gift-box padding/tissue the next year, as it's sort of supposed to be wrinkly anyway!
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Long Flowy Skirts on: December 27, 2007 08:00:39 AM
Some of my favorite skirts are knee-length ones I make by hacking up a long skirt or a too-small vintage dress - the fabrics are so much cooler than what you'd buy a JoAnn's. If you use the waistband end you just resew the hem - but I love to make cute A-Line skirts by using the bottom half instead. You cut that half to length and turn the piece inside out and sew a dart in to your waist size from a point about 2/3 of the way up the side (on each side). Just finish the top waist and you're set with something no one else will have. I love them - especially the ones made from heavy brocade or wild 70s colors. And if you're thick in the waist (like me) or in a hurry, you can just cut the skirt from an old dress and safety pin it at the waist.

Arm warmers/wrist cuffs? A little makeup bag? Or you could cover a cheap headband with a bit of it and still get to wear it...

You are so talented! You should hit up a local arts-district boutique and see if they'd sell one of your designs for you. Seriously!

That ruffle is a GREAT idea for a small piece of vintage fabric! I have some 60s polyester that's calling to me...
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Any Gift Ideas for very ill Dad? on: December 27, 2007 07:25:11 AM
I am so sorry. I went through this with my dad a few years ago. Touch and smell really reached him, and a light back rub really perked him up for a moment. What about music, or a soft neck pillow with a little pine or lavender tucked inside for a pick-me-up? Something comforting that you don't necessarily have to focus on to enjoy?
