481  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re:sticky stuff on: December 17, 2003 01:23:53 PM
 I hate it when they put stickers on clothing.  I had a similar problem.  I also tried running it through the wash several times with no luck.  Here's what finially worked for me.  Take regular everyday type Tide and really coat the sticker leftovers.  Rub it in really well.  Use one of those Tide Kick things if you have it. Then let it sit without rinsing.  I left it for about 8 hours.  Then I soaked overnight it in as hot water as the fabric can take.  Then I gave it a brushing with an old toothbrush and off it came.  I washed it again and that took care of the residue in the fabric.  I probably went to the extreme on the time here but  it was the easiest way I could think of.  Most laundry soap companys have a help line and they are helpful.   Check your laundry detergent.

There's no hope for your acetone opps. Cry  Solvents tend to do that.  The best you can do is alter the shirt in some way to hide it and make it look like it is ment to be there.  Good Luck

Gift in an apple shaped bottle?  You could fill them with drink mixes or spice mixes as gifts.  Here is a link to some recipes for that:
Too bad they probably have to same an opening for the other recipes.
483  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:Wine Bottles on: December 15, 2003 07:01:10 AM
A nearby fondue restaurant has wine bottles as lights.  They have them hanging by their corks over the tables but under a normal light.  I think they put a screw-eye hook into the cork and it is suspended under the regular lighting by heavy duty wires.  They has an open ended box around the bottles so that only the bottom half of the bottle shows and you can't see any of the light that is above.  The wires that the bottles hang from attach to the box frame.  Here's kind of the idea:  O are bottle bottoms and ] [ are box sides.

It looks really neat in real life.  You could also build a wall version with the same box idea but place bottles upright.

Of course then you have to have the wine bottle glasses and candles and so foreth.  Smiley  Hmmm...need more glasses, better have a party...

The AOL tin...the perfect storage place!  Great idea!  I think I'll add a (big) magnet to the back of the tin too so I can put it near the words I'm using.  This is a great idea.   Love it!

I might have to scan in some paper dolls (or covers from clothing patterns) and make a some funky magnetic paper dolls to say the words....I can see it now: a stylish Vogue model saying "Eat the *** leftovers."  Just a thought.  Wink

You could make a pair of placemats:  Use the leg fabric as the placemat and sew the pocket onto the spot where the silverware goes leaving a frayed edge from where you cut it off the jeans.  You should have enough fabric for napkins too.  I've done this a lot as chemistry labs and blue jeans tend to produce holes in not so lovely places.

Towel Rack:  Have you looked around the window curtain rod area in the hardware stores?  My family room bath has an old world theme so I replace one of those cheap silver towel racks with a black curtain rod with "glass" balls on the ends.  Turned out well.  

One of my friends paints alot so she has a trio of unused paint cans screwed into her wall.  (Screw the can bottom into the wall.)  She painted the insides and has the inside for storage and hangs her hand towels from the can handle.  She says she saw the idea on HGTV but I don't know which show.  That would also get you a bit of storage.  She also has some shevles in the bath with more paint cans in varied sizes that store toilet paper and other bath supplies.  She  free hand painted the labels on so it looks cool but you could do stenciled letter too.   Some she added drawer pulls to the lids for variety.  Anyway, you can find the cans in the paint section of the home improvment stores.  I personally think this would go well with melidomi's idea above.  

You may want to glance at unladylike's idea under Re:Used Bicycle Parts
Reply #7 for a magazine rack.  I wonder if it could also work as a towel rack.

Good Luck!

Here's a site which may be of help:

It lists yarns stores in Ohio.  I was looking for the store I used to go to but I didn't find it.  I grew up on the north side of Dayton so I really can't be much help for the Troy area.

However, if you happen to be in the Centerville area for some reason and have a great love of paper and art supplies, Marco's Paper is a great place.  I normially stop there whenever I'm nearby.  They sell their scrap paper (from the printing portion of their business) for cheap at the front of their store.  You can dig through alot of paper there.  Here's their website:

Good luck on the yarn front. Wink

Here's a couple scrapbook places on the north side on Cincy:

Scrapbook Central
Just north of I-275 on St.Rt.42

Scrapbook Junction
Up near Kings Island

Prices are similar but Scrapbook Junction may be a bit larger as  far as variety of stuff.   Both having classes and crop areas.

Here's a question: Have any of you been to Cappels downtown lately?  I know they used to have craft supplies as well as costumes in their downtown location.  I haven't been there in at least 3 years so I'm not sure if they still do.

I hadn't heard of St. Theresa'a before.  I'll have to stop by the next time I'm down that way.  Thanks for the list!
489  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:Ideas for Sirdar Snowflake Chunky on: December 03, 2003 06:09:55 PM
I can tell you that I knitted both a pillow shams and a throw blanket out of a similar yarn and they turned out great.  I did the standard knit row 1 and pearl row 2 for the shams and a continuous knit stitch for the throw.  If I had to choose which of those two projects to go with first, I would do the blanket just because you can change the size and pretend you meant it to be that way.

 Another idea is a shawl or a wrap to wear over your shoulders when there is a breeze.  Also, one friend of mine made a knitted "slip cover" for her slightly damaged favorite purse.  Sounds strange but it looks good.  After she made it to fit the purse, she just tacked it in place with needle and thread.

BTW, great yarn!

Fabulous! When I saw this, I had to try it.  I loved your idea of using a cereal box and made mine with the colorful cardboard carrier that a 6-pack of beer comes in.  That is what I had handy.  Turned out great.  I also used a little tiny hole punch for all those holes instead on the needle method.  Did you dental floss for the binding?  I can't tell from the photo.
