1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Woven magazine purse on: April 30, 2007 11:09:19 AM
I want to make a tote bag out of magazines or some other garbage, but i have a problem. I don't know how to attach 2 sets of strips together. If I only use the one set of strips, it's too small. The Ecoist makes these rather large portfolio sized bags, and I can't figure out how they do it using candy wrappers.

I know I can't really explain myself that well, but any advice would really help me.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / old faded jeans-don't wanna throw away on: October 14, 2006 08:50:20 AM
Hi, i know there have probably been a lot of posts asking what to do with old jeans, but i'm really stumped. I don't want to turn them into a bag or pillow, i wan't to be able to make them into a skirt or something. I don't have any pics of them, but they were dark blue and have faded to various shades. They are naturally distressed and lightened in some spots, and are getting thin and holey around the butt. I want to be able to use the fading to create something cool. I like the look of doing some sort of piecy, patchworky like design, like these:

if anyone has any pics or suggestions to help me, I'd really love it.

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / A beginner starting first project on: July 05, 2005 02:27:41 PM
Ok, so what I'm planning to do is make dolls of the Beatles, that look like this:

The bad thing is, I cannot find a good coloured felt for the skin. The ones that I see are either to yellow or to brown, and I don't even know where to begin and what part of the body to start with. Would I have to use felt or yarn for the hair? What stores sell a wide selection of felt colours, but at a resonable price( 2 for 1$) Any help for a beginner would be appreciated
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / School Carnival- Making Jewelery on: May 14, 2005 09:54:45 AM
My school is having a year end carnival, with crafts and activities and such. I'm on my school's art council, and we've decided to enter with a jewelery making booth. The only problem is, we're strapped for cool, original ideas. If anyone has any ideas on what we can make that's quick and easy, I'd really appreciate it.

I have a few questions about tie dying with markers.How are you supposed to wash the shirt, and how do you keep the marker from running? Would putting it in the dryer first set the marker? I need help! I don't want my creation to fade away.
