lissa, if linus is too far away, you could try the binky patrol.
they have the same mission and are also a very well-established organization. most of the branches are able to help provide materials for your donations (with the linus project it's your own donation for most chapters).
you don't need to be too close to these places to help; there are meetings regularly where volunteers may learn a new skill or just crochet/knit/sew together but you can also work on your own most of the time and bring completed projects in at your convenience.
(also, some branches make scarves in the winter especially for older kids/teens)
hope that helps...
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Lite Brite coffee table! on: September 16, 2004 07:23:25 PM
i've never built anything before so i'm sorry about these questions...

- did you buy the lumber and then cut it to the specified sizes or have it done at the store? (cost of the wood?)
- which type of flourescent light and fixture do you use and is it a type that allows it to just rest in the table frame or do you mount it somehow?
- how many watts are the bulbs you use? (cost of the light/fixtures?)

thanks so much!

thanks in advance...
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do i make a pink ladies jacket on: September 16, 2004 04:30:17 PM
i have one that we (my mother and i- well, i mainly watched Embarrassed ) made a few years ago using one of those sewing patterns from a quick and easy pattern collection- buttericks, simplicity, etc. all have them...
we altered it some to make it more what i wanted (fabric, cut, etc.)
and we used a photo transfer sheet to get the 'pink ladies' on the back and name on the front. you could also stencil it or silkscreen of course, but the photo transfer was very quick and we only had
after school the day before halloween...

if you don't care if it is that satiny pink, you could also just take a pink sweatshirt and cut it down the front and add a zipper and iron on the words?

good luck with yr project
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / silver picture frame pendants on: September 15, 2004 08:02:20 PM
i was wondering if someone could please tell me how to make these:


i've seen magnets, simple pendants, etc. with these frames and would love to try something like this-
it is probably fairly simple for metalsmithing- like stone setting but would you place yr image and then the glass piece and then finish up the same way you would for a stone?
where do you get glass sheets cut to size or do you do it yrself?

thanks so much!

So long as you aren't glamorizing or providing a how-to, I'm in if you want. I remember having to watch an afterschool special type deal that was mostly a step-by-step guide to bulimia.

Quote fromPearlyGirl: "they all are"

I think that when you are in that mindset-you can twist just about anything into going along with the eating disorder/not fighting against it despite any consequences... but I think that going into a project with that awareness, (that many of the after-school type specials are glamorizing, not true to experience, etc.) can create a more beneficial zine or book... and I do think that a zine or book, approached thoughtfully, of experiences, information, resources could be helpful.
