1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Strange looking seam ripper. What do you think it is? on: December 04, 2016 09:46:12 PM
Someone offline, had another idea.   For use with fake fur, to pick out the seams.

 obviously one end is a seam ripper, but the other end baffles me. It looks like a tiny comb, but for what? probably vintage no brand name listed only the number 3 and it's red plastic. Would love to hear your insights.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: How would you cover a triangular shaped window? on: July 28, 2016 06:29:41 AM
I liked the idea of window film, but it was going to cost me almost $200.. Most of the designs I saw were vertical and I would need enough to cover a large picture window. It just isn't in my budget.

The window screens could be the perfect solution.  I love the idea of something like rice paper, fabric or even cellophane.  You've given me lots to think about.  I could change them out for special occasions.  What fun!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / How would you cover a triangular shaped window? on: July 26, 2016 06:41:50 AM
In my living room I have two odd shaped windows.  I have a triangle approx. 2ft tall by 5ft wide and the other one is the mirror image of it. I want to get rid of the dated vertical blinds, but not sure what to replace them with.  The blinds are currently pulled off to one side.  I enjoy the window in the winter, since it adds extra light to the living room.  During the summer is gets very bright and heats up the living room. It's a pain to dust it every week and usually messes up the blinds.

I might have to make that pattern too. 
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / looking for vintage style leisure bra pattern on: January 17, 2016 07:02:00 AM
Looking for a leisure/lounge/sleep bra with a front closure.  Not exactly what I want, but it's close. I thought they were longline bras.  Maybe it had a side closure. 

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / inspiration needed for an index befitting a scrapbook album on: December 28, 2015 05:37:18 PM
I have three old family photo albums I would love to index.
If you have created a table of content or index, please share your insights. 
I found this beautiful graphic online for the word index.

I just don't know where to go next.

The rest just seems very disappointing.

Johnson family picnic page 9
Johnson, George and Martha page 11
Smith, John page 3
Smith, William page 7,
White Brown wedding photo page 12

Still looking for a table of contents graphic suitable for old family photos. 

8  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: How to make a mummy's head with mini tutorial on: October 04, 2015 06:45:45 PM
The strips were approx. 1.5" wide by 40" long.
Each strip wrapped around the head about 3 times.

9  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / How to make a mummy's head with mini tutorial on: September 20, 2015 01:51:36 PM

I had a glass head I wanted to update.
Next I tea dyed muslin fabric. (I had tea and muslin in the house).
Tore the muslin into strips approx 1.5 inches wide and the length of the fabric.
I also had matte finish mod podge (it's non toxic) in my stash.
I applied mod podge to the glass and started wrapping my mummy.
The glue takes a long time to dry.
After each half was dry, I flipped in over to do the other half.
Pictured is layer three and I have at least one more layer to add on to the top of head, neck and across the nose.
The more layers I add, the better it looks.
Once done, I will seal the whole thing with mod podge.
It will be the centerpiece on my table with snacks around it.
After Halloween it will be a vintage hat display.
I am very happy with aged look of the fabric.

*mod podge is very sticky and must be cleaned up while wet.  
*I have already used 1 yard of fabric to wrap it, so make sure you have lots of gauze on hand.

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Mystery item - how would you use it? on: July 17, 2015 08:01:55 AM
easy, dollhouse toilet ouch

Too funny. You have unintentionally given me a "load" of ideas.

I could easily see these shapes being used in a dollhouse or fairy garden. Mirrors, chair seats, stepping stones, shutters, and other architectural details.
