1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Adopt a Soldier on: April 10, 2009 03:37:12 PM
We had a big knit for the troops effort here in Denver, and I've been making helmet liners, but I was looking for a way to, well, know that it got to some one who needs it! I've been chatting with a women who's trying to supply a whole unit, but if any of your "adoptees" needs warm woolens let me know please!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: 160+ Things to Take to Art Shows, Festivals, Craft Shows... on: April 10, 2009 03:30:14 PM
Good Lord! I don't think I take that much with me when I travel! That said I think somethings missing, A stash of personal money (apart from your business cash box) so that if you choose to buy something you don't mess up your end of the day math!
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Somebody selling a pattern from one of my items. on: April 10, 2009 03:19:25 PM
This can be unbelievable frustrating, oh I know. But remember that while this person "stole" your idea, unless you sell the pattern yourself they're not competing. People who want to make their own will go there, and people who want the lovely wonderful item that your have, already made, in hip fashionable fabrics... will go to you. It doesn't remove the sting of being copied, but remember your business plan is to make nice clothes that people want to buy.

Sorry, and keep your chin up!!!

5  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: ***Reusable Pads for African Women*** on: September 06, 2008 08:49:45 AM
Actually I make these pads for my own use and for donation to goodsforgirls. I use old flannel shirts and plastic bags for the waterproof barrier. I layer (from the bottom up) one large piece, plastic layer, two small pieces to soak it up and another large peice on top. The plastic is surrounded by fabric so it won't get torn, but it still prevents bleed through. I use snap buttons but I may switch to regular buttons 'cause I'm concerned about the snaps rusting. Other waterproof fabric options would be the "picnic" cloth which is coated on one side.
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Going green for junior high kids? on: March 06, 2008 05:26:48 PM
I would surf the reconstructed clothes forum, and look for things made form old ripper or torn clothes that may inspire a project. I've had kids go NUTS over making bags and purses out of ripped jeans.
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: How to make plastic yarn, for those that don't know. on: March 06, 2008 05:22:33 PM
I like to use a similar process, but I braid three strands together for a stronger yarn, how sturdy is your yarn? have you made anything? pics please!! clear tutorial BTW.
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Bicycle inner tubes on: March 06, 2008 05:19:47 PM
I volunteer at a community bike shop, and we cut old tubes into strips and use them for grip tape and rim lining, but if you're not working on your bike a lot you likely have more tubes then you need for that!

Well, not so crafty, but as a Girl Scout counselor we would put soap in the end of each leg and hang them up next to the water troughs. The soap would stay put and not get dirty, but it was still very useable.
