I'm still here! Working on swap stuff at the moment. I've gotten some easy boards done, and I keep making projects that fit there... must expand! I did get some knitting needles though, now I just need the yarn and I'll plunge in there.

I don't think it would be cheating if the project could be posted on that board, especially if you don't have access to other materials.

I was looking to see what people suggested to do with old markers, and I came up with this ribbon-woven jar!

1836  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / What to do with old markers? Weave a jar! (Short tute) on: September 13, 2010 12:10:58 PM


I've been going through old boxes of things I never use, and there were bunches of markers that had gone dry, or that had the tips worn off them. I gathered up some of the thin ones and used ribbon to bind them into this neat desk storage jar!



It's great for holding tall things that won't sit well in my pens jar, like my 18" ruler.

So here's how you do it! You'll need markers of relatively the same height (I used 23. Make sure you have an odd number or the weave won't work right!), lots o' ribbon, hot glue, and a base. I used the metal lid from an old peanut butter jar.
Set up your markers in the base by dabbing a blob of hot glue on the bottom of a marker and pressing it down on the lid for a few seconds. The markers will look crazy at this point, but they'll even out once you start the weave.



Glue the end of the ribbon to the base of a marker and begin weaving 'round and 'round and 'round. If you run out of ribbon, like I did, you can tie on another piece and keep going.



My strategy for the weave was: make sure the ribbon isn't twisted, then grasp it with both hands, a few inches apart. Bring your hands together, making the length of ribbon in between into a loop. Slide the loop onto the marker behind which you want it to go and pull it down all the way. Then pull the end until it snugs up. I had to mold the markers a bit as I went, to make sure they weren't sticking to far out or in, but it was a fairly simple process all said!
After I'd secured the end at the top when I'd run out of marker, I squeezed some Elmer's glue into the spaces at the bottom, to give it a bit of extra stability. I would have preferred something stronger, but we work with what we have!

I claim StephanieGravatt for a TV show thing for her livingroom.

2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

Hi! This is my first OWS ever, and I've been really excited to join ever since I actually bothered to find out what it was. I live in Vermont, USA, and I have no allergies. I am a vegetarian, so please don't send me mass-produced leather or fur. Leather or bones you made yourself or got locally, humanely, is fine with me. Fur still creeps me out though. I'm 21 (22 this month!) and am working my way through college with frequent stops along the way. I love joyful, colorful things and natural elements. I love trees and I love the sea, and most animals. I love circus themes, as well as Doctor Who, and Shakespeare. My tastes are rather broad. I love getting and making things with recycled materials, and I try to be green wherever I can.

Crafts:

Weekender bag, doesn't need to be fancy, I just want something to use for an overnight or two.

Soap, I adore handmade soaps, though not the sugary scents.

Musician dolls/stuffies, I have Dio and David Bowie from swaps and I want more! One foot tall max, please. Dio is crochet and Bowie is felt, so any medium is fine. Check out my last.fm for the music I like.

Custom address labels, I send so many things through the mail. I'd love ones with a little acorn or a whale by my name!

Large felt or recycled leather pirate hat, my captain's hat right now is just a cheapo costume store hat, and a captain's hat is her symbol of power! This is the one I have now, and I'd like something about that size.

Knit hobo gloves like these, with the beginnings of the fingers. (Thank you ifallthraindrops! But I totally want more.)

Soft embroidered hankies

Any artwork featuring a jack rabbit, realistic or cutified, just no fables.

Stenciled/drawn t-shirt, short or long sleeved or tank top, featuring a unicycle or vibram five fingers.

Pirate wall art, painted or quilted or drawn.

Oversized tea/soup mug

A wallet, relatively flat so I could carry it into the store in my pocket, with a zipper pouch for coins.

A wisty suprise, except the stuffies.


Supplies:

Butterick Whirl Away dress pattern, any iteration (I think they re-released it? I'll take anything!)

Sewing bits and bobs, like zippers, buttons, colored thread, snaps, bobbins of elastic for shirring, some lightweight interfacing.

Fabrics, I'm looking for two or three yards of flannel to line a jacket, I'd also like stripey cottons, and second hand sweaters and blank t-shirts.

Alphabet stamps for ATCs and altered journaling and Ink pads for stamps.

Sock yarn, self-striping would be fun, but I'll take anything! I'm just learning.

A small bag of potting soil and some plant food for my little indoor jungle.

Grommet tool, I want to make some corsets so I want something that will hold up.

Ceramic markers, I want black but will take any colors

Second-hand floral print bedsheets.

Drop spindle and some fiber to start me out.


Extras:

Teas! I especially love chamomile apple, orange, and peach. Caffeinated teas are welcome as well.
White hot chocolate
I love candy, but I won't eat gelatin. Send me your old starburst wrappers for my chain though!
Little notepads for my purse or the car
Sewing, quilting, fashion oriented magazines
Anything in a blueberry or melon scent/flavor
