2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How on earth do I make a travel journal?! on: April 21, 2009 10:13:54 AM
I'm going to the States for a fortnight this summer, and I want to make a travel journal to take with me. I've had a look around, but nothing gives me exactly what I want.
Anybody got any ideas about a very easy way to make a journal (as in absolute beginner!) that doesn't look like it was made by a beginner?
I don't expect anyone to share prized secrets of their trade and all, but any help will be very gratefully recieved Cheesy
Thank you muchly

Thanks both!
I think it might be acrylic (I need to check the labels...) so thanks for mentioning about its nonblockability (?) otherwise that could have been interesting!

Hi guys and girlies

I'm making my first ever blanket, and had a query question thing
i've made each block in a lace pattern with a garter stitch border. I did check the FAQ on blocking, but couldn't find an answer about whether I should block each square after making, or whether I should stitch them altogether and then block it

Thank you for any help you can give
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: flexi-hoop help on: February 26, 2009 02:46:07 PM
It took a bit of effort (and some sore thumbs  Sad ) but I managed to get the hoop off and sew my first one (I'll be putting pics up when all three are done)

I didn't get round to trying the hot water method, but if any of the others are as stiff I'll definately give it a try

Hi everyone

I bought a couple of 3" flexi-hoops online, as I liked the idea of having teensy bits of artwork everywhere, but now they have arrived and I have no idea how to get them apart! I've tried unscrewing the hook and rolling the plastic off but it just aint happening - is this because they're stiff as they're new or I'm just a complete idiot and doing it wrong?!

Any help would be much appreciated, especially if it stops me feeling like such an idiot Tongue

I went to a stitches back in november (at least I think it was then - it snowed on the day anyway)
haven't been since as I got involved with something here in Selly that runs on tuesdays, but might break out and head back soon - at the latest I'll be back in july/august time, when I move out of the oak and into somewhere slightly more normal!

You forget to come on craftser for a while and it all explodes!
I'm mainly a knitter/sew-er/beader although really I just try my hand at whatever takes my fancy!

constantina - there is a sweet little shop in Kings Heath called 'Armadillo' which is open from 11 most days (i think its mon-sat but can't remember what I was told now!) and they sell mainly beads, though I was talking to the owner and she said she was hoping to expand her knitting section. She also sells stuff for dying, scrabooking, some felt and a couple of other bits - definately worth checking out!

Are any of you close-ish to selly oak?
Equally, any on ravelry?

It's a while since you posted, so I don't know if you found crafty-minded people but HELLO! from the middle of birmingham!
What sort of crafts are you into?
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Rockabilly Birthday Purse on: July 03, 2008 09:48:16 AM
My old housemate turned 21 yesterday and I wanted to make her something special. She's a total rockabilly, with Cherries being her utter favourite thing ever and I just happened to have some black gingham in my fabric stash.
A trip to buy some cute fabric for lining and a look at Jodie's http://vintagericrac.blogspot.com/2008/06/tutorial.html tutorial on RicRac as a guide and this is the result!

The Purse

The Pretty Lining

I was really pleased with this - I think its the prettiest thing I've ever properly made, and I was even more chuffed when my friend asked me where I'd bought it! Cheesy
