1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Check out the fabric score I made this weekend!! (lots of pics) on: August 19, 2009 06:58:41 PM
Like everyone else, I'm impressed and flattered.  Though I don't need more since I "inherited" my mom's stash when she moved in with my sister.  But that doesn't stop me from looking.  I've gotten some great deals at garage and yard sales too, the latest being some home dec fabric for $2.00 that I used to slipcover my free loveseat.   Gotta love the deals!!   Congrats and be sure to post what you make.

Absolutely Fantastic.  It was wonderful to see your progress.  Thank you so much for sharing your "journey".  Although I won't be doing one like this, it gives me insight on how to work with some of the materials.   

Also, I'm glad I just saw this thread today when it was finished, otherwise I would not be able to wait to see the finished product.

3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Shrinky Dink Swap (signup May 14, 2009-May 31, 2009, send by June 30) on: May 27, 2009 07:43:16 PM
I'd love to do some Shrinks...but don't know how.  Can't participate in the swap because my son is getting married this summer and I'm sewing up a storm.

My questions....can you use anything else except the stuff made by shrinky dink?  Someone suggested #6 plastic...can you use carryout plastic containers, cups. etc?  How much bigger do you start with to get the shrinkage?  How do you do it?  Or, can you direct me somewhere where I can find out how to do w/out buying stuff? 

Ok, as a thank you, I'll tell you what I want to do.. I saw some plant markers a couple years ago at a garden walk.  The lady had the names of her plants written on plastic and then shrunk.. she said they last a long time and don't wash off.  We have some new perrenials, and would love to do it.   this might be a good idea for someone to use in the swap.   Thanks.

Great pics....and very nice outfits.  I too love the skirt.  Personally I'm too old to wear it; but know someone who would love it.  Can you find the tute and post it here?  Thanks...

Just read the other post on the I'Spy bags.  You did a fantastic job.   I'm sure everyone loved their gifts.   Did you personalize them for their ages, sex, interests, etc.   Again, where did you find all the "stuff".

Mare Mare, I LOVE the truck fabric you used.  Where did you get it?  I have a 3 year old grandson who loves construction trucks and would love to make this for him - perhaps putting trucks inside, tools, etc.  IF I can find them.  Please let me know where you got the fabric.

Someone in an earlier post was concerned about using rice especially that it might come thru or get buggy.  I make rice heat packs all the time (and use them 2 - 3 x a day for my sore back, shoulders, etc).  The only time I've ever had rice come thru was if it was put in a microwave on the turntable that had  some grease on it, and it scorched a hole thru it.  So, now I make sure my microwave is very clean.  Also, since I made quite a few for gifts, I microwaved the rice on high for a couple minutes to kill any bugs in the rice.  Never had any problems; but felt safer in giving them as gifts.

Absolutely fantastic.  My first comment when I saw the finished pic was WOOOOW!!!  Great Job.

Congrats on the win...it is stunning.   How long did it take you to do this?   Love the "curtsy feature.  It probably helps if you need to go to the bathroom too! Roll Eyes

That definitely is me before my coffee.  I'm sitting here with my first cup of the day, and reading this.  I LOVE IT.  Will definitely be using the tute to make some of these when I'm out.  Love the reusing idea, and hate to throw away the holders.  This rocks!!
