1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Best fabric for cloth napkins? on: November 19, 2009 10:58:16 AM
Hi there all! I am really wanting make my Momma and my little sister cloth napkins for their homes *my sister is getting married next week! and my Mom is moving into a new home*, but I'm kinda confused on what type of fabric is best. I've seen alot of people using just quilting fabric on etsy, but is there something better? What about linen? I was thinking that for my mom I wanted to make a stencil and stamp a repeating image along the border, but for my sister a print would do just fine.
I am very new to sewing so I am not exactly familiar with weight or anything like that.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first crochet project! A baby blanket for two great friends! on: February 06, 2009 09:45:34 AM
Okay, so I found out in early August that I was pregnant, so that triggered something in me. I decided that I HAD to learn to crochet and knit. I was planning on starting a baby blanket for MY baby, but instead got caught up in making this blanket for one of my best-est friends and his wife. We are both in military families so I knew that with her husband being away that any little thing would make her smile. Smiley She had Dean last Friday, he's a beautiful little guy. Unfortunately her husband wasn't able to attend the birth, and still doesn't know when he'll be able to meet his son. Sad
Anywho! Here it is, this is my first post with pictures, so I hope this works. Smiley

Okay, now to start on something for my son. haha
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / SLS talk with Bill Nye on Stuff Happens on: January 18, 2009 03:49:28 PM
Hmm... according to Bill Nye the Science guy SLS is made from palm oil... interesting. Apparently by using products that contain SLS we are effecting the ecosystem for orangutans, the palm oil that is extracted is causing a loss of trees that the orangutans live in and consume.
Learn something new everyday! But I guess it is good to know that SLS is a somewhat natural substance, and not as chemical-y as it sounds.
I LOVE the GREEN network. Shocked)
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Is there a substitute for SLS? on: January 09, 2009 07:46:51 AM
Hey all. Okay, so I REALLY REALLY want to make some bubble bars for my baby shower favors, BUT! I know that anything with SLS will break me out like crazy, so I don't want to go putting it in something that little ones are possibly going to use. Catch my drift?
So what I'm wondering is, IS there a more "natural" substitute for SLS? I thought about maybe using liquid glycerin, but I don't really know what I'm talking about... so that could be a total fluke. My mom mentioned sodium coco-sulfate, but I've never used it before and I don't want to end up with another tub of chemical that I paid a small fortune in shipping and handling for that goes un-used.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know that my bubble bars won't be as amazing without the SLS, but I still want to give 'em a go, any bubbles are better than no bubbles at all!
5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Stencil and Etching Creme... but how?? on: December 09, 2008 07:28:07 AM
Hey there craftsers.
Okay so this year I've decided that since I have a little one on the way that everything for Christmas is going to be handmade, and fortunately for me everyone in my family LOVES the idea.

So here my problem. I have NO friggn idea how to make a stencil to transfer onto glass. What I want to do is for my dad make him a few beer steins with the Miami Dolphins logo and maybe the lettering on another. He's a big beer drinker, and he's also a scotch guy... so scotch glasses would work as well... however most I've found have the cutting throughout.

And as for my sister and her boyfriend they are WOW freaks. It practically rules their lives. They argue who gets to play next and so on. But what I want to do is make them matching glasses or mugs with the Alliance and Horde symbols on them, since all my sis plays is the horde and all he plays is the alliance. Shocked)

Here's the alliance symbol:


And the horde:


And of COURSE the fins logo:



So what do ya think? Is it do-able? I know the WOW logos with be easy-peezy, but I'm not so sure about the fins logo. I have worked with etching creme before, I used it to make my wedding favors with were flutes with starfish etched on them, they turned out great, but it was easy since I had stickers to use.

Thanks in advance!
