2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Feather hair extensions DIY now with TUTORIAL on: September 09, 2011 02:55:25 PM
the crimp beads used for this are actually lined with silicone to help hold the hair longer,

also you can get a tool to pass the feather through on ebay for about a dollar and you can get synthetic feathers as well quite cheaply (under 2 dollars) on ebay.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help toys for birthday grab bags for boys on: March 23, 2011 10:07:53 AM
Help Please!

here are the bags I am making, ( they still need to be sewn up and have drawstrings inserted)  I will be embroidering each child's name on their bag.

I need some ideas please.

I am at a total loss for ideas, I have 2 girls and 4 young nieces I have no idea what to put in the grab bags for the boys that will be coming to my daughters 4th birthday party.  I have the girls taken care of, hair barrets and head bands, purses. I also have a few gender neutral items mini reusable heat/ice packs stickers, bubbles.  I will put a few home made treats in them to.

I need help thinking of something special to put in the boys loot bags  I have already made crayon rolls for the past 2 years so they already have some of them.

the only idea I had was to pick up a few sets of jacks at the dollar store and making little bags for them?  any one please help!

of note I like to sew, crochet, paper craft and am willing to try anything else really as long as it is not too time consuming
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Patch Jeans With Flair... for kids or adults too on: September 21, 2010 12:58:57 PM
Patch Jeans With Flair... for kids or adults too

Here is a quick tutorial on how I patched my Jeans,  this looks more kid like though so I put it here.

First you want to collect your materials needed.

Collect the materials Needed
Pre made patch (purchased from Walmart)
Fabric for appliqu
Cookie cutter to  use as template
Stamp to transfer the pattern
embroidery floss
Not shown
scissors, needle, thimble, embroidery hoop and heat and bond

Trim the edges of your hole to remove loose threads that will stick out. Cut out a patch that will cover the hole, I used the cookie cutter for a pattern.  also cut out an appliqu to put on top of the patch use heat and bond to attach the appliqu (for me it was the flower) and iron the pieces together.

Once the patch has cooled use the embroidery floss to sew the edges down of the patches and help keep the patch in place longer.

and here they are on.

A more detailed tutorial including a few exta steps that can help the patch last longer can be found on my Blog.

Thank you for the tutorial,  I was just wondering if you or anyone else has a suggestion for what to use if you do not have a block anvil.  I have been wanting to try some wire-work of late but do not have an anvil

If you dont mind the berries all floating to the top and the fact that if left out they will melt they can be made with out the gelatin and still taste great.  you can avoid the floating berries by freezing and stirring the mixture for a while before filling the molds.

No Melt Popsicle Tutorial
Cantaloupe and blueberry flavour

I have 2 Young girls at home and many nieces and neighbours that like to visit my place and with the weather being as hot as it is Popsicles have been in high demand.  I hate artificial flavours, colours and added sugar so I have always tried to make my own when ever possible, I also find that little ones often put them down and forget about them at times in places you dont see (like last week my 3 year old left hers on the end table in the basement for a least half an hour before I noticed, and since it was one of these she was able to pick it up and finish it!) and you dont want a big sticky puddle, So I came up with these popsicles they are easily made with fruit and juice from your fridge maybe that two ripe fruit that you need to use up ( that is what this batch was made from) try it out and see how many flavours you can come up with!

Ingredients and tools needed:

Food processor (or blender even a potato masher would work)
Measuring cups (4 Cupper and 1 or 2 cupper)
Measuring spoons
Small bowl
Mixing spoon
Sauce pan
Popsicle moulds or paper cups and sticks

Cantaloupe or other Soft Fruit to blend (watermelon, peaches, canned pears all work well too.)
Blueberries or other fruit to stir in
Apple Juice or other non citrus juice or water
Unflavoured Gelatine powder or flavoured if you want

Step 1

Cut up your Cantaloupe and blend until liquidy and measure the amount you have, in my case it is about 2 cups.

Step 2

Pour into a separate measuring cup your apple juice to make a full number of cups of liquid in my case that will be a cup of apple juice to make 3 cups total.

Step 3

Bloom your gelatine.  I used 4 table spoons (2 packets) of gelatine (follow directions on your package) for 3 cups of think juice.   Blooming means put a small amount of your apple juice into your gelatine and let set for 15 min to begin desolving and avoid lumps.

(opps dont know what happened to the photo of this I will add some next time I make a batch)

Step 4

Place gelatine and the rest of your apple juice in a sauce pan and bring to a low simmer to fully dissolve the gelatine. Then remove form heat and let cool for 5 min or so.

Step 5

Mix apple sauce gelatine into cantaloupe mixture. And place in fridge for about an hour to begin setting stir once.

Step 6

Remove mixture from fridge and mix in blueberries ( I used a full pint).

Step 7

Spoon mixture into the popsicle mold. (Yes I have a crazy amount of molds as I only one to do this every few weeks)

Step 8

Freeze your popsicles.

Step 9

Unmold and enjoy.
