22  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / felting FROM FIBER in the washing machine.... on: September 12, 2005 07:25:08 PM
I'm mostly a needle felter, because it's less messy and more precise.  I'm looking for ways to get other things to do the work for me, since all that poking sure pains my shoulders.  I was thinking about laying down some muslin, laying down fiber over it, another layer of muslin, and basting together on the sewing machine before throwing it in the wash.  anyone ever done this or similiar?  I can't have been the first one to think of it...
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Redwood chest with an oil finish & India ink detailing on: September 08, 2005 09:09:59 PM
Here's my baby!  A friend of mine who just got married commissioned me to make it for him to give as a gift to his bride.  I spent a good amount of time slaving over it, in fits and starts, for the last four months.  I screwed up the oil finish on the inset lift-out drawer, and was frantically scrubbing it with mineral spirits for days on end, right up until an hour before I had to send it off.  Another friend drove it out to Burning Man to deliver it to their wedding.






Thanks for looking!  I'm pretty proud of this thing I made - I wish I had the motivation to make things this cool for myself.
24  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Spaceships and Science Swap on: September 01, 2005 01:20:34 PM
I've got this unbeatable affinity for pulp sci-fi novels, B movies... really anything with spaceships in it.  I would probably make this a "one great thing" swap, so you'd only make one thing. 
25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Swap that one really great thing on: August 28, 2005 10:09:58 AM
I've been mentally kicking around the idea of a swap where each person only crafts one thing.  The partners would communicate a lot, to find out what an exactly great one swap item would be - if you are clever, your partner still wouldn't know. you can be kind of a detective, and ask sneaky sideways questios, or lots and lots of questions so that the important ones are impossible to pick out.  People would give tehir partner links to things they found in internet catalogs, craftster projects, etc. that they like a lot.

Maybe there would be an element of "I can't make that" - ie, non-knitters who lust after knit items paired with knitters, etc.

26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / hand-dipped taper candles on: August 17, 2005 04:47:12 PM
I save all my wax drippings and re-pour it into candles for around the house - i love them but they're so expensive!  The last time that i did this, I decided to also try dipping them like i used to do back at the JCC.

it's like being eight all over again.  fortunately, these ones didn't smash in the parking lot.

27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 4 foot caterpillar. needs name. on: August 15, 2005 12:45:53 AM
I ended up with a metric buttload of stuffing from work, and so i decided i needed to make something huge and stuffed.  I've only used half of it so far.  (couch photos included for a sense of scale)

28  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / baby lock bobbin woes on: May 17, 2005 03:29:20 PM
anyone else out there sewing with a baby lock?  it came with three bobbins, and i've made do with three for a year and a half, but life would be soooo much easier if i had a bunch.  problem is, i bought the ones that looked the most identical from the local store, and they are different enough that they make sewing suck way more.

any substitutions that will work?  they don't sell bobbins on the baby lock website.
29  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / dog meets pink pussy pillow on: April 20, 2005 08:35:42 PM
it is a pillow of a pussy, and not the cat kind.  run away now if you are squeamish.

i made it with lots of luxurious-to-the-touch fabrics, soft heavy silk and wool woven and a wierd fluffy sweater and velour.

30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little wooly guys with little wooly dreads on: April 20, 2005 08:29:15 PM
I made these for a cute little kid i met the other day.  She has an infant sister, so i tried to make them baby-proof and nontoxic (that's why there are no eyes).
