1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Can you fuse plastic and non plastic items? on: December 06, 2008 11:55:27 PM
So I was thinking(always dangerous) about what would happen if you could fuse non-plastic items to plastic items.
I was thinking about the way you fuse plastic bags together.
But what if you could also put a magazine picture, or a newspaper article in it. Would it burn?
Would it fuse?
Would it just be a big goopy mess?
I wasnted to make some tote bags, but its hard for me to get plastic bags with designs on them(due to the fact im broke.).
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Juice box tote on: December 06, 2008 11:25:44 PM
I've been looking for a juice box tute. But everytime I search it, it gives me juice pouches. Is it the same idea? Or do you need juice pouches to make it work?

4  COOKING / Dessert / Jello Salad on: December 05, 2008 11:39:02 PM
This is a huge hit at every party I make it for.
My little brother always asks for them.

4 different types of Jello
3 or 4 different types of fruit, depending on the color of Jello(e.g. if you have blue jello, buy a blue fruit.)

A large container to make the jello in
A large spoon
Small plastic wine glasses
A knife

1) Prepare on package of Jello according to package directions.
2) Spoon an equal amount into each wine glass.
3) Cut up color coordinating fruit and place in jello.
4) Place the Jello in the fridge or freezer(I use the freezer because it takes less time
5) Once jello has set, repeat 1-4 for each package of Jello.
6) Admire all the perfect layers of jello. Top with Whipped Cream if desired.

Make sure the Jello is completely set, because if it isn't, then the next layer will just blend into the last layer, and it will look horrid.
Another way to do this:
Cut the jello into squares and toss it all in a big bowl. If you do this, you don't need the fruit.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting with a knitting needle. on: December 05, 2008 11:23:33 PM
Is it possible to crochet with a knitting needle.
I used to have a crochet hook until my aunt 'borrowed' it.
But i dont know how to crochet, I'm more of a knitter.
Is it possible?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ribbon and christmas presents. on: December 01, 2008 11:25:47 AM
I have three spools of ribbon(10 yards each) and I was wondering what I could knit with them.
I wanted to make christmas presents for my friends at school, but I have 'knitters block'
Any help would be wonderful
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted Rug on: September 30, 2008 09:53:23 PM
I wanted to make a rug for my music teacher(Her office is SO bland, and she said she needed something for it.) And I was wondering how to go about it.
How exactly would I do this? Just knit a long strip and coil it? I want it to have the look of a braided rug. SO maybe knitting a few long strips and braiding, then coiling?
Any ideas at all?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Any Ideas? on: September 27, 2008 12:28:08 AM
I have a nasty habit of buying crochet thread(I love the stuff...its just so much fun to knit with!) So I have about 9 little rolly thingies. In Pink, Purple, Black, White, beige, and blue. I've been knitting eyeglasses mostly, but they get boring after a while. Does anyone have any other ideas on what I can do with my thread? I tried knitting an afghan too, but my wrist and hand got sore after only two rows, and my circle needles are currently out of commission.
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Black quilt with embroidery on: September 21, 2008 09:02:06 PM
I have an idea for a quilt, but I'm not sure if Its a good one. I have 3 metres of black fabric and was thinking of making a quilt out of it. My idea was to to cut out 4x4 squares of black, embroider something on them, and then sew them together with a few patches of red and white. Is this a good idea? I know it will take forever and a day to finish it, but I'm sure it will look awesome!
The fabric is a very sturdy, but I'm not sure what it is exactly. It could be cotton, but I'm not sure. I will have to do everything by hand.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A broken pair of circle needles. on: September 21, 2008 07:45:28 PM
I accidentally broke my size 6 circle needles and I can't afford a new pair. I tried taping them back together and it worked pretty well at first. Until one side slipped out and wouldn't go back in. Could I just hot glue them back together, or something like that, or will I have to beg my mom for money for new needles?
Any suggestions at all?
