1  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / NYC Crafty spots? on: August 20, 2011 06:48:35 PM
We are venturing into NYC next week for a couple of days, will be staying in the area of Times Square.  Would love some suggestions for crafty places to check out - supply shops, galleries, offbeat places to get goodies, etc.  What can you recommend?
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: The Doughnut Cushion Conundrum on: March 20, 2011 08:33:28 PM
So...almost five years later and I was just perusing old posts and came back across this.  It occurred to me there is another way, you could do it in two halves (semi-circles, more or less), turn each separately, and attach at both sides.  Not sure if there is any advantage to that over my original idea or not, but I'm pretty impressed with my first solution!
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Wholesale to bead shop on: March 19, 2011 12:27:55 PM
Hi all
I just had a request to bring some of my handcrafted poly clay beads to my local bead shop to sell. Has anyone had any experience with this? I'm guessing for the moment that I can make about 20 beads per $3 block of clay with around an hour of labor. What should I expect to be able to ask per bead?

Here's one that came up at work today:

Template.  Do you pronounce it as it is spelled (tem-plate, like a plate of cookies) or tem-plet or tem-plit?
5  CANADA / Ontario / Re: Holy Craft! Calling all crafters in the Mississauga/Toronto Area on: September 03, 2005 01:03:18 PM
A little off-topic, but I have to say hello.  I grew up in Mississauga, but moved stateside in 1987.  I still have relatives up there but we're not in touch.  I almost flipped when I saw the name Meadowvale - that's the name of the last school I went to before we moved "South of the Border"!  Before that I went to Dunrankin...wayyy back!

They're great!  Besides the design, I also love the color.  Curious to know if many people "get" it when you wear them.  Enjoy!

I am not sure if the soap would bleed from the colorant I put into it which was somewhat dark ... It seemed fine when I was washing the forks in the sink, the colors did not bleed. No pun intended. But I don't know if I would use for bathing yet though -- it's more of a display piece at the moment. I'd be willing to make more.

Did you say WASHING THE FORKS?Huh  With STEAK???  That is freakin' hilarious!!!  This is absolutely ingenious!  I am ROTFLMAO!!!

Great job.

hey, great tutorial! and adorable bag its soo cute! I want it  Cheesy

but when you've put the lining into the outer fabric and you turn it inside out won't the lining become the outside?
sorry if i sound completely clueless

I thought the same thing.

When you put the lining into the outer fabric, you're putting them right-sides together so that you have a neat seam.  When you pull it all through the hole in the lining, you will now have right sides out, where they belong.  The magical part is that you then push the lining into  the outer piece, so that you have doubled up fabric, with wrong sides together, and everything is where it should be!  Just remember, remember, remember to make sure you have the right sides together when you attach the two pieces.  If you don't you WILL end up with a partially inside-out bag.

Other people have said this, and I have to jump in and agree:  do NOT try to think this project through too much.  What looks impossible in print becomes very obvious when you're actually holding the pieces in your hands.  Good luck!

I'm lucky enough to have a room all of my own just for crafting.  And yet, somehow it becomes a dumping ground for materials, and I do all of my "work" in the living room.  Anyway, as I was looking at some of the other pics it inspired me to organize my area.  To make myself accountable, I'm posting the before pics now, and then I'll go work on spiffing it up.

Yep, it's disgusting.  Look for an update soon.

i love all these bags! would you consider it impossible to try this project w/ out a sewing maching?..i'd be hand sewing but i've developed a good stitch! i'd like to try it but if i should go to my grandma's to use her machine then i will! anything for a cute jordy! Cheesy
I would say definitely not impossible, but one of the draws of the project is how quick it goes together.  I think that piece would probably be lost in handsewing.  But I don't see why it couldn't be done!  Let us know how it turns out!
