1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / PVAGlue/Masking Glue on: May 10, 2010 05:19:58 AM

I want to do a stencil on canvas & have a probably quite dumb question!! I just wondered if I can use PVA glue instead of masking glue. Will it peel off the canvas quite easily or will it end up ruining everything?

Tha :-*nk you xxx

Oh My God! I have just made one!!!! Haha - thought I'd be the only person in the world that would want a salad fingers doll!!
I took an old recordable xmas card apart and slipped it in with the stuffing. So now, when you press his face he says "Hello.... I like rusty spoons!"> It's sooo creepy and brilliant at the same time! LOL!

Hi Guys
I'm new to making plushie things and I'm struggling on an aspect.
I'm making a Salad Fingers doll for my friend. If you're not familiar with Salad Fingers - you can see him here: http://bluejaunte.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/salad_fingers.jpg
I know, he's weird, but we like him!
Anyway, I've constructed the head and stuffed it, but I haven't sewn the bottom yet. I'm about to make the body, but I really want it to look authentic so I need it to have those weird shoulders with his head hung low, so how can I sew the head to the body without the head floping around everywhere? Huh
I'm not sure if I'm just being stupid - but I just can't think the best way to do it and I know the geniuses of craftser will be able to help me!!
Thanks guys xx

I LOVE it! It's really cute, very fashionable right now and looks great on you. I don't think it's too poofy at all! If you walked into somewhere like Topshop you will see skirts just like this at the minute with a price tag of around 40!!
Personally, I prefer it without the belt.
You could wear it with flats during a sunny day or put heels with it for the evening!
Wear it. Today!

Hi Guys
I'm new to quilting (this project is my first ever atempt!!) and firstly wanted to say that you are all amazing at what you do!

I just wanted to ask...

I'm going to try free style sewing on the quilt. I am using blocks of colour (rather than patterned fabric) so I plan to use the same colour cotton on each piece of the quilt of that colour (does that make sense) So red cotton for red, black cotton for black etc. But, thats going to look messy at the back isn't it, as the back is just going to be one colour. Huh
I know it's probably better to use just one colour for the whole quilt, but as there are no patterns on my fabric, the cotton will really show up on some of the other colours/
What do you think is best to do?

I bought a pooey table from ebay and ecided to recon it. I've sanded it down to get the veneer off and I've wallpapered the top. I just wodered what will be the best thing to seel it with? (it's going to be sewing machine table)
The guy at the diy store recommened this spray seelant that dries super shny so I bought it but after doing a test on a scarp of the wallpaper it's not going to work.
Would just a clear varnish/laquer do the job? I'm worried about it soaking through the paper and ruining it.

Thanks for any help
