101  How Lucky I am -Part 2- Fabric Market in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by tinybits on: January 08, 2005 06:36:45 AM
I am living in Istanbul and we have a weekly open air bazaar where you can find leftover and brand new fabrics for real cheap.. Shocked I like to go there and shop... Yay yay for me.. Grin I scan the fabrics, here you go:

this one is the most I adore, I am gonna make a dress to wear over jeans out of it..it cost me only 2.00:

I bought the gray one for only 0.35 and it is more than 2 metres.. Pink one was only 0.25 but it is just 1 metre:

very bright, filmsy and strechy vinyl it cost me only 0.35 and its more than 2 metres:

dark red denim, cost me 0.25, and more than 2 metres:

red one was only 0.35 and it is more than 2 metres; stripey felt had a long pyramid shape :

this one was only 0.25; it is more than 2 metres, I bought it just because of the "do it yourself" it has also some other writtings such as "funky", "electronic radio" etc. But it is some kinda swim suit fabric and it has some paint bleed problems (which I am not sure, that day was rainy so I am not sure if something else made it or it own self is bleeding.But in both case I don't know what to do with it):

Thank you so much tinybits, I made my brother and dad find it last week, and they did! I'm so proud of them! They bought me tons of yarn, although apparently I didn't instruct them that well because they only bought me acryllic... those boys know nothing about yarn! I am really happy though it's great.

i have a stash!

hey.. I am happy for you.. Enjoy your stash.. But I should've warn you before they all sell the acyrilic ones in bins and keep the good ones inside the store.. but well they are very sweet looking and I bet you will knit very nice things out of them.. Wink

I decided to do the same thing, but I added blinky, pinky, inkey, and clyde.
Here they are pinned on my purse, looking for little dots to eat.

that is beautiful and i have to say when you stuff them instead of leave them empty, they look better...
very good job..

Here is the big yarn market of Istanbul where you can find all kind of yarns with cheapest rates. My grandma and my aunt always buy their yarn from this place. I also shop there since this place is very close to my school.
You can buy 100 gr of yarn for less than 1 Euro/ 1 US Dollar.  Grin

the entrance


Yay yay.. I am so lucky... Shocked

105  Full Tutorial To Dying Your Hair With Henna in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by tinybits on: December 07, 2004 03:47:10 AM
If you dont dye hair with chemical products before you can dye your hair with natural henna. Henna is a natural dust to use for hair or skin dying.. The best thing is to use natural one instead of the using the dye products includes henna. Always use the natural one for best results.

To dye your hair with henna you will need :

at least 250 gr of dust henna
a table spoon olive oil
1 yellow part of an egg (dont use the white part)
1 cup of tea (must be cold)

mix these into a plastic bowl until it mixes very well. Then apply your hair parts with a brush. After you dye all parts, take the henna on the bowl and apply all yo your hair and make moves like you wash your hair... Then you need to put a shower cap to your hair and a scarf. Henna must be stay on your hair at least 8 hours.

Note : Please be sure that  your hair has never been dyed with regular products or permed, straightened. Henna will go away as your hair grows so you may not be able to dye it again with regular dye.

Note 2 : Henna only gives shades of red. So if your hair color is in light colors be aware of the results may not make you satisfy.. If you have light hair you can use henna and regular dye mixes to give it a more natural dye. Those henna/regular dyes has every colors you want and not the same thing with natural henna...

 the red arrow is pointing the henna. Henna is sold as dust and is in green color. You may find it in your local spice shop.

A closure look into henna.
