yes! You could do one across the back, or one small cinchy-thing on each side. My down parka actually has them on the sides, but- sigh!- I do not have a camera, so I cannot show you. . .

These are interesting to  look at, but, with the exception of the plastic fish holding sweater, they don't seem very practical to me.

Did you see the "Wierd" in the title of the thread? It doesn't say "Awesomely weird practical knitting".  Roll Eyes

Sorry you didn't get my joke. There was no "tongue in cheek" smiley.  Kiss

What about sewing two tabs on each side and fastening them with o or d rings to cinch up the sides a bit? Oh dear, I am not sure that made much sense. Hmmmmm. How to explain? I'll look for a pic. Does anyone know what I am talking about? Do I?

craftymomof2b: That is THE saddest story I have ever heard. I'm sorry Cry I hope you read these books with your kids. I think everyone should read them at least once during childhood and at least once during adulthood.

Ezri_b: How much vodka?

Mottleykitten: I love the photo pillow idea! I just realized how awesome it would be to give one to each of my room mates with a closeup of my face so it looks like I'm watching them sleep.  Grin I've always been considered the creepy one in the house.

Last year, a friend gave me a picture of us in a beautiful frame. She bought a plain wooden standup frame, then melted crayons in different shades of blue and green over the frame so it dripped all over. She also let a couple charred matches (the wooden kind) get melted into the lower corner. It had the effect of one of those bottle drip candles, which I love. It's one of my favorite things.

you could try making a star out of wire, 

My first thought was "ooh! wire!" You could do some cool stuff with a wire form with lights inside of it. You could also weave colorful or shiny materials (ribbons, beads, bells, etc) in it. Do you knit? Here is some stuff about knitting with fine wire:

Good luck!

My mom's friend sent us one, years ago, in which she talked about herself. She was taking Tai Chi. She had tried some interesting recipes lately. She was planning a trip by herself out West. She had seen some interesting things lately at flea markets. She wrote a whole paragraph about her victory in a "guess the weight of the cheese wheel" contest, and how she now had more cheese than she knew what to do with. This covered nearly a page, the last 2 or 3 lines of which mentioned that her husband had retired, and her two sons had numerous academic and personal achievements that year.

It was, of course, toungue-in-cheek, because we all knew about the many achievements of her family, and  she was just poking fun at the ol' brag letter. Smiley

"Carol of the bells" by the trans-siberian orchestra is cool, there arent any words but they do a version with metallica that sounds wicked awesome.

Trans-Siberian has a lot of great stuff. The Silent Nutcracker is a favorite. I like Sixpence None the Richer's version of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." It's so fun to sing along with.

Okay, this thread is amazing (great work errrybody!), so I am moving my pics here. I was skinny little Nancy Calahan from Sin City. At first I was VERY self-concious, since I usually dress pretty conservatively, but. . . after a while (and a couple cups of Halloween punch) I was feelin' more comfortable. . .

And how does little Nancy stay skinny? Thighmaster, of course!
ps-- how do I make my pictures less huge?
