I just have to say...... how adorable! The dress and the girl! Love that big C_H_E_E_S_E smile. Great technique for the back lacing. I thought...hummm loops how simple. The whole grommet thing can become over powering for me not to mention that they add up on price to your notions too! Great Job!

A few answers....
I haven't really noticed that it will "tip to one side 1/2 filled" because there is wooden dowl running lengthwise where the handles are and the handles are centered for balance (but  I hardly ever return with food). If it did try to go heavy on one end your dish is secured with the inner flaps that have tie straps. Thanks for bringing up that point.

This one does a pretty good job at keeping things warm because it's actually lined. This one is 3 layers thick. The top and bottom fabric and I lined it with a terry bath towel. So with the 2 layers of cotton fabric and the towel in the center it makes it pretty thick. I guess it would depend on your fabric/ lining choice as to how well it holds heat. I made this from stash on hand supplies (hence the recycled lining...hehhehe). These materials make it machine washable friendly too. Just remember to slide out the dowl before tossing in the wash.

made another one, a little less bulky. I only made it with 2 layers, lined it with a soft flannel.

I love the 50's era. This is very pretty, a great job! I love the way it flows on the beach too. I love the coast but only get to visit for 1 week a year. Lucky you to be there Cheesy
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 1 plate +1 martini glass = cake stand on: April 06, 2010 11:45:05 AM
I took a solid clear dinner plate, a martini glass, some glass stones  ( from the Dollar Tree) and some really strong goop adhesive, put that all together and came up with this.

I made a cake stand for my friends birthday!
I glued the glass stone inside the martini glass.
I took a picture and cut it out the same size as the glass opening and sealed it in between the glass and the plate.
Sealing the plate to the glass with a tight seal of goop adhesive.
 I'm learning to glass etch with a dremmel tool so I etched their names around the picture.

I painted some trim around the picture and also the rim of the plate. (boy I need to practice the steady hand more!)
I'll throw this one in too....

It's still a work in progress. All the writting is etched glass. The 50th anniversary is the golden one so I sponge painted gold around the plate. I'm gonna go back and make it into more of a Mable effect.The writting appears to look silver but it's not. I placed in on a dark background so that you could see the etching. The plate is clear and the etch is frosted in real life.

Is the design painted or etched? Those would make such neat gifts for any occassion. Great job
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / First attempt at Quilling on: March 29, 2010 06:40:11 PM
This is my first quilling item. I just learned of this paper craft from a wonderful friend and thought I would give it a "twirl".
I don't have all the fancy tools, just paper I cut into strips, good ol' school glue, and I used a bobby pin to roll the paper strips. The bobby pin worked well because It "holds" the beginning of the paper roll and then I slid it off and continued to roll freehand.

Since I'm  new to the craft any tips, tricks or suggestions would greatly be appreciated!

Thanks for the comment of encouragement! I agree with the pesty transporting of HOT dishes. When I pot luck a hot item I try to cook it "just before" time to go trying to keep it warm and fresh leaving me with a HOT dish to carry. My solution up to this point was I would wrap it in a towel so not to burn my hands in carry process. Not the most attractive solution but it worked. I then sat down to try to "create" a carrier and the result is a really easy sewing project if you have basic sewing skills. You can always set your dish on  the fabric to modify the pattern  size and shape to fit your dish.

I posted this in the occasions and holiday section  for Mother's Day because I made this for my Mom for a mother's day gift. Thought you might would like to see it in this section to.
This link is for a round/oblong carrier, with tute.
I also made one to fit a 9x13 cake pan.

This one is made from recycled sheets, a bath towel for liner and there is wooden dowel across the long sides under the handle so that it supports and holds shape.
