1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Seed Paper? on: June 21, 2007 11:41:43 AM
I've seen in the past, cards or bookmarks of 'handmade paper' with seeds in it, and instructions to plant the paper and it would grow.  I'm looking for some for teacher gifts, but several people have suggested: make your own!

Has anyone done this?  How do I make sure that the seeds won't be ruined or sprout in the papermaking process? What kind of seeds would be good?

I have a screen and blender as I've made paper before, is there any type of paper fibre that would be good or bad to use? (I mostly used recycled paper - old bills and such in the past to make paper)

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Easy Animal to crochet? on: January 31, 2005 10:32:54 AM

I'm a NEW crocheter, working on my first project (the star baby blanket) and now I see so many nifty things I want to make! I've been a knitter for a while, but now that I'm starting to crochet I see all these new shapes that I can make Smiley

I'm looking for an easy animal to make for my daughter, something that won't require too much skill, but still looks half decent. (ie: not looking for something where you just crochet a square and stitch a face on it)  A little piggy or turtle or something would be cool, but I'm not too picky, I'm looking for something simple.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / MY Koolaid Jammers Purse on: January 20, 2005 02:02:06 PM
I made this for my cousin for christmas.  Thanks to all the great posts here with instructions and tips - I think it turned out pretty well:

I managed to sew the bottom on inside out the first time  Angry and it was hard getting it through the sewing machine at the corners, but in the end, I'm happy.  Don't think I will make any more, but it was a fun projects and my cousin seemed to like it.
4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Beaded Wrist Warmers on: January 20, 2005 01:58:04 PM

I want to make my cousin one of those beaded wrist warmers for her birthday, out of the Stitch n Bitch Nation book.  I have thin yarn (sock yarn) and a whole bunch of seed beads, but I don't know what size my seed beads are.  What size are all the standard ones you buy in places like walmart, in the little baggies on cards.  They generally have the tiny ones and then one slightly larger size.  All the patterns I see call for size 6, 8 or 11, but what have I got? I don't want to have to try and get to a bead shoppe to buy more beads if some of the many I have will do....
