I agree with Izzy. Thick hair can be a pain when you're actually trying to do something with it (although with certain cuts a lot of thickness is an absolute necessity.) Sally's is where I got my razor... five bucks US... and I love it to oodles. I'm always chopping off bits of hair that don't belong.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! on: March 29, 2005 01:40:33 PM
I would love to make/jazz up a prom dress (I posted on the clothing:discussion and questions board) but the rub is... I have no sewing machine. **moment of silence** Anyway, this thread has been quite inspiring (I have read each and every page and looked at all the *awesome* pictures) and I do hope I will be among the number sporting my own crafted-up prom dress this spring!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Aargh! Prom is coming up!! I need a dress!! on: March 29, 2005 05:37:02 AM
I have two mint green vintage prom dresses that have potential for this year but need a little something extra. The first has a great unusual asymmetrical cut on the top part, but it's stained. The second firts better (the first one is tight) but it has a revolting, dated cowl neck. I don't know how to redeem either of them for my punk-rocker-y purposes, and it's important to note that I have to do all my sewing by hand as Santa didn't bring me a sewing machine this year. I guess I was a naughty little girl...

If anybody has any suggestions I would really appreciate it! I wish I had pictures of the dresses but Santa didn't bring me a digital camera this year either...
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Knot/Tie method for Reconstructing Shirts on: February 08, 2005 11:57:29 AM
Please help! I've got the hang of knotting and tying the sides of a tee shirt to resize it, but I have no idea what to do with the sleeves. I prefer short sleeves to sleeveless, even though most of the knot-tie shirts I've seen are tanks. I have no sewing machine, so I can only do some limited stitching by hand. The fates of several band shirts depend on your reply! TY!

Hot dog. I think I need one of those.

I second the nail clippers idea. You can get a very precise grip and the tool is smaller and easier to control, at least in my experience. Be careful not to clip the hairs off at the base, your wrist will get all scratched by the annoying minibristles. Unless you form the bracelet front side outward, that is.

Any favorite brands for toothbrush bracelet making? I'm liking Butler these days (I've made about ten toothbrush bracelets out of Oral B, Butler, and no-name brands.)
