I got a fortune cookie last night and there was no fortune in it Sad lol

once I was eating Chinese with an ex-bf and his family.... and when we got to the end of the meal, everyone had a fortune in their cookies, except my then-bf and me.  (I think it was a sign!)

This was a good challenge.. lots of different results coming out of it.  The story of where the objects in your collage came from makes it really cute.  Smiley

that bag is hot stuff!  I think it could go for more than $15, personally.  It looks really neatly, nicely sewn, the design is really cool and unique, ditto for the fabric, and it just looks professional.  Especially with a silk lining.. I think it could go for $25-30, maybe more.  Crafty people think, gee, I might be able to make that... but non-crafty people would see it and just be impressed.  Don't shortchange yourself.  Smiley

yes!  I have never used it, but I have wanted to... here's a link to a great web supplier (all kinds of fun crafty/artsy stuff to look at and drool over)

http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/420658-AA.shtml  <Cotton and silk fabrics intended for your printer.

You can also stabilize your own fabric with freezer paper and print on it > http://www.quiltbus.com/pof.htm

http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/3446-AA.shtml <Liquid you can soak your fabric in that makes ink permanent when you print on it

Hope this helps!  Post if you try it -- looks really cool!

35  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: Transfer Using Goo Gone and Photocopies??? on: October 07, 2005 05:07:50 PM
ohhh.... i promise it's not you!!  it's the chemicals!!  seriously, the only thing that works for me is the xylene.  The chartpak markers are really convenient, but I think you can find it in photography supply stores too, maybe?  For cleaning lenses?  Or try some acetone, from the hardware store.  Also: using fresh copies/laser prints works better than using old ones.  Shoot for a week old or less.  Don't give up yet!  I will post some of my transfer stuff soon to inspire you back into action.   Grin
lol.. copy and pasting from a PM didn't work all that well for me.  oh well.  fixed now.
whoo!  got your sketchbook!  been wanting to jump back in, watching all day for something I can make, haha!

here's my list: 

*a messenger bag, preferably in fabric that will hold up, as I will use it for toting books.  corduroy? canvas? pref. brown or a color that's not too loud (i.e. not bright orange)

*handmade soaps... still can't believe people can make things like this in their kitchens: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47274.0  no scent preferences.  surprise me!

*beaded bracelet I really like the ones that are mostly the same color, with lots of beads dangling off.. no idea how to make those.  (Kinda like this but doesn't need to be a reproduction: http://www.victoriafielddesigns.co.uk/assets/images/green-charm-full02.jpg)
(Thanks Qazicat!)

*Also really like cuff-style bracelets...I wear my "darcangel" style one almost every day.  I could use another.  My wrists are small.  PM me if you need details.   Smiley

*a long knitted/crocheted scarf... (claimed by Lasandri!)

*a sewn wallet or checkbook cover (or a combo!).  I love corduroy and "suiting" type material... any kind of cute embellishment would be awesome (but not necessary!).. animals, radiohead or sleater-kinney lyrics, feminist slogans, cute stuff like that.  hehehe.

I know these are detailed requests... I will edit them if no one wants to make any of this stuff, mkay?    Smiley

i may live under a rock, but I don't know who Butch Walker is... regardless, I like the stencil!  Is it on a shirt?

hey, thanks for all the great compliments, everybody!  I am going to get some books up on the etsy shop ASAP -- I'm busting out the bone folder as I type here.  Smiley 

Seriously, if anyone has any special requests (colors, sizes, types of paper, types of bindings, materials, etc!) let me know, I get so much enjoyment out of making someone a customized book.  I have a HUGE inventory of gorgeous paper to choose from, and great book cloths, not to mention a few leathers if you're into that.  In the meantime, I am just going to be making what I feel like making, and posting them on the etsy shop.

Almost forgot!  I am definitely down with bartering (hence the origin of this thread!)... I can't knit or crochet or sew very well... I don't know how to make jewelry... there are lots of things I'd like to trade for... so if you are broke but really want a book, PM me and make me an offer!
40  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: The Amazing Knicker Swap -- Signups CLOSED -- send by Nov 14th on: October 06, 2005 07:12:02 PM
maybe.  Smiley  Looks like there are only a couple spots left, if we cap it at 7...  it might be kind of nice for this to be small and intimate and totally awesome... I'm sure people will be knocking down the doors to sign up for round 2, once they see the amazing knickers that come out of this round.

so, I'm sending my info to rachel -- count me officially in.  I will conquer my fear of the sewing machine yet.  Piece of cake, right?  Smiley  (Somebody send me a pattern!)
