161  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: returning to the dorms.... on: May 22, 2005 04:41:58 PM
thanks for the help on the shelves you two! i'll have to check out that website, moonunit.
i tried to devise a way to keep some of my yarn, my sewing machine and my guitar in my room... i was looking at the walmart website a couple days ago and saw that they had an adjustable garment rack for $20. it's good because it expands heightwise and widthwise. i thought maybe i could put that under the loft bed and use it for clothes. so maybe my craft stuff can be kept in the closet? sounds like it might work. Smiley
this might be super-dorky but because i'm afraid of falling from the top of the loft bed, i want to get one of those bed rail things toddlers use (lol) and maybe sew a cute cover to make it less juvenile. otherwise the side would be left open... and it's not like i regularly fall out of bed but i've been off-campus, sleeping in a queen-size bed for two years! kind of gotten used to that! lol

163  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Perfect Shrug?? on: May 16, 2005 09:05:37 PM
i know this is a knitting thread.... but for what it's worth, the pattern you're discussing reminds me of a thread i was looking at earlier.


it's made from this pattern but with a modified stitch throughout:

i thought that, if anything, it might help some visually-oriented people see the construction of the piece, regardless of stitches used! Smiley

166  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Men's Ties / Neckties on: May 14, 2005 06:39:24 PM
i'm not sure where i saw this idea or even if i thought of it myself lol.

you could measure the width of a window and sew some ties to sort of make a valance. if someone had two or three windows together on a wall, it would look really cool to leave the ends of the tie unfinished and arrange the ties so they end in a v-shape. just pick colors you want to go with the rest of your room!

so in an attempt to save money, i'm becoming a resident assistant again at my college. the problem is that i've lived off-campus for two years and have accumulated so much stuff (crafting and otherwise)! also my future room is about 8'6" by 10'6" and my current room is 11' by 11' with a full wall of closet space... so that doesn't help.  Grin the new room includes a twin xl bed, a closet (about 5' long i think), a desk, a chair and a minifridge in said space.
does anyone have any ideas for organization or a good way to get stuff off the floor? a cheap place to buy shelves or something? i can't make any major holes in the wall but little ones i could cover up might be fine.
i've already succumbed to the idea that i'll need to loft my bed.  Tongue lol please help so i don't stress out about this anymore! Wink

i've wanted to make a side table that has jones soda labels on it... now i have the table and a TON of labels (b/c i was drinking the stuff like water for awhile lol). i've decided that it needs to be my spring project. thank you for the ideas on what to use to stick the stuff on and coat it.

lmao on the joke... i did have the confused-dog head-tilt going on for a split second though. Smiley i just bought some rich chocolately colored, wide-wale cord fabric from my joann's that's going out of business Sad so i'm not really reconstructing per se but i totally love the idea. i'm thinking about making a throw now using my old t-shirts with black sweatshirt backing. what do they call this on the home design shows? repurposing? whatever it is, it's great! Smiley
