21  Illinois / Illinois: North / Custer Fair and other craft fairs in Chicago/suburbs on: June 13, 2005 11:22:52 PM
Has anyone ever been to the Custer Fair in Evanston? I've been trying to attend more craft fairs this summer, but most of them end up being dinky little art fairs with not many crafted items. I've never been to this one, so I'll probably check it out this weekend. Any recs for other real craft fairs coming up in the summer? I'm too impatient to wait for Renegade...
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Decorating mugs? on: June 10, 2005 11:52:17 PM
I bought a set of four beige hard plastic old mugs while thrifting last week, and I want to spice them up a bit so they're not so boring-looking. I've not done any such crafting, so I don't know what kind of paints/markers/embellishments to use that would not only turn out well and vibrant but also be dishwasher safe. Any ideas/suggestions/tips?
23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / bird tote on: May 24, 2005 10:07:26 PM
This bag here was created on a whim, from what was originally going to be a flat and boring tote. As I have never made such a bag before, I pretty much made it up as I went along, with the help and suggestions of a dear friend. Sadly, I parted with it for a swap, but I am glad the owner likes it as much as I did. (:

Oh yeah, it's super sturdy--two layers of fusible interfacing on each fabric for a total of four layers of interfacing in there! Yeesh! The sides are floppy so they can be folded in, and there are pockets on each side.

24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Peyote rings/bracelets on: May 03, 2005 04:53:53 PM
I just learned some sort of Peyote stitch (even count maybe?) and successfully made myself a ring with barely enough string left to finish it off.

My question: How do I measure how much string I will need to complete a project? I want to make a bracelet out of this pattern (http://www.beadiefriends.com/RosebudBorderPeyoteTN.htm), but I don't know how much string to use! I'll also be working on a much larger project this weekend, and I'm afraid I won't have enough string if I just try to guess. Is there a way to measure according to the dimensions of the project?

Any help would be appreciated. Oh, and I've skimmed through some About.com articles, but they don't say anything about the amount of string to use. :/

25  Illinois / Illinois: North / Bead stores in Chicago and suburbs... on: May 02, 2005 11:38:38 PM
I'm currently on a beading kick, but I don't know of any bead stores in the area. :/ In the area would be anywhere in Chicago and north suburbs. I know of that one bead store on Lincoln and Paulina, I think it is, though I have not been there before. Perhaps I shall venture over there tomorrow. I also know that there does exist another bead store possibly in the Palatine area because my friend took me there a few years ago; I just have no idea where it is or what it's called. Help, please!
