I have all the supplies I need, except now that I need them, I swear I can't find them anywhere!!
Hopefully I can find everything by today or I'm going to have to schedule a shopping trip this weekend (oh darn??)

You guys are making me so jealous I couldn't join. I don't even have time for this as a fake swap right now. Can't wait to see the gallery!

Never fear, I was thinking about perhaps claiming something for everyone on the list right now. Cheesy

I have lots of good ideas for everyone. Cheesy

Me too! This is my first ever swap, I'm really nervous but excited!

You could use the fabric to 'mat' the postcards! Such a great recycled and personal art piece for the home. I'm sure he'd love it! Make sure you post pictures when you're done! Kinda makes me want to get a hammock and cut it up! Wink

I saw a beautiful display done recently, the woman purchased a bunch of canvases in various sizes and layed them out on the (world) map to create the shape, then cut the map to fit on the canvases and mod podged them on. Even though technically the map was cut up, when placed on the wall it was still whole.

I wish I could remember where I saw it...I will look! If you need a better description let me know!

EDIT//Found the link!

The wooden divider and rope, I looked up a picture of it get inspiration, and I think it could be a great gallery display in the house. Maybe not functional per say, but sorta! Maybe you could get dollar tree frames, fill with pieces of fabric from the hammock, and attach to the rope in various lengths to create a beautiful visual display. (if you need more of a description let me know!)

The only thing I can think of from the fabric is a tie. Does he wear them by any chance?
Kindle/iPad/Cell phone case?

I did recently see instructions for building an umbrella. Maybe you could make it into an outdoor umbrella for him, so he can still use the fabric to enjoy outside?

Sorry hope I helped/or inspired you somewhat!

I will have to try and find them! A friend stole one (Hufflepuff-her favorite house), and one ripped because the bagger put ALL of the beverages into one itty bitty little bag. So I since retired them for grocery purposes. But I still have them...somewhere.

I'm not gonna lie, you guys are making me jealous! I have a little plastic KIDS sewing machine. That's the extent of my sewing capabilities.

If you want to paint cinder blocks, you just have to coat with a latex sealant first. Any type of paint (should) work after that. Although I honestly think it depends on how old the blocks are.

Ooo, I love the CD banner idea! One of those "why didnt I think of that...?" crafts.
I still have a stack of CDs from like 5-10 years ago when companies send a CD with like every junk mail ad they mailed.
I might have to try that idea thanks for sharing!

Oh...My...Gosh...YES! Harry Potter talk, JUST WHAT I NEED!! Hmm... now the only question is... what can I make that is HP-related? I am a sewer/quilter. I used to do jewelry work but as I have been packing (we're moving 3000 miles in 1 1/2 months) my beads and tools have already been boxed up. Give me ideas!!! xD

I'm sort of a subtly obsessive HP fan. Wink
My friend made me patchwork reusable grocery bags, each one using fun summery fabrics that happen to be HP house colors. (4 different bags)
It was so cute, and super functional. Plus it didn't scream HP, yet shopping one day I pulled them out and the bagger looked at me said, "did you realize each bag is the HP house color?" It was classic. Anyway, maybe that can give you some inspiration since you sew!
