21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Recycled Tote from disney bags on: August 19, 2011 05:08:47 PM
I did a basic write up on fusing and constructing the bag here:

The bags are easy to fuse with a home iron. I went ahead and stuffed them with white plastic bags from target and michaels to make a thick fabric  and to conserve the disney printed ones because I have a few more projects in mind for the bags I have left Smiley

Hope this helps & thanks!

I recycled my Disney World bags from our recent trip into a reusable tote--I will use it next time to pack kiddie stuff for the car (it is a 5 hour drive, so the bag needs to be BIG)!

The bags they give you every time you buy something (down to a pack of gum or mints) are huge, and made from thick plastic--they fused up into a nice fabric--the bag stands up on its own.

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: T-shirt to yoga pants- Question about stitching on: July 23, 2011 12:25:07 PM
How is the quality of the thread? If you are using a good, 100% cotton thread, then I suspect the stitch or needle is the culprit...but if you are using cheap thread (like the 25 cent stuff from walmart) it is likely not strong enough for the stress and movement of the seams you mentioned. The cheap thread definitely has its uses, but I would try a good quality type for seams that need to hold up to stress. Love the shorts--I have to make a pair!!

You did such a great job--and if that is joann's Rainbow Boucle (it looks like it), then you are double awesome, that is tough to work with !!

Love the sweater, love the color, so pretty!

I bought this book years ago, for this very piece...and I even have the yarn...your pic might be the thing that puts me over the top and gets me to cast on!!

I hope chickens count as pets! we're picking up our new birds in about two weeks--they'll be about a day old, so they need a brooder box for a few weeks. We also have one very predatory cat, so here is the solution we came up with:

The lid locks and the wire openings allow for the heat lamp to shine through, but don't allow kitty access to a buffet of small, flightless peeps Smiley

Details on the blog, for anyone thinking "chicks" this spring!
