321  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Body Pillows on: March 16, 2004 05:48:10 PM
I was hoping to make a "pillow corner" in our apartment with large body pillows for extra seating.  Now the question is, what to stuff the pillows with.....Poly fill tends to flatten out or get lumpy even if you fluff and stuff.  So I was thinking about filling it with buckwheat husks or something.  
Has anyone made body pillows for seating?  What did you use?  Any tips or better ideas?

I once saw that someone had soldered old keys into lamp shade shape.  Seems like you need a lot of keys for that.  But maybe you can solder them together to make one of those boards with hooks for holding keys!  Oh boy....it's been a long day....
323  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:go with everything cardigan on: March 10, 2004 10:18:43 AM
Well I started it...but to be honest I did loose interest in it.  I was working on size 4 needles (I used lion brand wool-ease) and it was slow going.  I guess it was the small needles, I am used to working on larger ones.
 I moved on to the punk rock backpack instead, and I am going to try to make my own intarsia picture.  My sister wants a dragonfly.
If anyone has tips on working the cardigan that would be cool.  I am having a bit of guilt for abandoning it.
324  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Crafting to help animals on: March 03, 2004 06:20:32 AM
Here is a good charity crafting site for those wants to help homeless animals.
I like the "Snuggles Project".  You can help animals and use up yarn remnants.  There is also a worldwide list of shelters so you can find one in your area to donate too.

If you are into Asian food and wares the Porter Exchange is pretty cool (In Porter Square on the red line).  There is a cool Asian market there.  My sister and I often go and buy candy that we have no idea what it is (we have been luckys and it's usually pretty tastey).  The candy wrappers and boxes are also often cute and good for crafting.
Oh and there is a place that has beautiful (although a little pricey) origami paper.

Ooo...is this open to vendors?  How can I find out about being one if it is?  Thanks mucho!

You could also use them to store pictures and magazine clippings you are going to use for decoupage or marble magnets. (Krebstar5 and I are sisters in real life and I know we have way too many magazines lying around waiting for us to harvest the good pictures)
328  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:body butter containers on: March 01, 2004 01:33:55 PM
What about using them for storing things like sewing needles, thumb tacks and other sort of dangerous things....the cool thing about body butter containers is the the cap screws on, so if it falls on the floor it won't open and things won't spill out.  
Oh!!!    You could make a traveling sewing kits out of them too, to keep at your desk or in your bag for button emergencies and such.  Or a little first aid kit to keep in the car.  I know these are not really that "fun" ideas.  I must be wearing my pratical pants today.

I had pretty good luck at Michael's (in Framingham, MA).  I was actually able to get 8 skiens of the same color of wool-ease (navy blue)...I was shocked!
