1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: cotton fine? on: April 24, 2007 04:15:53 PM
Don't mean to change the focus of this thread but here is a link to a knitting store that carries clear clogs and boots.  http://www.knittersdream.com/
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Felt Squares - Check this site on: October 28, 2006 08:02:26 PM
I looked at the the link and realized that it is the online catalog for a retail store here in the Midwest.  The store is called Hobby Lobby.  It is a crafting mega-store.  Everything from decorative items, fabric, furniture, picture framing, to model kits (airplanes, trains,etc.).  If you visit their website www.hobbylobby.com there is a large projects idea area as well as a link to the Crafts Etc. online catalog.

Here is an interesting tidbit about the store.  They are closed on Sundays so that their employees can worship/practice their individual religions on that day.  It is nice to see a company that respects their employees in that way!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: OH WOW. RICE! on: March 16, 2006 05:20:24 PM
It has been a while since I have used rice dyed like this but I don't remember it ever leaving marks on skin or clothes.  I used it with little kids and don't remember having any problems.

To dye the rice an intense color-

 -1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol
 -6 drops of food coloring (add more or less depending on intensity wanted). 
-1 cup rice or pasta

Put alcohol and food coloring in a resealable bag and add 1 cup of rice.  Seal bag and shake to mix until all rice is colored.  Pour colored rice onto paper towels in a this layer and allow to dry (If I am remembering correctly, this doesn't take too long because of the alcohol!).  Store in air tight container.

http://www.kuninfelt.com/projectsheets/a_z.htm?submit=submit is another great source for stuffie/softies.  Felt is very forgiving and great for beginners.  Click on the names for picture and instructions.

I have made several Wees and I embroidered the face before I appliqued it to the doll.  I used felt for the faces and used a blanket stitch to attach it to the doll.  Another option is to hide your knot in a seam either on the side or in the back (depending on where you place the face) then embroider the face.  You basically put your needle in through the seam and come out on the face (make sure not to pull too tight, it will put a pucker or dent in the doll) and begin your embroidering.

I hope this helps!  They are tons of fun.  My kids set them up like bowling pins and knock them down with small balls!

Here is a link for a Topsy Turvey doll http://www.atticrosecreations.com/topsyturveydoll.html.  This is the same as a flip doll or story telling doll.  Hope you enjoy.  This is a basic pattern but the doll could be customized in so many ways!

I thought you might be interested to know that what you have was originally used to store a curling iron (on the top) and hair dryer (bottom) on a bathroom wall!  Welcome to the eighties!  My mom still has one of these in her bathroom.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: HELP..Looking for 10" Paper Mache' Boxes on: May 03, 2005 08:15:34 AM
I'm not sure if this will help but here is a site I found that sells 10" boxes.  http://www.papermart.com/giftbox_welcome.htm?GOCMP=Papermart_Campaign+%231&GOMTC=Phrase&GOKEY=gift+box
Look in the "Premium" section.  They look like they would be really sturdy.  There are also lots of other boxes that may be what you need.

If you could describe what you are doing with the boxes maybe someone can help come up with alternatives to the paper mache boxes!
