321  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: What would you make with these fabrics? on: March 30, 2005 11:20:59 AM
the tree fabric would make a super nifty garden tote.  use it for toting garden sheers, gloves, whatever.

you could put out a stack of small paper squares for people to write personal notes/memories about the loved ones that are gone. . .then have a big glass bowl or pretty vase nearby for the finished notes.  later, they could be incorporated into a scrapbook or decoupaged onto a frame. . .

i love the idea of pyjamas. . i hardly ever buy that stuff for myself, but i love when people give me lounge-y things.

for my bridesmaids i couldn't decide WHAT to do so i incorporated lots of little things in big, pretty boxes that i decoupaged with natrual fiber paper.

inside i put:

a tiny chinese silk pinch box with their wedding day jewelry
a notebook made by this fabulous bookbinder (www.graciesparkles.com, my books are featured!)
a pashmina for the wedding (bought in bulk on eBay!  and i put brass beads on the fringes)
a yummy smelling candle (cinnamon, oatmeal cookie, honey vanilla, and caramel)
and a compact mirror decorated with gorgeous enamel work

the best part was that they could wear the pashminas and the jewelry again and again and the box could be used to store greeting cards, craft stuff, whatever.
324  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: iPod Cozies on: March 25, 2005 07:31:43 AM
So, here's my first post on craftster.  I know it's not a knitted project, but it is an iPod mini cozy.  I'm desperate to knit one for myself and I absolutely must have the holes for the screen and the wheel.  If anyone knows of a good pattern that incudes allowances for the screen and wheel PLEASE point me in the right direction.

My cozy is hand sewn from a pair of old jeans.  I don't have a sewing machine, so it's VERY rough.  My husband said "Hey, that's pretty cool, what are you going to put around those holes to make them prettier?  Are you going to hem them or something?"


I should have put a strap on it, but to make a neck strap from a single strip of stretchy denim is tough.  I cut one fom the bottom of the leg up to the waitband at it still wasn't long enough.  *shrug*  For now I'll just keep it in my pocket until I knit one.

I took the pictures on my little office rock garden.

*crossing fingers*  I hope I posted the pictures right.

organza ribbons come in all types of curly, wavy varieties now. . . ribbons in seafoam, turquoise, green, even white could be hung like seaweed or kelp. . .form a chandelier or to spiff up an otherwise drap light fixture.
326  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Ways to incorporate a Safety Pin on: March 23, 2005 09:49:20 AM
i always like those tiny brass aftey pins that come with new clothes sometimes. . .manufacturers use  a length of string tied to the pin to attach extra buttons, beads, what-have-you to the garment.  same thing could be done with favors or seating cards.  a length of thin, shimmery organza ribbon tied on on end to the safety pin and to a card or gift on the other.  if you wanted, you could then pin all the seating cards or favors to a pretty fabric board, clothesline, etc.

327  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Crafty Place Card Holders? on: March 23, 2005 09:44:05 AM
how about writing the names on pretty river rocks in gold ink?

or, cutting a slit in the top of a champagne cork and wedging the place card in there.

i like the fruit idea. . .cute, simple, and CHEAP.  you could even use those tiny pumpkins, since it's fall and all.

one thing i saw, i think on martha stewart, was draping a folded strip of paper (with the ends curled) on the rim of a champagne glass. . .the person's name printed on the paper, of course.  that way they have their toasting flute already with them.

329  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Opening Night! on: March 22, 2005 12:53:28 PM
maybe go a little simpler.

a gift (like a bottle of champagne for the two of you to share) and a card.  i've seen some cool cards with romantic or erotic scenes from bygone days (black and white/sepia photographs, or old woodcut darwings of exotic lovers, etc).

how does that sound?

april. . . .that's a great website.

one other thing i thought of:  cameras.  you could send a disposable camera with a self-addressed envelope for himto send back the film.  though now that i think of it, their packages probably get x-rayed which generally isn't good for film.

how about those tiny polaroid cameras?  and some film.  that could be something fun and small for him.

does he smoke?  cigs are always appreciated among us addicted folks.
