1  A couple of aprons in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by river_roane on: August 29, 2005 09:27:56 AM
I finally got around to participating in Tie One On. This month's theme was "Mini Me"one apron for yourself and one apron for someone smaller than yourself. The only "person" I know that's smaller than me is my cat.

I didn't use a pattern. This was my first apron, so I kept it pretty simple. It's basically just a rectangle that I gathered and attached to the waistband.

All comments/critiques welcome!

2  Making glasses from beer bottles in What the heck can I do with THIS? by river_roane on: April 09, 2005 01:17:58 AM
I recently read an article in Readymade about how to "cut" a bottle into two halves by burning a piece of string on it. They suggested making terrariums out of the tops, but I remembered having seen glasses made out of the bottoms of beer bottles, and I'd always wanted to know how they separated the bottom from the top.

Well, now I know how to do that, but I have no idea how to make the cut edge safe to drink from. Can I sand it, or do I need to use a blow torch or some other method to melt it? I just really don't want to cut my lips or wind up swallowing bits of glass.

Here is a picture so you can get an idea:

Any suggestions are appreciated.
