Search for vintage reproduction costume patterns - you should have no problem finding a similar style

Has anyone tried this?  I have a few AOL tins, tea tins and cookie tins that I am thinking about making into charms.

I was wondering would that work in a sizzix machine?

5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Need help re-vamping a mirror on: May 18, 2004 07:05:05 AM
Hello you crafty geniuses!

I need your assistance.

I just purchased this wood framed mirror for $2.50!!!  And I want to use it as an entryway, check to make sure you have nothing in your teeth before you leave, mirror.  Also it will cover the unsighly fuse box next to the front door.

The problem is, the mirror is 5 inches shorter than the fusebox. 

So I need to decorate it with an extra 5 inches.  Also, I don't want to add any width so only the top and/or the bottom can be extended.

Oh I almost forgot - the mirror is already really heavy so any addition should be relatively lightweight.

So that is where you all come in!  Help me figure out what to do!  I have thought of using my collection of vintage hankerchiefs to create a skirt for the mirror, I have thought of extending the top and botton with some light weight press board and painting the whole thing - but I am having trobule with a theme.

Thanks it advance for your help!

Looking at the shirt again, I'd also say, if you're going to make the cuffs bigger, you might consider pulling the collar off another shirt too, as the one on the shirt above may be too narrow for a shirt with big cuffs....

This may be not necessary I am wearing a shirt I purchased it has oversized cuffs with a regular collar and it lookies fine.

Slices down one side and use it to keep paper and fabric rolled up with no tape!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:The Stereotypical Knitter on: March 11, 2004 11:54:17 AM
And it occured to me that many people think knitting is just for old grandmothers.

I am a 34 year old, professional, single woman.  I have super short hair (use to shave the back) with a stripe in the front.  My co-workers usually think I am some party girl or I lead some alternative lifestyle.  Then I tell them I knit, sew and make jewelry and they nearly fall out of their chair.  

It is fun to see their reaction.  Also I was on the phone last night with this guy and I told him I am involved in all these activities and he asked "Don't you find people label you?"  

My basic response was that is not my problem.  And actually I feel very sorry for those other people who do label me.  I am doing something I find great pleasure in doing while those other people are so afraid of "how it will look" they live in fear and never find out what they really love.

I am sure this confidence comes from age but bottom line - I have no time in my life for those people who try to make me what they want because they are too afraid to be an individual.

One more thing about a sales tax number - if you plan on selling at craft shows some shows require you have a number.  

Also, there is always a potential that the IRS could show up and ask to see your sales tax number!

I would check out a book called "Jewelry Making for Fun & Profit : Make Money Doing What You Love"  Or something similar.

I have found these books helped me sift through all of the info.


P.S. - technically selling on the web you only have to collect sales tax from people who live in your state.  Any good checkout software or PayPal handles that part for you.
