Ooooh, I LOVE that idea!  It's simple enough to not attract attention, should be easy to find, and if I get lucky, I can find one that I can disassemble for easy packing!

Unfortunately not - the area doesn't allow for a lot of space manipulation, so any displays I have need to sit on the table. And because I'll be taking a flight there, I don't have the space to pack a setup to support curtains and the like.

Although, I do like the idea of making gravity do the work for me... I'm considering something much less elaborate, possibly just one or L-shaped supports with hooks drilled into each end to hold the trellis open diagonally, though I worry a bit about stability.

What will be their base support and what will they be supporting?

They'll be supporting postcard sized prints(attached with ribbon), so the added weight will be fairly minimal.

 The base support I'm still mulling over as well. I'm considering using two small pieces of wood in order to make a triangular shaped base, but I thought the support would be the important part - once I had that figured out, I could change the idea of the base to help make it work!

A little while back I picked up some expanding trellis from the dollar store, similar to these small ones. I want to use them as a table display for an upcoming convention, but I'm having issues with the logistics.
My intention was to use them so they expand vertically, but this means I'd need a way to "lock" them into the expanded position. This is where my brainstorming has fallen apart.
Any ideas, crafty folks?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Brainstorming with bleach! on: June 14, 2012 04:21:42 PM
Howdy, all you crafty folks!

I'm making a purse out of denim, and I'm planning on decorating it using bleach. Right now, I'm considering either doing some space print type thing, or doing what someone else did here on Craftster with jellyfish, or something simliar.
I'm still not 100% sold on either idea(or combination thereof), so I thought I'd drop by and trawl for ideas! Any fun designs or ideas, just throw them out there!
It's a very simple purse, similar to a messenger bag, so there will be a nice flat surface, plenty of room to go crazy on. And the denim is quite dark, so there will be a great range of how things could stand out.

There are TONS of tutorials out there for fabric flowers that you could make out of some bright and cheery fabric, and then sew on. I think they'd look great clustered around one corner. Just make sure you've got a good heavy duty needle!

Oh, this is excellent! I love the idea of the combable fur for different expressions, and the teeth are just adorable. Reminds me of those wonderful floppy puppets on childrens' shows.

Try looking at some of these tutorials: http://babylondonstar.deviantart.com/gallery/5061515
Although you won't find exactly what you're looking for, these tutorials are a really good starting point to make something close to what you want.

Here's the only kangaroo pattern I've found in my hunts: http://www.sewingpatterns.org.uk/kangaroo-sewing-pattern.htm

I also think that with a bit of editing, this dog could make for a cute stylized kangaroo: http://www.womansday.com/home/craft-ideas/craft-project-little-pup-103939

Good luck!

These look wonderful! I love the idea of using one of these as a mini-purse!
And it sounds like a great idea to use nail polish for painting the eyes, they look great!
