I'd get some fabric glue and start embellishing all my clothes and shoes, like putting little sparkles in the eyes and teeth of the faces on my concert tees, or glue them to the straps of my date-night sandals.  Hell, I'd probably even stick them in a flower pattern on the nail of my big toe  Wink  Ooh la la. I'm jealous.

What are plastic crow beads. Could you please post a pic.

I'm not the OP, but I think they're similar to pony beads.

As for the original question, you could donate them to a school or a girl scout troop if there isn't anything you want to make with them.

They can be used as trash bags if you knot the end where the hanger sticks out. You may have to double them up, since they're thin, but it'll give you something to do with them.  Or packing material for swaps.
I've also seen Christmas wreaths made of them.  You take a wire coat hanger (you prolly have a bazillion of those too) bend it into a hoop, and tie as many fat strips of drycleaner bag as you can fit on there.  Fluff them out, and hot glue some ornaments on them, and bend the hook into a loop for hanging. They look kinda kitschy-cool, especially if the ornaments are of the gaudy vintage variety. I haven't seen one lately, but when I was a kid, everybody's grandmother had one to go with her fake silver christmas tree.

I LOVE that.  Great work.  You could so sell that pattern, or the suits themselves.  Everybody who sees it is going to want one.

Those are so cute  Cheesy  I love PJs (seriously, as soon as I'm home for the day, off with the street clothes and into the PJs even if it's still light out).  Homemade PJs would be the bestest. present. ever.

Great job and congrats on the pregnancy  Grin.  I like the diagonal, but I'd  leave the hem straight too.  Maybe instead of beads you could cruise the thrifts for a vintage brooch.  It's such a versatile piece the way it is and I like how you can dress it up or down and get a few hottiemama date nights out of it while the baby's still cookin'.

I love those  Cheesy  I know they would sell and the possibilities are endless.  Until I saw a tut here, it never occurred to me that I could make my own. I don't think it occurs to most people to DIY, especially shoes, and I certainly haven't gotten around to it, even with my love for ballet flats and very clear tut.  The generic pleather flats go for around $15 US at a discount store, so figure up the cost of materials and your time and add $15 to that maybe?

I think I have a case of shoe envy coming on.

Can't see the dress, so I looked in your profile to see if I could find a link to the pic there.  Didn't find that, but I did find your artwork, and it's absolutely amazing  Shocked
I love the sketch of the girl hugging her cat, and I Cheesy at the little nose-picking kid.

Well I was busy today and made three new cloth pads,

I like!  They look professional (not like mine). I like the polka dot one best.

I usually prefer the AIO variety, but I've just started to make some of the folding pads (from Sedrasmom's tut) for the same reason you made yours, and because I like having lots of cute pads with little chickens or shoes all over them. Cheesy

Oooh, pretty  Cheesy  I can't wait to break out the bead stash and last year's beaters.  I hope mine turns out as awesome as yours.
