Too bad the same thing hasn't happened in the south. I can count on two hands the number of quality locally owned stores in my town, and I live in a town of almost half a million. Everything is a chain, I swear to you. Quite unfortunate, and makes me miss my home in Cali even more.

You are right, it does look  a lot better on you. It actually looks like it is supposed to be there. At any rate, wonderful job. Well put together undergarments take major skills.

I love this idea! I have a favorite pair of ballet flats that are just so scuffed and worn out, but I haven't had the heart to retire them, since I could not find a replacement. So FINALLY!
but does anyone know of a good leather alternative? I would like to be cow friendly, if possible. (though I might go the recycled leather jacket route if I can find something that is notwearable to anyone else- that way, now new cows will be skinless.)

I love granny squares. The second i learn to crochet I want to make something like this- possibly a granny square skirt.

I also really loved the wal mart episode of south park Tongue
wasn't the south park episode commenting on how walmart has a terrible effect on small businesses, and basically drains money out of communities?  or was that just my spin on it?
without wlmart i would definately miss the convenience of getting junk at 2 am, but it breaks my heart to think of how many small locally owned businesses they have put out of business.
also, bunnirific  where do you live that there isn't a walmart? i thought wal-mart had infiltrated every corner of the US. are you from ouside the states?
167  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The best kitchen accessory is a cute apron! on: May 18, 2005 01:57:47 AM
This particular apron was made out of a thrifted (and washed, of course) sheet- so I have plenty of fabric to make many more. The blue trim was a taffetta-ish material from someone else's prom dress, and the pockets are humungous eyelet, which was a bit too much as trim for me. On some future aprons I might use some smaller eyelet to trim out the bottom, but for now i used what i had. The stitching is a bit wonky and the pockets are lopsided, but it is fun and functional, so I am calling it a success.

168  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Retro Book Clutch on: May 18, 2005 01:48:09 AM
So, inspired by these clutches, among others, I tried my hand at a book clutch. I have to say, it went swell, and I plan on making a few more. The hardest part for me was finding a book that looked good enough to carry around, but wouldn't make me feel absolutely awful for destroying it. I finally settled on an outmoded diet book with a cute little embossing of an ice-cream sundae on the front.

You can't quite tell from the pictures, but I am also wearing some reading propaganda. an unintentional coincidence. "the sky is the limit with reading!" says the turtle reading a book, and tied to a balloon.
