21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Skirt and Yoga Mat bag on: September 25, 2004 02:58:18 AM
I wasn't sure if I should post this here on in the clothes section, but since I'm more proud of the bag, the bag section won Smiley

So here are my latest - made out of a large piece I had of cotton fabric intended for children's curtains, which you can see below.
apparently nobody wants dark curtains in the child's room, so this was on sale.

I found the pattern for the Yoga mat bag here on craftster (but changed the way the strap is attached and made it out of the same fabric), and the skirt is a simple a-line, no pattern..

Comments are welcome!

We used to make them all the time as kids (and never poked anyone's eye out Smiley)
The bow is pretty straight-forward - just find a stick that bends.. you need one that is not so thin that it will snap the moment you pull on the arrow, so the best thing would be to tear one from a tree (if you don't feel too sorry for the tree) - they still have enough moisture to bend nicely.
Tie a strong piece of string on one end, bend the stick, and tie the string to the other end. voila - a bow Smiley

use any straight sticks (thick wooden sewers with the pointy end sanded off, just regular sticks that are straight enough) for arrows - and make a small slit in the end of the stick, so that it can "sit" on the bow's string.

It's not ultra-high-tech, but the nice thing about these bows and arrows is that they're so cheap you can make lots, and the kid will learn a lot about how different curves of the bows affects the flight of the arrow, and which sticks make the best arrows, and how not to poke people's eyes out..

Thank you ALL for the great ideas!!

I never even thought of seeds.. now I'm thinking of buying those small terra-cotta pots, making the molded paper, and sticking the paper on wooden skewers inside the flowerpot..

I love the ideas - keep 'em coming!

26  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding give-aways? on: February 21, 2004 11:38:20 AM
Hi everyone!

I'm getting married in 3 months (exactly! eek!  Shocked)
and looking for ideas on what to give our guests at the wedding..

Before you start thinking about heart shaped boxes and wedding bells - we are having a young-people-only party, with alternative music (think grunge and electronica), and the main idea is that everyone can come and do their own thing - there will be room to dance, and to eat, and to sit and talk and even to sleep.

So, obviously, none of the cutey-pie ideas work.
We want something that people will actually be able to use later on - I thought of marble magnets (but I have no idea what to put in them), but still looking for inspiration..

any ideas would be more then welcome.. I love the stuff you guys come up with!

27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re:Cheap backsplash for stove on: February 21, 2004 11:23:33 AM
I have a book with this great idea for a backsplash
that's fun and fireproof -
You get a few metal cans (some nice, foreign ones look especially good with this project),
remove the top and bottom, make a cut along the side and flatten it with a hammer.
Then you have yourself a nice flat metal "tile", and you just use those to tile the wall behind your stove.

I haven't tried it myself yet (so I don't really know about cleaning or rust) , but I will get the picture from the book scanned and post it soon!

Slick, that is lovely!
I don't even know if you know, but the words you spelled in gold mean "peace" (or "hello", it's the same word in Hebrew), "Spirit", and "Alive".

I couldn't read the small black words around the frame - bet they spell something interesting too.. Smiley

great work!

Good luck, scandibird!

If it helps, the marbles are called "PARLOR" in Ikea (with 2 dots over the A)

Thanks all Smiley
actually someone mentioned to me that he looks like a teletubby - which was *really* not intentional.

The hair, as well as the eyes, are made from some leftover polar-fleece that I had lying around.. The rest of it is now a pair of comfy pants. I love making stuff from fleece, it's the easiest fabric ever!
