Krysdra -
I bet that looks lovely in your yard! I'd love to see pictures. I'll have to try this too.

I up cycle old clothes into patchwork quilts and have accumulated a big bag of unusable bits like seams, stained or holey bits, collars and skinny bits that are too small to use for anything. What do you guys do with these bits? I live in the UK and am considering putting them in one of those charity bags that comes through the door and is collected by a textile recycler (I donate my wearable old clothes directly to a charity shop). What do you you guys do?

If the pieces are big enough, I like to make tag blankets/"loveys" for friends with babies. http://www.chicaandjo.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/taggie_blanket_6.jpg
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Do you feel like there's enough fabric choice? on: April 22, 2013 02:50:44 PM
Just an opinion poll and thoughts really.
I feel like I can never find the sort of fabric I'm after, or it's just way too pricey (I enjoy sewing, but I can't let it drain all of my funds!)
There's nothing locally so everything is done online- which sometimes sucks because you can't see the fabric beforehand.
So I just wanted to hear people's thoughts on their fabric buying experiences. Do you feel like you have enough choice?

I love having plenty of choices so I can get the perfect fit between colors and patterns, so yeah I think there's really not enough choices. The most frustrating thing is going to a brick and mortar store and not finding what you need. I've pretty much exclusively moved all my material purchasing online.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Spray paint question on: April 22, 2013 02:46:16 PM
Hi!! I'm new here so I hope this is the right place to post this. I have a wooden high chair I'm spray painting with a gloss color. I have a few questions.

1. Do I have to sand between each coat? Will it be fine if I don't?

2. Is there a way to fix it if a small speck of something or a tiny bug gets on the wet spray paint, or if I make a tiny smudge? How do you keep from stuff sticking to your work if you are spraying outside??

3. I originally chose a yellow gloss. I did just the tray today (sand, prime, paint). I don't like the yellow and want to do red, what I originally wanted. Can I just sand the yellow and spray over it?

Thanks so much!!

I spray painted a crib last summer. I only did one sand to begin with. And then I just coated it with paint, then did a gloss finish. I think you'd be just fine to paint over the yellow! As for the getting stuff on it while outside, I can't help you there, a dandelion blew right on it and I had to sand that part and start over! Good luck, post pics when it's complete! Wink

You constantly have glitter EVERYWHERE! In the lines of grout in your kitchen, between the wood of your hardwood floors, in your hair, on your face...I can't seem to get rid of it!  Wink
