These are SOOOO cute! I'm going to have to make my doggy-girl one - only it will have to be crochet, because I don't know how to knit. It'll be pinks/lime, I think. Thanks for sharing the cute photos!

Maybe you could have some hula hoops setting around too for some unofficial challanges. Or you could throw some playground type balls over the roof to each other. Or set up a volleyball net?

No, unfortunately, I didn't get any photos and they are all gone now... The original idea was to create jewelry from them. I had several people on another craft site interested in them for an open craft swap. But I couldn't really get the kinks ironed out. The roaches were a little lightweight, and they were not that sturdy - kept loosing legs or antennaei (sp.)...and about the best idea I could come up with for the 'settings' or whatever you call it, was to encase the roach inside a crocheted wire 'cage' of sorts. But then I couldn't get that to work right, and gave up. It just turned out to be too problematic and aggravating.

Ah, well...such is art! Wink

Well, I AM 50 and live in a small town (pop. 1000), and it's not any different for me than it is for you, strangely enough. I am sure there are people here who do crafts too, but I really don't know them...but I do know they are more the 'ducks in bonnets' types of crafts.

A long time ago, I used to meet with a group of much older quilters, and that was pretty cool, but most of them died or moved away. The group disbanded. And that wasn't really the type of craft philosophy you mean, but they were a pretty loose, open-to-other-ideas group, as far as quilting went.

I only had a couple of friends who crafted and their things were more traditional, for the most part. And now they are either moved away or too busy or just not really interested in crafting any more.

My DH and kids aren't really into my craft stuff, but I do have one sister and a grown niece and nephew who think I am really cool. Wink  I have sent them paper dolls of myself with paper copies of my actual clothes, and odd accessories... and they love my sock monkey stuff and my online Barbie scenes and stories. And laugh (with me, more that at me - LOL) at my shoe tree in the front yard.

Yesterday my grandson (10) and I were in line at Walmart, behind this lady that I sort of knew. She is a big-time gardener and asked me what I was doing with my plants etc. this summer. I told her that my gardening this year consisted mostly of the non-living variety... that I had collected all kinds of shoes, spray painted them in bright pastels and hung them with fishing line from the tree in front of our house. She was kind of puzzled, and didn't 'get' it, but everyone within ear shot was shocked when my grandson said, loudly, "Yeah and remember you painted all those dead cockroaches too?!" All eyes were on me then! *blush*

Great save! I love the patchwork fabric strip too. I reconstructed some jean shorts this way for my granddaughter, and they turned out really cute. Actually, I thought I invented this method. LOL!

Those are really nice! What did you use for the base of each?

I LIKE it! So, did you cut the sheet in squares? And the waistband - what kind of fastener did you use? Or is it stretchy shirt fabric? It's a great design!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: EASY Summer Skirts with matching Purse on: June 12, 2005 05:59:01 PM
!!! That is sooo clever! Yeah, I've seen the first type many times, and STILL plan to getting around to making myself one, but the second type is new to me. Now I want one of those too. Nice purse, as well.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My First Skirts - made without a pattern on: June 12, 2005 09:24:45 AM
Since finding this site, I have been so inspired! Here are my first two skirts. Both were made without a pattern and are just simple gathered waist types. I got the fabric on sale at Walmart. The black and white was $2/yd, and the rose fabric was $3.

And it doesn't show much in the photos, but the top and over-shirt(?) I'm wearing are part of a set I bought in Mexico. The top would be very simple to make without a pattern, and I think I am going to try that next.

If the photos don't work, you can go to the craftster picture hosting page - link on the right of your screen - and they will be there.
