41  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / need a name for crafty program on: October 04, 2005 03:03:43 PM
Starting January, I'm planning on a crafty program a month here at the library (I'm the teen librarian). 
Can anyone help me think of a catchy name to umbrella the programs under?  I'd like to appeal to middle school students (basically, the kids who are used to coming to the library for crafts, etc), and I'm thinking
So far, here's what I'm planning (all TOTALLY subject to change)
Jan--ribbon bulletin board
Feb--turn a hardcover book into a notebook (I found the tute somewhere on here)
March--maybe knitting (if I'm good enough or can find an inexpensive outside "expert"), maybe combined with make yr own needles
April--melt & pour soap
42  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / melt and pour soap amounts? (for a library program) on: October 04, 2005 02:45:51 PM
With melt 'n' pour soap, is it as easy as one pound of base makes one pound of soap?
I'm thinking about a soap making library program, and want to know how much I'd have to buy.
Also, does anybody have any other advice for teaching several teens to make soap at once?
43  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Chynna Clugston-Major/Blue Monday swap? on: August 29, 2005 10:32:49 AM
I was rereading comic books when I should have been cleaning the other day, and got all sorts of Clover cross-stitch and Ashton stencil ideas.
Anyone else interested?
If you want examples of the comics, www.onipress.com is a good place to start.
44  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / drink umbrellas on: August 10, 2005 05:53:48 PM
I've got almost 2 gross of little drink umbrellas, and if we could come up with a library craft for teenagers with 'em, that would rule.
Also, I've got a bunch of those small rubbery fake frisbee things from gumball machines.  Since the cats won't play with them, maybe I could craft them without kitty interference.
45  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / my new project--I hope it works! on: August 08, 2005 02:53:40 PM
Remember in the 80s, how your mom would buy fabric with, like the Care Bears on it and make you a pillow shaped like character?  I thrifted a bunch of that patterned fabric with Strawberry Shortcake's pets.  I'm planning on sewing together Custard, the cat, with some canvas inside to make it stronger, and having a long across-the-chest strap that somehow involves dark green velvet ribbon, also thrifted.
I haven't quite though through the strap yet.
So everyone think good crafty thoughts, and I'll post a picture when I'm done!
46  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / pattern-search help on: August 08, 2005 11:37:10 AM
I don't crochet, but my mom does.  After falling for the French Connection overly 70s sweater vest in the new Lucky (I just tried finding a link--sorry), I've requested she make me one. 
But she says she needs a pattern.
What I have in mind is a scoop-neck vest, form-fitting, that goes to about my hips, with a biggish afghan-style crocheted square on the back.  Has anyone seen a pattern anywhere for something like this?
47  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / search is down--help me? on: July 18, 2005 01:31:06 PM
I have a couple questions:
Does anybody have an easy way to transfer drawings/patterns to cloth?  Right now, I trace onto the back with a ballpoint pen or something, then outline on the front with a disappearing quilting marker.
I'd love if there was an easy way to make iron-on patterns.  Is there?

I've been wanting to do some unicorn stitching, but I need a good pattern/drawing.  Anybody have one?
48  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Bill and Ted swap? on: July 11, 2005 04:44:32 PM
I'm not craftster-old enough to host a swap, but would anyone else be interested in an all Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and/or ...Bogus Journey swap?
49  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Puzzle postcards on: July 11, 2005 03:45:37 PM
I'm showing off all sorts of things I made, after finally getting a digital camera.

I thrifted the puzzles, put them together, then modpodged into about 3x5 pieces, then used as collage bases.  They go through the mail, too!
This is a close up of some:
50  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / ugly end table turned tv stand on: July 11, 2005 03:33:26 PM

I should have also taken a close-up of the knobs.  I made them from shimmery blue and silver Fimo clay I had around after making my mom a dollhouse-sized menorah.
Ever try to find a dollhouse-sized menorah for sale?  It can't be done!
