1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / PDQ Hat Pic! on: March 08, 2006 08:46:24 PM
I finished this hat in about 2 hours, maybe less? It really did work up pretty darn quick! I didn't keep track of the stitches very well, so it came out a little bit big, but it's still super cute and I love it!  Cheesy

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Laundry Soap Box!~Tutorial on: May 14, 2005 10:51:38 PM
Awhile back I switched from using liquid soap to powdered soap. Because I swear it has a stronger scent, and I like that! So after I did the eighty loads, that the box claims to provide, I didn't want to throw the box out because it's so cute with it's little handle and top!
So...here's my recycled laundry soap box project!

So you'll need to empty the box really well, because the soap tends to stick, I even took my vacuum to it!

Next I carefully removed the handles on each side and primered the box with regular spray paint, just to get the neon glow off!

Then I took the dried box inside and started decoupaging it with Mod Podge and old romance comics from the sixties
(oh how I love these!)

I left out some spaces so I could glue on other embellishments later.

Next I covered the empty spaces with some buttons and sequins, I even added some sequins to the handle!

Punched two holes in the top lid and in the middle, added elastic and a button closure.

Wah-La! Now I have a cute and kitschy box, perfect for holding my latest knitting or crochet projects!

I still have to figure what to do with the little green scoop that comes with the soap though, any ideas?
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Melt and Pour Soap on: September 11, 2003 01:45:13 PM
 I just made my first melt and pour soaps! I bought the molds and soap from Michaels, found a great deal on a double broiler at the Goodwill and Wah La! What do you think?
The white and pink soaps are a lavender and vanilla smell (kinda perfumey) but it smells nice. And the other two I got a little wacky with, I started putting in cinnamon then I added honey and bakers chocolate. I know don't know if that was a good idea for soap or not, but it smells devine!! Cheesy
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Soap Molds on: September 09, 2003 06:14:48 AM
I just bought my first heat and pour soap from Michaels last night, and am going to try to make my first batch of soap.

But was wondering have any of you made your own soap molds? I know about the Pringles cans and ice cube trays. Have any of you made fun shapes?

For instance my father in-law rides a Harley and I would love to make him motorcycle shaped soap. Or on the Pisces  Soap website she makes the "Toast and Butter" how do you make your own molds?
Or do you have any suggestions or non conventional ways to do this? Can you suggest any web sites.
Anything would be appreciated!
