A lot of these suggestion threads talk about covering the walls with fabric. I haven't been able to find a pic of a room that's had this done; anyone got a finished product I can check out?

I'm impressed, but how does it affect reception? I'd be worried that it'd act as a Faraday cage and block some of the signal. Other than that, great work! I really like the look.

You usually don't see them in crochet unless you're working in the round (in which case, it's nice to see where the row you're on actually ends ^_^).

Myself, I use a paper clip--I've got plenty lying around, they won't come out unless I want them to, and they're easy to work with. People ask me every now and then why there's a paper clip in my project, but it's not hard to explain or anything.

Thank you! (Sorry if the pictures are a bit grainy--my only camera's the one on my phone. ^_^)

So I hadn't seen this topic before, but I just finished crocheting a dozen roses:

The roses (more like rosebuds now that I think about it) themselves used the pattern here, and the rest was improvised. The leaves were pretty simple (ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc, 2 dc, 2 tr, 3 sc in next ch, (up the other side of the chain) 2 tr, 2 dc, 2 sc), the stems are just sc rectangles wrapped around coat hanger wire, and the ribbon's just a long sc rectangle.

Now the trick is shipping all of that from Missouri to Massachusetts. ^_^
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How sturdy are Starburst bags? on: June 14, 2005 09:53:01 PM
I've seen a few threads about bags made from Starburst wrappers. I'm interested in making one (I've got quite a few wrappers lying around from all sorts of candy), but they don't seem like they would deal with wear that well (bags tend to take a bit of a beating in school). If you've made such a bag before, how sturdy/durable is it and how did you make it that way?

I am. I'm not one to email people for no reason at all, though, so I'll just post here and skip the emailing part.
