There's a similar discussion going on at Metafilter here: http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/42249

and one person mentions a Target knock off of Spanx called ASSETS by Sara Blakely Unbelievable Underwear :

There are a couple of solutions:
1. try the pantyhose approach, especially a brand called Spanx which makes tons of under skirt type things that are for just that problem. (check department stores in the hosiery isle, or places like Amazon.com)

2. in the summer, I don't want the extra layers so I use a combo of an anti-chafing gel (like "body glide" (http://www.bodyglide.com/)  or Avon's anti-blister gel for feet, called Footworks...something) and a bit of baby powder. It keeps me chafing free all day! I've never had that until now!

Good luck!

I'm really hoping you can sketch the general shape/design of the panels. I've been trying to find  a pattern for a wrap dress designed like that and I haven't hit gold yet....until I saw your dress! I love the sleeve and dress length, and especially the way it ties in the back!

please post something....anything! Thanks!

It DOES have sharp edges. And I didn't alter that for my friend b/c I assume (b/c she's in med school) she can handle the sharps. But you should take care for any little ones when using this big galvanized steel.

1. it's heavy. And little tykes like to grab and pull so secure it ...securely to the wall or wherever you want to put it.

2. It's sharp. not razor sharp, or even aluminum can lid sharp, but still, sharp enough. Maybe cover the edges in metallic (or any color) duct tape. That would be a fun and easy way to protect it from lil hands.

Really, anyone could cover the edges in duct tape. Instant frame!

good luck!

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: iPod Book Case??? on: January 17, 2006 08:46:51 AM
I just finished an iPod book cozy for my boyfriend this weekend. I had to do a lot of tweaking to get the measurements exactly right, which took some time, and some experimenting with various kinds of x-acto knife blades. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out though. Here are the pics:

The cover:

The inside:

Here's where the earbuds store:

And where the iPod goes (I cleaned up the edges a bit, and sealed the sides and bottom with mod podge after I took this photo):

And finally, the top where the earphones can connect to the iPod while in the book, if you like. (sorry it's a bit blurry)

I'm dying to check out Archie McPhee some day! I've never been to Seattle but hopefully some day I'll make it there.

Another awesome place I've heard about but have never been to for little plastic things is Uncle Fun in Chicago.

Uncle Fun http://www.unclefunchicago.com/  is the best. I get little plastic dodads there all the time for pennies!

Ah yes, I'm sorry for that mistake. It was galvanized steel that I bought. You can just ask at your local hardware store about sheets of it. I found mine at a smaller place that had better customer service than the big box stores. Like I mentioned, it was around $6 and was pretty big. Like a big sheet of poster board.
