I agree with Kate Conspiracy. use subdomains to your advantage. (www.whatever.com, subdomain= you.whatever.com)  you can make links to each of them from your main (about me?) page, or just give people the specific subdomain address depending on their interest/relevancy. search your web hosting website to find out more about their subdomain rules and how to set them up.

but I don't know how ethical taking a bunch of them would be!

When I was in college we'd use the paint samples/chips for all kinds of grid projects, etc. a lot of times those places throw away discontinued colors, beat-up cards, etc. and if you ask the counterperson they'd probably be happy to give them all to you. worth a try

That octopus is so cute. your color combo is awesome too. I actually like sewing on appliques, (unless it's leather) but the trick is to find the direction of stitching and holding the fabric that's the most comfortable. and I pin things down with numerous pins so they stay put while I sew. also making two stitches at once makes it go faster and more precise (i.e. down and back up thru the fabric without pulling the needle and thread all the way through)

That was the most amazing tutorial. I made a bag with an inside pocket like that but I just improvised looking at an existing bag. Your way of doing it is much easier, especially using the facing to sew the actual pocket on. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: stashbuster the crochet monster on: August 24, 2005 11:42:06 AM
That is soooooooo awesome. it's so cute, the shape and hair remind me of the fraggle rock characters. I don't really understand how you described doing the legs, but crochet is easy enough to stop and start and make it look good. i love the colors too. i'm going to make myself one with my extra yarn!

I would buy it, it looks very professional from the photos (no loose ends, mistakes, etc.) but I'd want more vibrant colors, i.e. red and pink, greens, black and red... also I agree that $5-10 is a good price, depending on size? good luck

What about using spraypaint to cover them if you don't like the writing? silver or black or something. even if it doesn't cover all the way it would look really textured. You could just spray the top so that the paint doesn't rub off on your skin. also you can cook the PLASTIC ONLY wrappers like skittles in the micro (or toaster oven I think) for like 10 seconds just until they shrink up. watch it and take it out right after it shrinks. that's good for earrings. anyway, I like the way you attached the closure. very cool

I like those kind of skirts, you did a good job. one way to diminish the "poof" is to iron the ruffle seams towards the top of the skirt (from the wrong side), then topstitch over them (on the right side) to hold them in place, it flattens out the seams so they don't bulge. put up another pic when you get the lace done too.
don't be afraid of zippers! sewing a zipper into any seam with a zipper foot isn't as hard as it seems!

that is AWESOME. If I had that many pantyhose I would make one right now. It's so earthy looking and I bet it's super comfy for your hands. I LOVE IT! great job.
