I'm still ever so slightly confused about where you make the initial cuts.  How are they spaced around the straw?
Thanks in advance.  And props to all the shrimp-makers!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Making Glasses? on: May 06, 2005 04:38:24 PM
I've seen glasses for sale made out of spiffily printed bottles (like Pabst Blue Ribbon).  I'd like to make my own.  I've collected some bottles (Cock and Bull Root Beer, Prohibition Ale, Soux City Saspirilla)  but can't seem to cut through them.  I've tried a soldering gun (not hot enough), a file (took forever to make the smallest dent), and a glass cutter (either the bottles are too thick, or i can't get the leverage i need to snap the top off).  Anyone done anything similar or have any suggestions?

6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:Non-animal yarn help on: April 19, 2004 03:08:54 PM
hey -- i'm vegan too! yay us
i usually stick to cotton yarns -- depending on where you are, you can often get locally produced varieties -- but the commercial ones are great
i often like cotton blended with a bit of something else for stretch, but if you find a 100% cotton yarn that you love and want to use for a project you know should be stretchier than it will knit up as, you can substitute seed stitch for garter -- it will take a bit more yarn, but feel yummy
when substituting a yarn, i often look at a skein of what is suggested and try to find a cotton or cotton blend that mimics how tight the reccomended yarn is spun (besides mimicing weight and thickness) -- this is especially important for socks which require tightly spun yarn
i haven't tried the new bamboo yarns, but would like to hear from anyone who has, since bamboo is so very sustainable and strong

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / gum wrapper prom dress on: March 11, 2004 10:10:54 AM
i read an article about a texas teen who made her prom dress, earings, and her date's vest all of gum wrappers
sounds right up this forum's alley
but...i can't find a picture -- any help?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / vegan felting? on: February 11, 2004 11:28:37 AM
Does anyone know of any vegan yarns that will felt?  Or, is there another way to get bags and such sturdy without felting?
I really want to make the marsupial tote from Debbie Stoller's book, but, alas, can't come up with a solution.
