rakechan's zombie dolls made me wake up the house LOLing. A+!

In other news, I have an idea, but I need some help!

My idea is to make my boyfriend a carrying case for his Guitar Hero stuff. He always transports his Guitar Hero stuff in the box he bought it in. I wonder if any wonderful ladies/guys could give me the proportions for the guitar so I can figure out how big of a case to make! Also, I am a newbie to sewing, so I'd prefer to avoid zippers, but I'll experiment and learn if it means it'll make the case better. Any thoughts? Maybe a messenger bag-style bag? Maybe a wanna-be guitar case, except scaled down so the controller will actually fit? Hmmm...

Also, we're both zefrank nerds. While I'd like to buy him a Show tshirt, I'd like to make him something, too. Plush duckies are a little hard. I can knit some--maybe a scarf with a duckie? I think that might be a little bit of an overkill because my goal is to make a Tux illusion scarf for his birthday in February...

Hm! Thanks! Cheesy

I need some ideas for a Christmas present for my father. He was paralyzed a couple months ago and will be coming home this friday. He used to be very active (he restored old 50s and 60s boats and played with his truck) and I don't know what to do now. I think it's too soon to give him anything boat or truck related, he'll be having a hard time once at home.

He doesn't really watch movies a whole lot unless he finds them randomly on TV and doesn't really have any hobbies aside from the boats and truck. He wasn't much of a reader (bad vision), and, quite frankly, I don't know how he's going to take up time once he's home. I'm working on getting an old computer with internet capabilities together for an accessible spot, but I'd like to do something else. I also think any gag gifts this early wouldn't be taken well, so I'm at a loss. Any ideas for any of you with experience with individuals in wheelchairs?

Also, my mother is amazingly stressed out over this (as one could imagine). I love the idea of the "Mom in a Box" with the marbles when she's lost them, the toy car for when we're driving her crazy, etc. Does anyone have any ideas for stress relief specifically? She's not into spas or slippers or baths... She enjoys crafts when she has time (she's the bookkeeper for a craft warehouse--you see the ad for it [createforless.com] on here a lot), reads quite a bit, and is very politically involved. Help?

Thank you!

I saw this tutorial today and ran down to WalMart. They had four different faux furs for $14/yd and then... well... it's hard to describe, but it looks like a trimmed and brushed out faux fur for $3.46/yd [that is, actually, significantly softer than the faux fur]. Considering my poor, high-school senior status, I'm going to make a prissy, forest green monster. I figure I can use it for a pillow during school it's so soft.  Grin  Thank you so much for the tutorial!

I am seventeen and have heard OF the Diva Cup but had no real clue what it was. I have and had horrible periods up until I started the pill (cramps, dizziness--it'd get so bad I would pass out) and tampons are downright painful. There's only one brand I can stand, but if I'm stuck having to buy something different I'm in pain. I'm also a Taekwondo instructor so using pads really aren't an option (I've tried).

So, this month I am going to buy myself a Diva Cup and see how it goes all because of this thread. Thank you for informing my poor, misguided mind. Smiley
