2  marbleized gift tags w/ tutorial in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by craft-o-matic on: February 11, 2006 07:44:25 AM

These are several gift tags I made using spray paint. I used these for Christmas and will be making more for Valentine's day.

Here's the How-to:


spray paint in several different colors
tray filled with shallow water (the disposable pans at the grocery store work well)
pencil or other pointy thing


Fill a shallow tray with water. Take your different colors of spray paint and spray them on the surface of the water. (not too close, and it doesn't take much). Use a pencil to manipulate the surface of the water to create a pattern. Place paper on the surface of the water and make sure the entire surface is in contact with the paint/water. Then lift up by the corners and set aside to dry. You will need to reapply paint each time. You can remove residual paint in the water by wiping it away with newspaper in between applications. Use a paper punch to cut out tags from one big sheet. Also try it on different flat objects, ex. boxes, picture frames, make envelopes, book covers... possibilities are endless.

3  Help needed on how to finish edging on cabled scarf in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by craft-o-matic on: February 08, 2006 10:25:23 AM
I'm rather new at knitting and I decided to take on something a little more challenging: like cables, and ribbing, and frilled edging all at the same time... Well, everything was going great until I got to the end and needed to do the frilling. The directions tell how to start out with the edging and decrease down to the number of stitches you need, but I have no idea how to do the reverse!  Huh

I would be truly grateful if anyone could offer suggetions.

This is the last line of pattern that I worked up to where the fringe would start:
p3, k3, p4, k3, p3

This is the edging pattern:
(64 stitches to start with and then down to 16 for the cable pattern)

Row 1: *k2, lift first of these 2 sts over second adn off the needle; rep from * to end. (half the number of stitches remain)
Row 2
: *p2tog; rep from * to end. (finished number of stitches remain)
Cont. in main fabric of garment or cast off.


Would it be best to do the edging and sew it on, if so, how what is the best way to do that?

4  Re: Ornaments in Winter Holidays by craft-o-matic on: November 23, 2005 09:09:34 AM
I made a Georgia ornament this year and I plan on making others and embroidering something like "Greetings from Georgia!" or "Have a peachy Christmas", etc. to give to our family. Since my husband is in the military and we will move around alot, I thought it would be fun to make a state each time we move and atleast put the date on it.

The "state" is only 3 inches tall. The back is solid green like the color in the ribbon.

5  Re: need english to bulgarian translations for embroidered onsies in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by craft-o-matic on: November 23, 2005 07:09:31 AM
thanks for the idea. I guess that was too easy for me to even think of. Nevertheless, I live too far from town so I looked up "wonderful" on an online translator and came up with this. I have no idea if the english wonderful has the same connotation in Bulgarian. It would be kind of funny if it translated to something like "great" or "good quality"  Wink I don't think she'd want her baby to wear that!

Anyhow, if anyone can read this, does it mean wonderful? Thanks.

It was so cool to find this thread! I graduated high-school in that Cathedral (I went to St. Vincen'ts Academy - the girl's high-school connected to it). It brought back tons of memories! I also went home to visit my folks a couple of weeks ago and took some photos in Colonial Cemetery. The cemeteries are so beautiful aren't they?  I absolutely love Savannah and wish I could move back there <sigh>.
