1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need about 13,000 small, white buttons. on: June 15, 2009 09:33:49 PM
So my boyfriend and I are going as Jack and Meg White for Halloween:


I'm going to get us suits and hats from the thrift store, but then there's the buttons. It's about 13,000 of them....any ideas as to where I can find these for a reasonable price?

(I didn't really know where to post something like this, so I'm do apologize if this is in the wrong place)
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / I made my boyfriend a panda! Wait, he's a panda now? on: April 29, 2009 01:42:35 AM
Correction: I did not turn my boyfriend into a panda, but I did make one for him.
So he really loves pandas. And he's a super talented guitarist.

So heres this. Smiley

He's has a bowtie, and a little tiny top hat. His guitar has a proper headstock with tuning pegs and all six strings and frets and the whole shebang. The last picture is next to my chapstick (Burt's Bees. Represent! Smiley ) so you can get an idea of the size of this cute little guy.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Looking for those tiny airplane bottles on: October 27, 2008 10:47:40 PM
Helllo. So I got a really cool idea for some lighting in my apartment, and I need a bunch of those tiny alcohol bottles from an airplane. Anywhere from 10-100 would be good. Wasnt really sure where I would find those, aside from flying 17 flights and getting trashed on all of them, so I figured I'd just ask.

Thanks! Smiley
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Scored big at the thrift store! on: August 22, 2008 06:47:50 PM
So I found this AMAZING old Singer for $20 at the thrift store today. Works great, came with tons of extra parts. The only problem? I don't know squat about sewing machines. Whoops. SO far all I could find were these numbers: 185K and CAT-8-1
Not sure if those do any good but I would love to find some user manuals or guides or something for this machine so I can get it going.

5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Allergy issues on: July 10, 2008 09:00:05 PM
Hello. Smiley
My best friend recently found out that she has a very severe skin allergy to formaldehyde, which is commonly used in perfumes, scents, etc... So, we were wondering if you have any recipes that have scents without formaldehyde or anything similar to it.

Thanks much!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / I can't find my.... on: July 30, 2007 07:25:24 PM
Knitting needles! Arrgh! Usually I lose my scissors (which I found while look for my needles). Why did I have to loose those needles just when I am about to sit down and make something!?!?

Doesn't that just drive you mad when you can't find the crafty tool right when you need it?

I swear, I'd loose my head if it weren't attached.
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Petroleum Substitute? on: April 16, 2007 08:13:41 PM
I'm dying to make my own lipgloss, but all I ever find are the recipes that use petroleum jelly.
I'm extremely allergic to petroleum (it does horrendous things to my skin; I don't even want to know what it would do on/near my face!) in any form. Do you know of something that could be substitued for the petroleum jelly, but work just as well?
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Zippers and ducttape? on: February 15, 2007 11:08:22 AM
I'm taking a cycling trip next year, and have decided to make my bike panniers (which are essentially saddlebags) out of duct tape. Anyway, I want to attach some industrial strength (well, maybe not industrial, but the strongest I can find!) zippers rather than using buttons or strings to close the bags.

Have you any experience with zippers in your duct tape bags? I don't own a sewing machine, but I'm pretty good at handsewing, so I was thinking of taping the zippers in, and then sewing over them once or twice for extra security.

Any other suggestions?
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How on earth...? on: September 10, 2006 01:08:47 PM
Found this website...am now desperately wondering how they made those little tiny people, and what medium was used. Any idea?
(it's in Russian, hence the, er, lack of English. Tongue)

10  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Found some good info on shoe-making on: August 29, 2006 06:37:15 PM


I'm guessing to make a really good last, wrap your foot snugly, but still comfortably in plastic (Saran) wrap, than in tin foil. Pull the whole thing off (without distorting), fill with plaster, and let dry. For a sturdier mold, cover the plastic wrap with duct tape instead of foil.
