1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What do I do with all these old towels?? on: February 07, 2007 06:46:30 PM
1.  sew them altogether (kind of quilt style) and use it when you go on picnics, camping, barbecuing, etc...

2.  make a large beach bag for when you go to the beach or the pool, that way you can use it if you need an extra towel.

3.  if there are any decorative ones (like from a hotel or monogrammed) and staple them to the back of an old frame and hang it as art...and if you have a few that are similar you can do a collection!

4.  make an apron for when you're doing the dishes or cleaning (or crafting!).

5.  make car seat slip covers so that when you're on the way back from the beach you wont get sand all over the seats of your car.

dang...i've been thinking about this exact same thing.  i bought one of those packages like two years ago and still haven't used them...here's what i'm thinking of doing...

1.  glue them vertically around a glass jar (i'm using one from artichoke hearts) and place a candle in it...yay!

2.  glue a bunch together in a block shape and paint it green to look like grass and use them as decorations on shelves, or by the door to hold mail, or put something heavy attached to the bottom and use them as book ends...yay!

3.  get a round piece of wood or cardboard and glue them around pointing outwards (like rays of the sun or a flower), then glue a circular mirror in the middle and hang it on the wall...yay!

4.  cut them into little one inch pieces, soak them scented oil (for a while, not sure if they'll retain the smell, but in my mind they would).  then, put them into a dish (kind of like potpourri) and place an unscented candle in the middle, and (theoretically) the warmth from the candle would help the wood pieces give off their scent...yay!

that's all i've got right now...maybe i can come up with some others...hmmm...

I love the stretched fabric wall hanging with the girl's face. I actually saw this fabric at my local Hobby Lobby a few months ago and couldn't justify paying $9/yard for it. I could kick myself now though because I was thinking of making a tote or hobo bag with it and now I can't find it anywhere. I believe it's Robert Kaufman and I even looked on his site but only found the matching stripes fabric which I already have.  Do you remember where you got this fabric at? I'm dying to get my hands on a yard or two of it now but have had no luck at all.

Anyways, love your apartment decorations. I need to get working on my apartment.

indeed, it was hobby lobby.  i got a few yards from some friends for my birthday, and some from parents...unfoutunately it was last year at the beginning of fall...

It looks good - and we have the same floor lamp .... you can change the shade in something more fun - much more that you are in the arts  Wink from where did you get the fabric?

most of the fabric is from hancock fabrics...some was gifts...

very cool.  i may have to make a sleeve for my ds now (all the "socks" i have for it i crocheted).  and i wonder why the pinks (i assume you're waiting on pink, right?) are on back order.  there were a huge stack of them when i got mine a coupld months ago...oh, well. it's worth the wait to have a girly ds...
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: The Post Office Hat with pattern. on: January 11, 2007 06:24:42 PM
so i gave the hat a try because it looked really cute (and simple) but after doing a round of the puff stitch i got aggravated because i really don't like this stitch so i changed it to the bobble stitch...i like the way it turned out but next time i think i'll try the popcorn stitch...
