Could you take a picture? That sounds extremely wicked.

Or a tutorial or something. I have tons of jeans I don't use anymore too.

Get some plaster of paris or cement and pour it into them.  After they dry, you have bookends!


You are a genius.

In fact, you all are. I may send them to you ktgotskills. Look, there they go now. *attemps to shove shoe in disc slot*

Thanks guys for the help!

I could... but would it retain it's converse-ish ness much? Not to sure... I guess for now I'll just try and work with the fabric. Thanks anyways!

My dad has pretty much lived for the past 15 years in converse, so you can imagine that there are old, holey ones that sit in the garage.  His are size 9( Shocked i no! And I can't wear them, being a size 4.5 teehee! ) low cut in a light blue colour- not quite sky blue, think more along the lines of faded-after-wear-dark-blue. I want to try and use as much of everything as I can, but so far I only have slight ideas for the cloth part.  I want stuff that I can use often, nothing artiful that will just sit ontop of my bookshelf with the rest of my art stuff. I have (I think, unless they are too scratched up) THREE pairs to work with, and since he has big feet thats a lot of cloth. A couple of things i thought might work are the converse wristband (I'm not really a punky or anything like that, so it might not really be "me")or somes sort of pencil case/purse/wristlet that would be just scraps sewn together. I hope I gave you a good idea of where I stand! Any suggestions would be apprieciated!

sorry I'm laughing but not about what you said
I think it looks pretty good, and I also think your teacher is a ***@#$*$*#&$*#*#*$&%!  I'd beat the poop out of her for you, because she sounds like a prick.
hahah! lol you had me laughing really hardly, and I keep looking up at it, reading it, then laughing again. and again. and again. omg i have to stop reading it!
Seriously, your teacher is stupid for giving you a D. I mean, does it seem like your the type of person to take it home and have someone else sew it? If you are, well then maybe she has reason to be suspicious. But I highly doubt you are.
Think of it as a compliment , even if it's a D. She didn't think it was yours cause it was so good! Actually, that doesn't sound like much of a compliment. It depends how you see it i guess Tongue
Back to the actual sweater, it's nice, and fuzzy looking, and something I can easily see myself lounging around it at home. And so warm... hmm...
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Christmas Wrapping Paper!! on: December 25, 2005 10:52:43 PM
- cover binders, books etc. Though this might be too christmas-y for the rest of the year. (or you could use the back side, so you can draw on it)
- MAKE MINI bOAT HATS like those news paper hats... hehehehhe!!
- make a one-use-only skirt for the fun of it, and twirl around for a while until it starts tearing and then you have to take it off
- tear strips and roll them into well err.. rolls and then make one really long roll and try to crochet/knit with it
(can you tell I'm the queen of unreasonable and very hard ideas?)
- "laminate" (aka bring out the clear duct tape) the paper and make little crafts like wallets and pencil cases and all that good stuff

That's all I can think up now, but I'm sure in the middle of the night I will wake up and think of something wonderfully excellent, and it will keep me up all night worrying wether I should creep downstairs and post it, or try to go back to sleep. And I will most probably chose neither, and stay trapped in a horrible between ideas stages until its about 3 in the morning and i fall asleep finally exhausted.

Other ideas, to just reduce all the wrapped paper madness is to buy tons of those gift bags, lots and lots of different sizes, and just reuse and reuse them every year. And if you buy those, you might buy tissue paper, and you just might make a fairy pixie skirt.  Wink

What are your main area of "expertise"? Maybe make something that saves space and reminds her of home, like one of those cool bulletin things where there are X's of ribbon so you can slip pictures under, and include some pictures? Sorry I don't know what it's called, though I know some craftster has made something like this. Maybe you could make a "Insert the city/area you live in here" in a box, and include favourite places you guys hung out and had good times. Or you could make her cookies/munchies. I know when I got homesick, food was my friend  Wink though you  might want to make it a healthy snack. I realise that all these things don't really have to do with the things she loves, but maybe you could adapt them by putting inspirational words in them (maybe write a line on the bulletin board, cut and paste magazine letters onto the "___" in a box, or OO!! make fortune cookies... heh that ones a little carried away.) And if you're the artsy type, maybe you can draw a picture of a beautiful sunset on an ocean etc etc. Hope I could help! 

 Smiley hehe he has a Santa hat! I'm gonna have to erase that l8r when the hats are all gone and I'll seem like a nutcase...

It looks great! Can we have possibly better pics on it? It looks fine, but I'd really like to see the inside and back etc. etc. Very very good, I must say I'm agreeing with what others say. It's almost to good to be true!
