16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: jewelry made out of paper? on: June 15, 2005 03:40:09 PM
have you ever made paper beads?  the idea is fairly simple:: cut your paper into long strips (they may be long isosceles triangles... its been forever since i made these)  then wrap the strip around a pencil and glue the last bit of paper to the rest of the bead. slid of the pencil, repeat multiple times, and slid onto some sort of twine, ribbon, string and you have  a necklace..

sorry for the cruddy explaination; hope it helps

18  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Chenille Short Cuts? on: June 15, 2005 03:31:47 PM
please accept my apologies if this question does not belong under clothing; i thought it was the best fit since it is a sewing question...

so, yesterday i was at wal-mart when i discovered a product called "Chenille SHort cuts" by june taylor (on clearance for $3 for 216 linear inches) claiming to be the "quick way to create chenille. just cut, sew and fluff" .... the idea of the product is that you can make designs out of chenille; i want to add this chenille to the chenille fabric that is striped in order to re-create vintage chenille blankets (think white background with pretty flowers, all in chenille. very cute and very soft)

-- the product is a 2.5" x 36" strip of "chenille waiting to happen" that is three pieces of 100% cotton.  let me clarify the shape:: it is a rectangle with 5 long straight stitches that one is to cut between in order to create the strips of "chenille"   does that make sense?
-- one is to sew their strip into the desired shape (directly onto the other fabric) then mist with water and fluff with a tiny brush (instead of buying the brush they reccomend i am going to use an old toothbrush) to create the "chenille"

what i am wondering is this: was i completely ripped off because this is something any craftster can make by just sewing together three sheets of 100%cotton fabric? and making her own strips?
has anyone heard of a product like this before?  if anyone has used it or something like it, please let me know what you think of the product!

thanks so much
