1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Getting Rid Of The Poofiness on: July 10, 2006 06:40:24 PM
Hello all you crafty people.I have a question.  I have this great Adidas track jacket that is a little too big for me.  Its an XL and I am a L.  The sleeve length is perfect but its a little too poofy around the middle.  Is there a way to make it smaller?

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Recycled Note Pads on: June 28, 2006 11:17:14 AM
     I was strolling down the hall at work this morning when I noticed the recycle bin was overflowing with manilla folders.  They were perfect except for some writing on the tabs.  I scooped them up and grabbed a big stack of scratch paper I've been saving and ran to the paper cutter.  I sliced off the folder tab with the writing on it, cut the folders in half the long way as well as the paper.  I fit the paper inside the downsized folder and stapled it on the backside.  I added a sticker freshly printed from my Dymo LabelWriter and WAHLAAAAAAAAH!  A custom made eco-friendly notepad for scribbling, phone messages, journaling, etc.

I was so inspired by the excellent sleeves I saw on here that I decided to try my hand a making one.  It's a hack attempt compared to all of you skilled crafty girls, but it's functional.  I used some denim fabric for the back and a section of an old aloha shirt for the front.  The inside is padded with a sheet of craft foam held in place with Velcro.  It was a fun project and this old dude even learned how to sew a little!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / The Cat With No Hat on: January 05, 2006 01:00:27 PM
Hello all...I am in a quandary.  I have been asking my significant other to crochet a simple rasta style hat for me for a few years now.  She is very busy and never has the time.  I could go out and buy one, but I would really like to have a handmade one.  What do I need to know in order to crochet one myself?  Are there books for clumsy beginners like me?  Thanks in advance for the help  Smiley
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Aloha Scarf on: January 03, 2006 09:28:38 AM
Happy New Year!  I have an idea that seems pretty cool to me.  I wear Hawaiian shirts a lot and I'd like to make an Aloha scarf.  I have a bright red wool scarf that I am going to sew remnants of an Aloha shirt on.  I'll post pics when I am done.  I am looking for advice though....should I attach the aloha fabric to just the ends of the scarf or should I try to cover the entire length of the scarf?  Any and all input is much appreciated!
