1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: LED hair clips questions. on: September 09, 2010 07:55:11 AM
Is there a specific reason that you want to make vs. buy them? (did I just faux pas on craftster?)

But, you can buy whole bunches of them for like 5 bucks, without the hassle of trying to make them.

My husband does a lot of hobby work with electronics, so in *theory* I could build a motherboard with the crap we have around here. Plus, I want to be able to make some that are made to fit proportionately to a 7 year old, and some that fit me. Plus, running it through our dread falls so those light up, too.

I have lots of ideas, but at the moment, I don't know how to go about it fully.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / LED hair clips questions. on: September 07, 2010 12:22:21 PM
I went to a con over the weekend, and I saw some awesome clips as in the title. Basically, they were a small power source, a light, and fiber optic cable. I want to make some for next year for myself and my daughter.

Thing is, I can't find the stuff I need. I also don't know how to go about it. I'd like to have them so I could put some into our hair, and then weave them into our dread falls (felted wool - adding more "dreads to 'em).

Basically, some like felt, some rather make the face as they crochet.

I don't have a nearby store, so I don't do the felt as much. I generally try to embroider the faces on what I make. I have more yarn bits than I do felt! Smiley

That's adorable! He does look a bit wasted, doesn't he? Smiley

Welcome to the addiction.

Yay, old thread! This is what I get for not looking every day at craftster... >.>

Just made one, except it's red (it's what I had) and I lack stuffing. But, it's Easy as pie - took an hour from getting yarn out to weaving in the end! *grumbles about actually doing that*

Excuse to get more yarn, this is!

Like my husband just said, this looks like some 600+ year old set someone just found on a dig.

FANTASTIC work. Very well done.

My man isn't playing it. *I* am! Cheesy

I'm going to have to make one of these.

You know, I have a ton of bags like this for horse feed..... Ususally they hold my trash, but this is much better.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: what do you do with your remaining yarns of your crochet projects ? on: October 13, 2009 04:23:13 AM
I just take it all, stuff 'em into bags, and make starghans with 'em. Kids don't care as much if they're strangely colored!
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What did I do wrong with my cast iron pan? on: October 13, 2009 04:14:39 AM
I think, based on high school chemistry, random foggy memory, and just pulling stuff out of thin air, that the heat makes the iron molecules more active, boucing around more and more likely to bond with the oil. I want to say then when it cools, it "holds" the oil better in the pores of the skillet.

Washing it strips this oil out, making things more likely to stick.
