31  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Apparently I'm not a quilter on: September 07, 2008 06:31:58 AM
keep at it, for sure. I think it's cute as heck, I love the idea of all cherry themed fabrics and i like how the scale goes up as you  go out from the center.  I'd consider myself an intermediate quilter, that is I've made a few quilts and other small quitled things and it's almost never exactly like the pattern says it should be.  I just square it up and add strips where need to make it the right measurement- in the end it's part the pattern i started with and part all my own.  Keep in mind that you'll lose some fabric to seam allowances and unless you have a special foot to measure with I find its hard to keep everything really exact.  But then again I come form the Denise Schmidt school of quilting, that is it's better if it's a littel off...

I always buy the colored/patterned bubble mailers.  These are soooo cute. I'd love to hear your process, that is, if you don't mind sharing...

edited to add:
I made my own padded mailer last week. The only thing I did differently is that I used clear contact paper on the outside. I scored the paper backing in the appropriate placed to affix the wrapping paper and then went from there. the contact paper flaps left worked at the tape and to seal the envelope once it was full. My mom said it arrived intact!

This is a swell idea. I"m thinking about making one lined w/ oilcloth so it can be wiped out.  I've never sewed w/ it though....

LOVE the contrast- I do that too, so many patterns are just too cute and go together so well...

your fabric looks like cotton gauze.

That is very cute, I Love the green.  To make it reversible, did you just put buttons on either side?  I thought about doing that, but it seemed like the buttons would irritate her skin...
This 'fabric' is actually a sheet I picked up at my local Gabe's for $5; queen sized, so I"m also in the process of making a skirt for myself.

the spoon  as a pendant blank is very clever. Personally, I love the one w/ the key and tiny gears. gonna check out your shop!

I really like these- and i like how you  used big pink erasers. I think carving up shoe soles is a cool and innovative idea. I bet the chaco river sandal soles carve up nicely.  what tool did you use to do the actual carving?
*so completely adding yet another craft to dabble in*
40  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Graham Crackers on: July 19, 2008 07:35:53 AM

These came out great! I used this recipe:
http://bakingsheet.blogspot.com/2005/04/shf-7-graham-crackers.html. Next time I want to try to substitute brown rice syrup for the honey, since I bought some and really want w/ to experiment - but I could not get that jar open.
The dough comes together really nicely

I got about 20 3 inch crackers out of this recipe

they come out of the oven a bit floppy, but crisp up nicely after they've had a chance to cool
This guy liked them and even asked for more , so I know they're kid friendly

He's a better measure of the success of a recipe since he's so picky little bunny rabbit however will eat most things, well she'll try them at least. This guy will eat only life cereal, string cheese, strawberry yogurt and pbj. I'd like to experiment w/ making these chocolate grahams in the future.
