1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Guitar Noteboard on: August 15, 2004 01:58:39 PM
OK, before I start - I am not a "guitar murderer" as some of my friends have been calling me! Anyway, I got given this old guitar by one of my second cousins, who probably thought it would be a funny idea to "give the kid a broken guitar". Yes Philip, hilarious. A couple of weeks ago, some of the strings broke, and the inside got rusty, but instead of chucking the whole thing away -

1. I twiddled the neck apart from the body

2. I hammered nails into some of the frets, but not all the way (about 1cm out, if you like)

3. I stuck it on some hooks, and put it up.

And now it serves it's purpose as a noteboard/jewellery holder in peace. The end  Wink

Hi! This is my first topic on these boards, so please bear with me if it all goes pear shaped!

I saw someone had made purses and wallets out of tape measures, and I decided to do the same thing but revamped it a little. I basically took an old 60's red and white tape measure, cut it up to fit white cotton squares, sewed it together and added a wee red felt bow. Tute is ready if you want it! (if you don't, I won't be offended  Wink) Sorry for awful camera quality...

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Am not sure where to put this...sorry! on: April 27, 2004 11:43:17 AM
I'm making a fabric children's book for my GCSE textiles coursework (for those not in the UK, GCSE's are exams that you have to take when you're 16!) and am stuck on how exactly to fix it together!

If you can imagine this, it has 6 19x19cm square cotton pieces, and I want to fix two together at once, therefore making three pages. I'm not sure how exactly to fix all the pages together, so if anyone has any ideas, I'd be more then appreciative!

Thanks very much in advance!
