I had to slide in before the end of May. Yay! i made it and i am saving the world too.

I used lady4feet's recipe for laundry soap. (page 3).  What a great idea and easy process.

Brought home all of the ingredients home in a canvas tote too!  My batch filled two big pepsi bottles.  The soap did a great job at cleaning my clothes, even let the sun dry my undies outside.  I totally recomend this to anyone.

Thanks lady4feet!

53  Old school tie dye never looked so good in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MargiePoo on: May 19, 2007 03:27:00 PM

I've been raiding thrift stores for old slips who need a home.  Pulled out some dyes and rubber bands and had a ball.  It is totally comfy since it is silky material.

54  sad tea saucers into something wonderful in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MargiePoo on: May 19, 2007 03:10:42 PM
This was for my mom for mothers day.  She has been hanging on to broken bits of tea saucers for ten years now.  She felt so bed for breaking them that she couldn't bear to get rid of them.  So i turned them into a functional tray for her.

I painted the tray, glued in the broken peices, grouted them into place, and then poured resin over the top to even things out.  I was super happy with the results.

55  The many faces of a slip in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MargiePoo on: May 19, 2007 02:25:46 PM
Bought a floor lenght slip form the salvation army.  dyed it blue and redid the hem by adding more material.  Came up with this...

Close up of the bottom...

Decided it wasn't really practical for anything.  So went at it again.  Cut off the hem.  Redyed it.  The colors weren't what i was hoping for. lost that pretty light blue and black dye did nothing.  added a ribbon on the bottom and a peacock feather iron on.  It's a bit short for my taste. i would probably wear pants under it.

Close up of peacock feather and new hem...

What do you guys think?  Should I have left it?

58  Any one heard of the butterfly loom?... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MargiePoo on: January 07, 2007 04:05:16 PM

So at Joann's (where i work) we have this thing called the Butterfly loom.  It looked real cool, but since it was made out of some wood or something is was like 20 bucks.  Even with a coupon it is a bit much for what it was.  I actually don't think we have sold a single on in the year we have had them.  so i did what any sensible crafter would do and i made my own loom out of a peice of cardboard.  so with that i made several purses for chirstmas presents.

59  Personalized Rubik's cube in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MargiePoo on: January 07, 2007 03:51:45 PM
This was my boyfriends chirstmas present.  This took alot of precise meauring and of course i didn't save the measurements, but if anyone is interested, i can figure them out again.  Basically i pealed off all the stickers off the rubiks cube, printed out small pictures, cut them up into nine squares and used mod podge to stick them on.  A bit time consuming but totally worth it.
