Ooh - thank you! That looks very simple to do.
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / how to make fleece mitten liners on: December 03, 2009 08:30:06 PM
So I knit myself a pair of mittens which I really love, except that they are not very warm. (I used cotton which I realize was a bad choice) I think they are roomy enough for a fleece liner, but I've never made liners before. I suppose it's just a matter of sewing a mitten shape out of fleece but I am worried about how to make it so the seams are comfortable and that it doesn't bunch weird, especially in the thumb. Does anyone have any tips?
23  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What to do with an old piano? on: October 22, 2009 10:55:32 AM
It is still a work in progress!! We have removed the keys, but kept the strings because they are pretty. We painted the outside black and the inside white in order to reflect a black light that we have, but that didn't really work - I guess we need to find some special neon white paint.

My husband took off the front and made a new hinge so it will drop down over the keys like a countertop, and converted the place where the keys are into a drawer. We also have a glass shelf that we had cut to go on the inside but we haven't installed it yet.

So to answer your question, yeah it take a little bit of construction and we were just kind of figuring things out as we went along. It's been on the back burner for a while now but I'm hoping to get back at it this winter and I will post some pictures!

So I decided to try my hand at making some "creatures" and I came up with these little guys. They were named Li'l Duffsters by my friend because I made them out of leftover felt from our duff beer costume a couple of years ago (see below where I am being elbowed in the face by my husband). Meet Eugene, Mathilde and Waldorf (in that order)!

The pictures were kind of small, but from what I could see it looks really cute! What a great and unique idea for a card.
29  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: New to scrapbooking...do I have to use page protectors? on: July 18, 2009 03:43:46 PM
I have that problem sometimes and the best solution I have is to trim the edges of the paper so they are slightly smaller than the protectors. Sometimes the sizes of paper and sleeves are not exactly perfect. There's not much you can do about crinkly sleeves if you make 3D pages...

If you didn't want to use sleeves then you would have to find some kind of cardstock that is at least 1/2 inch wider than your scrapbook paper, punch holes in it to fit the scrapbook and probably cut separaters to put in-between them where it's bound so that you have some space in between pages for your 3D stuff. I've done this before and it's very time consuming. Plus, without protectors it's much easier to mess up all the hard work you did on each page!!

Super cute!! I don't think it needs a tail, you can tell it's a skunk without it.
