1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Get a Clue jewelry set on: March 19, 2011 01:36:57 AM
I totally love the idea with the red herring. If you want it more herring-like, maybe you could do one using polymer clay?

The fingerprint in the magnifying glas is also great. Did you put it there yourself?

Overall: What a cool idea for a theme Cheesy

How about felt things?

I dont know the prices for felt in the US, but in Germany, the cheap felt sheets (about legal-size) go for 50 Eurocent, that converts to about 0,70 . Apart from that, costs for glue and/or yarn to connect your felt pieces.

And another one, near Sendling (!not Sendlinger Tor!):

Schttlstr. 14

Hi Retromiad,

I felt so angry at your sister-in-law as I read your post. Most people I know appreciate home made stuff. I think if I was in your situation I would try to get my own little fun out of it: Id sew something for my nephew and add a lable and even a price tag (saved from something bought at the store) and then try to find an occasion to give it as a gift, maybe via another person so the sister-in-law doesnt suspect a thing! Imagine what a delightful feeling everytime your nephew would wear this. Might even tell the sister-in-law some day.

I like the second "older" ones even more than the first pics in the post. They have a style of their own. Like beautiful illustrations from a childrens book.

I just love the first one. I think it would fit nice into a series of 3 or so similar ones with variations on the theme.

I think something that doesnt get spoiled by water (rain, if you want to wear the belt outside) would be best unless you find a way to seal the ends off really well.

There seem to be two basic options:
1. Something long like cable, ribbons, chains etc. or even a light set. These will stay in place and not move around too much if you secure the ends.
2. Small parts that move around. If you take something that does not make too much noise moving around inside the tube this might be fun to watch.

9  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / Re: Any knitters who can speak Albanian? on: August 13, 2007 02:44:25 PM
Hi indenial,

seeing no one has answered your post so far I thought I might make a suggestion:

I speak some basic Albanian but I am no knitter and do not know the terms. But I do have a good German-Albanian dictionary (yes, German, I do not know the English knitting terms even but its never too late to learn  Cheesy) If you tell me the words you are looking for, I will try and find the German meaning and whether my Albanian dictionary contains them. Might be worth a try.

I am curious what you want to do with them? I have met some Albanians who are really good at chrochet and a sort of bobbin lace.

10  EUROPE / GERMANY / Craft stores in Munich on: August 08, 2007 02:28:08 AM
In the "yarn stores in Munich" nancyta wrote she looked for craft stores in Munich. Here are some I can think of right now:

Miscellaneous craft supplies:
"Creative Store"
Theres two of them that I know of. One in the Karlsplatz basement, underneath Mathser cinema. It is separated into two stores, one mainly craft supplies, one mainly art stuff. There used to be another at Gasteig (s-bahn station "Rosenheimer Platz"). I am not sure it still exists, though.

Quality art supplies:
"Schachinger" (www.schachinger-muenchen.de)
This is in Josephspitalstr. 6 (near Karlsplatz)
Besides an assortment of colours/paints/pigments, brushes and paper they also sell materials for gilding and soapstone at reasonable prices

Electronics small parts, wire, cables, materials for metal etching and stuff for model making:
"Elektronik Conrad" (www.conrad.de)
It is located in the "Tal" street, between Marienplatz and Isartor.

Paper, general craft supplies, fineliners etc.:
"Kaut Bullinger" (www.kabuco.de)
This store is quite expensive in my opinion.

There is a small store in Dienerstrae (www.daimer-filze.de) selling all kinds of felt imaginable.

General craft supplies:
"Kunst und Spiel"
Located at u-bahn station "Giselastrae" in Schwabing. The craft supplies are upstairs. Small but nice collection, if a bit on the "pedagogically correct" side. Nice assortment of pearls, not the plastic kind creative store sells but glass and metal.

"Perlenmarkt", Nordendstr. 28

And, of course, various hardware / diy stores.
Amongst the more easy to reach by public transport are:
1. "Obi", Westendstr. 221 (u-bahn station "Westendstrae", about 10 min. walk from there or 1 station with the tram.
2. "Praktiker", Balanstr. 52 (Take Bus 54 which leaves at Ostbahnhof and get out at St.-Martin-Str.). Best is to wait until they have their 20%-off-everything-except-petfood offer which comes up something like every two months for a week (will be advertised in tv)
3. "Toom Baumarkt", Grillparzerstr. 20 (about 7 min. walk from s-bahn station Leuchtenbergring but you can also walk from u-bahn station Prinzregentenstr., there is a tram station nearby, might be 19 but Im not sure)

I might post some more if I can think of something.
