751  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Magazine Envelopes! Recycling never look so gooood :D on: November 19, 2007 12:15:13 AM
My cousin in Denmark used to send and still does, most of her letters to us in envelopes like these.  I used to spend a great deal of time at age 19-21 making them, I used to have a whole boxful!  You totally made me miss them.  I think I will have to make some sets for gifts.  Great ones to use are National Geographic magazines.  They have vibrant photography in them.  Thanks for rekindling an old love of mine!! (now 31y.o. hehe)

Actually so far so good.  Both my family and my husbands family and our friends clamor for handmade things, so much sometimes that I can't keep up with the requests and then I feel bad.  But I know the feeling... Our cousin in Denmark used to send us handknit sweaters back in the eighties that were SO NOT COol but then I wore them as I was older and wish I had them now because they would be so hot! but as a kid we thought they were ugly...and now that has been on my mind as I am a knitter...what tremendous work she did!! and I have been feeling guilty

I ve been doing about 75 percent or more handmade for the last three years, and I think it makes me think about my childhood when this was more common.  I only have two other good friends who do this... most people purchase things.  I love having found communities online that support this idea for lessening the huge mass market merchandise that flood us every year after halloween...

As per rules... I am adding the totally not a tutorial description of what I did to make the slippers:

Neon green fleece. I traced my eldest daughters insole and added 1/4" for seam allowance, 2 soles for each foot (4 total). Then I folded the fleece and traced the top instep half of the slipper by tracing 1/2" around the top of the insole, the fold lying about midsole. This way I figured there would be enough fabric for the rise of the instep. Then I estimated the heel and side piece by (very advanced technique...I always seem to WING IT) by rolling the insole from side to side of where the top would align and adding a half inch to each end. This strip was about four inches wide, and I folded it down to double it. I appliqued a skull and cross bones that I drew on black fleece and cut out with ziggy scissors onto the top of the slipper instep. Then I sewed it down and added the backpiece. It ended up being a bit large so when she was in the slipper I pinched a bit at the back, sewed a triangle shaped piece at the achilles to take it in, snipped off the excess and viola! It needs some tweaking, but she ADORES THEM. It stretches to fit moms feet too...hehe
