1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Can anyone recommend a wrap dress pattern? on: March 24, 2012 01:14:00 PM
Everyone says how wonderful they are, but I can't find any patterns to make one and they don't seem to carry wrap dresses in plus sizes in my area. I'm about a 26. Thanks!

These are very cute. I was thinking how pretty they would be attached to a note card.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Plastic Cat sand jugs? on: November 11, 2009 04:21:51 PM
I was thinking of washing some out and using for storage of fabric pieces, scraps for my quilting.

Or, you could put them outside. Make holes in them with a box cutter, insert small plants like herbs and strawberries and make a portable garden. I bet you could get at least 8 small plants in the sides, and maybe one up top.  Or put a tube down the center, with small holes in it, for easy watering. Of course, you'd have to make drainage holes in the bottom (and I'd stick some styrofoam peanuts in the bottom too for drainage and to keep the jug from being too heavy to move).
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Want to try dyeing... so how do I get started? on: November 10, 2009 08:11:08 PM
Are there any good websites I should look for?

And what supplies do I need? I need to try to go as inexpensively as possible. And my projects will probably be about the size of a fat quarter 18 x 22. I don't have much space to work in. I'll probably use the results for quilting... quilts, wall hangings, bags. Probably not clothing unless I do scarves. Usually muslin or cotton, possibly silk.

Would appreciate any advice.

Since I don't have a car and I DO have a space, maybe I'll imitate you next year!

I've also seen where people would use the selvage edges with the dots to make corn stalks on their quilts.  Pretty cool idea.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Men's jackets re-purposed? on: April 16, 2009 04:26:47 PM
I was thinking about going to Goodwill and buying a men's wool jacket and hacking it apart to use as the exterior of a bag (maybe the Amy Butler Sophia pattern).  Has anybody ever tried to do this?  Should I use an interfacing to give the wool some stiffness.

And I was thinking about using leather handles but don't know where to get those.

Maybe this bag would be more classic than using a cotton print for the exterior.

Back in the 1970s I remember my grandma and mom spray painting them black and stapling them together to form star shapes, and they would become wrought iron-looking wall decor.  You could probably find directions in that era's women's magazines.

 But do cut them up if you dump them, so the birds and other animals don't get trapped in them.

Curtains, wallhangings, room dividers, pillows, even nice sacks/totes.  Crafters could do a lot with them.  A sari teddy bear would be gorgeous!
