331  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Making Glass Beads on: September 29, 2006 04:29:05 AM
Curosity has stuck me in the glass genre. Not only in eventually learning glass fusing, but in making glass beads and other items.

Is there anyone here who makes their own glass beads, stained glass etc. with a kit like this?
This is something I have been toying with getting before jumping in with both feet and getting a kiln.

Insight, comments, suggestions would be great.  Smiley

There are other interesting fabris there also.  Smiley
333  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Too Cute! on: September 23, 2006 06:54:21 PM
Found this while looking for another item, but it was too cute a hat pattern not to post. It may have been posted previously, but I checked and could not find it anywhere.

Cute Hat (and baby) Smiley
334  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I'm Puzzled on: August 26, 2006 08:29:21 PM
This is my first attempt at jewelry, and I wanted to try something out of the ordinary. Although a little 'unprofessional' with some of the joining, overall I think it is okay for a first.



The puzzle idea has loads of possibilities, especially in the hands of more experienced jewelry makers. But I did have fun with it, and may try other recon jewelry ideas I have.

All comments & suggestions welcome:)
335  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / 2 Ribbon Pillows (Plenty-O-Images) (Tutorial added to first post) on: August 21, 2006 04:23:44 PM
On a recent trip to Target I saw a pillow made of ribbon. The cost was $19.99, and I knew I could make it for way less, especially since I already had most of the materials on hand. Smiley

While my daughter is home from college I have been redoing her room in pink, black and white (her choice of colors, but it is turning out great). The first ribbon pillow I made is for her room.

This is the second one:

Both on her bed:


  • ribbon - assorted colors or all one depending on what you like
  • fabric for backing, and back of pillow - amount depends on size of pillow you are making
  • matching thread to sew
  • fiberfill or pillow form

1) Take ribbon and cut into even lengths for weaving.
2) Attach even number of strips of ribbon on one side, and top of a backing fabric along the left edge. This will hold the ribbon while you are weaving it.
3) Begin weaving the ribbons from the left corner, and working your way to the right and bottom. you can use straight pins to secure it on the ends if needed.
4) Once all pieces are woven to complete the form of the pillow tack or sew a small stitch on the ends to hold in place while forming your pillow.
5) Pin right side of fabric to right side of woven ribbon, and sew around edges. Leave enough area to stuff your pillow.
6) Stuff your pillow then stitch closed the opening.

That should complete your pillow. Hope this tutorial helps.  Smiley

These were my first attempts at rag quilting. I am completely in love with this method of quilting now.

I use mine (the white and burgandy) all the time, and the blue one I made for my in-laws.  Smiley
