21  scenting rice satchels and extra fabric HELP in Winter Holidays by x0xmanda on: December 12, 2006 01:52:47 PM
hey everyone! Like many of you, i am making a couple of hot/cold rice satchels for christmas presents. However, i cant finish them because i dont have anything to scent them with. I dont want to use lavendar because... well, i just dont like it. What are my other options (not just scents, but products) and where might i find them? Thanks so much!

*edit* oh yea. so i was gunna make my little stepbrothers some pajama pants but it appears i underestimated them and got too little fabric. i think i got... 2? one and a half?... yards of each oh these. what can i make them instead?

23  flannel galore? now with pics!! in Winter Holidays by x0xmanda on: November 27, 2006 03:54:06 PM
Hi everyone. As im sure many of you know, JoAnns was having some super sales last week and i got sooo much flannel fabric cuz it was only 99 cents a yard (i know right?!?). So, i figured i'd just make everyone pajama pants for christmas. However, upon further thought, i believe i dont have the time to do that- especially because im a newbie with the sewing machine.

So my question is, what else can i do with flannel?
i was thinking pillows, scarves, boxers, hot rice satchels, and makeup pouches. But i have to make stuff for 5 guys (sucks being the only girl in the family) and i dont think they'd get much of a kick out of a makeup pouch. The fabric i got for them is white with red and green money signs and two others with deer and owls and stuff (mimicking abercrombie)

and just for fun, this is the material for my mom and friends, respectively:

So again, any ideas for projects that wont take very long made from flannel? I will be forever grateful!!  Grin Thanks!

25  Lumberjack Poodle Shirt! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by x0xmanda on: October 14, 2006 10:12:27 AM
Hi everyone! This is my first post of a project that i've done. I made a little shirt for my poochie out of a really soft, almost flannel i guess material and its plaid. so now he looks like a lumberjack! haha! Here he is modeling his new look!(and he only tried biting me once!!  Tongue)

He has eyes, i promise. He's just in desperate need of a haircut. Happy Crafting!

neighborhood boy and caution tape around the front of the house.

little ghosts hanging from the front trees.

if you look closely enough, above the bright ladder you can see our bats. we made the stand out of plumbing pipes, i think, that we spray painted black so they wouldnt stand out so much in the dark. it had two "arms" that the bats hung off of and when we turned them on, their eyes lit up and they made noise and flew in little circles.

i made this myself. its a styrofoam head wrapped in toilet paper. i stabbed a knife in there and then poured "blood" (a mix of corn syrup, red and green food color) by it for the wound. stuck it in a cape. hung it from a noose. cool, huh?

you can see the blood better here. oh yea and there's a little skeleton man in the ground.

skeleton from the window

giant 3-foot spider on his web. oh and by the bottom is one of the many sets of blinky eyes we had in the bushes and windows.

some fog from our fog machine. i dont have a picture but we made a fog cooler out of and old plastic box. we cut a ihole in either side ofthat and attached a bendy-tube with holes bunched in it to let fog out to one and the opening of the fog machine to the other. filled the box with ice, i think, maybe dry ice. the fog would go through it and cool (so it'd stay low to the ground) and then through the long tube so that it wouldnt all be coming out of one place. i hope that makes sense. ? Oh man, i wonder what my dad would say if he knew i was leaking all his secrets!!  Lips sealed

my jackolanterns

lit up

and just for kicks, thats me in costume with my glow in the dark eye makeup, pink hair spray, devil horns, and boa. woot!  Grin

so ok, now that you can see them, you like!??!
