1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Huge Vinyl Movie posters on: August 28, 2009 06:38:28 AM
I am the proud new owner of several of those huge 8X5 ft, or bigger maybe, movie banners.  They are made of a slightly stiff vinyl.  Two are Tim Burton's Alice (squee!!) and one is Ponyo (also very cool).  I was thinking about making bags from them, but I am not sure if the vinyl would hold up or if it might become brittle, or even if it would really use these to their full potential. The pockets for the dowels are sew with very long stitches, so I know I'd be able to sew it.  Ponyo is the same on both sides, so no sacrifice there.  Both Alice posters have different images on each side, so I'll have to be choosy there.

They are Awesome and I would love to just hang them whole, but I think it'd be a bit much and even then I'd have to pick who shows and who hides.  What do you think would be the best way to use them?

Paper tape seems to be the better way to go, especially if you are looking to avoid sticky pins.  If you don't like the way the wrap job looks, you can just add another layer of paper mache over the top.  A few layers of tissue paper would look nice to finish it off, and is thin and flexible enough to handle any curves.  The thin brown packing paper would also work well... I just got about 6 yards of it when RockBand came from amazon.com -.-

Very cool!  I love the picture of the eye and I really like the crochet on the back as well.
The white stuff on the edge is either eyelet or lace, I think.  Smiley
Well done!

Your version is so pretty!  I would have passed right over it, just looking at the picture with the pattern.  The lovely solid color makes all the difference, very victorian looking.

I've not heard of this specific recipe before, but it sounds really tasty!  I've bookmarked it for future use. Smiley  Thank you for sharing your family's recipe.

Awesome stuff!  My daughter just turned 6 is having her party on the 3rd, but wanted a Halloween theme as well.  Are the mummy dogs made with refridgerated breadsticks?  They're so cute!!  Grin

It might be neat to dress it up a bit with a bead between each one Smiley  Neat idea!

When you use the plastic rolled boning, you want to put it in so that it curves toward the outside.  When you lace it, it will conform better to the body and help avoid the gapping at the top and bottom that a couple of other posters mentioned.  When you put it in the way you have it, the boning pulls the garment away from the body.  Hope that makes sense Smiley
