3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / meaning behind your name swap? [sign up will start around March 20th] on: February 13, 2007 08:48:50 AM
everyone's name means something! i think it would be fun to do a swap based on your partner's name's meaning.  for instance, melissa means honey bee, so everything would be bee based!  any interest?

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pet Rock Swap!? on: February 06, 2007 06:13:51 PM
i did this little project a while back, and it was a blast!  find a rock to make into a pet and personalize it by painting, glueing, etc then get a cheap little paper mache box (those brown unpainted things that nearly every craft store should have)  and decorate it to make it into a home for the pet!  you could even write up a little story about the creature!

For instance, my pet rock was made to look like a ladybug and i decorated the outside of the box with twigs and painted grass on the inside!  It was cute and fun!  any takers?

My hubby is totally in love with Invader Zim.  He actually asked for a stuffie of Gir and his dog costume for Christmas.  I thought I would add a little extra something, so i made Gir's little piggy friend.  Haven't gotten to Gir himself yet, but will upload the final project when finished!

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / cute reto-esque swap journal on: December 13, 2006 09:37:56 AM

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crochet felted evening bag on: November 08, 2006 07:46:30 AM
so you guys have me totally addicted now.  after seeing all the amazing felted-ness on this board i had to get into the act.  I found some nice wool yarn on sale at hobby lobby uber cheap and knocked this out yesterday.  Since im an old hat at crochet i thought that form of felting would be a good starting point.

Its approx. 5''x7'' and unlined and has no form of closure (no snap, button, etc) and the handles are gold embroidery rings.  do i need lining or a closure?  and i've been debating putting a gold broach of some sort on the front or a silk flower.  what do you all think?

10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / how do i go from fresh wool to ready to use? on: October 27, 2006 12:08:28 PM
we have our own sheep, and i am curious to find out how to take fresh wool and clean it etc to make it ready for dying and felting.  equipment-wise i have hand carders. 

when i was little and we sheared, i used to try and make yarn by hand with the freshwool...never really got more than a few inches, but it sparked my interest.

any help would be great

oh, if it helps, our sheep are rambouiet/suffolk cross (i know rambouiet is a wool breed and suffolk is a meat breed so the wool should be pretty good quality)
