The instructions were great! My material was so thick that I had to alter your pattern slightly to be able to sew all the layers - I did fur on the bottom and the top. I didn't take pics at the time but I can get some in the next couple of days.

Thanx again

I made one out of fake mink funfur and black silk for my friend for her birthday. It was the hit of the party. She said that it will be passed down in her family for generations. Thank you very much for this pattern. My sister said I should make them and sell them, but at the 6 hours it took to make i don't think anyone here would buy them for $120 a purse, and they are too time consuming to make them for less.

I love the name ookpic - I have a time life magazine with a picture of the original ookpic on it. How many people out there actually know what an ookpic is, eh?

Cds melt really well in the oven. I didn't have any records so I was melting cds to make bowls. I ended up cutting shapes out of the cds and then stacking the shapes and melting them together. They would make fabulous jewelry, window hangings, etc.

i sit and cut all my bags into strips, but i don't put them all together at once into a ball. I only add a few at a time so that the "yarn" making process isn't so boring.
So does any one know how to make a purse out of soda can rings?
I am going to hit my hubbies stash of fishing line tonight, that will make an interesting project.

(oops wrong key!)
You could paint said cover any way imaginable.
You could put shelf on its side along the floor and paint it black (my personal favorite for a tv stand)(stuff still stacks inside) [[[[[[
You could make doors out of scrap wood and ribbons and have a picture/pegboard/organizer thing on the doors.
Turn it sideways, place a scrap piece of wood on one of the shelves with some legs or a side table - voila - you have a desk.(sewing table)
You can take the whole thing apart and get some shelf supports and make wall shelves instead.
My brain is hurting, I can't think of any more right now.

Let's see....
You could rip the bck off and secure the bookcase to your wall with "L" brackets (to stabalize it) then you could paint it in any manner you wanted to.
You could sew a canvas cover for it, so that you don't see the shelves any more.

My chai recipe is:
2 pods green cardamom
1 stick cinnamon
4 whole cloves
8 whole peppercorns
1/4 tsp dried ginger

Grind all above ingredients in a mortor and pestle.Roast all above ingredients in a dry frying pan until aroma is released. Add 3 cups water to mixture in pan and bring to a boil, add 1/2 cup milk, 2 Tbsp black tea, and 2 Tbsp sugar. Sttep for 10 minutes strain and serve warm.

Why can't you cool this off and make sorbet out of it?

cutting glass is easier than you all think! Buy a cheap glass cutter at the hardware store and practice cutting the glass from old picture frames. Remember to dip the cutter in oil (I use WD-40 sprayed into a cloth tucked into a tin) the oil keeps the glass from "mending". The glass cutter needs quite a bit of pressure to make it's trademark "scoring" sound. Search Vicki Payne or stained glass on the web to explain how to cut glass. Once you start its hard to stop. I took a stained glass course for $80 5 years ago and still love to create with glass.
