1  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Anthropologie Tessellated Headband CAL on: April 08, 2007 06:17:15 PM
I am going to be starting a knockoff of this (no longer available) headband this week, and thought I'd open it up for CAL, since there's lots of Anthropologie fans here.

The cover on the elastic is obviously knit, but it could be crocheted by either crocheting rounds or crocheting a rectangle and sewing it into a tube. It looks pretty easy and fast, too... seems their version only has sixteen hexagons.

Anyone up for a quick CAL?
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Fleece Cleaning with Kerosene? on: March 20, 2007 12:33:18 PM
I was reading "The Joy of Spinning" today, and Kluger writes that she was given a tip about cleaning fleece. The tip is to add a quarter of a cup of kerosene to the initial wash. She claims that the wool doesn't pick up the scent (if you've never smelled kerosene, it has a very strong and unpleasant scent), but I'm doubtful.

Basically, I was wondering if anyone had ever tried this, and could verify that it doesn't pick up the scent? Or does anyone know of a website where someone writes about this? I tried Googling, but all it came up with was cleaning metal things with steel wool and kerosene + motor oil.

Thanks a bunch!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Greeting Cards on: November 10, 2006 01:00:10 PM
This is a basic question, but bear with me--I'm not a paper craftster!

I want to make a set of greeting cards for a friend as a Christmas gift. My idea is to purchase one or two old books of fairytales and cut out the illustrations, and decorate the cards with them. I also plan to get sliver and gold glitter pens and other cutey decorations, but she loves fairytale illustrations, so I want that to be the main motif.

My question is: What should I use to adhere the cut out pictures to the cards? Would Elmer's glue work? Or do they make special glue for cardstock? Should I consider Mod-Podging it on, or would that make it look shiny?

I'm really quite clueless about this! Any advice or suggestions?
