1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Polar fleece as a stuffing? on: February 01, 2009 01:36:57 PM
Hey! I'm looking to make a cheap "sofa". My plans are to make a large cylinder out of fabric, and then make two "L" shaped sides, and sew it together. Now my original plan was to make it into a sort of beanbag couch, but I kept hearing things like "packing peanuts will eventually crush, and you will have to keep putting more in." So I was thinking, could one use little strips of polar fleece as stuffing? I'd assume it's cheaper, you can just ask people for their extra polar fleece.
Has anyone ever used polar fleece as a stuffing for pillows/cushions? Thanks a lot!

2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Glass fusing? on: May 17, 2007 09:42:45 PM
I think it would be very fun to make some fused glass pendants and what-not, but I don't have access to a kiln...is there anything I could do? Is the oven a possibility? Or anything else?
Thanks a lot! Cheesy

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Acid wash? on: April 23, 2007 03:33:54 PM
Hey everyone!
Does anyone have any info on acid washing clothes/shirts/whatever?
Or any links in the direction I should be lookin'?
Thanks a lot!

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / blowpens? on: April 01, 2007 04:49:09 PM
Hey, I found these stencils, and then I found out they were from an old blowpen kit I had from 6 years ago, haha.
Does anyone know if you can use blow pens on textiles?
I thought it would be a lot cheaper, 'cause I have a kit with all the colors anyways.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making Jeans Lighter. on: February 14, 2007 04:05:26 PM
Any tips on making jeans that SUPER LIGHT color, without giving it the "bleach spots" effect?

6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Getting shoe pattern? on: February 02, 2007 02:41:13 PM
Hey again gals 'n' guys!
I have some fancy new PLAIN WHITE WAL-MART SLIP-ONS!
Well I have some amazing lumberjack plaid, it's almost a fleece.
Does anyone know how I could get the shape of the fabric unfolded, without taking off the whole top? (I mean, I'm gunna cut the fabric off, but I need to leave some room to sew the plaid onto)
Anyone know the shape, or have a pattern for it?

7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Cologne scents. on: January 29, 2007 02:21:31 PM
So today I picked up some good smelling scents(Green tea and Sandalwood, I thought they smelt more like a "cologne" than the others did. lol) but then I decided I wanted some vanilla scent in it.
I tried one of the scents there, I liked it, but didn't have any more money.
So what I'm wondering is, is there any way to use Vanilla Extract(like the cooking variety, or what-not) for a cologne/perfume, or should I just save up some more money?
Thanks a lot!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hey everyone! Question on knitting a hat. on: January 18, 2007 04:52:14 PM
Alrighty, I've wanted one of those knitted beanies with a brim on them, but, I can't seem to find one, that someone else doesn't have.
So, could anyone lead me to a pattern of one? Is there one?
Also, my mom's knitting skills are kinda limited(yes, my moms, what can I say, I'm no good, I'm moral support), so a simple-ish pattern would be great.
Well thanks for the help!

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / question on embroidery. on: December 22, 2006 12:13:44 PM
On a side note, I'm new, and would like to say hi to everyone.
On topic, does anyone know how if it's possible to remove embroidery on hats, easily?
There are those flat rimmed hats(specifically with the stereotype "gangster") that have the "NY" or "A" or any random letter embroidered to the front.
But I think there is a layer of fabric on the inside, covering the embroidery?
Anyways, has anyone tried this, or does anyone have any assumptions or tips?
Thanks a bunch!
