351  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Deflated exercise balls on: March 12, 2007 02:45:34 AM
I had an idea  to fill one with that expanding foam sealer and mold it into a seat shape by sitting on it and use it outdoors as a lazy chair/seat.  Butttt - I don't have a ball or expanding foam, but it should work - maybe

As for making it crisper, I would suggest using a thin but sturdy fabric so you don't get bulk in the folds and heavy duty interfacing of some kind.
It may not be as cute and cuddly as the lovely one you already have though...

Sorry to appear a dunce but not sure what a D20 (I know it is a dice) is used for.

Anyway her in Aussie we can buy a really stiff iron on interfacing which is used for pelmets so this may be an option, I use it for my fabric postcards. It would have to be cut to the exact pattern size as it is like trying to turn a tree inside out if it is caught in the seams.  Also trimming the inside seams back to a 1/4 inch or smaller will add to the crispness of the sides.

Hope this helps

I can remember many many years ago in primary school at Easter time we would have an easter bonnett/hat parade.  What do you think of this idea as a challenge.

Wow - I can see what you mean about them being alike - cool

Took my clock to the show yesterday (judging today), I rang first to find out if I could still put my grandfather clock in the show as a late entry, not a problem - YAY.  But the funny thing was that when I got there (really really late yesterday) I went in to see if I wasn't to late - nope - good, go out to get the clock out of the car, turn around and there are three people and a trolley to help me get my Grandfather Clock into the hall.  We all had a good laugh about it, and they where really impressed.  Now I have to wait until tomorrow night to find out how I went

Wow!  Did you steal a pic of my grandpa???  lol. 

That looks almost exactly like my gramps.  I love the clock Smiley  but I might be a little biased!

Wow again, would love to see a pic of your gramps - it is said that everyone has a twin somewhere in the world.  How cool to show my Pop his.  LOL.  We have a Rotary Art Show & Craft show on this weekend and hope that I still have time to enter it in.
358  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Re: Shrinky Dinks in Australia? on: March 01, 2007 01:29:31 PM
Hi All,

As a kid - mmmm - to many years ago now, I remember that we used to do this exact same thing  to chip packets.  Eat the chips, punch a hole at the top,  put them in the oven and watch them curl up, shrink and uncurl into a flat miniture. THen we would make them into key tags, earrings and stuff. Don't know wether it works with the new foil type plastic that packets are now made with but I think I will give it a try this arvo and make somthing racey out of them.


P.S. Newbie from North East Vic

Hi All

I am a very newbie (from Australia) and have been browsing through your wonderful site for the last week or so.  I do love a challenge and as soon as I saw this one I had heaps of ideas whip their way through my mind.  But settled on this one as my favourite.  I have posted pics of it on my blog at


Hope that you all like it
